In terms of reading material. For the games world specifically
Jessica and Bridgette's fine book contains sections on marketing:

  Developing Online Games: Insiders Guide, Jessica Mulligan,
  Bridgette Petrovsky, Bridgette Patrovsky, Prentice Hall PTR.

Though as someone who's day job has been marketing on and off for
the last 10 years or so, I have to say that a good grounding in the
basics will go a very very long way whatever industry sector you
happen to be working in.

IMHO the finest text book on marketing is 'Kotler':

  Marketing Management: Millennium Edition (10th Edition)
  (Hardcover) by Philip Kotler

Hmm, maybe MUD-DEV needs a mutant off shoot MUD-SELL for discussions
of marketing stuff.
