Unit 8 Discussion: Analyzing Market Trends

Unit 8 Discussion: Analyzing Market Trends

***** Due by Friday @ 11:59p EST *****

Overview:

Walt Disney created the Disney brand from humble beginnings based on his love of drawing and animation. Few brands monetize content better than the Walt Disney Company and has since expanded into a global entertainment and media brand, and recently, has a new leader at the helm.

Simulated Business Scenario:

Gabriel is the executive in charge who created and developed Disney’s ‘customer-for-life’ concept.  This is based on the notion that as the child grows, Disney hopes to gain two brand loyalists: the parents and the child. Disney’s new CEO asked Gabriel to head up the new Disney+ streaming media brand. The CEO wants Gabriel to create a report which analyzes future marketing of the new Disney+ brand. You are on Gabriel’s team and he called a series of meetings to brainstorm the three items:

Questions:

· How can Disney+ differentiate itself and all its franchises from competing rivals in the marketplace?

· What digital and social media marketing trends would you recommend that Disney+ implement to stay ahead of the competition?

We want to hear your opinions so please try to post more than the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM of 3 times in this weekly conversations. Here’s a set of recommendations:

· Try to post your initial post on Monday or Tuesday (no later than Wednesday)

· Try to post at least 2 responses (absolute minimum requirement) to other students on separate days of the week
