Subject Code: MKT301
Subject Name: Consumer Behaviour
Assessment Title: Consumer Profile Infographic
Length: A3 Page (Submit Via Turnitin)
Due Date: Week -6
For this assessment, students are required to choose a product of their choice. Once chosen, students will have to create a consumer profile infographic for the same product. Profiling your consumer gives you the opportunity to understand a range of key information about them - including their income level, location but more importantly buying behaviour. Researching your consumer to create a customer profile will help you to understand who they are, so you know how best to reach them from a marketing perspective. The profile needs to be supported by student’s understanding of the industry and current trends in industry. Please use my Athens IBIS world to access industry profile. This Customer profiling should clearly demonstrate a profile of existing customers of the product with following distinct segments.
• Demographics and role
• How they perceive your chosen product
• Self-concept and personality
• Motivational factors
• Loyalty status
• Current industry trends
You may choose to prepare this profile using Microsoft programs. If you chose to do so, please ensure to use A3 size paper. You may would like to use alternative free online infographics software. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge in a creative way.
