Objective: This study is focused on verifying the role and effectiveness of traditional media in terms of brand management to determine ways to effectively manage a variety of media in the trans-media era. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this study, a hybrid mode comprising the concurrent use of TV commercials and online advertising and an online-only mode, which utilized only online advertising, were compared according to typical brand performance indices including brand awareness, brand preference, purchase intention, and brand image. Findings: The results of this study show that the hybrid mode has statistically significant higher performance in all brand indices than the online-only mode. This study provides some important implications in the context of the dwindling role of traditional media under the impact of new media, in so far as traditional media is revealed to be an important strategy even today. Improvements/Applications: The development of marketing communication strategies should take into account both the management of brand performance as a long-term aspect and the leading of customer buying behavior as a short-term aspect of comprehensive advertising plans in the trans-media era.
