Repeated advertisements do affect the decision when buying something. Though sometimes it goes the opposite...
I never buy anything because I see it advertised or because it is on sale. I buy what I need and when I need it.
I have a friend who continually buys stuff because he has seen it advertised, or because it looks cool or because it is on sale. This friend also complains about his financial situation.
I won't say I run right and buy things I see advertised. However, if I'm planning on buying something (a new vacuum, a car, or whatever), I tend to pay more attention to those which are advertised the most. Then I go on-line and do some comparisons among what are said to be the top brands and usually buy the one with the highest ratings.
I read lots of reviews after seeing something advertised on rv or the internet.
Offcourse, most of the times - like the most of people. Advertisements are not only telling us about some product but these days it usually contain subliminal messages which encodes our minds to create an urge of buying that specific product when needed
advertisement sometimes is useful as well, allowing you to remember that you need those things and giving you a new options if you are not satisfied with the first one.
The advertisement has an effect on the decision to purchase the goods bu the final outcome is strictly personal. There are many other things that come into the mind before making a purchase like
How the product has been packed?
The channel that is selling it. Does it has some reputation and Is it fair in dealing with the customers?
What do my friends and known-ones say about the it?
No, not at all, I buy product after reading lots of review, asking people to various related forums who already used that. I am really not a believer on advertisement.
more than 80% of the people buy products because of reviews and testimonials.
Yes, sometimes I do. But for many products and services, I do read reviews. Phones, Hotels, etc fall in this category. But, for airlines, etc where there is a lack of many options, I cannot be choosy.
Yes, I buy Products because of Advertisements & Needs.
I don't think I have ever bought something online because of an advertisement, unless you consider digital coupons on a store's main site, a store I can visit physically with the coupon, buying because of adverts.
Honestly, when I see an ad on a site I just assume there is malware, viruses, and other malicious intents on the other end. Thus, I rarely ever turn off adblocker.
Most of the time if I buy a product based on an advertisement, and the advertisement is convincing, the end result is disappointment. There are exceptions though. Most of infomerical products that are as seen on tv do not do remotely of what they say or its half truths. So now I read reviews first on products that cost more than 30.00.
Most of the time when I see an advertisement that interests me, I often check out the products and services. I don't immediately make a purchase, but I use the product as a baseline as I engage in research to review other similar and cheaper substitutes before making a purchase decision.
For me advertisement plays a vital part of every product. Information about the product is most times made knows. If this information meets my needs, I will surely purchase the product.

Should laws be passed to make advertising acurate?companies advertise about how well products work but it is rarely true. should laws be passed that make it so the company has to be honest about their product and I don't mean using a play of words but true accuracy.

The truth is, (on average) the day you send out your online advertisements, there is a window of 30 days for a response. It also means that the day you neglect to send your advertisements you should expect no responses 30 days from the day you did not send that advertisement.Also, it takes (on...

Do you get carried away by advertisements or do your own research before buying any product?

I would like to see a daily or weekly or even monthly list of words that Hubbers should avoid using (if they want Google Adsense on their Hubs). It would be helpful I think to many writers who don't want to spend hours writing a Hub only to find out they used a 'banned' word in the copy or a word...
