Marketing Always Change with Time but Sales Stays the Same

“Marketing always change with time but sales stays the same.” Above mentioned statement maybe refuted by many scholars and industry professionals but through my research and experience, I have come over this conclusion that Marketing falls under the umbrella of sales and to increase sales, marketing is used as a tool for it.

Marketing specifically arouses a need in customers related to that product through product specifications and benefits, and when that  is aroused or manipulated then the customer will move by himself and start the buying process, which from the other end is called selling process. Now, as the first part of selling process has been executed, that is conveying message through marketing, second step comes of selling in which sales people will be involved not marketing people. The job of sales people will be to turn those people into actual customers who become potential customer through marketing. Basically marketing is complimenting sales, and sales covers marketing.
