What Is the Different between Marketing and Selling?


Marketing and selling are related but differ greatly. Marketing plays a major role in creating new channels/clients and maintaining the existing channels and this contributes to more sales. Selling involves making more sales so as to increase the company's revenues. Despite the difference, the two functions are dependent on each other and therefore a firm should form a system where the two functions are carried out together.
