It is hard for many to believe, but when compared to economics, production and operations, accounting and other business areas, marketing is a relatively young discipline having emerged in the early 1900s. Prior to this time most issues that are now commonly associated with marketing were either assumed to fall within basic concepts of economics (e.g., price setting was viewed as a simple supply/demand issue), advertising (well developed by 1900), or in most cases, simply not yet explored (e.g., customer purchase behavior, importance of distribution partners).

Led by marketing scholars from several major universities, the development of marketing was in large part motivated by the need to dissect in greater detail relationships and behaviors that existed between sellers and buyers. In particular, the study of marketing led sellers to recognize that adopting certain strategies and tactics could significantly benefit the seller/buyer relationship. In the old days of marketing (before the

    why marketing is so important

    Marketing is one of the most important things a business can do. Not only does marketing build brand awareness but it can also increase sales, grow businesses and engage customers. There are so many core business functions that stem from a good marketing plan that any SMB would be silly not to give it a shot.

    Let’s take a look at 6 key reasons why marketing is so important for any modern business.

    1. It informs:
      On a base level, marketing is useful for customer education. Sure, you know the ins-and-outs of your product but do your consumers? In order to buy into a product, your audience needs to have a solid understanding of what it does and how it works. According to Creativs, marketing is the most effective way to communicate your value proposition to your customers in a fun and interesting way. If consumer education is on your priority

    What is Marketing?

    Is it true that every time people attempt to satisfy their needs by means of an exchange, marketing is involved? Or

    is it false? I once posed this question to a group of marketing students. Their answers were as varied and

    entertaining as a circus. The conversations that flowed from this made me to do a rethink about what marketing

    really is.

    What is marketing? Several authors have defined marketing in various ways. The American Marketing Association

    defines marketing as the process of planning and executing the conception, pricing, promotion and distribution of

    ideas, goods and services to create exchanges that satisfy individual and organisational goals. Cronje, et al

    (2007:283) define marketing as consisting of management tasks and decisions directed at successfully

    Technology is altering business in obvious ways – and in some not-so-obvious ways. Session after session at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas made that abundantly clear. Here are five examples from CES 2016 of how technology is continuing its transformation of marketing in unanticipated ways:

    Technology Put the Clothes Back on Women in Playboy

    It’s hardly a secret that one of the impacts of the Internet is a proliferation of digital pornography, much of it free. In “Y&R Gamechangers CES Breakfast” in the LinkedIn Lounge, Playboy executives explained that this change enabled by technology was one factor that put Playboy’s business model under stress. The brand, which has combined high quality writing with photography of nude women since 1953, recently announced that it would no longer publish the nude photos. Instead, Playboy, which has published writers who included Ray Bradbury and Joseph Heller and featured interviews with

    Things have changed in the decades since Peter Drucker asserted that “the aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him and sells itself.”

    While that underlying sentiment remains true, the methods for understanding and reaching customers have transformed dramatically with the advents of digital media and the internet. With so much competition, so much content, and so much noise, no product or service is going to sell itself.

    Building an effective pipeline requires increasingly cohesive efforts between sales and marketing. Forward-thinking companies are bridging these previously siloed departments, creating a unified and streamlined approach to uncovering, nurturing, and converting leads.

    The 101 quotes below provide pearls of wisdom from some of the brightest minds to contemplate this ever-evolving dynamic. You will find classic remarks that remain relevant, as well as paradigm-shifting nuggets from today’s top thought leaders.

    There are over 30 million Pages on LinkedIn. If yours isn’t one of them, you’re missing opportunities to get your content in front of the audience that matters most to your business. Plain and simple.

    If you’re just getting started with your Page, or are a content powerhouse team of 1, you might not feel like you have enough content to post 3-4 times a day, but the truth is you likely have the content sitting right in front of you – it’s on your company website, your blog, third party articles and more!

    Different posts clearly have different objectives. If your goal is lead generation your update may link to a landing page for a gated eBook or whitepaper. If your goal is brand awareness your post might link to your company website or perhaps you’ll share a blog post announcing a new product or feature enhancement. If it’s
