  • Congruence and celebrity endorser credibility in Japanese OTC drug advertising

    Mariko Morimoto

    International Journal of Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Marketing   12   234 - 250  2018.09  [Refereed]

    Authorship:Lead author, Corresponding author

     View Summary

    © 2018, Emerald Publishing Limited. Purpose: Based on congruency theory, this study aims to examine the effects of celebrity endorsement on endorser credibility in Japanese over-the-counter (OTC) drug advertising using multiple celebrity categories. In particular, this research explored brand–endorser congruence and endorser–consumer congruence and their roles in attitude formation. Design/methodology/approach: A 3 (endorser categories: actor/actress, athlete and talent/TV personality) × 2 (endorser’s gender) factorial experimental design with 480 Japanese consumers was used in the study. Findings: In Japanese OTC drug advertising, actors/actresses and athletes were regarded as more credible than talents (TV personalities) by Japanese consumers. Endorser categories also had a significant influence on identification with the endorser through ideal self-congruency. Additionally, endorser credibility mediated the relationship between identification and advertising evaluations. However, it did not mediate the relationship between perceived similarity with the endorser and advertising responses. Originality/value: Little is known about the effectiveness of celebrity endorsers in OTC drug advertising from a source credibility perspective. This study attempted to shed light on the role of endorser fit in the framework of source credibility in drug advertising that usually places an emphasis on informational cues rather than peripheral cues such as source effects.

  • Information Contents in Japanese OTC Drug Advertising from Elaboration Likelihood Model Perspective: Content Analysis of TV Commercials and OTC Drug Websites

    Mariko Morimoto

    Journal of Promotion Management   23 ( 4 ) 575 - 591  2017.07  [Refereed]

    Authorship:Lead author, Corresponding author

     View Summary

    Based on the Elaboration Likelihood Model, the current study investigates information types that are cross-promoted in Japanese pharmaceutical advertising. The results from a quantitative content analysis of OTC drug brands' TV commercials broadcasted in Japan between 2014 and 2015 and their corresponding product websites (n = 150) show that Japanese OTC drug promotions feature more informational cues in the latter
    cues such as price, safety, quality, components, and guarantees/warranties are particularly prominent. Furthermore, product websites tend to focus more on rational appeals, whereas TV commercials emphasize emotional appeals. No difference is found between these media types regarding celebrity and noncelebrity endorser usage.

     View Summary

    This study attempts to identify the potential determinants of advertising avoidance in the context of personalized advertising media, including unsolicited commercial e-mail, postal direct mail, telemarketing, and text messaging. Using a self-administered survey (n = 442), the proposed model is tested with structural equation modeling analysis. The findings indicate that while ad skepticism partially mediates the relationship between ad avoidance and its three determinants (perceived personalization, privacy concerns, and ad irritation), both privacy concerns and ad irritation have a direct positive effect on ad avoidance. However, increased perceived personalization leads directly to decreased ad avoidance. © 2012 American Academy of Advertising. All rights reserved.

    Journal of Internet Commerce   8   137 - 160  2009.07  [Refereed]

    Authorship:Lead author, Corresponding author

     View Summary

    While e-mail remains a popular advertising medium for marketers, consumers' privacy concerns about the medium have become a serious issue. In this study, an online survey examined how two aspects of privacy-perceived intrusiveness and psychological reactance-influenced consumers' attitudes toward unsolicited commercial e-mail and marketing in general. The results indicate that the more intrusive an individual perceives an e-mail, the stronger their reactance will be against it, the more they will avoid it, and the more negative their attitudes toward it. Implications for marketers and academics, as well as suggestions for industry regulations, are also addressed. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

  • The Impact of Life-Stage on Asian American Females' Ethnic Media Use, Ethnic Identification, and Attitudes Toward Ads

    Carrie la Ferle, Mariko Morimoto

    Howard Journal of Communications   20   147 - 166  2009.04  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Significant buying power positions Asian Americans as an attractive market for advertisers. However, little is known about this group with respect to advertising responses and even less with respect to in-group differences. In this exploratory study, life-stage is identified as one of the potential factors that may differentially influence important advertising relevant variables for student and working Asian American females. The results of an experiment indicate differences between the two groups in terms of their ethnic media use, ethnic identification, and advertising evaluations. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

  • Examining the influence of culture on perceived source credibility of asian americans & the mediating role of similarity

    Journal of Current Issues and Research in Advertising   30   49 - 60  2008.01  [Refereed]

    Authorship:Lead author, Corresponding author

     View Summary

    The current study examines some of the cultural influences for Asian Americans on perceived model credibility. Specifically, the effects of racial congruency and ethnic identification are examined between consumers and ad stimuli as well as the role that similarity plays in the process. The findings reveal that model-consumer racial congruency is an important consideration for enhancing source credibility. However, similarity with the model in terms of values and cultural background was found to mediate the relationship. In contrast to other ethnic groups, strength of ethnic identification did not have a significant impact on Asian Americans' perceptions of source credibility. © 2008 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

  • Effects of media formats on emotions and impulse buying intent

    T Adelaar, S Chang, KM Lancendorfer, B Lee, M Morimoto

    JOURNAL OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY   18 ( 4 ) 247 - 266  2003.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    One way of generating revenue from broadband media content rests upon the assumption that multi-media content may trigger a greater intent to buy products and services impulsively. An experiment was performed in order to explore the effects of media formats on the emotions and impulse buying intentions for music compact discs (CDs). Three distinct media formats of World Wide Web pages were set up: (1) the text of the lyrics, (2) still images from the song's music video and (3) the music video itself. Each had a varying degree of visual/verbal intensity while simultaneously playing the soundtrack in all three conditions. The results of this study indicate that displaying the text of the lyrics had a greater effect on the impulse buying intent than showing still images of the music video. In addition, different media formats caused emotional responses that can explain the participant's impulse buying intent to buy the CD. Unexpectedly, the still images and video did not necessarily generate more buying intention than combinations of the text and music. Therefore, it is recommended that electronic commerce and marketing managers explore innovative ways of integrating visual and verbal media formats for eliciting an effective consumer response.

     View Summary

    Based on Psychological Reactance framework, the current study explored consumers’ privacy concerns and responses to personalized advertising on social media through personal interviews, an online survey and an experiment. The findings indicated that as consumers age, their online privacy concerns become intensified. Also, privacy concerns mediated the relationship between consumers’ personal information control and ad avoidance as well as perceived ad intrusiveness. Additionally, the degree of personal information used in ads and social media platform types had an interaction effect on advertising evaluations. The results have been presented at international conferences, and several manuscripts are under review for publication in international journals.

     View Summary

    In this study, the effect of celebrity endorsement on perceived source credibility and brand evaluations in OTC drug advertising in Japan, as well as the current state of celebrity use, has been closely examined.
    The results indicated that OTC drug ads tended to feature more actors/actresses than athletes and“talents.” Also, among the three sub-components of perceived source credibility, attractiveness and trustworthiness were the significant influential factors on advertising and brand evaluations. While actors/actresses were regarded as relatively dissimilar, they were also considered the most identifiable category of celebrities by participants in the study.
