Dynamic cross-sales effects of price promotions: Empirical generalizations
D. VAN DEN POEL
In this research we use the framework of market-basket analysis and techniques from modern multivariate time-series analysis to measure and explain the dynamic impact of a price promotion on the sales of a complementary product. The large scale of this research enables us to derive empirical generalizations. We contribute to the literature in drawing the following conclusions: Firstly, we illustrate that using an intense promotion strategy, characterized by deeper and more frequent price promotions, has a negative impact on the cross-price effect. Secondly, we show that using the same brand name (umbrella branding) for two complements has a beneficial influence on the cross-price effect. Finally, we show that price levels of the products are important moderators in explaining persistent cross-price effects.
