  4. 4. A little history…<br /><ul><li>Kotler and Levy (1969) first introduced the concept of social marketing</li></ul>They proposed that marketing is a “pervasive, societal activity that goes considerably beyond the selling of toothpaste, soap, and steel”<br />First time that marketing was considered for organizations, persons, and ideals<br />The term “Social Marketing” was officially introduced in 1971<br />
  5. 5. Social Marketing Key Themes<br />Research and Evaluation are the key components<br />The primary focus is on the consumer <br />For social marketing to be an effective strategy, it is critical to learn what people want or need rather than persuading individuals to buy a good<br />Marketing talks TO the consumer, not about the product<br />
  6. 6. Essential Features<br />It is a distinct discipline<br /> within the field of marketing<br />It is for the good of society<br /> as well as the target audience<br />It relies on the principles <br />and techniques developed by <br />commercial marketing<br />
  7. 7. Applications<br />Social marketers typically attempt to encourage their target audience to partake in four types of behavior change<br />Accept a new behavior (e.g., Breastfeeding)<br />Reject a potentially undesirable behavior (e.g., Smoking)<br />Modify a current behavior (e.g., Increased Exercise)<br />Abandon an undesirable behavior (e.g., Drinking and Driving)<br />4 Major areas where social marketing techniques are utilized: Health Promotion, Injury Prevention, Environmental Protection, and Community Mobilization<br />
  8. 8. Social Marketing approaches to influence behavior…<br />Downstream Approach or horizontal perspective- addresses barriers/benefits on the individual level<br />Midstream Approach-attempts to reach individuals who have the ability to influence others in the target community including family members, co-workers, friends and neighbors<br />Upstream Approach- attempts to alter policies, regulations, and laws to influence societal behavior change<br />
  9. 9. Cultural Norms and Social Marketing<br />Social Marketing Campaigns are affected by social, cultural, and regulatory environments <br />Campaigns must take these factors into account in order to maximize effectiveness<br />Formative research (e.g., focus groups, surveys, interviews, etc.) is a necessary component of designing a social marketing campaign<br />
  10. 10. Taking into account social, cultural, and environmental norms…<br />Examples: <br />Anti-hepatitis B campaign in China <br />Anti-HIV/AIDS Case study in Mexico <br />Anti-Dengue Fever campaign in Singapore<br />
  11. 11. 4 P’s of Social Marketing<br />“The genus of modern marketing is not the 4 P’s, or audience research, or even exchange, but rather the management paradigm that studies, selects, balances, and manipulates the 4 P’s to achieve behavior change. We keep shortening the marketing mix to the 4 P’s…It is the mix that matters the most.” –Bill Smith, Academy for Educational Development<br />4 P’s- Product, Price, Place, Promotion<br />Must be developed simultaneously or <br /> as a “mix” not as isolated strategies<br />
  12. 12. PRODUCT<br />Concrete physical products, services, practices, AND intangible ideas (most often the case in the field of public health)<br />People must believe that there is a problem, and that the product being offered is a good solution to that problem<br />
  13. 13. PRICE<br />What the consumer must do in order to attain the social marketing product<br />The price of a product an be monetary, involve time and effort, require the consumer to give something up, or involve discomfort or condemnation <br />
