How Semantic Framing Influences Consumers’ Responses to Crowdfunding Campaign

This research examines whether using “want” vs. “need” in crowdfunding request can affect funders’ compliance with an appeal for contributions. For reward-based appeals, a “want” (vs. “need”) appeal should be more effective; for donation-based appeals, a “need” (vs. “want”) appeal should be more effective in eliciting contributions.
