Consumers’ response to weak unique selling propositions: Implications for optimal product recommendation strategy
Fabio Caldieraro and
International Journal of Research in Marketing, 2022, vol. 39, issue 3, 724-744
We use a multi-method approach (analytical model and behavioral experiment) to investigate product recommendations based on less-important attributes (weak unique selling proposition, USP). We consider multiple scenarios in which a recommender’s level of expertise (knowledge about product attributes and their importance) and bias (preference for the firm as opposed to consumers) operate as cues for consumers to evaluate the recommender’s message.
