In order to effectively undertake market research on customer behaviour; such as expected prices, how they react to certain methods of research and what kind of care do the customers expect after the purchase is made, it would be best to use observation along with focus groups. Surveys, if used, should be done face to face by door knocking as it is more convenient and has a high response rate. The survey should include quantitative and qualitative type’s questions in order to get a `broader view of the customers’ behaviour. Questions could include “What do you think affects your behaviour
Research methodology generally involves qualitative research or quantitative research, or a mixture of both. A quantitative research methodology involves the analysis of data collected from a large number of surveys or interviews. On the other hand, methodologies for qualitative research often involve using surveys or interviews to collect information about people — their attitudes, experiences and behaviors.
The appropriate research design methods are used in consumer habits analysis to understand which variables are the cause and which variables are the effect the aspects. This process is performed to determine the nature of the relationship between the causal variables, the effect to be predicted, and methods that are used (Perner, 2010). Businesses study how the consumers feel and think about options that are available about different products or brands which are consumer habits to enhance their market strategy (Perner, 2010). The market research is necessary to ensure that we provide the desires of the customer and not our desires for the customer (Perner, 2010). There are two research design methods to analyze consumer behavior which are the primary and secondary research methods (Perner, 2010). Primary research is called research at first hand because it is the research that is designed and conducted by you (Perner, 2010). Secondary research is the research that is driven from previous information which is considered to be a by- product of primary research (Perner, 2010). This type of research involves using information that other people have

Within research there are two categories of ways in which you can conduct your study and present you findings. A researcher can either use qualitative research or quantitative research. Qualitative research is more descriptive and narrative in nature than quantitative and uses words and classifications to tell about a situation or subject. Conversely, quantitative research is more concerned with numbers and statistics found. Many different types of research questions can be answered by quantitative research including “What is something?”, “Could there be a correlation between these phenomenon?”, or “Does A cause B to happen?”. A researcher attempting to answer these types of questions could use surveys or experiments to collect data. Then
Describe as well as compare and contrast the three types of descriptive research designs identifying the advantages and disadvantages of each.
* Qualitative marketing research - generally used for exploratory purposes - small number of respondents - not generalizable to the whole population - statistical significance and confidence not calculated - examples include focus groups, in-depth interviews, and projective techniques * Quantitative marketing research - generally used to draw conclusions - tests a specific hypothesis - uses random sampling techniques so as to infer from the sample to the population - involves a large number of respondents - examples include surveys and questionnaires. Techniques include choice modelling, maximum difference preference scaling, and covariance
The present study investigates men’s perception in buying decisions on branded shirts in Mumbai. The need to understand the emerging markets and consumers has become a big challenge for the corporate world especially in creating and managing a powerful brand.

During the early years after independence i.e. in 1950s, two wheelers were considered as a luxury good. In 1950s most of the people were dependent on agriculture for their earnings, sources of income were very few, due to which the disposable income with people was also low and only a few could afford two wheelers. Two wheelers were sometimes given as dowry in marriages and considered as a status symbol, since very few families were able to afford them. But now as the income levels have increased and people have easy access to credit and loan facilities, most people can a two wheeler. It is not considered as the luxury good anymore, it has rather become a necessity for some consumers who commute daily and look for economical options.
There are four basic assumptions that are made by economists taking into consideration a consumer’s behavior. When economists pursue their research they take into account the consumer’s behavior having clear preferences, a budget constraint, the determination of price, and rational behavior. Having these assumptions allows economists to know what the consumer is thinking while considering a good or service. Since every persons wants/needs are different, we can assume that different households have different preferences towards goods and services.
