         CONSUMER BUYING DECISION PROCESS
                      The consumer decision process is a road map of
consumer's minds that marketers and managers can use to help guide
product mix, communication and sales strategies. It consists of various
stages, a buyer passes through in making choices about which products and
services to buy.. The consumer buying process is a complex matter as many
internal and external factors have an impact on the buying decisions of the
consumer. There are five stages of the decision process which consumer or
prospective customer undergoes and each stage motivates the buyer to
purchase. Only one stage is concerned with actual purchasing.


CONSUMER DECISION PROCESS FOR
LG MUSIC SYSTEM

                          LG Music System is a consumer durable good and it
is a lifestyle product in both India and abroad. There are dozens of different
brands available to choose from, and even more types within those brands.
The stages through which a consumer passes while taking decision to
purchase LG Music System are as follows:

1) Problem recognition
2) Information search
3) Evaluation of alternatives
4) Purchase Decision
5) Post Purchase Behaviour


1. Problem recognition:
                       Problem recognition results when there is a difference
between one's desired state and one's actual state. Consumers are motivated
to address this discrepancy and therefore they commence the buying process.

                            How do you decide you want to buy a particular
product or service? It could be that your Music System stops working and
you now have to look for a new one, all those MP3s’and CD’s you
purchased you can no longer play! So you have a problem or a new need.
For high value items like a Music System or a car or other low frequency
purchased products this is the process we would take.


2) Information search:

                            So the problem is Music System no longer
works and we need to buy a new one. The solution is to go out and purchase
a new one, but which brand? Shall we buy the same brand as the one that
blew up? Or stay clear of that? Consumer often go on some form of
information search to help them through their purchase decision. Sources of
information could be family, friends, neighbours who may have the product
you have in mind, alternatively you may ask the sales people, or dealers, or
read specialist magazines etc. to help with their purchase decision. You may
even actually examine the product before you decide to purchase it.


Total set   Awareness set       Consideration set      Choice set           Decision
Sony          Sony               Sony                  LG
LG            LG                 LG                    Sony                       ?
Samsung       Panasonic          Samsung
Sanyo         Philips
Pioneer       Samsung
Philips
Kenwood
Panasonic



3) Evaluation of alternatives:

                             The consumer has to consider various alternatives
available before going to select a particular brand. Consumers allocate
attribute factors to certain products, almost like a point scoring system which
they work out in their mind over which brand to purchase. This means that
consumers know what features from the rivals will benefit them and they
attach different degrees of importance to each attribute. For example, sound
maybe better on the Sony product and price on the LG Music System , but
price is more important to some consumers.. Consumers usually have some
sort of brand preference with companies as they may have had a good
history with a particular brand or their friends may have had a reliable
history with one, but if the decision falls between the Sony Music System or
LG Music System then which one shall it be?

                              It could be that while evaluating different
purchase options he may be influenced more by LG Music System and will
take decision to buy that brand.

4) Purchase decision:

                   Once the alternatives have been evaluated, the consumer
is ready to make a purchase decision. In the evaluation stage, the consumer
forms preferences among the brands in the choice set. The consumer may
also form an intention to buy the most preferred brand. The marketing
organization must facilitate the consumer to act on their purchase intention.
Through the evaluation process discussed above consumers will reach their
final purchase decision and they reach the final process of going through the
purchase action. The Consumer who has taken decision to buy can purchase
a Music System either from the store, the web, or over the phone etc.
  5) Post Purchase Behaviour:

                 Once the consumer has purchased and used the Music
  System, they will evaluate their purchasing decision. They compare the
  product's performance with their expectations. If the Consumer is not
  satisfied with Music System he/she has purchased, he/she will experience
  post purchase dissatisfaction. If the Consumer is satisfied, he/she will tend to
  say good things about the brand to others. On the other hand, dissatisfied
  consumer may abandon the product.

              The Consumer goes through above explained stages while taking
  decision to purchase a LG Music System.
