Computational Consumer Segmentation and Brand Management

We leverage large-scale social media data, text data, and machine learning methods, to accomplish three brand management goals: identify consumer personality segments (Study 1), identify the themes associated with brands liked by those segments (Study 2), and show that consumers tend to like brands that “fit” their personalities (Study 3).
