Consumer Buying Preferences

...Easier because they can get information from all the types of advertisements they see and hear everyday – print, billboards, online, television, radio, etc. Advertising can be perceived as an answer to one’s needs (basic and daily necessities) and wants (what they buy, but they do not need). Each of us is different, so we all have our perceptions toward a brand/product or other advertisements we see or hear. However, companies still look for the real reason why consumers buy, what they buy, and when they buy. This is because it will help them know what brand/product or service to offer in order to satisfy them, and possibly maybe, let them become loyal buyers/users. Consumers buy as they aim to satisfy their needs and wants. Consumer needs are their basic and daily necessities, while wants are the things they buy, but they do not really need, those which will improve/enhance their self-image. Today, we can see that advertising has started to bloom, so a lot of companies are doing the best they can do, not only to make people aware of their specialty brands/products, but also to make them buy and become loyal consumers. In order to achieve that major goal, companies began using a kind of advertising that can help them increase sales through people who can truly attract majority of the mass. This is what they call and we know as celebrity endorsement. Celebrity endorsement started in 1893 when well-known actress from Britain, Lillie Langtry appeared in an......

Private labels or store brands are generally brands owned, controlled, and sold exclusively by retailers (Sethuraman and Cole, 1999). Store brand grocery items are products owned and branded by organizations, whose primary economic commitment is distribution rather than production (Schutte, 1969).

Premium private labels are those Private Labels which are priced higher than the National Brands like Te'scoFinest Brand (which competes against P&G and Coca-cola in U.K.). Value innovative Private Labels are those Private Labels which compete with the functional quality of National brands and are available at economical prices. The history of private labels dates back to 1869 with 'Sainsbury' (the father of modem supermarkets), which was established in Victorian England, followed by Marks and Spencerin 1884.

Consumer Attitude Towards Brand Extensions

...Consumer Attitude Towards Brand Extensions: An Integrative Model and Research Propositions Sandor Czellar1 University of Geneva 1 University of Geneva, Section HEC, 40, boulevard du Pont-d’Arve, 1211 Geneva 4, Switzerland. 00 41 22 705 8114 (tel), 00 41 22 705 8104 (fax), (email). 1 Consumer Attitude Towards Brand Extensions: An Integrative Model and Research Propositions The paper proposes an integrative model of the antecedents and consequences of brand extension attitude based on the dominant cognitive paradigm. The four key processes of the model are: (1) the perception of fit, (2) the formation of primary attitudes towards the extension, (3) the link between extension attitude and marketplace behaviour and (4) the reciprocal effect of brand extension attitude on parent brand/extension category attitude. Moderator and control variables of these processes are identified and classified into three groups: (1) consumer characteristics, (2) marketer-controlled factors and (3) external factors. This integrative model leads to the identification of missing links and variables in past research, resulting in a propositional inventory for future studies. The paper ends with a reflection on the long-term perspectives of scientific inquiry on brand extensions. Keywords: Brand extensions, Consumer Attitudes, Brand Associations, Brand Affect, Cognitive Psychology 2 Introduction Brand extension is the "use of established brand names to......

Consumer Preference

...For any business activity consumer is the most important factor and its importance gets manifested when the business includes service activity. In this competitive business environment where the competitive difference in services and products are essentially narrowing down, shopping experience has become the differentiating factor for most. Besides, the growth of e commerce has forced the traditional brick and mortar retailers to respond with this differentiation. When it comes to services, the service provider’s task becomes to manage the evidence which is essentially to tangibilize the intangible. Service firms try to demonstrate their service quality through physical evidence and presentation. Kotler (1973) claims that atmospheric aspect of the store has often been given less importance because managers usually tend to focus more on practical and operational aspects. He also maintained that designing the store area to induce desired cognitive and emotional feelings in the customer is not an easy job. A number of researches have proposed a dependency of satisfaction level and purchase behaviour of the customers on the environment of the store (Donovan et al., 1994). However, the existing literature regarding influence of the entire setting of the store/outlet on the emotional reaction of the customers and their approach to purchase and loyalty, when all components of the store environment traditionally identified by music, lighting, colour, smell, temperature, decorative,...

Consumer Preference Towards Led

...CONSUMER BEHAVIOR TOWARDS PHILIPS LED By Sai Puja S 1502008 Naresh Bitla 1502009 CHAPTER-1 INTRODUCTION TO THE INDUSTRY LIGHT EMITTING DIODE The electricity used over the lifetime of a single Incandescent bulb costs 5 to 10 times the original Purchase price of the bulb itself. Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Compact Fluorescent Lights (LED) bulbs have revolutionized energy-efficient lighting. 1.1. HISTORY OF LED: In 1907, British scientist Henry J. Round discovered the physical effect of electroluminescence, an optical and electrical phenomenon in which a material emits light in response to an electric current passed through it or to a strong electric field. The light produced was very dim and not bright enough to stimulate further research. In the early 1960s, groups at RCA, IBM, GE and MIT were working actively on LEDs. Among the first commercially available LEDs was an 870 nm IR device sold by Texas Instruments for $130 US. Around the same time, GE distributed red LEDs through the Allied radio catalog for $260 US. Obviously, LEDs were quite expensive and sold only in low volumes. In 1964, IBM used GaAsP LEDs on circuit boards in an early mainframe computer. This is significant for the first time LEDs provided a compelling value proposition to both manufacturer and end-user over conventional lighting technology. As an on-off indicator light, the LED could be mounted directly onto the circuit board, used less power, and had a seemingly......
