The Marketing Mix
(The 4 P's of Marketing)

Marketing decisions generally fall into the following four controllable categories:
• Product
• Price
• Place (distribution)
• Promotion
The term "marketing mix" became popularized after Neil H. Borden published his 1964 article, The Concept of the Marketing Mix. Borden began using the term in his teaching in the late 1940's after James Culliton had described the marketing manager as a "mixer of ingredients".

Despite its limitations and perhaps because of its simplicity, the use of this framework remains strong and many marketing textbooks have been organized around it.
