Marketing

All activities a company conducts in order to acquire and retain customers or clients. This may include basic courtesies like returning phone calls and taking meetings. It may also refer to a large, expensive campaign to encourage as many people as possible to buy a certain product. Marketing techniques in the latter instance include buying advertisements in the media, receiving endorsements from well-known experts and/or personalities, and generally aggressively pushing the product onto the target audience.

the managerial process of identifying customer requirements and satisfying them by providing customers with appropriate products in order to achieve the organization's objectives. Marketing goes beyond merely selling what the firm produces, but starts by identifying underlying consumer needs through MARKETING RESEARCH; generating products which satisfy these needs through NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT; promoting these products to consumers through various MARKETING MIX policies (pricing, advertising, sales promotion etc.); and physically distributing products to customers through DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS.
