Answer the following Questions: PART 1 (approximately one page double spaced) (15 marks) Product Name (1 mark) 1.2) Describe the item in your own words: What is it, what does it do? (4 marks) 1.3) Why did you purchase this item? What was your use/need? (4 marks) 1.4) Where did you purchase the item? Why?

Describe the items and note the 4ps for each. (Competitive items are items that are similar in use and product features but differ in Marketing Mix details – 4p’s). For example, if you purchased a 2-door compact vehicle, a competitive item would be a vehicle similar in size or if you purchased a chocolate bar, a competitive item would be another chocolate bar. 2.2) Why did you select the item you purchased instead of the other 2 options? 2.3) What part of the Marketing Mix offered the advantage that you caused you to purchase the item instead of the Competitive Item? Price, Product, Promotion or Place?

(Alternative items are items that differ in product details but solve the same use case/need). For example, if you purchased a 2-door compact vehicle, an alternative/substitute item might be a Motorized Scooter or Bike if your use case/need is for transportation of 1 person. If your purchase was a chocolate bar, an alternative item might be a candy snack if your use case/need is for a sweet treat. 3.2) Why did you select the item you purchased instead of the other 2 options? 3.3) What part of the Marketing Mix offered the advantage that you caused you to purchase the item instead of the Alternative item? Price, Product, Promotion or Place? PART 4 (5 marks) 4.1) Now that you have reflected on both the Marketing Mix of the item and its competitive advantage, describe who you think might be the Target Customer for your product.
