    • Chapter Questions • How do consumer characteristics influence buying behavior? • What major psychological processes influence consumer responses to marketing? • How do marketers analyze consumer decision making? 3
    • What Influences Consumer Behavior? • Consumer behavior—the study of how individuals, groups, and organizations select, buy, and dispose of goods, services, ideas, or experiences to satisfy their needs and desires. • Influences: • Cultural factors • Social factors • Personal factors 4
    • Cultural Factors • Culture is the most fundamental determinant of a person’s wants and behavior. • Consists of subcultures that provide more specific identification and socialization for their members. • Social class—relatively homogeneous and enduring divisions in a society. 5
    • Social Classes • Upper uppers • Lower uppers • Upper middles • Middle class • Working class • Upper lowers • Lower lowers 6
    • Income Gap in the US 7
    • Citi Hourglass Theory 8
    • P&G High/Low 9
    • Social Factors • Reference groups—consist of all of the groups that have a direct or indirect influence on a person’s attitudes or behavior. • Membership groups (primary and secondary)—groups having direct influence: family, friends, co-workers, neighbors • Aspirational groups—those a person hopes to join • Dissociative groups—those whose values or behavior an individual rejects • Opinion leader—the person who offers informal advice or information about a specific product or product category. 10
    • Social Media Opinion Leaders 11
    • Personal Factors • Age • Life cycle stage • Occupation • Economic circumstances • Personality • Self-concept • Lifestyles • Values 12
    • Key Psychological Processes • Motivation • Perception • Learning • Memory 13
    • Key Psychological Processes • Freud’s Theory • Behavior is guided by subconscious motivations. • Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Theory • Human needs are arranged in a hierarchy from most to least pressing— physiological, safety, social, esteem, and self-actualization. • Behavior is driven by lowest unmet need. • Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory • The absence of dis-satisfiers is not enough to motivate a purchase;satisfiers must be present. 14
    • Figure 5.1 Model of Consumer Behavior 15
    • Perception •Perception—the process by which we select, organize, and interpret information inputs to create a meaningful picture of the world. •Selective attention: Consumers can only absorb so much information, that is why targeted marketing is so key for ROI •Selective distortion: Customers may interpret information that fits preconceptions 16
    • Learning • Learning induces changes in our behavior arising from experience • A first positive experience with a brand is key to companies • Drive—a strong internal stimulus that impels action. • Cues—minor stimuli that determine when, where, and how a person responds. 17
    • Five Stage Model of Consumer Buying 18
    • • Use the above matrix to make a buying decision for the following items: • Gas • A new PC • Graduate School • A New Car 19
    • Basic Concepts Underlying the Consumer Evaluation Process • Consumer is trying to satisfy a need. • Consumer is looking for certain benefits. • Consumer sees each product as a bundle of attributes with varying abilities for delivering the benefits to satisfy this need. • Belief—a descriptive thought a person holds about something. • Attitude—enduring favorable or unfavorable evaluations, feelings, and action tendencies toward some object or idea. • Expectancy-value model—consumers evaluate products and services by combining their brand beliefs according to importance. 20

    • Chapter Questions • How do business buyers make their decisions? • How can companies build strong relationships with business customers? • How do institutional buyers and government agencies do their buying? 24
    • Local Examples • While these businesses all operate in the B2C Space, many B2B suppliers call on these businesses and need to market to them as well • Can you think of any examples of vendors that would market to these companies? 25
    • Local Examples • IT Solutions • Supplies • Product • Text Books 26
    • What is Organizational Buying? • Organizational buying refers to the decision-making process by which formal organizations establish the need for purchased products and services, and identify, evaluate, and choose among alternative brands and suppliers. 27
    • Characteristics of Business Markets (Page 86) • Fewer, larger buyers • Close supplier-customer relationships • Professional purchasing • Many buying influences • Multiple sales calls • Derived demand • Inelastic demand • Fluctuating demand • Geographically concentrated buyers • Direct purchasing 28
    • Buying Situation • Straight rebuy • Reordering of supplies on a routine basis, usually with current suppliers and automatic reorders • Modified rebuy • The buyer wants to change the product specs, prices, delivery, etc. This usually opens the door to out suppliers • New task • Buys a new product or service for the first time 29
    • Buygrid Framework 30
    • The Buying Center • Initiators: Those who request that something be purchased. • Users: Those who will use the product or service. In many cases, the users initiate the buying proposal. • Influences: People who influence the buying decision by defining specifications and providing information for evaluating alternatives. Technical personnel are particularly important influences. • Decider: People who decide on product requirements and or on suppliers. • Approvers: People who authorize the proposed actions of deciders or buyers. • Buyers: People who have formal authority to select the supplier and arrange the purchase terms. • Gatekeepers: People who have the power to prevent sellers or information from reaching to members of the buying center. e.g. purchasing agents, receptionists, and telephone operators may prevent sales 31
    • Concerns to Business Marketers • Who are the major decision participants? • What decisions do they influence? • What is their level of influence? • What evaluation criteria do they use? 32
    • Stages in the Buying Process: Buy phases 1.Problem recognition: Someone identifies that a problem can be solved by purchasing a new good or service 2.General need description: Buyer determines the items characteristics and quantities needed 3.Product specification: (PVA) Product Value Analysis, reducing the cost to make a product 4.Supplier search: The buyer reaches out to suppliers or auction sites 33
