Marketing Current Events Discussions
This Discussion focuses on mass communications, advertising, sales promotions, and public relations. Select one article that applies to mass communications, advertising, sales promotions, or public relations. Compose a short summary (300–500 words) explaining why and how this article is relevant to your unit’s materials. Keep in mind, when responding to each unit’s Article Review Discussion, your opinion is highly valued; however, the ability to integrate concepts and theories to support your ideas is also critical. This is true, not just in this class but during your business career.
Knowing what to do and how to do it is a valued skill in business, but knowing what to do and how to do it in every situation is the key to success. It is always important to apply theory to support your opinions! The better able you are to apply BOTH logic and theory — the better able you are to transfer your learning into practical application regardless of the task, project, or job.
Important: Apply concepts or theories from your textbook Reading to your review in the Article Review Discussion Assignments. Include a relevant quote from Chapter 19: “Designing and Managing Integrated Marketing Communications,” Chapter 20: “Managing Mass Communications: Advertising, Sales Promotions, Events and Experiences, and Public Relations,” or Chapter 22: “Managing Personal Communications: Direct and Database Marketing and Personal Selling,” of your Kotler and Keller Marketing Management textbook within your response. Include the Kotler and Keller reference at the end of your posting along with the reference for your selected article.
- Post your summary and reference information.
- Review other postings and compare and contrast your thoughts. What did you learn? What was your key takeaway? What other concepts or theories might be applicable?
