Description

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content, which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

For consumer behavior courses.

This package includes MyLab.

 

Beyond consumer behavior: How buying habits shape identity

A #1 best-selling text for consumer behavior courses, Solomon’s Consumer Behavior: Buying, Having, and Being covers what happens before, during, and after the point of purchase. It investigates how having (or not having) certain products affects our lives; specifically, how these items influence how we feel about ourselves and each other, especially in the canon of social media and the digital age. In the 13th Edition, up-to-date content reflects major marketing trends and changes that impact the study of consumer behavior. Since we are all consumers, many of the topics have both professional and personal relevance to students. This makes it easy to apply the theory outside of the classroom and maintain an edge in the fluid and evolving field of consumer behavior.

Relevant research turns concepts into applications you can use today

Throughout the text, there are multiple examples of existing and ongoing research that marketers are challenged with today. The features below help students learn how this research can be utilized to make decisions, capitalize on opportunities, and more clearly connect the decisions companies made to the success or failure of the company.

·    Updated - Marketing Opportunity boxes highlight the fascinating ways in which organizations have capitalized on a marketing opportunity to generate large profits in a way that hasn’t been done before.

·    Updated - 4 End-of-Section Data Assignments include real data sets from market research company, GfK, and tie together concepts across the chapters in each section. These assignments ask students to work with these data sets to analyze consumer behavior and make strategic marketing decisions.

 

A conversational, lively writing style makes students want to actually read the book

·    Solomon is an active consumer behavior instructor and researcher who brings in current, relevant examples, and speaks to today’s students as he does in his classroom at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA.

·    By referencing the ways in which students are currently creating user generated content and reviews, this text offers realistic, and often humorous examples including the suggestion to rate his or her consumer behavior course highly on ratemyprofessor.com and recapping the latest Bachelor episodes online.

·    Solomon references brands that students know and love (e.g., L’Oreal Paris, KitKat, Lush, KonMari, etc.), which helps them to be engaged in reading about consumer behavior.

·    The text’s organization further enhances student learning. Chapter-Opening Objectives provide an overview of the key issues to be covered in the chapter. End-of-Chapter Summaries, organized around these objectives, help students study key issues and understand the material they’ve just read.
