What I know (and have learned through pursuit of my MBA, and from great marketers in our field) is that formally speaking — marketing is the overarching work we do.

Marketing incorporates several strategies, including:

  • Communications (which includes PR, as well as direct marketing, online communications, trade shows, etc.)
  • Service/product development (what, how packaged, how priced or funded)
  • Social marketing (to change behavior)

  • Message development
