Why video? Based on message-learning approach.
According to the message-learning approach, the fundamental element of persuasion is attention, comprehension, yielding, and retention. Video is more effective regarding of these factors
Why celebrities? Based on three theories: (1) affective component of attitude, (2) observational learning theory, (3) self-perception theory.
According to Bandura (1977), observational learning is a process of learning through watching others, retaining the information, and then later replicating the behaviors that were observed. For example, when someone we admire greatly espouses a particular attitude, we are more likely to develop the same beliefs as well.
According to Bem’s (1967) self-perception theory, we sometimes use our memory of our past behaviors to form attitudes about attitude objects. In some more recent extensions of Bem’s ideas, Goldstein and Cialdini (2007) demonstrate that we can even use the behavior of close others as indicative of our own attitudes. That is, when we feel a sense of shared identity with other people we may also incorporate their behaviors into our own attitudes towards attitude objects.
Method 2: Influencers’ Articles
Invite different type of influencers (fashion/ music/ marketing/ feminist influencer) to write educational article and post it on social media platform like Weibo or WeChat.
Why? Based on the cognitive component of attitude which refers to the knowledge, and thoughts that we have about an object. Attitudes are developed cognitively, affectively (emotionally), and even through our behaviors.
Method 3: Exhibition
In connection with the campaign, held an exhibition in Shanghai. Showing the women in the video and their statement. It can also be a real platform for women to meet, take part in the campaign and listen to talks on the topic of changing their destiny.
Why? Based on Mere Exposure Effect Theory.
