Jerome McCarthy, also at the Harvard Business School in the early 1960s, suggested that the Marketing Mix contained 4 elements: product, price, place and promotion Marketing mix is the set of marketing tool the firm uses to pursue its marketing objectives in target market.
  • 2. The four Ps are: Product: The product aspects of marketing deal with the specifications of the actual goods or services, and how it relates to the end-user's needs and wants.

  • 5. It is a form of marketing developed from direct response marketing campaigns conducted in the 1960's and 1980's which emphasizes customer retention and continual satisfaction rather than individual transactions and per-case customer resolution. Relationship marketing differs from other forms of marketing in that it targets an audience with more directly suited information on products or services which suit retained customer's interests, as opposed to direct marketing, which focuses upon acquisition of new clients by targeting majority demographics based upon prospective client lists. According to Leonard Berry relationship marketing can be applied when there are alternatives to choose from; when the customer makes the selection decision; and when there is an ongoing and periodic desire for the product or service. A key principle of relationship market is the retention of customers through varying means and practices to ensure repeated trade from preexisting customers by satisfying requirements above those of competing companies through a mutually beneficial relationship. Relationship marketers speak of the "relationship ladder of customer loyalty".

  • 10. Conclusions/findings Recommendations Appendices Bibliography Consumer Buying Behavior Distinct characteristics of purchase decision-making in the contexts of professional consumer services and organizational and consumer buying. Three aspects: the factors involved, the purchase-decision task, and the nature of the decision-making process. Professional consumer services represents a unique setting for purchase decision- making and cannot be considered equivalent to the organizational or consumer setting. More… Buyer behaviour is focused upon the needs of individuals, groups and organisations We begin at the bottom level. Physiological needs such as food, air, water, heat, and the basic necessities of survival need to be satisfied. At the level of safety, man has a place to live that protects him from the elements and predators. At the third level we meet our social and belongingness needs i.e. we marry, or join groups of friends, etc. The final two levels are esteem and self-actualisation. Fewer people satisfy the higher level needs. Esteem means that you achieve something that makes you recognized and gives personal satisfaction, for example writing a book. Self-actualisation is achieved by few. Here a person is one of a small number to actually do something. For example, Neil Armstrong self-actualised as the first person to reach the Moon. Buyer Decision Process The marketing mix inputs (four P's price, place, promotion, and product) are adapted and focused upon the consumer The psychology of each individual considers the product or service on offer in relation to their own culture, attitude, previous learning, and personal perception The consumer then decides whether or not to purchase, where to purchase, the brand that he or she prefers, and other choices.
