The Effect of Positioning of a Target Brand and a Competitive Brand(s) in an Advertisement on a Consumer's Judgment and on the Selection of the Target Brand

This paper examines the effect of the positioning of a product in relation to a comparison product or products in a multi-panel table of a comparative advertisement. It is hypothesized when a sponsor places their product in the right panel and the comparison product in the left panel, respondents will react with a favorable evaluation for the sponsor’s product. We confirmed the hypothesis with four laboratory experiments.
