Telegraph Tesco brand 'severely compromised', say shoppers. The study of consumers helps firms and organisations improve their marketing strategies.

It is the study of individuals, groups, or organisations and the processes they use to select, secure, use, and dispose of products, services, experiences, or ideas to satisfy needs and the impacts that these processes have on the consumer and society Perner, Consumer loyalty cannot be fixed because they are constantly changing and consumers are correspondingly unpredictable in their behaviour. The shifting nature of the symbolism of consumer wants and needs makes it seem apparent to marketers that consumers do not know what they want, but only what they do not want.

Moreover, what is symbolic today may not be symbolic tomorrow or alternatively it may symbolize something that is unattractive. The task for marketers is to predict what will be a fashionable symbol tomorrow, and equally important, when tomorrow will be. Moreover, business competitors may copy or improve on a product or service but they still have to make the customers switch brands. Brands loyalty or resistance to switching can be based on lack of motivation to change from the existing brand, a genuine liking for an existing brand or the actual cost of switching.

Switching costs reflect the sunken investment that has to be sacrificed in order to switch from one brand to another. Switching costs will be lower for fast-moving consumer goods but clearly higher for durable consumer white goods. An existing base of loyal customers provides an enormous sustainable competitive advantage. It reduces the marketing costs of doing business since existing customers are relative easy to hold whereas getting and retaining new ones is more difficult.

The loyalty of existing customers represents a substantial entry barrier to would-be competitors. Excessive resources are required when entering a market in which existing customers must be cajoled away from an established brand with which they are well satisfied.

The profit potential for the tentative entrant is thus reduced. Furthermore, competition is strong and the costs of getting new customers are high. Customers that have been with a company for some length of time tend, on average, to spend more on each transaction, offer more opportunities for selling them other products and services and give better recommendations to their friends and colleagues than other customers.

Customer loyalty is considered to be an important driver of success and increased profitability. However, customer loyalty and customer retention need to be distinguished from one another.

Customer retention reflects only repeat purchase behaviour. Customer loyalty, however, is more to do with how customers feel about the firm whether they trust the firm, whether they actively want to do business with the firm and whether they will recommend the firm to others.

Customer loyalty is closely related to customer satisfaction. While retention can be obtained through discounts for repeat purchase and so on, getting high customer loyalty requires greater long-term investment. It involves emphasis on achieving excellent in the service activities that augment the basic product offering. In , an agreement was signed by Tesco to set up a premeditated series of joint ventures for the development of shopping malls in China.

This joint venture included three malls: Anshan, Fushan and Qinhuangdao Tesco, Furthermore, there have been promotion of free trading blocs by governments to benefit from globalisation Lynch, This has provided Tesco with a platform to expand its retail network across the EU.

Economic Economic factors are a matter of concern for Tesco since they impact directly on the buying behaviour of customers. As a result of this, the spending power of consumers is again on a steady rise as they are more confident about their current financial situation. However, there is still a lot of financial uncertainty meaning that consumers are likely to spend less on premium products, encompassing organics and ready prepared meals, which will adversely affect both sales value and margins Keynote, However, the positive aspect of recession is that the customers eat out less and eat more at home which provides opportunities for grocery retailers like Tesco to increase their output Guardian, It must be noted that food is the last thing that customers will cut back on.

The percentage of overall consumer spending on food has risen considerably over the years, as shown below Euromonitor, The ageing population is discouraging for the food retailers older people tend to eat less. They are less likely to travel to supermarkets to shop compared with the younger generation.

Although, internet literacy level drops over the age of 65 years within the population Turban et al. An increase in the demand for organic food has been accommodated by Tesco to reflect this change in demand.

Payment by cheques and cash at the checkout was first made possible by Tesco. Technological Technology is one of the key macro-environmental variables that have directly influenced the supply chain operation and processes of grocery and food retailers.
