You must have a market in order to sell. Sold! That opening phrase will is self-explanatory, but I would like to go in-depth briefly. First, we will start with marketing. Marketing is creating innovative approaches to present products or services provided by companies or individuals. Examples of marketing are television ads, social media posts, flyers, business cards, newspapers, billboards, and even direct salesmen and saleswomen.

Marketing, in elementary terms, is bringing awareness to potential customers. But isn’t that sales? Sort of, let me explain. Without a product or service being marketed, it will rarely be known or seen consistently. If so, then there will be little to no sales. So what are sales?

Sales, in elementary terms, are turning potential consumers into buyers and shifting viewership to profit. To define a sale, a sale is exchanging a product or service for monetary value. But you cannot sell anything without marketing. You can not market anything if you have nothing to sell. But you can always sell yourself. No… not like that. You guys know what I mean. It’s simple but not easy. Until it gets too easy. So thus far, find a market, create a product or service you want to sell, and develop a strategy. I’ll lace you up in the following article. It may be a wait but don’t trip. Sold!
