It Took “Partners,” One Of The 9P’s To Create A "Shoezie" And A Father’s Day Promotion?

Father's Day is one week from today. And "Partners,” is one of the 9P’s.

Creating a Father’s Day Promotion, another of the Nine P's of Marketing. 

Two brands have come together for Father’s Day.

Miller Lite and New Balance partnered and teamed up.

For this Father’s Day promotion it’s the “Shoezie.”  Or a shoe for your beer. Or beer for your shoe.

Actually it’s a New Balance’s classic 624 Trainer and a Lite beer as in Miller's Lite Beer. 

With New Balance, the limited-edition hook is that Miller Lite’s the “father” of light beer has a sweepstakes to get "shoezies." What is a "shoezie?"

The Shoezie is a koozie and looks like a classic New Balance shoe but is specially designed to have the beer fit into the athletic shoe.

I am a senior Forensic Marketing Expert, Advertising expert, Advertising/Marketing consultant with Londre Marketing Consultants, LLC.

I created the 9P's of Marketing. I own a copyright for the Nine P’s/9 P's of Marketing ©2007 concepts and Marketing practices, which augment the Marketing Mix (Product, Price, Promotion and Place) or the 4P’s by the American Marketing Association (AMA), Neil Borden and Jerome McCarthy in the study and practice of Marketing.

The Nine P's/9P's of Marketing help identify marketing problems in a number of strategic areas and help develop profitable marketing’s objectives, strategies, tactics and solutions. The 9P's are insightful. 

In Marketing, the "customer," or potential consumers should be the center of the universe or "king," but they are missing in the 4P's. I feel from my study and research that there needs to be more focus on the "Customer," or "People." "People" or market segments, which utilize demographics, geographics, psychographics, behavioral characteristics and technographics, are vital, learning components of the 9P's.

I consult and teach using the Marketing concepts and practices of the Nine P's/9P's of Marketing.


In the study and practice of Marketing, brand, advertising and marketing managers develop plans, strategies and tactics. The Nine P’s include these important concepts, practices and components:

  • People (Segmentation and Targeting)
    • In my 9P's, I stress that firms need to look and analyze potential, new, existing and repeat customers and users. 
    • To understand your "People" or market segments, you will need to or may need to utilize many characteristics, including demographics (such as age, family size, family life cycle, gender, income, occupation, education, religion, race, culture, generation, nationality, and social class), geographicspsychographics (buyers are on basis of psychological/personality traits, lifecycle, values), behavioral characteristics (needs and benefits, decision roles, user and usage-related variables, occasions, user status, usage rate buyer-readiness stage, loyalty status, attitude and multiple bases) and technographics (potential buyers may or may not have the software and computer skills. Think employees here too, which may be a vital component or components of the 9P's of Marketing. 
    • Once a target market is chosen, the organization can develop its marketing strategies to target a market segment or market segments
    • It’s easy to market toward demographics, but brands can’t connect with people unless they learn how they think. By developing mindset-based marketing strategies, brand decision-making can better resonate with these segments, targets and audiences to increase consumer loyalty.
    • Brand managers need to look at at their customers and/or potential users. Do you understand your potential customer's purchase and usage touchpoints, their habits and how they engage with your brand? Competing for their attention? 
    • Place "consumers," "People" or "potential buyers" in the middle of a circle. Find information or data on them. Add the other components in the other nine P's.
    • Post Covid 19 pandemic, I'm seeing "People" want an exceptional buying experience, which includes ethics and the company’s values. People are caring about convenience, comfort, ethics, and sustainability.  Look at home delivery of meals and everything on Amazon and Walmart or Target.
    • “People” or consumers prefer to buy “Products” from brands that share their values and “purpose-driven” movements.
    • Targeting mindsets allows brands to connect with consumers on an emotional level, which positively affects brands’ bottom lines.
    • Consumer and shopping data, plus first-party data can also help brands identify what people find valuable and important. You need to know where they live, how they work and play?
    • "People" or targeting has almost always been left out of the traditional "Marketing Mix," almost every diagram includes the four P's with Product, Promotion, Place and Price.
    • In Marketing, from my education, training, research and analysis plus testimony, there needs to be greater focus on the buyer, "customer," or "People," in both planning ad implementation.
  • Product and Services
    • A shoezie is new product development but more so a promotion and a partnership which teamed together to create a promotion. Under the 9P's, it's the goods and service combination the firm offers to the target market, including variety of product mix, features, branding, designs, packaging, sizes, services, maintenance contracts, warranties and return policies.
    • A product (service) is anything that can be offered to a market for attention, acquisition, use or consumption that might satisfy a want or need.
  • Place (Distribution)
  • Price: 
    • I’m finding that “People” or potential customers in my 9P’s, actual consumers are no longer buying “Products” and services based solely on “Price” and product quality.
    • An IBM study found that Nearly six in 10 consumers ("People") surveyed are willing to change their buying habits to reduce environmental impact. They found that over 70% would pay a premium of 35%, on average, for brands and products that are sustainable and environmentally responsible.
  • Planning
  • Promotion: 
    • There are eight (8) major, strategic components or communication elements which are personal and non-personal communication activities. 
    • The activities that communicate the merits of the overall product include:
      • Personal Selling/ Sales Force: Sales persons
        • Listen more than you talk. People who listen more, learn more, plus helps you position your service/product/solution or offering. 
      • Advertising: There's an expression "It is only creative if the product or service sells." I wanted to add "It is only good media spending if it sells." 
      • Sales Promotion
      • Collateral Materials
      • Direct Marketing (also referred to as Action or Direct Response Advertising)
      • Interactive/Internet/Web, Digital Media, Social Media:  
      • Events and Experiences
      • Public Relations/PR
    • Here are some strategic comments and questions under Promotion:
      • To whom should you target and promote? Under "People"/Targeting, target market, audience with media characteristics fall here.
      • What should you promote? Strategic copy points.
      • Evaluate the eight different elements under Promotion and your brand's practices. That affects media planning.
      • Ask is there a better way? A different promotional mix. There has to be a better way. 
      • What are your costs in dollars and manpower or person power? Ask "Is there a different way or ways to budget?" 
      • Look at different strategic partners? Their costs?
      • You can differentiate with price. Discounting? Special sales? What economic and discount levels should you offer? Look at revenue versus costs. 
      • What form or combination of promotion should you offer? Features?
      • How frequent? Add media planning here. 
  • Partners
  • Presentation: 
    • Consumers are voting with their wallet and pocketbook.
    • Some research says that consumers or my "People" care about business and their brands that have a social conscience (for the environment, for their workers, for societal issues, etc.). These "People" are actually prepared to pay more for these brands. They will support the brands that do, and ditch brands that don’t.
    • It's been reported that consumers or "people" are socially aware about how brands, products and businesses behave. 
    • Deloitte found that “62% of customers said that they are more likely to spend with companies who have taken extra steps to ensure the safety and well-being of their employees during lockdown.”

Skyrocketing Inflation With Commodity Prices, Where Does That Fall Under 9P's Of Marketing?

There are signs of inflation

We are seeing oil at a two-year high. 

We see lumber, iron, gasoline more than a buck higher than last year, energy, aluminum, copper, wheat are at higher prices. Some prices are skyrocketing. 

We are all seeing a reaction to the economy and markets opening after last year and a couple of months. 

Markets and consumers ("People") react to rapid changes in the goods they buy and we are seeing higher prices. 

Especially at a Home Depot in the buying of home improvement products such as building supplies and wood. Also at the super market. 

I'm looking at goods ("product") and products more than services, even though services make up about 80% of the weighting in the U.S. consumer price index. 

While raw materials and commodities are sometimes a smaller part of the actual price, under the nine P's of Marketing, Products, Partners, Price and Product are the elements greatly affected. 

Commodity prices are volatile.

Targeting And Using Words "Near Me?" Used "Great Chinese Restaurant Near Me" Yesterday. A Great Way To Use "People" Data For Your Need Campaign?

Looking to acquire new "People?" Potential customers becoming buyers?

We are in an interesting time (coming out of the pandemic) when some consumers or as I created the term "people" or potential consumers or customers are venturing out and shopping. 

Emarketer found that 89% of marketers use location or geographical data. Again, using "people" date and adding "place" under the 9P's I created

"Near me?" Use those terms or words or copy in a smartphone to find stores and restaurants, or to find "great" ones. 

These are truly "magic" words for any Marketing or advertising campaign.

Let's use a little Marketing "Show and Tell."

Let's talk about location, location, location. What is geofencing? 

Geofencing is a location-based service in which an app or other software uses WiFi, GPS, RFID or other cellular data to introduce or trigger a pre-programmed, promotional action or tactic when a mobile device or RFID tag enters or exits a virtual boundary set up around a "place" or geographical location. It is known as a "geofence."

Another way of describing "geofencing" is a location-based service ("Place") that businesses use to engage their audience "People" by sending relevant messaging to smartphone users who enter a pre-defined location or geographic area.

Instead of Paying For A Super Bowl TV Spot, What Did Hyundai Do To Customize Their Advertising?

Selling the look of the new Hyundai Tucson compact SUV on-screen.

But instead of paying $183K a second for a Super Bowl spot on CBS this year what did Hyundai do? They got into bed with a marketing and advertising program with Disney's Marvel characters, ABC and ESPN.

Kind of smart.

They were not in the big game but they are now into the "experiences" of Disney's Marvel characters, ESPN's "SportsCenter," ABC's "Black-ish,"  

For five Super Bowl, Hyundai spent big money in the big game. But 2021 is a new game.

Commodities Fall Under "Products" And "Partners" And What Part Do They Play In Consumer Prices ("Price," under The 9P's Of Marketing?

There may be huge numbers out this week. Price increases. Inflation numbers 

We see a commodity boom especially after the 14 or 15 month pandemic. 

What's up. Oi is really up? Gasoline is up more an a dollar a gallon.

So is wheat, lumber, iron ore and copper. There are fears inflation could skyrocket. 

Commodities usually play a small part in the overall price in determining inflation. 

Services are a bigger part of our economy. 

Think distribution and "place." Retail. Internet sales. 

Commodities are used in the producing and production of products. Not services unless you think of fuel costs and airline tickets are up too.

I am a senior Forensic Marketing Expert, Advertising expert, Advertising/Marketing consultant with Londre Marketing Consultants, LLC.


I created the 9P's of Marketing. I own a copyright for the Nine P’s/9 P's of Marketing ©2007 concepts and Marketing practices, which augment the Marketing Mix (Product, Price, Promotion and Place) or the 4P’s by the American Marketing Association (AMA), Neil Borden and Jerome McCarthy in the study and practice of Marketing.

The Nine P's/9P's of Marketing help identify marketing problems in a number of strategic areas and help develop profitable marketing’s objectives, strategies, tactics and solutions. The 9P's are insightful. 

In Marketing, the "customer," or potential consumers should be the center of the universe or "king," but they are missing in the 4P's. I feel from my study and research that there needs to be more focus on the "Customer," or "People." "People" or market segments, which utilize demographics, geographics, psychographics, behavioral characteristics and technographics, are vital, learning components of the 9P's.


I consult and teach using the Marketing concepts and practices of the Nine P's/9P's of Marketing.


In the study and practice of Marketing, brand, advertising and marketing managers develop plans, strategies and tactics. The Nine P’s include these important concepts, practices and components:

  • People (Segmentation and Targeting)
    • In my 9P's, I stress that firms need to look and analyze potential, new, existing and repeat customers and users. 
    • To understand your "People" or market segments, you will need to or may need to utilize many characteristics, including demographics (such as age, family size, family life cycle, gender, income, occupation, education, religion, race, culture, generation, nationality, and social class), geographicspsychographics (buyers are on basis of psychological/personality traits, lifecycle, values), behavioral characteristics (needs and benefits, decision roles, user and usage-related variables, occasions, user status, usage rate buyer-readiness stage, loyalty status, attitude and multiple bases) and technographics (potential buyers may or may not have the software and computer skills. Think employees here too, which may be a vital component or components of the 9P's of Marketing. 
    • Once a target market is chosen, the organization can develop its marketing strategies to target a market segment or market segments
    • It’s easy to market toward demographics, but brands can’t connect with people unless they learn how they think. By developing mindset-based marketing strategies, brand decision-making can better resonate with these segments, targets and audiences to increase consumer loyalty.
    • Brand managers need to look at at their customers and/or potential users. Do you understand your potential customer's purchase and usage touchpoints, their habits and how they engage with your brand? Competing for their attention? 
    • Place "consumers," "People" or "potential buyers" in the middle of a circle. Find information or data on them. Add the other components in the other nine P's.
    • Post Covid 19 pandemic, I'm seeing "People" want an exceptional buying experience, which includes ethics and the company’s values. People are caring about convenience, comfort, ethics, and sustainability.  Look at home delivery of meals and everything on Amazon and Walmart or Target.
    • “People” or consumers prefer to buy “Products” from brands that share their values and “purpose-driven” movements.
    • Targeting mindsets allows brands to connect with consumers on an emotional level, which positively affects brands’ bottom lines.
    • Consumer and shopping data, plus first-party data can also help brands identify what people find valuable and important. You need to know where they live, how they work and play?
    • "People" or targeting has almost always been left out of the traditional "Marketing Mix," almost every diagram includes the four P's with Product, Promotion, Place and Price.
    • In Marketing, from my education, training, research and analysis plus testimony, there needs to be greater focus on the buyer, "customer," or "People," in both planning ad implementation.
  • Product and Services
    • Under the 9P's, it's the goods and service combination the firm offers to the target market, including variety of product mix, features, branding, designs, packaging, sizes, services, maintenance contracts, warranties and return policies.
    • A product (service) is anything that can be offered to a market for attention, acquisition, use or consumption that might satisfy a want or need.
  • Place (Distribution)
  • Price: 
    • I’m finding that “People” or potential customers in my 9P’s, actual consumers are no longer buying “Products” and services based solely on “Price” and product quality.
    • An IBM study found that Nearly six in 10 consumers ("People") surveyed are willing to change their buying habits to reduce environmental impact. They found that over 70% would pay a premium of 35%, on average, for brands and products that are sustainable and environmentally responsible.

What's A Major Change In Transforming China's Consumer And Technological Markets?China is aging. China will alllow couples to have three children Not Two.

China is aging. 

China's Ruling Communist Party will allow couples to have three children. The new initiative comes from President Xi Jinping. He and the ruling party want to "..be conducive to improving China's population structure." They will also change retirement ages and pension benefits. 

Why? The country is aging. The decision of limiting to two is and was having an affect on their markets, economy and society. Not two. Three  or instead of two. 

It was in 1980 that the ruling party forced birth rates limits. That's more than four decades ago. 

China needs more working aged people. These people are also consumers or "People," in my nine P's.

Changes may be slow. 

It's not a slam dunk since six years ago the rules or restrictions were eased but the demographics didn't change because of the costs and realities of having more children, couples didn't see the advantages of having children and the added disruptions to their jobs and they saw their aging parents too, needing care.

Are Digital Currencies, Virtual Currencies, Bitcoins A Product? What Are They Worth. Just One?

There's plenty of speculation on this virtual currency or bitcoins.  

Some large companies (think Dish, PayPal, Overstock are accepting bitcoins as payment. With the 9P's of Marketing, the answer is "yes." They are a "product," and are also ways to pay for products and services. 

Today a Bitcoin is worth?  

One Bitcoin equals $35,684.60 United States. 

Bitcoin exchanges are Binance, Coinbase and Gemini or at a neighborhood bitcoin ATM. 

There's also a bunch of Bitcoin ATMs which are a product, too. 

They may be investments too. They are not like stocks since  with stocks you own a share of a company's future profits. 

Unfortunately if you are investing in bitcoins, it is nothing but a unique code. 

Be sure if someone asks you to pay in bitcoins it's probably a scammer or a fraudulent situation.

You can't trace bitcoins. 

Your possible transaction is part of a digital ledger or a blockchain and they are using a network of computers.
