Marketing management is the directing of an organization’s resources to develop and implement the best possible strategy to reach its desired consumer segment to maximize sales of a particular product or service.
“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.
The concept reviews the process used to determine what products or services may be of interest to the customers and the strategy to use for the marketing mix.
CONCEPTS OF MARKETING
The production concept is used when the demand for a product is higher than its supply. The philosophy here is “supply creates its demand.” Therefore, the focus is on manufacturing more product to make sure it is widely available.
Contrary to the production concept, this concept creates consumers value products of a higher quality as opposed to price and availability. Therefore, the focus is more on quality and less on quantity. The idea of the product concept is that if you are selling a product of greater quality, minimal marketing is required.
Where the production and product concept focuses on manufacturing, the selling concept focuses on the making of an actual sale. The number one focuses on the manager is to make money, no matter the quality, needs of consumers, supply, or demand.
The marketing concept works on the philosophy that consumers buy products that fulfill their needs. A manager that takes the marketing approach will conduct extensive market research to determine the needs of consumers and how to fulfill them better than its competitions.
Marketing managers with this approach are also concerned about the well-being of society and feel a responsibility to tend to the world around them. The societal concept creates a balance of social and environmental welfare, customer relationships, and sales.
The product is either a tangible good or an intangible service that seems to meet a specific customer need or demand. All products follow a logical product life cycle, and marketers need to understand and plan for the various stages and their unique challenges. It is key to understand those problems that the product is attempting to solve. The benefits offered by the product and all its features need to be understood, and the unique selling proposition of the product needs to be studied.
Price comes the actual amount the end-user is expected to pay for a product. How a product is priced will directly affect how it sells. This is linked to what the perceived value of the product is to the customer rather than an objective costing of the product on offer. If a product is priced higher or lower than its perceived value, then it will not sell. This is why it is imperative to understand how a customer sees what you are selling.
The marketing communication strategies and techniques all fall under the promotion heading. These may include advertising, sales promotions, social offers, and public relations. Whatever the channel used, it doesn’t have to be successful for the product, the price, and the end-user it is being marketed to. It is important to differentiate between marketing and promotion. Promotion is just the communication aspect of the entire marketing function.
Place or placement has to do with how the product will be provided to the customer. Distribution is a key element of placement. The placement strategy will help assess what channel is the most suited to a product. How the user accesses a product also needs to compliment the rest of the product strategy.
An energy drink is a type of drink containing stimulate drugs, usually including caffeine, which is marketed as providing mental and physical stimulation (marketed as “energy,” but distinct from food energy). They may or may not be carbonated, and many also contain sugar or other sweeteners, herbal extracts & taurine and amino acids. They are a subset of the larger group of energy products, which includes bars and gels, and distinct from sports drinks, which are advertised to enhance sports performance.

WHY ENERGY DRINK?
Adolescents widely consume energy drinks as the products claim to improve performances, endurance, and alertness. Increased urbanization, rising disposable income, and growing health consciousness among the Indian youth have increased the demand for non-carbonated drinks. At the same time, long and erratic working hours and the trends of social gatherings are driving Indian consumers towards the consumption of energy drinks, which are primarily classified as non-alcoholic, caffeinated beverages. However, health concerns regarding high sugar content restrict growth.

UNIQUE SELLING PROPOSITION
With so many businesses offering the same types of products and services, you can only win over your competition if your offer is available for a particular customer at a particular time, and there is not or if your product or service offers something that theirs does not. Chances are, your competitors offer are in the same marketplace as yours, so it is apparent that your means of survival is to be able to communicate to your target customers that what you are selling has certain features that cannot be found elsewhere. This is what we call a unique selling point or USP. Essentially, a USP is a summary of features that make your business unique to your target market.

Grading is the process of sorting individual units of a product into well-defined classes or grades of quality. The goods are graded or sorted out into different lots following the specified standards. The established standards lay down the grades of the product. In the case of manufactured goods, goods can be of uniform quality. But agricultural products like fruits and vegetables, etc. vary in quality. Therefore, classes or grades of quality are set, and different units of the product are sorted into the established standard grades. Thus, grading involves the division of products into classes.
Packaging refers to the process of designing the package, such as containers, wrappers, etc. It plays a very significant role in the marketing success of failure.
LEVELS Of PACKAGING
- Primary packaging → It refers to the product’s immediate package. In certain cases, such a package is retained until the consumer is ready to use the product.
- Secondary Packaging → It is the additional packaging given to a product to protect it. Such packaging is retained until the consumer wants to start using the product.
- Transportation Packaging → It refers to packages essential for storing, identifying, or transporting.
CHANNELS OF DISTRIBUTION
A distribution channel is a chain of businesses or intermediaries through which a good or service passes until it reaches the end consumer. It can include wholesalers, retailers, distributors, and even the internet itself. The first channel is the longest; in that, it includes all four, from producer to the end consumer. The end and the adult beverage industry is a perfect example.
The second channel is one where the producer sells directly to a retailer, who then sells the producer’s product to the end consumer. The third and final channel is direct to consumer model, where the producer sells its product directly to the end consumer.
WAREHOUSING AND TRANSPORTATION
Warehousing is a key component of the overall business supply chain. The supply chain consists of the facilities and distribution options for the procurement of materials from the manufacturer to consumers and all points in between. It includes the production of materials into components and finished products and then the distribution to customers.
Weekly orders would be dispatched for local retailers and shop owners from the centralized distribution center. While monthly stock would be updated at the centralized stock center. Depending upon the location, quantity, and availability, the mode of transportation is selected.
