The authors of the Popcorn Report show you how to position yourself for the way things will be.
Faith Popcorn, founder of BrainReserve, the New York-based futurist marketing consulting firm, has been tracking trends for more than two decades, looking at patterns of behavior, technological advances, and evolving priorities and tastes to discover what the future might hold. Hailed as "the chief trend bender" by The New York Times and "the Nostradamus of marketing" in Fortune magazine, she showed in her bestselling book, The Popcorn Report, that ideas that heed future trends earn profits in the marketplace today.
In Clicking: 16 Trends to Future Fit Your Life, Your Work, and Your Business , Popcorn and Lys Marigold explain how anyone can CLICK (C=Courage, L=Letting Go, I=Insight, C=Commitment, K=Know-how) into the future by understanding what drives society today and using that knowledge to make better informed choices in their personal and professional lives.
Drawing on BrainReserve's experiences advising companies eager to develop new products, services, and marketing techniques, interviews with experts on thousands of consumers, and their own insights, Popcorn and Marigold identify the 16 hottest trends shaping American lives today and tomorrow - from seeking protection from the harsh realities of the outside world by "Cocooning," to becoming "Vigilante Consumers" by manipulating the marketplace through pressure, protest, and politics, to practicing "FemaleThink" by shifting values from a hierarchical model to a sharing, familial one.
Popcorn and Marigold introduce some of the companies and people who have CLICKed into the trends: Ameritech, whose consumer research area resembles a homey, cozy cocoon; the Barnes & Noble Superstores, with their cafes and reading niches that allow book-buyers and browsers to mix with others who share their interest, a perfect example of the "Clanning" trend; Kinko's, the chain of 24-hour copy shops, and The Body Shop stores, which demonstrate their grasp of "Egonomics" - the demand for customized service - by accommodating the schedules and the personal preferences of their clientele; and the men at the forefront of "Mancipation" (liberation from driven, "strictly business" male images and roles) who are full-time House dads or are adjusting their working days to spend more time with their families while reshaping their relationships with clients and customers away from the "my way or the highway" model of past decades. -- From the Publisher
