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.

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.
