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. Also the problem facing E-Commerce and the prospects in the banking sector will be    pointed out.

 

1.1.1 PROFILE OF THE COMPANY OF THE CASE STUDY

The accident life of  Fidelity Bank has been over taken by the new consolidated foundation. Legally, the new and enlarged Fidelity  emerged on 23rd December 2005. When court approval was obtained for the merge of Fidelity Bank Plc  with the Old FSB International Bank and Manny Bank Plc. The fusion of the operation of the three banks did not materialize until January 2, 2006, when the Governor of the central Bank of Nigeria announced (a day earlier) The banks that scaled the capitalization hurdle and licensed operate in the country. The strategies rationale for merger of the  three banks was to bring together  banks of complementary competencies  to create value  in a vastly  changing financial services market place

Prior to the pronouncement of the approved 25 commercial banks by the CBN, Governor, the operating environment was very different in many respects. Post consolidation, the industry has been laden with challenges of integration (process staff, technology and products) and customer growth. Our bank has had its close of these challenges. The integration challenges having been summoned and a one of the fastest growing banks, our  institution is poised to deliver  even better results in the year ahead. It is in this regard that we are confident that the result of the year  to come would be more impressive because our bank has not yet fully leveraged on the synergies of the consolidation.
