GCSE BUSINESS STUDIES COURSEWORK EVALUATING THE SUCCESS OF THE MARKETING STRATAGY FOR MARS ICE CREAMS. My Aims for this Report In this report I will be focusing my attention on Mars Ice Cream Bar. I will investigate how they promote their product. I will do this by investigating how they advertise their product, and where, as well as looking at how they package their product and at the same time I will look at where they sell the Mars ice cream bar.

This particular advert was put out on the airs in June 2000 and is not running any more but it must have been good as it has stuck in my head all these months ahead of any others I have listened to recently. Mars does not use billboards as much as T.V. or radio. I have been told because not as many people pay attention to them nowadays, as there is so many around and they don't stand out to people as much as they did when they were first introduced.
