A business exists to supply a product or service to customers or clients in exchange for money or other forms of payment. . The business transaction involves coming up with a product or service and selling this to the customer, also known as the “market”, a place or location, present since ancient times in every town or city where goods (foodstuff, clothes, shoes, etc.) were bought and sold. . The term “market” has evolved in modern times into an important concept that gives meaning to the existence of a business (Schiffman & Kanuk, 2004).
Thus, one of the most important activities of a .business organization is “marketing”, which has become one of the most persistent conceptual problems of every business (Angelmar & Pinson, 1975, pp. 208-214). . Marketing has gone through many definitions, and for many years has been defined as the “process of planning and executing conception, pricing, promotion, and distribution of ideas, goods, and services to create exchanges that satisfy individual and organizational goals”. . This takes into account almost everyone, from the business that sells a product or service, its delivery channels, and all the way to the customer or the client.
