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: Regensburg physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.

The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...

Cell biologists from the University of Konstanz shed light on a recent evolutionary process in the human immune system and publish their findings in the...

Im Focus: Transformation through Light

Laser physicists have taken snapshots of carbon molecules C₆₀ showing how they transform in intense infrared light

When carbon molecules C₆₀ are exposed to an intense infrared light, they change their ball-like structure to a more elongated version. This has now been...

Im Focus: Famous “sandpile model” shown to move like a traveling sand dune

Researchers at IST Austria find new property of important physical model. Results published in PNAS

The so-called Abelian sandpile model has been studied by scientists for more than 30 years to better understand a physical phenomenon called self-organized...

Im Focus: Cryo-force spectroscopy reveals the mechanical properties of DNA components

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a new method to examine the elasticity and binding properties of DNA molecules on a surface at extremely low temperatures. With a combination of cryo-force spectroscopy and computer simulations, they were able to show that DNA molecules behave like a chain of small coil springs. The researchers reported their findings in Nature Communications.

DNA is not only a popular research topic because it contains the blueprint for life – it can also be used to produce tiny components for technical applications.
