This research uses the literature research method, the case study method, and the qualitative analysis method as research methods to analyze the influence of customer psychology and marketing psychology on business decision-making through four aspects: stock investment selection, necessity purchases, marketing, and discretionary expenditure. Meanwhile, the author chose the specific period of the epidemic because the social background caused people's psychological fluctuations, which have significant implications for business decisions. The delayed investment brought on by the pandemic affects aggregate supply and aggregate demand, and while the impact may take some time to be apparent, the magnitude of the impact depends on the scale and duration of the outbreak. Through analysis, enterprises need to put valuable customers at the center of business decisions as the basis of business decisions, so that businesses can focus on exploring ways to develop in unknown areas.
