This book discusses key topics from the fields of social and consumer psychology. Important questions are addressed in the volume, such as:
• What impact does advertising have on consumer behavior? What causes this impact?
• What are the psychological processes responsible for the effectiveness of advertising
• How do consumers make sense of advertising messages?
• What messages “get across” and when and why?
This is the first book to offer a comprehensive and state-of-the-art overview of psychological findings on the impact of advertising, and to discuss this research in the context of recent developments in the fields of social and consumer psychology. It presents and discusses results of both classic and contemporary studies in an engaging style that avoids highly technical language.
The authors have included a glossary of frequently used concepts which assists student comprehension, making it a unique and invaluable volume for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers and lecturers in social psychology, marketing and communications. It is also a useful resource for professionals.
Bob M. Fennis works as a Professor in Consumer Behavior at the Department of Marketing at Groningen University.

His research focuses, and non-conscious influences on consumer goal pursuit and purchase behavior.
Wolfgang Strobe is Professor of Social Psychology at Utrecht University. He is a former president of the European Association of Social Psychology, a fellow of numerous psychological societies (e.g. BPS, APS) and co-editor (with Miles Hewstone) of the European Review of Social Psychology. One of his major research interests is strategies of attitude and behavior change, and he has published widely on this topic.
“This book is extremely well-written. The authors have done an outstanding job of explaining and summarizing complex topics in a manner that advanced undergraduates and graduate students can understand and appreciate. The book is thorough, accurate and scientifically grounded and is the most sophisticatedand advanced summary of the host of psychological processes that influence advertising effectiveness.”

“Online Consumer Behavior: Theory and Research in Social Media, Advertising, and e-Tail is an important book brimming with compelling insights into consumer’s use of social media, virtual worlds, online games, online shopping, and more. These studies address a great blend of consumer issues like consumer activism, identity performance, and privacy issues, as well as marketing management implications related to political campaigning, online art in the ever-changing world of the internet, this is it.”
- Russell Belk, Schulich School of Business, York University
“It’s impossible to think about consumers nowadays without considering online behavior. But when, how, and why things like social media and electronic commerce impact what people do is less understood. This book shines an important light on these new and emerging areas.”
- Jonah Berger, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
“Today, consumers purchase products and services in brick and mortar stores, through online Web sites as well as other venues. They share information readily and instantaneously via multiple social media outlets. Consequently, in many respects, researchers have had to rethink how to study consumers’ behavior. Indeed, one of the effects of the World Wide Web is to make available to consumers throughout the world products and services any time of the day and night. It is important that we have this volume not only to raise critical research questions but also to begin suggesting solutions and to gain understanding of this phenomenon. This timely book is an essential reference for helping us understand the implications of online consumer behavior.”
- From the Foreword by Kent B. Monore, J.M. Jones Distinguished Professor of Marketing Emeritus, University of Illinois.
As the management guru Peter Drucker said, “Marketing is so basic that it can’t be considered as a separate function on a par with others such as manufacturing or personnel. It is a central dimension of the business. It is the whole business seen from the customer’s point of view.”
Marketing does not have the status of a profession with standardized professional qualifications such as those that distinguish law, medicine, and even accountancy. In most companies, marketing is not a board-level function, such as finance and sometimes human resources. Nevertheless, I confidently predict that marketing will be perceived as a full profession within the next 30 years, with established professional qualifications and higher status, from the traditional west to the rising countries of Asia, South America, and Africa.
The format of the dictionary is by subject-based alphabetical entries, with mini essays on how they might be used. There are also appendices which chart the history and development of marketing, which provide web resources of brands, advertising campaigns, and slogans, and which provide web resources for further study. as with markets, some segments merit more attention than others.
It is a good time for students to be thinking of marketing as a profession.
I have tried, in compiling this Dictionary of Marketing, to reflect the crossroads that marketing has reached, and the tensions within it, as well as its substantial achievements, influence, and possibilities. I have given much space to the new techniques of marketing in this age of the World Wide Web and information-rich age, without neglecting the tried and tested techniques, models, and assumptions of classic marketing which have served many generations well. All of the related fields which have influenced on marketing are explained instead of giving just definitions.
