What Is Marketing

Marketingis the action or business of promoting and selling products or services, including market research and advertising.”

Basically is the process of achieving customer interest and satisfaction. Like the term, suggest, ”marketing” is the action of going to market, where you are the person selling your product/services. I will share with you my example:

Mr. ”X” is going to the market to SELL his organic, hand-picked, potatoes. The moment that he arrives at his stand, and he is starting to speak with potential customers in a way that will result for Mr. ”X” to sell all the potatoes…well… this I call it MARKETING.

Another important aspect of marketing is the famous ”4Ps”. This ”4Ps” are the foundation that everyone needs for their business…they are:

1. Product (specifications of your product)

2. Pricing (setting a price for the product)

3. Promotion (advertising, sales promotion…)

4. Place (how the product gets to the customer)

Next time you want to sell or promote something, is good to take into consideration this 4PS. By doing so, put’s you in the driver seat of your online business.



How To Use It

Is very SIMPLE…

For you to be a successful affiliate marketer, you need to know 3 very important aspects:

1. The Needs: something necessary for people

2. The Wants: something that is desired or wished by people

3. The Demands: when you take the ‘needs’ + the ‘wants’ and you can afford it.


I will give you an example:

Now, You are selling potatoes in the market. Mr. ”X” is arriving at the market (he has a NEED), and after 5 minutes he comes to your stand (he WANTS something), soon after he asks you for 1 kg of potatoes ( this is his DEMAND).

I’m sure by now, you have a lot of o business plans going through your head. If so, …I’m really HAPPY for you!

    I’ve always felt people overcomplicate marketing. The way you’ve outlined it, with the product, pricing, promoting, and placing, is all there is to it. I feel many of us like to design or create a product, upload it or spread throughout social media, and sit back thinking it’ll sell. It probably won’t, but if we take the time and effort to apply the principles of markeing, we will find that we’ll be selling a lot of awesome product.

      Hey Todd,

      Thank you for your feedback…and I agree with you 100%.

      Well, Todd most of the people they do the first steps and after they start to relax, when in my opinion, then is the moment to accelerate.
      Honestly, that’s why I wrote this post, just to show everyone my simple version to understand marketing.
      I am sure, more and more people will start to focus more on the basis of marketing, and they will be even more successful.

    Thank you, George, for presenting in such a simplistic way the principles of marketing! The 4 pillars of marketing seem fundamental to developing an affiliate marketing business. I would have never thought about that!I’m wondering though how can you use social media to promote the products a business offers?

      Hey Sebastian,

      Thank you as well for taking the time to read it…and I’m really happy that you find it easy to understand. That’s was my objective.
      Marketing is a vast subject, but I believe if you start with the 4 basics, then everything is gonna make more sense and is gonna be easy to apply.

      An answer to your question:
      Honestly, I would use social media based only one the 4 pillars of marketing. You need to have a PRODUCT, set a PRICE with a good promotion, and before you decide where to promote/sell it *( find the NEED, understand what people WANT, and see what are their DEMANDS)*…after all this, you are ready to find a PLACE to promote/sell.
      Personally, that’s how I would do it.
      See you in future posts.

      Best Wishes!
