Statistical analysis Economy When economic growth has progressed positively, leading to the increasing demand for insurance for construction works and projects. This is a potential for insurance industry in general and non-life insurance in particular, including Bao Minh. Politics, law and society In recent years, insurance institutions have become more and more complete, joining insurance has become mandatory for some types, such as compulsory civil liability insurance of investors, compulsory civil liability insurance of motor vehicle owners when participating in traffic, compulsory fire and explosion insurance for buildings and constructions ... As a result, Bao Minh's insurance mayor has an opportunity to increase. Technology In addition to the BEST and SAP management systems, hardware equipment has also been developed to meet the use of information technology for contract management, synchronous financial management from member companies. to the Corporation. This helps the Board of Management, the Boards at the headquarters to immediately report business, from which there is close guidance to the operations of the member unit. In the past time, Bao Minh has launched an online sales channel and applied social networking platform (digital platform) to reach customers relatively successfully. Enterprise The issue of corporate governance was focused on by Bao Minh right after being separated into an independent institution. Because corporate governance has a direct and multifaceted impact on the marketing mix application. This work is closely linked with each stage of planning, implementation, leadership and control, from the Corporation level to the member unit level. In particular, management issues among the professional departments are coordinated, from the stage of exploitation to the stage of evaluation, compensation and payment. 16 Customer Recognizing the impact of customers on the application of marketing mix, Bao Minh is always seeking ways to meet the insurance needs of customers. Bao Minh constantly endeavors to apply modern technologies in information management and customer care, while consolidating the organizational structure to provide the highest quality of service, in the shortest time. Bao Minh is currently ranked third in the market, numbering over 80,000 customers. Risk management Bao Minh has built a risk management system to detect and assess the risks they face. Develop acceptable risk control policies and procedures. The risk management system is periodically evaluated so that the company can best identify risks and find solutions.

Exploratory factor analysis + Testing the suitability of the EFA + Correlate testing of observed variables in representative measurements + Test the interpretation level of observed variables 17 3.4. General assessment 3.4.1. Successes The achievements in marketing mix application of Bao Minh are reflected through the effectiveness of applying marketing mix in the period of 2015-2019, as follows: Firstly, occupy a high position in the non-life insurance market. Secondly, increase the number of customers. Thirdly, increase the rate of return. Fourthly, increase sales. Fifthly, the return on advertising costs (ROAS) is high. Sixthly, upgrade management process. And seventhly, Bao Minh is increasingly aware of the role of customers in business operations, without customers, there is no business. 3.4.2. Limitations and reasons The limitations Besides the achievements in marketing mix application as mentioned above, there are also many shortcomings that Bao Minh has to face. Firstly, human resources: the compliance with regulations from the exploitation stage to the stage of loss assessment, compensation approval, compensation payment has not yet complied with the regulations of the business, causing complaints from customer. The second is about process implementation: innovation and process implementation are sometimes subjective and not really scientific. Therefore, it is necessary to innovate regularly to meet and adapt to the market, thus retaining customers, ensuring stable revenue and growth. Thirdly about products: due to increasing competition in the market, the number of non-life insurance companies increases with increasingly diverse insurance products. Therefore, if not changed or invested in researching new products, Bao Minh will be lagged, insurance products will be outdated, and customers will abandon Bao Minh to go to other insurance companies. Fourthly about distribution channels: the widespread expansion of non- selective distribution channels does not bring business efficiency. Low revenue will cause business costs to increase, which affects the business efficiency of Bao Minh. 18 Fifthly about valuation: the reduction of fees should determine the appropriate reduction, avoid the race to lower fees, high discounts, only bring increased revenue but the high total cost makes Bao Minh's financial situation not improved. Good and low solvency. Sixthly on promotion: the maintenance of annual advertising has not been implemented regularly, lacking in planning and comprehensiveness, which will lead to the efficiency of advertising activities is not high and wasteful. Various forms of promotion have not yet been taken seriously. And the seventhly of facilities and facilities: although this work has been improved but still has not met the business requirements. Reasons Bao Minh has spent 25 years operating and focused on applying marketing mix in business but in reality Bao Minh has not yet built an appropriate marketing strategy. Marketing unit of the newly established unit, this board has announced the company's business strategy, where marketing is mentioned but not yet the reach of a practical marketing strategy. Therefore, the marketing information system has not been completed, especially the information about customers and competitors is still lacking and not tim
