INTRODUCTION

1.1.    Background of the study

Marketing is an integral part of any organization. This would help increase customer base and make an organization very popular if adequately and properly done. Marketing is the action or business of promoting and selling products or services, including market research and advertising (Wikipedia, 2009). It can also be a process for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. Organizations that want to be successful must do all it can to have an effective and efficient marketing network.

Marketing isn't as simple as paid advertising on television or in newspapers. Marketing is any technique used to make the public aware of a company and what it has to offer over its competitors. The variations of marketing activities are vast and encompass almost every kind of media and company-initiated outreach. Faith based organizations are organizations based on a particular religious ideology, has religiously oriented mission statements and often draws its activists (leaders, staff, volunteers) from a particular religious group(Wikipedia, 2009). “Faith-based organization” currently acts as broad shorthand for a wide spectrum of organizations that deserve more specific treatment in the academic literature.

1.9      Definition of terms

Faith based organization(FBO): organization based on a particular religious ideology, has religiously oriented mission statements and often draws its activists (leaders, staff, volunteers) from a particular religious group.

Marketing:this is about communicating the value of a product, service or brand to customers or consumers for the purpose of promoting or selling that product, service, or brand. The oldest – and perhaps simplest and most natural form of marketing – is 'word of mouth' (WOM) marketing, in which consumers convey their experiences of a product, service or brand in their day-to-day communications with others. These communications can of course be either positive or negative.

Marketing activity:Marketing activities are nothing but how you are going to handle the marketing mix (price, product,place,promotion,positioning,people,physical evidence) in order to market your product successfully. The various activities involved in handling the above mentioned comprises the marketing activities. 

Organization:this is an entity comprising multiple people, such as an institution or an association, that has a collective goal and is linked to an external environment.

Need identification is a process where sales representative talks to his customer in the form of a question and answer session to identify the gap that the latter wants to fill for his business to grow and achieve the set-forth targets

Customer Satisfaction as the customer's perceptionthat compare their pre-purchase expectations with postpurchase perception.

Service quality as the comparison of performance with ideal standards.As can be seen from this review, service quality definitions are often focused on the customer.

5.2    Conclusion

Faith based organizations are organizations based on a particular religious ideology, has religiously oriented mission statements and often draws its activists (leaders, staff, volunteers) from a particular religious group(Wikipedia, 2009). “Faith-based organization” currently acts as broad shorthand for a wide spectrum of organizations that deserve more specific treatment in the academic literature.

Marketing activities of Faith Based Organisations impact virtually every product or service sold in the Nigeria. These activities collectively form the "marketing mix" that describes how a company produces, prices, places and promotes a product or service within a market.

5.3    Recommendation

Faith based organisations are involved in a host of operational factors and associated concerns. Given limitations on their scope and capacity, there were doubts that FBOs could significantly expand the social well fare system. In addition, welfare provision was largely a state matter and the research showed that some states were more proactive than others in supporting the various provisions of Faith Based Organisations.
