What can you do with this?

In this session's lecture, we looked at some basic marketing concepts, such as

  • the marketing mix
    • product, price, place, promotion
  • target segmentation
  • product differentiation

When you investigate your ASX-listed company can you evidence any of these (or other aspects of marketing if you are feeling adventurous!). For example, how does your chosen company use an element of the marketing mix, say 'promotion'?  What is promotion and how do they demonstrate it in their business?  Or, how do they differentiate their product from others in the marketplace?  Use Sharp's ebook to be sure you have a resource to support any definitions or explanations, and use the investor database/s to find out about the company use.
