Increasing Attention At What Cost?: Consumer Reactions to Context-Sensitive Advertising

This research investigates consumers’ reactions to “context-sensitive advertising,” a strategy used by advertisers across multiple channels to increase consumer attention and improve consumer attitudes. Although advertisers believe in the efficacy of context-sensitive ads, there is little empirical evidence to support their beliefs. We propose and support that while context-sensitive advertising may indeed enhance consumers’ ad processing, it may do so at the risk of eliciting negative attitudinal reactions.
