Overview

Fundamentals of Marketing provides a sound appreciation of the fundamentals of the theory and practice of marketing. Using case studies drawn from a cross section of sectors, in particular the banking, hospitality, retail and public service sectors this textbook critically evaluates the effectiveness of different marketing strategies and approaches. Exploring the principles of marketing this volume engages the reader, not only in theory but also in practice, using a broad range of real-life case studies such as Coca Cola, Apple, FCUK, Virgin, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Dyno Rod and New Zealand wool.

It also emphasizes the role of Marketing Information Systems (MIS) using internal reporting, marketing intelligence and marketing research including the contribution from marketing research agencies and reviews the role of technology, e-commerce and the Internet in supporting successful marketing.
