Abstract

In this article the marketing strategy continuum concept is presented and a number of marketing and management consequences are discussed. It demonstrates the need for a marketing concept which allows a variety of approaches to marketing. The nature of a relationship approach to marketing strategy is analysed in comparison with the nature of a transaction marketing strategy. Relationship marketing and transaction marketing are seen as strategy options at opposite ends of the continuum. Eight marketing and management implications of the two extreme strategies are examined.
