Small But Moral: the Impact of Firm Size and Gratitude on the Effectiveness of Cause-Marketing Campaigns

We show the impact of firm size on Cause-Marketing (CM) effectiveness and the importance of gratitude that consumers feel for providing the donation opportunity. Smaller firms enjoy higher morality perceptions as they are doing a bigger effort. This induces stronger feelings of gratitude and consumer intentions to buy CM-promoted products.
