The report will state how Taco Bell Corp carries out their marketing process around the world. 1.1 Definition of Marketing

What does the marketing mean? The words: advertising and selling are not enough to define marketing because there still have many words in marketing concept: needs, wants, and demands; marketing offers (products, services, and experiences); value and satisfaction; exchange, transactions, and relationship; and markets. Marketing concept cannot be complete without those meanings. Marketing as a process by which individuals and groups obtain what they need and want by creating and exchanging products and value with others. Today, marketing must be understood not in the old sense of making a sale – “telling and selling” – but in the new sense of satisfying customer needs. (page- 5/10)

1.2 Consumer Behaviour
Consumer Behaviour plays an important role in marketing. No one can predict consumer behaviour and what they want even, who are very successful in marketing field. There are two types of consumer: personal consumer and organization consumer. Personal consumers mean buying for your own use or for your family, furthermore, an organization’s consumer states that who make buying decisions for their companies for a living such as resellers, wholesalers and retailers. Consumer behaviour is based on culture, lifestyle, taste, personality, social and psychological. According to make successful marketing strategies, the most important thing is to understand the preferences of different consumers. The consumer buys product to satisfy the needs.
