Thought I'd create this thread so we can all discuss the paper and share revision sources.

can anyone help me with the final 18 mark question
'marketing and other issues'
i find it really hard to revise this stuff and i find the essays really difficult to gain marks in!

i have decided upon a few key areas that i feel are neccessary to revise
1)promotion- above the line/ below the line/direct selling/ PR/ sponsors/ direct marketing- pros and cons of each/ALWAYS relate back to the case study given and the situation that that business is in.
2)advantages and disadvantages of SWOT analysis
3)marketing strategy to increase sales- product, place, price promotion, marketing mix- related back to the case study situation
4) pricing strategies/ customer based/ cost based/ competiton based- pros cons of each/ why the business should use the one youve evaulated in your answer
5) marketing and other issues concentrate on 4 key areas, explain and evaluate all of them and how it may benefit the marketing strategy put in place/ and the limitations of it.
examples..
-HR- invest in new products/markets/ market research/ train staff improve services-direct sellling/ overall increased sales as staff improve in customer relations- however, costly to do MKRS, is the finance available for the market research, lag times, do they have enough market evidence their new products will be succesfull
-FINANCE
-OPERATIONS
-MARKETING

learn all the possible calculations
1. markup
2. contribution
3. % change etc

-promotional methods
-market research strategys pros/cons


anyone have any other key areas of revision for this exam or key points?
i need the help i seem to not be able to mix the case study with the answer which is where i let myself down!

OHH! My bad. Basically for each of the departments (operations, finance, people and marketing) you need to pick an issue that would occur as a result of the factor they give you.

For example, if a business took over another firm, the impact on operations could be a fall in capacity
