The price has to be right, the product has to be right, the product must be distributed to the right places and its has to be promoted in the right way. The factors in the marketing mix have to work together. Businesses may have to compromise on some elements - the budget for a product might not allow top dollar spending on all elements of the mix.

Marketing folk usually see the product as the most important ingredient of the marketing mix. A lousy product isn't likely to meet the needs of customers, even if the price, distribution and promotion are great. Products give tangible benefits that can be measured. Products also give intangible benefits that can't be measure like reputation or corporate image. The features of a product are important but so are things like reliability, customer service, money back guarantees and how easy it is to get hold of spare parts. Price Price is the part of the mix. Price determines the revenue that businesses get. Price is balance between being competitive and being profitable. Too high and people won't buy. Too low and you won't make enough profit.
