The Art of Shopping

How we shop and why we buy
Whether you love it, hate it, or just get on with it, everybody is a shopper. From the poorest African townships to the smartest retail spaces in the world, shopping is an activity that constantly consumes vast amounts of our time, money and attention. It simultaneously drives commerce and fills our fridges. The things we buy contribute to our own personal sense of identity, sustaining us both physically and emotionally. Yet how much do we really understand about shopping? More to the point, how well do retailers and manufacturers understand the way we shop? In this highly readable, ground-breaking book Siemon Scamell-Katz, one of the world's leading analysts of shopper behaviour, provides a surprising look at shopper behaviour. Drawing on 20 years of pioneering research (from filming shoppers in-store to brain scanning), the author explains how people around the world really shop. The Art of Shopping explores what we actually do rather than what we think we do, how we really choose and make decisions to buy, and what really works for brands trying to persuade us to buy. The result is a book that will change the way retailers sell and people shop, forever. Author:  Siemon Scamell-Katz

Made With

The emerging alternatives to Western brands: From Istanbul to Indonesia

This book charts the emergence of a vibrant new type of brand from the emerging markets. This new type of brand is Made With – more concerned with design, community and fusion – rather than the classic Western brand that is “Made by” (by Coco Chanel or Steve Jobs) based upon the cult of the ego, icon, author and personality. Through following the inside story of these brands, the reader gets an insightful access into these newly emerging societies, their values and aspirations.

The region which this book covers is the Islamic Interland, taking in interviews with leading brand creators in locations including Istanbul, Beirut, Dubai, Jordan, Jakarta and many others across the Middle and Far East. In these pages you will meet the producer of a TV show that was a hit in 53 countries, Obama’s State Representative to the Muslim World, pioneers of the Arabic Web scene involved in $100m+ deals, social venture pioneers and activists, secular democrats and hijab wearing fashionistas, and a full cast of fabulous creative designers, entrepreneurs and artists in many different creative fields.

Implosion Quick View

Implosion

The Internet is behaving in a way that is affecting everything we do. And it is making us think about things in a way we never previously thought. The Internet is contrary and the opposite of previous inventions. It has enhanced a reverse polarity of discovery in which seeking to know more about what and who we already know (think Facebook, Twitter, Google) is now just as valid as learning new things. This is the “implosion” that this book examines and the great impact it will have on society and business. The creation of the Internet, the most significant for many generations, is driving culture inwards instead of outwards (like many of history’s other prestigious cultural innovations). It is an implosive force, annihilating and creating simultaneously. And it will change forever the way society and business communicates. This book offers a controversial insight into where we are heading in the age of the Web.

The 31 Practices

Every company has its own values and brand which it wants its customers and clients to engage with and develop loyalty to.

At the same time, research shows that 70% of customers’ brand perception is determined by their experience with the company’s employees. Moreover, 41% of customers are loyal because of good employee attitude.

This book shows how companies can translate their values and brand into the daily practices and behaviour of their employees, especially those who must deal directly with customers. Drawing its principles from psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience and leadership, the 31 Practices method has been successfully adopted by large and small companies around the world, and has been responsible for significantly enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

The Daring Book for Boys in Business

Solving the problem of marketing to women in male companies and categories

Why is it that some companies/brands succeed with women and others don’t? In sectors as valuable as telecoms, financial services, consumer electronics, cars, technology, gaming and utilities, women consistently report low levels of interest, and demonstrate lower levels of engagement than their male counterparts. Can companies really afford to miss out like this?

Successful modern-day companies approach the male and female opportunity as equally lucrative and exciting. They involve and include feminine interests in the development of their products, services, brands and marketing to ensure they appeal to the entire mainstream audience rather than just one half of it. This book reveals why it is that some companies succeed with women and others don’t. It outlines the key determinants that make up brands which appeal to both men and women, and the opportunities that presents.
