What is the difference between consulting and marketing?

Though this is not a question asked much, we have had a few customers ask what the differences are. This is mainly because the way we separate main content on our website between consulting, online marketing, traditional marketing and design services.

As far as our website is concerned, we separated marketing and consulting to make it easier for customers to find what they are looking for.

Consulting is working with customers and providing information through informed discussion. We sit down with you, learn about your company and what your goals are, and help you formulate a marketing strategy for your business or organization.

Marketing has more to do with providing a service, such as tradeshow consulting, or sending out direct mail to your customers. We can consult with your company without visiting your office (though we often do visit with our clients when we need to). There is more participation with our marketing services, such as doing research, and attending tradeshows; these types of marketing services require more time at your place of business and have a more hands-on approach to marketing.
