As similar as they might be to the Belonging type, loyalty to one source isn’t as important to the Socializer. If they can develop friendships in several different stores then they will go to several different stores. Socializers love to receive and give compliments. However, they tend to be self-centered. They want to go to a store where they are made to feel important. This is the one group that retailers, owners, managers and salespeople relate to the most, because the majority of retailers will fit in this category!

How to Deal with the Socializer The most important thing to remember is that it’s not all about the merchandise; it is about the relationship. Always remember that the first thing you are selling is yourself . You can be giving merchandise away, but the Socializer won’t care if they don’t like you. Use compliments liberally. Do whatever you have to do to remember the names of these people. Don’t lose sight of the fact that although they look at the shopping experience as a fun, social event, your goal is still to sell them merchandise. Remember: Keep the Socializer focused, yet be light enough to make their shopping experience fun and entertaining. Contrast customer service activities among the four generational groups.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
