Methodological Issues in Advertising Laboratory Experiments

This paper discusses seven factors that limit the validity and generalizability of advertising laboratory experiments. These factors include exposing ads only once to participants, which limits the validity of the results, and the use of a single ad or brand in the study, which limits generalizability. Examples are offered of studies limited by the factors discussed in the paper. The paper concludes with recommendations of how future advertising laboratory experiments can be improved.
