Marketing: the process involving the activities necessary to enable individuals and  organizations to obtain what they need and want through exchanges with others and to develop  ongoing exchange relationships. Necessary Factors for successful marketing customers:      ultimate customer: buy goods and services for their own use      organizational customer: buy goods and services for resale customers needs and wants:      need: anything physical or psychological. If unmet it is called a GAP      wants: a persons desire and preferences to satisfy a basic need. what gets exchanged:      products: something tangible      service: less tangible and provided by people exchange create value:      customers buy benefits not products, so the trick is that different customers see different  benefits           example with car buying: need: transportation > benefit sought: social acceptance > choice criteria: brand name, color, rare, year > product/ service/ features: big motor, warranty, sunroof,  heated seats, navigation, stereo >                                                    brand/ supplier chosen: Cadillac, Mercedes, BMW, Volvo    You want to create long term customers. Ex: 10 people renting uniforms for $8/week. $80.00  per week. They must buy 11 shirts and 11 pants, so they can pick up 5 dirty shirts and 5 clean  shirts dropped off and 1 uniform on.                                                                           multiply by 10 people= 220 uniforms * $3.50=  $770.00 for cost.   To keep these people long term: keep good wills (be proactive and ask them how they are  doing) define your market:          it must satisfy a need or a want and then understand the customers resources          market segment: contains people who are relatively homogeneous in their needs, their  wants, and the product benefits they seek. strategic marketing management involves a seller trying to determine the following points in an  effort to define the target market:      which customer needs and wants are currently not being satisfied by completive product  offerings.      How desired benefits and choice criteria vary among potential customers and how to identify  the resulting segments by demographic variables such as age, sex, lifestyle, or some other  characteristics.      which segments to target, and which product offerings and marketing programs appeal most  to customers in those segments.      how to position the product to differentiate it from competitors' offerings and give the firm a  sustainable competitive advantage. Formulating a marketing plan      Objectives: sales volume, market share, profitability.      Competitive advantage: hard to duplicate and sustainable over time.      Good marketing manager to carry out this plan. The 4 P's      Product, Place, Price, Promotion A marketing plan is a written document detailing the current situation with respect to  customers, competitors, and the external environment and providing guidelines for objectives,  marketing actions, and resource allocations over the planning period for either an existing or a  proposed product or service. Example on page 20 Corporate growth strategy:      Expansion:           Increasing share of existing market by researching what they want, lower your price,  offer rewards, customer service           Develop new products: example would be Amazon with streaming or Cintas comes out  with new products first           Selling existing products in new segments by going overseas and expanding: example  would be NFL in England           Diversification:                (forward) Vertical integration: when a firm moves downstream in terms of the  product flow. So like cutting out the middle man.                Backward integration: when a firm moves upstream, so when they gain a middle man/ supplier                Related (concentric) diversification: no common products but can benefit each other.  Cintas started out as a uniform company                                                                         and the acquired shred it to expand their business.                Unrelated (conglomerate) diversification: financial purposes. they join forces with a  company not related to your product at all. It is just for financial reasons. Growth and profit do not always happen together: Some companies may spend a lot of money to  grow further and reap the reward later. A quick solution to gain profit is to do a large layoff.
