Marketing What Is It, Really?

By Katie Marcus Published 12/31/1969 | Marketing
Marketing has the objective of trying to create attention to your business. Nevertheless, the marketing process has more than one purpose.

In addition to gaining the interest of your target clients, marketing also has the capacity to increase the sales and profits. Through effective marketing, any business owner can communicate and inform the target clients of what they have to offer, and convince them to finally purchase. This then results to an increase in sales and profits to the company.

However, marketing does not just stop there. It is not just about market research and getting to know your target clients, getting their attention, making a sale, or even successfully launching your promotional campaign such as your brochure printing. Again, it does not stop there. It is a long-term process that you have to nurture and maintain consistently.

What do I mean by this? Let us think of it as a personal relationship with a loved one. In order for us to maintain a good relationship, we need to work on it. We have to constantly communicate with the other person so that we do not lose touch. Communication simply makes it easy for us to be right on track and to remain connected with the other person. When we do not give proper attention to the relationship, we simply drift apart. Hence, the relationship may not be as meaningful as before.

It is the same with marketing. In order for you to remain connected with your target market, you need to be constantly in touch with them. You become responsible in managing and maintaining your campaigns to make sure that everything is on track. Without these things, your efforts would remain useless, no matter how outstanding or excellent your campaigns such as your print brochures. You simply become disconnected, leaving your clients and prospects indifferent to your efforts.

Furthermore, you need to be well prepared to implement each of the marketing strategy you have. It is great if all the strategies we launch would make our target clients less suspicious of the motives. We all know that an ad would always have an underlying motive, and that is to sell. Hence, all consumers will be expecting to find a marketing campaign to offer something that they need and value.

They would want anything they are going to purchase to be worth what they paid for. It is therefore very important that we reflect that in our marketing campaigns. Your brochure prints for example should be able to show a business that is valuable to the target audience. As a result, sales would increase and profits will definitely go upwards.

Being viable therefore rests on the marketing strategy we have. Being effective means that you are able to provide your target clients with whatever product or service they are looking for. Marketing is not just about letting them know who you are, what you can do, why you are doing it and what you have for them. It is also about letting them know that we are building a relationship with them to last for a long time.
