Marketing is the process of creating awareness of a product, service, person, place or idea, and communicating its unique value proposition with the objective of igniting a desired action by a specific target audience.

Marketing is the most important investment a business can make. Marketing communications tactics include websites, print advertising, brochures, social media, direct mail, press releases, radio commercials, billboards and email campaigns.

A well-executed, strategic marketing plan can help increase awareness, establish differentiation, convey value, fuel trial, drive sales, provide education, foster loyalty, inspire brand evangelists, generate buzz and referrals, build long term relationships and ultimately help a business sustain a competitive advantage.
