Date: February 7, 2019

Topics and Authors:
- Does a Customer on the Board of Directors Affect Business-to-Business Firm Performance?
- Presenters: Michael Ahearne (University of Houston) and Raghu Bommaraju (Iowa State University)
- Summary: “Improve the customer experience” is the rallying call of companies everywhere. Leaders know that a better customer experience drives sales, increases retention, and decreases price sensitivity. Companies go to great lengths to gain insight into their customers’ needs, using data analytics, surveys, focus groups, and interviews. One novel way to achieve this objective is to have a customer on the board of directors (COB), something only one in three B2B companies in the U.S. currently do. A new article in the Journal of Marketing examines this little-studied practice to determine whether having a customer on the board of directors positively or negatively impacts firm performance. Listen in for insights.

- “Does It Pay to Be Real? Understanding Authenticity in TV Advertising”
- Presenters: Maren Becker and Nico Wiegand (both from Cologne University, Germany)
- Summary: “Be authentic!” is the watchword of today’s social sharing era. In fact, a recent survey found that 87% of global consumers said it was more important for companies to be authentic than innovate (72%) or deliver unique products (17%). Is authenticity truly a driver of product sales? A new study in the Journal of Marketing analyzes 323 television ads across 67 brands and four years to measure the impact of authenticity on the sales of fast-moving consumer goods. Join the webinar for findings.

TPM conference deadline for JM Special Issue on “New Technologies and Marketing” is January 15, 2019
Edited by Page Moreau, Donna Hoffman, Stefan Stremersch, and Michel Wedel, this Special Issue will showcase scholarship that examines the impact of new technologies on important marketing-related research questions. New technologies, defined as those that are early in the adoption cycle for firms and/or consumers, can be studied from consumer, firm, competition, market, policy, or societal perspectives. Purely conceptual papers are welcome as are papers using any methodological approach. It is crucial that the papers address a real-world marketing question but the focus can be on the consumer, the firm, the market, competition, and societal/policy issues. Papers that develop incremental methodological or theoretical contributions to address highly specific, tactical, technical, or operational marketing problems are not a good fit with the Special Issue, nor are papers that simply apply current state-of-the-art methodologies (e.g., machine learning) to marketing problems.
The Journal of Marketing is collaborating with the 2019 Theory + Practice in Marketing (TPM) conference, hosted by Columbia University (May 16-18, 2019). The topics of the conference will be organized around the same topics of this Special Issue. The conference will be designed to offer authors feedback on their ideas and papers before submitting to the Special Issue. TPM submission details can be found here. Papers may be submitted to the Special Issue even if they are not part of the TPM conference. However, attendance at the conference is encouraged.
- TPM conference submission deadline: January 15, 2019
- TPM conference, Columbia University: May 16-18, 2019
- Special Issue submission opening: June 15, 2019
- Special Issue submission deadline: September 1, 2019
