  • The Micro-environment consists of the factors close to the business (usually involving business relationships) that affect its ability to serve its customers.  We can break the micro-environment down into specific segments:
  • Inside the Company, marketing managers must work closely with other company departments. They have to depend on, and take other groups, into account.  These groups can consist of top management, finance, research and development, purchasing, operations, and accounting. Marketers must work in harmony with other company departments to create customer value and relationships.
  • Suppliers provide the resources you need to produce the products and services that you are selling.  Supplier's not only supply you with resources, they also can partner with you in the customer value delivery system.
  • They can include resellers, physical distribution firms, marketing service agencies, and financial intermediaries.
  • These include wholesalers and retailers. Resellers often perform their tasks more cheaply than the company can perform by itself.Physical ie: from the factory to a warehouse and then to the stores.
  • Marketing Services Agencies usually consist of marketing research firms, advertising agencies, consultants, and media firms. As example, Advertising agencies help provide freshcreative ideas for your campaigns and strategic marketing efforts.Financial Intermediaries help you use money.  They typically include banks, credit companies, insurance companies, other businesses that help you conduct financial transactions or insure against the risks associated with the buying and selling of goods and services.
  • The marketing concept states that in order for your marketing to be successful, your business must provide greater customer value and satisfaction thanyour competitors do. You must do more than just give your customers what you think they need, or they say they need. Marketer must gain a strategic advantage by positioning the products and services against the competitors in the minds of the customers.
  • Publics can help, or hinder your ability to get your message out to your customers, and collect value from them.
  • Customers are the key to sales.  If you don't have customers, you can't sell anything. Managers must continually study customer needs and try to anticipate how they are developing so they can meet these needs effectively now and in the future. However not all customers are the same.  Managers must actively study five distinct categories of customer markets.
