Chapman Professor of BusinessAdministration, EmeritusHarvard Business SchoolUSAABSTRACTWe examine the nascent area of corporatemarketing by making reference to Balmer’sconceptual work on the area (Balmer 1998, 2001,2006) and Greyser’s historical overview ofmarketing written for the Marketing ScienceInstitute (Greyser 1997). In this article we furtherelaborate why the corporate-level concepts ofcorporate identity, corporate branding, corporatecommunications and corporate reputation shouldbe integrated under the umbrella title ofcorporate marketing.3WORKING PAPER SERIESThe right of John M.T.

  3. 3. INTRODUCTIONLike the Roman God Janus, we gain perspectiveby looking both backward and forward. Inlooking forward we conclude that marketing isundergoing another paradigm shift and isincreasingly characterised by having aninstitutional-wide focus. Balmer (1998, 2001,2006) in observing the above, has given the label“corporate marketing” to the area.Since the 1950s various concepts about corporate-wide marketing have captured the imagination ofscholars and practitioners (corporate identity,corporate branding, corporate image, corporatereputation, and corporate communications.). Eachof these concepts has its own intellectual rootsand practice-based adherents. While individualcorporate-level concepts provide a powerful, andradical, lens through which to comprehendorganisations, these individual perspectives arenecessarily limited. For this reason an integratedapproach to marketing at the institutional levelwould seem to be highly desirable and thus theneed for what Balmer calls “corporate marketing”and what we in our book “Revealing theCorporation” (Balmer and Greyser 2003) termedcorporate-level marketing.In our article, we marshal the literature relating tothe historiography of marketing and use this as aplatform for our examination of the embryonicarea of corporate marketing.We explain that a corporate marketing philosophyrepresents a logical stage of marketing’s evolutionand introduce Balmer’s (2006) revised corporatemarketing mix (the 6Cs) as an illustrative frameworkrepresenting the key concerns that underpin thisexpanded viewpoint of marketing. In addition, weexplain why marketing (rather than other areas ofmanagement) represents the logical disciplinarydomain relating to the territory we are treating.In this article we draw on a range of sourcesincluding our own scholarship on the area. This isnot for purposes of self-aggrandisement but forpurely practical reasons. In truth, the canon ofwork on the area is modest and we hope that ourobservations will engender interest in what (webelieve) is likely to emerge as a progressively vitalarea of marketing. In looking backwards we brieflyreflect on how marketing has evolved to itspresent state. Such retrospection not onlyprovides a platform to look ahead but also givesus permission-intellectually, and perhapspsychologically-to speculate about the nature ofcorporate-level marketing.From the outset, we acknowledge that anydiscussion of marketing is beset by a number ofdifficulties including the lack of consensus as toits nature. We note that Crosier (1975) found noless that fifty definitions within the literaturewhich broadly envisioned marketing in terms of aprocess, a philosophy and as a businessorientation. Similar discussions are likely tocharacterise on-going discussion relating tocorporate marketing as it has in relation to moretraditional notions of marketing (see Gummesson1991). From our perspective, we regard corporatemarketing as a philosophy rather than as afunction.MARKETING: REFLECTIONS ON THE PASTWhat is marketing’s historiography? What erashave passed in reaching the present? Of course,the importance of having a customer focus haslong been recognised and pre-dates theemergence of marketing as a cognate area ofmanagement. For instance, Frank Taussig, aformer President of the American EconomicAssociation stated back in 1912 that, “We mustaccept the consumer as the final judge”(Economist 2006). In a seminal work by LaLonde(see Greyser 1997) the existence of company-wideconsumer orientation was traced back to the1920s. However, it was during the 1950s and1960s that the marketing philosophy andfunction began to be elucidated by scholars andadopted by managers. Key proponents of theabove include Drucker (1954), Levitt (1960) andKotler and Levy (1969). In terms of the marketingmix the contributions made by Borden (1964) andMcCarthy (1960) are noteworthy. From apractitioner perspective, Jack McKitterick (thenVice President of General Electric) is credited asproviding the first articulation of the marketingconcept. Speaking at a meeting of the AmericanMarketing Association in 1957 he remarked that:“the principal task not so muchto be skilfull in making the customer do whatsuits the interests of the business as to be skillfulin conceiving and then making the business dowhat suits the interest of the customer.” (inGreyser 1997)In a similar vein, Robert Keith (in Greyser 1997)writing in the Journal of Marketing, and makingreference to his own organisation’s historicaldevelopment, made a clear distinction betweenhaving a production/manufacturing orientation, asales focus and, finally, a truly marketingorientation. Greyser (1997) reflecting upon Keith’stripartite categorisations (and the more recentrelationship marketing perspective) observed that4WORKING PAPER SERIES
  4. 4. each is underpinned by a centralquestion/concern which he detailed as follows:1 Production and Manufacturing Orientation:“Can we make it?”2 Sales Orientation:“Can we sell what we can make?”3 Marketing Orientation”Can we determine what consumers, or a groupof consumers, want that we can make and sellprofitably within our zones of skills?”4 Relationship Marketing Orientation:“Can we generate continuing business (loyaltypurchasing) via consumer/customersatisfaction with what-and how-we make, sell,and service?To us, corporate-level marketing represents afurther stage of development:5 Corporate-level Marketing Orientation:“Can we, as an institution, have meaningful,positive and profitable bilateral on-goingrelationships with customers, and otherstakeholder groups and communities?From the outset we wish to make it clear thatcorporate marketing has a general applicability toentities whether they are corporations, companies,not-for-profit organisations as well as othercategories such as business alliances, cities and soon. A key attribute of corporate-level marketing is itsconcern with multiple exchange relationships withmultiple stakeholder groups and networks. Anotherfeature is the importance accorded to the temporaldimension with there being fidelity not only topresent relationships but those of the past and thoseprospective relationships of the future. (Such aperspective has traditionally characterised mutualentities such as Building Societies, Co-operatives andPartnerships; John Lewis is one such example.)FROM PRACTICE TO POWER RELATIONSHIPSAgain, taking another retrospective and drawingon his collaborative work with the legendaryRaymond A. Bauer (late HBS Professor), as well asthat of his own, Stephen Greyser offered atripartite analysis of marketplace relationshipsbetween marketers and consumers, especially withregard to power and influence (Greyser 1997).The three types of relationship have been termedManipulative (a critic’s model),Service (a pro-business model), andTransactional (an exchange-based model)Each model employs different assumptions aboutthe power/balance in the marketplace, the originof consumer needs and desires, the type ofconsumer power exercised, the “warning” toconsumers/or business that pervades themarketplace, and the role of the marketer. To us,corporate marketing represents a logical fourthstage in terms of the above. We call this stage:Expectational (an stakeholder-institutional model)The table provided by Owens and Greyser (Greyser1997) relating to the above has been adapted byus so as to accommodate the above and is to befound in Figure One.5WORKING PAPER SERIESFIGURE 1: COMPARING AND CONTRASTING THE FOUR MODE OF POWER RELATIONSHIPS IN MARKETINGPower Balance in theMarketing PlaceOrigin of ConsumerNeeds/DesiresType of ConsumerPowerMarketplace WarningRole of MarketerThe ManipulativeModelMarketers DominateWith MarketersForces ConsumerChoice“Caveat Emptor”Buyer BewareTo Persuade/SeduceConsumersThe Consumer’sAdversaryThe TransactionalModelConsumer-MarketerBalanceWith Consumer andMarketersConsumer Choice“Caveat Omnes”All BewareTo Work withConsumersThe Consumer’sPartnerThe ServiceModelConsumer DominateWith ConsumersConsumer Sovereignty“Caveat Venditor”Buyer BewareTo Service/Cater toConsumersThe Consumer’sServantThe CorporateModelConsumers andStakeholders DominateWith Consumers andStakeholdersConsumer andStakeholder Sovereignty“Caveat Societas”Company BewareTo work withConsumers andStakeholdersThe Stakeholders/ServantAssumptionAboutModelBalmer (2006) adapted from Owens and Greyser (in Greyser 1997)
  5. 5. CORPORATE MARKETING: TOWARDS A NEWGESTALT OF THE CORPORATIONBalmer’s (1998) historical analysis of corporate-level constructs sine the 1950s reveals theascendancy of various concepts during differenttime frames. Each has attracted the attention ofscholars and practitioners alike and appears, inpart, to reflect the Zeitgeist of a particular epoch.For instance, the concern with corporate imageduring the 1950s and 1960s and the currentinterest in corporate brands, which dates back to1995, are illustrative.This is also reflected in the special editions of theEuropean Journal of Marketing that haveappeared in 1997, 2001, and 2003 and havefocussed on concepts such as corporate identity,corporate brands, corporate communications,corporate image and corporate reputation. Thesespecial editions have provided a forum fordifferent ontological and epistemological issues tobe aired relating to the above.The integrative approach adopted here in relationto corporate marketing is not without parallel: thelatter is most conspicuous in the fields ofcommunication. This can be seen in the growinginterest in integrated marketing communicationsby authors such as Schultz, Tannenbaum andLauterborn (1992) and Nowak and Phelps (1994).Of particular significance is the integration ofinstitutional-level communications. Such aperspective informs the corporate communicationsdomain with the work of Bernstein (1984),Cornelissen, Lock and Gardner (2001) and VanRiel 1995, 2003) being noteworthy. Suchadvances are significant but are necessarilynarrower in conceptualisation in what we advancehere.RAISING THE CORPORATE MARKETING UMBRELLAWhat we find to be enormously exciting is thatwhen the broad topography of the area iscontemplated, the synthesising of corporate-levelconcepts such as corporate identity, corporatebranding and corporate communications and soon offers the promise of a critical breakthrough inthe conceptualisation of organisations bymarketing scholars. This leads to the need to raisethe umbrella of corporate-level marketing.For us, corporate marketing provides a vortex thatis not only pristine but also powerful and practicalin addition. This is a vortex that synthesises the6WORKING PAPER SERIESFIGURE 2: COMPARING THE MAJOR COMPONENTS OF CORPORATE MARKETINGMajor Components of Major Components ofCorporate Marketing Marketing(Balmer 2001) (McGee and Spiro 1990)ORIENTATION Stakeholder CustomerUnderstanding present and Understanding customer’sfuture stakeholder (including wants, needs and behaviourcustomer) wants, needs andbehaviour.ORGANISATIONAL SUPPORT Co-ordinated organisational Co-ordinated organisationalactivities. activities.Undertaken to support Undertaken to supportstakeholder’s orientation customer orientationelicited above. elicited above.END-FOCUS Value creation.

The orchestration ofthese concepts provides the cornerstone ofBalmer’s corporate marketing mix.Figure 3 depicts the six elements (6Cs) ofBalmer’s (2006) corporate marketing mix citedabove and elucidates the importance of eachelement by ascribing a key question whichunderpins each of the six elements. Thedisciplinary foundations for each of the sixelements are additionally outlined. Again, wereiterate that we regard corporate marketing asmore of a philosophy rather than a function. Forthis reason the mix elements should be seen asinforming an organisational-wide philosophyrather than as encompassing a mix of elements tobe orchestrated by a department of corporatemarketing. In essence, the philosophy ofcorporate-level marketing should permeate howpeople in the organisation think and behave onits behalf. (Figure 4 compares the 6Cs of theCorporate Marketing Mix with the more extended11 Ps model of the mix).CharacterThose factors that, in their totality, make oneentity distinct from another. These include keytangible and intangible assets of the organisationas well as organisational activities, markets served,corporate ownership and structure, organisationaltype, corporate philosophy and corporate history.CultureThis refers to the collective feeling of employeesas to what they feel they are in the setting of theentity. These beliefs are derived from the values,beliefs and assumptions about the organisationand its historical roots and heritage. Individualsmay, in part, define themselves in terms oforganisational membership and may, in turn, feelthat they, as individuals, share common valueswith the organisation. Culture is important since itprovides the context in which staff engage witheach other and with other groups such ascustomers: employees represent the “front line” ofthe organisation.CommunicationCorporate communications relates to the variousoutbound communications channels deployed byorganisations to communicate with customers andother constituencies. At its most comprehensive(Total Corporate Communications) it also takesinto account the communications effects ofmanagement, employee and product behaviourand of word-of mouth and media/competitorcommentary (see Balmer and Greyser 2003 p.125).7WORKING PAPER SERIESFIGURE 3: THE 6Cs OF CORPORATE MARKETING MIXBALMER (2006)

  8. 8. ConceptualisationsThis refers to perceptions (conceptualisations)held of the corporate brand by customers andother key stakeholder groups. The latentperception of the organisation held by the abovewill affect their view of and their behaviourtowards the organisation. Such conceptualisationsof the organisation will, of course, differ betweendifferent groups and account needs to be taken ofthis.ConstituenciesCorporate marketing recognises takes that manycustomers also belong to one or indeed manyorganisational constituencies or stakeholdergroups (employees, investors, local communityetc.) and also comes with a realisation that thesuccess of an organisation (and in some cases a“license” to operate) is dependent on meeting thewants and needs of such groups.CovenantA corporate brand is underpinned by a powerful(albeit informal) contract, which can be comparedto a covenant in that customers and otherstakeholder groups often have a religious-likeloyalty to the corporate brand. Whereas legalownership of a corporate brand is vested in anentity, its emotional ownership (and therein itssubstantial value) resides with those who have aclose association with the brand (Balmer 2005).Of course, different groups and individuals mayhave different expectations associated with theinstitutional brand.MARKETING CLAIMS ON CORPORATE MARKETINGIn recent years scholars from managementdisciplines other than marketing have becomeinterested in key corporate-level concepts such ascorporate brands and corporate identity. Oftentheir work is underpinned by a firm theoreticaland empirical base, and can provide meaningfulinsight to thinking on the larger corporate-levelarea. While we acknowledge the contributions ofother management disciplines and recognise thata multi-disciplinary perspective on the area isefficacious, we wish to note why marketing hasstrong claims on this nascent area. We contend(Balmer and Greyser 2003 p.349-350) thatmarketing’s claims on the area are related to its:(a) Inheritance,(b) Prescience,(c) Expedience, and(d) AssemblanceInheritanceOf all the disciplines that have made acontribution to the corporate-level constructsdetailed earlier, marketing has been the mostconspicuous. Consider communication, image,reputation, and branding. These are key conceptswithin the marketing domain, although marketingscholars and practitioners frequently incorporateothers, such as identity. To date, the aboveconcepts have tended to be narrowly conceived bymarketers in terms of products or services ratherthan corporations (or organisations generally.)PrescienceThe notion that the marketing should concernitself with corporate-level concerns is far fromnew. In the 1960s, Kotler and Levy (1969) hadthe prescience to articulate that the marketingconcept should be broadened so as to encompassany entity and that it should be able to beapplied to all areas of business and not justproduct-dominated organisations.More recently, Webster (1992) advanced the viewthat it was de rigueur for marketing to affect aparadigm shift away from products and firms topeople and organisations. As such, there was arequirement for greater scrutiny to be accorded tophenomena which traditionally have been thepreserve of psychologists, organisationalbehaviourists, political economists, andsociologists. In terms of corporate-marketing theinsights gleaned from identity theory as employedby organisational theorists and behaviourists canbe influential in the conceptualisations ofmarketing (See Bhattachara and Sen 2003).Marketing’s entrée into the corporate domain has,already, become a reality. This has been reflectedin the rise of “new” areas of marketing interestsuch as relationship marketing (Gummesson1994), the marketing of services (Lovelock 1983,Booms and Bitner 1992), internal marketing(Berry 1981), marketing for non-profits (Kotlerand Andreason 1996), green marketing (Meffertand Kirchgeorg 1993), and in relation tocorporate brand management (Balmer and Gray2003, Knox and Bickerton 2003), corporatecommunications (Van Riel 1995) and corporateimage and reputation (Kennedy 1977, Dowling2001). Kotler’s (1986) notion of megamarketingwith its recognition of groups “beyond customers,”the importance accorded to political power andpublic opinion, and the importance attached tomarketing networks in their various guises (Achrol1991) all resonate with our comprehension ofcorporate marketing.9WORKING PAPER SERIES
  9. 9. ExpedienceMarketing has been particularly effective indemonstrating its utility to managers. Baker(1999) observed that marketing is a syntheticdiscipline in that it distils insights gained fromother fields (both business and non-business) intoa body of knowledge with an immediate andpractical relevance. In other words, marketing isadept in operationalising theories. It should benoted that the corporate-level constructsmentioned in this article all have a strong appliednature and are in common parlance in businessand consultancy contexts. This has not beenwithout its critics however; the over-reliance onthe marketing mix is case in point (O’Malley andPatterson 1998).AssemblanceMarketing is, and always has been, a repository ofinsights and theories marshalled from otherdisciplines. Traditional marketing draws heavilyfrom a number of management and non-management disciplines such as psychology,economics, and strategy. The assemblance ofdiverse perspectives to form a unified whole hasbeen a basic tenet of marketing. Indeed, Borden(1964), who first devised the marketing mix, wasprofoundly influenced by the work of Culliton(1948) who had envisioned the marketer to befirst and foremost a mixer of ingredients, in otherwords an orchestrator. To some degree thecorporate marketing mix outlined here follows inthis vein but we are sensitive to the fact that anylist of attributes underpinning a marketing mix orphilosophy are likely to be limited (Gronroos1993, Gummesson 1994).CONCLUSIONIn bringing our short article to a close we aremindful that for the last fifty years, or more,marketing scholars, as well as practitioners, haverealised the crucial importance of corporate-levelconcepts, beginning with the concept of thecorporate image and the pioneering work of theEnglish economist Kenneth Boulding. Wecelebrate the 50th anniversary of the publicationof his book, “The Image” this year (Boulding1956). Whereas the marketing concept as appliedto products and services has achieved wideacceptance, the same cannot be said, alas, inrelation to the application of the marketingconcept to organisations in their totality. Whilescholarship relating to individual corporate-levelmarketing constructs is developing apace we notethat integrative perspectives still remain theexception rather the rule. However, we hold thatit is difficult to examine one concept withoutrecourse to another: corporate communication isone prime example of this. In terms ofmanagement, although we hold that corporatemarketing is extrinsically a boardroom and CEOconcern, responsibility for corporate marketingshould be institution wide and should not beassigned to a particular department or directorate.In short, all staff are corporate marketers.What of the future? We acknowledge that forsome the very notion of corporate- level marketingis likely to be contentious especially the notionthat marketing should have a more strategic andinstitutional-wide role. However, we are of thefirm view that the ascendancy of corporatemarketing concerns and concepts (corporatebrands being illustrative) is inexorable. We openedthis article by observing that we gain perspectiveby looking forward and backward. In bringing thiscommentary to a close we are reminded thatTheodore Levitt (1960) fashioned the phrase“marketing myopia”. In this century, such myopiacould reside at the institutional level. As Januswould no doubt have mused “what goes roundcomes around.”10WORKING PAPER SERIES
