Outcome: Low-Involvement vs. High-Involvement Decisions

What you’ll learn to do: explain the different buying processes for low-involvement and high-involvement decisions

In our discussion of the consumer decision process, we noted that not all purchasing decisions go through all six stages of the process. Some consumer decisions are quick and easy, requiring little if any focused attention. Others can be long, involved, and tough.
