The module Entertainment Media Marketing deals with the particularities of Entertainment Media products, which are mainly consumed for hedonic benefits. In the module, we take both the consumers’ and the managers’ perspective by focusing on aspects such as hedonic consumption, branding, and communication.

Topics treated in the module:

- The role of emotions, imagery, and multisensory cues
- Factors influencing the success of hedonic media products
- The importance of brands for entertainment media product success
- The role of communication and information in hedonic media marketing: Cascades, Word of Mouth, and Third-Party Information

The aim of this module is that students understand the theoretical and practical implications of managing entertainment media products and are able to steer marketing activities accordingly.
