According to wikipedia "Marketing is the process of performing market research, selling products and/or services to customers and promoting them via advertising to further enhance sales. It generates the strategy that underlies sales techniques, business communication, and business developments. It is an integrated process through which companies build strong customer relationships and creates value for their customers and for themselves".
In other words, excellent marketing equal excellent profits!!! Think about that, what is the difference between HP's processor and Dell's processor, or the difference between HP's video card and Vaio's video card, answer: none. They are made from the same suppliers, what make them difference is the quality of server they offer and how they market their product. You don't even need to produce anything to have a profitable business, a good idea and a good marketing strategy can give anyone a lot of money. Michael Dell is a good example of what I am saying but if you think it looks too unreachable, look this simple example and tell me if 130 thousand dollar is not enough reason to consider how powerful simple marketing strategies can be and how far you can go with a good idea, and of course never forget to use internet and all its facilities as one of your best allied. So let's start to think in a good a idea and implement marketing strategies, you can lose some money or you can get a lot regardless the age, or you think only 17 years old boy are capable of doing this????
Certainly this kid can happily says: "God bless iPhone 4".
