Conclusion

advertising agencies use them to distinguish a product from its competitors. Packaging Packaging plays its part in the marketing mix through its role in containing, protecting and promoting the product. The role has become even more important in recent years. Successful packaging needs to be distinctive and recognisable, and fit in well with the brand images appropriate to its target market also it needs to give out the correct message about the product. Source: BTEC national book After understanding the marketing mix and identifying how it works it is easily noticed that marketing mix is like a life cycle, which needs each other to make the product successful. However promotional is the only stage that needs to be looked at in detail and spent time on because if the target market isn't aware of the product then the sales shouldn't be expected to be high. Summary For this task I had to describe the role of management and explain the promotional aspect of the marketing mix, which helps the business in achieving the businesses aims and objectives. I think after doing this task I have learnt that for a business to promote their product and make it successful it has to focus on marketing mix because according to the research I have done I have realised that marketing mix is the key element which helps in identifying all the aspects of the product and make it successful. I recommend that Tesco should focus on marketing mix before launching any products because if they focus on marketing mix then they could expect their product to be successful in the market, which would help in their sales. ...read more.
