Papers On Marketing & Consumer Behavior Topics

Impulse Buying / Research Analysis : An 11 page paper describing a proposed research project on consumers’ views of point of purchase advertising. Marketing and advertising budgets have spiralled to the point that there are advertising messages literally at every turn, and marketers have discovered that the most effective target group is that which is already present in the store. Consumer advocates and budget analysts for years have admonished consumers to avoid impulse shopping at all costs, to always go into a grocery store with a list and resist all temptation to deviate from it. In today’s society, however, people are busier than ever before, and there have been indications that point of purchase advertising may actually be looked on more favorably by the consumer than other methods that have become so intrusive.

Marketing / A General Overview : An 8 page paper discussing general aspects and tools of marketing.

Market Evaluation : Whenever a business considers investing time and capital in new projects, there exists a need to evaluate the market for future trends and influencing variables to determine cost efficiency. Technology has become one of the major influences on the market system today, both as a characteristic that must be considered for a business and as an evolving market in its own right. The electronics market is influenced in a reciprocal manner with the information technology market and shares many of the same variables of cost consideration.

For all of these markets, the bottom line is cost efficiency and financial gain while providing a service and, or product. This 9 page paper examines some of the variables to be considered in maintaining cost efficiency in a changing market. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Markeva2.wps

Changes In Consumer Behavior & Their Implications for Marketers : A 33 page paper taking a general look at marketing and consumer behavior since the 1920s, when widespread use of electricity and economic prosperity gave rise to marketing in earnest.
