Today marketing is known as an advanced blend of strategy and technology, however it hasn’t always been this way. Marketing as we know it began with humble beginnings of simply trying to sell goods and services.
Attempts to accomplish this may be as old as civilization itself. Some believe it started with trying to presents goods in a certain way for trading. The effort to develop persuasive communications for selling goods and services has been around since the times of ancient China and India. This activity may not have been recognized as a marketing business at the time, but it is where the idea for marketing started to develop.
