WHAT IS MARKETING?
A market can be defined as all the customers sharing a particular need or want. Marketing is the process of developing, pricing, distributing and promoting the goods or services that satisfy such needs. Marketing therefore combines marketing research, new product development, distribution, advertising, promotion, product improvement, and so on. According to this definition, marketing begins and ends with the customer. Truly successful marketing understands the customer so well that the product or service satisfies a need so perfectly that the customer is desperate to buy it. The product almost sells itself. Of course this will only happen if the product or service is better than those of competitors.
Companies are always looking for marketing opportunities - possibilities of filling unsatisfied needs in areas in which they are likely to enjoy a differential advantage, due to their particular competencies. Marketing opportunities are generally isolated by market segmentation - dividing a market into submarkets or segments according to customers 'requirements or buying habits. Once a target market has been identified, a company has to decide what goods or services to offer, always remembering the existence of competitors.
The best-known classification of marketing elements - marketing mix is ??the Four Ps: Product, Price, Place and Promotion. Aspects to be considered in marketing a product include its quality, its features, style, brand name, size, packaging, services and guarantee, while price includes consideration of things like the price list, discounts, the length of the payment period and credit terms. Place in a marketing mix includes such factors as distribution channels, coverage of market locations of points of sale, inventory size, and so on. Promotion groups together advertising, publicity, sales promotion, and personal selling.
