by Max Jakob Lusensky, Brandpsycho Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Brandpsycho books, Is contemporary consumer society fostering a 'branded' culture at risk of psychosis? Is our imagination being slowly colonized by the plethora of off-the-shelf fantasies promoted by mass and social media? How can we build resilience in the face of this seduction and avoid turning into personal brands ourselves? These are some of the questions author, psychoanalyst-in-training, and former brand director Max Jakob Lusensky explores in this collection of essays. Lusensky playfully de: brands consumer icons Apple and Starbucks while advocating for the withdrawal of psychic projections from brands' shiny surfaces. "Lusensky's work updates and extends Jung's basic insight that many things in contemporary life of which we might be ambivalent draw on the deepest and most authentic collective psychological dynamics. What Jung did when he understood the spiritual and soulful aspects of being involved with alcohol, Lusensky does in connection with our involvement with the big brand names and products of our time. Crucially, he writes from inside the problematic, as a former creator and user of these God-given modern phenomena. He is not disengaged or supercilious and this gives a personal embodiment to the ingenious argument of what is a very unusual - in the best sense - piece of work."

by Michel Wedel, Market Segmentation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Market Segmentation books, Modern marketing techniques in industrialized countries cannot be implemented without segmentation of the potential market. Goods are no longer produced and sold without a significant consideration of customer needs combined with a recognition that these needs are heterogeneous. Since first emerging in the late 1950s, the concept of segmentation has been one of the most researched topics in the marketing literature. Segmentation has become a central topic to both the theory and practice of marketing, particularly in the recent development of finite mixture models to better identify market segments. This second edition of Market Segmentation updates and extends the integrated examination of segmentation theory and methodology begun in the first edition. A chapter on mixture model analysis of paired comparison data has been added, together with a new chapter on the pros and cons of the mixture model. The book starts with a framework for considering the various bases and methods available for conducting segmentation studies. The second section contains a more detailed discussion of the methodology for market segmentation, from traditional clustering algorithms to more recent developments in finite mixtures and latent class models. Three types of finite mixture models are discussed in this second section: simple mixtures, mixtures of regressions and mixtures of unfolding models. The third main section is devoted to special topics in market segmentation such as joint segmentation, segmentation using tailored interviewing and segmentation with structural equation models. The fourth part covers four major approaches to applied market segmentation: geo-demographic, lifestyle, response-based, and conjoint analysis. The final concluding section discusses directions for further research.
