While sales, marketing, and advertising are part of the same “system,” they are distinct in their aims:

ߦ Marketing: focuses on assessing the needs and wants of potential customers and then meeting those needs.

ߦ Sales: focuses on the attempt to motivate potential customers to purchase a product or service.

ߦ Advertising: focuses on communicating a specific message or set of messages to buyers.
