Many data sets, from different and seemingly unrelated marketing domains, all involve paths---records of consumers' movements in a spatial configuration. Path data contain valuable information for marketing researchers because they describe how consumers interact with their environment and make dynamic choices. As data collection technologies improve and researchers continue to ask deeper questions about consumers' motivations and behaviors, path data sets will become more common and will play… Expand
An Integrated Model of Grocery Store Shopping Path and Purchase Behavior
As behavioral hypotheses about in-store decision making become more common in the marketing literature, there is a growing need for richer, more complete datasets in order to test them moreExpand
Mapping the Customer Journey: A Graph-Based Framework for Online Attribution Modeling
TLDR
A graph-based framework to analyze multichannel online customer path data as first- and higher-order Markov walks to indicate substantial differences to existing heuristics such as “last click wins” as well as alternative attribution approaches are introduced. Expand
Market Response and Marketing Mix Models: Trends and Research Opportunities
Market response models help managers understand how customers collectively respond to marketing activities, and how competitors interact. When appropriately estimated, market response models can be aExpand
Investigating the Drivers of Consumer Cross-Category Learning for New Products Using Multiple Data Sets
TLDR
A multicategory framework to analyze the role of intrinsic or internal factors, external influences, and external influences in the formation and evolution of consumer preferences across categories shows that consumer new product adoption and learning is indeed impacted significantly and to various degrees by the aforementioned factors.

Bayesian Multi-Resolution Spatial Analysis with Applications to Marketing
TLDR
A new approach for multi-resolution spatial analysis that is based on Bayesian model selection is proposed that allows researchers to not only automatically select the resolution of the analysis, but also analyze the data under different resolutions to understand the variation in insights and robustness to the level of aggregation.

The Role of Big Data and Predictive Analytics in Retailing
TLDR
The paper examines the opportunities in and possibilities arising from big data in retailing, particularly along five major data dimensions—data pertaining to customers, products, time, (geo-spatial) location and channel, with a particular focus on the relevance and uses of Bayesian analysis techniques.

The impact of advertising along the conversion funnel
We assemble a unique data set that combines information on supermarket feature advertising with path-tracking data on consumers’ movement within the store as well as purchase information. Using theseExpand

Dynamic Conversion Behavior at E-Commerce Sites
TLDR
The proposed model of conversion behavior that predicts each customer's probability of purchasing based on an observed history of visits and purchases offers excellent statistical properties, including its performance in a holdout validation sample, and also provides useful managerial diagnostics about the patterns underlying online buyer behavior.

Modeling Browsing Behavior at Multiple Websites
TLDR
A stochastic timing model of cross-site visit behavior is developed to understand how to leverage information from one site to help explain customer behavior at another and shows that a failure to account for both sources of association not only leads to poor fit and forecasts, but also generates systematically biased parameter estimates.

Modeling Online Browsing and Path Analysis Using Clickstream Data
TLDR
This work shows how path information can be categorized and modeled using a dynamic multinomial probit model of Web browsing and finds that purchasers can be predicted with more than 40% accuracy, which is much better than the benchmark 7% purchase conversion prediction rate made without path information.
