Marketing Wisdom in 50 Quotes

Someone defines marketing as art of selling, others suppose it to be the simple professional activity concentrated on communication of a product and a customer, the third point of view states marketing is a link between consumers’ requirements and their economic potential. As for me, all these definitions do not embrace the whole picture of marketing essence. That’s why I dare to choose the different interpretation – I wouldn’t be afraid to call it science. Yes, real modern branch of sciencemarketology.

You might argue the statement: first of all, this science does not have the scientists. Sure, I wouldn’t deny, the level is far from academic. However such informality of marketology brings a chance to get out of strict official science bounds and get quite progressive conclusions and results. It can be considered as a great advantage by someone. By me, for example. Moreover, some of specialists are real marketing gurus: their knowledge authority can with no problem give odds to many true-science researchers.
And you know what? I would gladly share personalized marketing (internet marketing in particular) wisdom with you: just check out the quotations from quality marketologists and other smart persons below.
