Frank-Martin Belz and Ken Peattie examine the role that online and social media play in sustainability marketing, and how they allow direct interactions between companies and consumers.
Getting beneath consumer segmentation and identifying attitudes and values that impact green consumer behavior
Today I attended a great session at Sustainable Brands conference by Suzanne Shelton, President and CEO of theShelton Group. Mainstream consumers are complicated. They know just enough buzz words to make you think they know more than they do, and most don’t actually go green to save the planet. How do mainstream consumers ACTUALLY make decisions about which green products to buy?
The Changing Consumer Marketplace, the third webinar in the Sustainable Brands Boot Camp, provided up-to-date insights into the changing green consumer profile and what motivates consumers to buy green in today’s economy. Companies can use this market research to craft green product value propositions and make green profile decisions. Key takeaways? Green pricing premiums won’t work in a post-recession economy and sustainability has reached a tipping point into mainstream.
