Abstract (Summary)
The commercial called ”Africa” is a social marketing campaign from the Swedish national defense. The purpose of the campaign is to attract persons to make them want to go through with military or civil duty in a foreign country. The purpose with this study is to find out what the receivers decoding of this commercial. What do the respondents think that the Swedish national defense wants to achieve with “Africa” and how would the commercial look like to attract the respondents? The respondents was chosen by a so called “snowball selection”, and the empirical study consist of nine persons, both women and men, that has attended in personal interviews. Social marketing is about how to affect a target group to change a certain behavior. But one concept within social marketing is that target groups rarely agree with each other when it comes to opinions or responses, and it is because of this that the target groups should be divided into different segment. The conclusion show that “Africa” succeeds to create emotions at the receiver, but the campaign is not enough to reach all the way to the goal, the action. From theories about social marketing, KTH (emotions, thought and action) and the Seven Doors model, a question manual is created that are used at the interviews to further analyze to get to interesting conclusions about this social marketing campaign.
