Learning Activity #1
This week’s Text and additional reading material explore Advertising. As consumers we can define our attitudes and acceptance or rejection of advertising based upon our perceptions and experience. But as students of Business Management, we are called upon to examine the topic more in depth and from a corporate perspective. After reading the Chapter 12 Text, and many of the additional material provided, please address the following questions from the perspective of a business owner or chief marketing officer.
1. Describe each of the five conceptions of a consumer providing a solid definition from our course reading, and at least one good example of a product and its typical consumer for each.
2. What ethical principles would you apply to the marketing of your company’s brand(s). Include an alignment of the principles selected in relation to caveat emptor.
3. What specifically would you prescribe for your company’s social media and data privacy policies related to the advertising of your company’s product(s).
