Modern Marketing

by the Staff of ACS Distance Learning

Modern Marketing eBook course online. Learn how to market your business online using sites such as facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, pinterest and wordpress. This book offers a great overview of marketing techniques, both past and present. It is a wonderful introduction to the world of e-commerce, providing useful background information and insights into modern marketing styles.

The aim of marketing is to create demand for a product or service, either by making people aware of its existence, or by making them feel they want or need the product. Whether one does this by sending out tweets and YouTube videos, printing posters, publishing articles on the product, or using a town crier - the desired goal is still the same.

Whilst the tools of modern marketing in no way resemble those used in the past, the core principals are similar.

There is a famous story about King Frederick II of Prussia, who enacted what these days might be dubbed “guerrilla marketing tactics”, in an attempt to ease the famine of 1774. King Frederick saw potatoes as a solution to the famine, however introducing them to the peasants did not go down well, given that not even the dogs would eat them. They refused to plant them in their fields and King Frederick II was forced to come up with another method of convincing people to consume them. Essentially he had to market them somehow and create desire in his “target market”.

The solution he implemented was to have a large field of potatoes planted and then heavily guarded. The guards, however, were ordered to look the other way when people came to steal the crops. Thus the potato was “re-branded” as something worth guarding and therefore worth having, worth stealing and ultimately worth eating.

The trick today, is working out how to take lessons from the past and implement them using modern marketing tools, which allow you to access a worldwide audience in a manner that more traditional methods and even traditional media cannot compete with.
