I’m sitting here during my allotted ‘get well, but don’t overdo things’ mode, and squirming at the thought of how much I have let my own marketing to slip behind. Mmmm, I wonder why I hate sales so much…
OK, hate is a strong word. Dislike the connotations it brings, is more like it.
I’m much, much more comfortable and better at marketing – the kind of marketing that produces sales. I’d have to be; else I’d be out of a job. Yikes!
Thing is, I don’t think you can separate the two, inasmuch as they are both co-dependant. Without marketing, you don’t get as many sales. Without sales, you haven’t marketed enough. And without either, you don’t have a business. (Sorry, just had to slip in that one!)
Marketing, to me, is about bringing products, services, talents and other offerings to a marketplace where people buy. Sales involve the exchange of money or its equivalent for products or services.
See what I mean? 😉
What about yourself? Which do you concentrate most of your efforts and time? Which is your bugbear?
