What's Social Marketing
          Born in the 1970s – Philips Kotler and Gerald Zaltman
          To sell ideas, attitudes and behaviours
          Kotler and Andreasen "Social marketing can be defined as differing from other areas of marketing only with respect to the objective of the marketer and his or her organisation. Social marketing seeks to influence social behaviour not to benefit the marketer, but to benefit the target audience and the general society."
          Most importantly, the whole reason for social marketing is just the reverse of why profit making companies use marketing!
        Profit making companies – Expand, grow, make itself indispensable
        Social Marketing – To make the organisation redundant is the goal

          Place – The way the product reaches the consumer. For a physical product it may be the distribution channels, but for intangible ideas it will be the way or manner in which the consumers get in touch with the product.
