FEBRUARY 20, 2019

Strategic, upstream marketing that is incorporated into the innovation development process can clearly define who to sell the new offering to and how to sell it.
Decide 4Ps of marketing using marketing expertise.

 Innovation alone may be enough to initiate the adoption life cycle, but marketing remains the bridge necessary to cross the chasm between early adopters to the wider group of people who will form a viable, valuable customer base.

Communication theory tells us that the transmitter and receiver of information must share a common domain of knowledge for information to be transmitted. This means analysts need to understand what the firm’s managers can understand.

Why Your Customers’ Social Identities Matter.

By: Champniss, Guy; Wilson, Hugh N.; Macdonald, Emma K. Harvard Business Review. Jan/Feb2015, Vol. 93 Issue 1/2, p88-96.

People are highly social animals. Most of us belong to many social groups, each with its own identity.

For five years the authors have been studying how social identity affects customer behavior in a wide range of industries. They have seen that companies can trigger more-favorable reactions in customers by subtly influencing which identities they tap into. This is something firms should take into account when doing market research or designing experiences.

The first step is to surface the range of  a customer's  possible identities. If a customer's identity encourages targeted behaviors, marketers can help reinforce it.  Marketers can also work to add a desired behavior to those that customers associate with an identity, prime different identities in customers, and even create new identities that deepen relationships with existing customers and attract new ones.
