Marketing as the Main Way to Help Connect Products with People

People sometimes talk about products so good they sell themselves. It’s a great dream. But it’s about as realistic as a perpetual motion machine. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about social engineering or physical engineering. The simple fact of the matter is that everything needs a bit of a push in order to gain momentum. 

With physical objects that comes from something like a jolt of electricity. Or it might even involve someone giving a literal push to get something moving. But when you’re selling something, that push needs to come from marketing. One can see good or bad in this fact. But whether one wants it to be different or not the truth is always the same. You can’t get a product to people without a solid marketing plan.

When marijuana started to become legal in some states a lot of people made that mistake. They assumed that something as in demand as cannabis wouldn’t need marketing. Those same people often assumed that people would come to them rather than the reverse. And if it was a total social vacuum that might be true. 

But those same people quickly discovered the truth.about marijuana marketing is far more complex than they assumed. Part of the difficulty comes from the fact that there are so many aspects to the plant. It’s not just something that people use recreationally. For example, many people with digestive issues find that it’s the only way that they can tolerate food. 

Other people want the various benefits found in the CBD based compounds within the substance. Others want very minor distortions in how they feel. Others want major distortions. Now imagine trying to market to people who want those distortions and cancer patients hoping to be able to finally keep food down again. And then add a whole variety of other hopes on top of it all. 

It’s pretty clear from this that one faces a difficult issue. And worse, the public often doesn’t really understand the issue. They come to it with various differences in their understanding of the basic science. And even if one does understand one part of the science than that doesn’t always translate to other important parts. Someone might understand the botany. But that doesn’t mean they’ll understand marijuana’s biological mechanisms of action within the human body. 

What’s the solution to all this? Basically, one needs marketing help. It’s just not something that’s simple enough for anyone to handle on their own. One needs to come at it with a specific set of skills that few people have. But groups of people, with marketing experience, can offer up that service. 

Once again, consider the earlier complexity around marijuana. Now imagine how well a skilled group of marketers could simplify matters. They understand the market because they work with it. They know how various demographics operate and how to market to them. And they also know how to judge the effectiveness of various marketing campaigns when the climate changes in any way. That knowledge and ability to adapt to a rapidly changing market make outside help a necessity.
