Join Drew Boyd for an in-depth discussion in this video Integrating all four Ps, part of Marketing Foundations.
…The four Ps of marketing is an old and classic idea, but still very relevant.…The mistake you can make is to not have all of them work together.…You need to create marketing programs that are in sync with each other and…support the overall positioning described in your strategy.…It may seem obvious, but it can be more challenging than you think.…Look at this example and see if you can spot what's wrong.…Imagine your strategic positioning is to be the elite watch maker for…the medium priced luxury watch market.…
Your goal is to appeal to consumers who want to make a statement that…they've achieved.…Your product is a gold watch with Swiss movements and fine, sophisticated design.…Your price point is $4,000.…You promote the watch in premium magazines like Smithsonian,…and then you sell the watch in thousands of discount department and drug stores.…Do you see what's wrong here?…Of course, it's the channel design that is completely inconsistent with…the positioning.…
Selling such an expensive watch right next to a $30 watch sends the wrong signal.…
