About this Unit
Consumer Psychology is the study of how people relate to and involve with products and services that they purchase or use. It attempts to describe, predict, explain, and/or influence consumer responses to products and service-related information and experiences. It contains a broad range of theoretical, conceptual, and methodological perspectives. It is indeed the psychology of how consumers think, feel, reason, and select between different alternatives (e.g., brands, products); how the consumer is influenced by his or her environment (e.g., culture, family, signs, media) and what leads to buying behaviour. By understanding the consumer, we will be able to make informed decisions and apply appropriate marketing and advertising strategies.
