MKT525 Digital and Social Media Marketing - Assessment item 1

Task

You are to select an organisation/brand you will use for ALL your assessment tasks throughout this subject*. It is recommended that you select an organisation with which you are familiar. This may be where you are employed, aspire to be employed, your own business, or an organisation you plan to create in the near future. Ideally, it is an organisation which could benefit from some assistance with their digital and social media strategies.

Go to the Discussion Board ‘Assessment 1’ and start a new Thread using the name of your organisation/brand.

Then in 200 words you are to:

  1. Detail the name of the organisation/brand and provide a link to relevant website/social media pages
  2. Provide a background on the organisation – include product/service category and current target markets
  3. Justify why the organisation/brand you have selected is appropriate for a digital and social media marketing makeover.

If an organisation has multiple offerings (brands/products/services) you are to select only one!

*TIP: THIS IS IMPORTANT - Pick a brand that is struggling or that you think needs to go in a different strategic direction. If you select a brand that is doing well, the final two assessments will be difficult
