Marketing as Relationship


The third millennium is the era of change. All has changed in this world – human thinking, business processes, and customer relationships. Still the main marketing instruments have somehow managed to remain the same. It is exactly because of this that we oftentimes hear that marketing no longer works or advertising no longer works. And that’s true – if we keep using the thinking patterns and marketing instruments of the last century.

The Marketing as Relationship Course offers not only a set of modern marketing instruments but also a global concept of relationships with customers in the digital era. This concept is a so called “marketing of ingenuousness” – the ideology developed by the author of the Course.
