It identifies the individuals that have influence over potential buyers, and orients marketing activities around these influencers. Influencers may be potential buyers themselves, or they may be third parties. These third parties exist either in the supply chain (retailers, manufacturers, etc.) or may be so-called value-added influencers (such as journalists, academics, industry analysts, professional advisers, and so on).
Better Marketing Through Dialogue
There are many ways you can interpret that phrase, ‘better marketing through dialogue’. They are all important in highlighting some of the truths in marketing more effectively.

Social Media Should Cost More Than PR
The question that everyone in the service business, sooner or later, must face. “How much do you charge for these services?” the clients always ask, usually before they have any idea of what I do or don’t do. Of course I always answer the question. Even if I have no idea what the client wants or need, I can always provide a broad range of prices for various services.

But I really don’t want to, and I am starting to come around to the necessity of declaring what I charge loudly and proudly, backed ... market research, surveys and trends

USDA Report next
We started Monday with our weekly export inspection report showing corn inspected for near term export was 41.9 million bushels up from 33.9 the week prior and strong four week average of 36 m.b.

The rule of the day was “pushing” large volumes of standardized commodities through the supply chain, which kept costs down. This system worked well as long as consumers sought basic staples for cooking meals in their own kitchens. Today, many consumers demand and have ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

I could not agree more that there is significant misunderstanding and, as a result, even cynicism towards marketing. I am thinking from the top of head but two themes repeatedly come to my mind when I consider this issue. Firstly, I feel that there is far too little reference paid by marketing professionals towards the academic pioneers of marketing. Without decades of effort and findings, both in academia and in industry, we would not have many of the essential and proven tools/methods that are at the heart of good, strategic marketing. Secondly, I fear the misunderstanding of marketing is so well established that it is here to ...
