Welcome to the first
edition of Marketing!

We are proud to say that our book is the first new, comprehensive textbook in
marketing in over two decades. In the summer of 2004, the American Marketing
Association revised its nearly 20 year old definition of marketing, redefining
marketing as “an organizational function and a set of processes for creating,
communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer
relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders.” Our
book, Marketing, is the first marketing principles textbook to fully integrate this
new definition, emphasizing the value and the role of the customer in marketing
organizations and activities.

When we, the authors, sat down to write this book, it seemed imperative that
the evolution of the field and practice of marketing be at the forefront. We wanted
to be sure that we were fully educating today’s student about current marketing
trends and practices, so we integrated newer concepts such as value creation,
globalization, technology, entrepreneurship, ethics, and services marketing into
the traditional marketing instruction. In this book, we will examine how firms
assess, analyze, create, deliver, communicate, and capture value. We will explore
both the fundamentals in marketing and new influencers, such as value-based
pricing and the Internet that are shaping the way businesses communicate with
their customers in today’s marketing environment.

It is not often that textbook authors get the opportunity to design, plan, and
write a book that is totally up to date and reflects not only the current trends
in the marketplace, but also the needs of instructors and students. During the
writing and revising of this book, over the course of three years, we’ve sought the
advice and expertise of hundreds of marketing and educational professionals,
and we’ve taken all of their guidance to heart. We are grateful to the hundreds
of individuals who participated in the focus groups, surveys, and personal
conversations that helped mold this book, and we hope that you, the reader, will
learn from and enjoy the results.

Regardless of your age, your gender, or the city in which you
live, you already know something about marketing.
You have
been an involved consumer in the marketing process since childhood when, for
example, you accompanied your mother or father to the supermarket and asked to
buy a particular brand of cereal because you saw a friend eating it or heard about
it on television. The prize inside the box of cereal was of value to you as a child; the
nutritional information offered on the box panel was of value to your mother or
father. Once you begin to explore the many ways in which companies and brands
create value for their customers through marketing, you will also begin to appreciate
the complex set of decisions and activities that are necessary to provide you with the
products and services you use every day.

The function of marketing is multi-faceted, but its fundamental
purpose is to create value. Consider these examples:

Not too long ago water was simply one of the most basic
natural elements.
It came out of a faucet in your home and was
consumed for the purposes of drinking, washing, etc. Taking a
cue from European firms like Perrier in France and San Pellegrino
in Italy, US-based firms such as Poland Springs, Arrowhead, and
Aquafina created new products that customers find valuable by
bottling water in attractive and easy to carry packages. Today
bottled water is a $35 billion worldwide industry with US sales in
excess of $6 billion.

Why do people buy roughed-up jeans for well over a hundred dollars when they
could buy Wrangler jeans at Wal-Mart for under twenty?
The answer lies in
marketing brand value: because brands like Diesel and Seven for All Mankind have
created a cache for their brands with edgy advertising and innovative washes and
styles. When trendsetters start to wear these brands, others follow.

• The first section of the text contains four
chapters, and the central theme of the section
is “Assessing the Marketplace.” Following
an introduction to marketing in Chapter 1,
Chapter 2 then focuses
on how a firm develops
a marketing plan. A
central theme of the
chapter is how firms
can effectively create,
capture, deliver and
communicate value to
their customers. Chapter
3 focuses attention
on Marketing Ethics.
An ethical decision
framework is developed
and presented. The key
ethical concepts are linked back to the marketing
plan introduced in Chapter 2. Finally, Chapter
4 (Analyzing the Marketing Environment)
focuses on how marketers can systematically
uncover and evaluate opportunities. Key
elements of scenario planning are introduced
and presented to demonstrate how to analyze
and capitalize on opportunities presented.

• The second section of the book deals
with “Understanding the Marketplace” and is
composed of three chapters. Chapter 5,
Consumer Behavior, focuses on all aspects of
understanding why consumers purchase
products and services. The consumer decision
process is highlighted. Chapter 6, Business-to-
Business Marketing, focuses on all aspects
pertaining to why and how business-to-
business buying takes place. Finally, Chapter 7
focuses on global markets. Thus, the three
chapters move from creating value for the
individual/consumer to the firm/business to
the global level.

• The third section of the book deals with
“Targeting the Marketplace.” Two chapters
compose this section. Chapter 8 focuses on
Segmentation, Targeting, and Positioning. In
this chapter, we focus on how firms segment
the marketplace, then pick a target market and
finally position their good/service in line with
their customers’ needs and wants. Chapter 9 on
Marketing Research identifies the various tools
and techniques that marketers use to uncover
these needs and ensure that they create goods
and services that provide value to their target

The prevalence and power of the Internet have created a marketplace of better informed and savvy

customers than ever before. Those who teach the marketers of the future need to account for the consumer’s

ability to assess the marketplace at their fingertips and discern good value from poor value. This textbook,

Marketing 1e, is all about the core concepts and tools that help marketers create value for customers.

Throughout this book you will find many other examples that define how companies create value for

customers through branding, packaging, pricing, retailing, service, and advertising. We introduce the concept

of value in Chapter 1 and carry it through the entire text:

Marketing devotes three chapters to
Value Creation. The first two, Chapter
10, “Product, Branding, and Packaging
Decisions,” and Chapter 11, “Developing
New Products” cover the development and
management of products and brands. While
many of the concepts involved in developing
and managing services are similar to those of
physical brands, Chapter 12, “Services: The
Intangible Product” addresses the unique
challenges of the marketing of services.

• Pricing is the activity within a firm
responsible for Value Capture by bringing
in money and affecting revenues. Marketing
devotes two chapters to pricing capturing
values for the firm. Chapter 13 examines
the importance of setting the right price, the
relationship between price and quantity sold,
break-even analysis, the impact of price wars,
and how the Internet has changed the way
people shop. Chapter 14 looks specifically at
how to set prices.

• One important reason why Wal-Mart has
become the world’s largest retailer is their
Value Delivery system. They time the
delivery of merchandise to get to stores just

in time to meet customer demand. To achieve
this, they have initiated many innovative
programs with their vendors and developed
sophisticated transportation and warehousing
systems. Marketing devotes two chapters
to value delivery. Chapter 15 takes a look at
the entire supply chain, while Chapter 16
concentrates on retailing.

• Today’s methods of Value Communi-
are more complex because of new
technologies that add e-mail, Blogs, Internet,
and Pod casts to the advertising mix that once
only utilized radio and television to relay
messages to consumers. Marketing devotes
three chapters to value communication. Chap-
ter 17 introduces the breadth of integrated
marketing communications. Chapter 18 is de-
voted specifically to advertising, while Chap-
ter 19 covers personal selling.

• You will also find the value theme integrated
throughout the text in the Adding Value
boxes that occur in each chapter. These features
illustrate how firms find ultimate success by
adding value to their products and services.

In addition to our emphasis on value in Marketing, you will also find
integrated and highlighted coverage of ethics, entrepreneurship, services, and
globalization within the framework of the marketing discipline:

Marketing contains an entire chapter on
Marketing Ethics. Placed early in the text
(Chapter 3), it provides rich illustrations of
corporate responsibility, and introduces an
ethical decision-making framework that is
useful for assessing potentially ethically
troubling situations that are posed throughout
the rest of the book. It therefore sets the tone
for ethical material in each subsequent chapter.
In addition, each chapter contains an Ethical
Dilemma box with a compelling ethical
discussion and end-of-chapter discussion
questions that force students to consider and
evaluate each situation.

• Entrepreneurship. An entrepreneur-
ial spirit pervades most marketing innova-
tions and is necessary to keep firms growing
and healthy. Marketing nurtures that entrepre-
neurial spirit by providing examples of young
entrepreneurial firms and successful entrepre-
neurs wherever possible. Each chapter also
contains an Entrepreneurial Marketing box
that depicts recognizable and interesting young
entrepreneurial firms.

Marketing defines Services as the intangible
product and devotes Chapter 12 to the topic. A
balanced approach to presenting products and
services is used throughout. Examples of great
service businesses and how product-oriented
businesses provide great service abound.

Most firms are involved in Global
at some level. Giant firms such
as Procter & Gamble, Starbucks, and United
Airlines have global operations. But small
entrepreneurial firms are also involved because
they get their materials, products, or services
from firms located in other countries. Global
examples are woven throughout each chapter
of Marketing. In addition, Chapter 7 is devoted
exclusively to the topic.

Ethical Dilemma 7.2

Is “Made in the U.S.A” more a hindrance than a help in U.S. firms’ efforts to penetrate the
global marketplace?22

According to the results of a recent survey of 8,000 consumers in
five countries (Canada, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United Kingdom), being
an American firm may increasingly become a hindrance. The survey found that 20 per-
cent of respondents from Europe and Canada stated that they were consciously avoiding
purchasing U.S. products as a form of protest against U.S. foreign policy, especially its
actions in Iraq.

The survey also asked the respondents if they were intentionally avoiding purchasing
products from 40 U.S. corporations. Corporations viewed as being “more American” fared
the worst. Sixty percent of respondents said that they would not buy Marlboro, and 48
percent claimed they would “definitely avoid” using American Express. The other brands
that respondents stated they were “most avoiding” were Exxon-Mobile, AOL, Chevron,
Texaco, United Airlines, Budweiser, Chrysler, Barbie Dolls, Starbucks, and General Motors.
Adding to the bad news for U.S. corporations, 50 percent of the survey respondents stated
they distrusted U.S. firms because of their perceived involvement in foreign policy.

The dilemma U.S. firms
face is how to counter this
negativity abroad but retain
their patriotic reputation
within the United States.
Most of these quintessen-
tially American firms oper-
ate through local partners
and purchase from local
suppliers in their global
operations. So should these
U.S. companies distance
themselves from their U.S.
identity? Should they high-
light that boycotts harm
local economies perhaps
even more than they do the
U.S. economy?

Protesters in Manila boycott McDonald’s and other U.S.-
based firms to protest the U.S.-led war on Iraq.

why will instructors

enjoy using this book?

Tradition. Marketing draws from a history of outstanding marketing texts. As such,
users of other books will feel confident and comfortable with the material in this new text. We
honor all the traditional marketing concepts, but make them current, relevant and fun for your
students to learn.

Assessment. Business schools and accrediting organizations are demanding that
students be accountable for specific material that is essential for any marketing practitioner.
Of course, Marketing provides students with the knowledge of the language of marketing.
In addition, students will come away with a set of tools that is essential to be successful in
marketing careers. But the material goes beyond the printed page. The Online Learning Center
contains an Interactive Student Tool Kit. The Tool Kit is a set of interactive exercises that are
working models of the concepts presented in the text. Sophisticated, fun, and instructive, this
Interactive Tool Kit contains up to 3 gradable assignments on each of the following concepts:

Outstanding Ancillary Materials. In addition to the Tool Kit, Marketing
provides instructors with a broad spectrum of high-quality supplements:

SWOT Analysis (Chapter 2)
Compensatory versus Non-compensatory
Consumer Decision Making (Chapter 5)
• Vendor Evaluation Analysis (Chapter 6)

Market Positioning Map (Chapter 8)
Service Quality (Chapter 12)
Break-even Analysis (Chapter 13)
Developing an Advertisement (Chapter 18)

Two sets of state-of-the-art PowerPoint presentations for each chapter. One set contains pictures,
screen grabs, key terms, interactive exhibits, and embedded videos. The other is a frills-free
version, ideal for customizing.

A user-friendly, yet comprehensive Instructors’ Manual. In addition to the lecture notes and end
of chapter solutions, you will also find additional assignments, examples, and in-class activities
that you can use to enhance your classroom lectures. This IM is available on the Instructor’s side
of the Online Learning Center and in hard copy.

A video program on DVD consisting of more than 15 segments in a variety of lengths to provide
flexibility for your classroom. Some of the firms featured in these videos are Newman’s Own
Organics, Taco Bell, and Netflix. The bottled water industry is covered in one long segment that
integrates several of the key concepts discussed in this book.

One of the most important aspects of the teaching package is the Test bank. The model for this
test bank is unique, and was designed by a focus group of instructors. The test bank provides
approximately 130 questions per chapter. Each question is keyed to chapter learning objectives
and linked to the current AACSB standards. In this test bank you will find a balanced mixture
of true/false, multiple-choice, short answer, and essay questions that are labeled as definition,
conception, or application driven.

A Compelling Read. Marketing was written with the student in mind. The
examples are current and appealing, and feature a wide range of products and services
that will be recognizable to a diverse group of readers.

Unique End-of-Chapter Applications and Exercises

Marketing Applications. Each chapter concludes with eight to eleven Marketing
Applications. These questions ask students to apply what they have learned to
marketing scenarios that are relevant to their lives.

Ethical Dilemma. At least one of the Marketing Applications in each chapter poses an
ethical dilemma based on material covered in the chapter. For instance, in Chapter 7
on global marketing, we pose the issue of offshore tax preparation work being done at
a local accounting firm that communicates a personal commitment to each customer.
Students can apply the ethical decision-making framework introduced in Chapter 3 to
these marketing situations.

Net Savvy. Each chapter contains two exercises that force
students to the Internet to apply material covered in the text.
For example, in Chapter 18 on advertising we direct students
to the Childrens’s Advertising Review Unit, one of the major
self-regulatory bodies for childrens’s advertising at www.caru.
org. We ask students to choose a press release and discuss
what action CARU took against the identified company or
group and the legal and ethical issues addressed in the case.

End-of-Chapter Cases. Each chapter ends with a 2-3 page case
covering a current marketing idea, concept, or company.
