Guilt Appeals As a Blessing Or a Curse? Influences of Sponsorship Identity and Sponsor-Issue Fit on Guilt Appeals in Charity-Related Advertising

We examine guilt appeals in charity-related advertising with moderators of sponsorship identity and sponsor-issue fit. Guilt appeals are more effective than non-guilt appeals when a non-profit is the ad-sponsor. Guilt appeals backfire when fit in a corporate social ad is high, or fit in a cause-related marketing ad is low.
