EF webinar: Understanding and Planning for Consumer Changes as We Adapt to The New Normal

ITWP companies Toluna, Harris Interactive and KuRunData have developed Global Barometer that’s run in 19 markets every two weeks.  The study provides insights into the impact that the Coronavirus pandemic has had on daily life, the way people shop, the products they purchase, and ultimately what behaviors we anticipate consumers continuing when the pandemic is over.

We’ll speak about the following;

  • Government involvement – In the eyes of consumers, brands haven’t been perceived as supportive during this crisis. However, retail establishments have been well-perceived.  Many consumers feel that governments and brands need to work together during the pandemic, however they don’t see this happening any time soon.
  • Consumer stress and consumption impacts – Consumers are stressed and behaving differently as a result.  They report that they want to take care of themselves, but have also reported that they’re eating poorly, and taking less exercise.
  • Restrictions have been eased, what will consumers feel comfortable doing – Many are looking forward to business as usual, and venturing out, but they will be more conservative financially (and take fewer health risks).
  • Where will people spend, where won’t they – Again, we’ve seen consumers react to the pandemic in many ways.  People have reported that they will be more financially conservative, but do place value on giving back to their community and charity in new ways.

Attendees will have a better understanding of the near term, and longer-lasting consumer impacts and changes as a result of COVID-19.

How can you be nimble in the face of events that impact the trajectory of your NPO’s mission? Challenges even in the best of times seem to emerge by the day and with them a call to pivot campaigns and adjust operations.

COVID-19 — the most recent and wide-reaching hurdle to date — has asked charitable campaigns to adapt like never before: adaption necessary to ensure operational longevity, economic health, and continued stakeholder support of charities and non-profits. And also undoubtedly leaving a lasting, seismic impact on our campaigns and communities.

ESOMAR Foundation Webinar: Standing Out From The Crowd – NGO Marketing and Semiotics

The third sector is having an especially difficult time right now because of coronavirus. It’s hard to get donors to part with their money when they are worried about their own families and economic futures. But even before Covid-19, NGOs faced challenges of marketing themselves.

·         Challenges of differentiation. Some causes are rather over-crowded with similar charities so that it’s hard for the public to tell them apart.

·         Challenges of understanding donor motivation. In the private sector, brands are obsessed with consumer need. But where is the equivalent need in a potential donor?

·         Challenges of communication. Sometimes the marketing communications of an NGO are intended to say one thing but actually communicate something else to the public.

In recent years, a new form of research has become very popular with marketers. Its name is semiotics. It improves on traditional survey research in a host of different ways. Some of its key features are as follows.

·         It’s very cost-effective. Because it doesn’t usually involve asking consumers direct questions, you can do it for a fraction of the cost of a normal market research project.

·         It’s accessible. Semiotics is a craft skill that can be acquired by anyone who is motivated to learn. You don’t need specialist software or a degree in statistics.

·         The solutions it delivers are based on more than the preferences of individual donors. They arise from a deep understanding of mass culture. Donors aren’t all different from each other, their attitudes and opinions are formed by their membership of various cultural groups. With semiotics, you can address large audiences with culturally appropriate messages.

Dr. Rachel Lawes is the author of “Using Semiotics in Marketing” (Kogan Page, 2020), the very first book which provides a practical, step-by-step course in semiotics for marketers. In this webinar, designed especially for us, she passes on some techniques from semiotics that any NGO can start using right away to get donors on board and keep them there through difficult times.

ESOMAR Foundation Webinar: Measuring The Imagination

For our 4th Webinar of 2019 in the series: Advanced Research Techniques, we bring you some really new thinking: using the imagination of your audience to get them to really understand what you want to achieve and be inspired to help you.

Leigh Caldwell has long been at the forefront of research thinking – he was applying the theories of behavioural economics before the rest of us had even heard of it! And his new approaches and applications are truly pushing the boundaries of modern methods.

The latest discoveries in neuroscience, psychology and behavioural science tell us that people use their imagination a lot more than we used to think. It is not just for playing games or making up stories: the imagination is a crucial tool in making decisions, planning our future, remembering the past and even in how we perceive the world around us.

Consumer brands are starting to measure the imagination of their customers in order to optimise their marketing and product design. But these new discoveries could be even more important for NGOs and charities.

Your relationships with donors, supporters and volunteers are based largely on how they perceive and imagine the outcomes of your work. So to design your communications, fundraising strategy and even the way you deliver your services: you need to measure their imagination.

Leigh Caldwell will talk about the new science of the imagination, including “System 3”, the third component of the brain. He will show how you can create a map of how your audience imagines the world, and put your organisation in the perfect place in that map – to generate the greatest engagement, highest donations or most passionate support.

Register for our Webinar on Nov 21st and learn something really new and different. It’ll certainly make you think!

Leigh is a cognitive economist and founder of Irrational Agency, which leads the insights industry in turning the latest science into powerful market research tools. His book The Psychology of Price shows how to apply behavioural economics to pricing strategy, he has presented several times at ESOMAR Congress, as well as at the world’s leading scientific conferences in psychology and economics, and he was featured on the inaugural GRIT Future List in 2019.
