Entrepreneurial marketing: a strategy for the twenty-ﬁrst century? Sussie C. Morrish
College of Business and Economics, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand Abstract
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present the author’s view of the role of entrepreneurial marketing (EM) as a strategy to address the dynamic marketing environment of recent times. Design/methodology/approach – The author reﬂects on some signiﬁcant marketing changes and provides some contemporary example of companies that have successfully adopted EM approaches and challenged traditional marketing wisdom. Findings – EM is best conceived not as a nexus between marketing and entrepreneurship, but as an augmented process, where both the entrepreneur and the customer are the core actors, co-creating value within the marketing environment. Originality/value – While this is an opinion piece, the paper provides evidence of how EM can be adopted and applied by entrepreneurial ﬁrms and challenges marketers to create and control their own-marketing environment.
