Conceptual Segmentation

About the Conceptual Short-Term Memory (CSTM)

It has to be considered that any value proposition made to a person is recognized by the Conceptual Short-Term Memory (CSTM) that uses the concepts stored in the Long-Term Memory (LTM). Therefore, the marketing actions that are based on conceptual segmentation increase notoriously their effectiveness.

Unicist Conceptual Marketing

The unicist marketing technologies have been developed at The Unicist Research Institute to manage the root causes of buying processes.

Unicist Conceptual Marketing is an approach based on the use of business objects and the unicist segmentation.

Buying decisions are driven by the concepts individuals have. That is why buying decision are driven by the instantaneous actions of the Conceptual Short-Term Memory that use the information stored as a concept in the long-term memory.

The unicist root cause marketing includes:

Unicist Marketing Strategy: to define the short-term and long-term segmented strategies, including both maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to sustain the customer base.

Unicist Root Causes of Buying Processes: to define the root drivers of buying processes, including the conceptual and the functional and psychological drivers.

Maximal & Minimum Marketing Actions: to define the actions and their synchronicity that need to be developed in order to have a critical mass in buying decisions.

Unicist Conceptual Design Groups: to define the concepts that drive the actions of the different segments of the market and define the segmented proposals and actions to be developed.

Benefits of the Unicist Conceptual Marketing:
• Increase of marketing effectiveness

Segmentation is the core of successful marketing actions

Unicist Object Driven Marketing is based on a segmentation that allows, on the one hand, an accurate definition of the “what”, “what for”, “why” and “how” a segment buys, and on the other hand, the transformation of this abstract knowledge into objects to influence the clients and expand the markets.

Unicist Market SegmentationSegments necessarily preexist to segmentation. They cannot be invented, they have to be discovered. The unicist approach to segmentation includes all the levels of processes that happen in the consumer’s mind when making a purchasing decision.

Unicist Object Driven Marketing is the most effective way for marketing because it follows the nature of the consumer’s mind and uses the most powerful technological tools to communicate.

When dealing with human behavior, fundamentals lay the grounding of human attitudes but the environmental and materialistic needs define the drivers of what people desire, want, need and buy.

Unicist ontology considers that the ontology of a functional reality is unique and cross-cultural but its operation varies according to the culture.

That is the reason why “Design globally, operate locally” gains a strong meaning. In this sense, the cross-cultural concepts are called invariables, while the operational shape such invariables take, varies from culture to culture.

Unicist Market Mix is an approach to influence the markets, its segments and individuals in the most profitable way: approaching their nature.

Understanding cultures, segments and products makes the unicist marketing mix approach possible. The unicist marketing mix establishes the successive and simultaneous actions to influence the consumer’s or user’s purchasing decision.
