Consumer attitudes

Consumer attitudes are a combination of beliefs, feelings and intentions related to a particular object or concept. In the present climate, marketers are particularly interested in consumer attitudes toward environmental and social issues, financial issues, health and wellbeing. Attitudes can be positive, negative or neutral and can differ according to context. Understanding consumer attitudes helps a business understand customers better and how they might influence or respond to those attitudes.
