This book analyzes the impact of the digital economy on customer satisfaction, shopping experience, resistance to change, script theory, and loyalty. The model introduced assumes that online markets have led to a redefinition of the concepts of loyalty and shopping scripts as a way to reduce customers cognitive effort, by optimizing purchase time and increasing the speed and satisfaction of the shopping experience. It describes the utility function of the script by retaining customer loyalty and making the customer more reluctant to abandon his regular supplier. It also explores the difficulty faced by the higher churn rate on the Internet and the minimization of search costs, by integrating more functionality to achieve the ultimate goal of behavioral and cognitive loyalty. The authors provide an analysis in a digital view of the economic theory of switching costs and the resulting lock-in mechanisms which, in a classical economy, are often a barrier to disloyalty. It is a useful and effective tool for online businesses, their main managerial and strategic implications, and the adaptability to existing contexts.

Radical Consumption:Shopping For Change In Contemporary Culture Jo Littler
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1st, De Montfort University Leicester, course: Marketing Management, language: English, abstract: Technological advancements such as the introduction of Web 2.0 has led to changes in consumer shopping behaviour; this has empowered consumers, where brand communication with consumers is no longer one way. Consumers have mass amounts of information valuable for decision-making easily accessible, and are continually incorporating the use of reviews into their decision-making processes, especially with high involvement purchases. With car purchases arguably one of the most expensive purchases made in a consumers lifetime; a focus on this purchase decision-making process has been taken. Subsequent to secondary data analysis and literature evaluation, a research problem was identified and objectives were devised. The research problem was to determine the effects and uses of car reviews to consumers. Objectives consisted of investigating: whether potential buyers use car reviews; what stage of the buyer decision-making process are car reviews most influential; what type of car reviews are used; and which type of car review is most trusted. With the consideration of the research problem and objectives, methodology was constructed. An appropriate sampling method and frame was chosen given the current resources and time-scale available. In-depth interviews were used as a data collection method to gain insight into consumer use of car reviews. Moreover online questionnaires were used to gain numerical data to enable statistical analysis and conclusions. Primary data analysis and evaluation was carried out with the consideration of academic theories and frameworks to enhance conclusions and findings. It was revealed that the majority of consumers do make use of car reviews during a car purchase process; with consumers having a preference to the use of Autotrader, Top Gear or have no preference between car review sources. Car reviews were more influential in pre-purchase stages; where it was found equally as influential in the information search stage as the evaluation of alternatives stage. Personal/consumer car reviews were used and trusted the most, independent car review companies reviews were 2nd most used and trusted, and car companies were the least used and trusted. It was found that personal car reviews were the most influential to consumers.
Masters Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,0, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, language: English, abstract: The digital revolution has led to undisputable and irreversible changes in the way we experience everyday life. This applies especially to our shopping experiences. With the increasing number of sales channels and omnipresent, easy-to-reach information, people have grown to be the best informed customers who have ever existed. To accommodate these changes in the business context, companies have to change their traditional push-based, brand-centric view to one recognizing and catering to an economy of connected experiences that are equally owned by company and customer. This integrated brand experience is referred to as omnichannel experience. Omnichannel marketing means that companies now need to provide a seamless shopping experience across channels, allowing their customers to switch between devices and the physical preference whenever and however they like. This work raised the hypothesis that today, many premium fashion companies are still struggling to offer seamless and engaging omnichannel experiences, because they lack a holistic measurement framework including future-oriented KPIs - due to legacy systems and departments silo perspectives. The contribution to this article is twofold. First, it consists of a review of existing literature on the subject. Second, to leverage the significance and implication of this current topic, interviews with seven leading industry experts were conducted. The gained insights were interwoven with the thesis literature review and support the works findings and statements.
