How to create blog content easily Just one post per week… it’s not that much too ask is it? Many of the people I talk to about Internet marketing say the same thing, “I don’t have time to keep up with my blog.” This is especially true in the offline world. Business owners are juggling too many different tasks, and writing an article seems like a lot of work. I would counter, especially to the offline business owners, that you are an expert, it shouldn’t take that much time to write an article.
One method of problem solving or decision-making is a process called “chunking”. Chunking is grouping or categorizing related issues or information into the smallest, most meaningful unit. Think about how hard it would be to read a 300-page book without sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. Chunking is a naturally occurring process that can be actively used to break down problems and communicate more efficiently. Even though there is the possibility of losing sight of the big picture while using chunking, chunking allows logical grouping of data for easier understanding.
By Jon Griffin Many people think of globalization as the transfer of jobs to foreign countries. While this is certainly a part of globalization, a true definition would have to include the interconnectedness of everything around us. The interconnections are evidence of the true nature of globalization. Especially in the free world, very little is produced or created in only one country. Parts, labor, and transport almost always cross international lines at some point in the product cycle.

This is a fictional case study on how to use a SWOTT analysis when starting a new business or expanding an existing one. All information is fictional except the facts about Trader Joe’s. This is not a proposal to them, or anything based on inside knowledge. As far as I know, there are no plans to create Trader Jane’s. Don’t call Trader Joe’s and ask them when the new Trader Jane’s will be open.
All marketing plans need to include a control phase that tests marketing methods against the quantified goals of the marketing plan. Most companies use sales analysis tracing “sales revenues to their sources, such as specific products, sales territories, or customers” (Kerin, Hartley et al, 2005, p. 603). With the advent of computerization and data-warehouses, companies can now analyze many different sub-categories of sales data. Some of these include geographic disbursement, discounts, product variations, and order characteristics as well as customer data and profitability.
Dividing the multitude of marketing variables or mix into four distinct categories makes it much easier to formulate a marketing strategy. The four categories are (1) product, (2) place, (3) price, and (4) promotion, and are commonly called the “four p’s.” Note also that the client is not part of, but rather is the target of the marketing mix (Perreault, Jr. & McCarthy, 2004, p. 38). Product Armstrong and Kotler define product as “anything that can be offered to a market for attention, acquisition, use, or consumption and that might satisfy a want or need” (Armstrong & Kotler, 2005, p.

Maywood Entertainment is a struggling music publishing company that specializes in ethnic music and ethnomusicology. Maywood Entertainment has been in existence for over 15 years, mainly to protect copyrights owned by the principals. The copyrights, and the finished products as well, have sat stagnant for many years with little flurries of activity when the possibility of exploiting one of the intellectual properties arises. No formal strategy has been initiated, and the tactical approach has been to react to either new ideas or licensing.
There are many methods of conflict resolution. This fictitious case talks about third party conflict resolution. These cases can help you create a conflict resolution lesson plan. You should also look for other cases, and if necessary create your own theoretical problem based scenarios. You can also adapt this case to your own conflict resolution lesson. Background Joe Gibbons is a vice-president at MegaLights, a lighting manufacturer. Joe has been with MegaLights for 38 years and will retire in two years.
