    As a result of this change, corporations were vastly focused on theirs brands that consequently production became secondarily. As she states, manufacturers rather buy products and "brand" them2. On the other hand, Lasn also highlights the changes on the nowadays ways of American�s lives, yet due to the media environment shaping people�s lives, "living inside the post-modern spectacle has changed people3". Consequently, there has been a break up between the new society and nature. According to Lasn people follow their mediated selves and he also states " we have gone from living in a natural world to living in a manufactured one4".

We have listed the advantages and disadvantages of each method and their application for our product. Then we decided which one is better. The first method we chose is the cost-based one. It is simple to use and works by calculating the costs of the manufacturing of the product, distributed costs, research and development costs and by adding a certain percentage for the final price.

  7. Evaluate the benefits and difficulties for organisations utilising integrated marketing communications?

    Kitchen et al., (2004) even state "IMC is passing through a conjectural storm as to its meaning and purpose". There is a consensus of definitions that elude to the idea of synergy (Eagle and Kitchen, 2000; Fill, 2009; Pelsmacker et al., 2010; Pickton and Broderick, 2005; Torp 2009). Whilst academics are searching for a robust and well-defined definition, the logical conclusion of IMC is the idea of synergy, which does carry a weighted argument to a clear and purposeful outcome. The foundation of IMC should, in theory, be based upon a clear structure.

    for 2005 (Figure 6). From the expanded analysis in Figure 27, it is clear to see that Non-DFW sales have been trending up whereas DFW sales have been trending down over the last four years. In fact, 2004 had an increase in Non-DFW sales of 13.44% and a decline in DFW sales of 5.63% with respect to the previous year. These figures are hard to ignore, especially when 90% of the growing Non-DFW area sales are from DIY'ers, and Jones Blair only sees 70% of their sales in the Non-DFW area coming from DIY'ers (Figure 18).

  10. Discuss, with reference to current authors, what is meant by a marketing orientation and/or a marketing oriented company. Illustrate your answer with examples of products or brands of your choice.

    The product will vary depending on the target market i.e. the quality of a product will depend on who the target market is. Take Tesco for example, they offer their customers the choice of buying 'Tesco Value' foods which are a cheaper inferior good which act as alternative to branded normal goods. They are aimed at customers with a lower income and smaller budget. When designing a product or service a company must look to attract customers and try to offer something different, something that would make customers want to buy their goods as apposed to a similar company offering similar goods, they must try and find a unique selling point.

This states that some attitudes are near to the surface of the memory than others consequently influencing our decision on what to buy.

  12. The aim of this report is to provide details regarding the marketing rationale behind the television advertisement we produced.

    To achieve a postmodern approach we tried not to include a rational sequence to the scenes, common sense, monologues or discussions. On the other hand, we included brand presentation, a dynamic mission statement as well as bold, colourful pictures, motion, humour and fast-beat music. The latter four aim to create an excited mood to the consumer's psychology. All of the above showcase a modern sense of lifestyle and therefore target the appropriate market. During the commercial, a mixture of normal life and exaggerated, yet amusing, scenes are presented to show how our brand fits to various activities of different consumers.

    Price "Price" refers to what the consumer must do in order to obtain the social marketing product. This cost may be monetary, or it may instead require the consumer to give up intangibles, such as time or effort, or to risk embarrassment and disapproval. If the costs outweigh the benefits for an individual, the perceived value of the offering will be low and it will be unlikely to be adopted. However, if the benefits are perceived as greater than their costs, chances of trial and adoption of the product is much greater. Place "Place" describes the way that the product reaches the consumer.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • "Every diversification decision is an entry decision" - Discuss this statement in terms of its implications for the success of new business diversification.

    "In conclusion, every diversification decision is indeed an entry decision. The new ventures have to continuously and consistently demonstrate their executions on growth and innovations and build up barriers preventing competitors from imitating, and have to accumulate more competitive advantage while developing better dynamic capability during the course of industry evolution."

  • Look closely at the club 18-30, Superfamily and forever young brochure pages. Analyse how language, layout and other features are used to target specific audiences.

    "target audiences too. To conclude with I will be comparing the three adverts and how they differ from each other. The 'Club 18-30' adverts starts of with very clear chatty language, this appeals most to younger people as they are less mature and prone to using such slang language. The 'superfamily' advert is a much more formal approach using normal informative language about the range of services they can provide. Finally the forever young advert focuses more on the geographical features of the island to push forward its services. The layout of the adverts also differ, the club 18-30 advert is quite plain but uses sub-headings to structure its text. Superfamily uses small paragraphs and bullet points to clearly separate its factual information into suitable categories for all of the family to be able to read. Forever young has two paragraphs of information about the surroundings of its hotel, with the same idea as Superfamily to list the available resources that can be used at the hotel. By changing and altering the way the text is implemented to the reader we can change the type of target audience, by the type of language used. Companies use this depending on which type of audience they are trying to target ."

  • Home ownership is " a form of housing provision characterised by unevenness and inequality rather than homogeneity and uniformity of benefit and experience" Discuss

    "In conclusion it can be seen that homeownership does promote inequalities. Inequalities are created between homeowners, those who rent and those who live in council houses. There is unevenness within homeownership as it is seen as a status symbol. For instance a private home in Newlands in Glasgow is looked upon differently to one in Easterhouse. A house in London costs more than it would in Glasgow. You can pay a lot of money for a small house in London, and the same amount of money would get a much larger house in Scotland. This is an example of the unevenness throughout the private sector. There is also social exclusion for those who don't own their own houses, although the government is trying to combat this inequality. There are inequalities and unevenness throughout the housing market but also throughout the private sector itself. There is no homogeneity as is suggested by Forrest, Murie and Williams's only inequality. There is certainly no benefit of experience as more and more people are getting into mortgage arrears and having their homes repossessed because of money being lent out too eagerly. The "benefit of experience" would suggest that we learn from mistakes but just now it seems to be the opposite with still too few taking out insurance against repossession and mortgage arrears."
