Marketing In Order To Market Marketing Plan


Programs is another element of the new four Ps. The company needs to have two programs. The first is that the launch program. The company needs a strategy to bring this product to market, and it needs to have a program that will allow it to gain exposure, build a brand quickly, and get the distribution it needs to compete. The second program needs to follow up the first one quickly, and take the product through the growth stage of the life cycle.

More knowledge and information is essential. Having the best people, so that there are always fresh ideas and insights is critical to growing the brand. Having distinctive programs that flow seamlessly from one to the other is something else that will help enormously. The sports drink with the fancy bottle must overcome some interesting challenges in the market but it can do this with the right people, the right processes, the right performance measures and the right programs,
