Abstract [en]

Because of the adaptation to technological and social changes, the advertising environment is constantly evolving and today the central part of online advertising is called Programmatic advertising. It’s an automated media buying technique that involves targeting individual consumers in real-time. However, previous research shows that high frequency is one of the most important issues within programmatic advertising and not all ads bought programmatically is in frame of a good frequency. Furthermore, theories indicate that frequency influences consumers’ attitudes towards advertising, which lead to our research question: “How does high frequency exposure affect consumers’ attitudes towards programmatic advertising?” The purpose of this research is therefore to get a deeper understanding of how highly frequent exposure of programmatic advertising affect consumers’ attitudes towards it. We found that Irritation, Invasiveness, Likeability of relevance and Recognition are terms examined in previous studies related to individually targeted advertising or frequently exposed advertising. In order to carry out an explanatory research, we measured these variables including frequency with a quantitative survey and made statistical calculations such as correlation and regression analyses to see if our hypotheses were supported. The analyses indicated average causal relationships between Frequency and Irritation as well as between Frequency and Likeability of relevance whereas the causal relationships between Frequency and the other two variables were weak. We concluded based on our study that highly frequent exposed programmatic advertising is affecting consumer attitudes both positively with relevance, and negatively causing irritation. However, the relevance that comes with programmatic advertising generates a stronger feeling of likeability than of irritation. 

Abstract [sv]

Annonsering utvecklas ständigt, främst genom anpassning till tekniska och sociala förändringar, och idag kallas den centrala delen av onlineannonsering för Programmatisk annonsering. Det är en automatiserad metod för att köpa individuellt riktade annonser i realtid. Tidigare forskning visar dock att hög frekvens är ett av de viktigaste problemen inom programmatisk annonsering. Vidare indikerar tidigare teorier att frekvens influerar konsumenters attityder gentemot annonsering vilket ledde fram till vår problemformulering: “Hur påverkar hög frekvens av programmatisk annonsering konsumenters attityder?”. Vårt syfte med uppsatsen var därmed att få en djupare förståelse för hur frekvent exponering av programmatisk annonsering påverkar konsumenters attityder mot det. Vi konstaterade att Irritation, Inkräktande, Relevans och Igenkännande är termer som är granskade i tidigare forskning relaterat till individuell riktning av annonsering eller frekvent annonsering. För att kunna genomföra en förklarande undersökning mätte vi dessa variabler samt Frekvens i ett kvantitativt frågeformulär och gjorde statistiska uträkningar som korrelation - och regressionsanalyser för att se om vi har stöd för våra hypoteser. Analyserna indikerade ett medelstarkt kausalt samband mellan Frekvens och Irritation samt mellan Frekvens och Relevans medan de kausala sambanden mellan Frekvens och de två andra variablerna var svagt. Baserat på vår studie kunde vi dra slutsatsen att frekvent exponering av programmatisk annonsering påverkar konsumenters attityder både positivt genom relevans och negativt genom skapandet av irritation. Relevansen som kommer med programmatisk annonsering genererade dock högre uppskattning än känslan av irritation.
