Mac s interpretation of marketing
Mac’s Interpretation of Marketing

“Whenever you are completing a sale, marketing is being able to say the right thing to a specific customer, based on their class or age. Being able to talk to a customer in a way they can relate to make the sale. It is also someone having the ability to choose the correct selling points for the correct customer at the correct time.”
