Importance of sales
Sales & Nos. are like Oxygen for a company.Like humans, once you get breathing right then only can think of any other activities. Though other organs are equally needed to run a body but flow of Oxygen decide life & death ...this is so true for importance of Sales for an organization.

Branding is an important key for organization irrespective of industry type. While a good brand image help attract new buyers & retain existing one. Lesser experience then perceived Brand image can actually trigger a walkout for buyers. In commoditised world BRANDING is the only differentiators.
What suggestions would you like to give to the aspirants who want to make their career in Marketing only?
Anyone who wants to excel in marketing must show a great deal of understanding about different people and their different needs and hence EMPATHY is a great tool.He/she should be a great observer & learner from street. Just understand ADVERTISING in only a part of Marketing & think much beyond this.
Motivating Factor
One of the great motivation has been to excel in self eye and always setting a clear goal for me. Belongingness & respect from company, peers & bosses have also been great factor. Other factor is that my career has been helping achieve my personal & family goals as well.
