About The Book

Marketing is increasingly becoming important in today`s competitive global village. At the same time, marketing is undergoing profound changes, both as an academic field, and as a practicing function. Environmental forces such as information and communication technology, and globalization are affecting marketing to a great extent. The perspective of marketing is changing from a goods dominant field to an experience dominant area. The resources and the mindset required to create experiences are going to be different from those required to create products and services. Marketers have to think more and more about creating holistic experiences, rather than just disjointed set of customer interactions.

Emerging media has changed the paradigm of marketing by making customers active participants in creation, dissemination, and consumption of marketing messages and offerings. Customers are gradually gaining more control on content and delivery of the firm`s offering. Marketing professionals now have the task of engaging the customers. New areas of study are emerging that explore the brain`s responses to advertisements, brands, and the messages. Technology is pervading many of the hitherto human interfaces of marketing. It is playing a greater role in the effective acquisition, consumption, and disposal of an offering. Society looks forward to business for delivering goods, services, and experiences in a manner that is beneficial to all the stakeholders of the society. With increasing awareness, marketing practice has to give more attention to such demands of the society.

This book has compiled the papers in four sections. First section has papers on general services marketing themes such as organizational and customer citizenship behaviour, customer relationship marketing, customer rage behaviour and customer grievances, marketing of higher education, tourism, and spiritual marketing. Second section of the book, retail marketing, has papers associated to the area of retail. Third section has papers related to marketing and operations management. Fourth section of the book has papers on marketing of financial services.
