Importance of Perceived Quality

What do Industry Experts Say?

“Perceived quality is a major driver of customer satisfaction”

“Perceived quality is the difference between a good and a great product.”

“Perceived quality usually has the biggest influence on the buying decision.”

“Perceived quality is critical to protect a brand from gaining a reputation for shoddy quality from which recovery is difficult and sometimes impossible.”

What Influences Perceived Quality?

Expectation – When touching a surface, we have high expectations of quality and question the product when it feels different.

Performance – We expect a new product to last for a while.

Experience – Usually we have some experience about the product that we are interested in and what we expect.

Features – We purchase a product because of specific features to meet our own needs.
