Marketing guru Jagdish Sheth & Devendra Chawla discuss why companies in India are kidding themselves

The Economic Times of India  online

2016-09-07

One of the big lessons we've learned is we've lost control of the brand in the social media age. Consumers influence the brand and even marketers don't control but merely influence the brand. And yet the marketer's job continues to be more relevant and increasingly complex, since he still has to decode what the consumer really feels. In your opinion who controls the brand?

Developing a model of antecedents to consumers' perceptions and evaluations of price unfairness

Journal of Business Research

2009 Drawing on previous research in pricing, we propose three broad antecedents to perceptions of price unfairness. Consumers perceive price unfairness when (1) they feel that the firm is making excessive profits, (2) they are not able to understand the pricing structure applied, and (3) they sense the firm is acting in an immoral or unethical manner. Survey data were collected from 969 consumers to understand their perceptions of price unfairness. In the survey, respondents were asked to provide their perceptions of pricing practices for fifteen products or services. A content analysis of consumers' comments confirms a wide array of drivers of price unfairness discussed by researchers and uncovers a few under-researched antecedents.

A Generic Concept of Customer Behavior

Journal of Customer Behaviour

2002 In recent years radical changes have stimulated a debate about the scope and nature of customer behaviour. In developing a conceptual model of this phenomenon three fundamental roles are distinguished – the customer as user, payer and buyer. In the author's view a conceptual framework based on role specialisation makes it possible to transcend and integrate at least six different disparate traditions of research and theory discovered or advocated in different domains of customer understanding. The model also suggest, future opportunities for research in new and unexplored domains of customer behaviour
