An Analysis into Consumer Behaviour towards Telecom Products and Services in India (2012)
Consumer behaviour is one of the most important areas that is given higher level of attention by companies all across the world. This is because, by understanding consumer behaviour, companies try to develop their products and services that best suits the consumers on the basis of their buying behaviour identified in their purchase process. The concept of consumer behaviour in the existing literature is defined as the behaviour shown by consumer while making their purchase decisions.
It basically involves decisions concerning the product that should be purchased in order to fulfil their needs and thereafter, making decisions concerning its dispose off. Understanding consumer behaviour is considered as a source of competitive advantage to firms because it helps them in creating products and services that are likely to achieve success in the market. Consumer behaviour is considered as the starting point in relation to strategy creation.
It is not only important to identify the customer knowledge about the products or services offerings, but it is also essential to make an understanding of the areas where consumer lacks knowledge about the company’s offerings, as this would allow the company to identify various channels of communication through which the knowledge base of consumers can be improved about the company’s products and services and better growth can finally be achieved.
