The study found that─
The main content of KMT’s advertisments was the negatives. KMT tried to attack the other parties by advertising, but the visual and copy writing skill were poor. KMT also failed to present selling propositions in advertisements. In vehicle selecting, KMT used many kinds of newspapers to carry advertisements, but the newspapers of United Daily Group were excluded. In scheduling strategy, KMT launched all of the advertisements in the period of eleven days before the day of voting. The focus of DPP’s advertising was the rebuilding of image, from sadness to happiness. With excellent visualization, yet the copy didn’t stress a major idea clearly and didn’t emphasize the voter’s ultimate benefit─ the needs of safety. DPP took a tactics of steady media scheduling and it limited on the vehicle selecting, in which no government-owned and KMT-owned newspapers were used. The tactics of CNP’s advertising are image building and attacking opposers, KMT and DPP. Only the newspapers of United Daily Group and China Times Group were used to put out advertisements. Among these newspapers, CNP prefered the United Daily News and the United Evening News. It testified to the “effect of context”, namely a ideological matching between advertiser and media.
