Marketing To The Affluent

Filed Under Client Acquisition 

Today I received Direct magazine for August. The cover article is titled “Mad Money… The wealthy are still spending on luxury goods and services”. Does Dan Kennedy have his finger on the pulse of the economy, or what? (see yesterday’s post for more info on Dan’s take).

Click on the link to Direct magazine, then click on the August issue cover and you’ll be taken straight to the article. In the online issue there’s even a link in a sidebar to a related article: “Luxury Lists, How to Find High-End Buyers.”

According to Dan, the affluent class is expanding rapidly. He predicts that soon we’ll see demographics of the wealthy making up 1/3 of the population. The middle class will start to shift into the two categories. It doesn’t end there. Ultimately, 2/3 of the population will be affluent, there will be no middle class, 1/3 of the population will be poor.

I’m not an economist. Dan’s not an economist either. But, he’s a helluva marketer and when it comes to buying trends I’d put my money on a seasoned marketer any day of the week.
