In this individual assignment, you will be given an opportunity to critically analyse and understand the driving forces of perception, attitudes, motivation, group and individual differences, culture, family and lifestyle that influence consumer behaviour and consequently consumers’ purchasing decisions. Based on the analysis you conducted in Assessment 1, you are required to create a survey via Survey Monkey – a free online instrument. The sample size must include a minimum of 15 participants who recently purchased the product or service that you analysed in Assessment 1. The survey must comprise of 10 questions. You are then required to provide a 6-page summary of the key findings.
Please note that it is essential to seek “real” and valid participants who legitimately purchased the product or service.
You will need to use theories and concepts related to consumer behaviour discussed in weeks 5 to 8.
Group and individual differences Culture
For those students who have limited experience in using Survey Monkey as a survey and data collection tool, it is recommended to view the following online tutorials or visit our Academic Success Centre for further guidance and support.
Your analysis should follow a professional report structure.
