Pride and Prejudice: Shifting Mindsets in an Age of Uncertainty

The new Prosumer Report is out. The survey is called Pride and Prejudice: Shifting Mindsets in an Age of Uncertainty.

In a world scarred by crisis and uncertainty, people are turning toward values and symbols of the past. Rather than focusing on globalism, accessibility, diversity, and other more modern ideals, many are turning inward and seeking the security of the familiar, including patriotism and its more fanatical sibling, nationalism.

Prosumer Report – Aging: Moving Beyond Youth Culture

Havas’s global study debunks widespread myths about aging
Over the last year, the world’s population has bounded past 7 billion. And it’s not just because more babies are being born; people are also sticking around longer. In fact, an estimated 6.9 percent of the world’s population is age 65 or older. This rapidly growing population of elders will have important implications for marketers in industries as diverse as finance, healthcare, food and beverage, automotive, and home furnishings.

Creative Business Idea

Creative Business Ideas®

Great ideas win. They sink their claws into slippery attention spans and don’t let go. They erupt and disrupt. They change how people think and influence what people do. Increased competition, saturated markets, and sliced-and-diced audiences demand that brands create constant engagement and build real lasting connections with consumers. The best way to build those connections is to bring to life an idea so powerful it is capable of persuading consumers to actively pursue a relationship with the brand, not vice versa. That is why we believe in and dedicate ourselves to Creative Business Ideas®. Three proprietary tools feed into this development: Prosumer analysis for consumer insight, Brand Momentum for brand insight and Decipher for category insight. These tools enable us to develop and implement ideas that meet our exacting criteria: to be transformational and drive profitable growth. To transcend media. And to be adaptable to both traditional and emerging formats. At their best, Creative Business Ideas® don’t only change how consumers view a company, but how a company views itself, removing burdensome constraints and offering the business new spaces to explore and grow.

Our health

‘My Body, Myself, Our Problem: Health and Wellness in Modern Times.’

Based on our global survey of 7,213 adults in 19 countries around the world, our study has uncovered a revolution in attitudes toward health, led by Prosumers, that holds important implications for brands and marketers.

Social Business Ideas™

Social Business Ideas™

The two biggest trends impacting business today are social responsibility and social media. They are often treated separately, but they are in fact inextricably linked. Even before the current economic turmoil, business was moving toward greater social responsibility. Then, as the global economic crisis worsened, social media helped the world see the true cost of the ruthless pursuit of profit and its impact on economies, people, and the planet. Now, people can find out anything about a company or brand and share it with one another, fast and far. Social media gives people the power to support companies that are socially responsible and to punish those that aren’t. That’s why it’s time to generate strategic ideas that put social responsibility at the heart of business strategy. We call these Social Business Ideas®, because they make a positive contribution to both society and to a company’s profitability. They are ideas that embrace a genuine, credible role for the company and tackle the social issues that consumers care about. A strong Social Business Idea® becomes a rallying cry for the entire company, embracing all stakeholders inside and outside the organization. The successful business of the future will do well by doing good.

Brand Momentum

Brand Momentum

Brand Momentum is a tool we developed from the political polling arena, because it often occurs that candidates who are perceived to be leading become the choice of undecided voters. And so it can go with brand consideration.

By tracking the changing momentum of clients and competitors’ brands, including measures of dynamism and trust, we are able to craft more effective strategic plans and anticipate challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Decipher

Decipher

Decipher is a methodology we refined from semiotics: the study of visual and verbal signs and cultural cues. We use it to decode past and present communications within targeted brand categories, in order to identify and act on emerging shifts. By using this proprietary methodology, we continually unearth fresh cues that allow us to think in new ways.

Prosumer Pulse

Prosumer Pulse

People talk about brands. At Havas Worldwide we identified a desirable group of consumers who talk about brands a lot and who wield influence over the brand choices of others. We call them Prosumers. Our research shows that what these men and women are thinking, feeling, saying, and buying today is a good indication of where mainstream consumers will be in 6 to 18 months. Prosumer Pulse allows us to continuously tap into a global qualitative study involving tens of thousands of consumers around the globe, enabling us to anticipate shifts in attitudes and behaviors before anyone else.
