  • As far as the business plan is concerned, a marketing plan is a whole entity itself and can be considered a business plan by itself. So, we start with a strategic plan.
  • An organization exists to accomplish something. At first it may have a clear purpose or mission but over time its mission may become unclear. As the organization grows, adds new products and markets, or faces new conditions in the environment it must renew its search for purpose. Management should avoid making its mission too narrow or too broad.
  • Traditionally companies have defined their businesses in product terms (“We manufacture furniture.”) or in technical terms (“We are a chemical-processing firm.”) Mission statements should be market oriented. Products and technologies may eventually become outdated but basic market needs may last forever. AT&T, 3M are examples.
  • The mission leads to objectives- business and marketing. The objective to ‘increase market share” is not as useful as the objective “to increase market share to 15% by the end of the second year.”
  • At one time Ford’s positioning was, “Quality is Job 1”- Buick, “The new symbol for quality in America”- Mazda, “Just feels right”- Toyota, “I love what you do for me”- Jaguar, “A blending of art and machine”- Mercedes, “Engineered like no other car in the world”- Bentley, “The closest a car can come to having wings”
  • Definition of Marketing Mix- the set of controllable tactical marketing tools that the firm blends to produce the response that it wants in the target market.
