FP Week 7

FP Week 7

Introduction

You will be required to research and write a 1,600- 2,000 word essay about consumer behavior.  The paper must include research from a minimum of 3 scholarly source (your textbook can count as one of these references).   The subject of the paper is to write an essay about the process consumers make when purchasing a product or service.   The textbook has many detailed information about this subject matter, and many chapters focused on certain aspects of this process.   This is a top level review of the process, but I want to include at least THREE concepts from the book (ie: How does culture affect the process or Do men and women have a different process or does the cost of the service matter in the decision making process – to name a few examples).

To summarize, your job is to write this paper explaining the concept by bringing in research and information that you have learned throughout this course.

Important Information:

1. Must be a minimum of 1,600 words, and no more than 2,000

2. Must be formatted in APA  (This includes citations, references, cover page, running head…etc)

3. You MUST have a minimum of three scholarly sources

If you have ANY questions, please let me know.

Good luck.
