Selling to Simplifiers

Posted on November 10, 2008 at 7:40pm 4 Comments

I saw this article and thought how smart caught a trend at just the right time.

The Next Marketing Challenge: Selling to 'Simplifiers'

"Watch out for a new brand of consumer in 2008: the middle-aged Simplifier. "

"Third, their stuff embarrasses them. Their Range Rovers no longer tell the world that they are sophisticated town and country socialites. There are simply too many of them on the road to offer much… Continue

Satisfying liberty

"How do you like it" comes some voice seemingly out of no where. I turn around and find the owner of the voice and answer somewhat uncertainly "it is a lot of fun". I wish I had a better answer. There is truth in the answer -- the car is fun. But the answer does not really sum up "how I like it".

I am sold on its craftiness of being a perfect fit for what I need in transportation. The size, the feel, the drive,... it is all just right just as it is: a work of art.

I like the way it says it is my choice in transporation, capturing my independence, and liberty from the obligations that come from all of the other cars to be… Continue
