Small Business Block A

Marketing Hand-in

I’ve had a few people ask me for a written description regarding the hand-in.  Basically, I want you in your project groups to agree on a cohesive marketing strategy and then each of you individually develop an advertisement for one media.  Once you develop the media, I want you to analyse its aspects from the point of view of the 4 Ps and the ABCDE’s that we talked about in class.  You should be as specific as possible which aspects represent which ideas in marketing.

Final Hand-in Folders

Edit May 29th 8:20: I have now deactivated all of the business blogs.  If you would like to write anything more please hand it in via the Fronter catalogs below.

I’ve put up the final hand-in folders for the Marketing Assignment.  Any extra material you would like to hand in can also be put in this catalog.

We looked at Don Tapscott’s A,B,C,D,E of marketing:

  • A – Anywhere
  • B – Brand
  • C – Communication
  • D – Discovery
  • E – Experience

We also started agreeing on an outline for the Marketing Plan.

Marketing and Commercials

Learning Objectives: To be able to identify and apply marketing theory – marketing mix, plans and strategies.

For next time, you need to look at the following parts of Marketing:

  • The Marketing Mix – the 4 P’s
    • the 7/8/9 P’s – what are they and how do they differ from the 4 P’s
  • Don Tapscott’s A,B,C,D,E’s of marketing – What is it and how does it work?
  • What is a Marketing Plan? Create a preliminary outline.
  • Marketing Strategies – What are the various strategies used?


Reminder: Business Pitch Evaluations

This is now closed.

Just a reminder that everyone needs to fill in the business pitch evaluation for their own presentation as well as the one you were a dragon for. EACH MEMBER OF THE PRESENTATION TEAM MUST FILL OUT AN EVALUATION! This is required for part of your grade.

Continue reading to see who’s evaluations I have received.

No Morning Lessons / Grey Day

First years have a national test this morning and no classes are scheduled.  We begin normal classes at 12:30.

To Pitch or not to Pitch that is the question

Since there were some people missing and to give you all a little more time to prepare after the break, we had one last class to work on pitches. We will be starting the pitches on an an extra class on Thursday, April 26th @ 10.30 (Next Thursday – Room TBA). So pitches will be done that day and on Friday. In return you will get May 2nd off since I have a meeting at that time.
