Effectiveness of advertisements using brand heritage: a construal level approach

This research aims to better understand how brand heritage can be effectively framed in advertising using the Construal-level theory. Three experiments examine how brand heritage is processed and what is the more appropriate frame for brand heritage in an advertisement (abstractly vs. concretely). More precisely, study 1 shows that brand heritage influences positively the perception of past temporal distance with the brand. Study 2 show that brand heritage impacts consumers’ construal level. Study 3 aims to examine the best way (abstractly vs. concretely) to frame brand heritage. This research contributes to the literature on brand heritage, it also sheds light on advertising practices.
