Abstract

Based on the theory of mental imagery, this study aims to explore the impact of situational clues of the background of crowdfunding product picture on investment intention to purchase. The experiment uses 2 (product type: search product vs. experience product) × 2 (whether the product picture background has relevant situational clues: yes vs. no) inter-group experimental design. The data collected by questionnaire star is used to analyze the reliability and validity of the data obtained by the scale. The theoretical model is empirically tested. The results of the study show that when the product shows the picture with situational clues without relevant background to the product, the situational clues with relevant background of the product can enhance the investment intention; when the product type of the crowdfunding product is the experience product, compared with products, the situational clues with relevant background of the product will produce a higher the degree of mental imagery. The mental imagery is the intermediary mechanism of the influence of situational clues on the purchase intention. When the product has a product-related context, it can produce a higher degree of mental imagery, thereby increasing investment intention.
