Difference between Marketing and Selling

The terms ‘marketing’ and ‘selling’ are related but not synonymous. ‘Marketing’ as stated earlier, emphasises on earning profits through customer satisfaction. In marketing, the focus is on the consumer’s needs and their satisfaction. ‘Selling’ on the other hand focuses on product and emphasises on selling what has been produced. In fact it is a small part of the wide process of marketing wherein emphasis is initially on promotion of goods and services and eventually on increase in sales volume.

Marketing has long term perspective of winning over consumer loyalty to the product by providing him maximum satisfaction. However, selling has short-term prospective of only increasing the sales volume. 

In marketing, the consumer is the on king whose needs must be satisfied. In selling, the product is supreme and the entire focus is its sale. Marketing starts before production and continues even after the exchange of goods and services has taken place. It is so because provision of after sale service is an important component of marketing process. Selling starts after the production and ends as soon as the exchange of goods and services has taken place.
