Part of the Macmillan Master Series book series (MACMMA)


In the last chapter we considered the various types of business organisations. Most business organisations exist to make money. A business uses its resources, i.e. labour, money and materials, to produce a product or a service that the consumer wants. The successful business is usually the one that produces or provides what is required at a price that can be afforded using the minimum costs.

The following example will be used to explain the role of marketing, market research and advertising.
