1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Marketing is the management process responsible for identifying, anticipating and satisfying customer requirements profitability. It’s the strategic business function that creates value by stimulating, facilitating and fulfilling customer demand. It does this by building brands, nurturing innovation, developing relationships, creating good customer service and communicating benefits. By operating customer-centrically, marketing brings positive returns on investment, satisfies shareholders and stakeholders from business and the community, and contributes to positive behavioral change and a sustainable business future (CIM, 2007). Marketing helps organizations to respond to the needs and wants of customers and compete effectively.

        According to Kotler, Armstrong, & Cunningham (2005), an effective marketing strategy combines the 4 Ps (Product, Price, Place and Promotion) of the marketing mix. It is designed to meet the company’s marketing objectives by providing its customers with value. The 4 Ps of the marketing mix are related, and combine to establish the product’s position within its target markets. Marketing is the activities of a company associated with buying and selling a product or service. It includes advertising, selling and delivering products to people. People who work in marketing departments of companies try to get the attention of target audiences by using slogans, packaging design, celebrity endorsements and general media exposure.

        However, marketing is what a company does to acquire customers and maintain a relationship with them. Even the small tasks like writing thank-you letters, playing golf with a prospective client, returning calls promptly and meeting with a past client for coffee can be thought of as marketing.

The ultimate goal of marketing is to match a company's products and services to the people who need and want them, thereby ensure profitability. A product is anything that can be offered to a market for attention, acquisition, use or consumption that might satisfy a want or need (Kotler).The goods and service combination the firm offers to the target market, including variety of product mix, features, designs, packaging, sizes, services, warrantees and return policies.

Price is the amount of money a consumer is willing to pay to obtain the product. This includes wholesale/retail/promotional prices, discounts, trade in allowances, quantity discounts, credit terms, sales and payment periods and credit terms. Pricing decision making also involves adjusting prices concerning the competitive environment, economic situations and involve buyer perceptions. Other factors of marketing mix include Place/Distribution which refers to the company’s activities that make the product available, using distribution and trade channels, coverage, assortments, locations, inventory and transport. Typical supply chain consists of four links in the chain: Producer/Factory/Manufacturer, Distributor, Wholesaler, Retailer supplying the consumer and user (Principles of Marketing, Kotler and Armstrong, 2012).
