My Picture, My Product: Does Co-Creation of a Usage Experience Lead to Positive Consumer Outcomes?

Consumer co-creation is becoming a more common feature on retailers’ web sites. We investigate whether such sites’ transportation effects (versus cognitive elaboration effects) moderate the impact of image use. Using a commercial online service aimed at making collages using digital pictures, we find that the combination of narrative transportation and self-selected images can interfere with the formation of product attitudes and willingness to buy.
