Thus the consumer may purchase the product because of a recommendation obtained from some non-media source and then attempt to support the decision by developing a positive attitude toward the brand and perhaps even developing negative feelings toward the rejected alternative(s) (Belch & Belch, 2003; Ray, 1973). This, they explain, reduces any post purchase dissonance the consumer may experience resulting from doubt over the purchase. They further argue that dissonance reduction involves selective learning, in which the consumer seeks information that supports the choice made and avoids information that would raise doubts about the decision. Belch & Belch (2003) go on to state that according to this model, marketers need to recognize that in some situations, attitudes develop after purchase, as does learning from the mass media. In these situations, they point out, the main effect of the mass media is not the
In order to determine the appropriate size and presentation of a price reduction, it is important to gain insight into the consumers’ price perception processes (Teunter, 2002). She notes that three theories have particular relevance to sales promotion; that is threshold theory (Weber’s law), adaptation-level theory, and assimilation-contract theory. She states that threshold theory (Weber’s law) is concerned with the question of how much of a stimulus change is necessary for it to be noticed by a consumer. She cites studies which demonstrate that there is a region of price insensitivity around a brand’s expected price within which price changes do not significantly affect purchase probabilities. Price differences outside that region, in contrast,
Effect studies describe the media’s effect on its consumer’s behaviour in a logical way. Within his discussion about these effects, Fourie (2007: 276) differentiates between short-term and long-term effects. Short-term theories refer to the “almost general agreement” (Fourie, 2007: 232) that the media influences people’s behaviour in extreme cases, and the long-term theory believes that the media does not have an immediate effect on the consumer, but rather that this influence happens over a long period. The first includes the two-step-flow, the hypodermic needle and the gratification theory, whereas the latter refers to the diffusion of innovation, modelling, social expectation, stereotyping, meaning construction, accumulation, agenda setting,
Including a proxy for the return on human capital enhances the predictive ability of the model Jagannathan and Wang (1996) and allowing beta to vary over time reduces the explanatory power of size and book-to-market variables. Clare and Priestley (1998) find a positive and significant relationship between beta and average stock returns. A thesis by Gillette (2005), states that the presence of anomalies may point out to market inefficiency since it should not be possible to earn excessive returns based on observable firm characteristics such as size and book to market
Paradox Of Choice Above: Shall I go left or right? The paradox of choice theory suggests you should limit the range of choice provided to customers. Image by sacks08 In marketing, providing people with freedom of choice is often seen as positive because it offers customers full autonomy over their decisions. However, if you give customers too much freedom of choice it can have an adverse effect. Barry Schwarz’s paradox of choice suggests that providing consumers with a limited range of choices has psychological benefits because it reduces anxiety for shoppers.
The creators exhibit the financial advantages of expanding consumer loyalty utilizing both an experimental gauge and another systematic model. What's more, they examine why expanding piece of the overall industry really may prompt lower consumer loyalty and give preparatory exact backing to this theory. Claes Fornell, Michael D. Johnson, Eugene W. Anderson, Jaesung Cha and Barbara Everitt Bryant, The American Customer Satisfaction Index: Nature, Purpose, and Findings Journal of Marketing, Vol. 68 (January 2004),
In its current framework, the model suggests that different motivational levels lead to different routes in processing information. What it does not state is the objective cues behind consumers’ motivational states and how they affect consumers’ motivational states. What this means is that the model does not predict the motivational state for different objective cues on the same consumer. For example, a consumer without motivation to process brand information would undergo the peripheral route based on the ELM but this same consumer may be highly motivated to process aesthetic information of the same product. The ELM does not show how different objective cues would lead to different motivational states.
LITERATURE REVIEW In the 20th century Original Equipment manufacturers focused on similarities of consumers, and in 21st century it focuses on understanding differences among consumers. India's fast-paced economic growth has helped companies to find growth opportunities in this sector. PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) forecasts India market performance in last decade was underpinned by natural demand driven by the country’s economic performance, low levels of vehicle ownership and rising middle class. Low economic growth; along with rising petrol prices and elevated interest rates created strong changes in the Indian vehicle market, and instability in petrol and diesel prices added to uncertainty in the sector. Insightful understanding of the competitive environment is a critical ingredient of a successful strategy.
Introduction The use of advertising went through a major phase of change over the past 150 years, from classical to modern view (kumar, 2010). In the modern days, marketers are developing strategies using various appeals including sexual, emotional, humour etc. (Belch, 2001). The motive behind formulating such strategies is to gain high brand exposure, attention, interest, desire and action (Belch, 2001). As (McCraken, 1989) stated that celebrities tend to create greater effect on the consumers‘buying behaviour.
