Mind over Marketing 2018: Buy now or Cry later!

Buy now or cry later! Often when you are shopping online, you see this slogan passing by, resulting in a temptation to buy which many cannot resist. But to what extent and why can you influence people with a slogan like this? In other words, since there are thousands of alternatives: Why do we buy the things we buy? The speakers will talk about subthemes like social selling, personalized shopping and consumer centricity to answer this question. Social selling means the process of developing relationships as part of the sales process. To achieve this important relationship between brand and customer, brands are personalizing the messages they send to their customers. So, brands are more and more centralizing the customer instead of centralizing the product they sell.

The event will take place on Tuesday the 13th of February at Bax Bier. This is an informal location where we will listen to the speakers whilst enjoying some beers.The event costs MARUG members 6 euros and non-members 8 euros. The price includes three drinks and a delightful dinner.

We are looking forward to the event and we are hoping to see you all on the 13th of February!
