So how do colors really affect us, and what is the science of colors in marketing, really? As we strive to make improvements to online products, studying this phenomenon is key. Find some of the latest, most interesting research on the subject at the article link...

Thanks for sharing. I am curious if green equals the idea of wealth in all countries or if that is only in countries with green currency? That would be an interesting research topic if it hasn't been done yet.

Electronic Word-of-Mouth Impacts on Consumer Behavior: Exploratory and Experimental Studies

Electronic Word-of-Mouth Impacts on Consumer Behavior: Exploratory and Experimental Studies | ESP Business English | Scoop.it

ABSTRACT

Due to the growth of the Internet as a social media and channel of communication among consumers, electronic word of mouth (eWOM) has gained strength and attention from marketing researchers. This article aims to verify if eWOM affects consumer behavior and the possibility companies may have of managing eWOM by actively responding to comments posted by consumers. An exploratory and experimental study showed that exposure to comment (both negative and positive) impacts brand image. Negative-feedback management reduces the impact on brand image but did not change the impact on purchase intention.
