Breathe Right nasal strips account for the great majority of CNS's sales. The nasal strips are also the ONLY clinically proven FDA treatment for snore relief due to nasal congestion. CNS initially marketed the strips to sports teams, nasal sufferers and night-time snorers.  The Breathe Right Strips are one of the many products available for consumers to prevent snoring. The industry for anti-snoring products is fairly large. There are snoring pills, mouthpieces, medical treatments, surgery, vaporizers, nasal sprays, nasal dilators, and oral strips. CNS has developed a strong brand equity that has separated itself from regular anti-snoring products because it enables the consumer to use the strips easily without the use of drugs and medication. It is affordable and hassle-free compared to nasal dilators and mouthpieces. Through the years, CNS has run continuing education lessons to educate pharmacists, and has underwritten scientific studies to build credibility within the medical community.

There are 3 main factors that are used in studying consumer behavior. The factors are: Personal, Psychological and Social. In using the personal factor, consumers base their decisions on personal beliefs. Age, gender, background, culture and other personal beliefs. Psychological factors can include perception of a need or situation, the person's ability to learn or understand information, and an individual's attitude. Social influencers are quite diverse and can include a person's family, social interaction, work or school communities, or any group of people a person affiliates with. It can also include a person's social class, which involves income, living conditions, and education level. The consumer buying process is the series of steps that a consumer will take to make a purchasing decision. A standard model of consumer purchase decision-making includes recognition of needs and wants, information search, evaluation of choices, purchase, and post-purchase evaluation. There is a relationship between the influences on consumer behavior and the consumer buying process.

A more humanized system to the eyes of these who are going away from humanity. The direct use of this campaign on this generation will impact the Dell finances positively.

Computers that could estimate how you feel and what you would like to do based on metrics and reading on history processing software.

...Assignment Case study one 1. What behaviors are involved in online grocery shopping? The online grocery shopping consists of various types of behaviors; such as information contact, funds access, store contact, product contact and transaction behaviors. Information contact behavior is mostly a part of online grocery shopping, where consumers used to search their required products and order through online processes. The fund access behavior is also used in online grocery shopping while purchasing products through online by using their credit/debit cards or net banking. Sometime, customers used to order through online but visit the nearest stores to bring the product after inspecting; such as fresh vegetables, milk products and meat or animal proteins etc. therefore, they must search for the nearest store and product and contact them to bring those pre-ordered products. There are several behaviors involved in online grocery shopping.

Yaris Case (Mkt-420: Consumer Behavior)

... CASE 3-7 POSITIONING THE YARIS MKT-420 Jessica J. Borishchak DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 2. From the perceptual map, explain why Yaris wants to be an exciting economy car. According to your results in Question 1, has Yaris achieved its objective of achieving that position? Does it depend on the age group? Discuss. Although the largest segment, according to the perceptual map, is that of dull and economy vehicles, Yaris’ choice to instead target the market for exciting and economy cars is a wise move on the company’s behalf. Not only are there few cars that fit this criteria, but the market is still considerably large (looking at the perceptual map). There are far fewer competitors within this quadrant, and thus targeting it increases the chance of success. Following my results from Question 1, it was very interesting to see how different age groups responded slightly differently. However, speaking to fellow classmates, it appeared to me as though my results may have been skewed by the lack of diversity within the people whom I chose to interview. My interviewees consisted of people who have an Eastern European background. From my experience, they are more inclined to follow traditions and oftentimes see things through their parents’ eyes. That might explain why both age groups generally found the Yaris to be an exciting economy vehicle. Thus, it would seem that marketing for the Yaris has been quite successful at positioning it as an exciting economy car. However, when......

Case 2-Consumer Behavior

...Case 2-3 Virtually Free! 1. Consumers, whether adults or children, have to learn how to play online games like Tiny Zoo and Castleville. In this part of the book, learning is described as being intentional or unintentional. Explain your opinion on whether these games are learned more by intentional or unintentional learning mechanisms. Intentional learning is the process by which consumers set out to specifically learn information devoted to a certain subject. Unintentional learning is learning that occurs when behavior is modified through a consumer-stimulus interaction without any effortful allocation of cognitive processing capacity toward that stimulus. In this situation I feel the games are learned by intentional learning. In this situation the consumer is actively taking an interest in how they wish to accomplish a particular task and participate in the activity. 2. Brand loyalty is an important marketing concept. Define the concept of schema. How important is the brand schema in consumer decisions to play these games? Do you think consumers think of the company (Zynga), the game (Cityville), or the host (Facebook) when playing the games? A schema can be defined as the mental concept that informs a person about what to expect from a variety of experiences and situations. A schema can be developed based on information that is provided by life experiences and are then stored in the memory. The brand schema in consumer decisions to play these games is...

...Bryne Beck Dr. Moore Consumer Behavior 05/06/2016 Case 1-1 1. Where does IDEO get inspiration for its product designs? Answer: I believe IDEO gets their inspiration from Thomas Edison and their consumers. 2. What kind of value do you think successful products deliver to consumers? Answer: Successful products leads to a higher satisfaction to the consumer, which in return, produces a higher value for that product. 3. Why do you think having a product that simply works doesn’t always translate to consumer acceptance? Answer: Consumers have both physical and psychological needs. If a product works but is unpleasant to that consumer in anyway then they will never accept it. 4. What is the relative importance of the utilitarian versus the hedonic value of products, as suggested by the work of IDEO? Answer: The success for IDEO comes from the fact they understand that utility is not enough and is why the product development requires consumers experience. 5. Do you agree with Edison’s observation that “genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”? Explain your answer. Answer: People spend a tremendous amount of time solving problems and studying the issue. IDEO realizes they must first know their customer before actually solving any problems. Case 1-2 1.
