The effects of musical and voice “fit” on responses to advertisements
MetadataShow full item record
Research on musical “fit” suggests that listeners might recall more of a radio advertisement if it features musicalivoice content that corresponds with features of the advertised brand. This is because the musicivoice should prime certain aspects of listeners’ knowledge. Two studies were carried out to test this, each involving 5 specially prepared radio ads. The first indicated that musical fit enhanced recall of the products advertised, the brands advertised, and specific claims made during the course of the ad copy; and also participants’ ratings of liking for the ad and likelihood of purchasing the advertised product. A second similar study considered voice fit and found that this could also promote recall of specific product claims and lead to higher ratings of liking for the ad and likelihood of purchasing the advertised product. These results confirm that both musical and voice fit can prime certain aspects of listeners’ knowledge and also increase liking for ads, such that it might improve knowledge-based and affective responses to advertising. The theoretical implications of this are discussed in terms of the concept of involvement and what precisely is meant by musicalivoice fit.
