Salient Cultural Identities and Consumer Relationships With Culturally Symbolic Brands
Results from four studies demonstrate that a brand’s cultural symbolism impacts the strength of the consumer-brand relationship. Stronger bonds with culturally symbolic brands are more likely to emerge when cultural identities are chronically or temporarily salient. This occurs because identity salience heightens the valuation of culturally symbolic brands.
