The Role of Advertising in Motivating Consumer Brand Preference for Banking Services in Eco bank Nigeria Ltd

Concerned for the stiff competition in the banking industry, this study set out to determine the role of advertising in motivating consumers’ preference for the Eco bank brand, using the Hotel Presidential branch of the bank in Port Harcourt as a test case. The survey research used the availability sampling technique to draw a sample of 200 subjects from the customers’ population of 2,700 to participate in the study. The data gathered with a questionnaire were analyzed with percentages, frequency distribution tables; weighted mean scores (WMS) and the chi-square. The findings showed, among other things, that advertising is the most motivating factor for the consumer’s preference for Eco bank as a brand and for the consumers’ purchasing power of Eco bank advertised products. From the findings, it was concluded that whereas advertising is the most motivating factor for the consumers’ purchasing power of Eco bank services, the preference for Eco bank as a brand is not significantly tied to their exposure to advertising messages, meaning that advertising is one but not the only factor in the motivation of consumers in their preference for the Eco bank brand. It was, therefore, recommended that in planning any advertising campaign, Eco bank should not expend all its financial resources on that venture as advertising is not some magic wand to cause maximal interest both in Eco bank as a brand and in the bank’s products and services. A further recommendation was that the bank should concentrate on the use of television in any advertising campaign since of all the advertising media used by the bank, television proved to be the most effective.

Strategies of Drinking Beer from Traditional to Experiential Marketing – Bergenbier Case Study

This paper aims to discuss interesting experiential strategies of a specific European beer brand (Bergenbier) that maintained the balance between traditional and experiential marketing.

My hypothesis is that the relationship between both types of marketing should be analysed from two angles: either commercials no longer focus on product features, but rather on events; or the experiential market is very well mirrored in ads. Additionally, this paper points out the levels of brand development that succeeded in engaging consumers so much that they found a new way to spend more time together, thus building a community. The aim is to make a comparative analysis between traditional marketing promoted by 50 TV campaigns (broadcast between 2004 and 2012) and experiential marketing events during the same interval. Basically, this paper seeks to analyze the relationship between traditional and experiential marketing, relying on the examples provided by Bergenbier campaigns, and to improve experiential strategic modules (according to Bernd Schmitt, shortened to SEM) by explaining their cultural dimension.

Romanian Advertising between Specificity and Globalization. A Comparative Analysis of Local and International Brands

Advertising today has conquered national boundaries, reaching consumers everywhere; however, local commercials retain their cultural background, combining global and local features. This is the new “glocalization” phenomenon, or the specificity of globalization. During the past two decades, Romanian advertising developed spectacularly, making up for the time it was forbidden. Life-styles, consumer insight, economy and market dynamics changed the relationship between global and local advertising. Today, national advertising promotes surviving pre-Revolution brands, new, post-1990 brands, and international brands adapted to the local market. This chapter analyzes the local and global features of Romanian TV commercials for national and international brands according to the following criteria: positioning, visual/ verbal identity, social/cultural background.
