“Is Bigger Always Better?: An Investigation of the Impact of Screen Size on Consumers’ Responses to Brand Integration”
For the past two decades, scholars have investigated consumers’ responses to brand
integration in television, film, video games, events and music. These investigations
have focused on consumers’ acceptance of the practice as well as the resulting
memory and purchase behaviors. However, we are not aware of any investigations
that consider the impact of screen size.
As consumers begin to watch television shows, music videos and films on their mobile
devices such as tablets and smartphones, it is important to consider the impact that
screen size may have on consumer response to brand placement activities. Our
investigation will focus on comparing consumers’ memory for brand placements in a
television show watched on a smartphone, a tablet, a computer screen and a movie
