Marketing: Edition 2

Real People, Real Decisions is the only text to introduce marketing from the perspective of real people who make real marketing decisions at leading companies every day. Marketing is about the flesh and blood people who need to make tough decisions about the best way to develop a new product, or about how to make a product so irresistible that it flies off store shelves. With this book, the authors show how marketing can come alive when practiced by real people who make real choices.

Imagine you are Dr Steve Perry, Commercial Director of Visa Europe the world’s leading electronic payment system and one of the top ten sponsors of the Olympics, Para Olympics and FIFA World Cup. Visa have developed V PAY which is the first trans European chip and pin payment system and the question facing Dr Steve Perry was, how does Visa Europe try to move European banks over to V PAY as the preferred payment card solution?

The key to marketing is understanding and satisfying consumer needs, thus a knowledge of consumer behavior is essential to any organization dealing with customers, users, or clients. This book promises to be a contemporary classic. It brings together an international set of scholars, many of whom are "household names", to examine the diverse approaches to consumer behavior topics.

The editors employ a micro to macro structure, dividing each topic into three parts: one reflecting foundational work, one focused on emerging trends, and one covering practical applications. Each part examines the relationship between consumer behaviour and motivation, including well-being, gender, social class, and more, and concludes with practitioner perspectives on the challenges and opportunities that come with understanding customers. Readers will gain insight into how drives that are constantly in flux relate to other aspects of human cognition and behavior, allowing them to reach customers successfully, and to meet their needs. With contributions from leading scholars, including Sidney Levy and Jagdish Sheth, this volume sets the standard as the most comprehensive, cutting-edge resource on the subject of consumer behavior.

Students of consumer behaviour and marketing will find this a useful exploration of a fast-moving field, fundamental to the welfare of companies, government, non-profits, and consumers. It will also benefit new and established academic researchers as well as practitioners who want to stay on top of current knowledge.
