About Pam Danziger and Unity Marketing
Pamela N. Danziger is an internationally recognized expert specializing in consumer insights for marketers targeting the affluent consumer segment. She is president of Unity Marketing, a boutique marketing consulting firm she founded in 1992.
Pam received the Global Luxury Award for top luxury industry achievers presented at the Global Luxury Forum in 2007 by Harper's Bazaar. She was named to Luxury Daily's Luxury Women to Watch in 2013.

Unity Marketing specializes in providing business insights into the mind of the affluent consumer. Rather than focus on an industry or product sector, we look to provide marketers insights into their more affluent customers who have more specialized needs, desires and aspirations for goods and services. 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.'
Unity Marketing is in a constant pursuit of new insights and understandings of these high potential customers for its clients. Toward that end every three months Unity Marketing conducts an in depth attitude and purchase tracking study among ~1,200+ high-end affluent consumers. Unity Marketing's Affluent Consumer Tracking Study (ACTS) is the only longitudinal survey of its kind which provides not just a historic but forward-looking, predictive view of the affluent consumers and their attitudes toward spending and wealth in its exclusive LCI (Luxury Consumption Index).
Pam brings a passion for data coupled with a need to understand what drives and motivates consumers to Unity Marketing's syndicated and custom research studies. She uses qualitative and quantitative market research to learn about their brand preferences, shopping habits, and attitudes about their luxury lifestyles, then turns these insights into actionable strategies for marketers to use to reach these high spending consumers.
