The traditional media are often more neutral in providing information on content. But content is not necessarily neutral. Both positive and negative events can have a significant influence on the image of a company or a person. If the media then underline this view with their own opinions or even with the opinions of those appearing in the coverage, the image can be reinforced still further.
The image of brands, products and companies can be a decisive factor when it comes to potential customers making purchasing decisions. A negative image will be reflected in the turnover figures in either the short or the long term. The image of a brand is influenced by various factors, including media coverage, and therefore has a direct and often significant impact on customer behaviour. Media coverage can influence not only potential customers (‘consideration set’) but also existing customers when it comes to customer satisfaction. If customers are disappointed in a company’s behaviour, then their trust in the brand diminishes, which can lead to a drop in revenue.
