Consumers’ Implicit Mindsets and Responses to Cause-Related Marketing Campaigns

This research shows that consumers’ implicit mindsets, whether they believe that characteristics can change (growth mindsets) or not (fixed mindsets), influence their responses to cause-related marketing. We also demonstrate that benefits offered (for the consumer or for those in need) and firm–cause fit (higher or lower) moderate the effects.
