In my Marketing class, I do a project where students work in groups to "create" a company and a product new to the market that they have to "sell" to the school. The companies have to create an original logo. In creating their logos, I'd have students check the USPTO database to be sure their logo ideas don't match ones already registered in the database. Also, I would get students to use the patent classification system to give their new products a unique name using patent "language".
This resource was created by Arielle Levine in collaboration with Kristen Evans as part of the 2019-20 ESU-NDE Digital Age Pedagogy Project. Educators worked with coaches to create Lesson Plans promoting both content area and digital age skills. This Lesson Plan is designed for students in grades 9-12 taking a Business course. Students will create their three pieces of Direct Marketing (think e-mails or ads you receive in the mail) and then present them. Each of the ads needs to be marketed towards a distinctly different target market.
This project is a fun way for students to think about the four elements of the marketing mix through research of a product/service and breaking it down to examine each element.
“The internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow'”. – Bill Gates.
The internet and other information technologies have created many interesting and
innovative ways to provide customer value since its inception in 1969. Web sites for
marketing communication and customer support; one-to-one communication to many
different receiving devices; consumer behavior insights based on offline and online data combination; inventory optimization through CRM-SCM integration; a single-minded focus on ROI and associated performance metrics are all important strategies. The social media provide perfect platforms for connecting with today’s consumer: High readership blogs, social networks (such as Facebook and LinkedIn), and online communities (such as YouTube, Twitter and Second Life), gave consumers the opportunity to be heard in large numbers, and smart marketers have learned how to tap into these “citizen journalists” for improving products and marketing communication.
Students analyze an assortment of popular inventions to determine whom they are intended to benefit, who has access to them, who might be harmed by them, and who is profiting by them. Then they re-imagine the devices in a way that they believe would do more good for humanity. During the first 90-minute class period, they evaluate and discuss designs in small groups and as a class, examining their decision-making criteria. Collectively, they decide upon a definition of "ethical" that they use going forward. During the second period, students apply their new point-of-view to redesign popular inventions (on paper) and persuasively present them to the class, explaining how they meet the class standards for ethical designs. Two PowerPoint® presentations, a worksheet and grading rubric are provided.
The 11th grade learning experience consists of 7 mostly month-long units aligned to the Common Core State Standards, with available course material for teachers and students easily accessible online.

Rubrics and student models accompany many writing assignments.Throughout the 11th grade year, in addition to the Common Read texts that the whole class reads together, students each select an Independent Reading book and engage with peers in group Book Talks. Students move from learning the class rituals and routines and genre features of argument writing in Unit 11.1 to learning about narrative and informational genres in Unit 11.2: The American Short Story. Teacher resources provide additional materials to support each unit.

A grocery store marketing tour I developed for my 10-year-old nephew after noticing that he was interested in how money (particularly buying/selling) worked. The tour took about 1 hour and then about 15-30 minutes for him to pick and purchase the items he wanted with the $10 I gave him. The information in this guide is a compilation of industry stories from primary and secondary sources. I encourage you to do your own research to confirm the accuracy of these stories.I also encourage you to use this as a guide and be ready to adapt and use different examples, different products, etc. depending on what the student is engaging with and what is available at your local grocery store.
Infographics can be useful tools whenever you are trying to convey information with a strong visual approach. Infographics are especially good at making numerical data easy to see and understand.

Section two situates the lesson in business marketing themes and vocabulary by addressing slogans and logos. The student is asked to create their own design and to avoid grammatical errors and stereotypes. Finally, in section three, the student will compose a formal email to the "marketing manager" in order to discuss the shortcomings of the design of the original merchandise and to introduce their own design improvements.

The Power of Selling is the perfect textbook to teach students about the proven process of selling. More important, it teaches students how to apply the tenets of selling to how to sell themselves and get the job they want, with the same process professional sales people learn (or brush up) on their own selling skills.What makes someone successful in sales? Are great sales people born or made? Is there one magic selling process, or does the process change based on the business…or the customer? How can the selling process really come alive for students in the classroom? How do students learn how to sell for life, not just for a course? The Power of Selling by Kim Richmond answers these questions and makes the principles of selling come alive.Kim looks at the topic of selling through a different lens, and provides inspiration and ideas.

Whether you are an executive, an entrepreneur, or an employee, A Primer on Sustainable Business will help you understand the big picture of what it means to be a sustainable business and will give you the information you need to begin your journey toward sustainability.
Principles of Marketing teaches the experience and process of actually doing marketing - not just the vocabulary. It carries five dominant themes throughout in order to expose students to marketing in today's environment: Service dominant logic, sustainability, ethics and social responsibility, global coverage, and metrics.
Marketing is a tool used by companies, organizations, and people to shape our perceptions and persuade us to change our behavior. The most effective marketing uses a well-designed strategy and a variety of techniques to alter how people think about and interact with the object in question. Less-effective marketing causes people to turn off, tune out, or not even notice. Why should you care about marketing? Marketing is an ever-present force in modern society, and it can work amazingly well to influence what we do and why we do it.
