Assessment of consumer behaviour issues

Order Description

The aim of this assessment is to encourage you to examine specific behaviours that international consumers engage in relation to a particular product, service or other

consumer offering (e.g. cosmetics and toiletries, hotels, mobile phones, world Disney, movie theatre, detergent, financial/health services).
You may also find it easier to focus on a particular brand.
Choose a brand and consumers of country X
First, choose a company or brand or consumer offering to focus your efforts. Then, select a country (except the UK) in which your chosen brand is currently marketed.
For example,Boots facial and body moisturizer (No. 7 Intense Beauty Serum) being marketed to consumers in Jordan. You should choose a brand and consumers with which

you are reasonably familiar or you are interested in. More importantly, make sure that you have access to relevant information about the brand and consumers of your

chosen country.

that are unique to the country’s consumers and the brand (consumer behavior in a specific country! use different models)

-the most relevant internal and external influences on the decision making process (e.g. motivation, personality, life style, perception, social/group/family

influences, specific culture-driven values, ethical issues, situational factors such as income, etc.)
-use different models
Once you have carried out an appropriate assessment of the potential consumption behaviours related to the brand, you should be able to focus your investigation on the

key issues.
