Marketing and Ethics. In this report, we will see the main issues between marketing and ethics, two fields that do not sound to work together, but have to though. We will see the consequences that non-ethical decisons can have on peoples life or on t
And here is an important point that has to be developed. (cf list of references, french website) Indeed, money is not bad or good on a moral aspect. Money itself is a real material that was created by God so that it is in fact a good thing. It is a means of exchange whose value is conventionnally set in a society. However, it is when money refers to a person that it can become morally good or bad. It actually depends on the way you get it (honestly? by stealing? cheating?) and the way you are linked to money.

Customers are now expecting transparency and the fault-finding customer demands continuous improvement and quality. This leads the company to develop a value based marketing strategy to retain customers and focus in enhancing shareholder value.

When separating synergies, having a goal that is quantified by operating profits will allow us to assess any existing linear correlations between the channels. This will allow us to determine which channels to focus on in regards to improving performance. Also, increasing operating profits can be achieved through heavy internal manipulations of decreasing costs and increasing prices, which can be achieved without increasing promotion and advertising costs. Increasing profitability is of the utmost importance as a market follower because doing so will allow us to further develop products to fit our target segment, refine infrastructure for I-media, and set up an efficient inventory management system.

Where is quantifiable measure derived from? Since we have already achieved a compounded annual growth rate of 16% in international company sales in a similar time frame of 6 years from 1986 to 1992, a growth rate of 10% in China in the similar time frame of 5 years is attainable. (Exhibit 1 depicts the growth in MKC net revenues between 1986 to 1992.) The international growth rate averages 2.6% every year. In five years, we would normally expect a 13% growth rate. However, to account for our new market entry and introduction product life cycle phase, we are expecting a modest initial growth of 10% for the first 5 years.

As a Marketing Manager in your industry discuss and evaluate how you would strategically utilise relationship marketing and customer relationship marketing as a marketing management tool.
Increasingly, customer retention has needed greater importance in company strategies due to the environmental changes occurring in many markets. East (1997) suggests that retaining customers can be less expensive than procuring new ones due to start up costs associated with new purchases (e.g. introductory offers on frequent flyer programmes). Online competition has since intensified this situation. Hence, the importance of creating relationships at a time when this retention faces threats from greater customer choice is apparent.

Ryanair started in 1985, with only one 15-seater plane from the south east of Ireland to London Gatwick. Over the years passenger numbers increased dramatically, but despite this Ryanair was making a loss. So they adapted their marketing strategy and decided to re-launch the company as a low fares or "no frills" airline. Michael O'Leary drew inspiration from the Southwest airlines model in the US. Southwest regarded itself as a "bus" service, a replacement for ground transport, as it was cheap and offered no frills. (Datar, R, 2003) O'Leary set about cutting costs across the whole firm, which created the model that is so well known today.
