If you’re like most people who are new to the world of online marketing, you’re probably tired of reading the same articles and reading the same advice.
With that in mind, I thought I’d share a few marketing articles that have been very helpful in my own marketing journey.
Marketing is the act of getting people to think about, buy, or do something. And that something can be anything from a product to an event to a blog post. Marketing is all about getting people to think about a good thing and make an action to actually perform it. The more people that think about, the more likely they are to do it.
If you’re an aspiring marketer, you’re going to need to get your marketing started. You’ll learn a lot about marketing, and if you’re lucky, you’ll get some help as you grow. I don’t think I can recommend enough marketing books (like the three I talk about below) because they’re like living, breathing marketing reference manuals. And they’re fun to read, even if you already know everything else about marketing.
There are a lot of great marketing books out there, but there are also some very useful references that will make you more successful. Below are three books that will help you get started with marketing.
If you’re in college, a great place to start is with Marketing For Dummies. It’s a great resource that goes over everything you need to know about marketing. It’s written by John McDonald (who you know from a few places), and it’s the ultimate marketing reference. It’s a quick read, but you can get really delirious about marketing and be productive in just a few days.
Another good resource is Entrepreneur’s Guide To Marketing. Its written by Kevin Sexton and its one of the most comprehensive marketing guides I’ve seen. Its a very broad guide, but it has a lot of great insights into running a successful marketing campaign.
I learned a lot from this book, and it is definitely worth your time.
I know I’m supposed to be an entrepreneur, but I’m still not one. I’m just not. So I thought I’d share with you guys a few things I learned.
I think the most important thing to understand about marketing is that it is a social activity. It takes time to build rapport with your customers, so you need a good way to keep them engaged. A good way to do this is to do things that they love (like movies) and then create a relationship with them. You can create these relationships by offering discounts to customers who buy from you, having fun events, and creating giveaways.
