Online Consumer Behavior The Internet is transforming the way consumers interact with companies and with each other. Online commerce allows us to locate obscure products from around the world, and consumption communities provide forums for people to share opinions and product recommendations. The benefits are accompanied by potential problems, including the loss of privacy.

2007: The Year that Changed it All 1st Section: In this report, I prove that Apple’s iPhone has dominated all other smartphones in the years leading up to 2016. It is the epitome of what a globally recognized product can accomplish when considering how quickly it globalized and the image it provides for those who buy an iPhone. Owning one of these phones is not only a statement, it holds power and value that other smartphones simply cannot top. The company owns the stage when compared to other smartphones, and it’s journey to become the world’s second-largest mobile phone manufacturer is truly incredible. In fact, not only does it lead in technology and phone production, it’s become the largest publicly traded TNC in the world. Everything from its assets to its brand loyalty prove why it has expanded across the globe, and will continue to for many years to come. Apple Inc. has globally expanded by outsourcing nearly every level of its production and became one of the most successful and revolutionary TNC’s in the world, mainly due to the release of the infamous iPhone in 2007.

Consumer Culture Final Project This semester having to track all of my buying has been very helpful and eye opening. I was able to break down all of my buying into 8 categories; clothes, food (groceries), food (restaurants), entertainment, gas, gym, miscellaneous, and school. I was able to conclude that most of my purchases were paid with a debit card with the exception of my school payments. Most of my purchases were in store with the exception of a few purchases online. The majority of my purchases were wants and not necessities, and after doing this project throughout the semester I have a lot of unnecessary buying. This paper is a reflection of all of my buying.
As a country, Americans love to shop. Whether in malls, grocery stores, on the Internet, or elsewhere, the culture of buying is deeply ingrained in American culture. Fueled largely by advertising and the current credit system, America’s consumer culture is depleting our planet’s finite natural resources and polluting our environment. Consumerism has instilled in Americans an artificial, ongoing, and insatiable desire for mass-produced and marketed products, and the money with which to buy them, with little regard to their actual usefulness or necessity. This constant desire to acquire more possessions is poisoning the planet, as it can never be sated and thus results in the never-ending exploitation of the Earth’s natural resources, and
Apple Inc.’s has a loyal customer base because of their wide variety of products that are available to their customers. Apple Inc. constantly has to maintain commands among tech-savvy users at the high end of the market in order to maintain their high success rates. So far, Apple has won the contest for consumer loyalty. Even as Google Inc.’s Android widens its lead in the smartphone market, Apple’s iPhone poaches one in five of its customers from users of the rival operating system, according to a survey, released last week by Consumer Intelligence. Samsung, the top seller of Android handsets, only received 7% of its customers from Apple’s iOS (Schectman 2013). In a society that seems to be dependent on technology and social media, Apple is continuously growing with each existing and developing brands they offer to their customers, and with each new development there’s an excitement created by their customers causing lines at stores and preorders of products. In today’s constantly changing technological society Apple Inc. has to differentiate themselves and their products from other companies. Apple Inc. differentiates themselves by thinking differently, their management style, and
As the product becomes so much the trend in our society, people will seek the product more and refer to the product by the company’s name rather than the product code etc. Apple iPhone can be considered a brand of its own within the company.
I don’t think a real authentic community could ever be found on a virtual church site. According to Chapter 6: The Internet and Christian and Muslim Communities, “The internet has become one of the most important resources for information as well as misinformation, playing important roles as both shaper and reflection of the world’s culture.”(Peterson, 124). A distraught person seeking spiritual assistance online could receive false information about a religion and join a cult. The chapter also stated that “…such websites are plentiful, but they tend to be static and infrequently updated.”(Peterson, 130) From my own experiences a church community is rarely static unlike virtual churches.
In my opinion, I feel that consumers can get too much of a product. American culture of consumerism appears to be quite addictive. Shopping can become a drug for some. For example, with every new clearance rack at any given department store or buying multiple items because you think there
While the US consumer culture has many different goods that encapsulate its uniqueness, nothing quite represents the US than its trash. You are probably asking yourself at this point how a country’s waste can have any importance at all in its consumer culture. Waste is one output every company, no matter its size, must be concerned with. With the ever present climate problems our society faces, proper disposal of waste is a necessity. Luckily for companies in the US, they have found a way to capitalize through strategic marketing and planned obsolescence. Yet, unfortunately for consumers, they are often taken advantage of without knowledge of the occurrence. The true American view on consumerism, where products are bought with a short-term

Cultural Influences of Consumer Behavior Understanding consumer buying behavior entails marketing, relationships, and consumer behavior. Consumer behavior comprises all the consumer decisions and activities connected with the choosing, buying, using and disposing of goods and services. Marketers must pay very close attention to consumer behavior that occurs before the purchase and after the particular product has been used. Studying consumer habits is one of the steps in marketing search and analysis. In addition to other basic principles of consumer buying habits, marketers also need to study the decision and actions of real people. Until recent history the study of consumer behavior was focused on generalized consumer decisions. With
