Small But Sincere: 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 sincerity perceptions as they are perceived as doing more effort. This induces stronger gratitude and consumer intentions to buy the CM-promoted product.
