Consumer Behaviour 4e focuses on consumer needs, buying behaviour, and the art of customer satisfaction.

This perspective will inform academics in the marketing field as well as industry practitioners on how customised marketing strategies can be developed to effectively reach each consumer.

The significant impact of the growth of the millennial market segment, the use of digital technology, and access to shared experiences through social media and other online channels, is also explored.

Contemporary Management Principles (Paperback): T. Brevis, M. Vrba Contemporary Management Principles (Paperback)
T. Brevis, M. Vrba 2
R650 R519 Discovery Miles 5 190 Save R131 (20%) In stock

Major, ongoing change is the distinguishing characteristic of the business environment worldwide and it affects how contemporary organisations operate and deal with change. Organisations still need to do more with less. In addition, they need to provide for the needs of customers who, with more exposure to local and global markets, have higher expectations relating to the cost, quality, speed and innovation of the services and products they purchase from these organisations.

Due to this global need for managing change, ‘new’ forms of organisation are replacing the ‘old’ traditional bureaucracy and presenting managers with unique challenges. Thus managers of contemporary organisations need to take a holistic view of the changes in their environments and need to apply a completely new set of skills.

The approach towards contemporary management principles offered in this publication integrates discussions on vital managerial competencies and skills with information on traditional and essential managerial concepts that have been effective in the past and are still effectively used today in many business organisations.

The emphasis is on the vital role of human resources in the success of an organisation and the need for modern managers to self-actualise and embrace the practice of life-long learning.

The Villager - How Africans Consume Brands (Paperback): Feyi Olubodun The Villager - How Africans Consume Brands (Paperback)
Feyi Olubodun
R250 R200 Discovery Miles 2 000 Save R50 (20%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

When Feyi Olubodun, CEO of one of West Africa’s leading creative agencies, witnessed one too many cases of brands failing in the African marketplace he began to ask himself questions:
- Why did brands, both global and local, so often fail to connect with the African consumer?
- What was it about the African market that brand owners were not seeing?

He began to reflect on his own marketing experiences and out of this emerged the framework for The Villager.

In Feyi’s view, the African consumer begins his life’s journey by moving from the village, his rural dwelling, to the city, carrying with him not only his own dreams but also the dreams of his community. He is a highly aspirational consumer, motivated to succeed, and he becomes the economic portal for the rest of his community back home. But although he may be exposed to global influences and technology, his essential identity remains largely intact. This is why Feyi calls the African consumer a Villager. The Village is no longer a physical space; it is a psychological construct that defines him and the filter through which he engages with and consumes brands.

In developing his construct, Feyi posits that if you wish to engage successfully in a market you may not understand, you must have the right ‘lenses’ to view a people. He believes the secret lies in applying these lenses at the confluence of commerce, culture and consumer. Data is not enough to understand the vagaries of a particular market. Drawing on his wide experience and wealth of astute observations, he provides a highly readable and indispensable guide to the mindset of the African consumer today, yet it is true to say that his insights apply, albeit in a more nuanced way, to consumer behaviour across the globe.

The Villager is essential reading for brand owners wishing to conquer new markets.

4. Did we get there?

In addressing these questions, the book covers topics such as:

  • analysis of the customer, competitor and market
  • competitive market strategies
  • refocusing and leveraging the business
  • sustainable competitive advantage
  • going global and selecting strategies for the way forward

Written with the undergraduate student in mind, Strategic Marketing offers a comprehensive view of the current developments and challenges facing the marketing world, and shows how an effective strategic basis is a valuable tool for addressing these challenges and providing strategic direction to the organisation. In this new edition two new chapters on branding and electronic marketing strategies have been included, making this an essential guide to contemporary strategic marketing.

Retail has always been a dynamic industry but right now it is going through an unprecedented pace of change. Seismic economic shifts and breath-taking technological advances are changing the shopping experience faster than most retailers are able to react.

And, as if that isn't enough to contend with, there is the multi-channel reality to get to grips with too. Any retailer that wants to stay in the game, let alone ahead of it, has to think in an entirely different way. Get it wrong, or move too slowly, and the customer will be lost forever. They'll already be onto the next big thing. Andrew Jennings is a global retail executive with four decades of leadership experience at some of the world's top stores. In his first book, Almost Is Not Good Enough, he shares his secrets on how retailers can thrive in this dynamic environment. Almost Is Not Good Enough is the up-to-date guide anyone involved with modern retail cannot afford to miss.
