2 information search l.jpg

2: Information Search

  • Internal Search – recalling past information stored in memory

  • External Search – seeking information in the outside environment

    • Private (non marketing sources)

    • Public (non marketing sources)

    • Marketing controlled sources


The 8 stages of consumer information processing l.jpg

The 8 Stages of Consumer Information Processing

CPM


Consumer information processing stage 1 l.jpg

Consumer Information Processing: Stage 1

Exposure to information

  • Consumers come in contact with the marketer’s message

  • Gaining exposure is a necessary but insufficient for communication success

  • A function of key managerial decisions regarding the size of the budget and the choice of media and vehicles


Selective attention stage 2 l.jpg

Selective Attention: Stage 2

Attention

  • Focus on and consider a message to which one has been exposed

  • Highly selective


Selective attention stage 212 l.jpg

Selective Attention: Stage 2

To attract consumers attention:

  • Appeals to cognitive and hedonic needs

  • Use of novel stimuli

  • Use of intense stimuli

  • Use of motion


Selective attention stage 213 l.jpg

Selective Attention: Stage 2

Illustration of

selective attention


Appeals to cognitive and hedonic needs l.jpg

Appeals to Cognitive andHedonic Needs

Cognitive Needs

Immediate functional needs of the consumer

Hedonic Needs

Needs that make

them feel good

and bring pleasure


Hedonic needs l.jpg

Hedonic Needs

Hedonic appeal to

the love for babies


Use of intense stimuli l.jpg

Comprehension stage 3 l.jpg

Comprehension: Stage 3

  • Understand and create meaning out of stimuli and symbols

  • Interpreting stimuli involves perceptual encoding

  • Peculiar to each individual (idiosyncratic)

  • Mood can influence

  • Miscomprehension are common


Consumer information processing stage 4 l.jpg

Consumer Information Processing: Stage 4

Agreement with what is comprehended

The matter of whether consumers yield to

- that is, agree with - what they have

comprehended


Agreement stage 4 l.jpg

Agreement: Stage 4

  • Comprehension by itself does not ensure that the message influences consumers’ behavior

  • Agreement depends on

    • whether the message is credible

    • whether the information appeals to the consumer


Retention and search retrieval of stored information l.jpg

Retention and Search/Retrieval of Stored Information

These two information processing stages,

retention and information search and

retrieval, both involve memory factors

related to consumer choice


Elements of memory l.jpg

Elements of Memory

Memory

Memory involves the related issues of what

consumers remember about marketing

stimuli and how they access and retrieve

information when making consumption

choices


Elements of memory23 l.jpg

Elements of Memory

  • Sensory stores(SS):

    • Information is rapidly lost unless attention is allocated to the stimulus

  • Short-Term Memory(STM):

    • Limited processing capacity

    • Not thought or rehearsed information will be lost in 30 seconds or less


Elements of memory24 l.jpg

Elements of Memory

  • Long-Term Memory (LTM):

    • A virtual storehouse of unlimited information

    • Information is organized into coherent and associated cognitive units called schemata, memory organization packets, or knowledge structures

    • The marketer’s job is to provide positively valued information that consumers will store in LTM

Learning and ltm l.jpg

Learning and LTM

  • Learning represents changes in the content or organization of information in consumers’ long-term memories

  • Marketing communicators attempt to alter consumers’ long-term memories, knowledge structures, by facilitating learning of information that is compatible with the marketer’s interest

learning


Search and retrieval of information l.jpg

Search and Retrieval of Information

  • Information that is learned and stored in memory only impacts consumer choice behavior when it is searched and retrieved

  • Retrieval is facilitated when new information is linked with another concept that is well known and easily accessed


Use of concretizing and imagery l.jpg

Use of Concretizing and Imagery

Concretizing

It is easier for people to remember and

retrieve tangible rather than abstract

information, so claims about a brand are

more concrete when they are made

perceptible, palpable, real, evident, and vivid


Use of concretizing and imagery30 l.jpg

Use of Concretizing and Imagery

Imagery

Representation of sensory experiences

in short-term memory including visual,

auditory, and other sensory, experiences

framing


Evaluation of alternatives l.jpg

Evaluation of Alternatives

  • Consideration set

  • Analyze product attributes

  • Use cut off criteria [pros/cons]

  • Multi-attribute models


Consumer decision making stage 7 l.jpg

Consumer Decision Making: Stage 7

Decision heuristics for decision making

  • Affect referral

  • Compensatory heuristic

  • Conjunctive heuristic

  • Phased strategies


Affect referral l.jpg

Affect Referral

Recalls attitude, or

affect, toward relevant

alternatives

Selects the alternative for which the affect is most positive


Compensatory heuristic l.jpg

Compensatory Heuristic

Evaluates alternatives in terms of criteria trade-off

Chooses the alternative with criteria that best compensates for inferior criteria


Conjunctive heuristic l.jpg

Conjunctive Heuristic

Evaluates alternatives in terms of criteria minimum cutoffs

Selects the alternative with criteria that meets all minimum cutoffs


Phased strategies l.jpg

Phased Strategies

Evaluates alternatives using both compensatory and noncompensatory heuristics

Chooses using a combination of heuristics


4 purchase l.jpg

4: Purchase

  • To buy or not to buy…

  • Marketing determines which attributes are most important in influencing a consumers’ choice (differentiation…later)


Action stage 8 l.jpg

Action: Stage 8

Action on the basis of the decision

  • People do not always behave in a manner consistent with their preferences due to the presence of events, or situational factors

  • Situational factors are especially prevalent in low-involvement consumer behavior

5 post purchase behavior l.jpg

5: Post Purchase Behavior

  • Cognitive dissonance:

    • Did I make a good decision?

    • Did I buy the right one? Get a good value?

  • Marketing minimizes through:

    • Effective communication

    • Follow up

    • Guarantees

    • Warranties
