Ultimately we must separate our conceptualization of marketing and value. Marketing does not provide value – marketing is simply a way of communicating value. There are advantages in good marketing, but you cannot root your company in good marketing – your company has to be rooted in value creation. Marketing can provide perceived value in brand creation through emotional ties. However, perceived value is categorically different from real value in virtually all cases.

Marketing is not substantive value.
