How the Order of Sampled Experiential Goods Affects Choice

Three experiments reveal that when evaluating a series of experiential products, consumers exhibit a recency outcome for desirable products, such that they express preference for the desirable product experienced second, but a primacy outcome for undesirable products, such that they express relative preference for the undesirable product experienced first. The underlying process is due to a recency effect, such that there is better recall for the most recently experienced product. The impact of the placement of an undesirable product in a series of two desirable products is also examined.
