A more elaborate definition is: Marketing Communication is targeted interaction with customers and prospects using one or more media, such as direct mail, newspapers and magazines, television, radio, billboards, telemarketing, and the Internet. Marketing communications is essentially a part of the marketing mix. The marketing mix defines the 4Ps of marketing, price, place, product and promotion, and Promotion is what marketing communications is all about. Subsisting within the marketing mix is another, the promotion mix which simply refers to the blend of advertising, selling, public relations and sales promotion. A commonality shared by all elements of the promotional mix is that their function is to communicate. Before a product is positioned in the mind of a buyer, awareness must first be created through the promotion mix to such extent that the buyer develops positive attitudes about the product or service and the selling firm that may result in a sale being made. From the marketing point of view, communication or the promotion mix can achieve the following functions: • INFORMATION: especially during the product’s introductory stage, when it is newly introduced into the market, and the company is trying to establish primary demand. • PERSUASION: once primary demand has been established, commercial communication can emphasize persuasion in the struggle for brand supremacy. Selective demand for the branded product of a seller may be built through brand names, emotional appeals, repetition, package identification and similar devices. This is done usually at the growth stage in a product life cycle. • COMBINED PROMOTIONAL INFORMATION AND PERSUASION: sellers combine information and persuasion in their promotion message, attempting to expand both primary and selective demands at the same time. This, usually occurs when the product is in the maturity or declining stages of their life cycle. (Stanley, 1977; Belch and Belch, 1986) Download free eBooks at bookboon.com 9 Marketing Communications Fundamentals Of Communication In Marketing There are three necessary elements for effective communication • SOURCE: such as an organization selling products • MESSAGE: such as information, signs and symbols • RECEIVER: such as consumers and the company’s publics All these three are established in marketing communication. Market communication, that is, messages flow between the firm which is its source and four main groups of receivers: 1. Consumers 2. Various sales supporting personnel such as wholesalers, retailers and other middlemen in the marketing system 3. Other members of the distribution channels and the marketing system not directly under the control of the selling firm, such as advertising agencies, sales agents and others 4. Material and resource suppliers such as financial and governmental agencies. Feedback must be present for any meaningful analysis of market communication and its effectiveness. The conclusive market feedback is the knowledge of completed sales as a result of messages. Feedback may also be made through market survey. Feedback information obtained through sales and marketing research is utilized by management to assist in the appraisal of the transmitted messages’ results to guide product and sales strategy. It is, as well, to revise communication contents, channels of transmission and forms of communication. The modern company manages a complex marketing communications system, the firm uses its communication mix of advertising, sales promotion, publicity and personal selling to disseminate marketing and corporate information, to its distribution channel members, consumers and other various publics. The nature of information communicated to these various groups, goes a long way in making the positive impact that will build corporate goodwill for the company, its products and employees. Researchers have discovered that information has a peculiar nature, with various essential elements to make a targeted impact on its recipients.
