MSCO has revised their estimates higher (from $0.80 to $0.95 for 2007) as the advertising and price elasticity in the PND market was even greater than they noted in their November 28th upgrade report.

Digital is the same but different
Operating in a brave new digital world doesn’t mean throwing out the basic principles of good marketing, argues marketing consultant Chris Grannell. I’m sick of being told about how marketing has “thrown out the rulebook” and how “marketing theory has to be rewritten”. The hypothesis appears to be that in a digital-enabled, post Facebook, microblogging era, everything has been suddenly turned upside down. This claim is false. That’s not to say that the impact of digitisation isn’t real and hugely significant. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that thousands of changes in business and society have together given rise to a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Impact of Advertising on Consumer Price Sensitivity in ...
In this paper we use Nielsen scanner panel data on four categories of consumer goods to examine how TV advertising and other marketing activities affect the demand curve facing a brand. Advertising can affect consumer demand in many different ways. Becker and Murphy (1993) have argued that the "presumptive case" should be that advertising works by raising marginal consumers' willingness to pay for a brand. This has the effect of flattening the demand curve, thus increasing the equilibrium price elasticity of demand and then lowering the equilibrium price. Thus, “advertising is profitable not because it ...
