In recent years, many business-to-business (B2B) component supplier (CS) firms have added branding to their marketing toolbox. By extending the logic of ingredient branding to B2B components, they aim to create “pull” from B2B end customers by building a strong CS brand image among their customers’ customers. In contrast with the established “push”...
Article
We assess attenuating and augmenting effects of brand commitment on consumer responses when product recalls occur. Consistent with our theorization, results from a laboratory experiment and an event study show that high levels of brand commitment attenuate negative consumer responses in low-severity product recalls but augment them in high-severity...

In mergers and acquisitions (M&As), brands account for significant but heterogeneous proportions of overall transaction value. The marketing literature focuses on the drivers of financial value of brands when there is no change in the ownership of brands. However, in M&As, the value of brands also depends on how their new owners leverage them. This...

While there is recognition that market-based capabilities contribute to a firm’s financial performance, the exposition is largely conceptual (Srivastava et al. Journal of Marketing 62:2–18, 1998; Journal of Marketing 63:168–179, 1999). Using a resource based view of the firm, the present study proposes that (1) market-based assets and capabilities...
Article
Existing research on the market evolution model focused on new product sales growth for a single product category. Accordingly, this approach did not imply any interactions among separate but related product categories that could affect each other's market growth. However, the importance of analyzing these inter-category relationships is emphasized...
Article
Customer equity and brand equity are two of the most important topics to academic researchers and practitioners. As part of the 2005 Thought Leaders Conference held at the University of Connecticut, the authors were asked to review what was known and not known about the relationship between brand equity and customer equity. During their discussions...

Managers must understand that marketing initiatives generate market-based assets – which have considerable value in and of themselves. These assets also have enduring value-in-use. They can be leveraged to provide marketplace results that fit with company strategy. Positive market performance, in turn, positively impacts cash flow dynamics and shar...
Article

For too long, marketers have not been held accountable for showing how marketing expenditures add to share-holder value. As time has gone by, this lack of accountability has undermined marketers' credibility, threatened the standing of the marketing function within the firm, and even threatened marketing's existence as a distinct capa-bility within...

Full-text available
Customer satisfaction is the predominant metric firms use for detecting and managing customers' likelihood to defect. But while satisfaction and defection are related, satisfaction is only a weak predictor of whether a customer will defect. This article suggests that for repurchase decisions that involve an information-based evaluation of alternati...
Article
The last decade has witnessed a shift from a focus on the value created by a single firm and product to an examination of the value created by networks of firms (or product ecosystems) in which assets are comingled with external entities. The authors examine these market-based assets in the context of network markets and propose an Integrated Netwo...

We propose here a conceptual framework that incorporates a model of individual consumer behaviour into a theory of dynamic market behaviour. We first formalize a set of propositions about consumer behaviour wherein the key concept of an affordance is introduced and conceptual links between product, person and purpose are explicated. These behaviour...

Industrial market sales processes are often long and protracted. These processes typically involve a “trial” stage when several competing options may be tested. Then, a smaller set of products may be bought in greater quantities for use. Hence, the central marketing problems in industrial (or business-to-business) markets for technological products...

A question invariably recurs in discussions about corporate reputation: are they cause, consequence, or epiphenomenon? That is: do they have an independent causal effect on corporate performance; are they a consequence of good financial performance? Or are they an incidental by-product?

This paper presents a new ideal point probabilistic choice model. Unlike the model suggested by Cooper and Nakanishi (Cooper, L. G., M. Nakanishi. 1983. Two logit models for external analysis of preferences. (4) 607–619.) which attempts to capture choices via a single ideal point, the proposed model, though based on aggregate data, allows for heter...

This paper treats crowding as an ecological phenomenon and as an objective and behavioral construct. According to this approach crowding is overmanning which refers to the larger size of population than is needed for the number of tasks within a given behavior setting or environment. An equation for the quantative measure of overmanning (crowding)...
