It has been proved that the country of origin of a product was one of the two or three most important attributes in preference evaluation.

...Brand management Nov 25 - 28, 2012 SALES & MARKETING Brand Management One of the most challenging tasks for brand managers today is to make brands stand apart in the growing clutter. With reducing spending power and conservative spending trends among the target segments, every other brand is vying for its place in the current Indian marketplace.

Resonance: Advertising analyst Jim Boulton, a partner at agency Story Worldwide, says: "Consumers are automatically enrolled in a loyalty programme, and receive a regular glossy magazine that re-enforces the notion that consumers are members of an exclusive club." ( Nir Wegrzyn, CEO of design agency BrandOpus, believes the club gives Nespresso drinkers "a sense of cultural belonging that taps directly into the sophisticated global lifestyle they seek to achieve".( Judgement: Das Personal erinnert an den hoteleigenen Concierge und stärkt auch an diesem Kontaktpunkt die Markenwahrnehmung von Nespresso als First-Class-Anbieter. Auch ein entsprechender Service wird angeboten: Außer einer Beratung und einem offenen Ohr für alle Fragen rund um das Kaffeevergnügen, bekommt der Kunde seinen Kaffee nicht einfach aus dem Regal, sondern persönlich über den Verkaufstisch gereicht. Die Grand Crus werden natürlich von Fachpersonal aufgesetzt und als Club-Mitglied genießt man z.B. die Vorteile einer Maschinenwartung und einem Nespresso Boutique Pick Up Service – Einkaufen ohne Wartezeit.

Italy Country Briefing

...ITALY COUNTRY BRIEFING updated at May 2009 Forecast May 26th 2009 From the Economist Intelligence Unit Source: Country Forecast | | | | Outlook for 2009-10 • Italy's right-of-centre coalition government, led by Silvio Berlusconi, faces a major challenge to limit the impact of the global crisis on Italy's rapidly deteriorating economy and keep its fragile public finances under control. • Government cohesion will be hindered by divisions in the ruling coalition, but the Economist Intelligence Unit expects it to remain in office. Mr Berlusconi has a comfortable parliamentary majority and the centre-left is in disarray. • GDP contracted by 1% in 2008. Our baseline forecast is that it will contract by a further 4.6% in 2009 and by 0.6% in 2010. • The fiscal deficit is forecast to rise from 2.7% of GDP in 2008 to 5-5.5% of GDP in 2009-10. The public debt/GDP ratio is expected to be about 120% by the end of 2010, up from 105.8% in 2008. • Much larger deficits cannot be ruled out as our forecast assumes that the minister of the economy, Giulio Tremonti, will resist pressure for tax cuts to boost the economy and interest rates do not rise sharply. • Inflation (EU harmonised measure) will average 0.6% in 2009 and 0.9% in 2010, well down on 3.5% in 2008, reflecting weak demand and lower commodity prices.

Bezos conducted several attempts naming the company. He initially named “Cadabra Inc” in 1995 when he realized that it can be misconceived as “Cadaver” which literally means dead body. The “Amazon” was soon adopted due to the fact that it is the largest river in the world. He saw the big potential for a larger volume of sale. In addition, letter “A” in Amazon could make it available for viewers to easily notice in alphabetical list. Following image is the logo of the company.

...Brand Management (MKT624) VU Lesson 1 UNDERSTANDING BRANDS – INTRODUCTION Brand management as one of the marketing functions has been around for as long as we have known professional marketing. But, it has been a part of the traditional marketing approach in which many functions of today’s brand management were performed in a spread out fashion by the marketing manager and a combination of his team members like the sales manager, the advertising and communications manager, and the marketing administration manager to name a few. The terminology of brand management was not used. Brand management, in its present integrated form, has come into limelight and focus over the last 20 years. The functional execution has undergone transformation in terms of its description as a substantive job under one head. This implies that the overall functions of brand management are full of substance and therefore are described specifically under the head brand management and not as disparate parts of the overall marketing functions. In other words, brand management has not lost its primary roots that are well-entrenched in marketing; it only has acquired explicitly defined dimensions within which the function operates. To further elucidate the point, there have been functional adjustments within the overall marketing functions only to bring into clear and sharp focus the specific functions and job of brand management. Brand management now presents itself as a distinct part of an integrated...
