    I denne oppgaven har vi skrevet om branded content filmer, som er forankret under paraplybegrepet Content Marketing. Dette er ikke et nytt begrep, men viser sin aktualitet gjennom √łkende fremtreden av virksomheter som benytter seg av markedsf√łringsformen og gjennom mediene det er tema for omfattende diskusjon. V√•r problemstilling har som m√•l √• se p√• forskjeller i holdningsekstremitet og holdningsstyrke til to forskjellige filmer, der den ene filmen er en branded content film og den andre en reklamefilm med et mer tradisjonelt format. Vi √łnsket ogs√• se p√• hvordan modellen Persuasion Knowledge spiller inn. I oppgavens teoretiske del har vi startet med √• ta for oss de forskjellige begrepene innen Content Marketing. Videre har vi g√•tt gjennom holdningsteori og redegjort for modellene ‚ÄĚThe Elaboration Likelihood Model‚ÄĚ og ‚ÄĚThe Persuasion Knowledge Model‚ÄĚ. ELM benyttet vi oss av for √• se p√• grad av refleksjon til respondentene, mens PKM ble benyttet for √• se om respondentene hadde kunnskaper om at det foregikk et overtalelsesfors√łk. For √• svare p√• problemstilling lagde vi tre hypoteser: H1) Eksponering av branded content filmer vil f√łre til en mer positiv holdning til reklamen og til merket enn ved eksponering av tradisjonell TV-reklame, H2) Eksponering av branded content filmer vil f√łre til en sterkere holdning til reklamen og merket enn ved eksponering av tradisjonell reklame og H3) Eksponering av tradisjonell TV-reklame vil i st√łrre grad aktivere Persuasion Knowledge enn ved eksponering av branded content filmer. Videre valgte vi metode. P√• bakgrunn av problemstillingen, som er testende problemstilling, √łnsket vi √• g√• i bredden og teste mange, vi brukte derfor et ekstensivt opplegg. Vi skulle se p√• forskjeller og i den forbindelse teste hypoteser, derfor var kvantitativ metode √• foretrekke, og vi valgte √• utf√łre et eksperiment, for √• finne forskjellen p√• de to gruppene. Resultatene fra eksperimentet var at vi fikk st√łtte for hypotese 1 og hypotese 2. Men analysen visste ingen signifikant forskjell mellom de ulike variablene n√•r sjekket grad av Persuasion Knowledge
