This study aims to determine the factors that affect Attitude towards Advertisement and assess the impact of Attitude towards Advertisement on Brand Equity. With digital media proliferation, brands are the main assets for a company to survive in the competitive marketplace. Advertisement expenditure for both print and online advertisements has failed to bring in the desired results in terms of change in attitude of the consumers and brand equity. Moreover, the answer to the question on which advertisement media has a more effective impact on Attitude towards Advertisement to create brand equity still remains unanswered. Therefore, the current research aims to identify the potential factors that affect Attitude towards Advertisement and compare both types (print and online advertisements) to find out the best advertisement medium that can determine Attitude towards Advertisements and Brand Equity. The data was collected from 300 Libyans studying in different universities in Malaysia. A quasi-experimental research design was applied to know the consumers’ preferences for print and online advertisements. The results of ANOVA test show that online advertisement has a greater ability to represent the focal constructs as compared to print advertisement. After confirmation, the hypotheses were tested using data of online advertisement constructs with the help of SEM-AMOS. The results of the analysis show that Message Appeal, Argument Quality and Interactivity, have a significant relationship with Attitude towards Advertisement. Furthermore, Attitude towards Advertisement has a significant relationship with Brand Awareness, Brand Image and Brand Purchase Intention. This study contributes to the existing body of knowledge by expanding the use of the Elaborate Likelihood Model of Persuasion, Persuasive Hierarchy Framework and Consumer-Based Brand Equity Model for creating Brand Equity among consumers. Moreover, the findings from the current study can be helpful for companies to devise more effective advertisement strategies, use their resources more efficiently and develop strong online advertisement campaigns.
