I have to answer these questions for my professor. Please use your own words to answer these questions.

  • 1- How has technology affected marketing? What types of new technologies are organizations using to market their products and services to both buyers and sellers?

What are some environmental factors that you will need to consider in marketing your coffee in China? Which of one of these factors would have the largest effect on the company’s marketing strategy? Explain why.
  • 3-What measurable benefits are companies deriving from their investments in the Web 2.0 technologies, both internal and external?
  • 4-What impact do you think would happen to the company that makes the Big Green Egg if they had an extensive ad campaign?
  • 5-You mentioned that the Internet has opened up a wider range of target markets and customers for companies. By doing so, these companies have also entered a media that has many more competitors selling the same products as other companies. What can these companies do, marketing-wise, that would differentiate their products or services to attract customers to their web sites?

9-This video was very interesting. One key point that stood out was how the gentleman believed strongly about marketing. He did not put all of his focus on the product. While the product is important, the marketing was more significant. At one point he was putting 50% of sales back into marketing. It does make since. Businesses have to know how to appeal to customers and understand what is going to make them happy. Up until 2013, my employer did not have a huge marketing plan. A lot of our business was from word of mouth, but there came a point where we were sort of stagnate. We were not able to compete with the bigger competitors. We put a lot of money into marketing in the form of brochures, marketing package, and website. Over the last two years, business has more than doubled
