The Effectiveness of Deservingness-Based Advertising Messages: the Role of Product Knowledge and Belief in a Just World

In 2 experiments, participants viewed a deservingness, hedonic, or utilitarian ad. We assessed ad effectiveness (e.g., ratings, purchase behaviour), belief in a just world (BJW), and product knowledge. BJW and knowledge interacted with ad type to influence ad effectiveness. We also show mediation for the interaction involving BJW.
