This brand new Packaged Facts report provides the pet marketer with a bevy of best practices for marketing to the pet parent. The report also contains analysis of consumer technology usage trends and motivations, drawing primarily on two data sources. The first is national consumer survey data from Simmons. Through an ongoing program of telephone and booklet questionnaire surveys of a large probability sample of consumers who represent a statistically accurate cross-section of the U.S. adult population, Simmons is able construct detailed demographic profiles across various consumer product and service markets, including the chocolate market. The discussion of consumer patterns also draws on the Packaged Facts Pet Owner Survey, an exclusive look at pet owners across the country.
