Abstract: This paper aims to show the importance of marketing ethics and its efficient role in achieving a high level of consumer loyalty.

The findings reveal that marketing ethics can make consumer loyal through satisfaction, trustworthiness, relationship with partner, and image of the brand. That is what may be realised by adhering to the ethical rules.
