Differences Between Product and Service

Postby jazdmarkets » Thu Apr 02, 2009 8:15 am

Here we give the simple points of the differences between a product & Services of the following
• Services are intangible
• Service marketing involves building relationships and working together with clients.
• Service providers must be more selective when choosing prospects.
• Objections can be warnings rather than something to be overcome.
• Pricing differs with projects.

I can understand the other points, but what you do mean by this one?

I think that services are intangible is the biggest difference. Sure, if it's a consultation then there may be tangible things like notes, a transcript, the minutes, etc. But for the most part, you have to do extra to capture that, and in a way it makes it have a higher value in the client's eyes.

Products have specific prices whereas there is no limit as related to services .. It totally depends on the quality of service and deadlines met.
