Major Classic Consumer Buying Behaviour Models: Implications for Marketing Decision-Making.

Orji, O. Goodhope

Abstract


Ability of the Marketing executive to effectively and efficiently design, plan and produce a product, price it, strategically promote and distinctively distribute it, is determined by his ability to make the product satisfactory to a complex set of consumers. McCarthy (1971) opines that, Marketing is the performance of business activities that direct the flow of goods and services from the producers to consumers or users in order to satisfy customers and accomplish the firm’s objectives. The consumer is the pivot on which all marketing activities and decisions revolve. The consumer as the central focus of marketing activities has remained complex and unpredictable. What motivates, induces or informs his choice of one product brand rather than the other has been a subject of investigations and researches. The formulation and adoption of major classic and contemporary models in consumer and organizational behaviour for managerial decision-making in marketing practice is justified on the need to ensure knowledge of consumers for effective and efficient service delivery. Consequently, this paper broadly reviews major classic contour behaviour models in relationship to managerial decision-making in marketing practice.

Keywords: Consumer Behaviour, Classic models, marketing practice, managerial decision-makings.
