  22. 23. Central Route: Active Engagement Peripheral Route: Passive Change Exposure to message High involvement with product, message or decision Low involvement with product, message or decision Limited attention focused on peripheral, non-product features and feelings Strong attention focused on central, product related features and factual information Persuasion generally alters product beliefs, which influence brand attitude which influences purchase intention Persuasion operates through classical conditioning. Affect change, attitude towards the ad, and non-conscious belief changes led to a behavioural and attitude change Conscious thoughts about product attributes and use outcomes; considerable elaborative activities Low or non-conscious information processing; few or no elaborative activities
