Guide and Best Practices

The marketing mix refers to the set of actions a business takes to promote its product or service in the market. Four Ps of marketing represents a typical marketing mix or the mixture of factors a company can ideally leverage to make consumers purchase the good or service. The four Ps include product (the good or service), price (what the customer pays to purchase the product), place (the location where the product is marketed), and promotion (advertising efforts taken to promote the product). This model can be used to evaluate your existing marketing strategy.

How to Use the 4 Ps of Marketing?

  • Once you have identified the product or service you want to bring to the market and promote, run it through each element of the 4 Ps carefully.
  • Gather a team of relevant people to collaborate on identifying and studying the elements of your marketing mix. The session facilitator can record all ideas gathered on a Creately marketing mix template that can later be shared with the rest of the team.
  • Consider the product first. Does it meet the needs of your customers? What features does it have and how will they benefit the user? How will they use it, for what and when? What does it look like? What’s its size, color, weight? How does it differ from that of the competitor?
  • Next move on to the price, which is the amount of money the user is expected to pay for it. Here you need to identify what the value of the product is to the buyer. Also consider whether there are price points already established in the market for this product, whether you should consider offering any discounts or how increasing or reducing the price of the product will affect the customer.
  • Consider the place where the product will be sold or the distribution method you need to rely on. Here you need to identify where your customers are looking to buy the product (online, in a store, supermarket, etc.). Look for what tactics your competitors use and adapt them to suit your strategy.
  • Next, discuss how you will promote your product to your market and using what channels? Can you rely on online marketing or conventional media platforms like TV, radio or magazines? Is there an ideal time to reach your target audience? How should you form your message?
  • Review your marketing mix regularly. With the changes that occur in the external and internal environment, you may need to adjust your marketing mix from time to time to stay effective.
