1.1. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
In order to stay profitable and competitive in today’s market, satisfying customer is vital. So as to meet this goal, understanding the customers’ behaviours should be given a top priority.
These days, organizations are expected to perform more than producing products and delivering services. Before producing products or delivering services, there is a need to do customer research. The customer research enables to answer questions like what the market buys, why the market buys, who participate in the buying, how the market buys, when the market buys, where the market buys and the like. But learning about the whys of consumer buying behaviour is not so easy the answers are often locked deep within the consumer’s head.
Marketing is the art of creating, attracting, and keeping customers, in order to convert occasional purchasers in to brand loyalists; habits must be reinforced by appealing to the factors that shape consumer behaviours which include the cultural, social, personal and psychological characteristics; because they hold the key to success or failure of any product.
Among the aforementioned factors which influence consumer purchases, this research focuses on the psychological factors particularly attitude and perception. Consumer’s attitudes towards a product according to Kotler and Armsrong (2006) is being shaped and influenced by psychological factors such as motivation, perception, learning, personality, attitude and belief.
Perception is the process by which an individual selects, organizes and interprets stimuli in to a meaningful and coherent picture of the world. Two individuals may be exposed to the same stimuli under the same apparent conditions, but how each person recognizes, selects, organizes and interprets these stimuli is a highly individual process based on each person’s own needs, values, and expectations.…...

Beer Industry 5 Forces

...make up the “buyers” of beer are made up of distributors/wholesales, retailers/restaurants, and consumers. Distributor/wholesalers embody an essential link in the market channel for breweries here in the US given regulations prohibiting the sale of beer directly to both retailers and consumers. Thus, distributors/wholesalers have quite a bit of bargaining power and can impact market share by way of their support, marketing, and promotions depending on the incentives offered by the manufacturer. Retailers and restaurants are another cog of the buyer channel. The main goal of the retailer is to drive traffic through their stores in order to improve sales and, coincidentally, balancing profit margins. As a result, retailers are looking to stock their shelves or bars with the beer products that are selling with a recent focus on more sub-premium brands due to the recent economic situation, as well as supporting their growth of craft beers which have been outgrowing the industry and offer higher average selling prices as well as higher margins. Lastly, consumers ultimately drive the preferences of both the distributor and the retailer channel as they are the end “user” of the beer beverage. With the plethora of beverage choices in the market, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, along with the consumer becoming increasingly knowledgeable, several themes have played out impacting the industry: As noted above, consumers are trading up to craft beers given consumers are......

Would You Sell Your Town for a Beer Ad?

...small ski town in Crested Butte, Colorado and Anheuser-Busch. The articles are about Anheuser-Busch basically taking over the town for a three day Bud Light party for what started out to be for $250k has now turned into half a million dollars. This is a difficult decision to make for these small seasonal towns that make all of their money during the tourist season and then struggle the rest of the year to make ends meet. When Mayor Huckstep, of Crested Butte, Colorado approved the event, it was a tough decision. With the help of other members of the community, he felt it best for the economy of the small town. Many of the small town folk are in an uproar of how this will change their small, close knit community. That they will lose their quiet, quaint atmosphere. Anheuser-Busch plans to fly in 1,000 young adults and they have already painted the streets, light posts and many other things blue to publicize the Bud Light event. I believe this is a great strategy to boost the economy of these small seasonal towns to generate an income. This event will bring in lots of jobs for the town people which they really need during their slow season. Not to mention the half a million dollars Anheuser-Busch is calling a “donation”. Large companies like Anheuser-Busch will continue to advertise and produce commercials and I like that they are giving the opportunity to small seasonal towns in need of the revenue. Would you sell your town for a beer ad? Turkewitz, Julie. “Town......

...Literature Review BRM 1 Abstract This paper seeks to identify the customer’s preferences, behavior and shift of behavior in the Chinese food market and how they can influence foreign companies’ marketing strategy. This literature review shows that, pushed by a multitude of factors, the Chinese food consumption and food consumer’s behavior have strongly changed over the past 10 years, both in quantity and quality demand, creating a lot of opportunities for foreign companies. Moreover, the Chinese cultural background and preferences are identified as playing an important role in the willingness to buy (WTB) and shopping habits which prompts for a more adaptive approach of marketing. Introduction In the past decade, China has seen a lot of both positive and negative factors influence its food consumption and its society as a whole. Three main socio-economic factors are identified by the previous literature. Urbanization has been growing fast, more than 50% of the population lived in urban areas and it is expected to reach 75% by 2035. Moreover, the average income has been continuously rising and contributes to the growth of the middle upper class granting an easier access to goods. Finally, the demand or the need for imported goods rocketed, fueled by the recurring food scandals. (Gale, Hansen, Jewison, 2014) This evolution largely contributed in turning the Chinese food market, now the largest in the world, into a very attractive potential market for......
