Millward Brown 2006 Methodology Quota’s set on media consumption 350 regular TV viewers 225 regular NP readers 350 regular TV + NP 125 non-regular TV + NP 350 who do not fit into consumption groups above Pre (N=1400) Post (N=1000 approx) Sample large enough to provide sufficient ad recognisers in the following groups: • Recognise TV only • Recognise TV + NP • Recognise NP Same respondents invited back …although some will not respond
Why do we need to speak to the same respondents in the post dip? The effect of any pre-existing brand biases was removed by interviewing the same people both pre and post the marketing activity. People who already feel more positive about a brand, or use it more, may be more likely to notice the brand’s advertising, and so recognise it on a survey (resulting in the‘Rosser-Reeves’ fallacy) We identified the different recognition cells only at post stage. We then tracked these people’s answers back to the pre-stage to see how much answers shifted. Media effects were measured by comparing the pre-post shifts on key brand health metrics among Ad Recognisers of each group: Recognise TV only, Recognise TV+NP, Recognise Any NP Even if people recognising both TV + Newspaper advertising were more favourable to the brand before they saw the ads, they still showed the greatest shifts in attitudes and behaviour after they saw the ads.
