Immediate and Delayed Post-Consumption Evaluations and Consumer Loyalty: a Study Based on the Hedonic and Utilitarian Dimensions

As validated by previous studies and documents, the hedonic and utilitarian dimensions of products induce a post-consumption disparity of emotional evaluations, thus an evaluative distinction in consumer loyalty. Nevertheless, there has been a comparable scarcity in dynamic assessment studies from the time-dimension perspective. Through an experimental design, this particular study verifies significant differences in immediate and delayed post-consumption emotional assessments, further triggering a dynamic shift in the evaluations of word-of-mouth and repurchase intentions. The theoretical contribution and managerial implications are also addressed.
