Principles of Marketing MARK 3000 / 3001 Jan 26 – Marathon Gas Station Guest Speakers Fun Fact Quiz: - There are 5 petroleum refining companies in Fortunes 500 (Exxon, Chevron, Phillips, Valero + Marathon) - Marathon makes 3-5 cents per dollar sold - The last petroleum refinery built in the US was in 1976 Background: - Marathon was created in Ohio in 1887 - It is the #1 seller in the Midwest region - Oil is produced in Louisiana and sent up a pipeline to the markets they’re being sold in - There are two divisions in Marathon’s company: o Wholesale / commercial accounts: large customer base; impersonal o Brand marketing: 7-9 customers; very personal Marathon’s Marketing Environment: 1. Our customer (known as distributors or jobbers) 2. The retailers (gas stations) 3. The end user (consumers like us) 4 Ps of Marathon: Product: they sell not only fuel but… - Their company, people, logistics, image, programs, quality of products and must maintain strong customer relations - Gasoline quality campaigns: Marathon = STP (this mixes with the gasoline to make Marathon’s gas unique from Shell, BP, etc.) Price: gas is a commodity that’s price is determined by a complex market - Marketing based price should always be a last resort o Cannot promise a customer a certain gas price since they fluctuate so often o Crude oil costs equal 62% per gallon (price weighed heavily on the barrel prices) - Location also determines price o Regional price factors = state taxes (which differ immensely from state to state) Place: - Goes from the refineries (produce the oil)  terminals (store the oil)  transport truck (transport the oil)  retailers (sell the oil) - Between the terminals + transport trucks, the STP is mixed into the oil to make it unique o The transport trucks are an independent company and all responsibility transfers from Marathon to them once they pick up the oil Promotion: Market to either the distributors or the end consumers - Target the primetime for gas fill-ups (3pm-7pm) Jan 28 – Consumer Behavior We only covered a small portion of this chapter so I will include these notes with the rest of Chapter 6 notes next week.
