a) Investigation and analysis (50%)
Individually, choose a branded mobile phone network provider (concentrating on the network service provision). Investigate and evaluate the marketing strategy of the producer/owner using contemporary marketing tools and techniques. You may however illuminate your suggestions using examples from other companies or organizations. You can demonstrate the effectiveness of the reported policies for the chosen company by giving performance data measured against the competition in the market (e.g. market share, sales, profitability, etc.).
b) Recommendations (50%)
Your remit is to put forward your own suggestions covering changes in marketing strategy that will improve the future performance of the brand for the benefit of the parent company and its stakeholders.
These suggestions should be your own ideas but may include marketing tactics and strategies used by other successful organisations or companies preferably from different industry sectors. You will put these suggestions forward in a written report.
Please do not just restate the strategies used by your chosen firm but outline your own ideas for improved performance.
