1. INRTODUCTION:Business is collective activity concerning a large number of people. Profit earning cannot be the sole motive of business activity. Businessmen have certain social responsibilities that must be met. In olden days the important of the study of consumer behavior was not realized by business and industry. It was taken for granted that whatever is produced can be sold easily in the market. Now, time has changed, recognitions have changed and consideration have changed. All the businessman and the industrialists have came to know that none of the marketing efforts could be successful if the choice, taste and attitude of consumers are not properly considered. So now stress is laid upon marketing research and the study of consumer behavior. So now let us discuss in brief about each and every aspects of marketing strategy that are been used recently. 2. MARKETING:Marketing can be defined as a social and managerial process through which individuals and groups obtain what they need and want through creating, offering and exchanging products of value with others. This definition of marketing is on the following core concepts of need, want and demand products, value, cost and satisfaction, exchange,


transaction and relationship, markets, marketing and marketer. Marketing means working with markets to actualize potential exchange for the purpose of satisfying human needs. 3. MARKETING RESEARCH:Marketing research is the systematic design, collection, analysis and reporting of data and findings, relevant to a specific marketing situation facing the company. The function of marketing research is to provide information that will assist marketing managers to recognize and react to marketing opportunities and problems. 4. CONSUMER BUYING BEHAVIOUR:Consumer buying behavior is influenced by four major factors. They are cultural factor, social factor, personal factor and psychological factors. A study of these provides clues to reach and serve buyers more effectively. Consumer buying behavior consists of four different types. These types are: • Complex buying behavior • Dissonance – reducing buying behavior • Habitual buying behavior

Variety seeking buying behavior

These are based on whether the consumers have high or low involvement in purchase and whether brands exhibit many or few significant differences. Consumers go through complex buying behavior when they are highly involved in purchases and aware of significant


differences among brands. In Dissonance buying behavior, consumer are highly involved in purchase but see little differences in the brands. Variety seeking buying behavior is characterized by low involvement and significant brand differences. Many products are brought under condition of low involvement and insignificant brands differences and our of the habit consumers by the same product frequently behavior of the consumers constitutes the ground on which the marketing operate. The study of consumers behavior initiated and developed by the trade in its attempt to formulate marketing strategies had captures the market and conquered the consumers. Study of consumer behavior plays an important role in the determination of marketing policies of any enterprises. Today the number of companies that are involved in ONGC (Oil & Natural Gas Corporation) in India had increased the stiff competition is there. Only an organization that is founded on effective marketing system can stand in the market. Effective marketing system calls for research on consumer behavior. Let us see the necessity of studying the marketing strategy. In market many companies are having their Oil & Gas products and all of them are trying to increase their respective sale. For that each and every company has their own policies and marketing strategy to confess the consumers. Brand popularity too plays a vital role in the sale of the products. Less known brands are not able to influence the market to greater extent even if the standard companies manufacture them, while as the local brand if they are population have large scale. Thus to capture the huge market share study and updating of marketing is necessary also study of consumer’s behavior is necessary being they are the end users of the product.


Modern marketing calls for firms to develop a new product, price it attractively, making it accessible to target customers and more importantly communicate with their customers. Communication is a very vital aspects because those for whom a product is designed and developed have to told about it if they are to buy it. Although the old adage says “Good wine needs no bushel” –meaning that word –of mouth alone is all that will be needed to create customers if a product has a competitive edge, this is not generally so. Because, in today’s competitive scenario over and above the word of communication, it is necessary for the seller to also use persuasive communication to increase level of business and accelerate the diffusion process. If title firm neglects ‘the problem to communication, it will wake up to realize that their competitors (though late entrance) have admirable positioned to capture that market with a me-too product that is supported by persuasive communication techniques.

5. MEANING OF COMMUNICATION:Simply stated, communication is the transfer of information from the sender to receive the information being understood by the receiver. There is no doubt or exaggeration when we say that communication function is the means by which organized activity is unified. The function of communication is to provide a means by which people are linked together with an organization to achieve a common goal. Marketing communication can be defined as a phenomenon that starts with the presentation if ideas or messages of information to a target market through various medias & cues, with the intention of creating a positive impact and thus soliciting a favorable response from the market towards the company’s producing and


services. It is India’s largest commercial enterprise.
