Theme park events can take place almost any time of year, be separately ticketed or included for day guests, involve heavy repeat visitation or be a one-time experience, and may cannibalize day ticket sales. We designed a seasonal event schedule based on results from a modified volumetric conjoint, allowing for simulation of varying numbers of events per year and an estimate of regular day cannibalization. Learn what worked, what didn't, and what we know now.
Segmentations are hard to activate. We experienced it at WS Audiology when we engaged in consumer segmentation work, commissioned after two firms, with different brands and cultures, had merged. Our activation journey included forward and backward steps. Forward by envisioning the purposes of segmentation in the business model. Backward by utilizing creative activation approaches and making explicit leadership calls. At the heart is an active leadership position that we took as market research professionals.

Once you learn a few tricks and a bit about the syntax, you’re ready to go!

Disaggregate HH panel data can be used in place of survey data from a CBC study by considering that each choice a consumer makes is done so within a set of competing options (other products on the shelf). CBC/HB was modified to generate part-worths and create a subsequent choice model which can be used to build scenarios for product assortment changes across retailers.
Value is essential in business and leads to better products. To understand value, we need to ask about value post purchase once consumers have experienced it. In this presentation we evaluate a willingness-to-accept (WTA ) approach, i.e., the amount of money that consumers would accept to give up using a specific product or service, on 11 US Fortune 500 brands and we discuss how it was used by LinkedIn.
