MARKETING MIX

Marketing mix is the combination of elements that you will use to market your product. There are four elements: Product, Place, Price and Promotion. They are called the four Ps of the marketing mix.

PRODUCT
A good product makes its marketing by itself because it gives benefits to the customer. We can expect that you have right now a clear idea about the benefits your product can offer. Suppose now that the competitors products offer the same benefits, same quality, and same price. You have then to differentiate your product with design, features, packaging, services, warranties, return and so on. In general, differentiation is mainly related to: The design: it can be a decisive advantage but it changes with fads. For example, a fun board must offer a good and fashionable design adapted to young people. The packaging: It must provides a better appearance and a convenient use. In food business, products often differ only by packaging. The safety: It does not concern fun board but it matters very much for products used by kids. The "green": A friendly product to environment gets an advantage among some segments. In business to business and for expensive items, the best mean of differentiation are warranties, return policy, maintenance service, time payments and financial and insurance services linked to the product.

PRICE
Pricing is selecting the best price at which to sell a product. prices must support variety of costs Prices must be competitive Low and high price strategies can be effective in different situations

PLACE
Place is the part of marketing mix concerned with getting products from producers to consumers.

PROMOTION
