INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

A product includes all the peripheral factors that contribute to a consumer satisfaction i.e. when you eat in a restaurant, the product is more than just the food, it includes the quality of the service and the atmosphere (Mauser and Schwartz 1982).

Hence is purchasing a product, a consumer would desire it to be or expect it to be of good quality, in order to meet his needs, expectation and for his ultimate satisfaction.

        Fine quality products leads to consumer’s good will and satisfaction that manifest themselves in the form of repeat sales, loyal to customers and clients and testimonial to prospective customers or clients (Donnely, Gibson and Ivancevich 1987). Therefore it is up to the producer or manufacturer to maintain that quality to ensure consumers satisfaction.

        Generally, Nigeria-made products that are often referred to as being inferior and of low quality. This has drastically reduced the demand for local products and has further discouraged private entrepreneurs from investing in some local industries. It has been observed over the years that many companies are either folding up or carrying out mass retrenchment due to lack of patronage of their products. For any business to continue to exist it must have a market to satisfy and this means that it must provide product and service which have quality standard, it is necessary for firms to adopt quality control measures which will help them to produce quality goods and services that will satisfy the ultimate users. In order for Nigerian to develop economically, firms have to produce goods of high quality content by adopting total quality control method to all aspects of their production activities. This will help in flushing out substandard goods, which are presently in existence in the country.

        Small scale business in the cornerstone of any nation’s industrial and economic growth. It is in the view of the importance of small scale business to a nation’s well being that successive federal government come out with policies to encourage the development and growth of small scale business.

        For any organization to be successful in its business there must be a way in which goods and services produced are distributed to those who need them. The process where by goods are produced and distributed is know as marketing.

        According to Kotler (1986)

“marketing is a social process by which individuals and groups obtain what they need and want through creating and exchanging products and value with other”.     

        With this definition above we see that marketing involves the process of exchange of goods and services for other values. For any one to engage himself in marketing, he or she must take the 4ps (Marketing mix) into consideration i.e. product, price, promotion and place.

        The 4ps are the general activities which make up marketing. The product which is the most important among all the market mix is the nerve-centre of the business as other activities cannot take place without the product, also the price of the product must be determined, the place where the product will be sold must also be decided and finally the product must be promoted so that consumers will be aware of the presence of the products. These will be discussed more or details in later chapters. In the past most writers focused on lack of or in adequacies of fianc√© as the greatest problem military against the development and growth of small scale business in Nigeria. This research will be focusing on the problems and prospects of marketing activities of small scale business.
