I need a short intro and conclusion.

 

I need this by Tuesday night or earlier.

Marketing has often been defined in terms of satisfying customers’ needs and wants. Critics, however, maintain that marketing goes beyond that and creates needs and wants that did not exist before. They feel marketers encourage consumers to spend more money than they should on goods and services they do not really need. What is your understanding of the role of marketing and the marketing management process?

 

 

Compare Complete the “Think About It” activity in Section 1.2 of the text:

Select a consumer product of personal interest—one that you have purchased within the past six months. It can be anything, just as long you are familiar with the product and generally understand how it is marketed. Using the matrix model of marketing management in Table 1.2, fill in the cells of the matrix as completely and thoroughly as you can for the brand that you purchased. Be sure that your entries correspond to your perspective as a customer for this brand. In short, you are the target market. You may wish to create one or more positioning maps to help illustrate how you perceive the competitive playing field. Once you’re done, examine the intersection of each cell.

  1. How do the elements of the marketing mix align with the four strategy categories in the left-hand column?
  2. Does every one of the 4 P’s contribute to each of the strategic objectives established in the left-hand column?
  3. Do you see room for improvement? How would this assessment be different for other types of customers?
Consider the quote by Wittgenstein, “The limits of my language are the limits of my life.” Students will respond to the following: o Explain whether it is possible to think without using language. o If you believe it is possible, describe how a person might enact “languageless” thinking. o If you believe it is not possible, describe what you foresee as the problems with languageless thinking.
  1. Describe where you would locate your urban forest and explain why you would locate it there. Remember to take into account major features, waterways, elevations, roads, etc. as well as climate and soils of the location. You can describe the area by noting bordering roads and features.

 

  1. What species of trees would you plant in this forest? Consider the uses of the forest in your selection. Describe the characteristics of the species that make them appropriate for your location. Be specific and keep in mind that a wide variety of tree species are necessary for forest health, especially preventing serious insect and disease damage to your forest.  Include at least 6 species.
  1. Urban forests have many benefits from pollution and noise abatement to aesthetics and parkland.  What uses would you assign to your forest and why? Explain in detail.
  1. Discuss what care and maintenance would be needed to support this site. Consider both ecological (forest plants and animals) and environmental (man) factors. Refer to Chapter 18, Text.
  1. 5.       Explain in detail what you perceive to be the greatest difficulty in creating this urban forest and why.
