On the other hand, with the increased advertisement, consumers tend to be less perceptive and naïve in terms of what they hear from TV ads, see on the boards, or read in print ads.

On the other hand, advertising is viewed as effective reinforcing tool, which reminds the customers about a given product, service, or brand. These different concepts and approaches to advertising have caused a major debate between Ehrenberg and John Philip Jones, who developed two different theories: strong and weak theory (Keeble, 1998). This paper aims to define the status of each theory and analyse each theory by using some practice-based cases.
Advertising as an integral element of human activity has a variety of interpretations and definitions of this concept. Among a variety of these interpretations and explanations, Fill (2013:429) recognises two major views: (1) advertising is a potent marketing force, which is done for persuading people. and (2) advertising is force for persuasion and for reminding people about brands. There also exist different theories and frameworks of advertising. Among a variety of these theories, there were two concepts: (1) Strong theory presented by Jones (1990) and (2) Weak theory presented by Andrew Ehrenberg. More detailed overview of these theories of advertising is provided below.

This view is aligned with the strong theory of advertising, according to which advertising can generate long-run purchasing behaviour, can persuade consumers and thus to increase sales (Fill, 2013).
