Need 2 Discussion Questions Done For BUS330 Principles Of Marketing Details Below

  •  Discussion 1
  • Geodemographic Segmentation: Finding Your People
  • Geodemographics is a common and effective means to segment potential customers. Leveraging both demographic (e.g., gender, age, income, marital status) and psychographic (e.g., habits, hobbies, spending habits, values) data, households can be classified into segments and the relative attractiveness of these segments for your product or service can be determined.
  • In this interactivity, you’re going to take a geodemographic system (Claritas (Links to an external site.)) and determine which segment best describes you. Then, exploring map data, you’ll assess how common your segment is for where you live and where you could live amongst more people like yourself! Finally, with knowledge of your segment’s profile, you’re going to suggest a promotion for your internship brand targeted specifically to your segment.
  • Guided Response:

  • Introduce yourself.
  • Identify your mentor marketer and the relevant market before answering the questions below.
  • Identify a specific country to analyze your brand’s entry into.
  • First, identify the countries your mentor marketer does or did business in. Check out the corporate website or the latest annual report.
  • Then, search your brand in business periodicals such as Forbes in conjunction with country names or terms like “foreign” or “international.” See which markets have been written about and select one.
  • Research your chosen market to answer these questions:
  • When did your mentor marketer enter this foreign market?
  • What specific challenges did entering this market present? (e.g., cultural norms, language barriers, local competition, government regulations, economic conditions, etc.). Identify at least three.
  • What changes were made to the marketing formula in entering this market? What other changes were needed? Cite at least three examples, linking each one to a marketing P. You can repeat Ps more than once.
  • How successful was the entry into this market? Is the brand still in the market?
  • Identify and create proper APA citations for at least three different sources.
