Modeling Dynamic Relations Among Marketing and Performance Metrics
Marketing and performance data often include measures repeated over time. Time-series models are uniquely suited to capture the time dependence of both a criterion variable and predictor variables, and how they relate to each other over time. The objective of this monograph is to give you a foundation in these models and to enable you to apply them to your own research domain of interest. To this end, the author discusses both the underlying perspectives and differences between alternative models, and the practical issues with testing, model choice, model estimation and interpretation common in empirical research. This combination of marketing phenomena and modeling philosophy sets this work apart from previous treatments on the broader topic of econometics and time series analysis in marketing. Time series models on marketing and performance metrics come in different forms, and we distinguish between 'traditional' time series models and the 'modern' time series models. Modeling Dynamic Relations Among Marketing and Performance Metrics first details the analysis steps, interpretation and marketing insights from traditional time series models. Starting with the univariate treatment of each separate marketing time series in evolution/stationarity tests and ARIMA models. Next, the author considers the over-time relation of multivariate time series in transfer functions and intervention analysis. The monograph then turns to multi-equation models, which are the core workhorses of modern dynamic econometric and time series models of the dynamic relations among marketing and performance metrics. The concluding section discusses policy analysis based on modern time series models and connect them to other time series developments.

GDPR: How To Achieve and Maintain Compliance
Following the implementation of the new General Data Protect Regulation on 25 May 2018, organizations should now be fully compliant with their national interpretation of this far-reaching data protection standard. The reality is that most are not; whether through their inappropriate use of online cookies or ineffective physical data security, businesses continue to struggle with the increasing pressure from regulators to apply the Regulation.

With the likelihood of high-profile penalties causing major reputational damage, this book explains how to reduce risk, run a remedial project, and take immediate steps towards mitigating gaps. Written in plain English, it provides an invaluable international reference for effective GDPR adoption.

Fashion & Music
This book will broaden readers' understanding of the links between the music and fashion industries. It highlights the challenges currently facing the fashion industry in terms of hyper-competition, definition of ever-faster trends, changing consumer demands etc. In fact, the fashion industry is heavily influenced by the digital revolution in the music industry, which has changed the face of individual music consumption and social reference, and therefore, also has impacts on fashion consumption and social reference. This understanding is crucial in order to realign any fashion company's strategies to the demands of modern fashion consumers. In terms of content, the book first discusses the social perspective of fashion and music. This includes an analysis of music as a key influencer of fashion trends, both theoretically and on the basis of a case study on grunge music. Then the role of music in the fashion business is addressed, and covers in-store music and the role of music in fashion communication. Following up, the role of fashion in the music business is analyzed. This includes the trend of co-design of fashion collections, music artists' role of differentiation by style, and the market for music fashion merchandise articles (both theoretically and drawing on a case study). In closing, potential lessons learned from the music industry are developed for the fashion industry. This includes an analysis of the digital revolution and the advent of the crowdfunding idea (both theoretically and in a case study).

Marketing and Mobile Financial Services: A Global Perspective on Digital Banking Consumer Behaviour
Mobile financial services (MFS) are of major interest and importance to both researchers and practitioners. The role played by nonbanking actors including telecoms and FinTech firms as well as other participants, such as PayPal and Amazon, in developing and deploying innovative financial and payment services is undeniable. Peer2peer (P2P) payments from nonbank services are becoming increasingly commonplace and will shortly be codified by EC (EU?) regulations requiring banks to provide access to consumer data for third-party app developers and service providers. Three major mobile financial systems-mobile banking, mobile payments, and branchless banking-currently dominate the electronic retail banking sector. Although interconnected and interrelated, their business models, regulatory frameworks, and target markets are distinct. This book provides a unified perspective on MFS and discusses its evolution, growth, and future, as well as identifying the frameworks, stakeholders, and technologies used in financial information systems in general and MFS in particular. Academics and researchers in digital and financial marketing will find this book an invaluable resource, as will bank executives, regulators, policy makers, FinTech professionals, and anyone interested in how mobile technology, social media and financial services will increasingly intersect.

The Emerald Handbook of Quantum Storytelling Consulting
There is a paradigm shift happening in storytelling consulting. The old one-story-fits-all consulting paradigm-helping companies to brand their founding story, do elevator pitches, and deliver stump speeches-is giving way to quantum storytelling consulting. The quantum age has moved away from a mechanist, Newtonian, simple-cause-and-effect understanding of reality and life, and storytelling consulting is now about an ensemble of stories rather than a single pitch. It's about developing the spaces for storytelling processes; it's about the times when storytelling is emerging; and it's about the kinds of `mattering' or material agency that the storytelling has. In the quantum age, space, time, and mattering have no separation; instead, spacetimemattering storytelling emerges, self-organizes, and creates change management. It is no longer the case that one narrative fits all. Rather, it is the interplay of many living stories that create the complex forces of change within organizations. The Emerald Handbook of Quantum Storytelling Consulting collects the findings of quantum storytelling researchers and consultants to develop a practical understanding of quantum storytelling consulting by sharing case examples, describing how to enact specific practices, and outlining how to conduct research into the impact and consequences of quantum thinking.

Multichannel Retailing: A Review and Research Agenda
Multichannel Retailing: A Review and Research Agenda presents an overview of and draws conclusions from extant studies related to multichannel retailing. Academic interest in this topic has increased dramatically, with a large number of new articles being published on this topic as retailers have adopted additional new channels and new channel technologies with unique characteristics, which has further increased the complexity of multichannel retailing. Thus, an updated understanding of how retailers and consumers influence and interact with each other in multichannel retail contexts is required. The authors focus on the following questions: (1) What factors influence channel choices of retailers and customers? (2) How do retailers employ multichannel marketing strategies, and how do customers use different channels to search and purchase during their purchase journey? And (3) How do multichannel strategies and channel selection behavior affect customer outcomes and retailer performance? After presenting the definitions of key terms used in multichannel retailing, the authors introduce their framework. Next, they synthesize existing research and specify the three research questions with six subtopics by considering the perspectives of both customers and retailers. At the end of each subtopic, the authors discuss future research directions derived from research gaps, unresolved issues in practice, and environment changes. The monograph concludes with thoughts about the future of retailing.

Experiential Marketing: Consumer Behavior, Customer Experience and The 7Es
Why do some brands make us feel good, while others frustrate us? What makes us engage with certain brands, rebuy the same products, return to the same store or revisit the same destination over and over again? Is there a framework underlying how past and lived shopping experiences can affect our future experiences, our buying decisions, and our brand loyalty? In this exciting new book, Wided Batat introduces readers to the new customer experience framework and the era of the Experiential Marketing Mix. She introduces the concept of the 7Es (Experience, Exchange, Extension, Emphasis, Empathy, Emotional touchpoints, Emic/Etic process); a tool that focuses on the consumer as a starting point in marketing strategies. By using these, companies can design suitable, emotional, and profitable customer experiences in a phygital context (physical place and digital space) including both offline and online digital experiences. Batat argues that a traditional product-centric should be replaced by the appropriate mix of 7Es, based upon a more consumer/experience-centric logic. Experiential Marketing is a guide to building experiences consumers cannot forget. It will be of interest for CEOs, brand managers, marketing and communication professionals, students, and anyone eager to learn more about how to design the ultimate customer experience in a new phygital. In this book, Professor Batat combines theory and practice and gives readers an overview of: the origins and the rise of the customer experience logic, the 7Es of the new experiential marketing mix, and the challenges for the future.

Retail history is a rich, cross-disciplinary field that demonstrates the centrality of retailing to many aspects of human experience, from the provisioning of everyday goods to the shaping of urban environments; from earning a living to the construction of identity. Over the last few decades, interest in the history of retail has increased greatly, spanning centuries, extending to all areas of the globe, and drawing on a range of disciplinary perspectives. By offering an up-to-date, comprehensive thematic, spatial and chronological coverage of the history of retailing, this Companion goes beyond traditional narratives that are too simplistic and Euro-centric and offers a vibrant survey of this field. It is divided into four broad sections: 1) Contexts, 2) Spaces and places, 3) People, processes and practices and 4) Geographical variations. Chapters are written in an analytical and synthetic manner, accessible to the general reader as well as challenging for specialists, and with an international perspective. This volume is an important resource to a wide range of readers, including marketing and management specialists, historians, geographers, economists, sociologists and urban planners.

Debates in Marketing Orientation
This book examines the fundamental problems and the alternative solutions of marketing orientation. Through a consideration of customer orientation and the marketing concept, Debates in Marketing Orientation considers the role of the individual in the marketing process. The debates reveal sources of managerial and cultural tension that can occur while trying to implement customer-oriented business processes at a marketing organization. How can academic and professional marketing perspectives be integrated? What are the main issues about understanding and analysing customer needs? What are the deepest roots of issues for organizations that aim to remain or become customer-oriented? Some of the interesting topics discussed are about academia and professional collaborations, demand management, stakeholder marketing, methodology development, marketing interfaces, new competition perspectives, managerial alternatives, mindsets, marketing skills, healthy organizations, marketing-driven operations, mixing branding constructs, integrative frameworks, human orientation, responsibility, ecosystems, organizational comfort zones, customer-driven organizational cultures, internationalization, and social impact. This book is a call towards a creative marketing concept as the core of post industry competition: where marketing is an alternative to management.

Chinese and Indian Medicine Today: Branding Asia
This book discusses Asian medicine, which puts enormous emphasis on prevention and preservation of health, and examines how, in recent decades, medical schools in Asia have been increasingly shifting toward a curative approach. It offers an ethnographic investigation of the scenarios in China and India and finds that modern students and graduates in these countries perceive Asian medicine to be as important as Western medicine. There is a growing tendency to integrate Asian medicine with Western medical thought in the academic curriculum that has led to a gradual decline of Asian medical thought and practices. At the same time, there has been a massive rise in patent drugs, health products and cosmetics being sold under the brand names of Asian medicine or herbal medicine. Most of these drugs and health products do not follow the classical formulas found in the Asian medical texts. The book analyses these texts and concludes that contemporary Asian medicine rarely follows the classical texts, and in fact uses Asian medicine brands to sell Western health products and practices.With a particular focus on the formal and professional sector of Chinese herbal medicine and Indian ayurvedic medicine in urban areas, this book appeals to a broad readership, including undergraduate students and academics as well as non-experts. Md. Nazrul Islam is an Associate Professor in the General Education Office, United International College, Beijing Normal University-Hong Kong Baptist University. He was a Visiting Associate Professor in the School of Population and Public Health, University of British Columbia (2015-16) during which time he completed this book manuscript.

Authentic Marketing: How to Capture Hearts and Minds Through the Power of Purpose
Engage on a deeper level by disrupting the typical business development script Authentic Marketing offers a forward-thinking approach to achieving an entirely new level of engagement with today's purpose-driven and skeptical audiences. The heart of this process involves finding the soul of your organization. When moral purpose becomes central to your organization, it can deliver benefits to both the bottom line and mankind: a profit meets purpose proposition. This path requires a reinvention of today's dated business model, abolishing the inefficient, siloed approach of developing a business strategy first and then later creating separate strategies for marketing, HR, manufacturing, R&D, etc. The new integrated model fuses a tight integration of business, technology innovation and engagement strategies, all of which are bound together by a company's moral purpose. When moral purpose is central to an organization's core, everything branches out from a place of authenticity. Rather than a siloed CSR effort, you develop employee and customer relationships based on real--not curated--connections with a brand's moral mission. You build true engagement, trust and evangelism. And, along the way, your customers will actually help to co-create your brand. This book shows you how to transform your business by putting moral purpose to work for your stakeholders and the planet. Embrace a new model that integrates business, technology innovation, and engagement strategies with moral purpose as the glue that binds them together Learn the key steps to find your moral purpose Discover how to engage audiences with a transparent, authentic marketing approach that forges powerful connections and builds trust. With a world of options at their fingertips, today's purpose-driven customers want a brand they can identify with and trust. Authentic Marketing shows you how to make your brand more human, more likeable, more genuine and guides you on how to connect with audiences on a moral level. This process will build a new level of engagement that will benefit both your long-term value and the world.

The Undermining of Beliefs in the Autonomy and Rationality of Consumers
This book examines modern consumption, focusing on concepts of autonomy and rationality. In recent years, conventional ideas of 'free will' have come under attack in the context of consumer choice and similarly, postmodernists have sabotaged the very notion of consumer rationality. O'Shaughnessy and O'Shaughnessy adopt a moderating perspective, reviewing and critiquing these attacks in order to work towards a more nuanced view of the consumer: neither entirely autonomous nor perfectly rational. While the first part of this book concentrates on assailing critiques of 'free-will', the second part takes issue with the postmodernist emphasis on the non-rational. The authors situate these critiques in the context of key academic debate, examining the logic and empirical bases for their claims thus leading to a deeper understanding of 'bounded' rationality and the potential of the adaptive unconscious to affect consumer choice.

This volume brings together quantitative and qualitative approaches and highlights the most current innovations in theory and practice. Going beyond the traditional constraints of price theory and price policy, the authors coined the term price management to represent a holistic approach to pricing strategy and tactical implementation. They remind us that the Ancient Romans used one word, pretium, to mean both price and value. This is the fundamental philosophy that drives successful price management where producer and customer meet. Featuring dozens of examples and case studies drawn from their extensive research, consulting, and teaching around the world, Simon and Fassnacht cover all aspects of pricing following the price management process with its four phases: strategy, analysis, decision, and implementation. Thereby, the authors take into account the nuances across industry sectors, including consumer goods, industrial products, services, and trade/distribution. In particular, they address the implications of technological advancements, such as the Internet and new measurement and sensor technologies that have led to a wealth of price management innovations, such as flat rates, freemium, pay-per-use, or pay-what-you-want. They also address the emergence of new price metrics, Big Data applications, two-sided price systems, negative prices, and the sharing economy, as well as emerging payment systems such as bitcoin. The result is a bible for leaders who recognize that price is not only a means to drive profit in the short term, but a tool to generate sustained growth in shareholder value over the longer term, and a primer for researchers, instructors, and students alike. Praise for Price Management This book is truly state of the art and the most comprehensive work in price management. - Prof. Philip Kotler, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University This very important book builds an outstanding bridge between science and practice. - Kasper Rorsted, CEO, Adidas This book provides practical guidelines on value creation, communication and management, which is an imperative for businesses to survive in the coming era of uncertainty. - Dr. Chang-Gyu Hwang, Chairman and CEO, KT Corporation (Korea Telecom)

Myths of Branding: A Brand is Just a Logo, and Other Popular Misconceptions
A brand is just a logo - everyone knows that, don't they? After all, it's not as though a good brand can save a bad business, and besides, the digital revolution is making branding irrelevant... Myths of Branding, written by renowned branding experts Andy Milligan and Simon Bailey, explores the huge number of misguided, mistaken and blatantly false myths that abound in the branding arena. From the belief that developing brands is nothing more than fiddling with logos, to the perception that it's a 'soft' area of marketing that doesn't go beyond visual identity - these myths are all surprisingly entrenched, yet could not be further from the truth. Myths of Branding takes the most up-to-date research and evidence to debunk these popular misconceptions, and replaces them with the reality of what it's really like to work in the world of branding. Jam-packed with entertaining anecdotes and useful information that practitioners can learn from, it guarantees a deeper, sharper understanding of the realities of branding and brand management.

Few professions have their compensation as scrutinized as business-to-business (B2B) salespeople. Salespeople's compensation, like that for CEOs, has triggered many debates. Experts have examined issues ranging from compensation levels, structures, caps, complexity, fairness, gaps with other members of the organization, to menus of compensation. But unlike CEOs who are usually recognized as crucial members of organizations, salespeople's critical role is rarely acknowledged and despite its economic and corporate importance though sales has traditionally carried a stigma on both academic and industry fronts. Simultaneously, no other employee is in direct contact and in charge of a firm's most precious asset: its customers' relationships. For this reason, salespeople's success is critical to their organizations' performance. Sales Force Compensation: Trends and Research Opportunities reviews the many insights provided by empirical research to date, some of which are just emerging in the marketing literature. First, it reviews how plans should be designed according to the dominant research stream and contrast research findings with actual sales force compensation policies. Then, it highlights topics related to sales force compensation that are notably under-researched and show how taking them into account will enrich knowledge on compensation. Finally, the authors conclude with future trends in sales force compensation.

Inter-Organizational Culture: Linking Relationship Marketing with Organizational Behavior
In order to be developed, inter-organizational relationships, as well as organizational cultures, rely on communication, learning, trust, commitment, and shared meanings and symbols. This book discusses the emergence and development of an inter-organizational culture, in which meanings, beliefs, and values of people from different companies interact. It proposes that inter-organizational culture can be seen as a culture of intersection, because of the association of cultural perspectives between suppliers and intermediaries. The more the parties are motivated to maintain the relationship, the more willing they are to invest in that relationship, which minimizes the risk of dissolution, promotes interaction, and contributes to cultural changes. The authors consider organizational culture through a three-perspective framework involving integration, differentiation, and fragmentation, at the intersection of which inter-organizational culture develops. This book will provide scholars with a better understanding of the connection between relationship marketing and organizational behavior, through the emergence of a specific culture.

The Innovation Navigator: Transforming Your Organization in the Era of Digital Design and Collaborative Culture
Innovation is a top strategic priority for firms across all industries. In The Innovation Navigator, Tucker J. Marion and Sebastian K. Fixson explore four innovation archetypes or modes - specialist, venture, community, and network - which feature prominently in the expanding innovation landscape. Specialists employ technologies to achieve entirely new solutions and superior product performance. New corporate ventures lower the barriers for employees to self-select into entrepreneurial projects, while reducing the constraints of bureaucracy. The community brings new sources of knowledge by expanding past the firm's boundaries, dramatically increasing the number of participants. The network creates partnerships and ecosystems that create innovations that could not be developed by individual companies alone. The Innovation Navigator guides the reader in exploring and exploiting these different modes of innovation. Individual chapters provide key insights into the inherent opportunities and challenges from a number of vantage points: from the impact on organizational resources to the role of incentives. The book also provides a framework for how firms can leverage dynamic mode shifts and multimode strategies. Firms across the industrial spectrum are profiled, from new additive manufacturing companies such as Formlabs, community-based solution providers like Forth, to traditional firms exploring new modes like GE Appliances and their FirstBuild initiative. The Innovation Navigator will assist executives in building the capabilities for peak performance in this new innovation landscape.
