Marketing plays an important role in business by making sure that people know about the products or services that a business offers. Marketing is part of the overall
business plan of a company and integrates all aspects of the business, from financial to operations to legal. Once a marketing plan is developed, department leaders
can forecast sales. Forecasts can be used to create production schedules, create budgets, and even determine hiring needs.

Marketing research can identify specific unmet needs or wants in a target market segment, which may lead a company to develop new products to meet those needs. It can
also track buying behaviors and use that information to build brand loyalty and add value to the company.

Questions to Consider

As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged
to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that
these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment.

Consider the manner in which the product you selected is currently marketed. In Assessment 3, Market Segmentation and Product Strategy, you identified at least one way
that this product might be better positioned. In Assessment 4, Marketing Mix Analysis, you identified at least one way in which the company’s marketing communications
fell short for this product. Now consider the differences among international markets:
To what extent do your insights apply regardless of the market? Can you envision a market in which the current marketing approaches might be more successful? In a
broader sense, which of the issues you have identified apply across global markets? Which require adjustments to particular markets?
When you consider the varying expectations for this type of product across the global marketplace, which do you see as core or universal? Which expectations vary the
most from one market to another? What are the implications for constructing a global marketing strategy for this product?
