Marketing Management: "What is Marketing?"

Can you help me get started with this assignment?

Problem:" What is Marketing?" My answer needs to be at least 2,500-3,000 words and should incorporate key terms from the text and online materials, as well as key concepts of the marketing process, strategic planning, relationships, tools and scope.
