Question and answer
Why should marketers be aware of consumers' cognitive consistency and cognitive dissonance? How can dissonance be reduced? Use the postpurchase behavior of a customer as an example
Consumers expect their business dealings to have satisfactory resolutions. Businesses must provide good customer service and products to fulfill their customers' requirements. [ [ Good customer service relies on well-trained and helpful staff willing to assist and advise customers, along with reliable products and services. ] ]

Why should marketers be aware of consumers' cognitive consistency and cognitive dissonance?
Weegy: Six Stages to the Consumer Buying Decision Process (For complex decisions). Actual purchasing is only one stage of the process. Not all decision processes lead to a purchase. [ All consumer decisions do not always include all 6 stages, determined by the degree of complexity...discussed next. The 6 stages are: Problem Recognition(awareness of need)- difference between the desired state and the actual condition. Deficit in assortment of products. Hunger- Food.

I.E., see a commercial for a new pair of shoes, stimulates your recognition that you need a new pair of shoes. Information search- Internal search, memory. External search if you need more information. Friends and relatives (word of mouth). Marketer dominated sources; comparison shopping; public sources etc. A successful information search leaves a buyer with possible alternatives, the evoked set. Hungry, want to go out and eat, evoked set is chinese food indian food burger king klondike kates etc Evaluation of Alternatives- need to establish criteria for evaluation, features the buyer wants or does not want. Rank/weight alternatives or resume search. May decide that you want to eat something spicy, indian gets highest rank etc. If not satisfied with your choice then return to the search phase. Can you think of another restaurant? Look in the yellow pages etc. Information from different sources may be treated differently. Marketers try to influence by "framing" alternatives. Purchase decision- Choose buying alternative, includes product, package, store, method of purchase etc. Purchase- May differ from decision, time lapse between 4 & 5, product availability. Post-Purchase Evaluation- outcome: Satisfaction or Dissatisfaction. Cognitive Dissonance, have you made the right decision. ... (More)
