[Township Marketing]: Getting the township and people to talkArticle

As outlined in previous articles, we are all influenced by peer pressure. We take cues from people we respect as 'experts in any given field' - whether it's our mom for household goods, our uncle the mechanic regarding what car to buy or our best friend, the style diva on what clothes to wear. We also look to high-profile people - those who get a lot of attention who could be national celebrities or else just well-known individuals. We are constantly absorbing what others are doing.

[Township Marketing]: Township StatusArticle

Our purchase decisions are largely made by proxy - by our peers, rather than directly by ourselves. Peer pressure is a key component to why we buy whatever, irrespective of our age. We always try to make what we believe is the right decision in the eyes of others regarding the brands we use. (video)

How to stimulate brand recommendationsArticle

Research organisations are constantly updating figures tallying how many branded messages are being pushed at consumers. In South Africa, we are currently being bombarded with around 900 branded messages per week.
