Every individual is a business that needs marketing. Let’s think about the natural progression of a business person and compare it to the evolution of a expanding company. First, after high school the person needs find a college or university to attend. So, the person would research schools, find the best choice that fits his needs or wants (location, price, areas of study, etc.). Similarly, an expanding company with money to spend on branching out and expanding the company will research different options. They may choose to build up their business by branching out to new locations, acquiring another, similar business or offering new services or products. Either, way a company and an individual research chooses before progressing forward.
After researching a college, a business person (to be) picks classes that will help in his area of interest. From there, he markets himself to potential companies that are hiring interns. By interning he can learn hands-on how a company in his interest level operates. The interviewing process is all marketing, its selling your skills or qualifications. In the same way, an expanding company will choose the best way to expand and set up their operations. They make strategic plans to hire the right people at the right salaries, to establish the chain of command and locations for business that will help generate the most profit. During this time, business partners or other individuals in the decision making roles will argue and sell or market their points to get what they want or what they think the best decision for the company would be.
When a college student graduates, he again has to market himself to a company to work for. He needs to market himself while he has a job to keep it or move up the chain. He must prove that he is valuable to the company. And a business must use marketing and sales to attract customers and gain profit.
