SwapSoles will initially be introduced within the American sports apparel industry. This industry is quite competitive and is dominated by organizations such as Nike Inc., Under Armour, New Balance, and Adidas (Chung et al., 2022). Besides being competitive, the industry is very dynamic and prone to evolution. Customer needs and preferences differ not only depending on the geographical and cultural background of customers but also change frequently depending on the existing trend (Chung et al., 2022). In 2021, the American sports apparel industry was valued at approximately $103 billion (Chung et al., 2022). This figure is expected to grow to over $130 billion by 2025 (Chung et al., 2022).

According to Lanvin and Evans (2017), P&G has evolved due to the support garnered from key stakeholders. While focusing on the firm’s home business environment, significant pillars based on the Global Competitive Index have been the firm’s marketability and growth indicators. The pillars include inputs from institutions, infrastructure, ICT adoptions, macroeconomic stability, health, skills, product market, labor, financial systems, innovations, business dynamism, and market size (Lanvin & Evans2017). The company has leveraged support from government labs and universities in the systemic innovations, entailing manufacturing infrastructure and ICT adoptions to streamline production processes.

P&G’s Cultural Values Based on Hofstede’s Model

While exploring culture using the Hofstede’s model, the power distance is low, with a score of 40, which measures the degree of inequality in groups, organizations, and individuals (Hofstede Insights, n.d.). Notably, P&G’s organizational hierarchy is flat, thus promoting visibility and equality (P&G, b). Further, the US culture is highly individualistic, scoring 91. Hence, the firm addresses this value by giving employees privacy in their workspaces and personal life. The masculinity score is 69, indicating how society drives competition (Hofstede

Brick and mortar refer to an organization owning a physical presence for its operations where customers can walk in. However, the retail landscape has been in continuous flux for the past twenty years. That is due to threats from large chain stores and the rise of eCommerce sites forcing retailers to adapt to new innovations to attract more customers (Qi, Chan, Hu, & Li, 2020). Transitioning to online selling is one way of navigating these changes. Branding online for brick and mortar is cost-effective because, unlike the traditional way of opening more stores, launching an online store is more budget-friendly. That will cut employee salaries, renovation costs, and rent as digital commerce requires minimal overhead costs. Doing business online will only need one person to run the website while customers can collect their products from the store.

They are also environmentally friendly since they utilize little or no petrol or diesel (Nazaripouya et al., 2019). Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, coupled with the response by the United States government banning the import of Russian oil and gas, drove up gas prices. This made it very expensive for many Americans to operate their vehicles, prompting numerous people to look for viable alternatives (Wayland, 2022). The only option other than paying the high gas prices was to look for electric vehicles. This phenomenon drove up the demand for electric vehicles (Wayland, 2022). This paper will review an article analyzing the impact of rising gas prices on the demand and supply of EVs, integrating economic concepts such as the market, market equilibrium, law of demand, and prices control into the review.

Supply chain decisions

Answer two out of the three discussion questions, listed below, for this week.

1. Please make a list of products you believe failed because of poor marketing channel choices.

2. Why do marketing professionals care about and participate in supply chain decisions?

3. Are small business owners at a disadvantage if they lack the marketing research resources large companies have? Why or why not?

Requirements: 250 words min

Answer preview

Small business owners are at a disadvantage if they lack marketing resource resources. One of the reasons is that small firms have limited staff and promotions compared to larger businesses. Therefore, a small entity will exhaust its resources to utilize and execute promotions optimally. Also, the reduced number of labor resources hinders efficient market exploration since staff will be overworked (Boughton, 2014). Another reason small companies are disadvantaged if they lack marketing research resources is the focus on a niche market.

I have attached the same information in a word doc. Also, attached a template The formatting is weird in this text box.


Marketing managers for global organizations are often asked to evaluate the feasibility of new products and services and predict their profitability for the organization. For this task, you will select a business that would like to develop new products and services in order to attain a competitive advantage in the global market. You will first consider the products and services the company currently offers and recommend new products and services that have the most potential for profitability based on your evaluation. You will then identify the target market and consider how you would reach that market using traditional mass media and social media for the launch and beyond.

For example, a natural foods company may need to begin offering an online ordering system to remain competitive. If you discover a market exists for a new natural food product that is desired in other countries but not readily available there, this might be a good product to recommend adding, but you should first determine whether it is feasible.

Select a business from one of the industries listed below:

Note: Please choose a business that can be adapted to a global market. Fictional names should be used. Also, organization-specific data, including financial information, should not be included but should be addressed in a general fashion as appropriate.

The information serves as the foundation for successful models and strategies in the business environment. Having extensive and accurate market research allows investors or companies to better understand their target audience and fill any gap in the market. Business entities should learn from their competitors and allocate their resources most profitably. Business entities must conduct market research to identify the market gaps and the best way to profitably combine their resources. Market research allows a deeper, more complete understanding of consumer values. Hence, this is more useful when developing products and creating market strategies. It allows the company to reveal the consumer needs, opinions, and interests about the current business entities in the market and products.

For this journal, first review the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric PDF document and post any questions to the General Questions Topic. Then review the Nimble Storage: Scaling Talent Strategy Amidst Hyper-Growth case study.

In your journal, answer the following questions:

  • What are some common concerns companies have that keep them from being more effective in the global market?
  • In a global market, what should a company consider changing to better embody social and cultural norms and to become a more geocentric organization? Consider possible changes to the company’s technology, interpersonal policies, business practices, or other variables.

For additional details, please refer to the Journal Guidelines and Rubric PDF document.

Answer preview

As a matter of fact, the Nimble Storage company has adopted some social and cultural norms that make it a more geocentric organization. For instance, the company has a future projection on its change in technology policy. The Nimble storage management understands that technology influences communication and how they share information. Ford et al. (2018) give an example of effective companies like Nimble storage in the global market, such as Apple, and Alibaba, that embraces technological applications such as Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams to communicate and market their products. Therefore, technology should be a major change for a company to be geocentric. Lastly, the Nimble storage company enacts possible changes to its business practices, such as utilizing and discovering the optimal ways to reach its objectives.

Why do Gass & Seiter think that the use of fear appeals is more ethically defensible than the use of threats?

Requirements: 2-3 paragraphs

Answer preview

Advertisers may use different appeals to persuade consumers, and this may include the use of fear or threats appeal. In their position, threats should only be used when other strategies have failed or are unavailable. This is due to the undesirable social consequences of the threats. For instance, the psychological distress on the receiver’s side, the manipulation or exploitative aspect, relationships are affected, and there is the diminishing of the receiver’s morale and self-esteem (Gass & Seiter, 2019).

Gass & Seiter (2019) argue that fear appeals are more ethically defensible than threats based on the belief that if the dangers associated with the fear are real or genuine, then using fear is ethically defensible. On the same note, Gass & Seiter (2019) posit that fear appeals should highlight how the harm in the appeals can be avoided and recommend what the target audiences should do.

significant time since responses are quick due to higher control and prompt answers. However, they impede the development of a connection with the interviewees, which is one of the primary goals of qualitative research methods. Control can also be limited when the participants refuse to continue engaging by hanging up the phone (Novick, 2018). It is mainly faced when the questions are complex or lengthy. Through telephone interviews, responses can be ambiguous because participants have restricted time to elaborate on answers, resulting in incomplete discussions. Besides, there is no face-to-face interaction to understand the feedback and consider its reliability in research fully.

The CDC’s campaign took place in two phases. The first phase of adverts ran between February 3 and April 6, while the second ran between July 7 and September 7 (CDC, 2016). The adverts contained messages about individuals struggling with smoking-related issues such as gum disease, cancer, stroke, and premature birth. Furthermore, the campaign also ran adverts featuring stories of the impact smoking-related issues have on a smoker’s family and friends (CDC, 2020). The FDA implemented a comprehensive paid media strategy to alter their tobacco-related knowledge, beliefs, conduct, and attitudes (FDA, n.d.). After a rise in smokeless tobacco use amongst teenagers in 2016 prompted the FDA to include adverts targeting hard-to-reach male youths between 12 and 17 years who were at risk for using smokeless tobacco (FDA, n.d.). During this 2016 campaign, the primary message was “smokeless doesn’t mean harmless.
