The overall sequence should not be confused with the hierarchy-of-effects notion, which is essentially a theory about the communication effects step. Weak theory: According to this theory, the decision making steps for a consumer are awareness, trial and reinforcement. An overall brand attitude measure is used. Kelman, H.C. (1958), "Compliance, Identification, and Internalization: Three Processes of Opinion Change," Journal of Conflict Resolution, 2 (Summer), 51-60. Perloff, R.M. Indeed, in the low involvement/ transformational motel, positive emotion is the sole "benefit" associated with the brand, e.g., the exuberant portrayal of sensory gratification in the "Coke is it" commercials. It is their vulnerable behavior and attitude toward the brand that draws them together as a target audience for advertising. Krugman, H.E. In soft-sell advertising, the target audience does not form an immediate conscious intention to purchase or take action with regard to the brand. Robertson, T.S. and L. Percy (1983), Draft chapters for text, Advertising and Promotion Management, New York: McGraw-Rill, available from authors. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is also termed to as responsible business, sustainable, responsible business or corporate citizenship. The mediation of reality. Much planning stems from judgment and one of our purposes is to provide some theoretical input that will make these judgments more defensible and better reasoned. Beliefs, in low involvement attitude formation, are extremely polarized buy only weakly or tentatively held, subject to post-trial usage experience.] This is used when objectives are set to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats facing the organisation. The copywriter and the art director are asked to describe the exact emotion, or sequence of emotions, that they are trying to elicit in the audience in conjunction with the brand motivation. FIGURE 1 SIX-STEP SEQUENCE OF ADVERTISING EFFECTS The first four steps are the province of advertising as a communication process, along with the behavioral outcome of communication. Brand awareness is poorly conceptualized in most advertising plans. Returning now to the steps in the checklist, there is another frequently used tactic or set of elements that affects processing -- the use of a presenter. In hard-sell advertising, the target audience should form a conscious, immediate intention to act at the next purchase opportunity. The checklist asks for sufficient detail to enable a comprehensive advertising communication model to be stated while at the same time attempting to be short and explicit enough so that managers will use it (Little 1979). Brand recall does not occur in a vacuum. It is their vulnerable behavior and attitude toward the brand that draws them together as a target audience for advertising. The main brand recognition tactic is to emphasize the package and the name visually in the advertising. 14 Marketing: A Critical Textbook principal thinkers in marketing throughout the twentieth century worked there, and as such it is natural that we talk about these people, institutions and their theoretical contributions. Woodside, eds., Lexington, MA: Lexington Books. Presenters should be considered to "boost: communication effects when a "standard" advertising execution falls short of attaining the communication objectives. Thorson, E. and M.L. Managers operate with these theories or models, explicitly or implicitly, whenever they create, approve, or test advertising. Brand communication effects are conditional on brand awareness, and a brand recall measure (or a brand recognition measure) taken very soon after exposure in a test situation can product a spuriously inflated estimate of advertising effectiveness. These three dichotomies require different ad testing measures, as summarized in Table 5. Brand Attitude is the second necessary communication objective. For example, you see the Fab package and remember that you need detergent.) For example, an informational advertisement addressing the problem removal motivation might employ the sequence: disappointment + hope + relief. This article looks at how marketing and advertising professionals can apply the theories of prevention and promotion-driven consumers. Wyer, R.S. Table 2 presents a summary of the advertising tactics recommended for the respective types of brand awareness. The intended outcome of processing is to produce communication effects in long-term or semipermanent memory, which are "brand-centered." Already, therefore, we see emerging the alternative content decisions that need to go into the particular advertising communication model via the general checklist. Peter, J.P. and Tarpey, L.X. Studies show that the ads have changed a lot from the 1950s to the 1960s. A.I.D.A Model In Marketing Communication:-A.I.D.A stands for attention, interest, desire and action. (1982), Advertising and Communication Management, Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall. The option refers to the difference between "hard sell" (intention-induced) advertising and "soft-sell" (intention-deduced) advertising. Authentic emotional portrayal of the motivation. An intention to act is only experienced consciously, later, when it is triggered for a fraction of a second in the choice situation (Krugman 1965). David Hardisty, University of British Columbia, Canada B. Communication Objectives (Brand) Our approach utilizes five advertising communication effects (see Table 1 for definitions). Step A-2: Decision-Maker. Checking the research box means the manager considers that adequate research supports the input; if not, the manager still supplies the input but checks the judgment box. In soft-sell advertising, the target audience does not form an immediate conscious intention to purchase or take action with regard to the brand. McGuire, W.J. Related developments of this conceptualization of involvement can be seen most directly in the theory advanced by Ehrenberg (1974) and also Lutz and Reilly (1974), Smith and Swinyard (1982) and Finn (1982). Step D-1: Media Selection. Krugman's 1972 point that the first exposure of a fleeting broadcast ad allows only a "What is it?" The hard-sell approach, intended to generate an immediate purchase action intention, mainly is used with informational advertising. 1980) such as, "You can 't beat Crest for fighting cavities" (but you can equal it), and on the visual side, perceptually extreme claims are often made effectively by implication rather than explicitly and may avoid legal challenge (Rossiter and Percy 1981).] Adequate logical support for perceived brand delivery on the motivation. The next section of the checklist, Part B, differentiates the fundamental advertising communication models via communication processes. In our approach, a target audience is defined behaviorally and attitudinally as the group of people (or households, companies or retailers) from whom sales are expected to come. However, the classification depends on the target audience for the brand. A further limitation is imposed by (iv) high effective frequency, which is discussed in connection with media scheduling. Media exposure schedule. 1 INTRODUCTION Companies’ advertising spendings increase every year. Fennell, G. (1975), "Motivation Research Revisited," Journal of Advertising Research, 15 (June), 23-27. Secondly, four fundamental brand attitude strategies are described which, together with two prior types of brand awareness alternatives, produces a total of eight basic advertising communication models. For example, communication effects (Step 3) may be salient in the audience's mind before the ad is processed (Step 2). However, this seems backwards operationally, in that correct concepts should surely precede consideration of extant measures. Journal Journal of Professional Services Marketing Volume 7, 1991 - Issue 2. Today is the age of digital marketing, every nook and corner of the world is getting connected with the help of the advanced forms of digital media. Certain ads misrepresent and misguide the consumers. For ads based on the transformational brand attitude strategy, a high quality version of the test ad is required. and Cacioppo, J.T. Here is what they are asked to do. Open-ended responses are then coded as correct if they mirror or closely paraphrase the advertiser's intended message, i.e. Transformational strategies, in contrast, apply when the brand is linked to one of the positively originated motivations: sensory gratification, intellectual stimulation, or social approval. Please see our Marketing Theories - SWOT Analysis post for a full explanation. Low involvement brand attitude registration depends on the perceived (learned) rather than the believed (accepted) message. Indeed, in the low involvement/ transformational motel, positive emotion is the sole "benefit" associated with the brand, e.g., the exuberant portrayal of sensory gratification in the "Coke is it" commercials. Target Audience Action Objectives (Buyer). Including emotional descriptions in the advertising communication model used for a brand makes explicit an aspect of advertising effectiveness that is almost always neglected by managers who focus only on approving written copy. It applies when the advertising must overcome a barrier to purchase resulting from the remainder of the marketing mix. Also "action" can include a variety of desired target behaviors on the part of distributors or consumers, such as sales inquiries, visits to retail outlets, and other forms of purchase-related behaviors whenever purchase is consummated by personal selling or other marketing inputs.] Market segments are based on the other "4 P's" in the marketing mix, such as product segments for different end uses, price segments for high and low priced brands, geographic markets for distribution, or customer sales potential segments for personal selling. A particular advertising campaign rarely addresses more than one target audience. Open-ended responses are then coded as correct if they mirror or closely paraphrase the advertiser's intended message, i.e. These theories or models attempt to explain and describe, at the individual buyer or consumer level, the process by which advertising communicates with and effectively persuades individuals to take action. Rossiter, 3.R. and J.N. or direct mail. In our approach, endorsement is not a separate strategy; rather presenters or endorsers can be used, with any of the advertising communication models, to increase Processing of specific communication effects that need strengthening. (1974), "Repetitive Advertising and the Consumer," Journal of Advertising Research, 14 (April), 25-34. Preston, I.L. Discontinuous innovations (Robertson 1971) invariably have to "sell" the category need in their advertising; new brand entries in a well known category may have to remind the target audience of the category to which the brand is aspiring; but established brands rarely have to address category need unless, as Campbell's Soup did recently, they are trying to stimulate category sales of which they reap a large share. Sheth (1969), The TheorY of Buyer Behavior, New York, Wiley. Miller, eds., Beverly Hills, CA: Sage, 67-99. The correspondence is noticeably higher for informational measures than for transformational or "image" measures.] Step C-3: Points to be Accepted. (1980), "Message-Evoked Thoughts: Persuasion Research Using Thought Verbalizations," Journal of Consumer Research, 7 (September), 151-175. Example:In a GUESS advertisement, Paris Hilton steps down the helicopter escorted by a helper or a boyfriend rolled into one… Methods, models and theories (A-Z) Share this page:. The tactical recommendations for the four brand attitude strategy variations of these models are summarized in Table 3. Finally, major implication for the process of pre-testing advertising are discussed. The DAGMAR Model ( D efining A dvertising G oals for M easured A dvertising R esults) also known as ‘Hierarchy of Effects’ model 7. Rossiter, J.R. and L. Percy (1981), "Visual Communication in Advertising," Columbia University, Graduate School of Business, working paper no. and L. Percy (1983), Draft chapters for text, Advertising and Promotion Management, New York: McGraw-Rill, available from authors. Ellerman, and M.W. They are based on true facts. Advertising is a completely adaptable tool with no boundaries that can serve the revolution as well as a corporation. When all factors inherent in the advertising communication models are considered, the media planner's choice of media for a particular campaign becomes quite circumscribed. SteP B-3: Brand Attitude. The creative department and the media department, respectively, can be left to construct specific advertisements and a media plan that will meet the communication objectives. It ignores what happens after the first purchase. Schlinger, M.J. and L. Green (1980), "Art-work Storyboards Versus Finished Commercials," Journal of Advertising Research, 20 (December), 19-23. There is no hierarchical necessity although the communication effects may in some cases be experienced at full strength in the numerical order shown. Low Involvement Versus High Involvement The testing of low involvement ads differs from the testing of high involvement ads in several ways. Whereas one (unlimited or natural) exposure is sufficient for transformational print ads, multiple exposures are necessary for transformational broadcast ads to allow them the opportunity to "build" their brand attitude effect. 51% men and 41% women smoked in 1974 Industry 2/3rds of smokers are addicted by 18 years old What was the ban and did it work? Segmenting consumer markets . Maslow's hierarchy of needs . These theories or models attempt to explain and describe, at the individual buyer or consumer level, the process by which advertising communicates with and effectively persuades individuals to take action. Smith, R.E. Ads touch our values, emotions, and the underlying beliefs. The main brand recognition tactic is to emphasize the package and the name visually in the advertising. Ray, M.L. In brand awareness processing, the target audience must learn the association between the category need and the brand, producing a subsequent recall response or recognition response as appropriate. 2), 3-15. The five communication effects may appear to resemble and perhaps to extend the notion of a hierarchy-of-effects, and it would be surprising if they didn't, given the widely acclaimed face validity of the hierarchy notion. (1981), "How Advertising Works," Mimeo, Chicago, IL: Needham, Harper & Steers Advertising, Inc. Wright, P.L. A full advertising communication model also addresses exposure of advertisements via the media plan. Step A-2: Decision-Maker. Brand purchase intention is usually a purchase intention but can refer to any intended action targeted by the advertising. Transformational ads depend on production values for contributing to the positively derived brand attitude, so a transformational ad should be tested in a version as close to the finished ad as possible. Failure to appreciate this fact has led to endless, fruitless debates among various proponents (such as syndicated test service providers) of particular advertising testing models. Most were synthesized from a thorough reading of various advertising sources, although there is a good deal of original speculation. Because ads consist of multiple elements, this means that a person processing the ad may be making, for example, an acceptance response to one element while simultaneously seeking attention to further elements. Step B-2: Brand Awareness. It is here that advertising communication models become truly differentiated. A generic structural checklist for advertising communication models is given in the Appendix. Rossiter, J.R. and L, Percy (1980), "Attitude Change Through Visual Imagery in Advertising," Journal of Advertising, 9 (Winter), 10-16. The brand attitude strategy classification produces four fundamental advertising communication models which, when combined with the two brand awareness alternatives described earlier, produce a total of eight models. A further note about the checklist is that the manager is asked to indicate whether the input for each component of the model stems from research or from judgment. Accordingly, a full advertising communication model will specify the two remaining levels: processing and exposure. Krugman, H.E. Colley, R. (1961), Defining Advertising Goals for Measured Advertising Results, New York: Association of National Advertisers. Measurement focuses on the target audience's own responses rather than the advertiser's intended responses. 231-A. In order to take action such as purchase of a brand, a target audience individual must: (1) have the category need, i.e., be "in the market" for the product class; (2) be aware of the brand as an option within the class; (3) have at least a tentatively favorable brand attitude toward it; (4) intend to buy it, although this intention may be quite latent or subconscious until the individual is in the purchase situation; and (5) experience no barriers to purchase facilitation, such as distribution unavailability or inability to meet the price or pricing terms. The other brand recall tactics are explained further in Rossiter and Percy (1983) where it is shown that personal reference increases brand recall by personalizing the association; that bizarre executions are a very effective associative vehicle as long as they do not detract from the brand's "image"; and that jingles, if they catch on with the target audience and elicit spontaneous rehearsal, are a very effective mnemonic device for increasing brand recall because music offers greater opportunity of unique encoding than words heard o; read in cows unaccompanied by music. Adequate logical support for perceived brand delivery on the motivation. Accordingly, the cognitive tactics for the high involvement models (especially the high involvement/informational model) are much more detailed than for the low involvement models. The discussion here is confined to conventional use of the respective media. Step A-1: Target Audience. What is a Response? In various disciplines, both in the social and natural sciences, various models and theories are being used to understand phenomena. A fourth distinction in the models relates to the exposure schedule for different types of advertising (Wells 1981). If social approval is sought because of personal anxiety, it comes under problem removal and is negatively motivating.] Also, because recall usually declines with time (mainly due to interference), brand recall in an at test situation can provide only a relative measure of brand recall awareness. In various disciplines, both in the social and natural sciences, various models and theories are being used to understand phenomena. (1969), "The Nature of Attitudes and Attitude Change," in The Handbook of Social Psychology, Vol. An advertising medium is the type of media or vehicle the advertising is placed on. This should not be used as a "cop-out" option by managers because, as we shall see, the advertising communication tactics differ markedly depending on whether the objective is brand recall or brand recognition. Advertising communication models have inherent implications for media selection and media scheduling. The checklist item 3-3 for brand attitude is divided into two sections. Lutz, R.J. and P.J. Ads mirror changing loyalties. In this last section of Part A of the checklist, the manager is asked to specify the target audience decision-maker's current rate of behavior in terms of frequency and volume, as well as the future target rate desired as an action objective for the advertising. Composition of a valid ad test therefore depends crucially on careful prior identification of a suitable advertising communication model. One of such theories/models is the DAGMAR communication spectrum theory (Karlsson, 2007). Although it may be contended that the two dimensions that form them are continual, thus rendering the classification artificially extreme, in practice it is comparatively easy to determine, especially through research, whether most of the target audience regards the brand purchase decision as within the realm of "try-it-and-see" (low involvement) or whether they would have to be convinced first before buying (high involvement). This is used when … These are of course the affective and cognitive components of attitude. A second distinction, also related to the informational-transformational advertising, is that in transformational advertising, it is essential that the target audience like the ad itself, regardless of its opinion of the brand. Cacioppo (1981), "Attitude and Attitude Change," Annual Review of Psychology, 32, 357-404. However, it is not yet reasonable to refer to these as alternative advertising communication models, since these decisions mainly refer to alternative targets of the communication rather than to alternative communication processes. The media defines the excitement and addiction by expanding and strengthening neutral responses. Step C-2: Points to be Learned. (1970),"Information and Consumer Behavior," Journal of Political Economy, 78 (March/April), 311-329. Journal homepage. Rather, our approach postulates a "heterarchy" of effects, at both the processing step and the communication effects step, as will be explained later. In contrast, in transformational campaigns, brand attitude continues to build with multiple repeated exposures (Zajonc 1980) until a peak or asymptote is reached; thereafter, continued exposures are needed to reinforce the attitude, especially in low involvement/transformational advertising, where attitude toward the advertising is a significant contributor to attitude toward the brand. Houston, M.J. and M.L. An advertising communication model should incorporate all four steps. In our checklist the manager is asked to nominate the decision-maker by role and by action (Webster and Wind 1972) as to whether the target audience individual should: propose the brand for consideration (initiator), recommend it (influencer), make the final decision (decider), order or buy it (purchaser), or use or consumer it (user). Kelly (1953), Communication and Persuasion, New Haven, CT: Yale University Press. The other brand recall tactics are explained further in Rossiter and Percy (1983) where it is shown that personal reference increases brand recall by personalizing the association; that bizarre executions are a very effective associative vehicle as long as they do not detract from the brand's "image"; and that jingles, if they catch on with the target audience and elicit spontaneous rehearsal, are a very effective mnemonic device for increasing brand recall because music offers greater opportunity of unique encoding than words heard o; read in cows unaccompanied by music. Four fundamental models with a total of eight paired variations are identified. Truly mixed cases on the informational-transformational dimension most often occur with high involvement/transformational advertising that has to provide information so that the prospective buyer can "rationalize" before accepting the transformation. The strong and weak theories of advertising are two different views on the role of advertising, Jones (1991) is quoted in both Fill, C (2013, 2009) books talking about the two theories. The ad blurs the boundaries between reality and a dream. The results of the exercise are of immense value to managers and researchers because they help to reduce the mystery (but not the magic) of what creatives are doing. Authentic emotional portrayal of the motivation. Unique Selling Proposition is the concept that brands should make it clear to potential buyers … Perch, C.S. Hovland, C.I., I.L. [Smith and Swinyard (1982) attempt to address the low involvement trial induction phenomenon with their concept of lower order and higher order beliefs. The first four steps are the province of advertising as a communication process, along with the behavioral outcome of communication. Information strategies apply when the brand is linked to one of the five negatively originated motivations: problem removal, problem avoidance, incomplete satisfaction, mixed approach-avoidance, or normal depletion. A suitable measure would be along the lines of: "In this ad, What do you think the advertiser is trying to tell you about the brand?" [Extreme claims are of course subject to legal substantiation. Finally, since informational ads are supposed to work immediately, it is appropriate to include a purchase intention measure. [Preston (1982) has made a heroic effort in proposing an advertising communication model that attempts to integrate most of the major syndicated measures. Bettman, J.R. (1979), "Memory Factors in Consumer Choice: A Review," Journal of Marketing, 43 (Spring), 37-53. Secondly, four fundamental brand attitude strategies are described which, together with two prior types of brand awareness alternatives, produces a total of eight basic advertising communication models. A full rationale for each tactic is given in Rossiter and Percy (1983) and the rationales can only be summarized here. The copywriter and the art director are asked to describe the exact emotion, or sequence of emotions, that they are trying to elicit in the audience in conjunction with the brand motivation. Marketing strategy indicates the company's approach to marketing. There are, however, two effects that are universal objectives -- brand awareness, and brand attitude. High involvement models are the more conservative or "safer" models buy they also require more complex and careful execution and, according to the theory, a high involvement model will be less effective if used when the brand decision is actually low involvement.
