Levitt [17] in his classic Marketing Myopia emphasized the need for farsighted marketing for firm’s growth. He remarked that most businesses suffer from myopia when they fail to ask themselves a question, what business are we in? Levitt suggested that firm must learn to think of itself not as producing goods or services, but as producing followers i.e. the customers/clients.
