Editor's Notes

  1. Marketing creates demand for a product, which in turn drives revenue. Greater demand creates the need for companies to hire new workers, while revenue (top line) contributes to a company’s bottom line (profits), which allow the company to be more fully engaged in socially responsible activities.
  2. Experiences include a trip to Disney World, Fantasy baseball camp, a cruise. Events can include trade shows, the Olympics, Super Bowl, etc. Properties include real estate as well as stocks and bonds. Organizations use marketing to connect with their target market. Information is marketed by universities, textbook publishers, newspapers, etc. Ideas include “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk”
  3. Marketers are individuals, groups, associations, companies, etc. that seek a response, such as attention, a purchase, donation, vote, etc., from another party which is called the prospect.
  4. Negative – consumer’s dislike a product and may pay to avoid, such as with dental work Nonexistent – consumers are unaware of or uninterested in the product or service Latent – There is no product on the market that can satisfy consumer needs Declining – Consumers purchase a product less and less frequently, or not at all. For example, the sale of albums (vinyl and CD’s) are declining significantly. Irregular – A products demand varies by time, such as on a seasonal basis. Full – Consumers are buying all the products that enter into the market. Overfull – There are more buyers than product available. Unwholesome – Consumers are attracted to products that have undesireable social consequences, such as cigarettes or gambling.
  5. Economist describe a market as a collection of buyers and sellers who transact over a particular product or product class. There are five basic markets – Manufacturer, resource (financial, labor, raw materials), intermediary (wholesalers, resellers, etc), consumer, and government.
  6. Marketplace – physical locations (such as retail store) Marketspace – digital location (online retailer) Metamarkets – The cluster of complementary products and services related in consumers mind, but spread across diverse set of industries.
  7. Major societal forces, such as information technologies, globalization, increased competition, and a more informed consumer have altered the marketplace has changed significantly. While these have created challenges, organizations have responded with new capabilities
  8. CMOs must have strong quantitative skills, to accompany their qualitative skills. Must be entrepreneurial as well as a team player. However, the CMO nor the marketing department can be solely responsible for marketing. It must be undertaken by the entire organization. David Packard of Hewlett-Packard is quoted as saying: “Marketing is far to important to be left to the marketing department.”
  9. The five distinct marketing concepts are: Production, Product, Selling, Marketing, and Holistic. These philosophies have evolved over time and began with the production concept. The evolution of a new marketing concept does not mean that all companies are changing. Many companies continue to operate under the production concept. Under a production philosophy the company will seek to mass produce products and to distribute them on a wide scale. The belief is that consumers prefer products that are widely available and inexpensive. The product concept proposes that consumers prefer products that have higher quality, performance, or are more innovative. Often, managers focus too much on the product (a better mousetrap) but this does not always equal success. The selling concept argues that members of a market will not purchase enough product on their own so companies use the “hard-sell” to increase demand. Typically used with unsought goods such as insurance or cemetery plots, or when companies face overcapacity. The marketing concept first emerged in the 1950’s and focuses more on the customer with a “sense-and-respond” attitude. Companies that have embraced the marketing concept have been shown to achieve superior performance than competitors. The holistic concept takes a philosophy that everything matters in marketing. Figure 1.3 (next slide) outlines the Holistic Marketing Concept.
  10. Relationship marketing seeks to build mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with key constituents in order to earn and retain their business. The four key constituents are: customers, employees, partners, and member of the financial community. Attracting a new customer can cost five times as much as retaining existing customers so building long-term relationships makes financial sense for the company. Marketing networks consist of the company and its supporting stakeholders who have built a mutually profitable business relationship.
  11. Integrated marketing holds that all activities undertaken by the company should create, communicate, and deliver value. Further, all new activities should take into consideration all other marketing activities.
  12. Internal marketing is the task of hiring, training, and motivating able employees to serve customers well. You can’t promise excellent service if you can’t deliver excellent service.
  13. Marketers must understand both the financial and nonfinancial returns to a business and society from marketing programs and activities. Financial accountability involves the justification of marketing expenditures in terms of financial returns. But they must also think about the ethical, environmental, legal, and social aspects of their activities.
