The E-motional Economy

Consumers are becoming obsessed with how everything makes them feel.

A new wave of sophisticated emodiversity is ushering in an era in which people are obsessed with how everything makes them feel.

From tracking their steps to monitoring their mindfulness, people have raised their personal awareness across all areas of their lives. In the new era of emodiversity, brands that design memorable, poignant and surprising experiences will win out by increasing a sense of deep audience connection.

In this presentation we examine:

: Drivers

A new reactionary mood means people now want to experience a more nuanced spectrum of emotions, plus we show how The Optimised Self, Humanised Tech and New Compound Emotions are driving change.

: Impacts

We probe the renewed cultural focus on communicating with emotion, and show how brands are building empathetic experiences, and capturing emotional data to make personal recommendations.

: Futures

Apps that help people cope with their emotions are on the rise, and consumers will be able to tailor their emotions at will through the meeting of technology and pharmacology.

: Toolkit

We offer an initial checklist of the building blocks you need in order to master the new language of emotionally vibrant consumer communications.
