Studia Ekonomiczne, the journal of the Institute of Economics of the Polish Academy of Science, has published in this latest issue, a peer-reviewed article by Filiberto Amati and Francisco Pestana: “Consumption Rituals: a strategic marketing framework”.
The objective of this paper is to provide a solid framework to analyze consumption rituals, in order to develop activation ideas for new and existing brands, as well as fuel innovation concepts – both at product and experience level – in a more consumer centric approach.
“Rituals are powerful, because they are based on repetitive – and therefore predictable – behavior, with a strong link to our emotions, which makes them a fertile territory for relevant brand building and consumer centric innovation” - explains Filiberto Amati – “This is critical in a global context where brands struggle to find a purposeful and relevant connection with consumers, and product lifecycles are getting shorter and shorter. Even more in context in which consumers’ education is sprained by hyper-turbulent market places, ritualized consumption can assist in filling that gap”
