Dagmar Model



 It is necessary to make the target audience

aware with the product or company before purchase behaviour expected  The initial communication task - to increase the consumer awareness of the product or offer

 This step involves the target audience to

learn something about product, organisation, or offer. Here communication task of advertising activity is to make consumer learn about product - product characteristics, benefits, or uses.

Attitude and conviction
 At this step by creating interest and preference,

buyers are moved to a position where they are convinced that a particular product in the class should be tried at the next opportunity.  Communication task - to mould the audience‟s beliefs about the product through messages that demonstrate the product‟s superiority over a rival or by talking about the rewards as a result of using the product

 Finally, communication must encourage

buyer to engage in purchase activity.

current level of 20% to 30% among the owner of product X before the launch of product Y which is expected within the next 6 months.
