2. Market Development:
It consists of selling existing products, to new customers in related market areas by adding different channels of distribution or by changing the content of advertising or the promotional media.
3. Product Development:
It involves substantial modification of existing products or creation of new but related items that can be marketed to current customers through established channels.
