Consumer Consideration Sets: Altering Memory, Brand Evaluations, and Choice

Nedungadi (1990) suggested that only minor brands within a product category will benefit from advertising effects of competitors. We speculate that his results may have been restricted because he used a limited set of brand categories, and his hypotheses were derived from assumptions of the separate systems account of memory (Kronlund, Whittlesea and Yoon, forthcoming). Importantly, his results are not consistent with the DRM effect (Roediger & McDermott, 1995), which suggests the most benefit would accrue to major rather than minor brands. We performed a re-inquiry into the work of Nedungadi (1990).
