Product Placement in Filipino Films: An approach to Consumer Purchasing Intention
Today, the majority of advertisements are digital, and the use of product placement is becoming an important tool for marketers. The use of this tool in the media, especially in films, is attractive to consumers and businesses. The consumer’s behavior towards product placement in films is evident in most countries; however, studies on local films such as in the Philippines are still limited in the literature. Drawing from the cognitive capacity theory, this study aims to examine the effect of Product Placements in Filipino films on the consumer's purchasing intention. From the online survey of (N=384) respondents exposed to local films that were released from the years 2009 to 2019, results reveal that the study put forward a significant effect on consumer behavior with a significant relationship between product placement and consumer purchasing intention. The study concludes that product placement in Filipino films affects consumers’ purchasing intention through brand recall, awareness, and attitude.
