PRLog - Dec. 14, 2011 - ALBANY, Calif. -- San Francisco – The marketing mix and the 4 Ps of marketing are often used interchangeably, however, they are distinct concepts . "Marketing mix" is a general phrase used to describe the different kinds of choices organizations have to make in the whole process of bringing a product or service to market. The 4 Ps is one way – probably the best-known way – of defining the marketing mix, and was first expressed in 1960 by E J McCarthy. Other marketing mix models have been developed over the years, including Boom and Bitner's 7Ps, sometimes called the extended marketing mix, which include the first 4 Ps, plus people, processes and physical layout decisions. This discussion will question the relevancy of these concepts to product managers and product marketers seeking to more effectively access and communicate the message of the market for their products.
