  • Frontline knowledge networks in open collaboration models for service
    • Abstract: Abstract Service organizations often view customer-facing or frontline employees (FLEs) as sources of inimitable knowledge valuable for innovation. This is due to the experiential nature of service and subtle qualities of engaging customer interactions. Yet, organizations face significant challenges while leveraging the knowledge of their FLEs to develop service innovations. Drawing upon the open innovation and social network literatures, we theorize the role of FLE networks, and the degree to which these networks enable the flow of distinct content for realizing effective service innovation. Specifically, we conceptualize a taxonomy of network domains—connecting customer- and internal-facing employees, and resource flows—new knowledge and self-governance activities, to provide a framework for FLE roles in knowledge networks for service-innovation. Our taxonomy expands opportunities for theorizing the mechanisms of frontline knowledge networks in service innovation as well as identifying a “dark side” that undermines potential innovation gains if left unchecked. Future directions and implications for theory and practice are discussed.

  • A MAP for effective advertising: the metaphoric advertising processing
    • Abstract: Metaphors can trigger attention and surprise, elicit positive feelings when the non-obvious metaphoric meaning is deciphered, and accelerate the understanding of complex or abstract information due to figurative metaphoric associations. Hence, metaphors can satisfy important requirements of marketing communications. Accordingly, in recent decades, an increasing amount of marketing research has examined this concept. The present article provides an overview of this research on metaphors in the advertising literature, outlines the importance of metaphoric advertising for achieving key marketing aims, and identifies crucial research gaps in the current literature. Based on this overview, we integrate theoretical ideas and empirical findings from marketing and (consumer) psychology to develop the Metaphoric Advertising Processing Model (MAP), which offers new insights into the definition, processing, comprehension, and outcomes of metaphoric advertising. We conclude with concrete suggestions and recommendations for future research and describe the practical implications of the model.

  • Empowerment in marketing: synthesis, critical review, and agenda for
           future research
    • Abstract: Abstract We comprehensively review consumer empowerment, which has received increasing attention from academics and has given rise to inconsistent theoretical frameworks. Building on a multidisciplinary approach and a review of power models, we begin with a conceptualization of empowerment, identifying the concept’s contours and origins. Then, we show how multidisciplinary advancements influence the marketing discipline through an assessment of the empowerment literature. We reveal important knowledge gaps on the topic related to different theoretical orientations and various levels of analysis and context. We then propose an organizing framework to help understand the underlying mechanisms induced in psychological empowerment by changes in the market structure and technological shifts, consumer-to-firm, state-to-consumer, and firm-to-consumer deliberate actions. Our critical review of the marketing literature reveals the limits of prior research, and we suggest directions for future theoretical and empirical research on the consumer empowerment theme.

  • The ultimate co-creation: leveraging customer input in business model
    • Abstract: Abstract In order to stay competitive, organizations need to regularly revamp and innovate their business model (BM). A key catalyst for innovation—acknowledged by managers as well as academics—is input from customers. However, the functional aspect of customer input in the process of business model innovation (BMI) is still ambiguous. In this paper, we explore the role of customers in the process of BMI and propose a conceptual model that links customer input to BMI success. Particularly, our model demonstrates how customer input is generated and how organizations can efficiently and effectively manage such input to enhance the performance of their newly innovated BM. This proposed model provides managers with a basis for developing actionable plans to reach customers, utilize their input during the BMI process, and enhance BMI success.

  • Firm authenticity: the construct, research propositions, and managerial
    • Abstract: Abstract Firm authenticity is conceptualized as a dual-component hierarchical model, suggesting that authenticity is manifested at different organizational (employee, leadership, and strategic management) levels, as well as in the organization’s marketplace presence (products, brands, and corporate identity). Firm authenticity is distinguished from trustworthiness, corporate social responsibility, and market orientation, providing insight into the strategy’s theoretical boundaries. Drawing on signaling and stakeholder theories, a mediated conceptual model capturing a series of research propositions is advanced. Signaling theory suggests that signaling authenticity can be effective, and stakeholder theory proposes that firm authenticity appeals to all stakeholders, resulting in increased shareholder value and potentially shielding the firm from negative consumer reactions, whereas signaling theory proposes that it positively influences consumer related outcome variables (loyalty and purchase intentions). Managers are encouraged to integrate authenticity into their organizations, while research extensions that operationalize the construct and test its nomological validity, using latent variable modeling, secondary data analysis, or a combination thereof are recommended.

  • The extended self, product valuation, and the endowment effect
    • Abstract: Abstract Various explanations have been proposed to account for discrepancies in product valuation, pertaining particularly to the buyer-seller valuation gap called the endowment effect. Previous research has examined the roles of loss sensitivity, strategic responding, differences between buyers and sellers in information processing, self-enhancement, and psychological ownership as causes of the endowment effect. This article presents a conceptual perspective based on the theory of the extended self that integrates previously proposed mechanisms for the endowment effect. The self-extension perspective generates novel predictions about possible moderators of the endowment effect. Further, the self-extension perspective also raises questions for product valuation in general. By integrating previous research and posing new questions, the self-extension perspective provides a new base for the advancement of research on product valuation.

  • The transition from products to connected health: observations and avenues
           for future research
    • Abstract: Abstract The transition of ResMed, the world’s leading manufacturer of therapies and devices for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, from a goods producer to an information-intensive firm presents a compelling opportunity for marketing scholars to revisit fundamental issues in strategic marketing’s theoretical past. These issues are still vitally relevant today and spark a host of interesting and important research opportunities for marketing scholars to pursue. In this commentary, we identify three important transformations undertaken by ResMed’s strategic leadership, which have strong ties to classical marketing theories and scholarship. First, ResMed moves from being a goods manufacturer to an information-intensive firm. This raises questions about the value of information that should intrigue marketing researchers. Second, the firm redefines its business, and does this not just once, but as is apparent from the case, on a dynamic basis. There are many avenues for marketing scholars of today to return to and explore in this regard. Third, ResMed makes substantial shifts in organizational culture, and also changes its structure as the result of its transformed strategy. While culture has been reasonably well considered in the marketing literature, the strategy-structure debate has mostly been conceded to strategic management scholars. There are still very fruitful research issues for marketing academics to explore in this regard.

    • Abstract: Abstract A growing area of marketing research has surfaced in the past 20 years at the nexus of marketing and sustainability. However, a review of marketing literature shows that this field lacks conceptual and theoretical clarity. This article reviews research published on sustainability from 25 leading marketing journals between 1997 and 2016. It examines how theories used to frame sustainability in marketing literature have evolved. Additionally, no unified definition for sustainability exists in current marketing literature. To fill this void, the author proposes a new, holistic definition of sustainability in marketing, coined “sustainable marketing,” which is unique to the marketing discipline. Through presenting the GREEN Framework of Sustainable Marketing, the author conceptually and theoretically clarifies, unifies, and extends the current research. Finally, the systematic review explores implications for theory and practice and offers researchers, practitioners, and policymakers many opportunities for future research.

  • Complex systems: marketing’s new frontier
    • Abstract: Abstract Complex systems approaches are emerging as new methods that complement conventional analytical and statistical approaches for analyzing marketing phenomena. These methods can provide researchers with tools to understand and predict marketing outcomes that emerge at the aggregate level by modeling feedback between heterogeneous agents and agent interaction with various marketing environmental variables. While the benefits of complex systems approaches often come with a high computational cost, steady advances in access to better computational resources has allowed more researchers to adopt complex systems approaches as part of their portfolio of methods. In this paper, we will provide a description of the key concepts, benefits, and tools of complex systems. The goal of this work is to encourage marketing researchers and practitioners who are not familiar with these approaches to consider the adoption of these methods. We end with a discussion of the future research opportunities that this powerful methodology enables.

  • Consumer empowerment in consumer–firm relationships: conceptual
           framework and implications for research
    • Abstract: Abstract This article contributes to the literature on consumer power in consumer-firm relationships in three ways. First, it proposes a consumer empowerment framework adopting a consumer perspective that includes the antecedents and consequences of consumer power perception. Second, it distinguishes two manifestations of consumer power perception: personal power—the perceived ability to resist or ignore a firm’s persuasive efforts and make final decisions independently—and social power—the perception of influencing a firm’s decisions and responses. Third, it identifies the entities involved (i.e., firms, third parties, and other consumers) that empower consumers through the exchange of resources. Moreover, this article discusses how the constructs of consumer power and empowerment differ from related concepts such as perceived control and self-efficacy. Finally, it proposes a research agenda.

  • Multiple stakeholder market orientation: a service-dominant logic
           perspective of the market orientation paradigm
    • Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this research is to propose a comprehensive conceptualization of the market orientation construct that acknowledges the role of salient stakeholders in value co-creation. The proposed multiple stakeholder market orientation (MSMO) construct is a more broadly defined conceptualization of what it means to implement the marketing concept in a multi-stakeholder business environment. The construct is developed within the context of prevailing theoretical perspectives including the service-dominant logic of marketing, stakeholder theory, and the market orientation paradigm. Specifically, the construct is developed as an interconnected operant resource consisting of a stakeholder orientation, a systems orientation, and a shared value orientation.

  • A conceptual perspective on collaborative consumption
    • Abstract: Abstract While considerable investigative work has focused on collaborative consumption (CC) from a managerial standpoint, the concept still lacks the conceptual groundwork necessary to categorize and fully understand its scopes and limits. In this article, the authors draw upon past research to delineate the construct, discuss its dimensionalities, and propose a conceptualization of CC. The CC concept is based on six key thrusts: (1) the consumer’s ability to switch sides; (2) the collaboration intensity; (3) the manner in which consumers partake in CC; (4) the transfer of ownership and use; (5) the channels used; and (6) the extended range of stakeholders in collaborative exchanges. This analytical endeavour brings to the fore the multidimensional aspect of CC, the centrality of a two-sided instead of a one-sided consumer role, and the extent to which both CC (collaborative consumption) and conventional consumption (conventional economy) are tightly interrelated.

  • How valence, volume and variance of online reviews influence brand
    • Abstract: Abstract Online reviews can strongly influence purchase decisions. In the past decade, extensive research in the field of online reviews has focused on product categories (e.g., hedonic, utilitarian) and product sales. However, research on how the characteristics of online reviews (valence, volume, and variance) influence attitudes toward brands is sparse, even though brands are among the most valuable corporate assets and companies use online marketing extensively to increase brand loyalty. Thus, this paper offers a conceptual model that closely examines the relationship between the characteristics of online reviews and brand attitudes. The model contributes to a better understanding of the influence of contextual factors on brand attitudes within online communication. In line with prior research, the study conceptualizes volume and variance as moderators of valence. Furthermore, the proposed conceptual model integrates brand type (functional, emotional, symbolic, and lifestyle) and the source of review (stranger or acquaintance) as potential moderators. Conceptual insights, along with managerial implications for online marketing managers, are provided.

  • A framework for studying the impact of outdoor atmospherics in retailing
    • Authors: Peter H. Bloch; Omid Kamran-Disfani
      Abstract: Abstract The design of retail stores and shopping environments is critical to attracting customers and maintaining profitability. Over the years, research on retail design and atmospherics has been almost completely focused on store interiors. This research shortfall is unfortunate given the increasing focus of savvy retail managers on brand building and the creation of sustainable competitive advantage through exterior store architecture, outdoor lifestyle centers, and urban shopping districts. In order to stimulate research in this important, yet under-researched topic area, we synthesize literature from a number of domains and provide a conceptual framework that examines the impact of outdoor atmospherics on shoppers’ psychological and behavioral responses. After presentation of this framework, we discuss implications for practice and potential avenues for future research.

  • Brand-self connections and brand prominence as drivers of employee brand
    • Authors: Lucy Gill-Simmen; Deborah J. MacInnis; Andreas B. Eisingerich; C. Whan Park
      Abstract: Abstract Past research reveals that customers can attach meanings to brands that create strong connections between the brand and the self. When they do, and when the brand is prominent in their minds, they become psychologically attached to the brand, and display strong brand loyalty and advocacy behaviors. We use a grounded theory framework to ask if employees develop similar brand-self connections and regard the brand as prominent in their lives based on the meaning they attach to the brand they work for. This question is important because employee’s attachment to the brand can have critical equity-driving implications for the brand’s marketplace success and the employee’s commitment to the organization. We also ask what drives such outcomes. Beyond identifying novel drivers of employees’ brand attachment, we find that employees’ attachment to a brand is conceptually and empirically different from attachment or commitment to the organization. Specifically, we observe employees who are not attached to the organization but who are still attached to the brand, and who engage in difficult-to-enact pro-brand and pro-organization behaviors. Finally, our findings contribute to a broader knowledge base on organizational commitment and attachment by identifying brand meaning-related drivers of employees’ organizational commitment/attachment. Prior research has studied non-brand related drivers of these organizational outcomes.

  • Constructing a theoretical framework for the process of innovation
    • Authors: Anastasia Thyroff; Jennifer Christie Siemens; Jeff B. Murray
      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this research is to provide a framework for studying the key stakeholders who play a role in the process legitimation of an innovation. Specifically, we combine Foucault’s discourse on power, Latour’s Actor Network Theory and Goffman’s frame analysis to present a theoretical framework for the process of innovation legitimation (PIL). To demonstrate its usefulness, we apply the PIL framework to the context of nanotechnology. We ultimately determine that there are four key stakeholders trying to frame nanotechnology: 1) Advancement (i.e., government), 2) Management (i.e., industry), 3) Development (i.e., academia), and 4) Reflection (i.e., NGOs). The trajectory of market formation and legitimation for nanotechnology will depend largely on the cultural discourses that are disseminated by these four actors and the way other peripheral actors interpret the dominant frames. By conceptualizing the current frames for an innovation in the process of legitimizing, the future of each key discourse can be envisioned.

  • Market orientation − firm performance link in a dynamic environment:
           looking inside the black box
    • Authors: Rahul Kumar Sett
      Abstract: Abstract Our understanding of how market orientation can sustain superior firm performance in a rapidly changing environment is still evolving. This paper presents a model that explains the phenomenon by viewing market orientation as a firm-level dynamic capability that comprises three component capacities: to sense opportunities and threats; to seize opportunities and/or guard against threats; and to reconfigure firm resources in sync with environmental changes. These three capacities represent the three dimensions of market orientation. The nature of these capacities and the organizational processes that undergird them are explicated. It is argued that the capacities of sensing, seizing, and resource reconfiguration can help a market oriented firm to advantageously exploit environmental uncertainties and thereby sustain superior performance. Direction of future research and managerial implications are discussed.

  • Toward an improved conceptual understanding of consumer ambivalence
    • Authors: Jenni Sipilä; Anssi Tarkiainen; Sanna Sundqvist
      Abstract: Abstract Despite the significance of ambivalence in consumer research, the concept suffers from a lack of clarity. This study thus aims to develop an improved conceptual understanding of consumer ambivalence based on the analysis of existing definitions. A number of challenges are observed and addressed through key premises that characterize the concept of consumer ambivalence. Furthermore, the presented conceptualization is contextualized into the area of consumption. The result of this process is an enhanced view of consumer ambivalence that builds on and extends earlier conceptualizations in 1) recognizing a wide variety of concepts that can be studied under the umbrella of consumer ambivalence, 2) specifying the multitude of objects of consumer ambivalence, and 3) specifying the temporal scope of consumer ambivalence through the concept of consumption episodes. The proposed conceptualization accommodates the richness of different approaches to consumer ambivalence and thus contributes to a wide range of consumer research.
