Understanding Consumer Behaviour: The Four Factors | QuickBooks Canada (2023)

How Do Psychological Factors Play a Role in Consumer Behaviour?

There are four psychological factors that influence consumer behaviour: Motivation, perception, learning, and attitude or belief system. Motivation speaks to the internal needs of the consumer. Understanding how to motivate your customer is a powerful tool. The way your target customer perceives the world or learns about your product, whether online or in person, can also influence behaviour. Finally, belief systems have the ability to influence all of the above. For example, some people learn best visually. This explains why pictures and images are so important for marketing.

Each of the factors listed above can be tied back to ways a small business can leverage its storefront or website to increase the probability of a sale. Keep these factors in mind when designing your marking materials.
