Sequencing Promotion and Prevention Features: the Moderating Role of Regulatory Focus
We show that mixing the promotion and prevention features of a brand (i.e., presenting them alternatively) instead of blocking them (i.e., presenting all promotion features first or last) increases the brand’s perceived variety among both promotion and prevention-focused consumers, but the difference in liking between the mixed and blocked feature sequences is higher among promotion-focused consumers relative to prevention-focused consumers. We suggest that the enhanced variety perception gives the impression that the brand is a change from the status-quo, and the desire for change fits better with the advancement goals of promotion-focused consumers.
