Abstract (Summary)
The first company to send TV-commercial was the American company NBC, it was in the year of 1941. In Sweden, TV-commercials were first shown in 1987/88. TV 4 was the first channel to send commercial in Swedish television.TV has the advantage of showing both sound and picture, which makes TV the strongest channel of communication to mediate a message between a company and the consumer. Although TV-commercial is the most expensive choice to mediate a message, it is also the most effective one. (Persson, 1993)Almost everyone is exposed to TV-commercial daily. And as said before, TV is the most effective way to deliver a message to a receiver. So what is our experience of TV-advertising? Do we see TV-commercial as an annoying interruption or as entertaining? Does our generation, born in the 80´s, have the same experience as our parents’ generation? Do the advertising companies manage to trick us in to buying the products we have seen in the TV-commercial? And is there any difference between the both generations concerning our reliable in what the commercial tells us? This is some of the questions that we as authors have chosen to focus on in this paper.In general companies spend a lot of money on TV-commercial. And for companies that do, it is important to know that the message reach the consumers. In case a commercial is misunderstood and even rejected because the consumers experience it to be dull, it may lead to an economical damage for the company. Since we use our study to see a difference between generations, we will also know what attracts the generations. Our paper will help companies in their marketing communication strategy which also helps to prevent any harm to the companies finance.
