Product Description

Consumer Behaviour 5e focuses on consumer needs, buying behaviour, and the art of customer satisfaction. It provides invaluable insight into the psychology behind consumer thinking, emotions, experiences and reasoning, as well as how choices between products/services, suppliers and product brands are made. A unique South perspective on consumer information-processing, decision-making and buying patterns is emphasised through the lens of culture, family, media and values. This perspective will inform academics in the marketing field as well as industry practitioners on how customised marketing strategies can be developed to effectively reach each consumer. The significant impact of the growth of the millennial market segment, the use of digital technology, and access to shared experiences through social media and other online channels, is also explored.

This fourth edition of Consumer Behaviour covers traditional and contemporary issues such as:

  • Consumer decision-making and influencing factors

  • Market segmentation and how to target a specific market
  • Consumer information-processing
  • Brand loyalty and how to retain customers
  • Customer relationship marketing
  • Cross-cultural influences on consumer behaviour
  • E-commerce and its effect on consumer behaviour.
