Do they offer coupons locations or directions if applicable? Tell me as though I am blind. This should be pretty detailed. 5. How have each of the three competitors positioned themselves in the market- place? In your opinion have they done a good job? If not why not? Do you feel that the target consumers see the company properly (as the company expects)? Design a short survey5 Questions / 15-20 people.. To find out and analyze the results. Do all three competitors occupy the same place in the consumers mind or are they somehow differentiated from each other? Is one the quality leader while the others are vying to be the price leader etc.? 6. What issues do these competitors have to deal with? Think in terms of INTERNAL and EXTERNAL factors. Do a SWOT analysis for your primary choice. 7. Think of any product in the world that is no longer being sold. (Be specific about brand and description).. It must have been a good idea at one point..

What can you find out about your three choices and how they are addressing the societal marketing concept? Do they pollute? Do they recycle? Do they use toxic chemicals? (Hint: look at their web sites or in-house literature). Do they support charitable causes? Google it. 9.
