Despite what many might think, Marketing is well known across hundreds of nations all over the world. Marketing has been around for several centuries and has a very important meaning in the lives of many. It would be safe to assume that Marketing is going to be around for a long time and have an enormous impact on the lives of many people.test for introduce3 Social & Cultural Factors Marketing has a large role in American Culture. Many people can often be seen taking part in activities associated with Marketing. This is partly because people of most ages can be involved and families are brought together by this. Generally a person who displays their dislike for Marketing may be considered an outcast. Economic Factors It is not common practice to associate economics with Marketing. Generally, Marketing would be thought to have no effect on our economic situation, but there are in fact some effects. The sales industry associated with Marketing is actually a 2.3 billion dollar a year industry and growing each year. The industry employs nearly 150,000 people in the United States alone. It would be safe to say that Marketing play an important role in American economics and shouldn't be taken for granted. Environmental Factors After a three month long research project, I've been able to conclude that Marketing doesn't negatively effect the environment at all. A Marketing did not seem to result in waste products and couldn't be found in forests, jungles, rivers, lakes, oceans, etc... In fact, Marketing produced some positive effects on our sweet little nature. Political Factors Oh does Marketing ever influence politics. Last year 5 candidates running for some sort of position used Marketing as the primary topic of their campaign. A person might think Marketing would be a bad topic to lead a campaign with, but in fact with the social and environmental impact is has, this topic was able to gain a great number of followers. These 5 candidates went 4 for 5 on winning their positions. Conclusion Marketing seem to be a much more important idea that most give credit for. Next time you see or think of Marketing, think about what you just read and realize what is really going on. It is likely you under valued Marketing before, but will now start to give the credited needed and deserved. The subject of Marketing is a controversial issue. At one stage or another, every man woman or child will be faced with the issue of Marketing. While it is becoming a hot topic for debate, it is important to remember that ‘what goes up must come down.’ Inevitably Marketing is often misunderstood by the easily lead, who just don't like that sort of thing. Keeping all of this in mind, in this essay I will examine the major issues. Social Factors While some scholars have claimed that there is no such thing as society, this is rubbish. When Thucictholous said 'people only know one thing' [1] he must have been referning to Marketing. A society without Marketing is like a society without knowledge, in that it raises the question 'why?' Did I mention how lovely Marketing is? Society is powered by peer pressure, one of the most powerful forces in the world. As long as peer pressure uses its power for good, Marketing will have its place in society. Economic Fact
