Title
To Understand the Effectiveness of
Television, Hoarding, Newspaper & Online
Advertisements in Cross-Media Campaign on Consumer Awareness of Vodafone

Background
Advertisers are beginning to think holistically in planning and measuring advertising campaigns,
since the media that are included in the mix can also impact the success or failure of the
campaign. Media differ on a number of important characteristics - intrusiveness, sensory
modality, motion, and interactivity - that may affect not only the overall effectiveness of each
medium but how they complement each other across the stages of the consumer decision
process

Research Objectives
1) To derive the relationship between demographic variables & choice of tools of media.
2) To compare the effectiveness of cross-media campaign with reference to consumer
perception
3) To evaluate the performance of one media tool over the other media tools.

Approach to Problem
Hypothesis
H0: Cross-media campaign is not as effective as single media campaign.
H1: Cross-media campaign is more effective than single media campaign
H0: Demographic Variables & tools of media are not interdependent variables
H1: Demographic Variables & tools of media are interdependent variables

Research Design
The proposed research will have three stages.
The first stage will be to inspect existing sources to uncover the cross-media campaign
coverage figure & other useful information.
The second stage will involve qualitative research to provide in-depth information on
various forms of media types, the preference of media vehicles & their impact on public.
This information will help in formulating questionnaire in the third stage.
Because of the conclusive nature of the objectives, we will primarily use quantitative
questioning in the surveys. All qualitative questions will be left to a minimum for ease of
analysis and reporting.
