Provide a brief explanation for each segment (one short paragraph for each segment), explaining in your words a typical persona for each segment (include lifestyle and demographic information here).

Section D- focus on one brand In this section, students are asked to choose one brand within the market that they segmented and evaluate their chosen brand on two elements: pricing strategy and branding strategy. Section D-A: analysis of pricing strategy: Students are not asked to DO the pricing but rather give an overall overview of the type of pricing strategy(s) that the brand is using. For example, penetration pricing, price skimming, premium pricing, bundle pricing, freemium pricing, etc. All these methods are explained in the class. After an explanation of the current pricing strategy, students will outline their own evaluation of these strategies and their recommendations for improvement (roughly one paragraph). In cases that the company is doing a fairly good job, students can state that and then justify why they think the current strategy(s) are good. Section D-B: analysis of branding strategies. During the lectures, students will be introduced to 3 branding strategies. In this section, students are required to explain which one of these strategy(s) their selected brand is using (bear in mind that a combination of strategies might be used). Students can refer to examples from the online or print advertisements, promotion campaigns, and product types that the company is offering to back their arguments. After an explanation of the current branding strategy(s), students will outline their own evaluation of these strategies and their recommendations for improvement (roughly one paragraph). *** Referencing: in section A and D students should use reliable academic (e.g., published papers) and non-academic (e.g., news reports, company websites, reliable surveys are done by private organizations) sources (e.g., Wikipedia is not acceptable).
