Online and Offline Advertising Media: Exploring the Antecedents to Advertising Trust

Breaking through the clutter of advertising to reach consumers is no easy feat. Getting consumers to believe and act on the messages delivered is even harder. By understanding which specific media and channels consumers are more trusting of, marketers can more wisely choose where to place their messages for the highest levels of efficiency. This study looks to create a conceptual model outlining the predictors of advertising trust so that marketers can choose an advertising medium based on their target audience. By identifying which sources are most or least trusted by a given type of consumer, marketers will know which channels to choose or avoid when determining their media mix in a campaign.
