Augmented Reality Helps Low-Involved Consumers Build Self-Brand Connection

Augmented Reality facilitates consumers’ mentalizing of consumption experience by overlaying digital images of products on physical reality. Three experiments reveal that low involved consumers perceive greater self-brand connection after AR-assisted (vs. non-AR-assisted) shopping. This is because they perceive the brand as being more communal (vs. monetary-exchange-based) in fulfilling consumers’ needs.
