The popular CONSUMER BEHAVIOR draws key concepts from marketing, psychology, sociology, and anthropology to present a strong foundation and practical focus on real-world applications for today's global business environment. Integrating new examples and cases, the seventh edition incorporates cutting-edge research and current business practices, including coverage of social media influences, increased consumer power, and emerging neuroscience findings. This edition increases its emphasis on social responsibility and ethics in marketing, examining both the dark side and constructive possibilities. Students also examine controversies in consumer decision-making involving money, goals, emotions, charity, health, materialism, and sustainability.

  • ONLINE EXERCISES INTERACT WITH REAL ADVERTISEMENTS, CONSUMER DATA, AND MARKETING STRATEGIES. As students work extensively with today’s ads, data and marketing, they are able to relate chapter concepts to concrete experiences from their own lives. They also explore how chapter concepts can be used in the current workplace.
  • EXHIBITS EMPHASIZE SPECIFIC TRENDS. Illustrations and graphics throughout visually demonstrate applications of consumer behavior concepts in both U.S. and international marketing situations.
  • MANY NEWLY-PROMINENT CONSUMER BEHAVIOR THEMES RECEIVE SPECIAL ATTENTION. Chapter 1 previews hot topics, such as financial decisions and money management, obesity, self-control, materialism, privacy and transparency, and social media marketing. New key terms, such as ethical sourcing and contagion, highlight the growing influence of particular aspects of consumer behavior.
  • DETAILED CONCEPTUAL MODELS CLARIFY KEY TOPICS IN EACH CHAPTER. These models help students understand how the chapter’s key topics relate to one another and how the topics connect to coverage in other chapters. This understanding provides a valuable roadmap to your course.
  • MARKETING IMPLICATION SECTIONS DEMONSTRATE HOW CONSUMER BEHAVIOR CONCEPTS APPLY TO THE PRACTICE OF MARKETING. Students examine essential functions, such as market segmentation, target market selection, positioning, and decisions on promotion, price, product, and place. Many of these features focus on international marketing, which helps students gain the broader perspective needed in today’s global economy.
  • DISCUSSION QUESTIONS EXTEND YOUR STUDENTS’ OPPORTUNITIES TO APPLY WHAT THEY’VE LEARNED. These meaningful questions at the end of every chapter encourage students to recall, analyze, and dig deeper into what they have learned as they apply the chapter’s concepts to real-world marketing situations.
