When it comes to children's behavior as emerging consumers, no one speaks with more authority than James McNeal. As a professor of marketing at Texas A&M University, Professor McNeal has been studying and writing about children for more than 35 years. He knows how they perceive the marketplace, how they influence and are influenced by their parents, how much discretionary income they have and what they do with it. This, his eighth and most authoritative book on the topic of kids in the marketplace provides a world of insight into a most important group of consumers, worthy of your attention. He answers many questions, including:
Just how big is the kids market?
When do children become consumers?
What are children's four basic needs?
Do kids really save more than their parents?
How much money does the average kid have and where does it come from?
At what age and where do children make their first independent purchases?
Why are the numbers six and seven more effective at getting kid's attention than other numbers?
What do children say is their favorite fast-food?
Are children more responsive to brands or promotions?
Why do so many kid's products fail?
Why do so many succeed?
How do children in countries other than the U.S. spend discretionary income?
Find answers to these questions and discover other fascinating facts about the economy and psychology of the children's market. Drawing from a broad cross-section of industries, products, and services, this book examines issues of advertising, promotion, product design, and packaging. It also explores issues of social marketing such as selling children on good health practices, charitable giving, and the importance of voting. It focuses on children's perception of the marketplace beginning with their first trip to the grocery store at a median age of two months. It follows through a predictable process in which parents encourage children to ask for things they want and then gradually teach them the concept of exchanging money for goods and services - a process which sets the stage for a lifetime's worth of shopping.
Perhaps the book's finest and most unique feature is the information conveyed in dozens of actual drawings done by children of varying ages from the U.S. and abroad. It's amazing how much you can learn from these illustrations when you have a seasoned expert to point out their most interesting elements and share his wisdom on the topics at hand.Review:
