CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1                  Background of the Study

    Many companies still rely primarily on one or two communication tool to achieve their communication aims. This is in spite of the great changes taking place in the market economy especially the des integration of mass market into a multitude of mini market each requiring its own communication approach.

          The wide range of communication tools, message and audience makes it imperative that companies’ gives thought to a prospect and user and orchestration of communication tools.

         Based on this, advertising is one of the communication tools is a paid form of non-personal presentation and promotion of idea, goods or services by an identified sponsor which is measured in media. The measured media include print and electronic media and outdoor displays as the case may be.

         Sales promotion covers the wide range  of activities not encompassed in personal selling or advertising, rebates, premiums, couponing, price off packs, bonus pack, sampling, point of purchase  material, trade allowance, sales and dealer incentives, trade shows and exhibition, consumer education and demonstration.

Wide variation of the effectiveness in the use of marketing variables lead to difference among industries and companies in the magnitude of the communication expenditure, we should all note that some form of advertising has probably existed since the development of the exchange process. Most of the early advertising was vocal. Today the increase in its dimension has modernized its means, carriers and vendors sold various product, made public announcement and created man y advertising slogans. Songs were also used to identify products or services like wise symbols that also represented something.

          The printing press was also used in a fashion which leads to the gradual growth and development of advertising, thereby providing a practical readily available medium to deliver advertising message to the literate in the public.

        Advertising in ancient and medieval times was crude when compared to present day standard. Nevertheless, the basic reason for employing the techniques was the same as now, to communicate information educate and ideas to groups of people in other to change or rein-force an attribute.
