Marketing is the study of consumer needs in order to create, communicate, and deliver value to a company. Marketers oversee the process of segmentation, targeting, and positioning while integrating decisions about product, promotion, pricing, and placement or distribution. Marketers create value for a company’s chosen customers, which enables the company to attract and retain customers.
