Secondly, the decision may be disrupted due to unanticipated situations such as a sudden job loss or the closing of a retail store. Post-purchase behavior[ edit ] These stages are critical to retain customers.
In short, customers compare products with their expectations and are either satisfied or dissatisfied. This can then greatly affect the decision process for a similar purchase from the same company in the future,  mainly at the information search stage and evaluation of alternatives stage.
If customers are satisfied, this results in brand loyaltyand the information search and evaluation of alternative stages are often fast-tracked or skipped completely.
As a result, brand loyalty is the ultimate aim of many companies. On the basis of either being satisfied or dissatisfied, a customer will spread either positive or negative feedback about the product. At this stage, companies should carefully create positive post-purchase communication to engage the customers.

The encoding module includes determinants like "attributes of the brand", "environmental factors", "consumer's attributes", "attributes of the organization", and "attributes of the message". Other modules in the system include, consumer decoding, search and evaluation, decision, and consumption.
