Insight for Practitioners

Dr. Wajid H. Rizvi, Dean of School of Business Studies (SBS) and Head of the Neuro-marketing Lab, investigates overshadowing effect of a celebrity in his latest study. The term 'Brand Visual Eclipse (BVE)' is coined and the BVE occurs when brand fixation spent is minimal of the celebrity fixation spent. High BVE occurs when brands receive less than or equal to twenty percent fixation spent of the celebrity; moderate BVE occurs when the brand receives more than twenty percent and less than or equal to eighty percent fixation spent of the celebrity fixation spent and low BVE occurs when brand receive more than eighty percent fixation spent of the celebrity fixation spent. Two product categories were analyzed (Detergent Bar Brand and Mobile Brand), based on eye tracking data, the results suggest that high eclipse was observed in both categories. The BVE can be used as an advertising effectiveness indicator based on biometric data. The data was collected (n = 30) using Tobii-X30 Hz and was analyzed using iMotions biometric platform.
