And then, as we’ve discussed, there are services. DEGREES OF CONSUMER INVOLVEMENT Durables and non-durables differ not only in their lifespan, but in what is called ‘consumer involvement’. The theory goes that durable goods demand and excite a higher level of involvement from consumers, who will do more research into their possible purchase options, and take more time over the purchase, because by definition their commitment to the product is going to be longer. You’ll have your fridge in your kitchen longer than you’ll have your yoghurt in the fridge.

There’s the benefit they’re after, right there: cheery and refreshed rooms with absolute minimum negative impact on their purse. Do you have a value proposition for them (a low-cost range of basic but appealing colours)? Another customer is looking for traditional hues and very high quality coverage to suit their painstakingly restored Georgian town house. Do you have a value proposition for them (a much wider range of subtler shade variations in a quality paint which is as close possible in look and feel to the coverings of 200 years ago)?

Lightbulbs, plasters, umbrellas all fall into this category, as would a particular food item that you suddenly discover you need, such as ketchup, stuffing mix, butter. An overall characteristic of convenience products is that they are relatively easily substituted. SHOPPING PRODUCTS So-called ‘shopping’ products aren’t bought as frequently as convenience products, so they do involve some degree of ‘research’ by the consumer, or sometimes just a bit of familiarisation with what’s available: it’s the active ‘shopping around’ element which gives these products their name.
