Marketing

1.  Do television advertisements influence consumer markets or do consumer markets influence television advertisements?
  
2.     Marc Gobe is President and CEO of a brand image creation firm.  In his book, Emotional Branding, he says, “Consumers think more with their heart or gut than with their head when choosing a product (p. xvi).”  Consequently, he argues, “a crucial part of a strong brand-presence program must be to build the relevant emotional experience that the brand provides at different points of contact with consumers (p. 186).”  Do you agree with Mr. Gobe’s statements?
