    : : : Summary OverviewAll of the four Ps--product, place, promotion and price--have an impact on satisfying the needs of consumers in the target market. No single area is more important than the others--they are all interconnected.Key IssuesIn developing a marketing strategy, the jobs of selecting a target market and developing the marketing mix are interrelated. The outcome of the strategy is evaluated against the objectives of the marketer. Discussion Question: Choose a product or service and discuss how the elements of the marketing mix interact with each other. For example, how do product decisions affect decisions about place, promotion, and price?Keeping in mind the marketing concept, the needs of the target market determine the nature of the marketing mix, so developing a thorough understanding of the target market leads to good strategies.
