  • Study Says You Shop Differently When You Look Up At Product in Around the Net In Brand Marketing on 03/05/2015

    Should your product be on a higher shelf or a lower? A new study in the Journal of Consumer Research, by researchers at Ghent University in Belgium, finds that, well, it depends. But vertical positioning on a shelf does influence purchasing decisions: When we look down, we seek out more concrete information; when up, we take a more generalized look. Established brands, say the researchers, may benefit from shelf positions that require the consumer to look down a bit.

    The lack of diversity at tech companies, and the concomitant dearth of opportunities for many Americans to get digital skills that make them competitive is appalling.
