Extending the Argument: A Case Study Exploring How to Decay Consumer Grudges in a Social Media World
The Journal of Consumer Satisfaction, Dissatisfaction and Complaining Behavior
We study the process involved in diminishing consumer grudges against an industry. Through a qualitative case study of an organization tasked with changing consumer’s negative perceptions and beliefs about the Canadian agriculture industry, we uncover how the process of decaying grudges involves presenting information, creating credibile sources, and building positive affect. Our findings extend Thota and Wright’s (2006) grudgeholding decay framework.
