Marketing organizational function

Marketing is an organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders. Marketing management is the art and science of choosing target markets and getting, keeping, and growing customers through creating, delivering, and communicating superior customer value.
Marketing management has gained importance to meet increasing competition and the need for improved methods of distribution to reduce cost and to increase profits. Marketing management today is the most important function in a commercial and business enterprise.
The other factors of importance of the marketing management:
(i) Introduction of new products in the market.
(ii) Increasing the production of existing products.
(iii) Reducing cost of sales and distribution.
(iv) Export market.
(v) Development in the means of communication and modes of transportation within and outside the country.
(vi) Rise in per capita income and demand for more goods by the consumers.

Four components – time, place, possession and form – make up the utility marketing model. Marketing models educate business owners, marketing and advertising professionals about consumer spending habits. Consumers purchase products for a variety of reasons. The utility marketing model takes into consideration how consumers feel about a product, the convenience of purchasing the product and obtaining the product when they want it.

The Time Utility Component
Ensuring a product is available when the customer wants it adheres to time utility. Consumer demand for products varies depending on the weather, holiday season or everyday wants and needs.

The Place Utility Component
Place utility is the value consumers put on where they purchase products. Stores make it easier for the consumers to purchase items, as opposed to driving to a factory or warehouse where the products are manufactured or stored. Consumers find what they need in a place conveniently located near home or work.

The Possession Utility Component
Possession utility is the value consumers put on purchasing a product and having the freedom to use the product as it was intended or finding a new use for the product. For example, many people use flower pots for planting, but these pots have other uses such as storage for small objects found around the house or as a centerpiece for the dining room table.

The Form Utility Component
Form utility is the value a consumer sees in a finished product. Consumers purchase items such as furniture, electronics or vehicles in part because the consumer is incapable of finding and putting all the parts together to create the product. The customer sees value in the finished product, or the form created by each product part.
