CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1       BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Prior independence, Nigerian citizens depended much on imported goods especially household products which were made available by the colonial masters and Western Merchants.  Then there were not much local substitute and where there is, they were no match to the imported goods in quality, hence the preference for the foreign products by many.

With the attainment of independence in 1960 came the clamour for another kind of independence economic independence.

The third and fourth National development plan was for self sufficiency.  The country had to minimize importation so as to become economically self sufficient.  A lot of efforts had been made towards the promotion of made in Nigeria goods.  To produce goods with local raw materials which was backed by the introduction of Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP) which embark on local sourcing of raw materials, food self-sufficiency and encouraging investment in growth.

Marking programmes such as trade fair are often organized to encourage and give exposure to local manufacturers.  It creates more awareness to the products.  It I been organized by the chamber of commerce and industries.

The product industries included Unilever Nigeria Plc, Patherson and Zochoms (PZ), UAC and International Equitable Association (IEA).  They produce close products substitutes but they differentiate their products and secure stronger markets position by use of brand name.

Branding is essential for advertising effectiveness.  This is because it is branding that distinguishes similar products of different manufacturers.  It helps consumers to establish the brand identity of various producers.  Branding can be defined as the use of a name, a term, symbol or design or a combination of these to identify a product.

It identifies the product for the consumer and relates it to brand and product design.

Brand promotion has advantages for branders as well as customers.  A good brand speeds up shopping for the customer and thus reduces the marketers selling time and effort.  And when customers repeatedly purchase by brand, the brand is protected against competition from other firms.  This can increase sales volume and reduce promotion costs.  Goods brands can improve the company’s image speeding acceptance of new products marketed under the same name.

Unilever Nigeria PLC is a marketing organization that markets over 40 different brands in 82 pack sizes ranging from Home care, personal care and food categories.  In order to ensure excellence in marketing the company has a clear policy of maintaining a high quality of her products, which is respected nationwide.

Every human being by human nature always like to appear best of all, so does every industry want to have the best of products.  This is a general feeling that some materials are inferior and preference is shown on products with more superior quality.  In some cases some products sell more than others not because they are better in quality, but because of the name it has made or the level of advertisement made on it.  The problem of this study is therefore to find out what roles product branding has helped in the marketing of Unilever PLC products.
