Saved search note 1

Secondly, to recognize that the consumer is a reflexive, freethinking individual who brings with them a set of individual values and a personal social and cultural biography that will inform their relationship to the product and ultimately, their interpretation of marketing communications.

1. I do not intend to read this further because this source is a bit of far off from my topic.

2. This article does not address my research question because my research question is more about tourism and marketing.

3. I will need to explore more about strategy of marketing, because marketing strategy can help me to analysis some information for my paper.
