“Private Eye: How Digital Technologies are Influencing Product Purchase”

Sarah Jindal – Senior Global Innovation and Insights Analyst, Beauty and Personal Care – Mintel

Digital technology will follow consumers everywhere, influencing their product purchases and helping them to navigate the complexities of the beauty aisle.

Digital technology will make shopping more personal in 2018. Beauty brands will use consumers’ faces not only as canvases for their products, but also as a way to track their likes and dislikes, and guide them through the shopping experience. Apps will become digital personal assistants, while voice-based technology will evolve to curate products. Overlying all of these developments will be the ever pervasive social media, converting beauty tourists into beauty shoppers.This will come at a price for the beauty industry, however, as consumers recognize the value of their biometric data and demand either privacy or compensation.

Data security will become more important than ever. Across the globe, governments are recognizing the need for greater data protection and are taking steps to put legislation in place that compels all businesses to seek consumer consent, disclose tracking, and offer consumers the right to be forgotten.

Designing packaging to perform across all of today’s media and shopping channels is akin to preparing for a tri-athalon. Your packaging must be “fit” and noteworthy in a variety of key areas.

We will review environmental and media factors crucial to guarantee that your package is designed to perform across: retail, e-commerce, social media, public relations, and home shopping. It takes a blend of both visual and linguistic cues to ensure your brand story connects with your audience and stands apart from the competition.

When armed with the objective lenses outlined above, subjective decisions about packaging design can become much more objective.

Jennifer Walsh – CEO – Behind the Brand/The Healthy Entrepreneur

Jennifer Walsh is a true architect of the beauty landscape. Creating the very first omni-channel beauty brand in the United States in 1998, she changed the way people shopped for beauty. Beauty Bar was that vehicle that allowed its early shoppers to see and try out niche beauty products in her brick and mortar stores, on her website, and a weekly TV show called The Beauty Buzz.  These then “unheard of brands” included Bobbi Brown, Philosophy, Kiehl’s, Stila, Fresh, Mario Badescu, La Mer, to name a few.

Jennifer grew her business until she sold the company in 2010. Amazon now owns the Beauty Bar and BeautyBar.com. Since selling off her first business, Jennifer has created multiple brands and has worked with brands both overseas and within the states that are rolling out products, and stores that are trying to create a footprint in the US market.

Her latest venture, Walk with Walsh, is a platform that dives deeper into the connections of what it means to be a healthy leader. Her video series is filmed while walking / talking to founders, CEO’s, innovators, philanthropists, on what it means to create healthy teams and how that effects their bottom line and their communities at large. Jennifer interviews these people while walking in iconic Central Park to hit home the importance of getting outdoors and reconnecting with nature. Walking in nature is proven to not only beneficial to the body but is healing and elevating to the brain and Jennifer has spent the past 2 years studying these effects. Jennifer also is one of the first female founders to have an Alexa Skill called, The Walsh Wake Up. Every morning one can listen to Jennifer while she walks in nature and offers some healthy business tips of the day.
