What is your research on beauty focused on?

With the development of digital communication technology, several companies and brands around the world have implemented online marketing through mobile internet. The use of smartphones has increased significantly, and beauty companies in South Korea and beyond are adopting mobile applications as a tool to provide not only information about their products, but also enhance customer experience with news articles or product tutorials.

Focusing on this beauty mobile application (app) context, we first classified the reviews provided by online shoppers in different categories. We then studied how consumers perceive these products according to their differing classifications, and how product reviews written by other customers are an essential tool in the purchase decision-making process, influencing the intention to buy.

What's your research on beauty about?

This research in collaboration with Associate Professor Susan Ainsworth from the University of Melbourne, aims to understand how beauty is constructed and marketed in a developing country, Indonesia.  An understudied context, Indonesia is an industrialising and increasingly global country with a sizable emerging middle class that is the largest in Southeast Asia. We explore how advertisements illustrate the complexity of cultural ideals of beauty in this setting.

Dr Ben Voyer, consumer psychologist and marketing professor at ESCP Europe Business School, says Burberry needs to reinvent itself again to appeal to the new Chinese consumer.
Dr Ben Voyer discussed a report by Which? showing how manufacturers are 'shrinking' products, instead of increasing their prices. Dr Voyer explained the psychological mechanisms which make consumers less susceptible to notice the implicit price increase. He highlighted the importance of consumer education to help consumers resist being manipulated.
