Beyond Demographics and Stereotypes: Effects of Urban Identification on Responses to Actor Race in Advertising
The current study examines the effects of urban identification on majority population responses to ads and finds that non-urban identifiers prefer ads featuring white actors; however, majority urban identifiers prefer ads featuring black actors. Results call into question current advertising industry belief and practice, which focuses on demographics – specifically race – as opposed to lifestyle – specifically urban identification - as the basis for market segmentation and ad strategy.
