  6. 6. 6 CHAPTER – 1 INTRODUCTION The topic of my minor project report is ‘Consumer perception & buying behavior in relation to products of Apple Art Press Pvt. Ltd.’ now let us see that what consumer perception is all about. For understanding what consumer perception & buying behavior is all about we need to know what is marketing. So first we would study what marketing is. Marketing is "the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large." For business to consumer marketing, it is "the process by which companies create value for customers and build strong customer relationships, in order to capture value from customers in return". For business to business marketing it is creating value, solutions, and relationships either short term or long term with a company or brand. It generates the strategy that underlies sales techniques, business communication, and business developments. It is an integrated process through which companies build strong customer relationships and create value for their customers and for themselves. Consumer perception The Business Dictionary defines consumer perception as a “marketing concept that encompasses a customer’s impression, awareness or consciousness about a company or its offerings. Typically, customer perception is affected by advertising, reviews, public relations, social media, personal experiences, and other channels.” Why is customer perception important? In today’s digital age, virtually everything is a Google search away. This makes your goods and services easier to find, but the tradeoff is that your competition is easier to find as well. That means it’s easier for unhappy or unsatisfied customers to leave.
  7. 7. 7 Consumers want good quality, but they also want to know they are getting good value. That value isn’t just judged by the product or service they are purchasing, but by the availability and usability of the customer service that supports it. It’s just not enough anymore to have brand recognition, consumers want to feel good about a brand and company. They want to do business with civic-minded corporations with positive world views. What influences customer perception? Knowing first what influences customer perception allows you to secure your organization’s perceived identity. Some factors that influence individual’s perceptions include: Advertising – The campaigns your company runs offer implied perceptions about your products. What you say about your brand/company and the messages you deliver help others form opinions. Influencers – The people that surround an individual have a massive impact on their decisions. Whether they be in person or via social media, human nature is such that individuals listen to the opinions and thoughts of those around them. Personal experience – This is the biggest of all factors that weigh in to customer perception. If someone has experienced firsthand the quality of a product or service or the responsiveness and usefulness of a customer service channel, it will positively or negatively impact their perception. Buying behavior A marketing firm must ascertain the nature of customers' buying behavior if it is to market its product properly. In order to entice and persuade a consumer to buy a product, marketers try to determine the behavioral process of how a given product is purchased. B2C buying behavior This mode of behavior concerns consumers and their purchase of a given product. For example, if one imagines a pair of sneakers, the desire for a pair of sneakers would be followed by an information search on available types/brands. This may include
  8. 8. 8 perusing media outlets, but most commonly consists of information gathered from family and friends. If the information search is insufficient, the consumer may search for alternative means to satisfy the need/want. In this case, this may mean buying leather shoes, sandals, etc. B2B buying behavior It relates to organizational/industrial buying behavior. Business buy either wholesale from other businesses or directly from the manufacturer in contracts or agreements. B2B marketing involves one business marketing a product or service to another business. B2C and B2B behavior are not precise terms, as similarities and differences exist, with some key differences listed below: In a straight re-buy, the fourth, fifth and sixth stages are omitted. In a modified re-buy scenario, the fifth and sixth stages are precluded. In a new buy, all stages are conducted. MARKETING MIX The marketing mix is a business tool used in marketing products. The marketing mix is often crucial when determining a product or brand's unique selling point (the unique quality that differentiates a product from its competitors), and is often synonymous with the four Ps: price, product, promotion, and place. The marketing mix consists of four P that are, PRODUCT, PLACE, PRICE and PROMOTION. Given below is a brief explanation of all the P’s.  Product - A product is seen as an item that satisfies what a consumer needs or wants. It is a tangible good or an intangible service. Intangible products are service based like the tourism industry, the hotel industry and the financial industry. Tangible products are those that have an independent physical existence. Typical examples of mass-produced, tangible objects are the motor car and the disposable razor.  Price– The price is the amount a customer pays for the product. The price is very important as it determines the company's profit and hence, survival. Adjusting the price has a profound impact on the marketing strategy, and depending on the price elasticity of the product, often it will affect the demand and sales as well. The marketer should set a price that complements the other elements of the marketing mix.
  9. 9. 9  Place - refers to providing the product at a place which is convenient for consumers to access. Place is synonymous with distribution. Various strategies such as intensive distribution, selective distribution, exclusive distribution and franchising can be used by the marketer to complement the other aspects of the marketing mix.  Promotion - represents all of the methods of communication that a marketer may use to provide information to different parties about the product. Promotion comprises elements such as: advertising, public relations, personal selling and sales promotion. FACTORS AFFECTING CONSUMER BUYING BEHAVIOUR Consumer buying behavior refers to the selection, purchase and consumption of goods and services for the satisfaction of their wants. There are different processes involved in the consumer behavior. Initially the consumer tries to find what commodities he would like to consume, then he selects only those commodities that promise greater utility. After selecting the commodities, the consumer makes an estimate of the available money which he can spend. 1. Cultural Factors Consumer buying behavior is deeply influenced by cultural factors such as: buyer culture, subculture, and social class. a) CULTURE Basically, culture is the part of every society and is the important cause of person wants and behavior. The influence of culture on perception & buying behavior varies from country to country therefore marketers have to be very careful in analyzing the culture of different groups, regions or even countries. b) SUBCULTURE Each culture contains different subcultures such as religions, nationalities, geographic regions, racial groups etc. Marketers can use these groups by segmenting the market into various small portions. For example marketers can design products according to the needs of a particular geographic group.
  10. 10. 10 c) SOCIAL CLASS Every society possesses some form of social class which is important to the marketers because the perception & buying behavior of people in a given social class is similar. In this way marketing activities could be tailored according to different social classes. 2. Social Factors Social factors also impact the perception & buying behavior of consumers. The important social factors are: reference groups, family, role and status. a) REFERENCE GROUPS Reference groups have potential in forming a person attitude or behavior. The impact of reference groups varies across products and brands. For example if the product is visible such as dress, shoes, car etc then the influence of reference groups will be high. b) FAMILY Buyer behavior is strongly influenced by the member of a family. Therefore marketers are trying to find the roles and influence of the husband, wife and children. If the buying decision of a particular product is influenced by wife then the marketers will try to target the women in their advertisement. c) ROLES AND STATUS Each person possesses different roles and status in the society depending upon the groups, clubs, family, organization etc. to which he belongs. For example a woman is working in an organization as finance manager. 3. Personal Factors Personal factors can also affect the consumer behavior. Some of the important personal factors that influence the buying behavior are: lifestyle, economic situation, occupation, age, personality and self-concept.
  11. 11. 11 a) AGE Age and life-cycle have potential impact on the consumer buying behavior. It is obvious that the consumers change the purchase of goods and services with the passage of time. Family life-cycle consists of different stages such young singles, married couples, unmarried couples etc which help marketers to develop appropriate products for each stage. b) OCCUPATION The occupation of a person has significant impact on his buying behavior. For example a marketing manager of an organization will try to purchase business suits, whereas a low level worker in the same organization will purchase rugged work clothes. c) ECONOMIC SITUATION Consumer economic situation has great influence on his buying behavior. If the income and savings of a customer is high then he will purchase more expensive products. On the other hand, a person with low income and savings will purchase inexpensive products. d) LIFESTYLE Lifestyle of customers is another import factor affecting the consumer buying behavior. Lifestyle refers to the way a person lives in a society and is expressed by the things in his/her surroundings. It is determined by customer interests, opinions, activities etc and shapes his whole pattern of acting and interacting in the world. e) PERSONALITY Personality changes from person to person, time to time and place to place. Therefore it can greatly influence the buying behavior of customers. Actually, Personality is not what one wears; rather it is the totality of behavior of a man in different circumstances.
  12. 12. 12 4. Psychological Factors There are four important psychological factors affecting the consumer buying behavior. These are: perception, motivation, learning, beliefs and attitudes. a) MOTIVATION The level of motivation also affects the buying behavior of customers. Every person has different needs such as physiological needs, biological needs, social needs etc. The nature of the needs is that, some of them are most pressing while others are least pressing. b) PERCEPTION Selecting, organizing and interpreting information in a way to produce a meaningful experience of the world is called perception. There are three different perceptual processes which are selective attention, selective distortion and selective retention. In case of selective attention, marketers try to attract the customer attention. Whereas, in case of selective distortion, customers try to interpret the information in a way that will support what the customers already believe. BELIEFS AND ATTITUDES Customer possesses specific belief and attitude towards various products. Since such beliefs and attitudes make up brand image and affect consumer buying behavior therefore marketers are interested in them. c) LEARNING Learning is defined as changes in an individual’s behavior arising from experience. Having perceived an advertisement, individuals acquire, store, and retrieve, messages about products, brands and companies.
  13. 13. 13 OBJECTIVESOF THE STUDY a) To check the buying behavior for AAP products. The main and foremost objective of the project is to analyze the buying behavior of customers for AAP with other companies. b) To determine the market share of AAP. The second objective of the project is to determine the market share of AAP in the market. There was a tough competition among the companies in the market. Therefore to get establish, company had to make its competitors analysis and need to determine where do they stand. c) To identify pros and cons of the company. This is the fundamental objective of the whole research. Company wants to identify that where does it lacks, or what are the pros and cons of the company. d) To identify the expectations of the customers regarding goods and services. The objective of the research is to identify the expectations of the customers regarding goods and services of the company.
  14. 14. 14 REVIEW OF LITERATURE In this chapter, research work done in the past regarding awareness, purchase behavior, brand preference, factors influencing brand preference and alternative purchase plans has been reviewed and presented under the following sub-headings.  PERCEPTION of consumers towards branded products  Purchase behavior of consumers  Brand preference  Factors influencing brand preference  Alternative purchase plans  Overview PERCEPTION & BUYING BEHAVIOU OF CONSUMERS TOWARDS BRANDED PRODUCTS Aaker (2000) opined that, brand awareness was remarkably durable and sustainable asset. It provides a sense of familiarity especially in low-involvement products, a sense of presence or commitment and substance and it was very important to recall at the time of purchasing process. Apart from the conventional mass media, there were other effective means to create awareness viz., event promotions, publicity, sampling and other attention getting approaches. Brown et al. (2000) reported that the need for effective nutritional education for young consumers has become increasingly apparent, given their general habits and behavior, particularly during adolescence and analyzed that the interaction between young consumers’ preferences and their nutritional awareness behavior, within three environments (home, school and social interaction appears to be somewhat overshadowed by the young consumers, while developing an independence trait, particularly, during the adolescent years. The authors suggested that preferences are often of a type and consequently the habits of many young consumers while young consumers were aware of behavior did not always appear to reflect such knowledge, particularly within the school and social environments.
  15. 15. 15 Beverland (2001) studied the level of brand awareness within the New Zealand market for ZESPRI kiwi fruit. The effectiveness of this branding strategy employed by kiwi fruit, New Zealand was studied. The implications of the findings for agribusiness in general using the data collected from surveys of kiwi fruit consumers (n=106) outside three major super market chains in Auckland, New Zealand, suggested that the level of brand awareness for ZESPRI is low among consumers. It is indicated that brand awareness could be increased through a relationship-making programmer involving targeted marketing and supply chain management.
