A reassessment of the role of the pre-test in advertising research

Author: Peter A. Rusby

Abstract:

What I would like to do is to suggest that ad pre-testing (or "copy-testing") techniques can be simplified considerably and their efficiency greatly improved by a reassessment of the role which the pre-test should play in improving the effectiveness of advertising. First of all, I would like to discuss the question of the role of the pre-test and then the question of suitable techniques.
