A lot of what we see, read and experience is marketing. In the real life, marketing is everywhere. We might not look at it as marketing, but in reality someone is getting paid for promoting products, services and news on tabloids and other forms of advertising. When you live in a city, it’s impossible to miss just how big marketing industry has become.
Online marketing isn’t much different. You still have to hire professionals, you still have to make investments and you probably need some good ideas to start with. Social media marketing, content marketing, product marketing, the list could go on forever. There is such huge variety of niches available these days, it’s overwhelming for a beginner to try and digest all of that information.
Trough trial and error, one is able to gain enough experience to kind of grasp the whole marketing industry and how it works. It took me a couple of years, but back then there wasn’t a lot of information available unlike now. Nowadays a single marketing blog can learn you all the tips and tricks you need to start selling, it wont cost you more than $100 to get started either.
The following quotes are from marketers who have created a name for themselves by either revealing a breakthrough trick to the community, or simply having an amazing history of testimonials from large companies that recruit only the best of the best.
