Aykut Özüak, İsmail Keskin

Preference cards used in the study were applied to 201 people. People were asked to put in order preference cards by coding as “1” the one they prefer the most  toward they prefer the least, and  method of diagnosis profile was used. 

Kendall’s Tau value stating representation power of the model was identified as 0.974 and Pearson's R, as 0.993. At the end of the study, it was seen that the factors affecting red meat preferences and purchasing behaviors of the people living in Konya were purchasing place (46.5%),  sort of meat (17.7%),  purchasing way (13.0%),  fat rate of the meat  purchased (12.9%) and, finally, meat price. 

As a result, it was expressed that conjoint analysis would help about which changes businesses could make in their products or services, which points they  had to be dealt with product development studies, and in what direction the existing and potential customers in market could react.
