A Complete Consumer Journey: Tracking Motivation in the Marketplace

A field study and two experiments use novel methods to capture consumers’ dynamic motivation within a shopping trip. The results provide evidence that pre-trip planning manipulates consumers’ motivational reference points and moderates whether inter-choice time (i.e., the time between purchases) exhibits a linear goal-gradient trend or a curvilinear pattern.
