In the new marketing concept, marketing begins and ends with the consumer. After his needs and wants have been systematically identified, analyzed, a product or service is conceptualized, designed and developed as a need-satisfying offering. Hence, after the due processes of other elements of the marketing mix (i.e.. pricing and distribution channel), Strategy comes in to sensitize the target market about the existence of that product (Smith, 2000:260). As an integral part of marketing mix, strategies is therefore used to communicate the unique selling proposition (USP) of an offering. Strategy is persuasive communication about an organization and its products. It is a communication that informs potential customers of the existence of products, and persuade them that those products have need satisfying offering (Kotler, 2001:28).in modern marketing management, marketing strategies for promoting consumer products may differ with that of industrial products in terms of application and design and conceptualization. The communication objectives may also differ. However, this research specifically focuses on the marketing strategies adopted by automobile manufacturers in marketing their products.
