Phases of Marketing

Compare three phase of marketing

November 19, 2014


Compare and contrast the three (3) phases of marketing.

PrestigiouzzZ - Nigeria (25565)


Each phase in marketing should be done in the order given. They are all important to get to selling the products.

To effectively pursue the goal of selling your product, you need to first define your circumstances, such as what your core business is and who your customers are. Then you must make preparations for getting your customers to buy your product. Preparations include getting an appealing product, setting a good price and providing a place for them to buy.

Finally, you go into action, trying to reach your customers, letting them know about your product and telling how good it is. Once you can get them in the showroom, you can convince them to buy.

Marketing mix as applied to school

March 16, 2011


QUESTION: How can marketing mix be applied to school.

Ben Okogie - Nigeria (21331)


If a school wants more students, they can use the marketing mix to attract the students.

Product = what courses are offered that appeal to students
Price = fees that are reasonable
Place = good location of school
Promotion = advertising to let students or parents know of school

Which p should be first, second, third, forth and why?

shivam - India (20213)


See the "Three Phases of Marketing" at:

It shows a logical order of product, price, place and promotion. A different order would not make much sense or even be possible.

Determining Viability of Your Product or Service

Worried that someone will steal my idea

March 24, 2009


I have this great idea for a product but don't want to let others know about it, because they might steal my idea.

What should I do?

- USA (17507)


You need to let others know about your product, otherwise, who can you sell it?

A way to avoid worrying about stealing your idea is to build a BETA version or prototype of your product. You can then do market research to see how much people are interested. Because you have already gone this far, it is difficult for someone to catch up to you. Also, you can start a patent process, even if you never complete it, as a way to protect your idea.

Best wishes in your writing.
