MARKETING ASSIGN 6 Think back to your impressions before you started this class versus how you would answer now that you are being introduced to the marketing world. Is marketing all about sales and profits, or is it about advertising or public relations, or is it about something else? Share your point of view about the meaning and role of marketing and customer relationship management. To explain, try to think of examples of companies you have relationships with — dry cleaners, a candy bar company, insurance company, or restaurant chain? Why do you keep going back (or why not)? ASSIGN 7 Think of a new product you recently purchased or used, or an ad for a new product. Share with the class this new product idea; in addition to describing this new item indicate whether this new product is either additions to existing product lines or improvements or revisions of existing products. Do you believe your new product will be among the few new product ideas that are truly successful? Why or why not?

ASSIGN 9 Marketers cannot create demand or make people buy things that they don’t want or need.

A friend of yours agrees with the following adage, “People don’t know what they want, they only want what they know.” Write a one-page paper expressing the extent to which you think marketers shape consumer wants, needs, and must haves. ASSIGN 10 The world of marketing is multifaceted and offers unending challenges that require creative thinking to make a difference. For this weeks assignment I offer the challenge for you to look around your city/neighborhood for a product or business that has failed in the marketplace. What happened to cause this business or product to fail? This assignment is meant to get you thinking outside the box, and to have fun and be creative. There is no right or wrong answer. Building a better mousetrap won’t guarantee success, and this assignment drives this message home. Through this assignment you will learn that failure is a valuable learning tool and that many great ideas are born from the experience of failure are well on the road to success.
