Q: What's the difference between marketing and sales, and how can I integrate the two to build

my business?

A: This is an important question, because a carefully crafted combination of sales and marketing

is vital for successful business growth. "Selling" or making sales consists of interpersonal
interaction-the one-on-one meetings, telephone calls and networking-that you engage in with
prospects and customers. The term "marketing" encompasses programs businesses use to reach
and persuade prospects, including advertising, public relations, direct mail and more. You'll often
see the terms used incorrectly, such as when a business advertises for a marketing professional
but is really looking for someone to make telephone calls, meet with prospects and close sales .

A sale is the exchange of a commodity for money or service in return for money or the action
of selling something.[1]

The seller or the provider of the goods or services completes a sale in response to an acquisition,
an appropriation[2] or a request. There is a passing of title (property or ownership) of the item, and the
settlement of a price. A seller agrees upon a price which he willingly gives ownership of the item. The seller,
not the purchaser generally executes the sale and it is completed prior to the obligation of payment. A
person who sells goods or service on behalf of the seller is known as salesman or saleswoman.

Marketing is communicating the value of a product, service or brand to customers, for the purpose of
promoting or selling that product, service, or brand.

Marketing techniques include choosing target markets through market analysis and market segmentation, as
well as understanding consumer behavior and advertising a product's value to the customer.

From a societal point of view, marketing is the link between a society's material requirements and
its economic patterns of response.

Marketing satisfies these needs and wants through exchange processes and building long-term

Earthquake engineering is the scientific field concerned with protecting society, the natural and
the man-made environment from earthquakes by limiting the seismic risk to socio-economically
acceptable levels.[1] Traditionally, it has been narrowly defined as the study of the behavior of
structures and geo-structures subject to seismic loading, this considered as a subset of
both structural and geotechnical engineering. However, the tremendous costs experienced in
recent earthquakes have led to an expansion of its scope to encompass disciplines from the
wider field of civil engineering and from the social sciences, especially sociology, political science,
economics and finance.
