What actually IS Marketing? The truth unveiled

The world of Marketing can be a mindfield for many, but it needn’t be so.

Simply, marketing is about the customer. Marketing needs planning and tailoring to your business, your market and your customers.

Marketing can be misunderstood. I am here to unveil the truth.

The biggest myth to unveil is that marketing can be adhoc. The truth is that marketing must be done consistently and regularly. It is not a quick fix or a magic wand.

So, what is marketing?

I asked this question on social media and here are the main words that came up:

Promoting

Brand

Product

What people want and offering it to them

Price

Packaging, pricing, positioning and promoting something in a way that makes enough people want to buy it

Finding new customers

Media

 

There are 6 main forms that marketing professionals will quote for

promotion:

Advertising

Personal Selling

Direct Mail/Email marketing

Online marketing

Sales promotion

PR/publicity
