Who Responds Best to Product Placement?

New Study From Experian Simmons

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 15, 2008) - Since the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will be introducing new product placement guidelines in January 2009, Experian® Simmons(SM) reviewed data from the Simmons National Consumer Study/Simmons National Hispanic Consumer Study to look at how consumers feel about product placement.

Consumers differ in the way they view product placement and whether or not they respond to it. Experian Simmons found several distinctive characteristics of those who are more likely to respond to product placement. These are helpful and will become more important after the new FTC guidelines are put into effect. Recognizing that some consumers respond more positively than others to product placement can help any company determine the most effective way to market products to specific consumers.
