Keeping in mind the same philosophy these comaoy put in all their marketing efforts in reducing the cost of production and strengthening their distribution system.

Product concept: Those companies who believe in this philosophy are of the option that if the quality of goods or services is of good standard, the customer can be easily attracted. On the basis of this philosophy or idea these companies direct their Marketing efforts to increasing the quality of thier product.
