The fundamentals of marketing
Marketing is the only thing that gives you an instant ROI. By doing proper marketing you can not just sell your product but also can build the trust of the audience which will be proved as the biggest asset for your company.
Basically, marketing is not creativity, it’s a process of successfully applying the laws of marketing. Marketing is a way by which you can communicate with your customer.
Marketing can be simply defined as:
The process of communicating with the right person about the right thing at the right time and right place.
It is also about keeping your existing customers happy by continuously communicating with them so that they will be your loyal customers for life.
The real marketing starts before your product is built. You need to do market research before launching the product in the market. If you are launching the right product for the right group of customers, the product can sell itself.
The aim of marketing is to know and understand your customer so well, that the product and service fit him and sell itself. The aim of marketing is to make selling superfluous.
- Peter Drucker
Marketing is the game of perception and the product is the game of reality.
Never let your marketing become more important than the product.
When you make marketing more important than the quality of the product, at the end of the day the product comes out as a failure.
you just need marketing to kickstart your company. After that, great products can sell themselves.
Advertising is not marketing. Advertising it’s just a component of marketing
The importance of communication skills
Good marketing is all about good communication.
Whatever your channel is (spoken or Written) communication is a thing that matters a lot. Good communication is when you catch the vibe of your audience and communicate with them in their language.
A good communicator joins the conversation going on in the mind of their audience.
If you can predict what is going on in the mind of your audience, you can pick the things that are in their mind and communicate to them so your audience will relate with you and easily get your point.
Write as you talk.
When you are communicating with your audience in the written form, write like you are talking with them face to face. People don’t like to read something which is complicated to understand. They can easily get the points which are written in the simple form. By keeping your language easy you can communicate with more audience.
