D6. How to Boast Appropriately When Word of Mouth Flows Internationally?

The current research explores the interaction effect between "Prophase Word-of-Mouth" and "Boastful Communication Strategy" on consumers' purchase intention. Through two experiments we found when PWOM valence is high, managers should use a high-level "Boastful Communication Strategy", when PWOM valence is low, managers should use a low-level boasting strategy.
