2 Delivering Preference The Marketing Clinic What we do We deconstruct the consumer consumption experience to understand which parts of that experience generate what emotions and why. Preference is: Positive Emotions Delivered

3 Delivering Preference The Marketing Clinic The Consumer Interaction Just like a story or a film – every Consumption Experience has a beginning, a middle and an end There is a story to be unravelled – the taste journey At key ‘Plot points’ (eg encounter, adverts, aroma, mid mouth, aftertaste etc) emotional shifts are triggered. These must be understood to ensure the consumer (audience) gets the right experience ……

4 Delivering Preference The Marketing Clinic Regionality: So What? Just as there are regional dialects – so there are Taste Dialects These exist across UK – just as they exist elsewhere Many markets are broken up nationally – is it not better to segment emotionally?

A new perspective:
