Marketing used to be just as simple as putting your goods and services on the market. The old school did marketing by coming to the marketplace with their products, displaying the best items they have, and then shout about how good their new product is, that it is on sale and that it is what you need, that’s why you have to buy it.
In our new world, businesses still shout out about details such as those only through giant billboards, enticing commercials on radio and TV, and engaging social media posts. All present their products in such a way that they will be able to persuade customers to buy.
Businesses, big or small, should learn to adapt to these fast-paced changes or they will die.
