Description This unit explores contemporary consumer behaviour and how this knowledge can be useful in assisting marketing managers to enhance their decision-making in contemporary markets. To achieve this objective, the unit moves beyond basic consumer behaviour theory to understand how contemporary consumers behave across a wide variety of contexts, including commercial and not-for-profit markets. Where appropriate the unit explores various techniques of investigating consumer behaviour and developing a consumer centric approach. The unit also highlights how knowledge of consumer insights can appropriately be linked to various marketing practices so as to increase the likelihood of achieving marketing goals.
