Marketing is a basic business function covering a wide range of activities. It includes studying markets, planning products, pricing them, promoting them, selling them, and then delivering these products to customers. People in wholesaling, retailing, advertising agencies, research firms and transportation companies are all working in the marketing area. Any firm which is reviewing its product policies needs marketers to identify the market, choose the products, find where they can be sold and decide on a price for them.
