"Every diversification decision is an entry decision." Discuss this statement in terms of its implications for the success of new business diversification. Your answer should address issues of competitive advantage, industry analysis and industry evolution. What is the motivation for diversification? What is the process to set up the diversification venture? What are the determinant factors that make diversification successful? And what are the rules to manage diversification? Many firm in mature stage find themselves have little room to grow, difficult to capture more market share and to earn more profit. The future of the established firms could be threatened by industry disruption as innovative start-ups entering the market. Those more capable incumbents would constantly adapt to the new rules of competition through both innovation and imitation. There are several reasons that would motivate firms to consider diversification. First, the volatile business could cause firms' earnings uncertain, or the changing business climate could cause firms less profitable than before. EMI Ltd. is a good example, emerged as the Electric and Musical Industries, and then redirected itself towards the development of sophisticated electronic devices during the war. After the war was over, EMI was struggling to make profits because its business was largely aligned with the

Internet Marketing Strategy Paper Introduction Marketing is a critical and complex business function with the simple goal to maximize revenue and sustain operations. The use of the Internet has become one of the main tools that can be applied to a business' marketing strategy. An organization's web site offers an unrivalled opportunity to measure significant aspects of marketing effectiveness since customer behavior can potentially be monitored in real-time and responded to accordingly. This paper will discuss product, place, and target market of Dell Computers, a "click and click" organization and then contrast with competitor differentiation discussion of Gateway, Inc., a "click and mortar" company. Dell Computers Strategy Place - Where will the business operate (i.e. geographic, virtual)? Place means "making the goods and services available in the right quantities and locations - when customers want them (Perreault and McCarthy 1999, p298). How does that apply to the Internet? The internet can be used as a distribution channel, allowing direct sales to customers. The supply chain is shortened as firms conduct direct transactions between suppliers and end users without the involvement of intermediaries. To date, high-tech companies have been the leaders in direct Internet sales, such as Dell Computers, who have sold and marketed from their website. As one of the leading

Building-up the department has been enormously exciting and satisfying and at the same time Public Relation itself has come of age academically-Anne Gregory Introduction Public Relations (PR) has become more and more important and established a respectable status in the business world even in the whole society. As organizations seek ways to increase profits, many turn to the field of public relations as a way of achieving their goals. In designing public relations/communication programs, there are many factors that public relations practitioners must consider in order to be successful in these markets. Thus, having a clear knowledge of what is PR really about and how is PR put into practice making effect tends to be significant. I. Definition of Public Relations Many PR practitioners put blind ideas in doing PR activities without really understand the meaning of PR. On one hand, the definition of Public Relations, according to Newsom & Kruckeberg (1996) is "about the reputation-the result of what you do, what you say and what others say about you." Compared to what Chen & Lang (2000) said, Public Relations is a set of communication skills to establish and maintain the good relationship between the organization and its publics, Newsom & Kruckeberg thought PR more as the cognitive result rather than a kind of communication process. On another hand, Macnamara (1996) and

Running head: MARKETING COMPARISON Marketing Comparison: International and Domestic Australia and the United States Arlene Smith University of Phoenix-Online Marketing Comparison: International and Domestic Australia and the United States As defined by the American Marketing Association,?Marketing is an organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders? (AMA, 2004, 2). The definition is applied to any product, business firm?in any targeted country. Marketing is the core of any business venture. Two basic functions are derived from marketing: 1) to retain and sustain present customer base, and 2) to develop new and/or improved customer relations. Focusing on these two aspects is the essence of marketing. The plan for why, whom, how, and when?surrounding the product, service, or idea? all develop and stem from marketing ideas and concepts. Marketing is a process, a plan developed to identify, foresee, and satisfy customer needs and desires?no matter the product or service, the business, or the country. Whether the market is a domestic or international venue, marketing activities are essentially the same; however, must be tailored to the unique attributes of the product and the country of target.

In this paper, I would like to present the overview of the credit cards industry and conduct the resource-based analysis for Citibank.
Introduction Citibank's Asia Pacific Consumer Bank has thought of launching credit card business as a way of growing future revenues. Card could prove to be excellent way to overcome distribution limitations imposed on Citibank, on the other hand, the management of New York questioned the wisdom of issuing cards in the markets. Now Citibank Asia Pacific Consumer Bank has to establish plausible strategies for issuing cards such as positioning, pricing and how to launch in Asia Pacific. In this paper, I would like to present the overview of the credit cards industry and conduct the resource-based analysis for Citibank. Finally I will present recommendations for Citibank about issuing credit cards in Asia Pacific. Industry Analysis (See Exhibit 1) Barriers to Entry: Barriers to entry into credit card business by new competitors are extremely low. Most local banks in each country have relationship with Visa and Masters and can easily issue their Visa and Master. Also local financial institutes can issue Visa and Master as well. Most of them have already had local infrastructure to manage credit card business and can use Visa/Master's network as well. However their target customers belong to below middle class, which is different segment from those of Citibank. Rivalry among Existing Competitors: The number of credit card brands are limited: American Express (Amex),
