van Laer, T., de Ruyter, K. & Wetzels, M. (2012). Effects of narrative transportation on persuasion: A meta-analysis. NA - Advances in Consumer Research, 40, pp. 579-581.


This meta-analytic review covered a decade of research on the transportation–persuasion relationship. Transportation occurs when consumers mentally enter a world evoked by a narrative. Story topic familiarity and transportability were the greatest moderators. These findings put a spotlight on the importance of the consumer in the narrative persuasion process.
