Marketing calls for more than developing a good product, packaging the product, pricing it attractively and making it readily to the consumers. The company must design and disseminate information about the product existence, features and terms and how this will disseminating information to the target customers. It must communicate effectively with other parties in the task environment for example dealers or suppliers and also with major external publics for example the stock holders or the financial comities and with internal public e.g. management, directors, sales force and the employees.
To communicate well, organizations involve themselves in advertising, sales promotion, personal selling and publics. For many organizations, the question is not whether to communicate, using any of the above tools, but how much to spend and in which of the tools above.
