In a world where people are gathered around social media and connected by internet platforms, marketing has become more relevant than ever, helping a company promote and sell products or services to consumers across national borders, natural barriers and even time zones.

Interested in Marketing?

At its core, marketing seeks to take a product or service, identify its ideal customers, and draw the customers’ attention to the product or service available (Twin, 2023)

Marketing refers to activities a company undertakes to promote the buying or selling of a product or service. Marketing includes advertising, selling, and delivering products to consumers or other businesses.

Professionals who work in a corporation’s marketing and promotion departments seek to get the attention of key potential audiences through advertising. Promotions are targeted to certain audiences and may involve celebrity endorsements, catchy phrases or slogans, memorable packaging or graphic designs, and overall media exposure.

Though traditional marketing is still prevalent, digital marketing now allows companies to engage in newsletter, social media, affiliate, and content marketing strategies. With great competition in markets arising from deregulation, technological change and globalisation, marketing professionals with a clear understanding of marketing, and the skills to take advantage of these developments, will have an edge over others.
