I must say the most surprise sentence I read in this article was "The people are the true end; language is just a tool to reach and teach them, a means to an end." I had never thought of my words in that context. It is amazing how sticking to the basics can create an effective message. In the Marketing Strategy our document we used the message "this is a one-stop shop that is fast, easy, and convenient." This is a simple and familiar message that has been used before by other companies. It follows rule one and eight.

Should we focus on marketing to high school seniors? How are we going to do that? What marketing tactics would you suggest considering we have students from all over the world? Should we try to market to dorm residence and apartment residences at the same time? Are there any other marketing mediums you would suggestion other than the exponent newspaper and website, flyers, dorms, and certain apartments?

Considering I have never written a business plan before, this book gets right to the point on the first page. It dose not give you a long flowery, instead it tells you flat out "Without a business plan, you don't know where you're going, and you can't measure your progress." The book I am recomending is called The Succesful Business Plan: Secrets & Strategies by Rhonda Abrams.

I do not think that this is a real complaint. The man said in his message that he was a large 200lb man. Most guys are not too taribly over weight at 200lbs. If he is eating as much sasage as he was saying he should be weighing more. The link I have posted are the nutrition facts for the sausage. The calories don't seem to add up to really bad eating habits even at a 12oz size. 16 ozs would have more calories, but not by that much.

For me I voted for the last presentation because they gave the most concrete information. They tied it to a real organization and honestly as an investor; I thought I could make the most money off of it. With a new company doing research on the user trends on the Internet, which is like gold. To think of all of the marketing firms or other industries that would want this information. You could charge a lot of money to corporations in order to get this information.

In the business world it is so competitive that you often only have one chance, one impression, or a moment to show someone you have something better to offer than the next guy. Not only do we have to sell our ideas in person, but we must also be able to do it on paper. You never know when you're going to get a chance to break into the market you're trying to target and one day it might very well be on paper. With all of the new technological tools coming out it has never been easier to access someone's work.
