Consumer perception - Dip clothing
The overall consumer perceptions about Dip clothing is highly neutral at 70% with only 30% of the surveyed individual feeling positive about it. Unfortunately, we could not uncover details regarding consumers’ awareness about the existence of this clothing line. Read on for a detailed methodology leading to the uncovering of the partial findings presented.
We began by looking for information on review and rating sites such as Consumer Affairs, which facilitates consumer opinions and reviews on various products both positive and negative, but found no mentions about Kroger Dip clothing line. The prevalent information was on deals, discounts, and convenience, etc. Next, we searched for fashion expert opinions about the Kroger Dip brand by examining sites such as Kroger, Slashed Beauty, and Busy Being Shasha. These sources provided a few opinions and views of these experts regarding the Kroger Dip brand. We found positive reviews on Slashed Beauty, a blog written and run by Miranda, beauty awards judge of Glamour Magazine; however, they were sponsored by Kroger, which could have undermined the credibility and integrity of the reviews and opinions.
Third, we used social media analytical tools like Social Searcher and App.Neilpatel, which featured some sentiments regarding the brand; however, they lacked in-depth information on the overall consumer perceptions about Dip clothing, and how aware are consumers that this clothing line exists. We hoped that this approach could yield positive results since these vendors offer tools that monitor all public social mentions in social networks and the web, which can be used to measure and track what people say about a particular company, brand, product, or service.
Fourth, we searched for the information on business articles and reports published by sites such as Progressive Grocer, Business Insider, and Forbes, etc. Equally, we retrieved little information, which did not directly address the search requirements since the report by Forbes only featured information about the launch and branding of the Kroger Dip clothing line. On that note, we could only retrieve fewer details on the overall consumer perceptions about Dip clothing and their awareness regarding the existence of this clothing line.
