In business management, the term marketing is ever-present, but do you really understand what it means?
A Google search of the term “what is marketing”, may yield more confusion than answers. A survey of your staff will likely result in many different answers.
Sometimes it’s worth a pause in our busy day-to-day to get back to the basics.
So what is the basic meaning of marketing?
Bill Belew is a content marketing, social media trainer and professional speaker. In 2013 he taught a Marketing with Social Media MBA course at a university in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley.

But how frequently does your business need to publish content to really see a return in your marketing efforts?

Instead focus your marketing dollars on those who matter by creating an accurate buyer persona to guide your marketing decisions.
