Marketing communications (advertising, product placement, sponsorship), cross-cultural marketing (validation of marketing models across cultures) and consumer behaviour (consumer processing of health-related information, behavioural change, interactions between advertising, personal values and pester power).
You will probably not find these attributes entirely in one person, so when you are investing in a marketing agency you will have access to a team of individuals who specialize in each of these subjects, allowing you to get more value for your money.
Projects cover a wide range of themes ranging from the marketing department’s influence on organisational performance, determinants of marketing innovation, brand and product development success, and pricing, advertising and distribution effectiveness, to marketing information/decision-support systems utilisation, value co-creation by open innovation, and consumer evaluation and processing of product communications.
