Estimating aggregate consumer preferences from online product reviews
Reinhold Decker and
International Journal of Research in Marketing, 2010, vol. 27, issue 4, 293-307
Today, consumer reviews are available on the Internet for a large number of product categories. The pros and cons expressed in this way uncover individually perceived strengths and weaknesses of the respective products, whereas the usually assigned product ratings represent their overall valuation. The key question at this point is how to turn the available plentitude of individual consumer opinions into aggregate consumer preferences, which can be used, for example, in product development or improvement processes.
