The field of marketing communications is ever-changing. Brand managers continually
attempt to gain advantage over competitors and endeavor to achieve larger
market shares and profits for the brands they manage. Marketing communications,
or marcom, is just one element of the marketing mix, but advertising, promotions,
marketing-oriented public relations, and other marcom tools perform
increasingly important roles in firms’ quests to achieve financial and nonfinancial
As the head of accounting, Dan took pride in the efficiency of his
department. Just recently, he and his team had significantly reduced the
time between billing and receiving. The resulting improvement in cash
flow resulted in a team award from management. So he was a bit
annoyed when Janet, his old friend in marketing, told him about her
latest market research. "Customers find their statements confusing," she
said. "They seem to be paying the bills," Dan countered, "and we
manage to keep track of the money, what more do we have to do?" She
"Market orientation," may actually encompass several different approaches to the strategic alignment of the organization with the external environment. This article develops a market orientation typology matrix as a pedagogical and heuristic tool to summarize these distinct approaches. Specifically, firms can decide to focus primarily on either competitors or customers as the situation dictates, or perhaps attempt the difficult task of simultaneously monitoring both with equal emphasis.
In this chapter, students will be able to understand: elements ofbusiness strategy, critical elements in a strategic plan, strategy process model 2, wants-gets grid, value chain analysis, market orientation elements,...
This chapter presents the following content: Components of market orientation, linking customer needs to company capabilities, stages of internal and external partnering, encouraging integration in marketing operations,...
Today’s central problem facing business is not a shortage of goods
but a shortage of customers. Most of the world’s industries can pro-
duce far more goods than the world’s consumers can buy. Overca-
pacity results from individual competitors projecting a greater market
share growth than is possible. If each company projects a 10 percent
growth in its sales and the total market is growing by only 3 percent,
the result is excess capacity.
The Marketing Leadership Audit has educational and team building components. One objective of this session is to assess your place or company’s market orientation. You will see that there are several underlying factors to market orientation and that the extent to which a manager of a company/place is market-oriented –and a leader—is somewhat contingent upon perception.
Policy makers (executives and government leaders), educators, and students alike have a basic obligation
to take advantage of the opportunities to learn and transmit the knowledge of the world. International
experiences are not luxuries.Without the comprehension of global issues, education is not complete.
International marketing is not a subset or special case of domestic marketing. While a person should
benefit from an observation of marketing in another culture, the greater benefit is derived from one’s better
understanding of oneself in the process.

.Praise for Head First OOA&D
“Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design is a refreshing look at the subject of OOA&D. What sets this book apart is its focus on learning. There are too many books on the market that spend a lot of time telling you why, but do not actually enable the practitioner to start work on a project. Those books are very interesting, but not very practical. I strongly believe that the future of software development practice will focus on the practitioner.

THE ROLE OF IMPORT SUBSITITUTION AND EXPORT ORIENTATION STRATEGIES ON THAILAND'ECONOMIC GROWTH This result calls the incentive effects of Tiebout choice into question, as it indicates
that administrators of effective schools are no more likely to be rewarded with high demand
for local housing in high-choice than in low-choice markets. To explore this further, I
estimate models for the effect of Tiebout choice on mean scores across metropolitan areas.
Consistent with the earlier results, I find no evidence that high-choice markets produce
higher average SAT scores.

Research purposes: On the one hand, the research investigates the consumer behavior model, and the
external and internal factors of the consumer’s “black box” that have impacts on the consumer’s behavioral intentions towards mobile services. On the other hand, based on theresults of the investigation of the Vietnamese consumer behaviors, the research provides an analysis of the orientation of the marketing mix employed by the Vietnamese mobile enterprises over the past time and proposes a new orientation to these enterprises for thecoming time.
General Theme: Nowadays the market, and neo-liberalism in general,
seems to be in disarray. With support waning for an unfettered market, various
critics are seeking alternatives. In this book, the idea is that a new way of
thinking about the economy may be productive, particularly one that does not
rely on an unregulated market to secure economic order. In this context, the
notion of a ―post-market society‖ is introduced to describe this shift in
The reason behind this marketing
interest is twofold. First, marketers recognize
the increasing importance of the Internet and
of consumers that are active in online
communities. Almquist and Roberts (2000, p.
18) found that the major factor influencing
positive brand equity for one brand over
another is consumer advocacy. Online
communities are places in which consumers
often partake in discussions whose goals
include attempts to inform and influence
fellow consumers about products and brands
