Many marketing managers are already aware of the four Ps and how pleasing customers has become a major priority in marketing today. With increases in technology, however, customer approval is more important than ever before, and all aspects of business are rapidly advancing to conform to expectations of today’s varied consumers.
The internet has offered consumers the ability to not only rate a large number of products, but also easily provide their own reviews, opinions, and input into the most popular products.
The effect of this on production is that today’s products are tested and engineered to be of the highest quality and also accommodate many customer needs. In terms of marketing management, it means being able to listen to the customers and not only what they like and dislike but what their needs are and how they can be met.
One great example of how businesses have adapted to customers can be seen in the auto industry. Today’s vehicles come standard with such things as mp3 players, navigational systems, Bluetooth capability, and even added cup holders and grocery bag hooks. Also, cars are now equipped with more added safety features than ever before.
