Careers of the Future: Study Marketing in Turkey!

What comes to your mind when we talk about careers of the future? Medical and technical jobs are top on the list for sure. However, we would like to shed some light on another field, which might not have popped into your mind at first. Today we will focus on a field gaining more importance each day in the business world: Marketing.

Marketing is often confused with selling. The most significant difference between these two concepts is that selling starts when the product/service is already there. Marketing starts way before that. So, what is marketing? Marketing is the art of creating genuine customer value. It is the art of helping your customers become better off. The marketer’s watchwords are quality, service, and value (Kotler, 2003). 

Marketing is an essential tool for the future because we live in a world where every organization’s competition is getting stiffer each day. This situation is also tough on consumers like us since it makes the decision-making process much harder. Think about the basic things you need to purchase for daily life. There are so many options for your simple need to buy a battery for your remote controller, for example. Which one is worth it? Which one will satisfy your needs? When there are millions of options, you might miss the product that will make you happy at the end of the day. This is the point where marketing comes in handy. Marketing helps you know more about the value and any additional information you may need about the product or service, in return helps you make the right choices for your needs.

Who Should Study Marketing?

Now that we talked a little bit about the importance of marketing, let’s talk about whether it’s a good fit for you.
