The marketing concept consists of

  • buyers
  • sellers
  • goods or services
  • price and
  • the exchange process

The buyer is the person creating the demand for the goods. The seller is the person supplying the goods. The good or service is the commodity to be exchanged. The price is the agreed money value one is willing to accept or pay for the goods. The exchange process is the passing over of the commodity or service from the seller to the buyer. (King & Wright, 2005)
