The principles of marketing For a marketing strategy to be successful it needs to be based on all for the principles of marketing.

A strategy is lacking of showing weakness on any of these then the entire mix could falter and it could have serious repercussions on the success of your product. I have decided to improve on the existing magazine 'vogue.' Although it is one of the most successful women's magazines in history, I hope to make it more relatable to the average reader.

I hope that this will give the magazine another appeal, as not only will it be a link to the fashion world, it could also be bought in order to derive affordable out-fit ideas.

I intent to make sure that I do to overlook any of these principles as failure in one could mean the failure of the entire strategy. I have contemplated all of these points when deriving my plan and hope that I have produced a coherent mix of strategies to meet my customer needs. ?? ?? ?? ??
