EVOLUTION OF MARKETING marketing Spelled Pronunciation mahr-ki-ting] – noun 1. the act of buying or selling in a market. 2. the total of activities involved in the transfer of goods from the producer or seller to the consumer or buyer, including advertising, shipping, storing, and selling.At the beginning of the century, social life was mostly local. It was followed by aperiod in which commodities were produced on a mass scale. Consumer Marketingoperated on mass marketing principles and business primarily concerned itself withhow to build the best sales force. At the end of the century, there is an emerging globalculture. The major driver of these changes is technology. Technological change hasmoved steadily back focusing on the individual. These changes shape the possibilityand conduct of business. Marketing is especially tied to communication andtransportation revolution. As the tools and reach of marketing increase, the job andresponsibilities of marketers have evolved with them.Philip Kotler formalized this evolution with his book "Marketing Management". Hiskey stages are production, sales and brand management. Each of these is stronglymotivated by technological opportunities, which permit new methods and newopportunities. A fourth stage, a focus on the individual customer, is also important. Asthe new technology of the Internet develops, it reinforces the new marketing emphasis- which in many ways is a return to business at the turn of the centu 14
  15. 15. In today’s technology driven world, a new fast paced digital economy is emerging.Tomorrow there will be companies that will exist only inside computer networks.Most business transactions will be made electronically, directly from the producer tothe consumer, bypassing the supply chain. In the digital marketing environment, theconsumer becomes an integral player in the development of the product. In fact, aconsumer might build the product himself from a wide array of parts provided by theCompany. It is e-commerce that is changing the way products and services areconceived, manufactured, promoted, priced, distributed and sold. The reason beingthat it is much cheaper; it allows vast coverage and helps in serving the customerbetter.ADVERTISING ad⋅⋅ver⋅⋅tis⋅⋅ing Show Spelled Pronunciation [ad-ver- tahy-zing 1. the act or practice of calling public attention to ones product, service, need, etc., esp. by paid announcements in newspapers and magazines, over radio or television, on billboards, etc.: to get more customers by advertising. 2. paid announcements; advertisements. 3. the profession of planning, designing, and writing advertisements. 15
  16. 16. Advertising is a paid form of communication, although some formsof advertising, such as public service announcements, use donatedspace and time. Second, not only is the message paid for, but thesponsor is identified. Third, most advertising tries to persuade orinfluence the consumer to do something, although in some casesthe point of the message is simply to make consumers aware of theproduct or companyFourth and fifth, the message is conveyed through many differentkinds of mass media reaching a large audience of potentialconsumers. Finally, because advertising is a form of masscommunication, it also non-personalA definition of advertising, then, includes all six features Advertising is paid non-personal communication from an identified sponsor using mass media to persuade or influence an audience 16
  17. 17. Functions of AdvertisingAdvertising is an important promotional tool for any marketing campaign.So much so that whenever we think of marketing we think of advertisingalthough it is just one of the marketing tools. Till now only companies witha profit motive went in for advertising. But today government bodies aswell as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) go for high profileadvertising campaigns. The purpose here is not to increase the sales figurebut to increase the awareness of people regarding the relevant topics.Even though each ad or campaign tries to accomplish goals unique to itssponsor, advertising performs three basic functions:1. Provide product or brand information Although many ads are devoid of information, providing the consumer with relevant information that will aid decision making is still the main function of advertising. The information given depends on the needs of the target audience. In the case of purchasing a new suit, needed information might simply include price and outlet location. For technical products, the information is likely to be very detailed.2. Provide incentives to take decision In most instances, consumers are reluctant to change established behavior. Even if there are somewhat dissatisfied with the current product or service, a habit has been established and learning about a new product is deemed difficult. Advertising provides the consumer with reasons to switch brands by presenting
  18. 18. reasons through copy or graphics. Convenience, high quality, lower price, warranties, or a celebrity endorser are all possibilities.3. Provide reminders and reinforcement It’s amazing how much advertising is directed at current customers. Consumers forget why they bought a particular brand of microwave or automobile. Advertising must remind the customer constantly about the name of the brand, its benefits, its value, and so forth. These same messages help reinforce the customers decision. Most television advertising seems to provide this function. 10
  19. 19. Types of AdvertisingAdvertising is a form of selling. It tries to make consumers buy goods or services.Advertisers must be aware of the factors that influence peoples buying habits andthen use advertising strategies based on this knowledge. Advertising can beclassified in number of ways.1. Print Advertising: Newspapers, Magazines, Brochures, Fliers The print media have always been a popular advertising medium. Advertising products via newspapers or magazines is a common practice. In addition to this, the print media also offers options like promotional brochures and fliers for advertising purposes.2. Outdoor Advertising: Billboards, Kiosks, Tradeshows and Events (OOH) Outdoor advertising is also a very popular form of advertising, which makes use of several tools and techniques to attract the customers outdoors. The most common examples of outdoor advertising are billboards, kiosks, and also several events and tradeshows organized by the company. The billboard advertising is very popular however has to be really terse and catchy in order to grab the attention of the passersby. The kiosks not only provide an easy outlet for the company products but also make for an effective advertising tool to promote the company’s products. Organizing several events or sponsoring them makes for an excellent advertising opportunity. The company can organize trade fairs, or even exhibitions for advertising their products. If not this, the company can organize several events that are closely associated with their field.3. Broadcast advertising: Television, Radio and the Internet Broadcast advertising is a very popular advertising medium that constitutes of several branches like television, radio or the Internet. Television advertisements have been very popular ever since they have been introduced. The radio might have lost its charm owing to the new age media however the radio remains to be the choice of small-scale advertisers.
  20. 20. 4. Covert Advertising: Advertising in Movies Covert advertising is a unique kind of advertising in which a product or a particular brand is incorporated in some entertainment and media channels like movies, television shows
  21. 21. or even sports. There is no commercial in the entertainment but the brand or the product is subtly (or sometimes evidently) showcased in the entertainment show.5. Surrogate Advertising: Advertising Indirectly Surrogate advertising is prominently seen in cases where advertising a particular product is banned by law. Advertisement for products like cigarettes or alcohol which are injurious to heath are prohibited by law in several countries and hence these companies have to come up with several other products that might have the same brand name and indirectly remind people of the cigarettes or beer bottles of the same brand. Common examples include Fosters and Kingfisher beer brands, which are often seen to promote their brand with the help of surrogate advertising.6. Public Service Advertising: Advertising for Social Causes Public service advertising is a technique that makes use of advertising as an effective communication medium to convey socially relevant messaged about important matters and social welfare causes like AIDS, energy conservation, political integrity, deforestation, illiteracy, poverty and so on.7. Celebrity Advertising Although the audience is getting smarter and smarter and the modern day consumer getting immune to the exaggerated claims made in a majority of advertisements, there exist a section of advertisers that still bank upon celebrities and their popularity for advertising their products. Using celebrities for advertising involves signing up celebrities for advertising campaigns, which consist of all sorts of advertising including, television ads or even print advertisements.8. Internet Advertising
  22. 22. Internet promotion is one of the newer types of advertising and can beaccomplished in a number of ways. Flash advertising refers to messages thatjump onto your computer screen and often move around. They can be hard toclose and are annoying, but effective at gaining your attention. Pop up andscrolling ads are other examples of these types of advertising. Pay per clickadvertising refers to marketers paying to have their web pages placed high onsearch engine results pages. These are also called sponsored links.
  23. 23. INTERNET MARKETINGTHE ADVENT OF THE INTERNETThe new millennium has brought us on the brink of the I.T. Revolution. This revolution hasbeen aided by the advent of the Internet in a big way. Internet is fast changing the waypeople used to do things. Naturally, the same would have an impact on the advertisers.The Internet has been accepted as the most powerful media for advertising due to theabsence of geographical barriers. The advent of the Internet and its subsequentacceptance has once again challenged the traditional forms of advertising. Advertisersare trying to use the net to advertise their products and hence net their customers.Thus, with the Internet gaining prominence, advertising equations are fast changing. Internet marketing, also referred to as web marketing, online marketing, or eMarketing, is the marketing of products or services over the Internet. Internet marketing ties together creative and technical aspects of the Internet, including design, development, advertising, and sale. The Internet has brought many unique benefits to marketing, one of which being lower costs for the distribution of information and media to a global audience. The interactive nature of Internet marketing, both in terms of providing instant response and eliciting responses, is a unique quality of the medium. Internet marketing is sometimes considered to have a broader scope because it not only refers to digital media such as the Internet, e-mail, and wireless media; however, Internet marketing also includes management of digital customer data and electronic customer relationship management (ECRM) systems
  24. 24. 7 PS OF INTERNET MARKETINGThe four Ps - Product, Price, Place and Promotion have long been associated withmarketing, but things have changed on the Internet. So along with a change in thenature of the four P’s there are three new P’s which are relevant to the internetmarketer: Presentation, Processes and Personalization.1. Product Product on the Internet usually changes form online, and the user experiences it electronically, in the form of text, images and multimedia. Physical goods are usually presented in the form of a detailed online catalogue that the customer can browse through. Technology allows the user to virtually touch and feel the product on the Internet - rotate it, zoom in or zoom out and even visualize the product in different configurations and combination. Content and software are two avatars of digitized products that can be even distributed over the Internet. On the Internet, E-marketing will be based more on the product qualities rather than on the price. Every company will be able to bring down the cost of its products and hence competition will not be on price. It will rather be on the uniqueness of the product. To be able to attract the customers and retain them, the company will have to provide nouvelle and distinct products that forces the net users to purchase and come back for more.2. Price Price has been drastically changed over the Internet. It lets the buyer decides the price. Also it gives the buyers information about multiple sellers selling the same product. It leads to best possible deal for the buyers in terms of price. Pricing is dynamic over the Internet.3. Place
  25. 25. Place revolves around setting up of a marketing channel to reach the customer.Internet serves as a direct marketing channel that allows the producer to reach thecustomer directly. The elimination of the intermediate channel allows the producerto pass the reduced distribution cost to the customer in the form of discounts.
  26. 26. 4. Promotion Promotion is extremely necessary to entice the customer to its website, as there are currently more than one billion web pages. Promoting a website includes both online and offline strategies. Online strategies include search engine optimization, banner ads, multiple points of entry, viral marketing, strategic partnership and affiliate marketing. Presently, the cyberspace is already cluttered with thousands of sites probably selling similar products. For the customers to know of the Company’s existence and to garner information on the kind of products or services that the company is offering, promotion has to be carried out. There can be traded links or banner advertisements for the same. Also the traditional mediums like print, outdoor advertising and television can be used to spread awareness.5. Presentation The presentation of the online business needs to have an easy to use navigation. The look and the feel of the web site should be based on corporate logos and standards. About 80% of the people read only 20% of the web page. Therefore, the web page should not be cluttered with a lot of information. Also, simple but powerful navigational aids on all web pages like search engines make it easy for customer to find their way around.6. Processes
  27. 27. Customer supports needs to be integrated into the online web site. A sales service that will be able to answer the questions of their customers fast and in a reliable manner is necessary. To further enhance after sales service, customers must be able to find out about their order status after the sale has been made.7. Personalization Using the latest software it is possible to customize the entire web site for every single user, without any additional costs. The mass customization allows the company to create web pages products and services that suit the requirement of the user. A customized web page does not only include the preferred layout of the customer but also a pre selection of goods the customer may be interested in. concLusIon
  28. 28. The basic objective of my research was to analyze theawareness among customers for internet banking in INDIA.It gives direction to research tools, research types andtechniques. Although the findings reveal that people knowabout the services but still many people are unaware andmany of them are non – users so the bank should bypromotion try to retain the customers. Banks should lookforward to have some tie – ups with other financialinstitutions to increase the service base. bIbLIoGraPhybooK:-
