Consumers Wary YouGov-Americans-Trust-in-Advertising-Apr2014 Only 3% of Americans completely trust the advertisements they see, read or hear, while 11% don’t trust them at all, according to the results of a survey conducted by YouGov. The survey found that among American adults who see any advertising at least once a month, 44% find them to be fairly (37%) or very (7%) dishonest, and half don’t trust them. The figures were fairly consistent across demographic groups. distrust for advertising tended to rise alongside educational attainment: some 65% of those with a post-graduate degree distrust advertising to some extent, versus 44% of those with a high school degree or less. Frequently-used tactics in advertising don’t seem to matter much to respondents, according to the study. Although 15% of respondents are more likely to believe the claims made by brands that compare themselves with a named competitor, 26% are less likely to believe those claims. A similar pattern emerges when it comes to the inclusion of testimonials from experts or scientists: 16% are more likely to believe these claims, but 29% are less likely to. As for mentioning awards won by the product or service? It seems a wash: 20% are more likely to believe the claim, while 22% are less likely. Just 1 in 8 respondents overall feel that the current requirements for proving claims in advertising are about right. By comparison, a majority 58% feel that there should be stronger claims. Which product types are the worst offenders? Diet products, financial or insurance services/products and pharmaceutical products are the least trustworthy, according to respondents, while casual dining restaurants (other than fast food) and clothing stores engender the most trust.
