In the present day world ‘marketing’ is all pervasive. We are exposed to marketing of products, services and ideas almost every day. The study of marketing is very interesting in the sense that every body of us have performed marketing activities in one form or other. For example, during college days, working part time at a fast food restaurant to help fund one’s own education or persuading parents to buy a new music system. When a sales person engaged in selling a T.V., a doctor treats a patient or the district administration asks its people to get their vehicles checked for pollution, everybody is marketing something to the target audience. Marketing is essentially about marshalling all the resources of an organisation to meet the needs of the consumers on whom the entire organisation depends. Although each of these examples are different, they all have something in common; they consist a variety of marketing activities. Many definitions have emerged to describe marketing activities.
