American mothers are household CFOs, in charge of an estimated $2.45 trillion in direct spending. They are also an important influence on other family members' buying habits. Many organizations have identified moms as an important customer group, but the broad, age-based definitions these companies work with mask an array of different consumer behaviors. Written by two leading marketers, this book provides a new approach to understanding the “American Mom” market, examining the mom’s influence on (or control of) the purchasing habits of children of all ages, from infants and toddlers to young adults, and bring focus to the frequently overlooked purchase influence of moms on teenagers. The authors combine large-scale quantitative research of more than 4,700 mothers with qualitative case studies from individual participants. Highly recommended for practitioners in retailing and product development, this book will also be a valuable supplemental text for college courses in consumer behavior and marketing strategy.

It takes more than a baby to make a mother, and mothers make more than babies. Bringing together a range of international studies, Motherhoods, Markets and Consumption examines how marketing and consumer culture constructs particular images of what mothers are, what they should care about and how they should behave; exploring how women's use of consumer goods and services shapes how they mother as well as how they are seen and judged by others. Combining personal accounts from many mothers with different theoretical perspectives, this book explores: How advertising, media and consumer culture contribute to myths and stereotypes concerning good and bad mothers How particular consumer choices are bound up with women’s identities as mothers The role of consumption for women entering different phases of their mothering lives: such as pregnancy, early motherhood, and the "empty nest"

The food industry is on the verge of a revolution, with smaller, local and regional food brands finding big potential for growth. The increasing influence of millennials on consumer tastes, the desire for products produced locally, and mistrust of big food companies open opportunities to small and medium-sized food companies. An experienced consumer packages goods marketer and his team have created a book to help navigate the looming volatility in the food industry. For instance, the U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts that the sales of locally produced foods, which reached $12 billion in 2014, will soar to $20 billion by 2019. A 2015 study by the Food Marketing Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers Association found that smaller and private food brand manufacturers grew 4 percent vs. the 25 biggest U.S. food and beverage manufacturers, who grew 1 percent between 2009 and 2013. Moving Your Brand Up the Food Chain offers practical tips to help local, small and emerging food brands compete against the big brands to grow their market share. Interviews and survey answers from industry professionals provide invaluable information. The book covers the retail buyer’s perspective, marketing, external market factors, brand development, packaging, brand management, strategic product development, and more. Such details are critical if local, smaller or regional food brands hope to grow their businesses and move up the food chain.

Critics of this new book might argue the election of President Obama is proof that racial, ethnic, gender and sexual preference barriers have been torn down, and marketing to these attributes isn't all that important anymore.This book takes the position that instead of getting pushed to the background, multicultural segmentation needs to become more sophisticated, and take its rightful place--front and center.With decades of experience in multicultural marketing, author David Morse reviews the history of marketing to black, Hispanic, Asian, and LGBT (mostly lesbian and gay) consumers. He explains how including appropriate cultural cues in advertising can build brand loyalty that will pay huge dividends. He also cautions that missing the mark with advertising that excludes or is culturally offensive can be a costly mistake.Replete with scores of examples of campaigns that have been extremely effective, as well as those that have sparked outrage and boycotts, this book provides EIGHT basic rules that should guide you through the process of marketing as diversity becomes mainstream. Recommended, for all levels of management and any student of marketing or advertising.

In 2004 Kevin Roberts wrote Lovemarks: the future beyond brands. It was admired by many as a breakthrough in marketing thinking but was also controversial because of its surprisingly obvious thesis: that emotional connections are at the heart of sustained relationships between producers, retailers, and consumers. While many companies were using the language of war in their marketing (target, penetrate, ambush), Roberts was using the language of love (mystery, sensuality, intimacy). He explained in simple terms what people are often loath to admit: we make decisions with our emotions over our reason. Lovemarks described the journey by which brands could move from consumer respect based on intellect, to consumer love based on emotion—and in return gain "loyalty beyond reason." In 2010 Advertising Age magazine named Lovemarks one of their "ideas of the decade," while noting that the roadmap for brands to achieve Lovemark status was still not entirely clear. Loveworks: How the world's top marketers make emotional connections to win in the marketplace adds to the original Lovemarks by showcasing real-world business examples and outlining the roadmaps followed by several world-renowned brands to achieve Lovemark status: Procter & Gamble, Toyota, Visa, General Mills, Miller, T-Mobile, and Lenovo are just a few examples of businesses winning in the marketplace through the application of the Lovemarks theory, maintaining laser-like focus on making and sustaining emotional connections with consumers. Loveworks features 20 case stories from clients and markets worldwide in widely varying categories. "My book shows that Lovemarks thinking works—anywhere, anytime. All it takes is having the brains to implement it, the guts to see it through, and an abiding faith in emotion as your compass," says Brian Sheehan.

America is no longer a country but a multimillion-dollar brand, says Kalle Lasn and his fellow "culture jammers". The founder of Adbusters magazine, Lasn aims to stop the branding of America by changing the way information flows; the way institutions wield power; the way television stations are run; and the way the food, fashion, automobile, sports, music, and culture industries set agendas. With a courageous and compelling voice, Lasn deconstructs the advertising culture and our fixation on icons and brand names. And he shows how to organize resistance against the power trust that manages the brands by "uncooling" consumer items, by "dermarketing" fashions and celebrities, and by breaking the "media trance" of our TV-addicted age. A powerful manifesto by a leading media activist, Culture Jam lays the foundations for the most significant social movement of the early twenty-first century -- a movement that can change the world and the way we think and live.
