Introduction

Marketing mix & 4P's The 4 P's are product, price, place and promotion, which are: Product, price, place, promotion Product- These are some of the things that make a product. Market or product driven: Market driven firms will use a market research to find out what people want and then make the product. These products are usually useful. Product driven products are new products that re made or invented and tried to be sold. This often means they make something no one likes. Detail of the product: The design must be fit for its purpose. The product name must be attractive. Firms usually build up a brand name, this usually makes their product different from others in the same market and can help to build up customer loyalty.

Price- I am going to charge my customers a standard price no matter the time of year however I can only run my business during the summer season. The pricing strategy I am going to use is Competitors pricing because I will have to charge my customers the same price they are paying for the same service. Promotion- I am going to inform the local leisure centre because my business is a health and sport related business and people go to the leisure centre to get more information on sport in the local area. In the local leisure centre I am going to print out leaflets that people can read. Place- I am going to rent two tennis courts to accommodate my customers in the local tennis courts because they are the only tennis courts available other than school tennis courts. The distribution channel I will be using is going to be Manufacturer-Customer because my service is direct to the customer as I am teaching the customer to do something. ...read more.
