Marketing process is broad and includes all of the following:
1.Discovering what product, service or idea customers want.
2.Producing a product with the appropriate features and quality.
3.Pricing the product correctly.
4.Promoting the product; spreading the word about why customers should buy it.
5.Selling and delivering the product into the hands of the customer.
