According to Edwards ward this literature review of decision making (how people
make choices among desirable alternatives), culled from the disciplines of psychology,
economics, and mathematics, covers the theory of riskless choices, the application of the
theory of riskless choices to welfare economics, the theory of risky choices, transitivity of
choices, and the theory of games and statistical decision functions. The theories surveyed
assume rational behavior: individuals have transitive preferences (" if A is preferred to
B, and B is preferred to C, then A is preferred to C."), choosing from among alternatives
in order to " maximize utility or expected utility." 209-item bibliography.

Advertising is unique in its status as both a major textual genre and a revenue source
for media systems. As a textual genre, it is arguably the most dominant in our culture: for
every hour of primetime commercial television viewed, approximately twenty minutes of
that viewing involves exposure to advertising, television program announcements or
promotions, and public service announcements. Advertising is used to market traditional
branded products, but the selling and branding logic of advertising can also be applied to
other cultural and social endeavors, including politics, religion, and media entities (e.g.,

Advertising is a form of promotional activity that is used to encourage an audience

(viewers, readers, or listeners) to continue or take some new action. The desired result is

popular platforms like websites, press, and radio owned by publishers. Publisher either own
or manage platforms, like television channels, radio stations, and websites, which are

the advertising firm, its product qualities, place of availability of its products, etc.

History of Advertising

Advertising is dated back to the Christian Era. One of the first known methods of
advertising was outdoor signs, they would be painted on the wall of a building and were
usually very eye catching. Archaeologists have found signs in the ruins of ancient Rome
and Pompeii which advertised travelers to go to tavern situated in another town. In about
the 1440's there was an invention of movable-type of advertising which was a printing
press. In the 16th century some companies had a trade mark which was a two or three
dimensional picture or sign. In both volume and technique, advertising has made its
greatest advances in the U.S. In the early stages of U.S. advertising it was hard and
expensive to advertise nationally because the U.S. was still undeveloped and there was
little of no means of transport, distribution or communication. Eventually certain type of
manufactures thought of the idea of bypassing wholesalers, retailers and using catalogs.
Mail orders and pamphlets appeared around the 1870's. Late in the 19th century many
American firms began to market packaged goods under brand names. Previously
consumers had not been aware of or influenced by brand names. The first product that had
brand names were soap products. In the 1880's a few brands came out and they were Ivory,
Pears, Sapolio, Colgate, Kirks American Family and Packer's. Not long after brands such
as Royal baking powder, Quaker oats, Bakers chocolate, Hire's root beer, Regal shoes and
Waterman's pens were nationally advertised. In the early 1900's America began to become
aware of such brand names like Bon Ami, Wrigley and Coca-Cola. After World War 1
advertising developed into a business so big that it was almost a trademark of America
itself through the eyes of the rest of the world. This was expanded by technical
improvements which made transportation, communication and graphics work easier,
cheaper and better. Modern advertising has changed dramatically since the early twentieth
century, but when it comes to food, Katherine Parkin writes, the message has remained
consistent. Advertisers have historically promoted food in distinctly gendered terms,
returning repeatedly to themes that associated shopping and cooking with women.
Foremost among them was that, regardless of the actual work involved, women should
serve food to demonstrate love for their families. In identifying shopping and cooking as
an expression of love, ads helped to both establish and reinforce the belief that kitchen
work was women's work, even as women's participation in the labor force dramatically
increased. Alternately flattering her skills as a homemaker and preying on her insecurities,
advertisers suggested that using their products would give a woman irresistible sexual
allure, a happy marriage, and healthy children. Beyond their own individual success, ads
also promised that by buying and making the right foods, a woman could help her family
achieve social status, maintain its racial or ethnic identity, and assimilate into the American

These brands are usually paid for or identified through sponsors and viewed via various
media. Advertising can also serve to communicate an idea to a mass amount of people in
an attempt to convince them to take a certain action, such as encouraging 'environmentally
friendly' behaviors, and even unhealthy behaviors through food consumption, video game
and television viewing promotion, and a "lazy man" routine through a loss of exercise .
Modern advertising developed with the rise of mass production in the late 19th and early
20th centuries. Mass media can be defined as any media meant to reach a mass amount of
people. Several types of mass media are television, internet, radio, news programs, and

The related studies and literature that the researchers collected helped them to build
strong foundation in their research study. The study on the "Impact of Advertisement in
taking buying decision by consumer" and "Understanding decision making of consumer
through advertising strategy and integrated marketing" is related to this study since it
tackles about how the consumer's decision making is being affected by the advertisements.
The work of "semanticscholar" and "publishing media" helped the researchers to know the
effect of advertisements in the consumer's behavior. The literature review of decision
making by psynet, is also related because it gives information on how people chooses
among desirable alternatives and how decision making deals with it. The study of Samar
Fatima and Samreen Lodhi that tackles about the Impact of advertisement on buying
behaviours of the consumersis related to study of Dr. Sindhya V that tackles about the
Influence and Impact of Advertising to Consumer and the study of Barve G, Sood A,
Nithya S and Virmani T intitled Effects of Advertising on Youth. The literature review
of advertising and promotion of oxford bibliographies is connected to the literature
review of Advertisement Management System.
