Download Werbe- und Konsumentenpsychologie (German Edition) by Georg Felser PDF

By Georg Felser

Wer behauptet, das Geschehen auf den Märkten und speziell in der Werbung sei »alles nur Psychologie«, braucht kaum Widerspruch zu fürchten. Die psychologischen Anteile im Marktgeschehen werden oft als die entscheidenden bezeichnet und diese wirken praktisch auf allen Ebenen: bei Strategieentscheidungen in Unternehmen, an der Börse genauso wie bei der Urlaubsplanung zuhause oder vor dem Regal im Supermarkt.

Daher spielen konsumpsychologische Erkenntnisse eine immer größere Rolle in der Forschung oder in der Marketing-Anwendung, oft unter Bezeichnungen wie Neuromarketing“, „Implicit advertising“ oder „Verhaltensökonomie“.

Mit diesem seit Jahren erfolgreichen Einführungsbuch halten Sie additionally die Grundlagen der Neuro- oder Verhaltensökonomie in Händen. Unser Konsumverhalten wird hierin aus der Perspektive unterschiedlicher psychologischer Disziplinen beleuchtet. Die vierte Auflage ist wieder um eine Vielzahl neuester Erkenntnisse erweitert worden. Wie auch in den Vorauflagen werden dabei die automatischen, nicht weiter kontrollierten und »impliziten« Anteile unseres Verhaltens besonders berücksichtigt.

Für Psychologen bietet das Buch eine konkurrenzlose Aufarbeitung psychologischen Wissens zur Wirkung von Werbung und ihrer Gestaltung auf die Konsumenten. Wirtschaftswissenschaftlern bietet dieses Buch eine wertvolle Einführung in die Regeln, denen das menschliche Verhalten folgt. Studierende der Fachrichtung Graphik/Design finden hier eine Übersicht über die Wirkung spezifischer Gestaltungsmittel.

Zum Autor:

Georg Felser ist Professor für Wirtschaftspsychologie an der Hochschule Harz in Wernigerode. Er hat bislang an verschiedenen anderen Hochschulen Werbe- und Konsumentenpsychologie gelehrt, so etwa an der Fachhochschule für Graphik und layout in Trier, der Frankfurt college of Finance and administration oder den Universitäten in Trier, Linz, Halle (Saale) und Hohenheim.

<Dozentenstimmen zur Vorauflage:

Sicher das beste deutschsprachige Buch über Konsumentenpsychologie. Es steht nicht nur „Psychologie“ drauf, es wird fundiert auf die psychologischen Grundlagen eingegangen und darauf aufgebaut. Insbesondere neuere Forschung wurde rezipiert.

Prof. Dr. Michaela Wänke, Universität Mannheim

Das Buch gefällt durch eine enge und einfallsreiche Verknüpfung allgemeiner psychologischer Theorien und Befunde mit Konsumentenverhalten und Werbung. Der textual content ist intestine verständlich, manchmal sogar witzig. Der Stil unterscheidet sich damit wohltuend von den üblichen Schachtelsätzen deutscher sozialwissenschaftlicher Lehrbücher. Trotz der Flüssigkeit der Sprache bleibt das Buch stets wissenschaftsbasiert.

Prof. Dr. Ullrich Günther, Universität Lüneburg

It argues that construction, sale, and atmosphere are the most important to realizing late-Georgian satirical prints. these kinds of prints have been, in the end, released in London and have been for this reason woven into the economic tradition of the nice Wen. due to this urban and its tradition, the actions of the various contributors concerned about reworking a unmarried satirical layout right into a saleable and commercially plausible item have been underpinned via a nexus of constructing, promoting, and intake. Neglecting anyone a part of this nexus does a disservice either to the late-Georgian satirical print, those so much liked items of British paintings, and to the tale in their late-Georgian apotheosis – a narrative that James Baker develops no longer in the course of the designs those items contained, yet fairly via these items and the designs they inside the making.
