CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

E-marketing in Nigerian banking sector is an aspect of electronic universe in which messages and information streak across the continent or around the world at the speed of light. It is a place where you can find facts, meet customers, transact business, receives customers complaints, and handle them, meet thousand of their things without ever leaving your home o office.

Marketing activities is as old as man lives. The development of marketing started many years ago. The history behind the development made us understand that there is an era where marketing activities were less regarded forgetting it is the hallmark of every business growth.

Customers’ needs were not investigated, the marketers were not train and no attention paid to them. Firms can produce whatever they want (sales oriented) and force them to the customer through untrained entities. Till the recent time where the customers orientation became the order of the day, but still, the marketers even when they were paid preferential care were found on the road every day by day to have transaction with the customers out there. This has hindered effectiveness; marketing has gone beyond the face of walking under the sun day by day in search of customers and their needs to be met. Therefore, the idea of e-marketing set in, where too many things can be done without coming under the sun. the introduction of this course is a realm of myriad opportunities destined to forever alter the way marketing transaction in the banking sector is done.
