News Service NEW American businessmen lost the knack of peddling their wares Is the disappearance of the resourceful Yankee trader partly respon sible for the nations lagging economic growth Some of the businessmans best friends think so Criticism of the selling effort American companies are putting out is ap pearing more and more fre quently in probusiness publica tions and is being voiced by top marketing authorities The charges Manage m e n t crimplains of the profit squeeze but does nothing to mitigate it Companies have lost the mer chant instinct Businessmen spend too much time feeling sorry for themselves and not enough time and money look ing for new products and new markets rniiny of tfs come from the giant corporations it is dis tressing that the same com panies produce so few innova tions in marketing says Theo dore Levitt consultant a nd member of the faculty of Harvards Graduate School of Business Administration They do things pretty much in the conventional way trying to outdo competitors by doing the same things competitors are doing only more so In fact nearly all the big marketing in novations of recent years have been made by small new com panics How do businessmen plead to the charge Not guilty with an explanation would be the con sensus of the key sales and marketing executives we asked Most agreed with Proctor Gamble Cos sales vice presi dent JSJanney who said We are certainly selling as vigor ously as we know how and theres plenty of evidence that our competitors are doing the same At the retail level according to T Ted Schlesinger presi dent of Allied Stores Corp selling is1 the crux of our prob lem I guess a lot of us are not selling hard enough The trouble is that we have to keep increas sales in order to maintain the profit ratio at the same level Marketing changes advocated by Prof Levitt and other critics are being made by a number of companies Gene L Bego general sales manager of the Industrial Products division of B F Goodrich Co said his division has just completed a toptobottom reorganization of its marketing setup Some of changes Re orientation of the field sales force the elimination of out modeled customer services and the institution of new ones the establishment of a distributors advisory council and the addi tion of staff people whose full time job will be long range market planning Customer1 complaints of indif ferent sales clerks shoddy merchandise poor seVvice and high prices are also holding down retail sales Some store executives are inclined to agree but again with an explana tion The basic reason for lagging others believe is that peoples desires are greater than their ability to pay prices and taxes are too high A stabilized cost structure and a tax revision are needed to
