Variety Seeking (VS) and Choice VS has an impact on choice in a seemingly random but inherently systematic way. Since the pattern is not directly observable, tracking down VS is not straightforward.
Variety Seeking (VS) Literature Brand-based VS Changes in brand choices over time (e.g., Peter Pan Jif Peter Pan in peanut butter) Does not specify the source of VS in terms of attributes (e.g., crunch vs. creamy in peanut butter).
Variety Seeking (VS) Literature Attribute-based VS Focus on VS changes in attributes (e.g., crunchy vs. creamy in peanut butter, “fruitness” in yogurt) (Trivedi, Bass & Rao 1994 MS; Erdem 1996 MS; Chintagunta 1999 Management Science) Consumers are more likely to switch between sensory attributes (e.g., flavor) than nonsensory attributes (e.g., brand) (Inman 2001 JCR).
Research Problem: Unobserved Variety Seeking Level Changes We can observe VS changes in brands or attributes within the same consumer given the consumer’s purchase history in the product category. John’s Peanut butter history: Peter Pan (PP, favorite brand) PP Jif PP Skippy PP
Research Problem: Unobserved Variety Seeking Level Changes We don’t observe VS level changes that drive the consumer’s wants and needs for different brands or attributes.
Research Problem: Unobserved Variety Seeking Level Changes Unobserved VS level changes In the high VS level, consumers tend to try something different from their favorite alternatives. (e.g.) I usually go to a Chinese restaurant for lunch. But, I want to eat something different today like pizza. In the low VS level, consumers tend to stick with their favorite alternatives. (e.g.) I’ll eat Chinese food today as usual.
Research Problem: Unobserved Variety Seeking Level Changes Research Question?: Consumers are expected to react to price cuts or promotion more strongly in the high VS state (because they want to try something different from their favorites) than in the low VS state (because they tend to stick with their favorites).
Research Problem: Unobserved Variety Seeking Level Changes unobserved VS level changes Tracking down unobserved VS level changes can reveal an unobserved and inherent motivation for observed VS in terms of brands or alternatives. No study has investigated the problem. The hidden Markov model (HMM) is an effective tool to track down the unobserved VS level changes over time within the same consumer.
Why Hidden Markov Model (HMM)? Markov Chain The Markov chain can detect transition probabilities between observed states. (Table Example) States: rain or no rain States are observable. Tomorrow rain Tomorrow no rain Today rain.3.7 Today no rain.1.9
Why Hidden Markov Model (HMM)? Markov Chain The Markov chain can detect transition probabilities between observed states. (Table Example) States: choice of different foods States are observable. Tomorrow Chinese food Tomorrow other foods Today Chinese food.3.7 Today other foods.8.2
Hidden Why Hidden Markov Model (HMM)? Hidden Markov Model What if states of interest are not directly observable? (Table Example) States: internal VS level (high vs. low) unobservable States are unobservable. Tomorrow high VS Tomorrow low VS Today high VS.2.8 Today low VS.6.4
Hidden Why Hidden Markov Model (HMM)? Hidden Markov Model Unlike the Markov chain that deals with observed states, the HMM deals with a series of unobserved states (e.g. VS level) based on another series of relevant and observed states (e.g., brand choice). Time1234---T Brand choice (observed) Jif SkippyJif---Peter Pan VS level (unobserved) Low HighLow---High
Hidden Markov Model (HMM) in Literature Traditional applications of HMM: Automatic speech recognition (engineering) Modeling incomplete DNA sequences (genomics) Applications of HMM in marketing are relatively new but has been intensive for the past few years. Montgomery et al. (2004, MS) to identify unobservable goals driving web browsing behavior Du & Kamakura (2006, JMR) to define household purchase lifecycles as latent states Moon, Kamakura & Ledolter (2007, JMR) to estimate unobserved competitor promotions
Proposed Model: Hidden Markov Multinomial Probit Choice Model My proposed model has three components as follows: 1) Multinomial probit model component as a choice model, 2) HMM to track down consumers’ unobserved internal level of VS over time, and 3) Random coefficients model (hierarchical Bayesian model) to account for customer heterogeneity. In other words, VS level changes are investigated for each individual consumer.
Model Development: Hidden Markov Multinomial Probit Choice Model U = Utility h = household; j = alternative (brand); t = time (purchase occasion) P = price; F = feature (ad); D = display
Model Development: Hidden Markov Multinomial Probit Choice Model V = Variety Seeking Reference Brand = brand purchased on last purchase occasion (time = t-1) V(hjt) = 1 for reference brand j if Variety Seeking is in the High state = -1 for the case j is not reference brand if Variety Seeking is in the High state, and = 0 for all brands if Variety Seeking is in the Low state.
Model Development: Hidden Markov Multinomial Probit Choice Model I = Inertia Reference Brand = brand purchased on last purchase occasion (time = t-1) I(hjt) = 1 for reference brand j if Variety Seeking is in the Low state = -1 for the case j is not reference brand if Variety Seeking is in the Low state, and = 0 for all brands if Variety Seeking is in the High state.
Hidden Markov Multinomial Probit Choice Model (2-State Transition Probabilities) Q = transition probabilities between states L = low VS state H = high VS state
Model Estimation: MCMC The model will be estimated using MCMC, which will have the following three components: 1) Multinomial probit model component, 2) Hidden Markov model (HMM) (Kim and Nelson 1999), and 3) Hierarchical Bayesian structure.
Peanut Butter Data Grocery panel data (ERIM data) from Professor Peter Rossi at University of Chicago. Peanut butter has been used in prior VS research (Kahn, Kalwani, and Morrison 1986 JMR; Erdem 1996 MS)
Peanut Butter Data I selected households with 16+ purchases during the data period (198505-198723, 2 years 19 weeks). I selected top 52% cases. 46,654 observations 1,755 households The whole period is divided into two periods: Estimation period (198505 198704, the first 2 full years, 40,078 observations, 1,755 households) Validation period (198705 198723, the last 19 weeks, 6,576 observations, 1,523 households).
Anticipated Contributions Methodological contribution 1: first application of HMM to VS. The proposed model captures unobserved VS level changes instead of the usual and observed VS in choice. Methodological contribution 2: first model that combines HMM and multinomial probit model (+hierarchical Bayesian) Substantive contribution: price/promotion sensitivity comparison between the high and low VS states
Project No. 2: Variety Seeking in Hedonic Goods Idea: empirical VS study in hedonic goods There are a lot of behavioral studies but little empirical research on hedonic VS using a choice model.
Project No. 2: Variety Seeking in Hedonic Goods Definition: Hedonic goods offer the experiences of fun, pleasure, or excitement. (e.g.) movies, music, designer clothers, sports cars Data: Empirically, netflix.com movie data are being used in the context of movie category choice (e.g., action, drama, comedy).
Project No. 2: Variety Seeking in Hedonic Goods Research Question: Consumer satisfaction (consumers’ own movie ratings) and community opinions (community’s overall ratings) are important factors to influence choice but we don’ know under what conditions which factor has a bigger influence than the other one.
Project No. 2: Variety Seeking in Hedonic Goods This project specifies the conditions in association with the VS level. In the low VS state, consumer satisfaction plays a bigger role because consumers rely on their own expertise when selecting movies from their favorite and familiar categories. In the high VS state, consumers are likely to explore less familiar categories, which will make them more reliant on community opinions.
