VL / 45 - BP / 1 - EP / 15
The advertising literature and communications literature offer many (sometimes conflicting) media recommendations for the different types of products and services. We attempt to consolidate these media recommendations into a unifying theory-based framework, and utilize longitudinal media-budget data for 143 products/services in a major media market (Spain) to verify whether advertisers have conformed to the prescriptions derived from this framework. We also use this long cross-product history of media-budget allocations to study how advertisers reacted to economic (the Great Recession of 2008) and technological (the emergence of the Internet as an advertising medium) shifts in their media allocations.
