Marketing is advertising a product you want to sell. The market is who you want to sell it to. Let's say you have a new product. A soda that gives you energy but is healthy would be a good example. You will create a marketing plan to tell people about your soda. Who do you want to tell? Students would probably want to know about it. The students are your market. How you will talk to them is marketing.
