Service Marketing Mix


The difference between marketing goods and marketing services becomes more noticeable at the tactical level. This occurs primarily because as marketing moves towards tactical level. This occurs primarily because as marketing moves towards tactical issues then it also moves closer to, and, must be more tailored to the distinguishing features of specific products and markets. In the context of the marketing mix, this suggests that in the case of services, the composition of that mix and the management of its elements can be quite distinctive. Thus, we find that the applicability of the traditional 4 P's in the case of service marketing has been extensively questioned. The service marketing mix should include a fifth "P' namely "people' to acknowledge the important role played by individuals in the provision of services. This additional element incorporates not just personnel involved in direct communication with customers; it also includes operational personnel and the customer group. Therefore, the five P's of service marketing mix are "Product, Price, Promotion, Place & People'.

17

Product V/s. Service Marketing


In manufacturing, the marketing function plays an important role in the identification of customers need. Here customer needs are identified and product development before the production. Production precedes demand stimulation, which precedes consumption. The postproduction refer include creating brand awareness, including brand trial, demonstrating brand benefits and building brand preference. Customers assess the brands promised benefits during consumption, strengthening or weakening brand preference accordingly.

18

19

Nature & Role of Service Marketing


Although both services marketing and goods marketing start with the critical need identification and product design functions, goods generally are produced before it is sold and services generally are sold before it is produced. Moreover, service marketing has more limited influence on customers before the purchase than goods marketing. Normally, the customers must experience the intangible service to really know it. Intangibility makes more difficult for customers to imagine and desire than goods. Customer's perception of risk tends to be high for services because services cannot be touched, smelled, tasted or tried before purchase.

Views on Yesterday & Today's Marketing


Traditional Views Definitions "Marketing comprises both buying and selling activities." Pyle. "It is an economic process by means of which goods and services are exchanged and their values determined in terms of money price." Edward David.

We can conclude that: (1) The traditional concept lays emphasis on the production or sale and purchase of goods and services. (2) Almost all the authorities belonging to the group have neglected a key ingredient like after sales service. (3) The traditional thoughts are "ProductOriented" (4) None of the traditional experts have given any importance to the social responsibility or accounting. (5) They have confined the functional areas of marketing only to the limit of transfer of goods and services or exchange of ownership.
21

22

Modern Views Definitions "Marketing is the creation and delivery of a standard of living." Malcom Mcnair & Paul "Marketing is the process of discovering and translating consumer needs and wants into product and services specification, creating demand for the product and services and then in turn expanding their demand." Hansen

We conclude that: (1) Marketing is a means to make profitable sale. (2) It is medium to satisfy consumer needs. (3) It is a chain of processes backed by creative thinking. (4) Everything the business does is marketing. (5) Marketing is the creation and delivery of standard of living. (6) Marketing is a response to consumer demand. (7) Marketing is a set of human activities.
