Week 3 Discussion
Creating Value in the Sales Process
Define a real-world product or service which has a direct sales force. Using value chain and marketing mix (4 P’s) considerations from chapter 3, describe how this supplier creates value within the sales process.
As an example, when I searched for and purchased a condo in Palm Springs last summer:
My agent built value through the service she provided by sending me links to properties listings matching my requirements, she drove me to see properties and was informative in offering advice on those occasions, and her agency had a well-known and respected name. (this is Product/Service)
She negotiated her fee downward for me. (this is Price)
and she had a blog where she exhibited her knowledge of the business. She also networked to be known in my area and so that I was referred to her by my sister (this is Promotion).
Distribution channel is direct sales within a brokerage which operates as an intermediary within the real estate brokerage industry (this is Place)
