Please answer the following questions:

What is the product?

Who is the target market?

On what criteria is this market segmented?

How is the product packaged? Why?

 Background: Ethics are the standards of behavior by which conduct is judged. Standards that are legal may not always be ethical, and vice versa. An ethics violation offends a person’s sense of justice or fairness. Ethics basically constitute the unwritten rules developed to guide interactions. Every day we are exposed to different marketing ads and campaigns. Whether it is Flex Seal, Credit Carma, or a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicle commercial they all are trying to tell the consumer to buy their product.

Sometimes good ideas can go bad. The following document (linked HERE  Download HERE) explores ads that have been deemed unethical. The document includes ads from Pepsi, Bloomingdales, Fiat, and LifeLock.

After reviewing the document answer the following questions:

1. Please state which ad you found to most unethical to you? (If these Ads were ethical to you, please link and explain an ad you have seen that seems unethical).

2. What about the Ad did not come off right to the viewer?

3. If you were the marketing manager for the company, do you think these Ads could be salvaged?

*Include any relevant information you deem necessary to support your claim. Please be respectful of others opinions on views on these advertisements*

In your post please provide at least two APA references to support your answer (You can utilize the textbook). You can utilize the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.) website for the correct way to reference the articles used.

DQ2 Market Segmentation Application- The Hotel Industry

Prior to the completion of this discussion board post, please review:

Reading: Chapter 8 Segmenting and Target Marketing pg. 140

Chapter 8 Segmenting and Targeting Marketing PowerPoint Presentation  Download Chapter 8 Segmenting and Targeting Marketing PowerPoint Presentation

 Purpose: This activity will allow you and your group to utilize critical thinking to analyze the importance of market segmentation and the segments that would be suitable in an industry.

Objective: We will be focusing on creating a hotel that will meet the needs of its customers. This will be completed by utilizing demographics, psychographic, geographic, and behavioral segmentation approaches.

How to play the game:

Your instructor will divide our class into small groups of 2 to 4 members. Each group will get four cards "dealt" to them. These cards will display the following information:

Numbers on the cards will be the age of your customers- 2s=20s.

Each card will display a number so it may be beneficial to try and get similar ages or create an age range. For example, three 3s would be suitable for those in their thirties where one 3 and two 2s may indicate customers aged 20 to 30s.

Suit on each card will represent income-

            Diamonds- $30,000

            Hearts- $50,000

            Clubs- $70,000

            Spades- $100,000

If you have a mix of suits, then your hotel could work for different income levels.

Step 1: Take a few moments to choose one target market card that you do not want. (this can be for income or age) this step doesn’t have to be completed if you want to be inclusive in your concept.

Step 2: (Optional) each team can choose to acquire an additional card giving the team 4 total cards (after step 1). This can be completed at random or choose from a selection of cards that are face up. Remember, you want to make sure your market elements are compatible.

Step 3: Take the time to fully understand the market you have within your cards.

Step 4: You are now being asked to design a hotel. This will relate to the atmosphere of the hotel based on the information from the cards. You have two options below in the activity for steps 4 and 5 to brainstorm different hotel ideas for your target market. Make sure that the elements are suitable for the level of income in your segmentation.

Step 5: At the end of this activity you will be asked to present the target market and hotel ideas that your group created.

Activity for steps 4 and 5:

Utilize the following section to brainstorm and further explore your hotel segmentation. (You will be able to make two different types of hotels; we will then further explore these advertisements in future chapters.

Advertisement for (name of the hotel created): ______________________________

Demographics-

Age:

Income amount:

Psychographics: Based on your cards what kind of interests, values, and personalities would you expect the people who will stay at your hotel to have?

Geographic: Would it make sense to segment this hotel geographically? (why or why not)?

Behavioral: What are some behavioral elements that would be present in this scenario?  (Think of decision-making patterns for purchase, consumption, lifestyle, and usage).

Create an advertisement that encompasses your hotel (1 to 3 sentences):

DQ1 Business Analysis for NIKE

Prior to the completion of this discussion board post, please review:

Reading Chapter 11 Developing and Managing Products pg. 194

Chapter 11 Developing and Managing Products PowerPoint Presentation Download Chapter 11 Developing and Managing Products PowerPoint Presentation

 Background: Business analysis is a research discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems. Solutions often include a software-systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development. Business analysis is the second stage of the screening process, where preliminary figures for demand, cost, sales, and profitability are calculated. The newness of the product, the size of the market, and the nature of the competition all affect the accuracy of revenue projections. In an established market, industry estimates of total market size are available. Forecasting market share for a new entry in a new, fragmented, or relatively small niche is a bigger challenge than for an established market.

Application: You are a marketing manager for Nike. Your department has come up with the idea of manufacturing a baseball bat for use in colleges around the nation. Assuming you are in the business analysis stage, answer these common questions that are asked  in the business analysis stage include:

?    What is the likely demand for the product?

?    What impact would the new product probably have on total sales, profits, market share, and return on investment?

?    How would the introduction of the product affect existing products? Would the new product cannibalize existing products?

?    Would current customers benefit from the product?

?    Would the product enhance the image of the company’s overall product mix?

?    Would the new product affect current employees in any way? Would it lead to increasing or reducing the size of the workforce?

?    What new facilities, if any, would be needed?

?    How might competitors respond?

?    What is the risk of failure? Is the company willing to take the risk?

In your post please provide at least two APA references to support your answer (You can utilize the textbook). You can utilize the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL)  (Links to an external site.)website for the correct way to reference the articles used.

Question: Is this practice ethical? (consider the nature of the websites, utilize textbook information).

Reading: Chapter 16 Advertising Public Relations and Sales Promotions pg. 288

Chapter 16 Advertising Public Relations and Sales Promotions PowerPoint Presentation  Download Chapter 16 Advertising Public Relations and Sales Promotions PowerPoint Presentation

 Background:Advertising helps marketers increase or maintain brand awareness and, subsequently, market share. Typically, more is spent to advertise new brands with a small market share than to advertise older brands. Brands with a large market share use advertising mainly to maintain their share of the market. Advertising affects consumers’ daily lives as well as their purchases. Although advertising can seldom change strongly held consumer attitudes and values, it may transform a consumer’s negative attitude toward a product into a positive one. Finally, advertising can also change the importance of a brand’s attributes to consumers. By emphasizing different brand attributes, advertisers can change their appeal in response to consumers’ changing needs to try to achieve an advantage over competing brands.

Question:

What is an advertising appeal? Give some examples of advertising appeals you have observed recently in the media.
