The ser#ice mar'eting mi+ is also 'nown as an e+tended mar'eting mi+ and is an integral part o" a ser#ice
blueprint design The ser#ice mar'eting mi+ consists o" @ P2s as compared to the < P2s o" a product
mar'eting mi+ )imply said$ the ser#ice mar'eting mi+ assumes the ser#ice as a product itsel" Fowe#er it

The product mar'eting mi+ consists o" the < P2s which are Product$ Pricing$ Promotions and Placement
The e+tended ser#ice mar'eting mi+ places ; "urther P2s which include People$ Process and Physical
e#idence All o" these "actors are necessary "or optimum ser#ice deli#ery
In T-) the physical e#idence o" the ser#ice they pro#ide is the most critical "actor -lients are regularly
updated about the progress made on their project through client calls and meetings Also the projects
which are already deli#ered are monitored with their per"ormance being e#aluated
0&$roduct: In case o" ser#ices$ the Iproduct2
is intangible$ heterogeneous and perishable
/oreo#er$ its production and consumption are
inseparable Fence$ there is scope "or
customi1ing the o""ering as per customer
re9uirements and the actual
customer
encounter there"ore assumes particular
signi"icance Fowe#er$ too much
customi1ation would compromise the
standard deli#ery o" the ser#ice and
ad#ersely a""ect its 9uality Fence
particular care has to be ta'en in designing the
ser#ice o""ering
T-) being a ser#ices company "ocuses on pro#iding
customi1ed solutions to its clients
2 $ricing: Pricing o" ser#ices is
tougher than
pricing o" goods !hile the latter can be priced easily by ta'ing into account the raw material costs$ in
case o" ser#ices attendant costs 6 such as labor and o#erhead costs 6 also need to be "actored in Thus a
restaurant not only has to charge "or the cost o" the "ood ser#ed but also has to calculate a price "or the
ambience pro#ided The "inal price "or the ser#ice is then arri#ed at by including a mar'6up "or an
ade9uate pro"it margin
TC practices two 'ind o" pricing schemes7
a) Per hour Aased
b) Project Aased
; $lace: )ince ser#ice deli#ery is concurrent with its production and cannot be stored or
transported$ the location o" the ser#ice product assumes importance )er#ice pro#iders ha#e to

situated in the countryside away "rom the rush and noise o" a city
TC has always tried to locate itsel" near the clients A lot o" projects T-) is associated with are on done
on the client site Also T-) uses lot o" technology to pro#ides its clients with su""icient resources and
minimi1e special limitations
< $romotion: )ince a ser#ice o""ering can be easily replicated promotion becomes crucial in
di""erentiating a ser#ice o""ering in the mind o" the consumer Thus$ ser#ice pro#iders o""ering identical
ser#ices such as airlines or ban's and insurance companies in#est hea#ily in ad#ertising their ser#ices
This is crucial in attracting customers in a segment where the ser#ices pro#iders ha#e nearly identical
o""erings
% $eo%le: People are a de"ining "actor in a ser#ice deli#ery process$ since a ser#ice is inseparable "rom
the person pro#iding it Thus$ a restaurant is 'nown as much "or its "ood as "or the ser#ice pro#ided by its
sta"" The same is true o" ban's and department stores -onse9uently$ customer ser#ice training "or sta""
has become a top priority "or many organi1ations todayT-) maintains a large pool o" human resources
This can be reali1ed by the "act that it is largest employer o" India The employees o" T-) are its "ace
since they coordinate with the clients directly
? $rocess: The process o" ser#ice deli#ery is crucial since it ensures that the same standard o" ser#ice is
repeatedly deli#ered to the customers There"ore$ most companies ha#e a ser#ice blue print which
pro#ides the details o" the ser#ice deli#ery process$ o"ten going down to e#en de"ining the ser#ice script
and the greeting phrases to be used by the ser#ice sta""
@ $hysical E'idence: )ince ser#ices are intangible in nature most ser#ice pro#iders stri#e to
incorporate certain tangible elements into their o""ering to enhance customer e+perience Thus$ there are
hair salons that ha#e well designed waiting areas o"ten with maga1ines and plush so"as "or patrons to read
