Discovering and Testing the Key Consumer Insight

Nowadays, marketers have a lot of data, information, findings, and observations about their customers and target audience.  Synthesizing all that information into insights, and then deciding on the most powerful and motivating insight is critical to marketing success.  This course will cover the process and tools used to determine deep consumer insights and how marketers decide on the most appropriate insights for a marketing campaign. Students will examine case studies of how consumer insight is leveraged in organizations for strategic decision-making for ad campaigns. They will determine the target audience for brand and portfolio positioning, segmentation, and business strategy for competitive context.  This course will examine ways to approach research to generate the foundational insight about the target consumer, the psychological/motivational construct that will be the foundation of a campaign, and how it will connect with consumer desires/needs and feelings.
There are 7 live remote 60-minute sessions.  Students must attend 4 of the 7 sessions. In the Summer 2024 academic semester, this course's live sessions will be held on Wednesdays from 6 - 7 PM.
