D9. Consumption Closure As a Driver of Positive Word of Mouth

Consumption closure affects consumers’ cognitive processing and WOM. Manipulating closure through packaging, consumers who experience closure (single-serving package), as opposed to those who do not (equivalent amount from multi-serving package), provide more positive WOM due to increased attitude certainty. Marketers may benefit by encouraging reviews of single-serve packages.
