Question 1: Take a look at some of the advertising conducted by locally based business in your area. Chose two campaigns one that you think is effective and one is that you think is ineffective. What differences in the campaigns make one the better than other.
Answer: Two local based business that I’ve choose is “Ahmed fabrics “and the other campaign is “Aslam fabrics”. I found Ahmed fabrics more effective campaign because of their advertisement. Advertisement in sense, they put up many Ads on social media i.e. Facebook, Google and many others as well as on cable TVs and billboard’s. This is how they attract people. People start knowing about their packages and people always have the name of something when they need something means let suppose that I wanted to buy a unstitch shirt piece from local business i.e. not from brand. The first name which comes to my mind is “Ahmed fabrics” just because I’ve seen many Ads of that campaign and this campaign usually upload their sale packages i.e. 50% of on entire stock, buy 1 get one free, upto 70% off on so on…. to social media which attract people too much. Aslam fabrics is not so popular or may be many people don’t know about them unless those who’ve visited the area where Aslam fabrics is. Just because they haven’t had any Ads or interaction to people via social media or nothing to advertised locally i.e. no pamphlets, no billboards, so, no one easily know about them. So, the point is this advertisement matters a lot in promotion of your business and increases your sales and generates profit.
Question 2: Select a good or a services that you have purchased recently try to retrace the promotional tools that bought the product to your attention were some of those promotional…...

Promotional Mix

...describe in detail promotional mix and how it will help my company. Let’s start with the store. The name of a supermarket chain opening in Cyprus is Lidl. Lidl is a German global discount supermarket chain, based in Neckarsulm, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, that operates over 10,000 stores across Europe. It belongs to the holding company Schwarz Gruppe. The company was founded in the 1930s by a member of the Schwarz family. Lidl has since its opening in 1973 established itself in over 20 countries throughout Europe and is the fifth-largest retailer in the world with sales of $82.4 billion by the year 2011. Lidl has a no-frills approach of keeping its products in the original delivery cartons, allowing the customers to take the product directly from the carton. When the carton is empty, it is simply replaced with a full one. Staffing is minimal, so that a profit can still be made even though the prices are low. These supermarkets are branded products on offer and import many low-priced gourmet foods from Europe, it also sources many local products from the country where the store is located. Lidl has special weekly offers, and its stock of non-food items often changes with time. 1 It is a very good investment for our company to open this store in Cyprus. With the help of low costs on products and high quality our store will be successful. __________________ 1 The second thing is to provide opening with the promotional mix, because every......

...The promotion that I have located is a promotional campaign from PepsiCo Vietnam for its new snack product Poca Twisties, which is also known as Twisties in other Asian market like Singapore, Malaysia or Thailand (this is an equivalent to PepsiCo’s Fritos/ Doritos for the Asian market). Beside using traditional promotion methods ad like print ads or broadcast ads (which will still be used after this specific campaign is over), the main content of this campaign is heavily emphasized on social media platforms, specifically YouTube and Facebook, which is also what I will focus on. This content is designed, proposed and operated by a local marketing agency instead of in-house department, which is a common practice for big organization. Since the method being used in the campaign is rather new, uncommon and is intended to work specifically for Vietnam market, I will describe the campaign (along with background information) so that it is easier to understand what the campaign is and why the company choose to do this, as well as to answer the discussion question (also because it’s impossible to find and understand what the campaign is about if you don’t speak the language) Background information: Facebook is currently the most popular social network platform in Vietnam, with over 20 million users over the population of 90 million. YouTube, while not having any details data, also seen improving in term of users and user engagement. This is contributed by 2 factors: 1- Internet......

It is also different in that Globalization 1.0 and 2.0 were driven primarily by European and American companies and countries. But going forward, this will be less and less true. Globalization 3.0 is not only going to be driven more Summary The World is Flat, Thomas L. Friedman 2(9) by individuals but also by a much more diverse -- non-Western, nonwhite -- group of individuals. In Globalization 3.0, you are going to see every color of the human rainbow take part. ''Today, the most profound thing to me is the fact that a 14-year-old in Romania or Bangalore or the Soviet Union or Vietnam has all the information, all the tools, all the software easily available to apply knowledge however they want,'' said Marc Andreessen, a co-founder of Netscape and creator of the first commercial Internet browser. ''That is why I am sure the next Napster is going to come out of left field.

Marketing Strategy as Promotional Tools

...Promotional strategy is designed to sell a product. It is a one-way form of communication, from company to consumer, geared toward giving consumers the information necessary to make a purchasing decision. Promotions tell consumers about the product and how to get it. The purpose of promotion is to sell products and to build brand name. The promotional strategy is a two-way interaction between company and consumer designed primarily to increase sales, often by attracting new customers. Brand building is a side effect of promotional strategies, but it is not the purpose. Promotional strategies give away something, whether it is free product, money or other awards, as a way to bring in consumers who may not be attracted to the product under normal circumstances. Promotional strategies can also increase sales through repetition. Promotional campaigns can cost a great deal of money and may not show immediate results. The promotional strategy is ideal for small to medium or even large companies with brand recognition. Examples of promotional strategy include scripted commercials, magazine advertisements, radio announcements, giving away coupons, printed information or free products/free sampling that inform the consumer about a product. It is also a mixed of advertising, promotion, personal selling and publicity for communication with its target market. Promotion constitutes the key tool that's used to deliver information about a product or service to consumers and the public at......

The Promotional Mix

...Abstract The promotional mix has been used for many years to help explain the promotional activities undertaken by organizations. Promotion is considered to be one of the 4P’s on the marketing mix. The Marketing Communications Mix is the specific mix of advertising, personal selling, sales promotion, public relations, and direct marketing a company uses to pursue its advertising and marketing objectives. In order to decide how too properly to utilize the mix is important to consider the relative strengths and weakness of each component of the mix. The objectives of the promotional mix must be realistic and reasonable. Each promotional element has a different communication capacity, is effective at different stages in the buying process and there is a different level of control over each one. The decision for choice of promotion mix will depend upon several factors such as, the target audience, objectives, complexity of the product, and monetary restraint. The advertising we have known in the past couple of decades has been about interruptions, and the advertising in the future need to be more about engagement (Hughes & Fill, 2007). It is not enough for a business to have good products sold at attractive prices in order to generate sales and profits, the benefits of products have to be communicated to customers. Advertising is any paid form of nonpersonal presentation and promotion of ideas, goods, or services by an identified sponsor (Kotler & Keller 2009). It is the mass...

Bussiness Google has long operated with the mantra “don’t be evil”! When this phrase was originally formulated, the central message was that Google should never compromise the integrity of its search results. For example, Google decided not to let commercial considerations bias its ranking. This is why paid links are not included in its main search results, but listed on the right hand side of the results page. The mantra “don’t be evil”, however, has become more than that at Google; it has become a central organizing principle of the company and an ethical touchstone by which managers judge all of its strategic decisions. Google’s mission and mantra raised hopes among human rights activities that the search engine would be an unstoppable tool for circumventing government censorship, democratizing information, and allowing people in heavily censored societies to gain access to information that their governments were trying to suppress, including the largest country on earth, China. Google began a Chinese language service in 2000, although the service was operated from the United States. In 2002, the site was blocked by the Chinese authorities. Would be users of Google’s search engine were directed to a Chinese rival. The blocking took Google’s managers totally by surprise. Reportedly, co-founder Sergey Brin immediately ordered half a dozen books on China and quickly read them in an effort to understand this vast country. Two weeks later, for reasons that have never been......

Promotional Mix

...10 Minute Guide Promotional Mix What it is The 'promotional mix' is a term used to describe the set of tools that a business can use to communicate effectively the benefits of its products or services to its customers. The promotional mix includes the following tools – — advertising — public relations — sales promotion — direct marketing — personal selling The promotional mix is part of the wider marketing mix. To find out about the marketing mix see the 10-minute Marketing Mix. The challenge is to select the right mix of promotional activities to suit your particular business at a particular time – and to then use it correctly to achieve a result. The combination of tools you use will depend on the target audience, the message you wish to communicate and the budget you make available. There would be little point in advertising new gas boilers in a fashion magazine – much more appropriate to advertise in a trade magazine for builders and gas fitters. Here is a 10-step checklist for developing and managing your promotional mix. 1. Decide how the products and services you provide can be 'packaged' together. The image of your business is formed by the way you promote the elements of the marketing mix – your products, prices and the places through which you sell. It is often helpful to think about promoting the business as opposed to a single product or service. If you need to think more about the marketing mix before going any further, take a look at the 10-minute Marketing...

...of the Islamic paradigm that is defined by the Qur’ān and the Sunnah. If found to be so, the next step would be to evaluate the hypotheses through logical reasoning vis-a-vis the rationale behind the teachings of the Sharīcah. If this step is satisfactory, then possible empirical testing of hypotheses may proceed to a feasible extent, against historical records and statistical data available for Muslim and non-Muslim societies in the past and present to see its reliability in practical life. In his works, Chapra (1996, 38) also proposes ‘methodological pluralism’ (i.e., the possibility of using different methodologies) in developing Islamic economics. In this regard, Islamic economics might use the techniques of testing and the tools of analysis developed by conventional economics and other social sciences. Islamic economics may also adopt the theories of conventional economics that have become a part of conventional wisdom, if these theories are not in conflict with the logical structure of the Islamic worldview. 10 International Journal of Economics, Management & Accounting 19, no. 1 (2011) Mohamed Aslam Haneef (1997) Haneef (1997) in his article “Islam, the Islamic Worldview, and Islamic Economics” explains the role of Islamic worldview in the process of developing Islamic economics.

Branding often consist of a brand name such as Adidas it involve creating a unique name and image for the products.
