What is a Marketing major?

Marketing is like building a connection between the product and the target audience through different techniques and strategies. You need to study demographics in-depth and derive conclusions about which particular set of people to target. Then, you have to build some story through which people can relate and see whether they need such a product or not. In order words, it is a foundational skill that will acquaint you with various segments of a business like product development, advertising, promotions, public relations, strategy development, market research, sales, etc. 


Are marketing and advertising the same?

Many people use marketing and advertising interchangeably which is quite wrong. Well, marketing is a technique in which we brainstorm the product and generate all possible ideas to make people aware of it. From developing the product to delivering it to customers, it is a part of marketing. On the other hand, advertising is simply a paid sponsorship of your product through different channels where people can see it. As a whole, marketing is a process to create a market for the product and advertising is a process to launch it in that market. Advertising is a narrower concept and thus, a crucial component of marketing.
