The Creative Side of Business
Marketing is where creativity and business meet. It is an extremely versatile field, growing with the ever-changing digital world and adapting to the infinite channels connecting businesses with consumers.
Through Marketing efforts, organizations can directly communicate the strengths of their business in a way that consumers understand and care about. In an increasingly personal and real-time world, creating a strong and trusting connection with consumers is key.
What Is The Study of Marketing?
Marketing is the process of planning and executing the pricing, promotion, and distribution of ideas, goods and services to create an exchange that satisfies individual and organizational objectives. Marketing bridges the gap between consumers and an organization, helping companies understand what people want from their product or service.
Identifying the market and the target customer is fundamental to business success. Through marketing activities and systems, organizations can track and respond to changes in consumer preferences and understand marketing strategy, which is critical to remaining competitive in any industry.
