Introduction

Business Studies Coursework Evaluate the possible ways to market a new product Introduction There are many possible ways that a new product may be marketed. With a product that will be sold world-wide, there is even more scope for ideas. For example, an ad campaign may be hugely successful in one country, but may not be at all successful in another. One such product is the Dyson Contrarotator. This is the latest product from Dyson, the company that is best known for their unique design of vacuum cleaner. They believe that they have improved on the more conventional design of washing machine. So what's wrong with the existing washing machine?

They are relying on its unique functions to suit certain materials to hopefully give them the edge against other brands. Miele Miele are mostly depending on low water consumption of the Novotronic W 1903 A to catapult it ahead of its better-known competitors. Its obscurity may be its downfall against other better-established brands. As you can see, the Dysons new machine has healthy competition in the marketplace, and success will hinge on the marketing campaign of each model. Obviously, the richest company will spend more money on their marketing strategy, but that may not as successful as a cheaper yet better-devised strategy. ...read more.
