  • What is marketing?It is about understanding the wants and needs of a target market and developing and implementing a strategy to introduce, build awareness of, and promote the product or service to this target.
  • The 4 P’s of Marketing – or the Marketing Mix.The “C” stands for Customer. All elements of the marketing mix revolve around the customer and must be “customer centric.”And your customer is considered to be your Target Market.
  • What is a target market? It is the market that is “most likely” to purchase your goods and services.You need to understand what your target market wants and needs. You need to build out a profile of them. So you know who they are and what they look like – eventually, you will be looking for more of them.
  • To build out a profile of your target market, you need to answer a number of questions. When you know what they look like, it will make it easier to find them.
  • From Wikipedia.org - Differentiation is the process of describing the differences between products or services, or the resulting list of differences. This is done in order to demonstrate the unique aspects of your product and create a sense of value. Differentiation is a source of competitive advantage. However, for the differentiation to matter, it must resonate with the target market. This is Key.Differentiation ties into Positioning.
  • From Wikipedia.org. In the early 1940s, Ted Bates & Company carried out extensive market research on successful advertising campaigns. In particular they identified two desirable attributes: the penetration and the usage pull.A common mistake is to use price reduction as a USP. This is probably the easiest and possibly the costliest of approaches.A USP must do the following:Each advertisement must make a proposition to the consumer. Not just words, not just product puffery, not just show-window advertising. Each advertisement must say to each reader: "Buy this product, and you will get this specific benefit." The proposition must be one that the competition either cannot, or does not, offer. It must be unique—either a uniqueness of the brand or a claim not otherwise made in that particular field of advertising. The proposition must be so strong that it can pull over new customers to your product.
  • Crest is Procter & Gamble's popular toothpaste that was first introduced to consumers in 1955. It was positioned as a Therapeutic brand – not a cosmetic brand – as the other toothpastes were. Crest was the first fluoride toothpaste clinically proven to be effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay.
  • During the mid 1950s, Crest struggled to hold on to less than 10% market share. All other toothpastes were marketed as a cosmetic product. But not Crest – they had promising clinical results showing some therapeutic benefit – fighting cavities.(Harvard Business School - Working Knowledge)
  • In 1960, Crest would dominate toothpaste sales for thirty years. What changed? P&G spent big to make Crest a therapeutic as well as a cosmetic product, and the endorsement of the American Dental Association shot Crest into orbit. The endorsement: Crest is an "effective decay-preventive dentifrice that can be of significant value."In 1960 Crest was given a "category B" endorsement by the ADA, indicating a reasonable level of effectiveness in preventing tooth decay. This was enough to set it apart from all other toothpastes on the market and to convince many consumers that its therapeutic claims were genuine. Within two years, Crest's market share had leapt to over 30 percent, making it the new market leader. By 1969 – their market share was nearly 40%.
  • Perceived Value – It is the perception of Value held by the Prospect or Customer. What marketers do is to elevate the perceived value of the target market for the product.There a many ways to do this.
  • Packaging – PerfumeOn the left - Caron's Poivre: $2,000 (2oz) To the right - Hermès' 24 Faubourg: $1,500 (1oz)
  • Limit the quantity available. Make the product a status symbol. The desire for status is one of the key emotional sales triggers.
  • Local Bakery made delicious tasting, beautiful Wedding Cakes. Bakery didn’t sell as many wedding cakes as they felt they should.They did research – they found their price was about 25% less then the surrounding competition. In the Wedding business – customers expect to spend money – an lots of it: The Wedding Gown, Photographer, Hall, Invitations, Caterer, Cake, Gifts, etc.People would come in to sample the wedding cakes - Looks great, tastes great, low price??? – what’s wrong with this picture?If your product’s value goes against their beliefs, they won’t buy it.So, the bakery raised their prices – to match what people expected – “a high price.” Unit sales increased by about 30 %.
  • We use to get small muffins for a $1.00.Now they are huge and sell for $2.00 – or more.
  • Apple ran a promotion from May 28, 2009 to September 8, 2009. College students, as well as faculty and education staff, could get a free iPod Touch with the purchase of a new Mac. By bundling, you increase the perceived value of the overall purchase.A hamburger, French fries and a drink – the classic fast food bundle.
  • Market Segmentation definition.From: http://www.marketsegmentation.co.uk/segmentation_tmsc.htmNote: A “Niche” is a more narrowly defined group – typically a small market whose needs are not well served. Kotler, 2000.
  • Proctor & Gamble has developed and marketed detergents with specific characteristics to meet the needs of unique market segments.
  • Cheer® helps protect against fading, color transfer and fabric wear in powder or liquid, with or without bleach.
  • Dreft® is a specially formulated detergent that rinses out thoroughly, leaving clothes soft next to a baby's skin. Dreft has been the No. 1 choice of pediatricians for years.
  • Era® is a powerful laundry detergent that is tough on stains.
  • Gain® laundry detergent and fabric softener provide excellent cleaning power and a smell that says clean.
  • Ivory Snow® - Mild cleansing benefits for a gentle, pure and simple clean.
  • Tide® - Fabric cleaning and care at its best.
  • Marketing TacticsTelevision, Radio, Trade Shows, Trade Publications, Newspapers, Online Advertising, Social Media, Email Marketing, Publicity, Outdoor billboards, etc.
