Lecture 19 Marketing Concept 4Ps in the Marketing Mix variables: -Product, Price, Promotion, Distribution/place These are directed toward a target market, which is a group of actual or potential buyers at which the organization is aiming its products. These 4Ps are the controllable factors in marketing because usually a marketer has direct control over the design, the price, the means and amount used in promoting, and ways that the product is distributed to reach its final consumer.
Lecture 110 Marketing Concept Promotion/4Ps The basic objectives of promotion are to Inform,Persuade, Remind: -Advertising: any paid form of non-personal communication about an organization, good, service, person, or idea by an identified sponsor -Personal selling: two way flow of communication between a buyer and seller for making sales/building customer relationships -Sales promotion: short term incentives to encourage purchase -Publicity: non-personal, indirectly paid presentation about an organization, good, service, person, or idea
Lecture 111 Marketing Concept Customer satisfaction Customer satisfaction is the main objective of the marketing concept. 1)The achievement of organizational goals depends on determining the needs and wants of current and potential customers and delivering the desired satisfactions more effectively and efficiently than do competitors. 2) The idea is that a focus on only increasing sales, will not necessarily meet buyer needs, and could therefore result in decreased sales. E.g., promising unrealistic delivery schedules to customers could increase sales temporarily but might finally chase away millions of dollars in future business from customers who no longer trust you. 3) On the other hand, a blind focus on customer satisfaction could result in decrease in profits. E.g., increasing quality and lowering prices might result in great customer satisfaction, but could also result in such high costs that the company can no longer exist
