The problem results from the way many companies consider their workers. Ton, however, argues that workers are not merely a cost; they can be a source of profit — a major one. I was thinking about this as my wife and I re-entered Ikea.

Marketing Place As you will be aware from your experiences as a consumer, producers rarely sell their goods or services directly to the person that consumes them. Marketing channels, or place in terms of the marketing mix, are the means by which interdependent organizations move products or services from the producer to the person that purchases or consumes the product. This is the basic role of distribution. Let us consider the nature of distribution by looking at a very simple example of how it works in relation to our everyday experiences.
