      The Marketing Mix
    • 5. Product
      • Tourism products and services are designed for and continuously adapted to match changing needs, expectations and budget of the target market
    • 6. Place
      • Not only the location of the tourist attraction or facility but the location of points of sale that provide customers with access to tourist products
      • eg. I-site, accommodation, cafe
    • 7. Price
      • Used to achieve predetermined sales volume and revenue objectives
      • Price gives a product or service a perceived value in the eyes of the consumer
        • How would you use price to counteract demand exceeding supply?
    • 8. Promotion
      • The most visible of the 4p’s
      • Promotional techniques aim to increase awareness and demand for products
    • 9. Marketing Services
      • Tourism is a service.
      • Services differ from physical products,
        • This needs to be taken into account when marketing them
    • 10. Characteristics of Services
      • Intangibility
      • Heterogeneity
      • Temporary ownership
      • Perishability
      • Inseparability
    • 11. Intangibility
      • Not the physical portion (tangible) of the product
        • Performance or experience rendered by the service provider to the service consumer
      • Most tourism products are a mixture of tangible and intangible
    • 12. Inseparability
      • Services are usually produced and consumed at the same time
        • Think of a restaurant meal
      • This can make it difficult to separate the provider of the service from the service itself.
    • 13. Perishability
      • Services cannot be saved or stored as they expire during the simultaneous production and consumption process
        • Aircraft seat
        • Restaurant meal
        • Amusement park ride
    • 14. Heterogeneity
      • Standardisation
        • Difficult to achieve in a people based service industry
          • Quality control plays an important part
        • What forms of standardization can you think of?
    • 15. Ownership
      • Service customers usually only have access to or use a facility where a service is performed
        • Use of a hotel room for a holiday – you occupy the space only and have temporary use of the facilities
    • 16. How Tourism Differs
      • Tourism is more supply-led than other services
        • All ready have the product then research which market might be interested in purchasing it.
        • Dunedin the destination is already here who wants to visit.
      • Tourism product might involve the co-operation of several suppliers .
        • e.g. Package holiday
    • 17. How Tourism Differs
      • Tourism is a complex, extended product experience with no predictable critical evaluation point.
        • Pre trip anticipation and post trip reflection
        • While trips to the same destination may be the same different variables can make the trip different – and hard to evaluate against
    • 18. How Tourism Differs
      • Tourism is a high-involvement, high-risk product to its consumers
        • Involves committing large sums of money to something reasonably unknown
      • Tourism is a product partly constituted by the dreams and fantasies of its customers .
        • Unlike banking and car repair, tourism is not consumed for rational, functional purposes.
    • 19. How Tourism Differs
      • Tourism is a fragile industry susceptible to external forces beyond the control of its suppliers
        • Tourism organisations sometimes have to make rapid responses to crises in the form of product redesign, price reductions or promotional damage limitation.

    • 22. People - Employees

        • Physical appearance, behaviour, knowledge and attitude has a powerful impact on customers perception of the tourism product

    • 23. People - Employees
      • Ensure staff are trained to ensure the product is delivered in accordance with the marketing strategic plan.

    • 24. Process
      • Process is inseparable product
        • If any part of the process is found to be unsuitable by the consumer, it could result in a negative evaluation of the whole product.

      • Defined as the built environment owned and controlled by a tourism organisation
      • The tangible aspect of the tourism product
      • May be used to facilitate the service delivery process e.g. layout and signage
