Recently the CEO of a major corporation told me he still likes to refer to the first edition of Marketing Management, published in 1967, a book he used in graduate school. When he asked me to sign his copy, I obliged but told him I would be signing an antique. So much has changed since I first wrote it. Granted it introduced the concept that companies must be customer-and-market driven, but it left out today's marketplace dynamics. There was no mention of segmentation, targeting, and positioning. The Internet did not exist, nor did, for example, debit cards, smart cards, cellular phones, personal digital assistants, hypercompetition, cyberconsumers, customer equity, customer value analysis, customer relationship management, price transparency, value networks, hybrid channels, supply chain management, viral marketing, integrated marketing communication, and mobile marketing.
Even if some people question the existence of a new economy, they need to acknowledge the new elements in today's marketplace. The Internet has multiplied the number of ways consumers buy and companies sell and how companies carry on their businesses. The Internet has increased customer price sensitivity. Cellular phones have enabled people to exchange messages and buy and sell on the go. Companies face competitors from a growing number of countries, who offer lower prices and equal quality for their products and services. We are witnessing a precipitous decline in the effectiveness of mass advertising as a result of the explosion of communication channels. Companies are trying to reduce their sales forces (the most expensive way to sell) by encouraging customers to use lower-cost channels (telephone and online ordering). Store-based retailers, such as small bookstores, music stores, and travel agents, are in a daily struggle against online competitors. All industries are experiencing hypercompetition, dog-eat-dog pricing. Company margins have thinned considerably, and power is clearly shifting to customers, who are increasingly telling companies what product features they want, what communications they will tolerate, what incentives they expect, and what prices they will pay.
In response, companies are shifting gears from managing product portfolios to managing customer portfolios. The focus today is on Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Companies emphasize keeping and growing customers instead of finding new ones. They are compiling databases on individual customers so they can understand them better and construct individualized offerings and messages. They are doing less product and service standardization and more nicking and customization. They are replacing monologues with customer dialogues. They are improving their methods of measuring customer profitability and customer lifetime value. They are intent on measuring the return on their marketing investment and its impact on shareholder value.
Companies have stopped thinking of the Internet as an information channel or a sales channel. The Internet requires a complete rethinking of a company's marketing strategy and the models on which it builds its business. Every company occupies a position in a long value chain connecting customers, employees, suppliers, distributors, and dealers. Today Intranets improve internal communication and Extranets facilitate communicating with partners.
As markets change, so does marketing. Marketing is no longer a company department charged with a limited number of tasks: managing advertising, sending out direct mail, finding sales leads, providing customer service. Marketing must be a company-wide undertaking. It must drive the company's vision, mission, and strategic planning. Marketing is about deciding who the company wants as its customers; which needs to satisfy; what products and services to offer; what prices to set; what communications to send deceive; what channels of distribution to use; and what partnerships to develop.
Marketing deals with the whole process of entering markets, establishing profitable ions, and building loyal customer relationships. This can happen only if all departs work together: engineering designs the right products, finance furnishes the red funds, purchasing buys quality materials, production makes quality products on 4~e, and accounting measures the profitability of different customers, products, and areas.
Marketing is of interest to everyone, whether they are marketing goods, services, properties, persons, places, events, information, ideas, or organizations. So the eleventh edition is dedicated to helping companies, groups, and individuals adapt their marketing strategies and management to the new technological and global realities.
This edition emphasizes:
At the same time, it builds on the fundamental strengths of past editions:
