The struggle between quality and marketing tangible goods versus services has been a part of the marketing process. Though both are covered by the general umbrella of marketing, service marketing and product marketing can have a lot of differences. The mere fact that the particular goods are tangible versus nontangible services; creates two entirely different ways of marketing by reaping the benefits and advantages.
Yet service marketing nor product marketing is any easier, nor is either one at a disadvantage. The discovery and emphasis of benefits and advantages of a given marketing product is not dependent on its physical existence but rather a skillful exacerbation of obvious and hidden benefits. Thus, making both modes and methodologies equally a challenging
A successful marketing campaign depends on many factors equally weighing the outcome. Hence it is vital to avoid assigning too much weight to the tangibility of a product or service. The main emphasis in determining a marketing approach should be research and experience rather than Meta physical concerns.
Equally, it is important to emphasize the marketing methodology based on the most widely available and confirmed information which in turn allows discarding concerns about the validity of Meta physical issues.
Ultimately, though a nonscientific statement, marketing is much more about a balance of science and the art of communication. It is naïve to believe that marketing and its subsets, such as product or service marketing, are anything other than advanced and creative communication and conversation between a seller and buyer. Marketing certainly entails its fair share of science depending on information and action, but it also greatly depends on creativity, mainstream attitude, and thinking, innovative modes of communication, selection of communication channels, as well as artful use of language, sounds, and images. Hence, leads to a fair conclusion that the actual product or service at hand is not and should not be seen as the main concern rather than concentrating on determining the most effective, efficient, and viable methodology to communicate the benefits of the product or services at hand.
