Communication Response Models

  1. 1. 3Communication Response Models
  2. 2. Chapter Objectives• To understand the basic elements of the communication process and the role of communication in marketing.• To examine various communication response models.• To analyze the response processes of receivers of marketing communications, including alternative response hierarchies and their implications for promotional planning and strategy.• To examine the nature of consumers’ cognitive processing of marketing communications.• To summarize an integrative communication response model from a theoretical and managerial perspective. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  3. 3. The Communications Process © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited

  7. 7. Semiotics• The study of the nature of meaning, asking how our reality – words, gestures, myths, signs, symbols, products/services, theories – acquire meaning.• Advertising and marketing researchers are interested in semiotics to better understand the symbolic meaning which might be conveyed in a communication. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited

  12. 12. Channels of Communication Personal Selling Personal Channels Word of Mouth Print Media Nonpersonal ChannelsBroadcast Media © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  13. 13. Receiver• The person or people with whom the sender shares thoughts or information.• Generally consumers in the target market or audience. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  14. 14. Levels of Audience AggregationFigure 3-2 © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  15. 15. Marketing to Different Audience Groups Mass Markets  Mass Communication Market Segments  Variety of relevant media Niche Markets  Personal selling or highly targeted media Small Groups  One message and medium Individuals  Personal selling © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  16. 16. Decoding• Transforming the sender’s message back into thought.• Heavily influenced by receiver’s frame of reference or field of experience.• Effective communication more likely when parties share some common ground. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  17. 17. Noise• Unplanned distortion or interference.• Examples include: – Errors or problems during message’s encoding – Distortion in radio or television signal – Distractions at the point of reception © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  18. 18. Response vs. FeedbackResponse• Receiver’s set of reactions after seeing, hearing, or reading the message.• Feedback is the part of the response communicated back to the sender. – Closes the loop in the communications flow and lets sender monitor how encoded message is being decoded and received. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  19. 19. Models of the Response Process © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  20. 20. 1. AIDA Model• Developed to represent the stages through which a salesperson must take a customer in the personal selling process.• Buyer is depicted as passing through Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action stages. – Action stage involves closing the sale, which is the most difficult stage, but most important to the marketer. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  21. 21. 2. Hierarchy of Effects Model• Paradigm for setting and measuring advertising objectives.• Shows the process by which advertising works, and that advertising’s effects occur over a period of time.• Consumer passes through a series of steps in sequential order, from initial awareness of product or service to actual purchase. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  22. 22. 3. Innovation Adoption Model• Represents the stages a consumer passes through in adopting a new product or service.• Potential adopters must be moved through a series of steps before deciding to adopt a new product. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  23. 23. 4. Information Processing Model• Assumes that the receiver in a persuasive communication situation is an information processor or problem solver.• Steps of being persuaded constitute a response hierarchy.• Steps are similar to the Hierarchy of Effects sequence. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  24. 24. Traditional Hierarchy Models are useful because:• They outline the series of steps potential purchasers must take to move from unawareness of a product or service to readiness to purchase.• Potential buyers can be identified as present at different stages in the hierarchy.• Advertiser can identify different communication problems based on each stage of the hierarchy.• They can be used as intermediate measures of communication effectiveness to guide future communication decisions. © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
  25. 25. Alternative Response Hierarchies Topical Involvement High Low Learning Model Low Involvement Model Perceived product High Cognitive differentiation Cognitive Affective Conative Dissonance/ Conative Attribution Model Low Conative Affective Affective Cognitive © 2005 McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited
