Abstract

We tested the influence of program-induced mood on advertising effectiveness at judgmental (product evaluation), conative (purchase intention), and behavioral levels (participation in a product launch event). Study 1 used a 3 (Induced-mood: positive vs. neutral vs. negative) x 2 (Brand attitude: favorable vs. unfavorable) design. Brand attitude had a stronger influence on product evaluation when mood was positive, compared to neutral or negative mood. Study 2 used a 2 (Induced mood: positive vs. negative) x 2 (Brand attitude: favorable vs. unfavorable) x 2 (Quality of product arguments: weaker vs. stronger) design. For positive mood conditions, evaluation and intent were influenced by brand attitude rather than by quality of arguments, reflecting top-down processing. The reverse was found for negative mood conditions, reflecting bottom-up processing. Study 3 focused on stronger arguments only, and assessed whether participants attended the product launch event. Results replicate Study 2's findings at both the judgmental and conative level. Furthermore, behavioral data revealed higher advertising effectiveness for negative mood conditions, because of higher elaboration of product information.
