Who Are You and Why Are You Being Nice?: Investigating the Industry Effect on Consumer Reaction to Corporate Societal Marketing Efforts
ABSTRACT - Corporations are turning to all forms of corporate societal marketing programs to help build, and in some cases, repair their brand images. Past research suggests that the cause-related marketing programs have both potential dangers and rewards for the firms. This paper investigates how consumers evaluate different types of cause-related marketing efforts in five different industries. The results suggest that the harmful nature of the firms products and production methods may influence the consumers evaluation of their cause-related marketing efforts.
