Sales promotion is known for providing additional benefits to the consumers and these benefits may have an impact on the development of consumer-based brand equity. Although previous studies have reported a positive influence of sales promotion on brand equity, but the impact of sales promotion’s benefits (i.e., hedonic and utilitarian benefits) on brand equity is less understood. This study examined the possible influence of sales promotion’s hedonic and utilitarian benefits on four components of brand equity (i.e., brand awareness, brand association, perceived quality and brand loyalty). A model is proposed to show the relations between sales promotion’s benefits and component of brand equity. This study includes a sample of 265 consumers of fast-moving consumer goods from Madhya Pradesh state in India. A covariance based structure equation modelling technique was used for data analysis and interpretation. Research findings revealed that the utilitarian benefit of sales promotion has maximum impact on brand loyalty, while the hedonic benefit of sales promotion has maximum impact on brand association. It provides a way of utilizing the benefits of sales promotion to create and support brand equity. Hedonic benefits of sales promotion can be utilized to make consumers associated with the brand, while utilitarian benefits of sales promotion can be utilized to enhance a repeat purchase of the brand.

AbstractWhile prior research has examined the issue of sales promotion proneness, very little has examined proneness to non-monetary promotions, such as contests and premiums discovered in store. This study draws on a promotions benefits framework to examine the influence of shoppers’ desired benefits on their relative proneness to in-store monetary and non-monetary promotions. Computer-aided telephone interviewing (CATI) data gathered from 500 grocery shoppers are used. The findings show that s...

Abstract Consumer behavior, divided into utilitarian and hedonistic factors, forms the basis of many studies looking at the concept of brand equity and its dimensions. Based on a comparison between Turkey and UK respondents, this study focuses on the idea that the brand equity significantly differs according to the consumption types which, in turn, are affected by the brand equity dimensions. The survey for this study is conducted on 218 consumers over both countries between February and March 2...

Thirty years ago, Hirschman and Holbrook (1982) advocated greater attention to hedonic consumption and the myriad ways in which consumers seek pleasure and enjoyment. A thorough review finds that the topic has much appeal and that consumer research has made significant progress toward understanding some of its parameters. However, many questions remain unanswered, particularly with regard to understanding the sources of pleasure, the manner in which consumers seek it, and the ways in which consu...
