Abstract: Though the issue on standardization of advertising is no loner a new issue, much research have been done concerning the consumers’ point of view. As many multinationals are planning to enter the Chinese markets, a question on whether they should standardize or localize their advertising strategy becomes a major issue. Therefore, this research project intends to compare the advertising responses of Chinese consumers towards local andforeign advertising. A significant difference in consumer attitude is found towards local and foreign advertisements. Chinese consumers in general prefer local-made ads than foreign-made ads and find local-made ads more interesting and not irritating. Chinese consumers also prefer transformational rather than informational advertising especially if the ad is foreign-made. Since television advertising is a form of entertainment for the Chinese consumers, they prefer viewing visual imagery rather than receiving detailed information. In general, the results show that food products and foreign-made transformational advertising, especially for more familiar American brands, are more easily to be transferred directly to the Chinese markets.
