Celeity endorsements help companies to position in unique ways and receive attention in market clutter which may engender positive impact on attitude targeting sales figure. Presentation of information to consumer leads to some form of elaboration which results in some evaluation leading to rememance or acceptance or rejection of a message. Many people may experience high or low elaboration when they encounter persuasive message. Elaboration Likelihood Model attempts to explain how attitudes are formed, shaped and reinforced by persuasive communication.

Buying is a routine affair for most of the consumers and tough competition have made consumers the king of the market.
