Abstract: Destination marketers promote emerging heritage sites using advertisements that feature either one or more than one brand. However, it is unclear which type of advertisement is more effective. This research addresses this topic through three experimental studies. Study 1a and Study1b, respectively, demonstrate that, compared to single brand advertisements, joint brand advertisements with highly familiar national tourist brands exert a stronger favourable influence on tourists' behavioural intentions towards emerging heritage sites and advertising click through rate. Study 2 demonstrates that such an effect occurs via an increase in the emerging heritage site brand's credibility. Marketers could, therefore, resort to joint brand advertisements with familiar brands to effectively promote emerging heritage sites.
