Previous studies regarding the effects of interactivity on the web advertising are mixed. Many authors have proposed the positive effects of the interactivity whereas others underline its negative aspect in the online environment. The present study examines the product involvement and the motivation as moderators of the effectiveness of an interactive website under the light of the Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM) theory.
