If you find these possibilities intriguing, marketing may be for you.
What is Marketing?
The American Marketing Association defines marketing as “the activity, set of institutions and processes for creating, capturing, communicating, delivering and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners and society at large.” In simpler terms, marketing is what defines the business you are in, spells out who your customers are and gives them a reason to choose you.
