Marketing Project 







All parts in the Marketing Mix are important. Not only do companies have to do research about new products, they must find ways to make potential customers aware of the products, price the products at the right price, and distribute the products to stores where their target market shops. Colors, logos, slogans, people, and many other factors are all an important part in the process.  Your goal:  If you could create a product that no one else had created already, what would it be? Think hard because the fun is about to begin.
