Selling Dreams: How to Make Any Product Irresistible

Front Cover
As long as men and women dream, the luxury market will flourish, says North American Ferrari's Gian Luigi Longinotti-Buitoni. Today, when more people than ever have the opportunity to become wealthy, and when technological advances help reduce the cost of 'physical maintenance', freeing consumers to spend proportionately less money on satisfying basic needs and more on fulfilling their dreams, the luxury market is no longer marginal. Buitoni, a man who speaks with great authority about the business of selling dreams, demonstrates how entrepeneurs and managers from all fields of business can learn a great deal from those who market products and services that ardently appeal to a customer's imagination and desires.
In SELLING DREAMS, Buitoni explains his concept of 'dreamketing', where brand management is elevated to an art form, requiring artists, market sociologists, and executives to conjure up images that take hold in the consumer's collective consciousness and to attract interest in products and services that will set tomorrow's trends. His practical, step-by-step marketing plans are easily adaptable, and they will appeal to anyone who wants to stay ahead of the competition.
