TMSC International® Management & Leadership: Marketing: In Business is a Process

According to Armstrong & Kotler (2009), marketing is:

  • Creating and Capturing Customer Value

Armstrong & Kotler (2009) also identify the key elements of  a customer-driven marketing strategy. The marketplace includes:

  • Needs which create “market offering”,
  • Wants which create “market offering”, and
  • Demands.

A simple marketing process includes:

  1. Understand!
  2. Design!
  3. Construct!
  4. Build!
  5. Capture value!

If you are designing a customer-driven marketing strategy “marketing management” is important. “Marketing Management” is:

  • “The art and science of choosing target markets and building profitable relationships with them” (Armstrong & Kotler, 2009).

Remember the potential profitability of a product and its production and the projected  loyalty.
