Marketing

Marketing is everywhere. It is broader than advertising, and it is different than sales, even though all three terms are often closely intertwined. Marketing is about creating demand for a product or service through different forms of advertising, which (hopefully) will translate into sales. Advertising, sales, and marketing work hand-in-hand. Defined simply, marketing is a strategy. It is used by organizations to determine how they position themselves in the industry, how they differentiate themselves from the competition, how they gain customers, and how they get brand recognition.

The basic marketing framework is made up of three C’s: (1) Customer – Who are an organization’s customers? What are they like? (2) Company – What kind of companies are organizations targeting? What industry are they in? (3) Competitor – How is an organization different from its competitors? What does an organization do differently than its rivals? The basic marketing framework is also made up of four P’s: (1) Product – What is it that an organization is selling? (2) Price – Does the organization provide low prices or high prices? Is it marketing to an audience that is able or willing to buy its product at the offered price? (3) Promotion – Is the organization getting its message out through radio, television, or print advertising, digital marketing, trade shows, etc.? (4) Place – Where and how is the organization getting its product distributed to the market?
