The Four P’s

how to package it, what brand name to use, and what
image to project.
 Place – how and where a product should be distributed to
attract the target market.
 Price – how much is the target market willing or able to
pay for the product.
 Promotion – how the potential customers of the target
market will be told about the product (commercials, etc.),
what message will be presented, where and when it will be
delivered.

any idea through the use of an oral presentation.
Examples: Sales presentations, sales meetings, sales
training and incentive programs for intermediary

selling can be used to build awareness. For example,
coke might offer samples at popular events for their
new flavour.

increase consumer demand, stimulate market
demand or improve product availability.

samples, rebates, tie-ins, self-liquidating premiums,
trade shows, trade-ins, and exhibitions.

interaction to lead to
more interest and
subsequently higher
sales for their product.

service, or business unit by planting significant news
about it or a favorable presentation of it in the media.
Examples: Newspaper and magazine articles/reports,

 PR is used to build a favourable brand image.
 Direct Marketing
 a form of advertising that allows businesses and
nonprofits to communicate straight to the customer,
with advertising techniques such as mobile
messaging, email, interactive consumer websites,
online display ads, fliers, catalog distribution,
promotional letters, and outdoor advertising.

attention and implant an enticing picture of the brand
advertised.
