Discusses some of the features of small firms and emphasizes that business proprietors have a different approach to marketing than do marketing managers in large concerns. Examines some empirical evidence which showed about two‐thirds of small firms had a nonmarketing approach, almost a third were implicit marketers while very few were sophisticated marketers. Surmises that small firms require a high level of simplicity in their marketing approach if it is to be successful.
