JCDecaux Airports conducted a new study this past fall, testing how the choice of an advertising medium can influence consumer perception of a brand.Methodology:&#8226; Respondents were required to answer questions regarding product price and quality perception.&#8226; 500 survey respondents were chosen per environment (airport, transit, etc.).&#8226; Fictitious advertising campaigns were developed across a range of categories (fragrance, Scotch whisky, hotels and technology) and assessed on various media outlets such as airports, transit, print, TV and more.Key Findings:Brands advertising in airports are viewed as prestigious and of higher value.&#8226; Products advertised in airports produced the highest price perception across ALL categories (i.e. fragrances advertised in airports were perceived to cost an average of $45 compared to a mean of around $39).&#8226; Whisky and hotel results were similar; airport advertising drawing the highest price perception against other media types.&#8226; Ads regarding new technologies were ranked most prestigious when viewed in airports.The &#8220;World of Possibility&#8221; study solidifies that the airport transfers a perceived value onto any brand in the airport environment. Brands advertising in the airport will potentially be thought of as prestigious and of higher value. There&#8217;s something special about the consumer mindset in airports; without exception, seeing a brand on a panel at an airport makes a brand feel more valuable. Airports offer a trinity of factors that help elevate brands when compared to other media formats -- an iconic environment and architecture, a m&#233;lange of cultures and the world&#8217;s greatest brands. It&#8217;s a desirable marketing environment and indeed opens up a whole new world of possibility.JCDecaux North America, Inc. is part of JCDecaux Out-of-Home Media Group, an international media and communications company founded in 1964.
