‘High involvement/low involvement and rational vs. Emotional appeals’
How to achieve a good brand attitude is, in fact, rather complex. But to make it simple, we can break it down into some basic steps.
The first step is to determine whether what you sell is a high involvement or low involvement product.

Think of a high involvement product as one that is risky and important for customers. If you sell a product that is mission critical to a customer (that is, if it doesn’t work, the customer’s business doesn’t work), then it is clearly a high involvement product.

Alternatively, low involvement products are not that important or risky to customers.A decision must be made about how you will influence the customer’s attitude. Two broad ways exist for doing this.

One is through a rational persuasion approach (Also known as the ‘THINK’), the other is through an emotional appeal (also known as the ‘FEEL’). In fact, you see these different types of approaches used all the time in television and print advertising.

How you make this decision depends on what you know about your customers. If you were trying to change an engineer’s attitude, for example, a rational approach would typically (but not always) be best.

An artist might be approached more with an emotional appeal. The more you know about your customers, the easier this decision will be. ith an understanding of the nature of your customer’s involvement and the approach you will take, it is relatively easy to see the different strategies that should be used to achieve a good brand attitude. These are listed in the table below, and they are all based on research in persuasion and marketing.

As an example of what the table says, consider trying to change the attitude of a customer who is very involved in the product and appears susceptible to rational persuasion.
You should use multiple facts, expert and credible sources, scientific evidence, etc.

By looking at this table you can easily see how so many companies (especially Internet companies) who try to make fun ads with lots of music are assuming they are selling a low-involvement product to people who want an emotional appeal.
But are they? Not always, and this suggests they won’t do a good job persuading customers to like their brand.
The FCB Planning Model
The FCB grid, delineates four primary advertising planning strategies:
1. Informative
2. Affective
3. Habit forming
4. Satisfaction
