ABSTRACT

The focus of this study at inception was to evaluate, examine and explain the attitude of young mothers towards the advertisements of Maggi cube. Prior findings on consumers’ attitude towards advertising are mixed due to the dynamics and landscape of the advertising business and advances in technology. Hence the objective of the study was to explore how the adverts of Maggi as a brand has influenced consumers (young mothers) as well as their perception, behavior, interpretation, reaction as it relates to their purchase of the brand. Attitude is varied and has several components as its makeup. The selective influence theory and the hierarchy of effects theory provided the framework of the study. Five research questions were raised to provide scientific bases for the study and findings from the study provided answers to the questions raised. Survey was the research method and the purposive sampling technique was employed for the selection of two hundred respondents drawn from the population as sample for the study. Findings from the study revealed that consumers have a favourable disposition towards advertising which invariably means that advertising of products do have influence on consumers which in turn aid their disposition towards the product. However, it should be noted that disposition could be positive or negative, hence, advertisers should be more consumer sensitive.
