Highlights some of the key issues marketers are confronted with and discusses reasons for implementation of certain strategies. Concludes that, for marketing strategies to be effective, they should take into consideration the heterogeneity of the mature market and the specific product or service being marketed. Uses the results of recent studies to illustrate how such target product‐specific strategies can be developed.
