This study investigates the impacts of the usage of the mixture of media types on perceived diagnosticity, as well as the moderating effect of project complexity in the context of crowdfunding. Laboratory experiments are used to test the hypotheses. Results show that (1) perceived diagnosticity is a strongly positive predictor of the investment intention; (2) compared with a combination of fewer media types, a combination of more media types used in a project presentation leads to a higher perceived diagnosticity of the project presentation; (3) the effect level of the mixture of media types on perceived diagnosticity could be moderated by project complexity.
