Brand Commitment and Size of the Consideration Set

EXTENDED ABSTRACT - This research focuses on the effects of brand commitment on consumers’ consideration sets. In particular, we investigate the differences between high and low commitment consumers on the size of their consideration set, and the possible reasons for the differences in size. We test three competing hypothesis to identify which explains the data best.
