Business is a dynamic field. Dynamics of the business change with each passing day. The ‘tried and tested’ Business to Business (B2B) model is challenged by a more efficient and flexible Business to Customer (B2C) model these days. The industrial revolution boosted the production capacities with the advent of sophisticated machinery and scientifically proven processes, giving rise to a consumer-oriented economy. Moreover, there is a considerable increase in the GDP and a sharp surge in per capita income which has increased the purchasing power of every citizen giving rise to the Consumer Market. Tapping these consumers and marketing the products, goods or services to them is called Consumer Marketing.
Consumer Marketing is defined as the activity of trying to sell goods or services to people for their own use, rather than to other companies. Consumer Marketing is a direct and precise way to reach the target customers by eliminating the middlemen or other businesses. Consumer Marketing is gaining popularity especially after the extensive use of the internet. Many companies are focusing on individual customers for increasing their business giving rise to a new domain called, ‘Consumer Marketing’. There is no doubt that there will be tremendous demands for trained Consumer Marketing professionals in the coming years.
