Abstract

The purpose of this minor thesis was to research factors that influence a person's decision to visit a country resort, and how this information may be used for marketing purposes. The theoretical framework for the collection and analysis of data was derived from a variety of sources relating to the fields of marketing and tourism. From these sources a questionnaire was constructed, with the aim of finding out from respondents what factors influenced their decision to visit a country resort. Consequently, having obtained this information, it was used to explore how it can be implemented as a marketing tool by using the model as a backdrop to 'how consumers make their decisions based on motivational factors that bear an influence upon the person's decision-making process'.
