Consumer Decision Making Process


The consumer decision-making process ranges from simple to complex, and is influenced by various factors. It begins with the recognition of a need. It might be as simple as realizing there are no more vegetables left in the fridge!

 

It is followed by information search where a consumer starts to search for information from internal and external resources. Once consumer finds information and alternatives, he/she starts to evaluate them in the alternative evaluation step. After evaluation of alternatives a consumer makes a decisions regarding which product/service to purchase. After purchase the consumer has an experience using the product/service that is purchased.

 

All the questions like: what influences a consumer in a purchase situation? Why did consumer X purchase this TV? Was it for price or quality? Did consumer X ask his/her friends or family for help in his/her decision? are subject to the Consumer Decision Making process.
