The use of advertisements has significantly increased in the 20 Century as industrialization expanded the supply of manufactured products.
However, not many businesses practiced advertising at the time.
Advertising is a way of communication to encourage an audience for making purchase decision about a product or service and conveying information to viewers.
It is considered as a vital and essential element for the economic growth of the marketers and businesses (Ryans, 1996).Consumers buying behaviour has always been given so much importance and space in the literature study of impact of advertising regarding its effectiveness (Ajzen, 2002).Most of the time consumers buying behaviour depends on liking or disliking of consumer towards the advertisement of the product advertised (Smith et al., 2006).Former studies suggest that entertainment in advertising generates customer satisfaction (Chang, 2006). For instance, Duncan and Nelson (1985) conducted a research on how entertainment in advertisement affects consumers.They analysed 157 responses towards advertising and found that entertaining advertisements can influence consumers.Entertainment is used as a tool to gain attention of customers.An interesting and entertaining ad is more likely to be remembered by consumers rather than a boring one.Kumar & Raju (2013) in their paper “The Role of Advertising in Consumer Decision Making” have found that advertisements are able to change the consumer’s opinion about a particular product.Advertising has always known to be one of the key factors that affect consumer’s decision making process.Memories about the brand are formed by associations that are related to brand name in consumer mind (Khan, Siddiqui, Shah & Hunjra, 2012).These brands continuously influence consideration, evaluation and finally purchases (Romaniuk & Sharp, 2004).
