Utilizing Eye-Tracking Data to Guide Managerial Decision Making

Analysis of eye-tracking data has been increasingly proven to help understand consumer behavior and generate insights that guide managerial decision-making. Eye-tracking data are especially useful in understanding and measuring consumer attention, information search, engagement, user experience and decision making. Indeed, eye and face tracking data is now ubiquitous because it can be collected via front facing cameras on digital devices. Companies are seeking to capitalize on that data to support a wide range of strategic and tactical marketing decisions. However, many industry studies stop short of providing more than heatmaps of attention patterns. Advances in analytical modeling of eye tracking data enables deep insights into consumers’ cognitive processes and enables prediction and optimization of the effectiveness of visual marketing effort. In this MSI event, marketing academics and industry experts will discuss the implications of eye and face tracking data for strategic and tactical marketing decisions including product, packaging, ad copy, and web site design, and product placement.
