Guitarists in the Digital Era

October 31, 2012 § Leave a comment

Following our participation to the REGNUM Project (a research  funded by the French National Research Agency), my colleague Régis Dumoulin and I developped a research centered on the evolution of musicians’ criteria when choosing an electric solid body guitar. We investigate the Audiofanzine forum and did some textmining in order to identify whether criteria evolved thanks to the infinite information available on the Internet. Our research hypothesis, derived from Institutional Theory and from a historical analysis of rock and of the guitar industry, was that today’s criteria do not differ significantly from the characteristics of three mythical guitar models. This research will soon appear in a special issue of the International Journal of Art Management.

Combining print with digital media

Following my research visit in Finland (june 2011), the European Action Project proposed by Anu Seisto, senior researcher at VTT-Finland, has been accepted. This action is an exciting opportunity for exploring contemporary usages of diverse media. It offers the opportunity to draw a general landscape of users’ perceptions and firm’s practices. It is also aimed at developing future avenues for improving firm’s competitiveness and innovativeness.

See the current projects section for more information. Contact me if interested.

Millenials & search marketing

September 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

Using an online experiment and focusing on millenials, Yves and I went through the data in order to understand how message content in keyword advertising impacts click behavior. The obtained model explains around 20% of variance. The role of message content is confirmed and interaction effects are observable. Neutral message content appears to be preferred over commercial content.
Limitations due to age restrictions (millenials only) and the number of message contents that could be tested call for further investigations. Additional research and modelling efforts are needed.
Details about this study are forthcoming in the Journal of Retailing & Consumer Services.
