The five marketing concepts The Five Marketing Philosophies help determine the management of marketing. Companies approach and conduct business in different ways in order to achieve their organizational goals. The five competing concepts by which companies are guided in their marketing efforts are: Production concept is based on the fact that consumers favor products that are available and affordable. Concentration on production efficiency and effective distribution networks outweigh the customer’s actual needs and wants. This is used primarily when demand exceeds supply and the focus is on finding production methods that can bring the price down to attract more customers. ...read more.


The convergence of rich and diverse cultural influences has endowed Vietnam with both a traditional and contemporary mix of food. This helps Magnum have one more opportunity to develop marketing channels compatible with customs as well as culture of the Vietnamese. Magnum can target both traditional and modern Vietnamese by introducing a balanced mix of products that satisfies both of them. The company should also remember the influences of Japanese and Chinese culture on Vietnamese; therefore, the three might share many preferences such as fruity or green tea flavours. Magnum can also segment the market based on different occasions that consumers may choose to use the products. These different occasions can be referred to the different festivals celebrated in Vietnam; for instance, the Moon cake Festival celebrated in the month of September. In order to increase consumption of Magnumproducts, Magnum Vietnam will sell ice cream moon cakes to cater to this occasion. Other festivals such as Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Valentine?s Day are some of the occasions, which will also work closely with the marketing strategy to boost consumption of Magnumproducts. Vietnamese are traditionally patriotic. Therefore, they still give the priority for domestic products. 71% of Vietnamese consumers trust Vietnamese high quality products (according to FTA). Each culture contains ?sub-cultures? ? groups of people with share values. Sub-cultures can include nationalities, religions, racial groups, or groups of people sharing the same geographical location. Sometimes a sub-culture will create a substantial and distinctive market segment of its own. Magnum should look at various cultural characteristics of Vietnamese consumers and their preferences. Certain cultural groups tend to have similar needs especially when it comes to food, confectionery, and drinks. For instance, there are traditional Vietnamese who do not want to try new, strange products but prefer only familiar flavors like Vietnamese tropical fruits, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla with light and medium-sweet taste. There are modern Vietnamese who like to try new things, especially from foreign countries, prefer exotic, unfamiliar flavors like cheesecake, green tea, and berries in form of ice cream, frozen yogurts, or sorbets. ...read more.
