Effective marketing mix management enables marketers to createa combination of elements that will enable wisely manage the company's budget in order toachieve the desired objectives. Companies that strive to operate effectively and achieve theirgoals have to pay well to control all elements of the marketing mix. In order to achieve the bestresult it is not enough to use only one or a few elements. The formation of the marketing mixelements requires taking into account the characteristics of each element so that they could bealigned. The non-alignment of the above-mentioned elements of interaction might be thecompany's shortcomings. Marketing mix analyzes authors like Pruskus (2015), Rad, Akbari(2014), Rahnama, Beiki (2013), Ria (2011), Sereikienė-Abromaitytė (2013), Singh (2012) andothers.2. THE CONCEPT OF MARKETING MIXMarketing mix means the product, distribution, promotion and pricing strategies to produce andcarry out exchanges and achieve the target markets. "Marketing mix - interrelated actions andsolutions to meet consumer needs and to achieve the company's marketing goals, a whole"(Sereikienė-Abromaitytė (2013)). "Marketing mix - a set of relevant factors and solutions thatenable customers to meet the (national) needs and achieve the goals set by the company (Pruskus(2015)). According to Singh (2016), marketing is a complex range of marketing mix solutionvariables used in the company seeking to sell their goods and services.Table 1: Definition of marketing mixDefinitionMarketing mix is originating from the single P (price) of microeconomic theory(Chong, 2003). McCarthy (1964) offered the “marketing mix”, often referred toas the “4Ps”, as a means of translating marketing planning into practice(Bennett, 1997). Marketing mix is not a scientific theory, but merely aconceptual framework that identifies the principal decision making managersmake in configuring their offerings to suit consumers’ needs. The tools can beused to develop both long-term strategies and short-term tactical programmes(Palmer, 2004).Riaz (2011)Marketing mix is defined as set of controllable marketing tools that a companyuses to create a desired response in the targeted market. (Set of these tools isgenerally referred to as 4P’s of Marketing, being Product, Price, Promotion andPlace.Rad, Akbari Marketing mix is a controllable part of marketing tools that affects the demand(2014)and increases it (Jonathan Ivy, 2008: 298). By the compound, mix, or acombination, it is meant that the four ps (product, price, promotion, place)should have an established and coordinated systematic approach in order tohave effective influence on persuading the customers. In other words, the rightproduct at affordable prices is accompanied by better distribution and use ofappropriate communication techniques and they act together in costumers'views.Singh (2012) Marketing mix is the combination of different marketing decision variablesbeing used by the firm to market its goods and services. After identifying themarket and gathering the basic information about it, the next step is theAuthorGoi (2009)Http:// International Journal of Research - GRANTHAALAYAH[25-37]

It offers an optimum combination of all marketing ingredients sothat companies can realise goals for example profit, sales volume, marketshare, return on investment etc. The marketing mix is grouped under fourelements i.e., Product, Price, Place, Promotion.Therefore, while satisfying the needs of consumers, the company makes decisions related to theproduct, its price, distribution / place and promotion, and the four of the group is considered tobe the key marketing mix elements also called - "4P" marketing mix (see.

In scientific literature this addition to the complex is called "7P marketing complex.The planning of marketing activities can be used in all the marketing mix elements.3. PRODUCTProduct is defined as a physical product or service to the consumer for which he is willing topay. It includes half of the material goods, such as furniture, clothing and grocery items andintangible products, such as services, which users buy (Singh (2016)).Dang (2015) emphasizes that the product is the first and one of the key marketing elements.Author cit. Kotler and Armstrong emphasizes that the product: "is what can be offered to themarket, to get attention, to be the acquisition of used or used, and can satisfy the wants or needs."In fact, it was observed that in most cases the literature is dominated by a narrow "product"concept of perception, so in order to better understand the nature of the product see Figure 2,which shows a wider perception.Http:// International Journal of Research - GRANTHAALAYAH[25-37]

[Isoraite *, Vol.4 (Iss.6): June, 2016]ISSN- 2350-0530(O) ISSN- 2394-3629(P)IF: 4.321 (CosmosImpactFactor), 2.532 (I2OR)4) Maturity, in this period, sales revenue growth decreases, because the majority of potentialbuyers choose alternative products or due to the increasing marketing expenses in orderto protect the product from its competitors;5) Decline, the stage when sales revenues and profits begin to decrease.However, in order to further expand the product awareness, Thrush (2011) proposes to assessthese three points of view: Customer Satisfaction approach; The materiality of importance in terms of; The process and outcome perspective.Thus, the real benefits - the main reason why a consumer buys a product, which shows the basicbenefits of the product to the consumer. The main product - this is the minimum characteristicsof the product, which requires that the user can receive substantial benefits. The expectedproduct includes the following features of the product, which the user expects to get out of it, andthis covers the user's expectations. A supplemented by product - this is a product that surpassesthe expectations of the average user, and can be supplemented with new properties or theimproved existing ones. It depends on many factors: the chosen marketing strategy targetedsegment features competing product characteristics, product technical feasibility, the availableamount of resources, etc. The potential of the product can transcend not only the smallest butalso the largest expectations of a contemporary user and have properties, which may surprise theuser (Thrush (2011)).The products are also classified (Uznienė (2011)): Consumer product - it (toothpaste, bread, newspapers, clothes, household appliances, etc.The product they purchase for their personal use and these products are still divided intominimum, valuable, exclusive and unmarketable (not intended to search): Necessary product - a product that the consumer buys frequently and almost immediatelywithout comparing it to other products of the same type; Valuable product - more Consumer-oriented product, which the consumer usuallycompares to others, considers its suitability, the quality, price and style; Exclusive product - is Consumer product that has unique characteristics or isdistinguished by its brand, which is bought by a large group of customers; Transgressed (not intended to search) the product (blood donation, life insurance) Consumer is a product which a user does not know, and if he knows he has no intentionto buy it.Meanwhile, the product range covers all goods family, class types, brands and units, which theseller offers to the buyer. The range - it's the company’s goods group/whole offered to theconsumer, which are similar not only in their features, but are also grouped according to certaincharacteristics, and focused on the users' needs. Where the range width of products offerednumber of groups, and shows the depth of one product group in the number of goods. The rangecan be characterized on the basis of not only the depth (deep range), N (width), but alsoalignment and saturation.Http:// International Journal of Research - GRANTHAALAYAH[25-37]

As such, theresult - in addition to visual expression can customer awareness; Non-accumulation - in which many services are projected at the same time as granted andmust not be prepared in advance and stored. This raises labor allocation problems, suchas seasonality; Non-severability - since services production and consumption are closely related, so theycannot be separated and have no severed features. As such, it cannot tell the customerwhere there is none; Heterogeneity - this is when the service is nothing other than the service provider and therecipient interaction, which may be granted not to every user similarly, for example, atelevision program about the increased taxes can be understood by each individual andfocused on the perception about heavier tax burdens on others that helps assess thecountry's budget collection (Sereikienė-Abromaitytė (2013)).In summary, the product concept is very broad and includes not only natural products andservices, but also the experience, people, places, property rights, businesses or organizations,information and ideas. Perception through the user needs of the approach includes 5 productlevels: the real benefits, the main product, expected product, added to the product, the potentialof the product. Furthermore, the products are classified according to the objects of consumptionproducts, which is still divided into minimum, valuable, exclusive and unmarketable (notintended to search).4. PRICEPrice is one of the most important marketing mix items and many scientists consider the price asone of the most important elements of the market, which increases not only profits, but alsomarket share. However, the price is not only one of the key factors in a competitive situation,which directly affects the company's sales and profitability indicators, but also one of the mostflexible marketing mix elements, which can quickly adapt to environmental changes. Therefore,it is the price is perceived as the only element of the marketing mix, generating revenue and themost important customer satisfaction and loyalty factor.With respect to prices, as one of the marketing mix elements observed in the scientific literature,there are different rates of conceptions and interpretations of the definition, for example:The price includes a fair assessment of the product, e.g., a good price for a good product (Ehmke,Fulton, Lusk (2016)). Kotler and Armstrong, the price is defined as the amount of money to payfor a product or service, or the value of the exchange help customers receive a product or servicefor a certain amount. "Thus, the direct cost of the period is the amount of money the buyer has topay for the product or service that is likely to buy it. "The price may also be defined as amonetary expression of value for the consumer agrees to pay" (Entrepreneurship Academy(2012). The price is the amount that the consumer must pay, that would involve exchanges, sothe price of the product depends on the different elements of change. The price is the onlyHttp:// International Journal of Research - GRANTHAALAYAH[25-37]

Thus, price isone of the factors affecting the consumer, because it helps him to understand the value of theproduct. Also, the price can be specified as an actual or valuable, giving value, and the price ofcompanies to identify their products or services in the role as the regulation of its marketability(Owomoyela, Olasunkanmi, Oyeniyi (2013)).Singh (2016) highlights that a very important factor in determining prices is influenced by thecost of the product, marketing strategy and costs associated with the distribution, advertisingcosts or price changes in the nature of the market.Pricing is dependent on volume of marketed production, so there is always an inverserelationship: the higher the price, the sales decline. Therefore, setting your product price can becomplicated and it is therefore possible to use the following measures: Cost-plus - are accompanied by a standard percentage of profits to the future costs tomanufacture the product, e.g., the evaluation of the fixed and variable costs; Value basis - some are based on the buyer's perception of value (rather than its cost).Here, the buyer's perception depends on all aspects of the product, including the price offactors such as the quality of the image and prestige; The competition - which relies on other companies competing products prices. Here, thecompany's prices compare the prices of their competitors and thus can directly monitortheir competitors and price response to changes occurring in the market. Becauseotherwise, customers can select other vendors on the basis of proposals submitted; Input Size - When entering a market is established a joint product price. Then, mostcompanies have to cut down or too not to increase prices in order to keep control of themarket; Discount - which is based on advertising, helps reduce prices and thus can attract newcustomers and expand the market share; Unprofitable guide - which is based on the assumption that the sale takes place at a pricelower than the cost of production in order to attract customers to the store to buy otherproducts; Psychological - which has an impact on consumer behaviour, such as a price that looksbetter: 4.99 per pound instead of 5.00 per pound.In summary, it can be said that the price is one of the factors affecting the consumer, because ithelps him to understand the value of the product. Therefore, the cost should include thefollowing in terms of money that will give value for the consumer willing to pay. Price is theonly element of the marketing for the income and all other elements are related to the cost. Itslevel depends on the volume of marketed production, so there is always an inverse relationship:the higher the price, the sales decline.5. PLACEAnother very important element of marketing is a place that is also called the distribution, whichis defined as the process and methods by which products or services reach customers (by Martin(2014)).Http:// International Journal of Research - GRANTHAALAYAH[25-37]
