L2 isa service philosophy built upon -

  • a willingness to change and try new things;

  • a willingness to constantly re-evaluate our service offerings; and finally,

  • a willingness to look outside our own world for solutions, be they technology-driven or not (this is where Web 2.0 fits in).

Web 2 0 where it will take libraries l.jpg

Web 2.0: Where it will take libraries?...

To a temporary place in time...(W. Schultz)

  • Library 1.0: Commodity

  • Library 2.0: Product

  • Library 3.0—Web 3D to Library 3D: Service

  • Library 4.0, the neo-library: Experience

    “Library 4.0 will add a new mode, knowledge spa:  meditation, relaxation, immersion in a luxury of ideas and thought…”

  • Philip Kotler: Marketing is human activity directed at satisfying needs and wants through exchange processes.

  • Christian Grönroos: Marketing is to establish, maintain and enhance long-term customer relationships at a profit, so that the objectives of the parties involved are met. This is done by mutual exchange and fulfilment of promises.

Core marketing concepts l.jpg

Core Marketing Concepts

  • Products – this includes; goods, services, experiences, people, places and ideas;

  • Value, satisfaction and quality;

  • Exchange, transactions and relationships;

  • Markets and market segments;

  • Needs, wants and demands;

The philosophy marketing and the marketing concept l.jpg

The Philosophy Marketing and the Marketing Concept

  • This customer focused philosophy is known as the 'marketing concept'. The marketing concept is a philosophy, not a system of marketing or an organizational structure.

  • It is founded on the belief that profitable sales and satisfactory returns on investment can only be achieved by identifying, anticipating and satisfying customer needs and desires.

  • Marketing is an organizational function and a set of processes

Remark l.jpg


  • The library literature shows a development fromgeneral discussion based mainlyon the functional aspects of marketing, to research in the form of case studies groundedin the management literature, more concerned with strategic issues.

  • There are no widereaching studies across sectors, no longitudinal studies, and no meta-analysis.

  • Relationship Marketing – Making the Customer Count (1994)

The six markets model l.jpg

The Six Markets Model

  • Adrian Payne (1991) identifies six markets which he claims are central to relationship marketing.

  • They are:

    internal markets, supplier markets, recruitment markets, referral markets, influence markets, and customer markets.

Relationship marketing in libraries l.jpg

Relationship marketing in libraries

  • Besant & Sharp (2000) have created a practical model for visualizing relationship marketing in libraries. This model lists six relationships and partnerships librarians should consider:

    1. Customer markets include not only new customers but also the loyal, long-term customers who are at the heart of every service encounter. A loyal and strong relationship with customers will assist with fighting budget cuts and with expanding services.

2. Internal markets are the employees and departments within the library or the organization who are both internal customers and internal suppliers. Good internal working relationships enhance external relationships.

3. Supplier and alliance markets include publishers, system vendors, and booksellers who provide raw materials and basic equipment. Collaboration and alliances resulting in new approaches and new ways of rewarding these relationships are critical.

4. Referral markets are groups that do marketing for the library such as satisfied customers, personal and social networks, and mass media. Referral markets can be fast-acting via the Internet and either supportive of or damaging to marketing efforts.

5. Recruitment markets are the new people we attract to the profession. Getting and retaining the best people to work in the profession by creating an appealing image is necessary for sustainability.

6. Influence markets include any person or group who can benefit the library such as trustees, corporate executives, government officials, and friends groups. Proactive instead of passive relationship-building is key for these markets.

Relationship marketing44 l.jpg

Relationship marketing

  • If numbers less than 10 don't impress you, you can go for Evert Gummesson’s 30Rs of relationship marketing, from Relationship one ("the classic dyad: the relationship between supplier and customer") to Relationship 30 ("the owner and financier relationship").

  • Relationship Marketing - It's About Them and Us – Together!

Evert gummesson l.jpg

Evert Gummesson

  • Its core is the identification of 30 tangible relationships that exist in business and other organizations (see Gummesson, 1994, 1995, 1996) and their consequences.

Many to many marketing l.jpg

Many-to-Many Marketing

  • It is not a single customer meeting a single supplier, it is a customer network meeting a supplier network.

  • Many-to-many marketingdescribes, analyzes and utilizesthe network properties of marketing.

    (Gummesson 2007)
