Understanding Marketing Terms

This activity is for students near the end of studying Marketing 101 (or similar) as it poses a number of clarification and understanding questions relating to research, product mix, consumer needs, and segmentation = a mix of topics, rather than one set topic area. It is also a supplementary activity that leads into Using Different Bases for Market Segmentation.

Tropicana’s Packaging Case Study

In this activity we are going back to 2009 when Tropicana underwent a significant packaging redesign that did not go as planned. Although this occurred a number of years ago, it is a “classic” case study that all marketing students and practitioners should be aware of. It is especially useful for understanding the importance of packaging, branding, and what drives customer loyalty and repeat (habitual) purchases.
