Findings and
Conclusions
43 | P a g e

I got unanimous response when it came to choose means of communication for giving
advertisements. Clients preferred print media for giving advertisements.

It seemed that the cost factor was bothering the clients to the utmost. They got their ads
placed in TOI with one free ad in economic Times at a cheaper rate than doing the same in
Hindustan Times.

Some clients suggested that sub-headings should be bold. They could have grabbed the
attention of people when they flip through the pages of newspaper and it would be easy to
go through the entire classified without giving much tension to the retina.

Some clients expressed their grudges regarding space problem. They suggested adding
few more pages to education classifieds so they can advertise often.

44 | P a g e

CHAPTER

5
45 | P a g e

Suggestions and Recommendations

Material coming in by ads must have the correct path mentioned.

Strictly checking the material before accepting the ads.

The main grudge client's hold against HT classifieds was its higher rates in comparison
with TOI. Therefore, the rates should be a bit economical one keeping the competitor's rate in
mind, as this is a common tendency of consumers to compare two brands of same stature and
credibility.

Few more pages should be introduced in education classifieds, so that clients can
advertise often.

Sub-headings should be bold enough to lure the readers when they are flipping through
the pages.

SALES
AND
MARKETING

47 | P a g e

A sale is the exchange of a commodity or money as the price of a good or a service.


[1]
Sales (plural only) is activity related to selling or the amount of goods or services sold in a
given time period.
The seller or the provider of the goods or services completes a sale in response to
an acquisition, appropriation,[2] requisition or a direct interaction with the buyer at the point of
sale. There is a passing of title (property or ownership) of the item, and the settlement of a price,
in which agreement is reached on a price for which transfer of ownership of the item will occur.
The seller, not the purchaser generally executes the sale and it may be completed prior to the
obligation of payment. In the case of indirect interaction, a person who sells goods or service on
behalf of the owner is known as salesman or saleswoman.

Definition of sales[edit]
A person or organization expressing an interest in acquiring the offered item of value is referred
to as a potential buyer, prospective customer or prospect. Buying and selling are understood to be
two sides of the same "coin" or transaction. Both seller and buyer engage in a process of
negotiation to consummate the exchange of values. The exchange, or selling, process has implied
rules and identifiable stages. It is implied that the selling process will proceed fairly and ethically
so that the parties end up nearly equally rewarded. The stages of selling, and buying, involve
getting acquainted, assessing each partys need for the others item of value, and determining if
the values to be exchanged are equivalent or nearly so, or, in buyer's terms, "worth the price.
Sometimes, sellers have to use their own experiences when selling products with appropriate
discounts.
From a management viewpoint it is thought of as a part of marketing, although the skills required
are different. Sales often forms a separate grouping in a corporate structure, employing separate
specialist operatives known as salespersons (singular: salesperson). Selling is considered by
many to be a sort of persuading "art". Contrary to popular belief, the methodological approach of
selling refers to a systematic process of repetitive and measurable milestones, by which a
salesman relates his or her offering of a product or service in return enabling the buyer to
achieve their goal in an economic way.While the sales process refers to a systematic process of
repetitive and measurable milestones, the definition of the selling is somewhat ambiguous due to
the close nature of advertising, promotion, public relations, and direct marketing.

48 | P a g e

SALES AND MARKETING RELATIONSHIP

Marketing and sales differ greatly, but generally have the same goal. Selling is the final stage in
marketing, which also includes pricing, promotion, place and product (the 4 P's). A marketing
department in an organization has the goals of increasing the desirability and value to the
customer and increasing the number and engagement of interactions between potential customers
and the organization. Achieving this goal may involve the sales team using promotional
techniques such as advertising, sales promotion, publicity, and public relations, creating
new sales channels, or creating new products (new product development), among other things. It
can also include bringing the potential customer to visit the organization's website(s) for more
information, or to contact the organization for more information, or to interact with the
organization via social media such as Twitter, Facebook and blogs. Social values also play a
major role in consumer decision processes.
The field of sales process engineering views "sales" as the output of a larger system, not just as
the output of one department. The larger system includes many functional areas within an
organization. From this perspective, "sales" and "marketing" (among others, such as "customer
service") label for a number of processes whose inputs and outputs supply one another to varying
degrees. In this context, improving an "output" (such as sales) involves studying and improving
the broader sales process, as in any system, since the component functional areas interact and are
interdependent.[7]
Many large corporations structure their marketing departments so they are directly integrated
with all lines of business.[8] They create multiple teams with a singular focus and the managers of
these teams must coordinate efforts in order to drive profits and business success. For example,
an "inbound" focused campaign seeks to drive more customers "through the door", giving the
sales department a better chance of selling their product to the consumer. A good marketing
program would address any potential downsides as well.
The sales department would aim to improve the interaction between the customer and the sales
facility or mechanism (example, web site) and/or salesperson. Sales management would break
down the selling process and then increase the effectiveness of the discrete processes as well as
the interaction between processes. For example, in many out-bound sales environments, the
typical process includes out-bound calling, the sales pitch, handling objections, opportunity

identification, and the close. Each step of the process has sales-related issues, skills, and training
needs, as well as marketing solutions to improve each discrete step, as well as the whole process.
One further common complication of marketing involves the inability to measure results for a
great deal of marketing initiatives. In essence, many marketing and advertising executives often
lose sight of the objective of sales/revenue/profit, as they focus on establishing a
creative/innovative program, without concern for the top or bottom lines - a fundamental pitfall
of marketing for marketing's sake.
Many companies find it challenging to get marketing and sales on the same page. [9] The two
departments, although different in nature, handle very similar concepts and have to work together
for sales to be successful. Building a good relationship between the two that encourages
communication can be the key to success - even in a down economy.

Industrial marketing
The idea that marketing can potentially eliminate the need for sales people depends entirely on
context. For example, this may be possible in some B2C situations; however, for
many B2B transactions (for example, those involving industrial organizations) this is mostly
impossible.[citation needed] Another dimension is the value of the goods being sold. Fast-moving
consumer-goods (FMCG) require no sales people at the point of sale to get them to jump off the
supermarket shelf and into the customer's trolley. However, the purchase of large mining
equipment worth millions of dollars will require a sales person to manage the sales process particularly in the face of competitors. Small and medium businesses selling such large ticket
items to a geographically-disperse client base use manufacturers' representatives to provide these
highly personal service while avoiding the large expense of a captive sales force.

Sales and marketing alignment and integration


Another area of discussion involves the need for alignment and integration between corporate
sales and marketing functions. According to a report from the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)
Council, only 40 percent of companies have formal programs, systems or processes in place to
align and integrate the two critical functions.
50 | P a g e

Traditionally, these two functions, as referenced above, have operated separately, left in siloed
areas of tactical responsibility. Glen Petersen's book The Profit MaximizationParadox sees the
changes in the competitive landscape between the 1950s and the time of writing as so dramatic
that the complexity of choice, price and opportunities for the customer forced this seemingly
simple and integrated relationship between sales and marketing to change forever. Petersen goes
on to highlight that salespeople spend approximately 40 percent of their time preparing
customer-facing deliverables while leveraging less than 50 percent of the materials created by
marketing, adding to perceptions that marketing is out of touch with the customer and that sales
is resistant to messaging and strategy.
