CTP Topics: 

Shopper segmentation/profiles

How are we, as a society, changing and what impact does this have on shopping behaviours? In order to really understand our shoppers beyond the average him! are introducing new shopper profiles. These profiles personify the shopper trends identified as driving change for the convenience sector.

Key shoppers: Modern Health Enthusiasts, Cash Strapped Families, Authentic Aficionados and Cosy Night in Shoppers

Convenience through the years

With 20 years of Convenience Tracking, we have the depth and breadth to truly understand the industry trends and changing shopper behaviours that have shaped the convenience section, making him! the voice of authority in delivering convenience-tailored insights. We will take you on a journey through the years to highlight significant shifts in shopper behaviours and attitudes and offer some predictions as to how these are likely to change in the future.

Shopper Marketing

Shoppers behave differently in the convenience channel vs grocery and they spend much less time in store. The sector is also incredibly fragmented and complex and there is no data available to validate the ROI you get within shopper marketing…until now! Shoppers are on different missions, have different need states and different priorities in convenience and thus the power of shopper marketing is crucial in driving basket size and spend. Using a combination of in-store shopper interviews, POS audits, vision tracking of the shopper journey and sales data we can determine the performance and impact of in-store display material on shoppers in the convenience channel.
