The Cognitive and Behavioral Consequences of Considering Low-Fit Brand Extensions
We explore the cognitive consequences of evaluating brand extensions and find that evaluating low-fit extensions depletes consumers’ cognitive resources yet promotes more abstract processing. In support of our process, we find broadening one’s definition of “fit” moderates these effects. We conclude with a discussion of the implications for these findings.
