Abstract:     
A common theme in the marketing literature is the acquisition and retention of customers as they trade-up from inexpensive, introductory offerings to those of higher quality. Standard models of choice, however, apply to narrowly defined categories for which assumptions of near-perfect-substitution are valid. We extend the non-homothetic choice model of Allenby and Rossi (1991) to accommodate effects of advertising, professional recommendation and other factors that facilitate the description and management of trade-up. The model is applied to a national study of an over-the-counter health product.
