ADV & PROMO RESEARCH o Any research that helps in the development, execution, or evaluation of advertising and promotion. 242 Fig. 7.1 -- Bernbach is on the record as being misunderstood by O’Guinn and others; Mr. B. believed: 1) one needs solid research to form the basis for developing effective advertising; but, 2) Research never comes up with a creative idea, it is what one does with the research insights that really matters. 244 Ex. 7.4 -- definitions of reliability, validity, trustworthiness, and meaningfulness RELIABILITY means the method generates generally consistent findings over time VALIDITY means that the info generated is relevant to the research questions being investigated.
