Women and men: when women are shopping for men

Men have a different view of the world. For example, the idea of a woman cooking Christmas dinner or decorating Christmas tree may be stressful for women. Because they imagine the effort they would have to make to create such idyll. Men may perceive it pleasant or neutral. But the idea of a family decorating Christmas tree together is positive for both, men as well as women. We should be aware that approximately 75 % of fast-moving-consumer-goods purchases in the Czech Republic are done by women. Thus the knowledge of their shopping behaviour is very helpful for producers and sellers. Let us insight into it briefly.

The fact that women generally behave more impulsively when shopping will probably not surprise you. It is quite probable that this relates to their higher emotional activity during the shopping process. Also they spend much more time in stores and normally walk through them more in detail compared to men. The situation is interesting when it comes to P.O.P. media – various displays and alike. Women notice them more but men shop more often from them. Men also often shop alone. But women more often shop with children. Men shop more quickly and their shopping carts are mostly filled a little less. We should ask if we are aware of these and other differences between men and women and reflect the knowledge about them when we create a shopping environment, communication activities and P.O.P. media. It might be useful to always ask whether the promotion mechanics, content and communication execution meaningfully interest also women even in the case of, for example, products intended for a male consumer as beer, shaving kit, etc.
