Marketing aims to know and understand the customer so well that the product or service fits him and sell itself. The aim of marketing is to make selling superfluous. 

— Peter Drucker. 

The law of marketing is based on science, not creativity. The product can not be sold just by bringing creativity. To generate needs and to make products useful for mass selling, an understanding of science is required.

An Impressive aeroplane can be built, but it will never leave the ground if laws of physics are ignored especially gravity.

— Al Ries and Jack Trout. 

The need to understand marketing in the first place

And almost anything can be replaced, any skill or profession according to the myopic studies, artificial intelligence in the coming future. But AI can’t replace marketing.

The importance of communication skill

Marketing is all about communication, and if the product is good and well communicated, helping customers in fulfilling their needs, the product will be sold itself.

Example- Who on earth doesn’t love to eat pizza, everyone loves eating it, it tastes good, right. but it’s unhealthy food, and it’s made of flour and the ingredients aren’t taken well for health. But what if you bring a change in the recipe and replace the flour with some nutritious grain flour that adds and enhances the nutritional value.

Think about it, with biological reasoning if you are able to communicate well with a chef or a producing company, your idea and product solution is sold.

“Good communication is not about writing sophisticated English.”
