30 Different Views of What Causes Motivation Expectancy Theory (degree of pull) Expectancy Theory (degree of pull) Drive Theory (degree of push) Drive Theory (degree of push) Biological Vs. Learned Needs Focuses on Biological Needs that Produce Unpleasant States of Arousal, i.e. Hunger. Homeostasis: Behavior Which Tries to Reduce or Eliminate This Unpleasant State and Return to Balance. Behavior is Largely Pulled by Expectations of Achieving Desirable Outcomes (a Positive Outcome or Absence of Negative) - Pulled Toward the Outcome

31 Two Dimensions of Motivation Motivational Intensity or Strength: –The amount of push or pull that motivation exerts on an individual (e.g., amount of tension, consequences, immediacy). The Degree to Which a Person is Willing to Expend Energy to Reach One Goal as Opposed to Another. Motivational Direction: –Particular way a consumer attempts to reduce motivational tension (eg. how to become wealthy)

32 Motivational Direction: Goal Directed Behavior Positive –Approach e.g., Work out to look and feel healthy Negative –Avoidance e.g., Work out to avoid being stigmatized socially

33 Motivational Direction: Needs vs. Wants Wants The specific Way a Need is Satisfied, depends on Individual’s Unique History, Learning Experiences and Cultural Environment. Needs Needs are more fundamental than wants e.g., How to satisfy hunger? How to relieve boredom? How to get interest of sexually attractive person?

34 Motivational Direction Utilitarian Four Types of Needs Biogenic Psychogenic Hedonic

35 Marketers Tend to Focus on Psychogenic Needs Need for Achievement –Value personal accomplishment Need for Affiliation –Desire being in the company of other people Need for Power –Control one’s environment Need for Uniqueness –Desire to assert one’s individual identity –Examples of products focused on these needs?

36 Another Model of Needs: Maslow’s Hierarchy - Holds that Needs Evolve as Society or a Consumer Develops Physiological Safety Social Esteem Self Actualization

37 Values--Identify What is Good and Desirable Values are higher level motives that tell us how desirable a given goal is (e.g., beautify the world, comfortable life, self respect). Cultural values – values common to one’s culture (e.g., achievement, autonomy, interdependence) Consumption-specific values – values related to the process of buying (e.g., convenience, friendly service) Product-specific values – values related to a particular product (e.g., flexibility, speed, natural materials, creative)

38 POSITIONING Where is product positioned in the minds of target market with respect to other products? Head-on (Duracell vs. Energizer) Brand Dominance (Coke: the real thing) Product Differentiation (Jolt Cola) Technical Innovation (Gillette Mach 3) Lifestyle (any beer, soft drink aimed at you)

39 Types of Involvement Rational and emotional involvement Rational involvement would be devoid of any affect e.g. Choice of steam iron, the consumer would try to optimise a cost-benefit ration with no emotion or interest toward product category - pleasure is absent Emotional involvement might include hedonic pleasure eg. Choice of restaurant (Hirschman and Holbrook, 1982)
