ABSTRACT
Before the collapse of communism, promotion in the former Soviet Bloc functioned more as either propaganda or generic information rather than what marketers would call marketing. Today's "new consumer" in these transition economies, however, is being forced to integrate Western-style promotion with traditional suspicion of marketing, all in systems that have transitioned more in some countries of the region than others. What does this mean for the multinational marketer? What old and new characteristics of the consumers in that region will force marketers to adapt their approach to promotion? Through research propositions this conceptual paper explores major themes of consumer behavior specific to the transitioning economies of the area, proposing, rather than answering, the right questions marketers need to ask about new target markets. For managers, the article offers implications and recommendations derived from these questions.
