2 being alive examples
2. Being Alive - Examples

  • The quickest illustration of this Trend is the incredible surge in organic products. Now organics are a $7.6 billion business, up 200% in the last 5 years.

  • Think about herbal additives: Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Kava. Herbal additives in food or in the form of capsules, tinctures, extracts or teas are now routinely used by one third of American adults.

  • GNC is opening more than a store a day; they do $4.2 billion in annual sales.

  • Fitness club membership is up 64% over the last 7 years for those aged 39-54.

  • And we’re trying to improve mental health at the same time. Witness the "sweat shop fitness & wellness facility" in Albany, NY, where clients get therapy while working out.

  • People are gobbling up green tea – even as ice cream.

  • Alternativity is a big part of this Trend. Think acupuncture, magnets, meditation.

  • We are even seeing the rise of alternative pet care: the Holistic Veterinary Association counts 700 member vets.

3 cashing out
3. Cashing Out

  • The desire for a simpler, less hectic lifestyle

  • Examples

    • Executives leave corporate American to run a bed-and-breakfast in Vermont or run small businesses from home

Leisure Time For The Briefcase Set

  • Prominent leaders are leaving to spend more time with their families:

  • Susan Molinari and Bill Paxon: both U.S. House Representatives resigned to devote time to family.

  • Patty Stonesifer: former head of Microsoft’s interactive division left that pressure-cooker job for a more temperate pace as president of the Gates Library Foundation

  • Sergio Zyman, marketing guru for Coke, left to spend more time hanging out at home.

    One way out is Entrepreneurship

  • Someone starts a home-based business every 11 seconds.

  • Oh, and those home-based businesses are raking in $401 billion in annual revenues!

4 clanning
4. Clanning

  • The growing need to join up with / belong to groups to confront a more chaotic world.

  • Examples

    • HOG - Harley Owner’s Group

    • Mega Churches

    • Self help support groups

  • Markets respond with products, services to help consumer feel part of something

4 clanning examples
4. Clanning - Examples

  • As joiners, we Americans want to share our opinions, beliefs, complaints – whatever it is we’re feeling.

  • The AIDS ribbon is a terrific example of Clanning at work in the social realm; there are actually more than 500,000 support groups for different health concerns.

  • "Superparents" may be the next Clan: with the booming market for fertility drugs, twin births are up 42% over the last 15 years, and for those really going for the gusto, births of triplets or more are up 272% during the same period.

  • The list is endless: teens are forming virgin clubs, tea-lovers are joining tea-clubs, women named Betty are bonding over their name, even Harley Davidson does a "ladies of Harley" group.

  • Small town solidarity is turning up in wallets: some municipalities are now issuing their own currencies to encourage local spending and rebuild communities without relying on going to Washington.

  • Andy Warhol once said, "I think it would be terrific if everybody was alike." Now THERE’s a Clan!

    The Armored Cocoon Is Changing Our Neighborhoods And Homes:

  • Gated communities house 4 million Americans.

  • Private security is now a $104 billion market.

  • And when we’re tucked safely indoors, we want to enjoy ourselves: movie theaters are now installed in some 16.6 million homes.

5 cocooning examples1
5. Cocooning - Examples

Not To Mention Working At Home:

  • New surveys show that only 17% of workers want that corner office; a clear majority would prefer to work in a home office.

  • The number of U.S. at-home workers is up 100% in the last 5 years, for a total of 10.1 million. In 20 yrs, 1 in 7 workers will be a full-time telecommuter.

  • Len Riggio, President of Barnes & Noble, understands stores are Cocoons: the pick-up place of the 90's is a retail space designed like a comfortable living room. Barnes & Noble has revenues upwards of $2.5 billion, opening 70 outlets a year.

  • An old prayer brings this Trend home: "Bless these walls so firm and stout, keeping want and trouble out."

  • "Star Wars" made millions the second time around with a grown-up fan base.

  • Think of all the primetime TV shows starring cartoon characters: "The Simpsons," "King of the Hill," "South Park," "Daria," "Dr. Katz," and newcomers "The PJ’s," "Futurama," and "The Family Guy."

  • S’mores and cotton candy are now a popular dessert in restaurants, and Manhattan even sports a downtown eatery called Peanut Butter & Co., serving sandwiches of nothing but.

  • The Down-Aging retail landscape is booming as well: Disney has 250 stores and Warner Brothers has 80 stores; 80% of their sales are to adults, for adults.

  • My favorite online auction, eBay, posts 1,941 hits for Pez dispensers.

  • The median age of a Harley customer has risen to 42; ten years ago it was 34.

  • Car makers are appealing to boomer tastes by bringing back old favorites like the Ford Thunderbird, Chevrolet’s Nomad station wagon from the ’50s, and of course the VW Bug.

7. Egonomics - Examples

  • I saw the critical importance of this Trend when a consumer said to me, "I used to be a name. Then I became a number. Now I’m a bar-code."

  • Customization will be an enormous part of the future marketplace. Even now, it has turned up in some crazy corners: a company called My Twin Doll will take a photograph of your child and produce a custom doll that looks just like her! (They’re starting young…)

  • The growing market in body piercing, tattoos & branding is about a lot of things, not least of all individuation.

  • Check out this company that bakes cookies with a "you are what you eat" attitude. The Clever Cookie Company has recently introduced a cutstomized cookie imprinted with a color photograph in edible ink.

7 egonomics examples1
7. Egonomics - Examples

Even The Dead Are Requiring Custom Treatment:

  • Ashes can be launched into space;

  • Sportsmen’s ashes can be turned into buckshot and…

  • Viewlogy (rhymes with eulogy) allows the story-teller in all of us to be posthumously indulged: a sealed video tombstone on which mourners can watch the life-story as told by the deceased and family.

    Fashion Has Been Among The First Industries To Make Egonomics Part Of Its Best Practices

  • The Custom Foot takes your particular measurements, allows you to preview styles, fabric and leather types, and sends the data to its factory in Tuscany, and back comes a pair of custom shoes.

  • Custom jeans can now be had from Levi’s, and a wealth of other custom-tailored clothes are now available on the Web; just send in 11 key measurements!

  • And it's not just for the high-end; "Mass-Class" has arrived.

  • Using herbs found in archaeological digs, one fragrance master has recreated Cleopatra’s perfume.

  • Of course, the Web is any Fantasy Adventurer’s dream: we can self-create as often as we like in cyberspace, adopting any gender, image, or name. Anonymity enables fantasy.

8 fantasy adventure examples1
8. Fantasy Adventure - Examples

  • Thornton Wilder summed this one up nicely: "when you’re safe at home, you wish you were having an adventure. When you’re having an adventure, you wish you were safe at home."

  • So how can we travel without traveling? For the first time, film merchandising has extended to selling pieces of the set (real or reproduced) from films like "Titanic" and "LA Confidential."

  • Speaking of which, the success of "Titanic" spurred 15% growth in the cruise industry (and as I recall, the boat SANK in that movie!).

  • Ever wonder what’s going on with Luxor, Las Vegas? Apparently of the 56% of us who gamble, 97% prefer to do so in over-the-top settings.

  • Theme parks are booming, with annual revenues of $6 billion.

  • Even when we do travel, we are thirsty for adventure in our hotel rooms: One Australian hotel offers upscale tree-houses for $900 a night (and you won’t be roughing it, with TV, AC, and minibar access assured).
