    • PHI Learning UNDERSTANDING CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 1
    • PHI Learning CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR Consumer  behaviour entails  the  totality  of  consumer’s  decision  involved in acquiring, consuming and  disposing  of  goods  and  services,  as  well  as  making  use  of  experiences  and ideas. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 2
    • PHI Learning Consumer Behaviour is a Complex Dynamic Process Consumer’s Perspective Marketer’s Perspective Pre‐purchase  issues Purchase  issues Post‐purchase  issues Each stage poses varied issues and offers subsequent challenges for the marketer. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 3
    • PHI Learning Pre‐purchase Challenges for the Marketer Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 4
    • PHI Learning How are consumers’ attitudes towards products formed and/or changed? Changing consumer  demographics Access to more  choice of brands/  products Consumer  behaviour Cultural influences  on consumer  behaviour The creation and  diffusion of  consumer culture Psychological Factors ‐ Consumer involvement ‐ Consumer motivation ‐ Consumer’s perception Personal Factors  ‐ Personality and lifestyle ‐ Family lifecycle Social Factors ‐ Reference groups ‐ Family Consumer age,  sex, social class Subcultures It is essential for the marketer to understand how each of these factors influences consumer’s buying decision.  He can then formulate strategies in line with customer needs and demands.

    • PHI Learning Consumer Motivation Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 17
    • PHI Learning What is Motivation? Motivation refers to an activated state of needs within a person that leads to goaldirected behaviour. Types of Needs Innate or learned Expressive (emotional) Utilitarian (practical and functional) Hedonistic Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 18
    • PHI Learning Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs  Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 19
    • PHI Learning Characteristics of Needs Needs: • Are dynamic. • Have hierarchy. • Can be internally and externally aroused. • Can conflict. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 20
    • PHI Learning Motivational Conflict and  Need Priorities Satisfying a particular need often comes at the expense of another need. These trade-offs cause motivational conflict. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 21
    • PHI Learning Types of Motivational Conflict Approach-approach: deciding between two desirable options Avoidance-avoidance: deciding between two undesirable options Approach-avoidance: behaviour has both positive and negative consequences. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 22
    • PHI Learning Consumer Motivation • Represents the drive to satisfy both physiological and psychological needs through product purchase and consumption. • It gives insights into why people buy certain products. Stems from consumer needs: industries have been built around basic human needs. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 23
    • PHI Learning Motivated Purchase… • Conspicuous consumption: Purchases motivated to some extent by the desire to show other people how successful they are. • Companies reinforce the consumer motivations notion that products enable users to communicate their social status. • In general, marketers try to create an image or personality for their brands. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 24
    • PHI Learning Motivation Consumer Behaviour Motivation signifies the processes that cause consumers to  behave as they do, involving needs, goals and drives. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 25

    • PHI Learning Motivational Intensity Depends on: How strongly consumers are motivated to satisfy a particular need. Importance of Involvement: Degree to which an object or behaviour is personally relevant. Motivational intensity and involvement determine the amount of effort consumers exert in satisfying needs. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 31
    • PHI Learning The Challenge of Understanding  Consumer Motivation Reasons underlying consumer motivation are not always obvious. Research is necessary to discover real motivations behind behaviours. Consumers at times do not always want to disclose real reasons for their particular choice or actions. Consumers do not always know why they do what they do: unconscious motivation. Motivations change over time. Let us take an example of car buying and its underlying motivations. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 32
    • PHI Learning Why Automobile? Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 33
    • PHI Learning Automotive Sector Classification of the Automotive Industry • Commercial vehicles (Trucks and Buses) • Passenger Cars and Multi‐utility vehicles  • Two‐wheelers • Three‐wheelers • Tractors For explaining  motivations , we will concentrate on  passenger cars and multi‐utility vehicles. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 34

    • PHI Learning Thank You. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 50
    • PHI Learning Consumer Perception Consumer Perception 51 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Perception is Reality LOUIS CHESKIN 52 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Perception Process by which sensations are selected, organized, and interpreted Adding meaning to raw sensations 53 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Elements of Perception Sensation Absolute threshold Differential threshold Subliminal threshold 54 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Sensation Immediate response of our sensory receptors… …eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers… …to basic stimuli… …such as light, colour, sound, odour, and texture …advertisements, brand names, commercials, and packages …depends on the sensitivity of the individual 55 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning The Absolute Threshold The lowest level at which an individual can experience a sensation. The point which differentiates between “something” and “nothing”. Example: Absolute threshold of driver driving on highway to notice billboard. Adaptation: Getting ‘used to’ certain sensation. 56 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Attention The extent to which processing activity is devoted to a particular stimulus Competition for our attention 3,500 ad info pieces per day Multitasking Marketers need to break through the clutter Microsoft’s butterfly decals on sidewalks 3D logos on cricket grounds 57 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning The Differential Threshold The minimal detectable difference between two similar stimuli (just noticeable difference). It’s not at all the absolute difference. It’s an amount relative to the intensity of the first stimulus. The stronger the initial stimulus, the greater the additional intensity needed for second stimulus to be perceived as differentiated. 58 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Marketing Applications of the JND Need to determine the relevant JND for the products so that negative changes are not readily discernible to the public. product improvements are quite visible to consumers. 59 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Gradual Changes in Brand Name 60 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Subliminal Perception Perception of very weak or rapid stimuli received below the level of conscious awareness 61 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Perceptual Selection Stimulus Selection Factors Weber’s Law Differences in size, colour, position, and novelty Interpretation: assigned meaning to stimuli Schema leads to stimulus evaluation 62 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Weber’s Law A theory concerning the perceived differentiation between similar stimuli of varying intensities (i.e. the stronger the initial stimulus, the greater the additional intensity needed for the second stimulus to be perceived as different). 63 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Perceptual Selection Depends on two major factors Consumers’ previous experience (expectations) Consumers’ motives 64 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Some Marketing Variables Influencing Consumer Perception Nature of the product Physical attributes of the product Package design Brand name Advertisements and commercials Position of an ad 65 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Concepts Concerning Selective Perception Selective exposure Selective attention Perceptual defense Perceptual blocking 66 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Stimulus Organization • Stimulus interpretation is associated with other related events, sensations, or images • Gestalt: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. • The Closure Principle—People tend to perceive an incomplete picture as complete. • The Principle of Similarity—Groups objects share similar characteristics. • The Figure–Ground Principle—One part of the stimulus will dominate (the figure/background). 67 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Gestalt Laws of Grouping • The primary purpose of the visual system is the recognition of objects from basic visual elements. • The objects are seen as more than a sum of the parts, and the critical problem facing the visual system is how to group the elements to form objects. 68 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Demonstration of the Importance of Objects over Elements When elements are arranged in groups that define an object, we tend to see the object and not the elements. FFFFFFF FF FFFF FF FFFFFFF vs. EEEEEE EE EEEE EE EEEEEE 69 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Law of Proximity Things that are relatively close to one another tend to be grouped together. 70 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning The Law of Similarity Items that look similar will be seen as parts of the same form. 71 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning The Law of Good Continuation The tendency to perceive unseen parts of a pattern as continuing in a predictable and simple manner. 72 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning The Law of Closure Often, an object is partly occluded by other objects in our environment, and the visual system must fill in the missing information. 73 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning A Related Phenomenon Illusory Contours 74 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning The Law of Common Fate Elements of visual perception that move together are seen as forming a common object. 75 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Common Fate Example - 1 76 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Common Fate Example - 2 77 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Common Fate Example - 3 78 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Common Fate Example - 4 79 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Figuring out what the objects are The Gestalt principles help us to understand how we figure out what the objects are, and how to interpret them. However, they do not explain how we figure out what an object is once we realize it is an object. 80 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Figure and Ground 81 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning The Figure-Ground Principle • This billboard for Wrangler jeans makes creative use of the figure-ground principle. 82 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Perceptual Positioning Brand perceptions =functional attributes + symbolic attributes Perceptual map Company’s own strengths and weaknesses in comparison with competitors 83 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar

    • PHI Learning Thank You 85 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning 86 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Consumer Perception Consumer selects, organizes and interprets stimuli  into a meaningful and coherent picture of the world. How we view the World around us! Consumers make decisions based on what they  perceive rather than what the objective reality is. Consumers see what they want to see! 87 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Elements of Perception Sensation: Stimuli and Intensity  Absolute threshold (e.g. seeing an ad)  Sensory adaptation (Phenomenon of getting  used to),  e.g. change ad campaigns, package Differential threshold JND (Weber’s Law); product  improvement decisions Negative changes (Price rise, size, quality reductions,  etc.) 88 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Selective Perceptions Nature of the stimulus: What you want to see is based  on what your motives are at that time. Selective exposure: Pleasant ads Expectations and previous experience 89 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Perceived Risk An uncertainty arises when consumers  cannot  foresee the consequences of their purchase decisions. Depends on the person,the product, and the purchase  situation. High risk perceivers categorized as narrow  categorizers. 90 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Broad Categories  Product category perceived risk, e.g. to buy a digital  camera or not. Product specific perceived risk, e.g. which brand of  camera to buy. 91 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Types of Perceived Risk  Functional risk: The risk that the product will not  perform as expected. Will the cell phone I bought  work for the given  warranty period? Physical risk: The risk to self and others that the  product may pose . Will the cell phone damage my health? Is it safe to  use?  92 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Types of Perceived Risk Financial risk: The risk that the product will not  be worth its price. Will the price of mobile/laptop drop after I buy it? Social risk: The risk that a poor product choice  may result in some form of social embarrassment. Will my mobile look like an outdated model?  93 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Types of Perceived Risk Psychological risk: The Risk that a poor product choice  will bruise the consumer’s ego. After buying this product, will my peer group members  laugh that it is a wrong choice?   Time risk: The risk that the time spent in product search  may be wasted if the product does not perform as  expected. I have spent so much time in buying a new camera/laptop.  Was it worth or a waste of time? 94 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning How Customers Handle Risk Seek information, word of mouth, newspapers Buy known brands/become loyal, e.g. buy Annapurna Atta. Select by Company/Brand image, e.g. buy Sony TV / Nokia Cell phones. 95 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning How Customers Handle Risk (cont.) Rely on Store image, e.g. buying from known shops. Buy the most expensive model.  Seek reassurance (money‐back guarantees, pre‐purchase trial, warranty  period). 96 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Application of the Concept Find out the nature of risk customers perceive before  purchasing  new products. Remove the nature of anxiety of customers. 97 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Thank You 98 Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar
    • PHI Learning Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 99
    • PHI Learning Consumer Beliefs Consumer Attitudes Consumer Intentions Consumer Behaviour Consumer Feelings Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 100
    • PHI Learning Beliefs are the knowledge and inferences that a consumer has about products/brands and possible benefits derived from using them. Beliefs result from cognitive learning. Attribute importance springs from: A person’s assessment of the significance of an attribute. The amount of attention directed to it. A person’s self-concept, advertising, and the salience of the attribute can influence the attention focussed on it. Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 101
    • PHI Learning Brand distinctiveness: Consumer perception of a brand and company’s marketing effort leads to developing certain personality of each brand, e.g. Tanishq Jewellery. Inferential beliefs: Information about one product of a company makes consumers to form belief about another, price-quality beliefs, partially comparative pricing, e.g. Akai TV, Big Bazaar retail. Consumer confusion: Insufficient/conflicting information, mistaken identity, irrelevant ad slogan/appeal, change in the brand’s key focus and positioning, e.g. Marie biscuits (Britannia, Parle). Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 102
    • PHI Learning Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 103
    • PHI Learning Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 104
    • PHI Learning Beliefs Companies or Retailers mark up prices before putting them up on sale. Discounts offered by reputed companies are genuine reduction in prices. Examples Bargaining behaviour Wait for the discount announcement Celebrities are admired by their followers though Success of soaps and they do not use the product they endorse. cosmetics Lower price generally means inferior quality. Higher priced brands are not superior in quality by the same degree of multiplier. Positioning at a lower quality end, as done by Haier, Lenovo Shopping in a big departmental store saves money. Big Bazaar, Subhiksha Packaged ready-to-eat food items marketed in India are generally not fresh. Limited success of MTR, ITC foods Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 105
    • PHI Learning As part of “Advertising Experience”: Influence on viewers’ moods, attitudes, recall, affinity, Examples: Hamara Bajaj Campaign, Amul Butter—“Utterly, butterly delicious” As part of “Shopping Experience”: Influence of availability, “environment/ambience” Examples: Maruti service centres, Cafe’ Coffee Day, Brista coffee As part of “Consumption Experience”: Influence consumers’ consumption evaluation Examples: Vanilla Coke, Blue Pepsi, Asian Paints Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 106
    • PHI Learning Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 107
    • PHI Learning “Desirable Attributes create positive attitudes” Example: Health drinks Attitudes are: a kind of feeling for or against a stimulus; stored in long-term memory; the cognitive knowledge about an object; predicted by beliefs in high involvement purchase situations.

    • PHI Learning Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 111
    • PHI Learning Utilitarian function: Used to obtain rewards and avoid punishments Ego-defensive function: Self-protection Example: mouthwash Knowledge function: Simplifies decisions Example: Forming of loyalty to certain brands Value-expressive function: Expresses identity to others Example: use of (IIM-C) labelled t-shirts Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 112
    • PHI Learning Direct formation Corresponds to the decision-making perspective and cognitive learning. Linked to the experiential perspective. Classical conditioning/Associative learning: Positive affect is attached to object–using a jingle. Mere exposure—frequent exposure to stimulus increases one’s desire for it. Environmental forces Example: design of the physical environment, cafes Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 113
    • PHI Learning Decision-making hierarchies: High involvement: beliefs Low involvement: beliefs Experiential hierarchy: Affect behaviour attitudes behaviour behaviour attitudes beliefs Behavioural influence hierarchy: Behaviour beliefs affect Consumer Behaviour: Insights from Indian Market—Ramanuj Majumdar 114
