Marketing and Environmental Forces – Clever Marketing 1.4

Marketing is the process of promoting and selling products or services to consumers. The marketing mix, which includes product, price, place, and promotion, is a set of tools used in marketing to help companies promote their products and services to customers.

However, environmental forces can have a significant impact on marketing outcomes.

Environmental forces are external factors that cannot be controlled by the company but can influence its marketing strategy. These can be broken down into a variety of categories such as political and regulatory, economic, competitive, technological, social and cultural, and physical and social environmental factors.

Political and regulatory factors refer to the efforts of government or other regulatory authorities aimed at establishing regulations to influence desired standards of business conduct e.g. consumer protection.

Economic factors include growth, inflation, employment rates, exchange rates, as well as interest rates, among other things.

Social and cultural factors include demographics, population growth rates, cultural trends, social norms, values, and beliefs that affect marketing messages.

Physical and social environmental factors refer to factors in a company’s surroundings such as the physical space and resources available as well as the social factors such as the community’s perception and opinions.

Environmental forces can influence how businesses market their product or service, and it is crucial for businesses to understand and appreciate these forces to develop an effective marketing strategy.
