Taken literally marketing is the practice of getting a product to market.

In the context of corn in the 1700s that would include:

  • Digging
  • Carts
  • Oxen
  • Yelling
  • Dealmaking
  • Growing things people want

Today most of those activities would be product, sales and operations.

Maybe they shouldn’t be?
