14-C: Claiming to Be Good in Parts Or in Whole? the Joint Effect of Ad Headline and Body Copy on Ad Effectiveness

This study considers ad headline and body copy as two distinct components of an ad and shows that their effects are interactive, rather than additive in terms of delivering product information. It also extends the classic hypothesis-testing framework by showing that hypotheses could be formed and tested within an ad.
