Provide the proper name of the three companies and briefly describe the products you

Magnum Ice Cream, Hagen Dazs, and Ben and Jerry’s.
THE FOUR (4) Ps of MARKETING ARE:
• PRODUCT: Describe the want or need the product addresses.
• PLACEMENT: Describe the physical location of the product among its closest
competitors (a quick picture of the shelf would tell a good story!), and describe
what this placement says about the marketing strategy.
• PRICING: Describe the pricing strategy. A good description would include
observations about the closest competitive product and its relative pricing.
• PROMOTION: Describe how the product is being promoted. Include any obvious
physical/in-store promotions seen on the shelf, as well as flyers, coupons, social
media, online advertising, etc.
Identify and discuss the target market each company is trying to reach.

Requirements to Follow
• Use the attached rubric while completing the project to ensure all
requirements are met
• Third person writing is required. Third person means that there are no words
such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use of “you or
your” (second person writing).
• Contractions are not used in business writing, so do not use them.
• For all other source material used in the analysis, you will not use direct
quotation marks but will instead paraphrase. Meaning the ideas of an author or
article must be put into your own words rather than lifting directly from a source
document. DO NOT not use more than four consecutive words from a source
document, as doing so would require direct quotation marks. This requirement
includes facts from the case scenario. Changing words from a passage does
not exclude the passage from having quotation marks.
• Use in-text citations and provide a reference list that contains the
reference associated with each in-text citation.
Again, an example of the proper citation for the Introduction to Business
online book located at https://courses.lumenlearning.com/wmopenintrobusiness/
