Online advertisement has had many developments of late. It is a fact that online advertisement can be termed as the future of advertisement. Consumer behaviour is mostly affected by product promotion. The era globalization has caused a shift in so many areas, including advertisement where advertisers are moving out of the conventional methods of advertisement into online advertisement. The competition in business world has continued to grow and thereby necessitating firms to be very creative in the way they carry out their activities, including advertisement. One of the developments that have been witnessed in the business world is online advertisements. Many firms are resulting into advertising their goods and services online as it is what is perceived as fashionable. This paper will provide an analysis of the effectiveness of online advertisement on consumer behaviour in mobile phone industry.

1.1 Background of Study

It is a fact that the modern consumer is an internet user, young, professional, affluent and has high income levels as well as education. This means that the current consumer is much suited by online advertising as opposed to the traditional methods of advertising (Palumbo and Herbig, 2008). The current consumer value their time more than they value the time. The consumers of today make the largest portion of the working population. Most of them have dual-income and are also single parents. This therefore means that for most of the consumers, time is a constraint.

Many works confirms the view that consumer’s large income and access to internet are some of the major factors that make firms to move from traditional methods of advertising into online advertising (Sisk, 2000; Hoffman and Novak, 1996; Liao and Cheung, 2011). Most researchers hold that demographic and personality variables are usually among the important factors that influence online advertisement (Kwak et al., 2012).

Bellman et al. (2009) states that demographics among consumers are not very important in determining whether a consumer will prefer online advertising over the conventional methods of advertising. But he also notes that online advertisement and marketing are becoming more favoured by the consumers as they are more fashionable that the conventional methods of advertising. Bellman et al (2009) also stated that among the characteristics of the consumers that make them prefer online advertisement to the traditional methods of advertising is the lifestyle of the consumer as well as their personalities. In online advertisement, propensity among the consumers is a powerful factor that determines how they perceive online marketing (Kwak et al., 2012; Miyazaki and Fernandez, 2011).
