Application of key marketing concepts and terminology to a brand

This term project is designed to apply the key marketing concepts and terminology to a brand and to showcase your skills in technology and communication.  You will create a blog with several entries responding to prompts about the brand, provide feedback to your classmates and create an audio/visual presentation providing commentary on the blog.

Below are the steps to complete the project:

Post 1 BRAND Selection  1) Select a brand from the list on SignUpGenius (see Canvas for details) 2) Create a free account on Tumblr.  The blog is about your brand, so name it after the brand (be careful though, as most brands do not allow you to use the exact brand name).  3) POST 1 BRAND NAME – explain why you chose this brand and its importance from your perspective.     www.tumblr.com; post your Tumblr blog name to Canvas.

PRESENTATION.  Take all the postings you’ve made so far and narrate them to tell the story of the brand.  Use your phone or computer to video yourself talking about the brand.  I’d suggest you use the blog itself as your visual and use Screencastomatic (if you know another tool that’s accessible by all, please check with me).  No need to video yourself the entire time, but we do want to see you at the start (at a minimum).  Check out Screencastomatic here… it’s free and very easy to use.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aabbnTC5e4
