The Consumer Journal Report requires you to analyze the internal and external factors influencing the consumer decision-making process for a major purchase – e.g. a car or a holiday.
Your analysis MUST be based on reality, that is, you are required to research this topic with someone who has recently made such a decision. The assignment should be in report format.
Your analysis will integrate a number of elements covered in Lectures 7-10. It is important to be analytical and NOT descriptive, demonstrating an understanding of which theories were at play in this purchase situation.
