Effects Of Consumer Involvement:
Involvement with the product makes consumers process product-related information more readily. This information is processed thoroughly, hence, it is retained for a longtime. Because of this the consumers become emotionally high and tend to engage in extended problem solving and word- of-mouth communications.
These result into three categories: search for information, processing information, and information transmission. Customers who are highly involved tend to search for information and shop around more when compared with low involvement customers. For example, the customer who is highly involved with cars and thinks about buying it is likely to gather information. He sees for alternative models to figure the advantages and disadvantages of each. The more they are involved, the more they learn about the alternatives with in that category. To gather the information they use various sources.
