“Almost everyone has a desire to look attractive and modern, use high quality personal care products and eat foods made with the best ingredients and in the best conditions. However, in the current economic conditions, many simply cannot afford to purchase such goods or purchase them extremely rarely, episodically. In this regard, according to the retail audit: we see that the premium segment is sagging in most categories, - comments Marina Erskova, Head of Sales Evaluation and Marketing Communications, Nielsen Russia. - The manufacturer of a premium brand losing in sales needs to give the consumer a special reason that will explain the high price of the product. First of all, it should provide a unique experience and exclusive benefits. Finding the moments that correlate with the internal desires of buyers or with their needs, which the market cannot currently satisfy, will open up new opportunities for the brand.
