Hence, that results in the ability of customers to engage to the company and values relationship between customers and companies (Armstrong and Kotler, 2013).
This research takes a look into the common way of marketing since for the case of small businesses; they would probably have very limited resources to use in marketing. Therefore, their marketing technique should be directed straight towards the potential customers which is also known as direct marketing. Also, for the business that would like to take a step further and gain more profit, it is recommended to use the creativity concept in marketing or creative marketing instead of just relying on direct marketing.
