Featured Session: What Women Want to See, Feel and Understand about Brand Packaging

Terri Goldstein

Principal and Founder

The Goldstein Group

While a women's median income has soared 63% over the past 20 years, those earning more than $100,000 have doubled in a decade; 30% of women now earn more than their husbands. While women make 80% of all supermarket, drugstore and department store purchases, less than 20% of character trademarks in the retail landscape are female. Here, Goldstein will reveal the quandary corporate America finds itself in regarding how to target their brand packaging to women, while not alienating the men that women often buy products for.

In this fast-paced 45 minutes you will: Understand "her" and "his" disparate shopping styles: She is on an exploration; He is on a mission.

See how "her" visual territories are different from "his," while understanding the cross-shopping activity that informs her visual world.

Conduct research to uncover how she creates verbal and visual recall for the brands she consumes. Learn how to use these accurately to develop entry points for verbal branding.

Know how to remove 50% of the words from the marketing deck and transform into a motivational story line that she can share with her "village" of women.

Learn how the mind retains brand recall at retail (color, shape, symbol, words) and how these core-identifiers appeal to women and can communicate volumes in 5 seconds or less.
