The Difference Between Sales and Marketing

I’m often asked what the difference between sales and marketing is. They seem to be the same thing, but they’re not. Marketing is putting yourself out there and telling people what you do and what you sell. Sales is the actual process of interacting with people who respond to your marketing and following through with them from the first contact to the final sale. You need both, although you can survive better on being a better sales person rather than a great marketer. If you can’t close a sale once you have a client, you won’t pay many bills or stay in business long!
