Identify management objectives
Develop research objectives
Decide on the data collection techniques and procedures

Secondary Data is when one collects data that has already been looked up on by others and published in books and available online.
Secondary Data is useful but its better to gather the information first to avoid unnecessary expenses.
Primary Data is information you gathered yourself.
One of the techniques for Primary Data is Observation. When collecting information through observation trained people follow potential buyers into supermarkets and see their behaviors of buying, comparing prices and feeling the weight of products.
Primary Data can be gathered by getting consumers to answer many questions called surveys. Phone surveys through text, mail surveys and online surveys are the most common survey’s used today.
The Marketing Environment
Managing the Marketing Mix: 4 P's
Product Development and The Total Product Offer
• International competition today is so strong that Canadian businesses could lose part of the market to foreign producers if they aren’t careful
: Good quality at a fair price. When consumers calculate the value of a product, they look at the benefits and then subtract the cost to see if the benefits exceed the costs
Developing a Total Product Offer
Total Product Offer
: Also called a value package means everything that consumers evaluate when deciding whether to buy something
Product Lines and the Product Mix
is a group of physically similar products with similar competitors
is a company’s combination of product lines
is the creation of real or perceived product differences
• Marketers use a mix of pricing, advertising, and packaging to make their products seem unique and attractive
Packaging Changes the Product
• 1. To protect the goods inside, stand up under handling and storage, be tamper proof, deter theft, and yet be easy to open and use
• 2. To attract the buyer’s attention
• 3. To describe the contents
• 4. To explain the benefits of the good inside
• 5. To provide information on warranties, warnings, and other consumer matters
• 6. To indicate price, value, and uses
Branding and Brand Equity

The Purpose of Pricing
To reach a target profit
To build traffic
To create a greater market share
To build a reputation or image
To further social goals
Three Major Approaches to Pricing Strategy
: the price depends on the total expenses to provide/create the product.
: pricing is based on the consumer demand.
: pricing depends on what other competitors are doing.
What is the Break Even Analysis?
It is when total revenue equals total costs
Purpose is to determine profitability at different levels of sales
When revenue exceeds cost, that is the point that is profitable
Different types of Costs:
1. Total fixed costs: all expenses that stay the same no matter how many sales are made.
2. Variable costs: expenses that change depending on the level of production.
The formula to determine the Break-even point is :
Break-even point (BEP)
= Total fixed costs (FC)
Price of one unit (P) – Variable cost (VC) of one unit
Setting a Price for New Products
There are two strategies to determine a price for new products:
1. Skimming price strategy: product price is high while there’s a few competition
2. Penetration price strategy: product price is low to attract customers.
Setting a Retailer Price
Retailers mainly use two pricing strategies:
Everyday low pricing
: having low prices but no special sales or promotions
: having high prices but having special sale and promotions.
This is to differentiate products, because prices can be so easily matched.
Few competitors can match non-pricing competition
This also avoids price wars with competitors.
It creates more focused on the product.
For example: promotions, sales, features of the product, location, brand, and information about the product.
What are Marketing Intermediaries?
Marketing Intermediaries are firms in the middle that link producers, businesses, and the ultimate consumers.
They help transport and store goods from manufacturers to consumers.
A chain or series of marketing intermediaries are called Channels of Distribution.
Channels are broken into direct and indirect forms
Types of Marketing Intermediaries
Agents and Brokers

It’s more efficient and effective. More Convenient and cheaper
And ensures communication and money flow.
Retailers sell to ultimate consumers – the ones that bring foods and services to your neighborhood and make them available day and night
Retail Store example: Metro - sell mostly food with other non-food products
Retailing Distribution Strategy
Marketers must select the right retailers to sell their products
Different products have different retail distribution strategies
: put products into as many retail outlets as possible E.g. vending machines
: sends products to only a preferred group of retailers in an area E.g. Manufacturers of shopping goods (appliances, furniture, etc.)
: sends products to only one retail outlet in a given geographic area E.g. Auto manufacturers – they have exclusive rights to sell the product; large inventory, give exceptional service, and pay more attention to this brand
This is retailing done outside a traditional store
Delivering the goods and providing helpful service
: sale of goods and services by phone
Marketing by phone
E.g. would sell a catalogue to consumers and let them order by calling a toll-free number
Vending Machines, Kiosks, and Carts
Marketing by placing products in convenient locations
Marketing by approaching consumers at their homes or work
Promotion and the Promotion Mix
: Combination of promotional tools an organization uses
Integrated Marketing Communication (IMC)

The idea: use all promotional tools and company resources to create a positive brand image and meet the strategic marketing and promotional goals of the firm
The Five Traditional Promotional Tools
Paid, non- personal communication through various media by organizations and individuals who are in some way identified in the advertising message
: developing a product and promotional strategy that can be implemented worldwide
Advertising today is moving from globalism (one ad for everyone in the world) to regionalism (specific ads for each country or for specific groups within a country)
Types of advertisements include: newspapers, television, radio, magazines, outdoor, direct mail, and the internet
* The most effective media are often expensive, while the inexpensive media may not reach your market
The face-to-face presentation and promotion of goods and services
THE BUSINESS-TO-CONSUMER SALES PROCESS
o Approach: show the customer you are there to help, and that you are friendly and knowledgeable
o Ask Questions: figure out what the customer wants
o Presentation: based on what the customer says, you show them how the product meets their needs and answer questions to choose the best product for them
o Trial Close: an attempt to make a sale, by not being too pushy
o After-sale follow up: usually neglected- call customer to make sure the product is delivered on time and make sure they are satisfied with their purchase
Public Relations (PR)
the management function that evaluates public attitudes, changes policies and procedures in response to the public’s requests, and executes a program of action and information to earn public understanding and acceptance
