Marketing is not just another term you read about in the books. It is an essence of how you present yourself to the world. Being a marketer is more than just being able to drive the sales for the organisation, it is also about creating a happier environment within it. For me, marketing is a term that one can associate with their daily life. Humans, being the social creatures we are, constantly seek acceptance from our peers - branding through the talents we have, seeking proper channels for communication, developing partnerships by lending a helping hand, maintaining this relationship through timely and continuous follow-ups. This quality being naturally ingrained in us, becomes one of our most efficient abilities. Whether we choose to put it to use or not, is a choice we all make.
