Abstract

Examine the emergence of brand positioning strategies in advertising that parallel the growth of the global marketplace. The new construct of global consumer culture positioning proposed, operationalized and tested; How study results support the validity of the new construct.ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR In this study, the authors examine the emergence of brand positioning strategies in advertising that parallel the growth of the global marketplace. A new construct, global consumer culture positioning (GCCP), is proposed, operationalized, and tested. This construct associates the brand with a widely understood and recognized set of symbols believed to constitute emerging global consumer culture. Study results support the validity of the new construct and indicate that meaningful percentages of advertisements employ GCCP, as opposed to positioning the brand as a member of a local consumer culture or a specific foreign consumer culture. Identification of GCCP as a positioning tool suggests one pathway through which certain brands come to be perceived by consumers as 'global' and provides managers with strategic direction in the multinational marketplace.
