Celebrity endorsements are a well-established marketing strategy used since the late nineteenth century (Erdogan 1999). While the strategy was first applied in traditional brand or product marketing (Erdogan
1999), it has spread to any form of marketing communication, including political marketing (Chou
2015), health communication, and the marketing of non-government organizations (NGOs; *Jackson
2009; *Young and Miller
2015). Current estimates indicate every fourth to fifth advertisement incorporates this strategy, though this varies across countries (USA: 19–25%, Elberse and Verleun
2012; Stephens and Rice
1998; UK: 21%, Pringle and Binet
2005; India: 24%, Crutchfield
2010; Nhật bản: 70%, Kilburn
1998; Taiwan: 45%, Crutchfield

Hence, many studies have been conducted to test whether consumer attitudes and behavior are changed by celebrity endorsements. So far, results have been summarized in three narrative (Bergkvist and Zhou
1987) and one quantitative review (Amos et al.
2008; see the Appendix for a summary of the
review). The quantitative review of Amos and colleagues focused on source effects of celebrity endorsers. In short, it asked which source variables (e.g., expertise, attractiveness) exert which influence on advertising effectiveness. However, it did not test whether the obtained effect sizes were significant, but solely tested whether they were significantly different from each other. Hence, up until now, there is no meta-analytic knowledge about whether celebrity endorsements actually influence
consumers’ responses, including the size of their influence. In addition, there is no knowledge about whether effects differ in terms of specific outcomes (e.g., cognitive, affective, behavioral). The reason is that Amos et al.
(2008) applied only a combined measure of advertising effectiveness. Furthermore, frequently claimed propositions like the match-up hypothesis or the proposition of stronger effects in the case of unfamiliar brands have
never been tested on a meta-analytic level. This seems particularly pressing considering the fact that practitioners frequently refer to such claims (Erdogan 1999). Besides, there are conflicting results of individual
studies, for instance, when it comes to the endorser’s sex or endorsement repetition (Bergkvist and Zhou 2022; Erdogan
1999). Last but not least, numerous studies have been conducted since the last quantitative review in 2004 (Bergkvist and Zhou
The present meta-analysis seeks to address these shortcomings by integrating research published through April 2022, by reporting average effect sizes according to various advertising outcomes including
respective confidence intervals, and by performing moderator analyses testing the impact of various endorser and endorsed object variables. In terms of methodological advancement, we apply multilevel modeling accounting for the dependence of multiple effect sizes and we estimate publication bias, both important issues in meta-analysis (Borenstein et al.
2009). Finally, we provide practitioners with empirically derived implications for how to choose the right celebrity and offer researchers an agenda for future research.
Following McCracken (1989), celebrity endorsements are understood as a marketing technique in which an individual enjoying public
recognition “uses this recognition on behalf of a consumer good by appearing with it in an advertisement” (p… 310). The effects of endorsements can well be explained within the advertising effectiveness model provided by Ladvidge and Steiner (Lavidge and Steiner 1961). Studies have mostly investigated celebrity endorsements according to one or more of the model’s advertising functions (Bergkvist and Zhou 2022; Erdogan
1987). Furthermore, the model has revealed itself as fruitful in a similar meta-analysis (Grewal et al.
1997). It enables a systematic organization of the analyzed dependent variables and moderators, and specifies their relationships (see Fig.
1). According to the model, advertising serves to influence three basic psychological dimensions: the cognitive, the affective, and the conative. “Advertising’s cognitive function provides information and facts for the purpose of making consumers aware and knowledgeable about the sponsored brand. Advertising’s affective
function creates liking and preference for the sponsored brand – preference presumably refers to more favorable attitudes. Advertising’s affective function, therefore, is to persuade. Finally, advertising’s conative function is to stimulate desire and cause consumers to buy the sponsored brand” (Grewal et al.
1997, p… 2). Important to note, we do not suggest that these outcomes necessarily take place in a particular sequence (i.e., cognition = > affect = > behavior). Following more recent advancements
in the conceptualization of advertising effects, we propose that each of the outcomes may be independently influenced by celebrity endorsements. In addition, all outcomes are assumed to be interrelated. They possibly influence or interact with each other (Vakratsas and Ambler
1999). This is indicated by the double-headed arrows in Fig.
Celebrity endorsement effectiveness model adapted from Grewal et al.

Cognitive effects include
awareness and knowledge about an endorsed object. Establishing awareness starts from creating attention and interest (Lavidge and Steiner 1961). Directing one’s attention involves controlled as well as automatic processes
(Kahneman 1973). Both processes can be influenced by celebrity endorsements. First, people who are interested in a particular celebrity are assumed to purposefully direct their attention to this celebrity’s ad (*Wei and Lu
2013). Second, people’s attention is automatically directed. Humans tend to give preferential treatment to stimuli that are related to their goals (Lang
2000). In addition, celebrities are well-known, resulting in more accessible representations in memory (Erfgen et al.
2015). This should foster automatic attention, too (Bargh and Pratto
Once a celebrity endorsement grabs their attention, consumers are assumed to become more interested in the advertised object as compared with a non-endorsed or other-endorsed object. This due to the fact that
celebrities possess inherent news value caused by their celebrity status (Corbett and Mori 1999). Since celebrities are generally liked, consumers also tend to be more motivated to assess what kind of object a celebrity is
endorsing. As a result, object recall and recognition is assumed to be enhanced due to greater message elaboration (*Petty et al. 1983).
In terms of knowledge, celebrity endorsements are assumed to influence the
meaning of the endorsed object (*Miller and Allen 2012) as well as perceptions about its price, its taste level, the risk of buying it, or the perceived information value of the endorsement (*Biswas et al.
2006; *Dean and Biswas
1982; *Friedman et al.
1976; *Young and Miller
2015). Based on the mechanism behind these effects, consumers are assumed to conclude that an object has a specific attribute when they perceive this object as paired with a celebrity known for this attribute (e.g.,
premium price with a high-class celebrity; *Miller and Allen 2012). The process can be conceptualized as propositional learning (De Houwer
2009). Consumers have experienced in their past that people frequently present themselves with objects they share similarities with (Elliot and Wattanasuwan
1998). “Once a relation between two events has been discovered in the past, it is likely that this knowledge is used to generate propositions about similar events in the present” (De Houwer
2009, p… 8). As a result, celebrity attributes created through celebrities’ role in society transfer to associated objects (McCracken
1989). In conclusion, it is proposed that celebrity endorsements influence consumers’ cognitions including attention and interest, awareness, as well as perceptions.
H1: As compared with non-celebrity
endorsements or no endorsements, celebrity endorsements evoke greater attention, interest, and awareness as well as perceptions more in line with the respective endorser.
Affective effects pertain to attitudes toward the ad and attitudes toward the advertised object. This influence may best be explained with regard to balance theory (Heider
1958; see also Mowen and Brown
1981). The theory explains a person’s desire to maintain consistency among a triad of linked cognitions. It follows that people generally strive for a consistent organization of their cognitive structures, experiencing this
state as most tension-không lấy phí. In the case of celebrity endorsements, the cognitive triad consists of the consumer, the celebrity, and the endorsed object or the endorsed ad, respectively. A consistent state is achieved if the consumer perceives the celebrity and the endorsed object/ad as equally valenced (i.e., as both positive or both negative) because celebrities endorsing an object are usually seen as positively related to that object or the respective ad (Erdogan
1999). Starting from the premise that researchers and practitioners usually employ likeable celebrities, it can be hypothesized that celebrity endorsements positively impact consumers’ attitudes toward the ad and attitudes
toward the endorsed object. Only then are consumers’ attitudes and their liking for the respective celebrity of the same valence (i.e., both positive; Heider 1946,
1958). Although there may be similar effects for likeable non-celebrity endorsers, these are assumed to be notably weaker. This is due to the fact that consumers are familiar with celebrities by definition. As a result,
relationships with celebrities are more affectional as compared with unknown non-celebrity endorsers (Dibble et al. 2022).
H2: As compared with non-celebrity endorsements or no endorsements, celebrity
endorsements evoke more positive attitudes toward the ad and the endorsed object.
Behavioral effects include purchasing or using an object (e.g., *Freiden
1989; *Kamins and Gupta
1994; *Roozen and Claeys
2010; *Siemens et al.
2008), sharing object information, volunteering, supporting a charitable cause, or voting for a political candidate (Myrick and Evans
2014; *Pease and Brewer
2008; *Wei and Lu
2009). Such effects are frequently explained with regard to the theory of planned behavior (Ajzen 1991). According to the theory, behavior is strongly determined by behavioral intentions. These are, in turn, influenced by consumers’ attitudes, the perceived subjective norm, and the perceived behavioral control. As long as consumers are able to exert the respective behavior (behavioral control), and as long as consumers do not feel social
pressure to avoid the behavior (subjective norm), attitudes largely predict behavioral intentions. The assumptions have been supported by various meta-analyses (Armitage and Conner 2001; Kim and Hunter
1993). Accordingly, the more positive attitudes assumed in H2 should lead to stronger behavioral intentions and respective behavior. Corresponding effects were, for instance, found by Fleck et al.
(2012) and Mishra and Mishra
(2014). We consequently hypothesize:
H3: As compared with non-celebrity endorsements or no endorsements, celebrity endorsements evoke stronger behavioral intentions and behavior.
Studies investigating the applied advertising effectiveness framework have consistently found that people respond differently to advertisements depending on characteristics of the ad, the advertised object, and individual characteristics (Vakratsas and Ambler
1999). This is frequently intended by the advertiser, tailoring advertisements to specific consumers and their needs (Lavidge and Steiner
1961). In line with this reasoning, we included various moderators within our framework accounting for the fact that consumers do not respond uniformly to advertising (cf. Figure
1; Lavidge and Steiner 1961). Following Grewal et
al. (1997), our analysis of moderators is limited to those that (1) are theoretically relevant, (2) provide a sufficient number of effect sizes, (3) show sufficient variance to test the moderation, and (4) are important to
advertisers. In terms of number of effect sizes, Higgins and Green (2011) suggest considering moderator analysis only if there are ten or more studies incorporating the moderators. Seven moderators met the criteria:
endorser sex, endorser type, endorser match, endorsement explicitness, endorsement frequency, familiarity of the endorsed object, and endorsement type of the comparison group.
Though endorser sex has generally been viewed as influential (e.g., Erdogan
1989), hardly any study explicitly addressed this variable in empirical research. Most studies have investigated either female or male endorsers (for the only exception, see Freiden
1984). “The dearth of research on endorser gender effects is somewhat surprising as persuasion research shows that men and women respond differently to male and female communicators” (Bergkvist and Zhou 2022, p… 11). Hence, meta-analysis seems especially valuable (Lipsey and Wilson 2001). Assumptions about possible effects may be derived from studies on non-celebrity spokespersons. According to Kenton
(1989), the credibility and persuasiveness of a spokesperson depends on four dimensions: goodwill and fairness (e.g., unselfishness), prestige (e.g., power, status), expertise (e.g., competence), and self-presentation
(e.g., confidence). Research has revealed women to be higher ranking on goodwill and fairness, whereas men outperform women on the remaining dimensions (Kenton 1989). As a result, male spokespersons were frequently more
persuasive than female ones (e.g., Cabalero et al. 1989; Whittaker
1965). Transferring this to the present context, consumers may perceive male celebrity endorsers as more credible due to higher levels of expertise and prestige (Cabalero et al.
1989). As a result, male celebrities are assumed to evoke stronger endorsements effects when compared to female ones.
H4: Male celebrity endorsers evoke stronger endorsement effects when compared to female
No study has explicitly investigated different types of celebrity endorsers. Instead, studies have typically focused on only one type. For instance, studies have explored actors, models, musicians, athletes, or TV hosts (e.g., *Dean and Biswas
2011; *Pease and Brewer
2009; *Wei and Lu
2013). By joining the results of several studies, meta-analysis can provide information whether certain endorser types perform better than others do (Lipsey and Wilson
Starting from the premise that endorsement effects depend on the strength of the relationship a consumer shares with a celebrity (McCracken
1989), research on parasocial interaction can provide insights. Specifically, studies have revealed that people tend to develop relationships with celebrities, merely known from the truyền thông, just as they would do with real
life persons (Dibble et al. 2022): Upon encountering a celebrity on television, radio, or the Internet, consumers may parasocially interact with the celebrity, storing this experience in a relationship schema (Klimmt et al.
2006). The more frequently a celebrity is encountered and the more intense each interaction experience is, the more likely a strong consumer–celebrity relationship is formed (Klimmt et al.
2006). Looking different kinds of celebrities, consumers are particularly likely to form a strong relationship with actors. First, consumers are audiovisually exposed to actors, creating a particularly rich experience,
and second, experience is usually based upon multiple encounters over a longer period: “Over time, viewers become familiar with characters and performers on continuing series and often feel as though they know these individuals as well as they know their friends and neighbors. The importance of characters to viewers frequently extends beyond the viewing situation to include the sense of having personal relationships with the characters, deep concern about what happens in their ‘lives,’ and/or a
desire to become like them in significant ways” (Hoffner and Buchanan 2005, p… 326).
According to McCracken
(1989), this exact type of relationship causes consumers to accept celebrities’ influence more readily. The following hypothesis is proposed:
H5: Actors elicit stronger celebrity endorsement effects when
compared to other types of celebrities such as models, musicians, athletes, or TV hosts.
Several studies have investigated the so-called product match-up hypothesis that assumes the effectiveness of celebrity endorsements is partially dependent on the degree of perceived fit between an endorsed object and the respective celebrity (Erdogan
1999). A good match may be an attractive model presenting cosmetics, whereas a bad match may be an athlete trying to sell a guitar. The process underlying the product match-up hypothesis can be explained with regard to
Social Adaptation Theory (Kahle and Homer 1985; Kamins
1990) or Schema Theory (Lynch and Schuler
1994). Social Adaptation Theory assumes that people use information sources as long as they facilitate adaptation to their environment. If a match exists between a spokesperson and a product on some relevant attribute, the
spokesperson becomes an information source of adaptive significance on which people may rely (Kamins 1990). Schema Theory posits that attributes of celebrities can be integrated more easily with existing product schemas if
the celebrity schemas match the product schemas (Lynch and Schuler 1994). Both theories assume enhanced effects in the case of congruence. Accordingly, several studies have supported the product match-up hypothesis (Erdogan
1999). We thus hypothesize larger effects for object–endorser congruence compared to incongruence.
H6: Congruent celebrity endorsers evoke stronger endorsements effects when compared to incongruent ones.
Explicitness can broadly be categorized into two modes: implicit and explicit endorsements. Whereas implicit endorsements refer to situations where celebrities simply use an object or merely appear jointly without overtly announcing their tư vấn (“I use this object”; *Miller and Allen 2012), explicit endorsements refer to situations where celebrities overtly express their tư vấn for an object (“I endorse this object”; *Miller and Allen
2012). To the best of our knowledge, no study has ever compared both modes; instead, they have researched either implicit or explicit endorsements. Though effects have been found with both modes, one mode may be more
effective than the other (implicit: e.g., *Miller and Allen 2012; explicit: *Dean and Biswas
2001; *Friedman and Friedman
1979). According to Russell and Stern
(2006), consumers infer the celebrity–object association to be of greater strength if celebrities explicitly express their tư vấn, signaling commitment and reliability. In addition, consumers may not even realize that an
object is endorsed if the endorsement is too subtle. We consequently propose that explicit endorsements are more effective that implicit ones.
H7: Explicit endorsements evoke stronger effects than implicit ones.
Celebrities may also vary in their endorsement frequency. Consumers are highly likely to encounter celebrity endorsements multiple times via various truyền thông channels, including TV, billboards, print advertising,
radio, and the Internet. Research on classical conditioning suggests that effects may occur as early as a single pairing of a celebrity with an endorsed object (e.g., Ambroise et al. 2014; Gorn
1982). However, other research suggests that effects tend to be greater the greater the number of pairings. For instance, Stuart et al.
(1987) increased the number of pairings from one to three, to ten, and eventually to twenty, revealing a steady increase in effectiveness. Although these results do not directly refer to celebrity endorsements, similar
effects can be assumed because celebrity endorsements are often seen as a certain type of classical conditioning (e.g., *Chen et al. 2012). The following hypothesis is proposed:
H8: Celebrity endorsement
effects increase with increased endorsement exposure.
Familiarity of the endorsed object
Next to the celebrity, the endorsed object itself may impact endorsement effectiveness (*Friedman and Friedman
1979). For instance, researchers assume stronger effects, with decreasing familiarity with an endorsed object (*Miller and Allen
2012). Object familiarity can be understood as the number of object-related experiences accumulated by a consumer (Alba and Hutchinson
1987). These experiences can be obtained directly and indirectly, such as through celebrity endorsements (Kent and Allen
1994). The more familiar a person is with an object, the more comprehensive his or her knowledge structures can become (Keller
2012). Given that consumers already possess a rich network of associations representing an object, attitudes, and behavior appear more difficult to change (Cacioppo et al.
1992). Accordingly, Ambroise et al.
(2014) reported stronger celebrity endorsement effects with unfamiliar compared to familiar brands. Similarly, Shimp et al. (1991) showed the likelihood of conditioning effects for unknown or moderately known objects, but not for well-known ones. We consequently propose stronger celebrity endorsement effects for unfamiliar objects when compared to familiar ones.
H9: Celebrity endorsement effects are stronger for unfamiliar
objects when compared to familiar ones.
Endorsement type of the comparison group
Investigating the effectiveness of celebrity endorsements through experiments, researchers have chosen various control groups. Frequently, celebrities are compared with a non-endorsed condition (e.g., *Martín-Santana and Beerli-Palacio
2013), an expert (e.g., Biswas et al.
2006), or an ordinary consumer (e.g., *Dong
2015). Less frequently, celebrities are compared with an unknown model or athlete (e.g., *Roozen and Claeys
2010), an employee of the selling company (*Maronick
2005), a quality seal or an award (*Dean and Biswas
2001), or an endorser brand from the same product category (*Sengupta et al. 1997). Studies typically apply one or two of these comparison groups. Thus, they enable assertions about whether celebrity endorsements outperform a single kind of endorsement or no endorsement. By contrast, meta-analysis enables comparisons across all types of endorsements simultaneously. Therefore, we can see whether celebrity endorsements outperform any other
kind of endorsement. We can also test whether specific differences in performance (e.g., celebrity vs. expert) are significantly different from other performance differences (e.g., celebrity vs. ordinary consumer). Marketing managers can thus gain valuable knowledge when deciding on celebrity endorsers, any other kind of endorsement, or no endorsement all. We consequently ask:
RQ1: Do celebrity endorsements differ in their effectiveness depending on the control group
A concise summary of the existing knowledge on celebrity endorsement effects can be found in Table 1. Looking the main results, celebrity endorsements are shown to affect cognitive, affective, and conative outcomes. Furthermore, most studies have looked endorsements of for-profit causes.
Results frequently appear to be mixed. In addition, some studies show no effects all. This meta-analysis will shed light on these mixed results by calculating an overall effect. In addition, mixed results can be clarified by adding potential moderators to the analysis. Furthermore, the meta-analysis will close gaps in the literature by investigating between-study differences that cannot be explored with single studies (e.g., endorser sex, endorser type, endorsement explicitness). Looking
the investigated outcomes, most studies have investigated affective reactions followed by cognitive and conative ones. Meta-analysis will provide insights about whether there are any differences in terms of effectiveness per outcome type.
Table 1 Summary of research on the effectiveness of celebrity endorsements
Full size table
Studies were collected from three
major databases (Business Source Premier, PsychINFO, Communication and Mass Media Complete). The search included all peer-reviewed articles written in English and published through April 2022. The databases were examined using the term celebrit* in combination with endors*, spokes*, or advert* in any available search field. The search resulted in 1025 articles. About 300 of them were quantitative studies, including content analyses, surveys, and experimental studies.
These quantitative studies were narrowed down based on the impact of celebrity endorsements on endorsed objects. Three criteria had to be met. First, only experimental studies were included because only they enable causal assertions (Shaughnessy and Zechmeister
1997). The studies had to compare an experimental group to a control group. While the experimental group had to feature a celebrity endorsing an object, the control group had to include the same object, either
non-endorsed or endorsed by a non-celebrity spokesperson. Studies that compared various types of celebrity endorsements but did not feature a non-celebrity control group were excluded (e.g., Ambroise et al. 2014; Kamins 1990). Second, the celebrities had to be actually existing celebrities, thus excluding studies that investigated the impact of fictitious and imagined celebrities, as their validity is arguably limited. Third, the studies
also had to report effect measures related to the endorsed object, excluding studies that solely reported measures related to the endorser (e.g., Cho 2010) or the general acceptance of celebrity endorsements (e.g., Becker
2013). In addition, a measure was considered only if it was possible to obtain least two effect sizes. Otherwise, the meta-analyzed effect size would equal the sole obtained effect size, rendering meta-analysis useless.
This resulted in 15 eligible measures: attention to and interest in an ad, awareness of an endorsed object (recognition and recall), attitude toward an ad, attitude toward the endorsed object, perceived credibility of the ad and advertiser, meaning transfer (in the sense of transferring a celebrity’s meaning to a brand), evoked feelings, estimated price of a product, taste of a product, estimated information value of an ad, planning to inform oneself more about an endorsed object, perceived
increase of knowledge, perceived risk when buying or using a product, brand choice, and behavioral intentions (intention to purchase or use an object, intention to volunteer, intention to tư vấn a charitable cause by spending time or money, and intention to share an endorsed object trực tuyến; cf. Motyka et al.
2014). No limitations were placed regarding the endorsed object encompassing any kind of object, such as product, brand, organization, behavior, or charitable cause.
Based on these
criteria, 44 manuscripts remained (the majority of the 300 quantitative studies were content analyses, surveys, or experimental studies comparing celebrities with celebrities). Eight of these (Chou 2014; Fireworker and
Friedman 1977; Freiden
1984; Jain et al.
2011; Ross et al.
1984; Sanbonmatsu and Kardes
1988; Veer et al.
2010) had to be excluded, as they lacked appropriate statistical information to calculate effect sizes with the formulas suggested by Lipsey and Wilson (2001). Beforehand, all authors had been contacted and asked to provide missing statistical information if possible. According to Eisend (2009), about 18% exclusion is not uncommon in meta-analysis, and it matches other meta-analyses in marketing (Brown and Stayman
1992; Szymanski et al.
1988). The remaining 36 manuscripts yielded 46 independent studies, coming to 10,357 participants.
Effect size calculation
The standardized mean
difference (d) was used as the effect size estimate according to the formulas provided by Lipsey and Wilson (2001). All available statistical information was incorporated (e.g., means, standard deviations, t- and
F-statistics, and frequencies). Since this effect size estimate has been shown to be upwardly biased when calculated from small sample sizes (Lipsey and Wilson 2001), all estimates were corrected for sample size bias
(Hedges 1981). Positive d-values indicated a stronger effect of a celebrity endorsement compared to a non-endorsed or non-celebrity endorsed message, whereas negative d-values indicated a stronger effect of
the non-endorsed or non-celebrity endorsed message. In total, 367 effect sizes were obtained. The ratio of effect sizes (367) to the number of studies (46) is the rule rather than the exception when analyzing various dependent variables (Eisend
2009; Szymanski et al.
Effect size integration and meta-analysis
Estimates were based on random-effects models. Fixed-effects models assume that all studies included in the meta-analysis are practically
identical, having the same true effect size. In contrast, random-effects models assume differing true effect sizes varying, for instance, because of different participants or treatments. Specifically, true effect sizes are assumed to be distributed around some mean whereby the studies included in the analysis are assumed to represent a random sample (Borenstein et al.
2009). This model was much more realistic, as participants and study settings certainly differed across studies. In addition, results may be generalized because the investigated studies are treated as a random subset of a
larger study population (Hedges and Vevea 1998). Several studies reported results that enabled obtaining more than one effect size per dependent variable. Performing a meta-analysis on these studies would violate the
assumption of independence of effect sizes and assign more weight to the studies producing more than one effect size. Previous studies mostly ignored these problems, aggregated effect sizes into a single effect size (or chose only one effect size per study), or performed the so-called shifting the unit of analysis approach (Cheung
2014). This approach averages effect sizes within differing units depending on the current research question (e.g., study as a unit or study characteristics, such as gender of participants as a unit).
these problems is clearly not satisfactory, the latter two approaches are rather broadly accepted (Borenstein et al. 2009; Cooper
2010). However, aggregating effect sizes or choosing only one effect size per study may strongly reduce the number of effect sizes, thus lowering the power of statistical tests. In addition, statistical information is
lost, resulting in less precise estimates. The same deficits apply to shifting the unit of analysis (Cheung 2014). Researchers recently suggested treating meta-analysis as a multilevel model to address these drawbacks
(e.g., Cheung 2014; Field
2011). The basic idea nests the effect sizes (first level) within the studies (second level; Konstantopoulos
2011). The resulting model then looks like Eqs.
(1) and (2):
$$ gamma_i=lambda_i+e_ileft( first level or within- study modelright) $$
$$ lambda_i=beta_0+u_ileft( second level or between- study modelright). $$
“Effect sizes (γ) in the ith study are predicted from the ‘true’ effect size for that study (λi) and some error (ei) (note that the variance of ei is the sampling variance of that study). The true effect size for a study is made up of the average population effect (β0) – which is the thing we usually want
to estimate in meta-analysis – and some between-study error (ui) (note that the variance of this between-study error is the heterogeneity of effect sizes across studies, which in traditional meta-analysis is denoted as τ2)” (Field
2015, p… 18).
Writing the model in a single-level notation results in Eq.
$$ gamma_i=beta_0+u_i+e_i. $$
In this equation, it becomes evident that the variance of an observed effect size (γi) is decomposed into a sampling variance component (ei) and the between-study error or random effect
(ui), as in traditional meta-analysis. However, since ui denotes a study-specific random effect of an ith study, the same random effect can be assigned to effect sizes stemming from the same study while effect sizes stemming from different studies receive different random effects (Konstantopoulos
2015). Consequently, all effect sizes can be taken into account without aggregation and loss of information. The dependence or independence of the effect sizes is explicitly modeled by assigning the correct random effect.
Furthermore, a third level may be introduced when estimating an overall effect size composed of effect sizes (first level) nested within different types of effect sizes, that is, dependent variables (second level), which are, in turn, nested within different studies (third level). The variance would then be decomposed into sampling variance, between-type of effect size variability, and between-study variability. This analysis is necessary for testing whether it makes sense to analyze different
types of effect sizes separately (between-type of effect size variability) and whether it makes sense to analyze our moderators all (between-study variability; Konstantopoulos 2011).
recommendations, all analyses were carried out using the rma.mv() function of the R metafor package (Viechtbauer 2010). A maximum likelihood estimator, the typical method to estimate multilevel models, was applied (see
Konstantopoulos 2011; van den Noortgate et al.
2014). Average effect sizes were estimated taking the random-effects perspective, and moderator analyses were performed applying the mixed-effects models (meta-regression). As the studies showed considerable variance in
sample size and some studies produced multiple effect size estimates, effect sizes were weighted by sample size and the number of effect sizes per study. Specifically, effects sizes were weighted by the ratio of their study’s sample size to the number of effect sizes measuring the same dependent variable within the study (Eisend
2009). As a result, studies reporting only one effect size received the same weight as studies reporting multiple effect sizes if their sample size was equal.
The moderators can be
grouped as endorser variables, endorsed object variables, and endorsement type of the comparison group. The variables were coded by two independent coders based on the information available in the manuscripts and complemented by the English Wikipedia pages of celebrities where necessary. Agreement was perfect except for endorser match, which yielded an acceptable Krippendorff’s alpha of .74 (Krippendorff
2004). Discrepancies were resolved by discussion after a review of the article.
The endorser’s sex was coded as female (0) or male (1), according to the description of the study
authors. Typical descriptions were male/female, Mr./Mrs., or he/she. If the manuscript provided no gender information, the endorser’s English Wikipedia page was consulted. The endorser type was coded as actor (0), model (1), athlete (2), musician (3), or TV host (4), according to the description of the authors. The authors typically described their celebrities by using one of the aforementioned professions. If the manuscript provided no related information, the endorser’s English Wikipedia page
was consulted. If the Wikipedia page presented various professions, the first was chosen.
The endorser match was coded as incongruent (0) or congruent (1), according to the description of the authors. Frequently used descriptions were not matching/matching, not fitting/fitting, or being incongruent/congruent to an endorsed object. Furthermore, some studies reported pretests explicitly testing the congruence of the endorser and endorsed object. The moderator was then coded accordingly. If
the authors used existing advertising, the endorser was coded as congruent because advertisers usually put considerable time and effort into finding a matching endorser (Erdogan 1999). The endorsement explicitness was
coded as implicit (0) or explicit (1) according to the description of the authors. Following *Miller and Allen (2012), the endorsement was coded as implicit when the endorser and the endorsed object appeared merely as
paired without the endorser explicitly announcing his or her endorsement (e.g., classical conditioning procedure or ad merely displaying object and celebrity). An explicit endorsement was coded if the endorser’s tư vấn for an object could be explicitly read or heard by the study participants (e.g., “I think XY is …” or “I love XY”). In addition, signatures were coded as explicit endorsements.
The endorsement frequency was coded continuously starting from one (1) and
stretching—theoretically—infinitely, though the maximum number of endorsements was 10.
Endorsed object variables
The familiarity of the endorsed object was coded as unfamiliar (0) or familiar (1) according to the description of the authors. Familiarity refers to whether the endorsed object was known by the participants. Typical descriptions in the articles were unknown/known, fictitious, or having a strong reputation. Furthermore, some studies reported pretests
assessing object familiarity. The moderator was then coded accordingly.
Endorsement type of the comparison group
We coded whether the comparison group perceived the object as non-endorsed (0; appearing without any tư vấn) or as endorsed by a non-celebrity spokesperson or organization. The endorsed categories were expert (1), an employee of the selling company (2), an ordinary consumer (3), an unknown model or athlete (4), a quality seal or award (5), a government
employeeFootnote 1 (6), or an endorser brand from the same product category (7). The authors typically described the comparison groups by using one of the aforementioned category names.
Testing first whether it makes sense to
analyze different types of effect sizes separately and whether it makes sense to analyze the moderators all, we calculated the three-level model (Konstantopoulos 2011). Effect sizes (first level) were nested within
different types of effect sizes (second level), which were, in turn, nested within different studies (third level). We observed no significant overall effect of the celebrity endorsements on participants’ responses (d = .04, 95% CI (−.09, .17), ns). However, highly significant heterogeneity was found among effect sizes (Q.. (366) = 1095.77, p..
Table 2 shows the meta-analytic results for the
most frequently investigated dependent variables.Footnote 2 The first column presents the average effect size for a specific dependent variable. The second and third column display subgroup results of this average effect size. They differentiate studies that featured a comparison group receiving no endorsement (second column) from studies that featured a comparison group
receiving an object endorsed by a non-celebrity spokesperson (third column). In addition, the third column specifies the particular types of endorsements received by the comparison groups. There were almost no average effects for any of the dependent variables. Only one significant effect size emerged. Celebrity endorsements positively affected consumers attitudes toward the endorsed object when celebrity endorsements were compared to a non-endorsed condition (d = .24; 95% CI (.04,

Moderator analyses were conducted for the dependent variables of attitude toward the endorsed object, attitude toward the ad, and
behavioral intention, all featuring a sufficient number of effect sizes to conduct the analyses (Higgins and Green 2011). Tests for heterogeneity revealed significant heterogeneity among all three types of effect sizes
(attitude toward the endorsed object: Q.. (116) = 372.67, I2 = 68.87%, p..
3 presents the results of the first meta-regression testing the influence of the comparison group’s endorsement on the effect size for attitude toward the object. The analysis was conducted only for this dependent variable. Only this measure allowed for the simultaneous analysis of almost all the moderator categories. The
category of employee of the selling company was missing because no study included both attitude toward the endorsed object and employee of the selling company. The comparison group’s endorsement is a categorical variable, so the moderator was dummy coded with no endorsement (0) representing the reference category (Field
2013). As a result, the intercept’s coefficient (Table
3), being significant and positive, represents the average effect size of celebrity endorsements compared to a non-endorsed group. The remaining regression coefficients represent the change in this effect size when the comparison group features some kind of endorsement instead of no endorsement. As seen in Table
3, the effect size decreased when the comparison group featured some other kind of endorsement, as indicated by all the regression coefficients being negative. However, the decrease appeared to be significant only when celebrity endorsements were compared to endorsements of an unknown model or athlete, quality seal or award,
government employee, or endorser brand. Subtracting these decreases from the intercept (.24), it became evident that the respective effect size was then negative in all cases. A separate test for significance revealed these negative effect sizes to be (marginally) significant for a quality seal or award endorsement, and a endorser brand (unknown model: d = −.32, 95% CI (−.73, .08), ns; quality seal: d = −.44, 95% CI (−.81, −.07), p..

Further meta-regressions were conducted to integrate all assumed moderators (Table 4). The moderators were entered hierarchically starting with comparison group’s endorsement (Model 1), followed by endorser variables (Model 2), and eventually complemented by an endorsed object variable (Model 3). For the
moderator comparison group’s endorsement, the categories were merged into two groups (no endorsement (0) vs. non-celebrity endorsement (1), as in Table 2. The remaining moderators were coded as displayed in the methods section. The endorser type was dummy coded with actor (0) representing the reference category. The results can
be seen in Table 4. As can be seen, the impact of celebrity endorsements decreased when compared to an endorsed comparison group instead of a non-endorsed one (Model 1, first column). Looking the endorser variables (Model 2, first column), we see that male endorsers performed substantially better than female endorsers,
supporting H4. Looking endorser type, effect size decreased when an object was endorsed by a model, athlete, musician, or TV host instead of an actor (the reference category). However, only a model, musician, or TV host performed significantly less well. Hypothesis 5 was thus partially confirmed. The product match-up hypothesis (H6) was supported, indicated by enhanced effects for congruent endorsers when compared to incongruent ones. By contrast, the seventh hypothesis was rejected, as
implicit endorsements performed substantially better that explicit ones. This is the opposite of what we predicted. Likewise, the eighth hypothesis was rejected as no impact was seen for endorsement frequency.

As seen the bottom of Table 4, R2
indicates that more than 91% of the heterogeneity could be explained by both blocks of moderators. This explanation was significant, as indicated by the test of moderators (QM = 82.11, p..
The combined impact of all moderators can be seen in Table 5. It displays the predicted d values and confidence intervals for an actor endorsing an unfamiliar object a single time
compared to no endorsement of the same object varying levels of the endorser’s sex, endorser match, and endorsement mode. Values were calculated with the predict() function (Viechtbauer 2010). The d values for other
endorser or object types (e.g., model or familiar object) may be obtained by adding or subtracting the respective regression coefficient from Table 4. Based on the results for attitude toward the endorsed object, the highest effect size can be expected for male actors, matching the object, and endorsing it implicitly (d = .90;
95% CI (.54, 1.25)). In contrast, the lowest effect size appears for female actors not matching an explicitly endorsed object (d = −.58; 95% CI (−1.02, −.13). It is important to note that female celebrities can likewise have a positive impact, for instance, endorsing a congruent object implicitly (d = .44; 95% CI (.20, .68)). Again, effect size patterns were similar for attitude toward the ad and behavioral intention.

Before starting the bias analysis, the effect sizes were aggregated within the studies. Publication bias analysis checks whether certain studies are more likely to be
published than others. Publication bias was assessed applying funnel plots and Egger’s regression test for funnel plot asymmetry (Egger et al. 1997). Figure
2 displays the funnel plots for attitude toward the endorsed object, attitude toward the ad, and behavioral intention. The x-axis indicates the observed effect size whereas the y-axis displays the standard error as an indicator of sample size (Borenstein et al.
2009). The funnel plots showed no evidence of publication bias in terms of smaller studies missing the bottom left corner (i.e., no evidence that smaller studies with minor effect sizes failed to be published). This is
further confirmed by Egger’s regression tests being insignificant in all cases (attitude toward endorsed object: t(28) = 1.86, p.. = .07; attitude toward ad: t(8) = .01, p.. = .99; behavioral intentions: t(15) = 1.45, p.. = .17).

Main findings and
The main findings are summarized in Table 6. The analysis revealed a zero overall effect of celebrity endorsements on consumers’ responses. Yet there were strong effects on some dependent measures and under some conditions. The main contribution of our study, therefore, lies in understanding the possible
causes of this variability rather than focusing on a summary effect (Thompson and Sharp 1999). This fits nicely with the notion of Lipsey and Wilson
(2001) saying that “contemporary meta-analysis is increasingly attending to the variance of effect size distributions rather than the means of those distributions. That is, the primary question of interest often has to do
with identifying the sources of differences in study findings” (p… 8f).

Different dependent measures
Surprisingly, almost no average effects were observed for standard measures, such as awareness, attitude toward the ad, or purchase intention. A significant and
positive average effect size emerged only for attitude toward the endorsed object. Furthermore, this was the case only when the respective comparison group was not endorsed. This is consistent with the meta-regression results assessing the influence of comparison group’s endorsement type on attitude toward the advertised object (Table
3). Celebrity endorsements positively affected consumers’ attitudes compared to no endorsement, and this effect was significantly lower and negative when celebrity endorsements were compared to an unknown model or athlete, a quality seal or award, a government employee, or an endorser brand. Hence, several low or zero average
effect sizes were least partially due to being based on comparison groups producing negative effect sizes and on comparison groups producing positive effect sizes. As a result, there were small or no effects on average. Interestingly, although effect sizes lowered significantly in the aforementioned cases (unknown model or athlete, quality seal or award, government employee, endorser brand), celebrity endorsements performed worse only when compared to a quality seal or award, or an endorser
brand. In these cases, the effect sizes were negative and significant themselves rather than just significantly lower (Viechtbauer 2010).
We integrated several endorser variables and
the properties of the endorsed object. Overall, the moderators appeared very effective in explaining the between-study heterogeneity accounting for 95–100% of the variability with respect to three key dependent variables (attitude toward the endorsed object, attitude toward the ad, behavioral intention). Moreover, all moderated effects came into existence when controlling for the other moderators (Field
2013). For the endorser variables, the impact of the endorsement frequency on effect size was investigated. Contrary to our assumption, there was no effect. This result contradicts conventional thinking that endorsements’
effectiveness is enhanced with increasing repetitions (*Till et al. 2008). Although endorsement effects have been found single exposures (Ambroise et al.
2014), advertisements are assumed to be learned more thoroughly when exposed multiple times (wearin), as long as consumers are not bored or annoyed by too much repetition (wearout; Campbell and Keller
2003). Wearout seems rather unlikely in this study, as the maximum number of exposures included in the specific analysis was five, and as “five pairings is not so many as to cause subject boredom but is likely to lead to
conditioning effects” (*Till et al. 2008). With the maximum number of five repetitions, the amount of variance needed to produce an effect of repetition was most likely too small. For instance, Stuart et al.
(1987) included up to 20 repetitions in their conditioning study to test for frequency effects. In addition, it was impossible to control for exposure time since most studies failed to report it. Hence, some studies might
have exposed their participants once but for a rather long time, while others may have exposed their participants multiple times in short durations. Both manipulations, repetition and duration, may have resulted in similar effects. Given these limitations, it seems premature to reject the frequency hypothesis. Instead, future studies should account for exposure time, too. These studies should also look for a possible suppression effect (Koch and Zerback
2013). Specifically, repeated celebrity endorsements may lead to enhanced advertising outcomes while the same increasing the likelihood of evoking reactance due to too much (forced) exposure. As result, increased
reactance may reflect negatively on advertising outcomes and suppress the positive effect of endorsement repetition. That is, the effect of repetition on advertising outcomes may be positive and negative (mediated through reactance) the same time leading to a zero total effect.
For endorser type, actors performed best followed by athletes and TV hosts, which were followed by models and musicians. The results were quite similar across the three dependent variables. As initially outlined,
the enhanced effects of actors may best be explained by consumers being exposed to them audiovisually as well as multiple times over the years. As a result, consumers are likely to develop stronger consumer–celebrity relationships (Klimmt et al.
2006). This is particularly true with a TV series (Hoffner and Buchanan
2005). In addition, actors may generally be more famous, least compared to models, which explains the comparatively weak effects of the latter.
Relatively strong effects appeared regarding the endorser’s sex. Male
celebrities evoked substantially stronger effects compared to female celebrities. We attribute the stronger effects to the male spokespersons’ greater prestige and expertise resulting in stronger credibility (Kenton 1989;
Whittaker 1965). Compared to all previous research (see Erdogan
1999), we are now able to provide practitioners with a clear effect direction. In addition to the sex differences, this study is the first to confirm the product match-up hypothesis on a meta-analytic level. Congruent
endorsers produce significantly greater effect sizes compared to incongruent ones. Interestingly, the hypothesis could only be confirmed with regard to attitude toward the endorsed object and behavioral intention. Both refer to evaluations or behavior directly related to the endorsed object. In contrast, no effect was found for attitude toward the ad. Hence, celebrity–object match matters when it comes to attitudes toward the advertised object and purchasing the object. However, celebrity–object
match does not necessarily matter when it comes to attitudes toward the ad. This is due to the fact that an object does not necessarily equal the style or imagery of its ad. Both may be completely different. Just think about a company intending to change the image of its brand. Employed ads will likely be quite different from the existing brand image in order to change the image. Hence, a match with an endorsed object is evidently of less importance when evaluating the ad because object and ad
do not necessarily equal. In addition, marketers and researchers usually test the match with an endorsed object and not the match with the advertisement itself (e.g., *Chen et al. 2012; Kamins
1990; *Kamins and Gupta
1994). Effects may arise when explicitly manipulating the match with an ad.
For endorsement explicitness, strong effects appeared, yet opposite the direction we expected. Celebrities implicitly endorsing an object
enhanced consumers’ attitudes and behavioral intentions substantially more compared to explicit endorsements. The Persuasion Knowledge Model presents a possible explanation (Friestad and Wright 1994). According to this
model, consumers develop persuasion knowledge throughout a lifetime of being exposed to persuasive communication. This knowledge is likely to be activated when consumers recognize a persuasive attempt. For instance, consumers tend to recognize persuasive attempts when messages “create the perception that the source was trying ‘too hard’ to sell his case” (Smith
1977, p… 198). Explicit endorsements then act as some kind of forewarning of the persuasive intent of the endorser. Consumers are more motivated to counterargue the endorsement in order to reassert their freedom (Petty
and Cacioppo 1979). This is particularly likely if the endorsed object is of high relevance (Petty and Cacioppo
Another explanation for this counterintuitive finding may be the fact that implicit endorsement are mostly perceived as merely conveying a celebrity’s personal object experience (e.g., by using a brand),
whereas explicit endorsements are perceived as conveying a clear recommendation to buy or use an object. As a result, implicit endorsements try to persuade their audience to a lesser extent compared to explicit ones. According to Pornpitakpan
(2004), this should enhance endorsers’ trustworthiness, leading to stronger effects (see Pornpitakpan
2004). Future studies should test whether implicit endorsers are perceived as more trustworthy and less likely to activate persuasion knowledge.
In terms of familiarity, celebrity endorsements appeared more
effective in the case of unfamiliar objects when compared to familiar ones. This result was expected and is in line with past research. Given that consumers already possess a rich network of associations representing an object, attitudes and behavior appear more difficult to change (Cacioppo et al.
1992). That is not to say that outcomes related to familiar objects cannot be influenced all. The influence is just weaker or more difficult to accomplish.
Theoretical and managerial implications
The hierarchy of advertising effects model by Lavidge and Steiner (1961), which was adapted from Grewal et al.
(1997), provided a fruitful theoretical framework. It enabled a systematic organization of all relevant advertising outcomes as well as the integration of relevant moderators (Lipsey and Wilson
2001). In addition, readers can grasp a glance which relationships have been tested and which relationships have been impossible to test, although they might be theoretically relevant. Future studies can precisely look
these relationships. Furthermore, the model—being a broad overarching framework—enabled the integration of various sub-theories to explain specific effects.
The match-up hypothesis could be supported on a meta-analytic level. The proposed congruency effect can be regarded as quite robust. However, it was not possible to test which of the theoretical explanations is more accurate. In fact, both may be accurate: a matching celebrity being an information source of adaptive significance
(Social Adaptation Theory) is also more likely to be easily integrated with existing brand schemas (Schema Theory). Instead of continuing to prove the effect, future research should rather look for its underlying psychological mechanism as well as boundary conditions. It still remains difficult to know which dimensions should be matched between an endorsed object and a celebrity (Amos et al.
The meta-analysis was also able to tư vấn the familiarity proposition. It suggests that attitudes toward unfamiliar objects are easier to change when compared to familiar objects (Cacioppo et al.
1992). That is due to the fact that attitudes are based on attitude-relevant information. If relatively little attitude-relevant information is available in memory, attitudes are primarily based on the information provided
by the celebrity endorsement, leading to stronger effects. By contrast, if consumers have access to a relatively large body toàn thân toàn thân of attitude-relevant information in memory, attitudes are based on the endorsement and information in memory. As a result, endorsement effects are comparably smaller (Cacioppo et al.
1992). Since ads typically feature familiar objects, future research is advised to look for factors boosting celebrity endorsement effects in the case of high familiarity (Kent and Allen
1994). Endorsement repetition or a particular strong consumer–celebrity relationship may present such factors.
In terms of managerial implications, marketers should consider the following findings when choosing their
endorser. The findings are accompanied by an assessment of their impact magnitude. Magnitude was assessed according to an effect size investigation from 300 meta-analyses (d .67: large; Lipsey and Wilson
2001), providing marketers with guidance when deciding on which of the findings to focus more.
Matching endorsers elicit more favorable attitudes and stronger behavioral intentions when
compared to non-matching ones (impact magnitude: medium).
Male endorsers elicit more favorable attitudes and stronger behavioral intentions when compared to female ones (impact magnitude: medium to large).
Implicit endorsements elicit more favorable attitudes and stronger behavioral intentions when compared to explicit ones (impact magnitude: medium to large).
Actors elicit more favorable attitudes when
compared to models, musicians, and TV hosts (impact magnitude: small to medium).
Endorsements of unfamiliar objects elicit more favorable attitudes when compared to endorsements of familiar objects (impact magnitude: small).
Celebrity endorsements elicit less favorable attitudes when compared to endorsements by quality seals, awards, and endorser brands (impact magnitude: medium).
In general, celebrity endorsements are
undoubtedly an effective way of marketing communication. They enhance attitudes and reinforce behavioral intentions, provided marketers choose the right endorser. Marketers have to make these choices carefully, as celebrity endorsements can evoke strong negative outcomes, too. Incongruent male or female celebrities may very likely result in negative effects when endorsing an object explicitly. Marketers are, therefore, advised to back these decisions with market research (Agrawal and Kamakura
Limitations and agenda for future research
A great advantage of meta-analysis lies in identifying significant gaps in the literature. Such gaps become visible when the meta-analysis cannot
report findings on a particular dependent variable or topic. In addition, a meta-analysis may leave blind spots because theoretically relevant moderators cannot be analyzed, as too few studies have investigated these. We discuss these gaps in the following sections.
Understudied dependent variables
The most important understudied variables pertain to recognition and recall, meaning transfer, and behavioral measures in general. Beginning with recognition and recall, only
about ten effect sizes could be obtained from the literature regarding each measure. This deficit is particularly relevant as marketers are frequently interested in favorable object recognition and recall employing celebrity endorsements (Erfgen et al.
2015). Moreover, the revealed average effect was close to zero (cf. awareness Table
2). This suggests no impact or a moderated impact of celebrity endorsements. Having robust knowledge of one or the other is vital to marketers. “A common concern is that consumers will focus their attention on the celebrity and fail to notice the brand being promoted” (Erdogan
1999, p… 296). Researchers have recently started to investigate this concern, concluding that celebrities might indeed overshadow an endorsed object (Erfgen et al.
A similar pattern appears when looking meaning transfer. Marketers frequently seek to transfer celebrity meaning to a brand to build or reposition its image (Keller
2012). However, research investigating celebrity meaning transfer is relatively scarce. It only started a few years ago, resulting in a limited number of effect sizes that could be obtained (k = 9; Galli and Gorn
2011). Though the existing studies suggest strong transfer effects, further research is needed, also specifying boundary conditions (e.g., brand familiarity, *Miller and Allen
2012). Finally, researchers should dedicate more resources to measuring behavior. As seen in Table
2, scholars only measured behavioral intentions. While closely related, behavioral intentions do not fully explain true behavior (Kim and Hunter
For the theoretically relevant moderators, our study could not integrate several moderators due to missing coding information, no variability within the moderators,
or simply a lack of studies. The advertising vehicles in which the celebrity endorsements were integrated present such a factor (cf. Table 1). Almost all the studies employed print advertisements or similar stimuli. In contrast, very few studies looked radio, television, or trực tuyến advertising, rendering moderator analysis
impossible (e.g., *Myrick and Evans 2014; *Toncar et al.
2007; *Wei and Lu
2013). This seems even more serious considering that more than 60% of global advertising can be attributed to television and the Internet (Bergkvist and Zhou
2022). Also, exposure time could not be included. Increasing exposure time enhances processing capacity, which may lead to stronger and more durable effects (Petty and Cacioppo
1986). Similarly, few studies provided information about the endorser’s valence (positive vs. negative), trustworthiness, attractiveness, or expertise.
Thus far, almost all
studies measured effects immediately after exposure. This is particularly problematic as advertisers are mostly interested in longer-term effects (Eisend and Langner 2010). In addition, various advertising studies have
shown that the effectiveness of advertisements varies across time (Bergkvist and Zhou 2022). For instance, Eisend and Langner
(2010) were able to show that a celebrity’s attractiveness exerts its main impact right after exposure while expertise exhibits its main influence in a delayed situation. They conclude that “effects on attitude toward the
brand can considerably differ depending on whether the measurement occurs immediately after ad exposure or with a delay” and that studies would strongly “benefit from including delayed measures in ad testing, particularly when they giảm giá with celebrity endorsers in the advertisements” (Eisend and Langner
2010, p… 543).
Underlying psychological processes
In addition, hardly any study looked the underlying psychological mechanisms of celebrity persuasion (Bergkvist and Zhou
2022). Instead, research was mostly focused on showing main effects or on looking for possible moderators. As a result, theoretical depth is rather low (Bergkvist and Zhou
2022). For instance, there is no clear knowledge about whether endorsement effects vary depending on high or low effort processing (Petty and Cacioppo
1986). The few studies that integrated processing style suggested stronger effects in low effort processing (*Dong
2015; *Petty et al.
1983; *Sengupta et al.
1997). However, several studies investigating other issues in celebrity endorsements found strong effects when participants fully concentrated on the endorsements (e.g., *Friedman and Friedman
1979; *Kamins and Gupta
1994; *La Ferle and Choi
2005). Further research is needed that clarifies this matter and looks for other possible mechanisms besides message elaboration.
Non-profit advertising certainly deserves
more attention because it has been steadily growing over the past years including politics, the health sector, or any kind of NGO communication (*Wheeler 2009). Yet research is still very limited. For instance, whether
celebrity endorsements can change voting behavior is still understudied (*Pease and Brewer 2008). Accordingly, van Steenburg
(2015) recently concluded a review by asking: “Are voters consumers? Can the two be treated similarly when it comes to marketing strategy and the marketing mix? Is selling a candidate the same as selling a car? Do
theoretical foundations of consumer behaviour hold in voter behaviour? […] As of yet, all of these represent untapped discoveries” (p… 216). The same applies to the effectiveness of celebrity endorsements in any kind of health or health-related communication as well as environmental communication (Boyland et al.
2013; *Myrick and Evans
2014; *Wu et al.
So far, the majority of studies has been conducted in the U.S. However, there is undoubtedly a strong interest in celebrity endorsements in such emerging
countries as India or China (Chou 2014; Mishra and Mishra
2014). And even though more and more studies are conducted in Asia, it has yet to be tested whether the same mechanisms that apply to Western celebrity endorsements apply to Asian cultures as well. Because a lot of aspects
of consumer behavior are culture-bound, culture-adequate methods are urgently needed (de Mooij and Hofstede 2011).
Finally, future research may also dedicate itself more strongly to
side effects or unintended effects. This pertains particularly to vulnerable audiences like, for instance, children or adolescents. It is widely accepted that childhood and adolescence is the developmental period during which human beings complete the process of identity formation (Lloyd
2002). Next to their family and friends, they frequently refer to mass truyền thông when looking for role models (Hoffner and Buchanan
2005). Celebrities depicted in the truyền thông and advertising can serve as such models given that they are considered relevant by consumers (Lockwood and Kunda 1997). This may pose a problem because children’s and adolescents’ understanding of advertising may not be as advanced when compared to adults. Specifically, past research has revealed that children do not necessarily comprehend the persuasive intent of advertising and constitute a
vulnerable audience, deserving of special protection (Kunkel 2001).
The study sought to quantify the effectiveness of
celebrity endorsements on a meta-analytic level across a variety of measures. The results showed a zero effect when averaging across all studies. However, we found strong attitudinal and behavioral effects when including theoretically relevant moderator variables. In particular, effects on attitudes and behavior were found to be strongest when choosing a male actor that matches the endorsed object and expresses his endorsement implicitly. Given the continuing growth of celebrity endorsements in
product marketing, politics, and health communication, the study provides essential knowledge to researchers and marketers.
Summary of the meta-analysis by Amos et al.
This meta-analysis focused on source effects of celebrity endorsers on advertising effectiveness. Analyzed source variables were negative information, expertise, attractiveness, credibility, trustworthiness,
likeability, familiarity, and performance. Advertising effectiveness was understood rather broadly, combining various measures of effectiveness into one effect size variable (purchase intention, brand attitude, attitude toward advertisement, believability, recall, and recognition). The actual analysis focused on the comparison of effect sizes according to the source variables. In addition, it was tested whether effect sizes significantly differ according to four methodological dimensions:
surveys vs. experiments; student vs. non-student samples; U.S. vs. non-U.S. studies; main vs. interaction effects. Thirty two studies published through 2004 were part of the analysis. It included surveys and experiments whereby the majority of effect sizes were obtained from surveys.
Compared to the present analysis, Amos et al. (2008) did not test whether the obtained effect sizes were significant, but solely whether they were significant different from each other (according to various source variables). Hence, no results were provided that enable the assertion that celebrity endorsements exert a significant influence as well as an assertion about its size. In addition, there were no results for
individual measures of advertising effectiveness (e.g., cognitive, affective, conative) because all measures were combined into one variable. Furthermore, Amos et al. (2008) neither accounted for dependency among the
obtained effect sizes nor provided results in terms of the performance of celebrity endorsements when compared to other kinds of endorsements. Last but not least, results are less clear in terms of a causal interpretation since surveys were included predominantly. We want to point out that we do not perceive our analysis as more valuable, but rather as focusing on completely different aspects as Amos et al.
