1. Extended Decision-Making (Buying Behaviour)

1. Extended Decision-Making (Buying Behaviour)

  1. Extended Decision-Making occurs when consumers are buying a rather expensive product.
  2. You spend some time doing in-depth research about the product, before making your final purchase decision.
  3. Since it is a high-end product, the economic risk of buying it is much higher than if you would buy an average product.
  4. Simply put, you would not necessarily purchase the item on a daily basis.
  5. Therefore you spend more time evaluating the looks and the use of the product, and how you will feel about it after purchasing it.
  6. You might even ask your family and friends for advice, or read product reviews online before committing to investing.

2. Limited Decision-Making (Buying Behaviour)

2. Limited Decision-Making (Buying Behaviour)

  1. This essentially means that there is a limiting variety or availability of this product on the market.
  2. For example, you really fancy this pair of sunglasses with white frames and yellow-tinted lenses. However, there are only two brands out there that offer this style of sunglasses.
  3. Brand “X” offers their sunglasses for 195,-.
  4. But the other sunglasses available, by the brand “Z”, costs 365,-, which is far more expensive than those sold by brand “X”.
  5. Since you do not have a lot of options (and because you desperately want to own this stylish pair of sunglasses with yellow-tinted lenses), you decide to spend your money on brand “X” anyway (even though they are pretty expensive).

3. Habitual Buying Behavior

3. Habitual Buying Behavior

  1. Habitual Buying Behaviour plays a big role in our daily routine. We do not put a lot of thought or research into buying a product that is incredibly cheap and available in masses, at the same time.
  2. For instance, you frequently buy a new pair of socks. Either because you always misplace them or because you always end up having holes in them.
  3. What you do is, you continue buying the one pair of socks that costs the least amount of money, since you keep running out of socks. It has literally become a habit of yours.

4. Variety-Seeking Buying Behavior

4. Variety-Seeking Buying Behavior

  1. You display this type of purchase behaviour when there are visible differences between a product within the existing brands.
  2. You, as a consumer, might want to try out a similar product of various brands out of curiosity.
  3. To give you a concrete example, you may feel the urge to buy a plain, white t-shirt in slightly different designs at multiple stores.
  4. Just because you might not want to wear the exact same white t-shirt every day - you want to switch things up every now and then.
  5. The t-shirt is very affordable at all places, so buying 3 or 5 of them should not be a problem at all.

3 Tips on How to Cultivate a More Concious Buying Behaviour

3 Tips on How to Cultivate a More Concious Buying Behaviour

  1. Choose quality over quantity. A product should last years, instead of a few months or even weeks, so if you have to repurchase it after only a few uses, is buying the product really worth it?
  2. The cheapest price is rarely the fair one - So spend some time researching your investments, even the very small ones. Consider how a product is made, where it was made, who made it, if they were fairly paid for their work and how it impacts the environment.
  3. Support conscious brands using ethical fashion certifications, like B-Corp.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
