Apple was, and continues to be one of the most effective marketers in recent history. From the grand presentations by Steve Jobs to the brightly colored ads for the iPhone and iPod. The company uses simplicity to great effect, employing contrasting colors and sleek design to sell its products. Apple marketing is defined by three primary points of thinking, which are detailed below.


Apple strives to understand its customers more than any other company on the market. It does extensive testing internally for its products, testing for every day use cases and looking for ways to streamline their product design. Their products are generally thin, light and powerful.


Apple has a very limited number of tasks it focuses on in order to deliver amazing products. It largely lets application developers do most of the heavy lifting on the iPhone, but it takes great care in crafting its operating systems. Even programs like Pages are made with the user firmly in mind, streamlining methods to work and save one’s progress.


Apple products are perceived to be amazing. For a long time, “it just works” was a phrase that was thrown around to describe how people felt about them. They were viewed as devices that made computer usage fun and easy, elegant even. That perception is part of what cements the Apple brand into popular landscape. Apple works hard at cultivating the idea that PCs are complicated, and Apple computers are simple. Even though that is not always the case, Apple proves every day that perception is crucial to success.
