      Superlatives if pressed. Othahwise: transformation.

        I knew you where going to mention your boobs. I figured it was safer for me to mention big boobs in general.

        And then you could get the attention on your boobs.

          Here is a marketing trick all of its own.

            But it requires tact I would not draw attention to specific boobs even if they where in front of me. Unless the woman made it clear where my attention should be.

            Marketing is "relationship building with potential customers "

            You are right, of course...they are completely different skill sets.
            I have studied marketing less as a way to make money but more as a way to identify where most of my beliefs and habits come from. Almost everything we believe comes from some form of marketing. There is some from actual experience. But we even tend to filter experience through marketing beliefs.

      What's weird to me is that most great marketers have a knowledge, and some experience in selling.

      But salespeople almost never study marketing, or know anything about it.

      This doesn't include the business owners that are really entrepreneurial salespeople, that advertise to generate leads for themselves, and their reps. And almost none of them actually study marketing.

        You'll have heard the Peter Drucker saying that the idea of marketing is to make selling superfluous, but for solo operations or small businesses, the roles are necessarily conflated. With vacuum cleaners, for example, Dyson may market, but the store owner will do the selling. That store, in turn, will market itself against other other sweeper stores and outlets.

        I only bring this up because any definition would depend on whether the question posed in the thread assumes a distinction.
