At that time, it was the marketing activities of such a transaction where all goods produced or manufactured items could easily be sold. However, there were also some issues occurred that took precedence at that period in regards to how to market any goods produced. Because of this, the thoughts of management orientations at that time was mainly concerned with a company's production activities.

Therefore, there has been many variety of goods or services that can offer more benefits to fulfill the needs of consumers in today's community.
