According to the text, marketing is much more than selling or advertising . Marketing involves an attempt to anticipate customer or client needs . Macro-marketing focuses on the objectives of society . Firms that specialize in providing marketing functions other than buying and selling are collaborators . Responsibility for performing marketing functions can be shifted and shared, but usually no function can be completely eliminated . A company that is most likely to be in the marketing company era would have this statement : “Our long range plan—developed by our marketing manager—is to expand so that we can profitably meet the long-term needs of our customers.” The marketing concept is when all of a firm’s activities and resources should be organized to satisfy the needs of its customers—at a profit. The difference between “production orientation” and “marketing orientation” is best explained as guided by what customers need and what the firm can deliver at a profit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
