The Monetary Value of Conversational Value

This work investigates the conversational value of purchases and demonstrates that consumers find the opportunity to talk about their purchases worthy of their money. Results show that consumers are less sensitive to price increases of experiential (vs. material) purchases; an effect explained by the higher conversational value of experiences.
