18 Marketing Management Philosophies O There are five alternative concepts under which organizations conduct their marketing activities: O Production O Product O Selling O Marketing O Societal marketing concepts

19 Production Concept O Idea that customers will favor products that are available and highly affordable O Management should focus on improving productions and distribution efficiency O Useful in two situations: O When demand exceeds supply O When product cost is too high and improved productivity is needed to bring it down O Companies who use this run the risk of focusing too narrowly on their own operations—lose sight of competition and of customer needs

20 Product Concept O Idea that consumers will favor products that offer the most in quality, performance, and innovative features O Organizations devote energy to making continuous product improvements O Leads to marketing myopia—buyers may not be looking for the specific product, but alternative solutions to a problem O Example: O Transportation vs. train, bus, car, airplane

21 Selling Concept O Idea that consumers will not buy enough of an organization’s products unless it undertakes a large-scale selling and promotion effort O Typically practiced with unsought goods such as insurance O Practiced when companies have overcapacity O Sell what they make vs. what market wants O Focuses on creating sales transactions versus building long term relationships

22 Marketing Concept O Idea that achieving organizational goals depends on determining the needs and wants of target markets and delivering the desired satisfactions more effectively and efficiently than competitors do O Outside-in perspective O Customer focus and value are the paths to sales and profits O Builds customer satisfaction into the fabric of the company O Customer driven O Research is done on current customers to learn about their desires, gather new product and service ideas, and test proposed product improvement

23 Societal Marketing Concept O Idea that the organization should determine the needs, wants, and interests of target markets. It should then deliver superior value to customers in a way that maintains or improves the consumer’s and society’s well being. O Newest concept O Questions whether the pure marketing concept is adequate in an age of environmental problems, resource shortages, rapid population growth, world- wide economic problems, and neglected social services O Looks at the long run impacts of decisions

24 Marketing Challenges O Connecting with More Carefully Selected Customers O Most companies are targeting fewer, more profitable customers O Diversity and new customer connections mean greater market fragmentation O “ono-to-one” marketing O Value to customers O Value of the customers to the company O Profitable customers O earn their loyalty

25 Marketing Challenges O Connecting for a Customer’s Lifetime O Companies choosing what customers to serve and serving them in deeper, more lasting ways O Building relationships O Goal shifting—making a profit to making long- term profits by managing the lifetime value of a customer O Goal--keeping old customers and offering greater variety

26 Marketing Challenges O Connecting Directly O Most products are available without going to a store O Online availability of products, shopping consultants, payment O Customers are active participants in shaping the marketing offer and process

27 Marketing Challenges O Connecting with Marketing Partners O Connecting within the company O Every functional area can interact with customers O Marketing no longer has sole ownership of customer interactions O Every employee must be customer focused O Cross-functional customer teams are created to increase success

28 Marketing Challenges O Connecting with Marketing Partners O Connecting with Outside Partners O Supply Chain Management O Stretches from raw materials to components to final products that are carried to final buyers O Success depend on how well the chain works together versus competitors supply chains

29 Marketing Challenges O Connections with the world around us O Global Connections O Marketers are connected globally with customers O Companies have expanded market coverage O Challenges from skillful European market and Asian multinationals O Selling more in international markets O Buying from international supplies and components
