How these Needs Fit within the Stages of the Consumer Behavior Model
Consumer Behavior model is a rather complicated matter to be discussed in the limited space of this essay, yet it is a set of philosophies, routines and customs that govern a buying decision of an individual based on his/her needs and external factors like society and environment (Hanna et al, 132).
Consumer behavior model comprises market segmentation or division of consumers based on characteristics like demographics, psychographics, consumption communities, cultural values, subcultures etc (Schiffman et al, 74). Consumer behavior model thus states that a company if it wants to sell effectively needs to know the customers’ needs about as much as we know the needs of our closed ones (and thus are able to satisfy them).
In light of the increasing interest in hedonic aspects of consumer behavior, it is clear that consumer taste plays a critical role in judgment and decision making, particularly for hedonic products and services. At the present time, however, our understanding of consumer aesthetic taste and its specific role for consumer behavior is limited. In this article, we review the literature from a variety of fields such as sociology, psychology, philosophy, and consumer behavior in order to develop a conceptual definition of consumer aesthetic taste. We then explore various issues related to taste and develop a conceptual framework for the relevance of expertise vs. taste in consumer decision-making. Finally, we present an agenda for future research on this important topic.

In conclusion, I would like to say that SpofoKnife despite its simplicity and innovation has its own market future and existing target audience. SpofoKnife is superior to regular spoon, fork and a knife in terms of saving space, while superior to various compact multi-purpose knifes (with Swiss army knife being the best representative) in terms discussed earlier in the paper. The knife meets existing consumer needs and whims and is expected to bring revenue to the company that markets them.
