The world of marketing is an ever-changing one. Not simply because consumers' desires change, but also because today marketers have more means than ever to reach potential customers. The Internet has made aspects of marketing much simpler and cheaper. We can now literally reach over a billion people world-wide. For multinational companies, this is a good means to create a connection with the people in each country they operate in. The following will examine the website of Victoria's Secret, as well as the "size does matter" epidemic in the United States.
One of the things that the Victoria's Secret website does very well is provide potential consumers with opportunities for additional exposure. On the home screen, the banner on the top has several links including: "Catalogue Quick Order" "Sign Up For Email" "Customer Service" "Your Account" "Shopping Bag". The links to catalogue order and email are both direct ways of showing the customer some of the things you have to offer. Below this section are the categories of products, which include: Bras, Panties, Sleepwear, Clothing, Shoes, Swim, Beauty, and Sale. By having these sections, it makes it very easy for potential consumers to navigate the site and discover some of what the company has to offer.
Internet has certain limitations when it comes to sensory stimulus. We cannot smell things, we cannot taste them, and...
The ability to comprehend speech through listening may at first appear to be a simple task. When we consider the complex nature of speech perception, we find it is not so easy. It involves the acoustic cues being extracted from the signal. This signal then needs to be stored in the sensory memory and identified on to a map of linguistic structure. To understand this process we need to consider the stimulus presented and what factors play a part in how we perceive it. Considering the complexity and variation in the acoustic patterns produced by speech, we are reminded that while this process may appear effortless, our ability to recognize speech is the result of a complex speech perception system. While we can describe speech patterns in terms of frequency, we also need to look at the meanings these sounds convey when strung together into sentences, and the influence this meaning has on perception. Speech perception can be understood in terms of the interaction between top-down, knowledge based processing and bottom-up processing based on the incoming acoustic signal.
The sounds produced in speech are formed by patterns of pressure changes in vocal apparatus called the acoustic signal. The signal is created when the vocal apparatus changes pressure in the air that is released from the lungs. The vocal tract changes shape according to the movement of the articulators, including the...

...refers to cognition that is knowledge and perception that are acquired by a combination of the attitude object and related information from different sources. With reference to visiting Disneyland in Hong Kong it is a great place to visit and have a fun with the kids, where people are able to rest from common daily activities. The cognitive component towards Disneyland is what people experienced by visiting this place and what information they got from various sources (friends, ads). Affective component considers a person’s feelings and emotional response to an attitude object. It is mostly learnt during our daily live. This is the way as we feel. We may love the place as Disneyland. It gives joy, happiness and join the family. It could have a good emotion or feeling about it. Conation, the final component concerns how the consumer will behave with regard to attitude object. People will go and visit Disneyland in Hong Kong and spend time with the family there.

ASSIGNMENT TITLE: Scan three adverts from a magazine or newspaper and outline the
advertisement‘s effects on your affect, cognition and behaviour.
24TH MARCH 2014
Advertising plays a pivotal role in the lives of consumers. Advertising moulds the attitudes of
the person as well as of the society and they certainly influence behaviour of the customers.
The customer has to deal with a vast amount of information and make a best choice, conclude
and make vital decision (Jakstiene, Susniene and Narbutas, 2008). Jakstiene et al (2008, p50)
writes, “The main goal of advertising a certain product or service is to attract the customer’s
attention and analyse the impact of advertising on customer behaviour, which is determined
by a multitude of aspects, although the psychological cognitive, emotional and behavioural
ones play the most important role.” The paper below is any analysis of the effects
advertisement has on one’s affects, cognitions and behaviour.
According to Stangor (2004), Humans depend on the three capacities of affect, behavior, and
cognition, which work together to assist them construct productive social relations.
Psychologists defined cognition as the mental activity of processing information and using
CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR AND PERCEPTION
2.1 WHAT IS CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR?
It is necessary to understand consumer behaviour; this is based on the activities leading to the acquisition and use of goods or services, including decision-making processes that determine a purchase. In this process the consumer performs actions such as search, purchase, use and evaluation of products expected to be used to meet their needs (Solomon Michael, 2007).
The activities, processes and social relations to which reference has been made include various actions of the consumer: knowledge of a need, when you make a comparison between stores, the simple reasoning of information that are available in regard to the benefits and risks of the desired product, or seek advice from a friend about a new product. The purchase of a product includes experiences such as mental and physical stimulation, social changes, the more status and power. (Kollat David). Consumer behaviour is based in a social environment, its meaning that consumers should be considered in light of its relations with others.
In the process of purchase, consumers are seeking information about products, available alternatives and then choosing the most suitable option that meets their needs.
Consumer behaviour is used to sell easy and more goods, as can be determined by...
...Perception is the process by which organisms receives, selects, organizes, and interprets information to create a meaningful picture of the world.
Consumers perceive price in terms of both the actual amount to be sacrificed and the value to be gained. If a price is regarded as unfair, cheap, or expensive, purchase intentions of consumer will be greatly affected. Hence, consumer’s perception of product value about the hybrid car is bad then they’re not willingness to go a store or a service of Proton. Satisfaction-based, relationship, efficiency pricing is the pricing strategies that is used to enhance the perceive value.
A reference price is any price that consumers use as a basis for comparison in judging another price. External reference prices are prices supplied by a marketer as a means of influencing a consumer's price expectations. From our topic, regularly price of hybrid car of other brands is around RM140, 000 until RM160, 000. Proton set its hybrid car price is RM150, 000, the consumers might think that is plausible and assimilated. In contrast, internal reference prices are those learned or perceived over time by the consumer. It confined to a narrower range for some products than others and typically is lower than actual retail prices.
Proton can used the penetration pricing strategy instead of the skim pricing strategy...

Our research offers a study on consumers behavior who like to start their day with a cup or Karak (cooked tea with milk), or simply love to have it throughout the day, knowing that Karak is the second most consumed hot beverage in Qatar after Arabian coffee.
Across not only Qatar but the entire GCC, the consume of evaporated milk exceeded 60% according to Rainbow' s official website. In Qatar, Karak is more like a symbol of being a Qatari than a just a beverage, especially to young adult. some restaurants are famous for their Karak that consumers might travel for 1 hour distance just to have a taste of the famous Karak they have, some restaurants like Tea Time and Al-Noaimi Karak.
While there are currently so many companies offering evaporated milk, the key ingredient for Karak, in GCC, only three of those stand out, Rainbow, Tamween, and Marai.
