Easy Like a Sunday Morning: How the Fluency of Analogies Affects Innovation Liking

This research investigates how consumers judge innovations based on meta-cognitive experiences they draw from the processing fluency of analogies in advertisements. An online-experiment with 503 consumers tests the relationship between analogy similarity and processing fluency and the effect the fluency of analogies has on innovation liking and purchase intention.
