"face palm"

Then you don't understand what is marketing.

You think marketing is calling a stranger and ask him/her to buy your products ?

Hard selling is the least effective method.

I hang up my phone on every single telemarketeer that called me.

My friend works as a free lance photographer and he keep getting new job every month.

Why ???

He makes lots of friends and whenever someone need a photographer, his friends will recommend him. He do lots of networking in his free time. When his client is a famous local celebrity, he make sure others knew about it. When someone wants a professional looking photo, everyone will think about him.

Marketing = networking
