|Abstract: ||How do consumers manage their everyday self-presentation to attain a sense of wellbeing?
Through the lens of consumption, this study contributes to understanding the link between self
and everyday interactions by identifying and developing a typology of wellbeing challenges and
how these are managed in a variety of social contexts. Fifteen phenomenological interviews
revealed a series of strategy narratives through which individuals pursue wellbeing within their
web of social encounters. These strategy narratives combine in a series of pathways that range
from harmonious (e.g., enhancement) to incongruous (e.g., concealment) in individuals’ efforts to
manage challenges to personal wellbeing. Constructing a typology from these pathways, the
research findings pose both opportunities and challenges for social marketers to promote
consumers’ positive experiences in the marketplace.|
