My research work tells the story of the individual consumer.
Traditional marketing treats consumers as the outcome of structures, patterns and regularities. I would like to claim that this leads to marketing failure.
Instead, we need to focus on individual differences, learn how consumers move from one discourse to another and how they are negotiating their lives to suit their individual circumstances.
