Misconception about Marketing
I believe there is a big misconception about marketing, and this became clear when I graduated from Uni and found a huge disparity between what I had been taught and the understanding in the business community.
This should not really have been a surprise, as before I retuned to studies, I had always aligned Marketing with Sales roles … and why I had always avoided them – It is clear that I am not a salesperson.
Whilst working in my 20’s I had been searching for a magical position that was back-end-of-the-business but focused on the customer. Honestly, the revelation when I heard my lecturer introduce the Marketing Module during the first week of Uni.
I have now learnt when talking to businesses to clarify whether they mean marketing or marketing communications – ie advertising, social media, email marketing etc. As Marketing is much more than (marketing communications) tactics.
Marketing is the entirety of the business from conception to grave.
Marketing communications might support the sales function, but Marketing determines why the business exists and who the customer is.

We would love introductions to any local business who would like to discuss marketing and strategy.
Although the adoption of video technology has made location less important. However there is nothing like meeting face to face. Getting to know the people, place and other physical evidence behind the business, amongst much more.
