Marketing is the process of determining customer wants and then developing a product to satisfy their needs. It is externally focused.

Selling entails producing a product and then trying to persuade customers to purchase it -- in effect, trying to alter consumer demand. It is internally focused.

Take-Aways (Lecture 1)

2. What is marketing?
Starts with customers and their needs
Managing profitable customer relationships.

1. Motivation
- Freud Theory: hidden and subconscious
- Maslow's hierarchy of needs
2. Perception
- is the process by which people select, organize, and interpret information
Attitudes are difficult to change
Companies usually try to fit their products to existing attitudes rather than trying to change attitudes

Adoption of new product
New product: new goods/ service/ idea
Adoption process:
individual first hear about an innovation,
-->become a regular user of the product (durable/ non-durable good).
Influence of product characteristics on rate of adoption
Relative advantage
the degree to which the innovation appears superior to existing products
the degree to which the innovation fits the values and experiences of potential consumers
the degree to which the innovations is difficult to understand or use
the degree to which the innovation may be tried on a limited basis
the degree to which the results of using the innovation can be observed or described by other
Example: Facebook
Not only adoption time matters; adopters’ characteristics are important too!
Many factors influence adoption
- Facebook scores high in all 5 product characteristics that affect adoption rate
- Competition, innovation, network effects
- The marketing mix (4 Ps)
For Facebook, “product” and “place” are factors; “promotion” and “price” don’t play a prominent role
