Asian Consumers’ Attitudes Toward Promotion Preferences and Purchase Satisfaction

15.09.2008
Literatures on sales promotion mainly concentrates on the US market and non-export products; with focus on the providers, not the customers.

A study at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak looks into the relationship between various sales promotion techniques and customers purchase satisfaction to come up with an Asian perspective of sales promotions.

Researcher: Ernest Cyril de Run (Associate Professor, PhD)

Sales promotion is a growing issue for academics and practitioners. With globalisation, such tactics are used in different countries; yet there is an obvious lack of studies on the impact of national and local culture, as well as religion, on sales promotion activities.

Available literatures mainly concentrates on the US market and non-export products, with focus on the providers, i.e. how a marketing manager can get the most out of sales promotions and not how the consumers perceived such activities.

This study takes a look at the Asian consumer viewpoint of sales promotion techniques, with an emphasis of how their national and local culture, as well as religion, impact on sales promotion activities. The study focuses on respondents within the age of 25 to 45 from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, and Thailand to come up with an Asian perspective of sales promotions.

The primary objective is to investigate the relationship between various sales promotion techniques and customers purchase satisfaction. Further analysis will look into establishing the link between a customer’s national and cultural value and choice of sales promotion techniques; and whether differences in product type, age, occupation and religious affiliation/strength have an impact in the choice of sales promotion techniques.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
