CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1     Background of the Study

Advertising has become a part of our everyday life. However we are seeing many advertisements in TV, newspaper, magazine, radio, Internet etc. and we are affected by those advertisements consciously or unconsciously. Advertising is fascinating and provocative. Advertising creates customer awareness of the product and builds positive psychological associations that can enhance the buyer satisfaction (Wanoff, 1997). Consumer’s interest is provoked and sustained in the product. The purpose of advertising is to make potential buyers respond more favourably to the firm’s offering. Advertising provides information to customers creates and modifies their desires and provides reasons for preferring a particular product. Captivating and persuasive advertisements create wants through passive compulsion, which makes the consumers to buy the product. Advertising creates demand, and thereby, accelerates the growth in the gross domestic product. It also helps society by improving competition, lowering prices, encouraging more product choices, supporting the media and providing information. Advertising seems to go beyond merely selling products or ideas and can shape social trends and attitudes in powerful ways. However, advertising has been accused of harming society on the ground that it creates an unnecessary hype for the products and also manifests wants for superfluous products and services (Ammani, 2008)

The role of advertising in the sales of a Beverage Company in Nigeria cannot be underestimated, therefore, advertising is defined “as a tool which marketers use to communicate message to consumer, the general public and special public such as voters, and to the carriers of the messages like Televisions, Newspapers and magazines known as the media,.  Unlike personal selling some sales promotion and public relations techniques advertising are in impersonal means of communication.  It is an impersonal promotion to groups and paid for by an identified sponsor.          

Advertising has grown in recent times due to relative increase in productivity and consequent changes in the uncontrollable marketing environment where corresponding changes in technology, socio-cultural pattern, economic venture and legal advancement also take place.  It is not enough to produce and simply anticipate that consumers would become aware of the particular product, especially in a developing country like Nigeria.  The producer has to engage in promotional activities.  Robin Peterson asserts that advertising has played vital roles, which includes making consumers to be aware of existence of new products in the market, services or idea and the continued existence of old product that are already in the market.  It will not be easy for the members of the public to be aware of these without advertising. It also informs and educates the people on how to make use of that particular product or service   

Advertising also informs people where to obtain goods and services

It also improves the quality of goods and services. Lastly, advertising makes consumers increase the volume of their purchase.

In essence, advertising is among the various devices that designed to pull or push products through the market.  And the resulted effect of the use of advertising is an increase in the sales volume as compared to the past records in which advertising were not used.  Thus, advertising can be seen as a form of promotion/communication mix which greatly enhances the sales of a product.
