Welcome to a Branded World

“Brand You”

  • You are a product and have “market value” as a person

  • You “position” yourself for a job

  • Don’t “sell yourself short”

  • You package & promote yourself


The Who & Where of Marketing

  • Marketers:

    • Are real people who make choices that affect themselves, their companies, & millions of consumers (see “Real People, Real Choices”)

    • Work cross-functionally within the firm

    • Enjoy exciting, diverse careers


The Value of Marketing

  • Definition of marketing (AMA, 2004)

    • An organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders


Marketing Is about Meeting Needs

  • Meeting the needs of diverse stakeholders

    • Buyers, sellers, investors, community residents, citizens

  • Marketing concept

    • Identifying consumer needs and providing products that satisfy those needs

  • The modern marketplace

    • a mall, a mail-order catalog, a TV shopping network, an eBay auction, or an e-commerce Web site


Marketing Is about Creating Utility

  • Utility: the sum of the benefits we receive from using a product/service

    • Form utility

    • Place utility

    • Time utility

    • Possession utility


Marketing Is about Exchange Relationships

  • An exchange occurs when something is obtained for something else in return, like cash for goods or services

    • Buyer receives product that satisfies need

    • Seller receives something of equivalent value


The Evolution of Marketing

  • The Production Era

  • The Selling Era

  • The Consumer Era

  • The New Era


The Production Era

  • Focus on the most efficient ways to make and distribute products, like Henry Ford’s Model T & Ivory soap

  • Marketing plays an insignificant role


The Selling Era

  • Focus on one-time sales of goods rather than repeat business

  • Marketing viewed as a sales function


The Consumer Era

  • Focus on satisfying customers’ needs and wants

  • Marketing becomes more important in the firm

  • Total Quality Management (TQM) widely followed in marketing community


The New Era: Make Money and Act Ethically

  • Focus on building long-term bonds with customers.

  • Marketing uses customer relationship management (CRM) to track consumers’ preferences and tailor the value proposition to each individual


The New Era: Focusing on Social Benefits

  • Social marketing concept: satisfy customers’ needs and also benefit society

  • Sustainability: meeting present needs and ensuring that future generations can meet their needs


The New Era: Focusing on Accountability

* Measuring how much value is created by marketing activities

  • ROI (Return on Investment) is the direct financial impact of a firm’s expenditure of resources such as time or money


What Can Be Marketed?

From serious goods and services to fun things

  • Goods and services mirror changes in popular culture

  • Marketing messages may communicate myths of a culture

    Product: any good, service, or idea

  • Consumer goods/services

  • Business-to-business goods/services

  • Not-for-profit marketing

  • Idea, place, and people marketing


The Marketing of Value

  • Value: the benefits a customer receives from buying a good or service

  • Marketing communicates the value proposition: a marketplace offering that fairly and accurately sums up the value that the customer will realize if he/she purchases product/service


Value from the Customer’s Perspective

  • The ratio of costs to benefits

  • Value proposition includes the whole bundle of benefits the firm promises to deliver, not just the benefits of the product itself


Value from the Seller’s Perspective

  • Value for the seller takes many forms

    • Making a profitable exchange

    • Earning prestige among rivals

    • Taking pride in doing what a company does well

    • Nonprofits: motivating, educating, or delighting the public


Calculating the Value of a Customer

  • Single transactions don’t provide companies with the value they desire

  • Lifetime value of a customer: How much profit a company expects from a customer’s purchases now and in the future


Providing Value to Stakeholders

  • Competitive advantage: The ability of a firm to outperform the competition by providing customers with a benefit the competition cannot provide


Adding Value throughthe Value Chain

  • Value chain: a series of activities involved in designing, producing, marketing, delivering, and supporting any product

    • Inbound logistics

    • Operations

    • Outbound logistics

    • Marketing final product

    • Service


Consumer-Generated Value:From Audience to Community

  • Everyday people generating value instead of just buying it

    • People functioning in marketing roles: creating ads, providing input into new products, or serving as retailers


Value from Society’s Perspective

  • How marketing transactions add or subtract value from society

  • Stressing ethics/social responsibility is often good business in the long run

  • Products that encourage antisocial behavior

    *Consumers

  • Terrorism

  • Addictive consumption

  • Exploited people

  • Illegal activities

  • Shrinkage

  • Anticonsumption


Marketing as a Process
