    4 Ps of the marketing Mix.


    Every consumer has been affected by the marketing mix. This business tool is comprised of four elements:
    • Product: The item meets the consumer's needs or desires
    • Price: The cost yields enough profit while still being acceptable to the consumer
    • Promotion: The item is effectively advertised and promoted
    • Place: The product is properly distributed and available in a convenient location at the right time

    It is just asking you to focus on the significance of place and how the distribution chain can play a key role in the success of a business. You need to give examples of how you would do that , recognise the key aspects and explain how you would benefit or suffer depending on whether a business got its place strategy right or wrong.

    Not sure where the confusion is?
