Abstract – This paper revisits four seminal models of how marketing influences attitudes: mood mediation, cognitive response generation, situational parameters, and task mediation. Extensions of each model, as well as a new summary model, are proposed based on research into online consumer behavior. The author integrates the models along various dimensions which are relevant to particular e-marketing issues, and identifies certain challenges to attitude formation research in this setting.
