Many online marketers believe that it’s the best way to increase online advertising performance ; showing their advertisements to as many people as possible and attracting users’ attention even using provocative creative contents.

But it’s not true. Advertising that disturbs consumers can never bring good results.

Consumers will ignore it no matter how much they expose their advertising to consumers. And eventually they’ll leave only negative perceptions of their goods/services to consumers.

Korean Broadcast Advertising Corporation(kobaco) conducted a survey with 4,000 respondents and announced ‘2018 Media&Consumer Research’. And you can check the techniques and content types of online advertising that consumers hate.
