Part a. Individual Brand Report.

In Assignment 2 you will work alone to analyse one brand within the product category chosen by your Group. Companies are always trying to stay up to date with what is going on in the market, and the strategies of their competitors. Assignment 2 is where you conduct this “marketing intelligence” exercise. Then, in Assignment 3, you will work with your fellow Group members to compare and contrast the brands that you and your fellow Group members analysed in Assignment 2.

  Choosing your Brand and Product category

As soon as the group is formed you will go to Canvas > MKT10009 > Assignments > Assignment 2 and:

  1. Choose one of the IBISWorld industry reports.  
  2. EACH GROUP MEMBER then chooses ONE of the RETAIL brands from the table (NOT the Corporate owner/brand). Do NOT CHOOSE the SAME BRAND as another Group member. 
  3. Coordinate with your groupmates to choose brands that target as many different consumers as possible.For  example, if one person chooses a brand that is targeting young consumers, then another could study a brand targeting more mature consumers.

   You will coordinate with your Group, but each member will work on their respective brand individually.

You should also present an overview analysis of the *Marketing Mix (“the 4Ps”), plus for “P” for Product you need to analyse the Three Levels – Core/Essence, Actual and Augmented. See Week 6 and Week 1 - Franz Schrepf explains the 4Ps and the 4Cs.

    1. Describethem and outline the role they play in relation to your brand

  • Describe them and outline the role they play in relation to your brand.
    • Identify the key risks if the relationship between your brand and this Supplier or Intermediary broke down.
    • Identify a way this Supplier or Intermediary could be used to provide your brand with an additional opportunity.

  1. Lifegoals that are relevant to the product category. Things such as “be healthy”, “have a happy and loving family”, “be wealthy”.
