Displays of marketing practice surround us. In the course of an ordinary day we encounter hundreds, even thousands of products brought to us by professional marketers and we are the targets of countless marketing communications campaigns. This course will introduce you to the concepts and techniques that practicing marketers use to develop these products and these campaigns. The marketers are working to bring about exchanges that will simultaneously satisfy our needs and the needs of their organizations. We will examine the evolution of marketing thought and the environment in which it operates. We will look closely at what constitutes a market and how a marketer identifies, segments and targets markets. We will uncover the ways in which marketers develop the elements of the Marketing Mix:  The actual product that will most exactly meet the market’s needs,  The price to charge for it,  The distribution strategy to get the product to the consumer, and  The communications strategy to persuade customers to demand the product.

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of this course, you will be able to recognize the application of marketing principles in phenomena you see around you. You will be able to think analytically about these displays of marketing methods and understand the processes and probable objectives of the manager who made the marketing decisions that are behind them. The intention is that you will have a greater understanding of the marketing processes that you will encounter every day in your role as a potential consumer and a member of several target markets.
