Consumer-Brand Relationship

09 June 2019

Do you have a favourite brand? My study aims to increase our knowledge about the relationship between consumers and their preferred brands, offline and online. It seeks to explore the factors that consumers consider when they decide to purchase from brands. It also seeks to understand consumers' motives for their purchase decisions as well as their feelings and perceptions.


  • The brand is used and preferred more than other brands in a product category
  • The brand is used for at least five years
  • Video call can be conducted if NOT in Nottingham
