Advertising in Customer Markets
AbstractRepeat purchasing customers are more frequently informed of their regular firm's price than are other customers. Consequently customers leave the firm faster following a price increase than they arrive following a price decrease. Previous models treat the rate of customer acquisition following a price fall as exogenous. This paper introduces a two-period customer market model in which a firm may increase the rate of customer acquisition to it through advertising. It is demonstrated that, although the introduction of advertising might reduce the stickiness and the asymmetric response of price that characterizes customer markets, these effects are not eliminated.
