24. Peter Drucker
“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.”

28. Case: Volkswagen
• The number of negative tweets involving Volkswagen jumped to 16,070
between Sept. 18-21, compared with just 766 negative tweets in the four days
before Sept. 18, according to Amobee Brand Intelligence, a global marketing
technology company that monitors digital content across more than 600,000
• The emissions issue affects the Volkswagen-owned Audi A3 vehicle. But
consumers appear to be giving the Audi brand a pass so far on social
media, according to Amobee.
• Audi's negative tweet sentiment was 8% negative Sept. 18-21, compared with 9% negative Sept. 14-17. Even though
some Audi vehicles use the technology in question, the issue is "primarily being associated by the digital audience with
the parent company," according to Amobee.
