Consumers’ Endorsements For Companies and Causes: the Role of Symbolism and Visibility

In the present study, we examined factors that might affect consumers’ decision to endorse an organization. In particular, we investigated to what extent brand symbolism and visibility of an endorsement affected consumers’ intention to endorse. Moreover, we explored whether these effects differed for companies (for profit) and causes (non profit).
