KFNX BLOG: What’s Your Marketing Position?

“Because the purpose of business is to create a customer, the business enterprise has two–and only two–basic functions: marketing and innovation. Marketing and innovation produce results; all the rest are costs. Marketing is the distinguishing, unique function of the business.” – Peter Drucker

 “Good marketing makes the company look smart. Great marketing makes the customer feel smart.” – Joe Chernov

 

I had written a blog earlier this year about business education and how it is an ongoing process. Many successful executives are avid readers, and always want to learn more about how to run a business better. One of the books mentioned was the marketing classic, Positioning – The battle for Your Mind by Al Ries and Jack Trout (published in 1981).

THE HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN

Halloween, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve or All Saints’ Eve, is celebrated on the 31st of October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs and all the faithful departed. It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated in Britain and Ireland from Celtic harvest festivals which may have pagan roots and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween. Others believe that Halloween began as a Christian holiday. Halloween dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin meaning hallowed or holy evening.
