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.

The building blocks of matter in our universe were formed in the first 10 microseconds of its existence, according to the currently accepted scientific picture. After the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago, matter consisted mainly of quarks and gluons, two types of elementary particles whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interaction. In the early universe, these particles moved (nearly) freely in a quark-gluon plasma.

Then, in a phase transition, they combined and formed hadrons, among them the building blocks of atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons. In the current issue of...
Thin-film solar cells made of crystalline silicon are inexpensive and achieve efficiencies of a good 14 percent. However, they could do even better if their shiny surfaces reflected less light. A team led by Prof. Christiane Becker from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) has now patented a sophisticated new solution to this problem.
"It is not enough simply to bring more light into the cell," says Christiane Becker. Such surface structures can even ultimately reduce the efficiency by...
A study in the journal Bulletin of Marine Science describes a new, blood-red species of octocoral found in Panama. The species in the genus Thesea was discovered in the threatened low-light reef environment on Hannibal Bank, 60 kilometers off mainland Pacific Panama, by researchers at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama (STRI) and the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) at the University of Costa Rica.
Scientists established the new species, Thesea dalioi, by comparing its physical traits, such as branch thickness and the bright red colony color, with the...
