New economy = globalized, internet, automatization, technologies, information and empowering. Old economy = Manufacturing (try to achieve economies of scale/efficiency). Marketing tasks 3 Stages through which marketing practice might pass: Entrepreneurial marketing Most companies are started by individuals. They knock on every door to gain attention. (Can t afford an advertising budget). Formulated marketing The companies are gaining little successes. They employee sales persons, begin advertisement on TV and do some market research. Interpreneurial marketing The companies became large. The companies lack creativity. Their brand managers need to get out of the office, start living with their customers and visualize new ways to add value to their customers. In marketing there will be a constant tension between formulated side and creative side. Marketing is typically seen as creating, promoting and delivering goods and service to consumers and businesses. Marketers are skilled to stimulating demand. But that s to limited. They are responsible for demand management. Table page 6! Demand states + task of marketer. 10 types of entities in which marketers are involved: Goods Most important Services Hotels, barber, repair etc. Mostly you have a mix of goods with services. Experiences Haunted house, climbing mount everest, meet your idol etc. Events Olympics, Trance Energy etc. Persons Celeberties, proffesionals (such as lawyers etc.) Places Turkije, Amsterdam etc. Properties intangible rights. Stocks, bonds, estates etc. Organizations image of a company. Vb) Let s make things better. Information Schools, Encyclopedias, Internet, CD, books, software etc. Ideas Save the rainforest, say no to drugs etc. Marketers make many decisions such as new features for product, how many salespersons to hire, how much spend on advertisement, color of packing etc. vb) tabel blz 8. 4 Markets (page 8!!! For explanation): Consumer markets

2 Business markets Global markets Nonprofit and govermental market Marketing concepts and tools Marketing: - Social definition (Role of marketing in society, marketing delivers a higher standard of living). Marketing is a social process by which individuals and groups obtain what they need and want through creating, offering, and freely exchanging products and services of value with others. - Managerial definition (art of selling products, but selling is just a little task of marketing). Marketing is the process of planning and executing the conception, pricing, promotion and Distribution of ideas, goods and services to create exchanges that satisfy individual and organizational goals. Marketing management = the art and science of choosing target markets and getting, keeping and growing customers through creating, delivering and communicating superior customer value. Marketing core concepts: Target markets and segmentation Market segment = buyers differences based on demographic, psychographic and behavioural differences. Target market = Segment on which the marketer chooses to work. A marketer can t satisfy all in a market because not everyone likes the same drink etc. Figure 1.1 page 10! Marketplace, Marketspace and Metamarket Marketplace= physical (shop) Marketspace= Digital (internet) Metamarket = cluster of complementary products/services that are closely related in the minds of consumers but are spread across a diverse set of industries. Vb) page 10/11! Figure 1.2 page 10! You must know the 5 basic markets that are in that figure! Marketers and Prospects Marketer = someone seeking a response (attention, purchase, vote or donation) Prospect = from another party (the one that gives the response) WATCH IT: If they want to sell to each other, then they are both marketers. Needs, wants and demands Needs = basic human require ments. (food, air, water, education, social status, entertainment etc.) Wants = needs that are directed to specific objects that satisfy the need. Demands = wants for specific products backed by a ability to pay. Vb) Need: food Want: hamburger Demand: only the people that will and can buy one Marketers influence wants, NOT needs. Needs exist already. Product, offering and brand Value proposition = set of benefits they offer to customers to satisfy their needs. Offering = intagible value proposition that is made physical (combination of products, services, information and experiences). Brand = offering of a known source. Brand image = associations that come with a brand. Value and satisfaction An offering is succesful if it delivers value and satisfaction to the target buyer. Buyers choose the products that deliver the most value. Value increases with quality + service. Value decreases with price. Customer value triad = Value is seen in terms of quality, service and price (QSP). Value = ratio between what the customer gets and what he gives. (Benefits and costs). Beneftits: * Functional benefits * Emotional benefits

3 Costs: * Monetary costs * Time costs * Energy costs * psychic costs Value = Benefits/costs Formula page 11! Exchange and transaction Exchange = process of obtaining a desired product from someone by offering something in return. (Both be better off). 5 conditions for a exchange to exist: - At least 2 parties - Each party has something with value for the other party. - Each party is capable of communication and delivery. - Each party is free to accept or reject the exchange offer. - Each party believes it is appropriate or desirable to deal with the other party. Transaction = a trade of values between 2 or more parties. (Not only money!) Barter = transaction involves goods or services for other goods or services. Transfer = One way transaction. Vb) gifts, subsidies and charties etc. Marketers want behavioural response of a party. Vb) page 12! Figure page 13! Relationship and networks Relationship ma rketing = has the aim of building mutually satisfying long-term relations with key parties in order to earn and retian their business. Marketing network = consists of the company and its supporting stakeholders. With whom it has built mutually profitable business relationships. Marketing channels To reach the target market, 3 marketing channels are used: - Communication channels (reclame, , customer info etc.) - Distribution channels - Service channels (warehouses, banks, transportation etc. Transaction with potential buyers) Supply chain Supply chain = Channel from raw material to final product for final buyers. Competition Competition = all actual + potential rival offerings and substitutes that a buyer might consider. Vb) Figure page 14!! 4 levels of comp etition vb blz 14/15 erbij lezen: - Brand competition (similar products/services at same customers at same price) - Industry competition (all compnies with same product or product class) - Form competition (all companies that manufactur products with same services) - Generic competition (all compnies compete for the same consumer dollars, kunt ze maar 1 keer uitgeven). Marketing environment vb page 15! Task environment = immediate actors in production, distribution, promoting and offering. Broad environment = - Social/cultural environment - Technological - Demographic - Economic - Natural - Political-legal Marketing program Marketing program = (plan) consist of numerous decisions on the mix of marketing tools to use.

Managers concentrate on high production/low cost/mass-distribution. The people are more intrested in having the product than in the feautures. Vb) page 17. Product concept Consumers favot the products that offer the most quality, performance etc. Managers focus on improving product. Vb) page 18. No customer input and no competition information. Vb) laatste aliniea van dit stukje ZEER!!!! Selling concept Conusumer and businesses won t buy enough. The organization must undertake an aggressive selling and promotion effort. It s most aggressive with unsought products (producten die je niet zoekt). Vb) Stem scoren voor politieke partij, door flyers/shaking hands etc. Usefull at overcapacity.

Anticipative marketer = looks ahead what customers want in the near fututre. Creative marketer = Customers do not ask for it, but will enthousiast reageren.

6 HOOFDSTUK 3 Paragraaf NIET leren: The nature of high performance business Defining customer value and satisfaction Customers are value-maximizers, within the bounds of search costs and limited knowledge, mobility and income. Customers choose product with the highest perceived value. FIGURE PAGE 60. Kennen! CPV = Customer Perceived Value = difference between total customer value and total customer cost. But there can be more attributes that contribute to the decision, such as time to make the decision, friendships between companies etc. Satisfaction = a persons feeling of pleasure or disappointment resulting from comparing a products perceived performance (outcome) in relation to his/her expectations. Buyers form expectations by: friends, past buying experiences, marketers, competitors etc. TCS = total customer satisfaction. Example page 62! 2x! Key of high customer loyalty is delivering high customer value. Value proposition = the whole cluster of benefits the company promises to deliver (its more than the core positioning of the offering). Example: volvo core postioning promises safety. But that is not the total proposition, because they also give good servive, long-lasting car etc. Value-delivery system = all the experiences the customers will have on the way to obtaining and using the offering. Many companies lack in combi-ing brand promises with value proposition. Example: washes wither. Than it really has to wash whiter! FIGURE PAGE 64: tools for tracking and measuring customer satisfaction. A company has more parties. He must try to achieve the highest customer satisfaction but also a high satisfaction of other parties, such as stakeholders, employees etc. But customer satisfaction is very important nowadays, because people can spread bad words very fast! Delivering customer value and satisfaction In a high competitive ecfonomy you van only win by dreating and delivering superior value. This involves 5 capabilities: - Understanding customers - Creating cutomer value - Delivering customer value - Capturing customer value - Sustaining customer value Value chain = tool (from Porter) for identifying ways to create more customer value. FIGURE PAGE 70! Every part from the 9 parts is value creating. BIJ GESCHREVEN IN BOEK, KENNEN. Benchmark = estimate competitors costs and performance and compare with your own. Not only each department has to run well, but also the coordination between them! Core business processes: - Market sensing (= all activities are involved in gathering market intelligence and act on it) - New offering realization (= all activities are involved in researching, devoloping etc.) - Customer acquisition (= all activities are involved in defining target markets) - Customer relationship management (= all activities are involved in better individual customer relations) - Fulfillment management (= all activities are involved in receiving and approving orders, shipping on time and collecting payment) VMI = vendor-managed inventories = not to manage stocks but flows of stocks. Value-deliver network (=supply chain) EXAMPLES page 71/72 ECHT DOEN!! NOT YET DONE. Figure page 72. competition is between networks not companies. Attracting and retaining customers Working with partners: partner relationship management (PRM) Customer relationship management (CRM) = the process of managing detailed infromation about individual customers and carefully managing all the customers touchpoints with the aim of maximizing customer loyalty. The trick is not to satisfy customers, but to procuce delighted and loyal customers. Customer churn = It adding water to a leak bucket.

7 Steps to reduce the defection rate (= leaking bucket): 1) Company must define and measure its retention (= herrinering herhaligs) rate Example page 72 with /. 2) Company mu st dinstinguish the causes of customers attrition (=uitputting) and identify those that can be managed better. 3) Company needs to estimate how much profit it loses when it loses customers. Lifetime value = present value of the profit stream they would get, if the customer was not defected. Example page 73 with /. 4) Company needs to figure out how much it would cost to reduce the defection rate Do try to defection decreasing if cost < lost profit 5) Nothing beats to listening to customers. READ PAGE 73! Many business try to get new customers, but keeping the current ones is also important. Measure the customer satisfaction, because it is the key of customer retention (herhaling). Don t try to los de problemen op die je binnen kreeg van klachten, want slechts 4% dient klachten in. De overige 96% komt gewoon niet meer!

The aim of CRM is to produce high customer equity. Customer equity = the total of the discounted lifetime values of all of the firm s customers. The more loyal the customers, the higher the customer equity. 3 drivers of cutomers equity READ PAGE 76 ERBIJ, NOT YET DONE!!!: 1) value equity = the customers objective assessment of the utility of an offering based on perceptions of its benefits relative to cost. 2) brand equity = the customers subjective and intangible assessment of the brand above and beyond its objectively perceived value 3) relationship equity = the customers tendency to stick with the brand above and beyond objective and subjective assessment of its worth. FIGURE PAGE 76! + TEXT AROUND IT PAGE 76/77! 5 levels of investment in customer-relationship building: 1) basic marketing (salesperson simply sells product) 2) reacitve marketing (1+encourages customers to call he has question, problems etc.) 3) accountable marketing (salesperson phones customer to check if product meets expactations) 4) proactive marketing (salesperson contacts from time to time with suggestions about improved product uses or new products) 5) partnership marketing (company and its large customers interact all the time) FIGURE PAGE 77!

WAS TENTAMENVRAAG. 3 retention-building (herhalins) approaches: 1) adding financial benefits vb) frequency programs (FPs) and club marketing programs (people come closer to the organization). EXAMPLE PAGE 79! 2x 2) adding social benefits build social bonds with customers by individualizing and personalizing customer relationships FIGURE PAGE 80! 3) adding structural ties - create long term contracts with customers - charge lower prices to consumers who buy larger supplies - turn the product into a long-term service Example page 80 under the table and above the 3 points!

8 Customer profitability, company profitability, and total quality management 20% of the customers generate 80% of the companier profit. Bottum customer: pays full price and because he is small it costs the firm relative much to serve him Top customer: high discount and because he is big it costs the firm relative low to serve him Middlesize customer: best one, pays almost the full price and costs the firm little. Profitable customer = a person, household or company that over time yields a revenues stream that exceeds by an acceptable amount the companies cist stream of attracting, selling and serving that customer. Examples of CLV page 81 2x!!! Customer-product prifitability analysis: FIGURE PAGE 82! Read text under it! Customer profitability analysis (CPA) is best conducted with tools of ABC-costing! Figure page 83!!! Competitve advantage = a companies ability to perform in one or more ways that competitors cannot or will not match. Leveragable advantage = een voordeel die een onderneming als springplank kan gebruiken naar nieuwe voordelen. Example: microsoft used windows as springplank naar office. Any competitive advantage must be seen by customers as a customer advantage. Example page 83 with /. VERY!!!!! Customers don t expect average quality anymore. But expect high quality. Because of this: TQM = total quality management = an organizationwide approacht to continious imprving the quality of all the organizatios processes, products and services (Deming). ISO 9000 is a set of acceoted rules for describing quality. Quality = the totality of features and charecteristics of a product or service that bears the ability to satisfy stated or implied needs. Quality: 1) conformance (=overeenkomend met belofte) 2) performance (= grade) Mercedes is volgens 2 hoger dan toyota. Mercedes en toyota zijn gelijk volgens 1. TQM is the key to value creation and customer satisfaction. Marketing managers responsibilities (in a quality-centered firm): formulate strategies and policies to come to total quality they must deliver marketing quality alongside production quality

Establishing strategic business units (SBU) Business unit is a customer-satisfying process (marketing definition), NOT a goods-producing process (product definition). See figure page 93. This is because products are transient, needs endure forever. Target market definition = focus on product/service. Strategic market definition = focus on need.

Low market share (less then 1, see figure) Company needs to spend a lot of money to keep up in the fast growing market. (personel, equipment, personel etc.) - Stars Market leader in an high growth market. Not necessary positive funds! Company must spend money to defend from attackers and keep up with growth. - Cash cows Market leader with falling growth rate. Company does not have to spend money, because there are no attackers (to less growth) and there is no money needed to keep up with the growth, because there isn t any. Company has economies of scale and high profit margin. - Dogs Low market share and low-growth rate. Keep only up if you expect the market to become healthy again. In this model a good balance is needed between these 4. Unbalanced, when: to many dogs and question marks and to few stars and cash cows. 4 strategies for each SBU: - Build (for question marks, gain market share) - Hold (for cash cow) - Harvest (Bezuinig to increase short term cash flow vb. page 95 - for question marks and dogs) - Divest (Sell or quit business of the SBU - for question marks and dogs) SBU life cycle (only when succesful): Question mark star cash cow dog So it is good for a company to look at the movement in the matrix.

Not to narrow (to few info you will get) and not to broad (to much info you will get). How fast can your new innovation be copied by the competitor. 2) Develop the research plan You have to know the cost of the research. If research + expected profit < cost. Then you won t do the research or in a different way. Designing a research plan calls for decisions on: Data sources Researchers can gather primary data (freshly gathered info for a specific purpose or project), secondary data (already exsisting data that was collected for other purposes) or both. Firms start always with secondary data, if you can get your required info, then its cheaper then primary data. Intervieuws is a form very often used. Research approaches Primary data can be collected in 5 ways: - Oberservational research = Observe the relevant actors and settings. Vb) page 131!!! - Focus-group research = Figure 5.2! Gathering of 6 to 10 persons to tlak about a product/service etc. Watch out: The sample group is to small for coping to the whole market. Now a days: onlone focus groups. Page 133 for example. - Survey research = Firms take surveys. - Behavioural data = Customers leave traces of their purchasing behaviour.

For example the CD hurts de LP. - Accelerating pace of change Technologies grow faster and faster. - Unlimited opportunities for innovation Markets for VR (virtual reality), new medicins, cars etc. Figure page 172! - Varying R&D budgets Read page Increased regulation of technological change Products become more complex, so more and more will the safety of the customers be secured. Political-legal (law, politics, pressure groups, somethimes it gives new opportunities, example new law: recycling manditory, so the recycling industy will grow and have new opportunities) - Legislation regulating business 1) Protect companies from unfair competition 2) Protect customers from unfait businesses 3) Protect society from unbridled business behaviour Promotions can be forbidden (such as sigarets etc.) - Growth of special-interest groups Read page 175! Social-cultural (beliefs, values and norms) People absorb almost unconsciously a worldview that defines their relationships to themselves, to others etc READ PAGE 175/176/177 NOT YET DONE TENTAMENVRAAG: # Views of themselves # Views of others # Views of organizations # Views of society # Views of nature # Views of universe - High persistence of core cultural values - Existence of subcultures - Shifts of secondary culural values through time -

17 HOOFDSTUK 7 Paragraaf NIET leren: N.V.T. Influencing buyer behaviour Model of buyer behaviour FIGURE PAGE 184! Consumer buying behavior is influenced by: Cultural factors (culture, subculture, social class) Culture = the fundamental determinant of a persons wants and behaviour. You got values, perceptions etc. through your growing up. Subculture = more specific identification and socialization for their members. Culture: achievement, success, efficiency, freedom etc. Subculture: nationalities, religions, racial groups and geographic regions. Diversity marketing = marketing programs to serve a large subculture. EXAMPLE WHOLE PAGE 185! Social class = relatively homogeneous and enduring divisions in society, which are hierachical ordered and whose members share similar values, interests and behaviour. (based on income, education, occupation etc.) Example of classes, page 186 completely! Each class shows different product and brand preferences. Social factors - Reference groups Reference group = consists of all the groups that have a direct (face-to-face) or indirect influence on the persons attitudes or behaviour. 1) direct: Membership groups a. primary groups (continously and informal contacts: family, friends, neighbours and co-workers) b. secondary groups (less continious and formal contacts: proffesionals, religious, vakbond etc.) 2) indirect: a. Aspirational groups (= groups a person hopes to join) b. Dissociative groups (= those values or behaviour an individual rejects) Marketers try to identify all these groups. And try to influence the opinion leaders of these groups. Opinion leader = person in informal, product-related communications who offers advice or information abaut a specific product or product category, such as which of several brands is the best or how a particular product may be used. Cars: product + brand choice Furniture + clothing: brand choice Beer + cigarets: product choice EXAMPLE PAGE 187/188! - Family (= a primary reference group) 1) family of orientation (parents and siblings(=broers en zussen)) From parents you get: religion/politics/love/self-worth etc. 2) family of procreation (spouse(=partner) and childeren) Role of partner differs in social classes. Examples 3x page 189! - Social roles Role = consists of the activities a person is expected to perform in groups (family, clubs, orgs etc.) - Statutes Status = Each role carries a status. Manager has more status the a cleaner etc. Personal factors Buyers decisions are also influenced by personal charecteristics: - Age and stage in the life cycle You buy differnet things on different ages (baby food etc.)

18 Also you buy different in the different family life cycle stages (FIGURE PAGE 191!) - Occupation and economic circumstances Managers buy suits, builders buy steel shoes etc. Business air travel or economy class etc. - Lifestyle People from the same social class, occupation or subculture may lead different lifestyles. Lifestyle = a persons pattern of living in the world as expressed in activities, interests and opinions. It shows the WHOLE person interacting with his/her environment. Psychographics = the science of using psychology and demographics to better understand consumers. Example VALS segmentation FIGURE PAGE 192! READ PAGE 192/193 VERY IMPORTANT HOORT BIJ PLAATJE!! - Personality and self-concept Every one has personality characteristics that influence his or her buying behaviour. Personality = set of distinguishing human psychological traits (=karaktertrek) that lead to relatively consistent and enduring responses to environmental stimuli. Vb) self confidence, dominance, defensiveness etc. Brand personality = the specific mix of human traits that may be attributed to a practicular barnd. ROW PAGE 194 NOG DOEN!! + BIJ BEHORENDE TEXT PAGE 195! Nowadays firms try to develop brand personalities that will atrack people with the same selfconcept! But watch out because people have 3 differtent self-cocepts: 1) actual self concept (how you view yourself) 2) ideal self concept (how you would like to view) 3) other-self concept (how you think others see you) Psychological factors Buying behaviour is also influenced by: - Motivation Motive = a need that is sufficiently pressing to drive the person to act. 3 theories of human motivation: 1) Freud Psychological forces that are shaping peoples behaviour are largely unconscious and a person cant understand his/her own motivations fully. Laddering = a method for tracing a persons motivations from the stated instrumental ones to the more terminal ones. REST NOG DOEN: TENTAMENVRAAG, DEEL NOG NIET GEDAAN 2) Maslow FIGURE PAGE 196, TENTAMENVRAAG! VOLGORDE KENNEN!! Human needs are hierachical arranged. People try to statisfy the most important needs first! Pas als die need is bevredigd gaan ze de volgende bevredigen! 3) Herzberg Theory that distinguishes between: a. Dissatisfiers (= factors that cause dissatisfaction) b. Satisfiers (= factors that cause satisfaction) The absence of a. is not enough. Also b. has to be present to motivate a purchase. Sellers must eliminate a. and find the satisfiers or motivators. - Perception How the motivated person acts is influenced by his/her perception of the situation. Perception = the process by which an individual selects, organizes and interprets information inputs to create a meaningful picture of the world. This is different for everyone: Someone might find a salesperson aggressive and another one at the same time might find him helpful. 3 perceptual proccesses: 1) selective attention screening out of stimuli (you see very much ads a day, so you do not attend to all, that s impossible). So you have to do your best to get their attention: a. people notice more often stimuli for current needs

19 b. people notice more often stimuli that they anticipate (=verwachten) Example page 197! c. People notice more often stimuli whose deviations are large in relation to the normal size of the stimuli. Korting van 100 dollar zie je eerder als 1 van 5 dollar. You are also influenced by all in a sudden stimuli. So marketers can try that to. 2) selective distortion tendency to twist information into personal meanings and interpret info in a way that will fit our preconditions. Marketers cant do much about this. 3) selective retention people forget much they learn but will tend to retain info that supports our attitudes and beliefs. Because of this we are likely to remember good things mentioned about a product we like and we forget good points mentioned about competing products. Marketers use drama and repeating of messages because of this. - Learning Learning = changes in an individuals behaviour arising from experiences. Drive = strong internal stimulus impelling (=call for) action. Cue = minor stimuli that determines when, where and how a person responds. If you buy a computer from dell and you react good on it. Then you need a printer and will buy it from dell, because of your previous experience Generalization Discrimination = means that a person has learned to recognize differences in sets of similar stimuli and can adjust response accordingly. - Beliefs Belief = a descriptive thought that a person holds about something. Brand plays an important role!!! Example page 198 with /. - Attitudes Attitude = a persons ejnduring favorable or unfavorable evaluations, emotional feelings and action tendencies toward some object or idea. With this people put things in rooms of like/dislike. Change a attitude is different, so marketeres can better try to fit the product into the attitude. Exa mple page 199!! VERY!!! The buying decision process There are 5 roles in the buying decision: Initiator (= one that suggests the idea) Influencer (= one whose view or advice influence the decision) Decider (= one who decides what, how, where and wether to buy) Buyer (= one who actual purchases) User (= One who consumes or uses the product) Marketers have to decides on which group to target. So paint is mostly bought by man, but the decider is in most case the female! Consumer decision varies with type of buying decision, a thoothbrush is different than a car buying: FIGURE PAGE 201!! VERY IMPORTANT!!!: Complex buying 1) buyer develops beliefs about product 2) buyer develops attitudes about a product 3) buyer makes a toughtful choice vb) car The marketer must know the buyers 3 stages very well. Dissonance-reducing buyer Expensive, risky and infrequent. Habitual buying Vb) salt No evaluation, no proces as described in complex buying. Based on brand familarity instead of brand conviction. (meer van vaak gehoord dan ow die moet ik hebben want die is geweldig) After purchase, they often even evaluate the buying.

20 Marketere must fight with ads (familarity) and prices. They can link the product to a higer invlvement one. Examples VERY!!! PAGE 202!!! With /. Variety-seeking buying They buy the first time without evaluation and evaluate afterwards. Next time the choice is based on this. Stages of the buying decision process Metamediar (combine different product for 1 purchase, example: car, you also need insurrance, financing etc.) This products are on a metamarket. Example page 203!/204! Marketers can learn stages in the buying process by different methods: introspective method (= how would they themselves act) retrospective method (= interview a small number of purchasers, how they made the choice) prospective method (= locate customers who are plan to buy the product and they should speak aloud how they go to the process) prespective method (= let the customers to describe their ideal way to buy the product) Stages of the buying proces: FIGURE PAGE 204!!! Customers may skip one of these stages!! Or even reverse stages. Problem recognition Recognize the problem/need (internal or external sources). Marketers need to identify the circumstances that trigger a particular need (identify triggers and stimuli). Marketers need to make strategies that trigger consumer interest. Information search An aroused customer always goes to find more info. To levels of arousment: 1) heightened attention (vangt meer erover op) 2) active information search (actief zoeken) 4 sources of info: 1) personal (family, friends etc.) 2) commercial (ads, dealers etc.) 3) public (mass media, customer-rating orgs.) 4) experimental (handeling, examing, using product) 2 has a informing function, but the real evalution comes with 1!! FIGURE PAGE 205! SEE FIGURE FOR NEXT: Total set = all brands Awareness set = consumer only knows these brands Consideration set = brands that meet the initial buying criteria Choice set = more info gatherd, only a few brands are left good enough Marketers must try to get in all these sets, but also know the other in the choice set, to know who to compete with. Evaluation of alterntives Everyone evaluates different. Every evalution has: 1) Customers try to satisfy a need 2) Customer is looking for certain benefits from the product solution 3) Consumer sees each product as a bundle attributes Examples page 205 onderaan het rijtje van 4. Brand image is made of brand beliefs (= consumer developed, where each brand stands on each attribute) Example page 206! Read page + table! READ BULLETS PAGE 206/207 NOT YET DONE, WAS TENTAMENVRAAG! Purchase decision Figure page 207! 2 Factors intervence between purchase intention and the purchase decision: 1) attitudes of others 2) unanticipated situational factors (lose your job, other purchases become urgent etc.)
