Abstract: This study seeks to answer the question of whether advertising influences consumer behaviour in terms of their choices and purchases. To achieve this, a review of a total of 67 local and international articles was conducted. The method is based on retrospective non-experimental research design. Findings demonstrate that, though the relationship between advertising and consumer behaviour is sometimes unpredictable, it is predominantly positive, as shown by about 84% of the total number of articles reviewed. This paper concludes that the influence of advertising on consumer behaviour is still very subjective, and cannot be generalised. The interrelationship is determined by a number of factors, such as the type of advertising being used, the nature of the product under study, sex, age, level of education, religiosity, to mention a few. This study is useful to marketers and advertisers as well as researchers willing to conduct further studies on the subject.
