Abstract

Background

Online Advertising is a continuously developing phenomenon, which helps several websites stay financially alive. However, online advertising tends to often be avoided by the consumers exposed to it, due to a number of perceived issues linked to online ads. One group of websites that are particularly dependent on advertising revenue are online news sites. Research on why people avoid ads have been conducted, but is limited to traditional online advertising approaches and older consumer segments, creating a gap which this thesis strives to fill.

Purpose

The purpose of this research is to investigate Generation Y’s perception of traditional advertising as well as in contrast to the new emerging alternatives. As a result of this, one main research question was formulated alongside with three subquestions.

Method

The research approach of this study consists of an exploratory research conducted through a multi-method approach with in-depth interviews and focus groups in order to find out how, why and what the subjects experience and perceive when exposed to advertising. Deciding on how to select the sample for the empirical study, the authors heavily focused on finding the appropriate number of participants that also fit suggested profile. In order to analyze the data, the framework analysis’ method and triangulation through multiple analysts was used.

Conclusion

This study came to the conclusion that most perceived issues, as those described in previous literature, remain for the most part accurate. The perceived issues of Goal Impediment and Ad Irritation are the major influencers for online ad avoidance. Native Advertising is successful in diminishing the perceived issues of Goal Impediment and Ad Irritation, but increased the negative perception of Ad Skepticism. Whitelist indicates to be a initiative that could diminish the issues resulting in Ad Avoidance, but lacks practical implementations.
