CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    Background to the study

The need to persuade the behavior of people to make buying decision brought the concept of advertising. According to Terkan (2014:239) “One of the most significant impacts of globalizing on the business word is the immense empowering of the consumer as a global citizen. The consumer has become more powerful and important in the twenty first century than in previous years”. Consumers have to calm down and wait to be wooed by companies now. Companies have to be creative and active on their production to meet the demand of the consumers from every corner of the globe. Competition is seen on a global scale in today’s world, companies are faced with the challenge of capturing and maintaining ICT and global minded customers, (Terkan, 2014).

Every business oriented organization gives utmost priority to promotional activities that will keep target consumers constantly informed about its products in the market. The practice of advertising is as old as man. According to Keller (2005), the urge to advertise seems to be a part of human nature evidenced since ancient times. One of the earliest means of advertising was the use of signs. Early craftsmen used signs to advertise their wares and some traders like Phoenicians planted commercial messages on prominent rocks. They were among the forerunners of modern day advertising. Advertising is a prominent feature of modern business operations and also a form of communication that attempts to interpret the qualities of products services and ideals in terms of consumer needs and wants. Some companies or organizations embrace advertising to achieve good will high market share and sales. A successful national economy depends on sales promotion in the form of advertising to maintain factory production, creation of employment and so the money goes round and round. Advertising is a mass media content that provides a platform for firms to create awareness about their products or services and how consumers can make the best out of such products.

  Bovee and Arens (1994), defined advertising as “the non-personal communication of information, usually paid for and usually persuasive in nature about products (goods and services) or ideas by identified sponsors through various media.” In the same vein, Kotler (2003:591), simply says advertising is “any paid form of ideas, goods, or services by an identified sponsor”.  This awareness- creation exercise does not only have to be regular but also persuasive enough to influence buying decisions in favour of the product. Advertising creates an avenue for marketing process to take place. It is a key promotional technique which plays up products advantages with a view to winning customers and keeping them. It does this job more effectively when combined with other promotional mix variables.

  Advertising as a marketing tool is used by business organization to inform consumers that the right product is available at the right place, right price and to convince the consumer to purchase them. Advertising comprises all messages that are paid for in the media, owned and controlled by people other than the company making the advertisement. Therefore, advertising must be tailored towards consumer’s satisfaction and organizational performance. One  could encounter advertising messages through various traditional media including mass media such as Television, Radio, Magazines, Newspapers, outdoor,  direct mail or new media such as blogs, websites or text messages, as advertising has a stimulating influence on purchasing behaviour of the consumers. Olusegun (2006) opined that all advertisement must be honest and follow ethical standards and must not be perceived by the target consumer as lie; otherwise, it can better the image of a company and hinder it from building successful brands. Thus, a good advert message should not be boring but rather reflect the lifecycle of the product, (Okeji, 2008). He concluded that advertising must be exposed in the right medium as this will enable organization to reach the right people with the right message. Person, organizations, groups, government agencies and different sectors of many economies employ advertising to marshal messages to forget public. This is because a well- crafted advertisement program can be a cost- effective way to disseminate messages and build hand preferences.

 According to Benson Eluwa (2004), the Advertising Pratitioners of Nigeria(APCON) define advertising as an information which is persuasive and informative about goods and services that is paid for or sum of ideas which defined by advertisers via using media. Kumar (2004) views advertisement as an act of advertising which stands for giving public notice or to announcing publicly as a dictionary meaning. Advertising is a communicative ability to bring to the public knowledge of a particular new product and service or the reminder of the existence of a particular product and service through the mass media. According to Trehan and Trehan (20011), market is controlled by consumers so companies have to persuade and attract the consumer for selling their products and services. According to Terkan (2014), in business, advertising help to selling goods and services. It is an important tool for business marketing. Consumer can learn all details information by advertising. Advertising is important for competition among the business. It also affects the products price and also its quality. Moreover, advertising help to speed up the introduction of new inventions, the process of industrialization and the expansion of businesses.

 The media help to link up to buyers and sellers in an easy environment.

Many buyers and sellers meet each other on the pages of the newspaper, on the screen of the television set and on the voice of radio station. It is therefore means that the mass media is the agent of business expansion. According to Chinenye, Ephriam and Chinne (2012:312) “advert message (content) is relayed on a vehicle, a pipe that conveys it to the desired audience. The pipe or vehicle is the media. Due to the impact of revenue generation for mass media, advertisement has been an important concept in journalism. According to Nwamuo (2009:210) “revenue from advertisement represents a growing source of media finances in different parts of the world. Many corporate organizations in Nigeria spend millions of naira annually on advertisement”. Media sustainability is depended on the amount of revenue generated. This is only for private owned media as government owned media depend on government subvention. Medium like newspaper started as private; that was during the colonial rule. Newspaper like West Africa pilot were political newspaper however, they were sponsored by the owners.

 Today there are many newspaper organizations that have national outlook. These newspapers are owned by private individuals in the society. Among them is the Guardian newspaper. It was established in 1983 by the entrepreneur Alex Ibru, assisted by Stanly Macaebuh, a top journalist with the daily times newspaper. It was first published on February 22, 1983 as a weekly, appearing on Sunday, it started daily publication on July 4, 1983. Another accusation is based on the likehood of advertisement stimulating the process of goods as companies try to recover huge amount spent on advertising in the media.

1.2Statement Of The Problem

 Advertising communicationplays a key role in the development and survival of mass media. Many newspaper has been folded up due to lack of advertisement patronage from organizations. Therefore means that newspaper should be aggressive in winning advertisement. According to Hule and Anderson (2003:432) “expectedly, advertisement have capitalized on the difficult economic situation to inject their influence on the newsroom; a situation that lightens the border between advertisement and news”.

 The impact of advertisement in mass media is too strong to be disputed. Most of the revenue generation comes from advertisement. It is therefore important to investigate the impact of advertisement on newspapers survival. This study will look into the impact of advertisement on media sustainability, using vanguard newspaper as a study.
