Synopsis:
Traditional approaches to marketing are out of touch with today's fast-paced multimedia environment. No longer is it enough to pitch the features and benefits of a product. Consumers now take functional quality and a positive brand image as a given, says Bernd Schmitt. What they want are products, communications, and marketing campaigns that arouse the senses, touch their hearts, and stimulate their minds. Responding to the public's desires, experiential marketers do not sell mere products. Instead, they seek, through packaging and advertising, to create a holistic experience to which customers can relate. In this way, Schmitt explains, marketers can transform a product or service from a one-time purchase to a daily part of the consumer's life. Incorporating the latest findings from psychology, cognitive science, sociology, and evolutionary biology, EXPERIENTIAL MARKETING is essential reading for managers at every level who want to create, build or revitalise a brand or company.

Review:
Experiential marketing, a decidedly turn-of-the-millennium form of corporate persuasion that strives to elicit a powerful sensory or cognitive consumer response, is rapidly superseding the stodgy features-and-benefits approach generally in vogue since the gray-flannel '50s. In fact, says Bernd H. Schmitt, a professor of marketing and director of the Center on Global Brand Management at Columbia Business School, leading enterprises ranging from Gillette and Martha Stewart to Amtrak and Oprah Winfrey are already using such emotionally loaded techniques successfully to develop new products, communicate with customers, create business partnerships, build innovative cyberspace and brick-and-mortar sales outlets, and boost profits. Experiential Marketing presents Schmitt's insightful and thought-provoking examination of this growing trend, along with a series of suggestions (for example, how to create an "us vs. them" atmosphere) for implementing similar efforts. By dissecting a series of relevant campaigns undertaken at the leading-edge firms mentioned above, along with those at other major players such as Harley-Davidson, Volkswagen, Celestial Seasonings, and Taster's Choice, Schmitt demonstrates its effectiveness while deftly pointing out salient techniques that readers might adopt. --Howard Rothman
