Consumer learning is known to have beneficial outcomes for a company in post-purchase situations. Even though several marketing researchers have been suggesting the promising use of e-learning as a pre-purchase marketing tool for nearly 20 years, no empirical evidence has been provided yet proving the benefits of e-learning as a new sales aid.
