Pam Danziger Pamela N. Danziger is an internationally recognized expert in understanding the mind of the consumer. She founded Unity Marketing in 1992 as a boutique market research firm specializing in consumer insights for marketers and retailers that sell luxury goods and experiences to the ‘masses as well as the classes.’ Unity doesn’t just field market research studies; rather we delve into the psychology that motivates and empowers luxury consumers in the marketplace. What sets us apart from the rest is our focus on consumer psychology in other words, ‘why people buy.’

Her trademark ‘why people buy’ approach is founded on a passion for data coupled with a need to understand what drives and motivates consumers as they shop. Thus her work includes both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies.

In recognition of her ground-breaking work in the luxury consumer market, Pam received the Global Luxury Award presented by Harper’s Bazaar for top luxury industry achievers in 2007. Click this link for a selective list of Unity Marketing’s recent clients.

In addition, she wrote Let Them Eat Cake: Marketing Luxury to the Masses as well as the Classes (Chicago: Dearborn Trade Publishing, 2005) and Why People Buy Things They Don’t Need (Chicago: Dearborn Trade Publishing, 2004).
