Marketing Comparison: International and Domestic
Australia and the United States
As defined by the American Marketing Association,'Marketing is an organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders' (AMA, 2004, 2). The definition is applied to any product, business firm'in any targeted country.
Marketing is the core of any business venture. Two basic functions are derived from marketing: 1) to retain and sustain present customer base, and 2) to develop new and/or improved customer relations. Focusing on these two aspects is the essence of marketing. The plan for why, whom, how, and when'surrounding the product, service, or idea' all develop and stem from marketing ideas and concepts. Marketing is a process, a plan developed to identify, foresee, and satisfy customer needs and desires'no matter the product or service, the business, or the country. Whether the market is a domestic or international venue, marketing activities are essentially the same; however, must be tailored to the unique attributes of the product and the country of target.

Mercadeo es un proceso, un plan desarrollado para identificar, prever y satisfacer las necesidades y deseos de los clientes, sin importar el producto o servicio, el negocio o el país. Ya sea el mercado doméstico o terreno internacional, las actividades de mercadeo son esencialmente las mismas; sin embargo, deben ser adaptadas a los atributos únicos del producto y el país del mercado meta.

... Comparison on Public Health and Community Health. Shelly Shew NUR/408 October 29, 2012 Kim Oatman Comparison on Public Health and Community Health Nursing. This paper will reflect the history of public health and significant events related to these agencies. The difference between public and community health will be acknowledged. Also information included on county, state, and national public health resources. There has been measurable growth and expansion over the years in regard to public health and its creation. Identification of Public health goes as far back as the 14th century. Towns and cities created a system known as quarantine to deter the bubonic plague (Black Death). Travelers and merchandise from places known to carry infections put in isolation. This procedure was in use until the 19th century to protect the public from the smallpox, syphilis, and cholera epidemics. Public health established services in 1798 as the Marine Hospital Service. This came about by early efforts of the federal government to provide health care to merchant seamen, protecting seaport cities from epidemics. In 1813 charitable services started by the Ladies Benevolent Society of Charleston, South Carolina, health care to the sick and poor. Another step toward the improvement of public health was the creation of the American Medical Association in 1847. Shortly after their existence this group formed a hygiene committee to conduct sanitary surveys and to develop a system to......

A Comparison

...A Comparison of Values In today’s society, having a moral obligation to others is essential when interacting with individuals or growing a successful organization as Kudler Fine Foods. Valuing and respecting individuals creates an environment in which everyone can live and work together in a more harmonious environment. Upon completing the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self assessment, reflecting on the results and my own personal values, I believe that Kudler Fine Foods and I possess similar values and moral obligations. As a manager of Kudler Fine Foods my ability to perform my duties that coincide with my values would allow me to further the growth of the organization and create an environment that is both positive to all stakeholders at Kudler Fine Foods. According to the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory self assessment my ethical profile was said to be most closely aligned with Obligation. I have always believed that it is my obligation to do what is morally right. The assessment summarized me as believing everyone has a right to individual respect, which in most cases is true and I do believe that most people have a right to individual respect. However, when individuals fail to respect others, the right to individual respect is no longer a right. I do have a strong belief that in order to become a person of good moral character I have to do what is right for not only me but others around me. The self assessment was insightful, and I do...

...Analogy The clear message from the writer here is that caress Cashmere Luxury Body Wash will stimulate your senses. The feel and smell will be luxurious and extraordinary. The analogy is Cashmere Luxury Body Wash compared to being wrapped in a silky soft pashmina surrounded by the blend of white orchid milk and warm vanilla essence. Incidentally, ‘pashmina’ is said to be the finest cashmere wool. It would be difficult to say that this is a strong comparison. Cashmere wool, vanilla and orchid milk are a tough sell when compared to body wash. On the other hand, the comparison does provoke a strong desire to actually be wrapped in pashmina while inhaling the warm essence of vanilla and orchid milk, white orchid milk nonetheless. The smooth supple feel of the body wash could be compared to the feel of cashmere. Textures are easily compared so I could imagine the feeling on the skin may be similar. Fragrances too can be duplicated and used in perfumes, shampoos, and body washes. A direct and believable association can be made there. Vanilla is a somewhat familiar fragrance as it is used in cooking as well. Orchid milk however, is another story. I suppose orchids are popular and may be a recognizable smell. Orchid milk though perhaps not so recognizable. I think perhaps the figure of speech could relate more specifically to cashmere as opposed to pashmina. Cashmere is more recognizable when referring to fine wool. Perhaps the reference to orchid milk is to compare the......

While as a professional counselor in Texas, applicants must have 300 clock-hours of supervised practicum experience, 100 hours direct client counseling contact, and an internship must be present on your official transcript. One of the first things that you will notice on the application form, is the checklist. On this checklist, that the nursing application does not have or require, there is a slot for your supervisor agreement form and renewal card. After reading the two application forms, I noticed that the major difference between nursing and professional counselor application, is that the professional counselor application requires you to have......

...Career Comparison for Accountants and Financial Analysts Prepared for Sara Ray Prepared by Career Consultant June 16, 2013 LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL Sara Ray 123 Brookside Dr. Holbrook, NJ 75486-1256 June 21, 2013 Dear Sara, Here is the report you requested on June 1st for a comparison between of a career as an accountant and a financial analyst. Based off our conversation, we took your interests and previous work experience into consideration as we compared specific criteria between these two careers. While working for your previous employer as a junior accountant, you show your ability for detail and organization. An accountant must possess these skills as well as the ability to work independently. I also gathered from our conversation that you are not one to handle a tremendous amount of pressure well. As a financial analyst, this is a skill that is required. You could be faced with many deadlines that could be very stressful. Your education course of study was also included to compare to the education requirements of each career and even though there are many similarities between the two, there are many differences. For example, both careers require good written and oral comprehension but an accountant needs to have excellent mathematic skills and be able to choose the right formula to solve a problem. This skill is not as important as a financial analyst as is the ability to develop solutions to complex problems that need to be solved....

...functional capabilities of four ASW packages identified by the MoF (FreeBalance, Navision, Oracle, and SAP) based on various sources of the vendors as published in late 2005. Latest versions of these ASW modules can be found in related web sites. 1 1. LIST OF ANALYZED ASW This summary was generated based on the open and available information on the considered Information Systems and vendors. The summary contains the most well-known specialized software that is designed for automated accounting of Treasury budget execution, as well as the most well-known ERP-systems (Enterprise Resource Planning) that can be relatively easily customized to realize the requirements of particular accounting tasks. It must be noted that the direct comparison of specialized ASW and ERP-systems is not fully correct as both systems classes have their advantages and drawbacks. Specialized systems are superior to ERP-systems in meeting the specific functional requirements but are usually greatly inferior to the latter in terms of overall system realization. ERP-systems implementation entails lesser financial risks due to greater financial stability of such SW manufacturers. The quality of maintenance offered by ERP-systems manufacturers is usually higher due to developed network of branches and authorized centers in various countries. Analyzed specialized ASW: − FreeBalance eFinancials (FreeBalance Software). List of analyzed ERP-systems: − − − Microsoft Navision (Microsoft Corporation);......

...Comparison between California and Texas There are many things to consider and compare when deciding to move to another location. One has to consider the climate, cultures, economics, crime rate, and agriculture. Some states are so different, they don’t seem like they’re in the same country. Many people move to California or Texas for the vast opportunities. The climates in California range from cool wintry weather in the north, to sunny and hot weather in the south. Texas weather changes from hot to rainy and sometimes too cold with some areas with sleet and snow. Californians take pride in their location, and they are proud to live in one of the most diverse places in the continent of the United States. The environment plays a role in attracting good employees and keeping them healthy. Forbes in 2007 ranked California as the 14th greenest state in the nation, and gave Texas a rank of 34. The publication based its ranking on such factors as energy consumption and pollution ( news). The housing in California is a lot more expensive than in Texas. There’s no point relocating to another state if your employees can’t find a place to live.

...syllabus. The insufficent economic resources make it difficult for the public universities to maintain high standard of education. The lack of funds is due to the less tution fee in the public institutes and the misallocation of the resources in annual budget. Public universities across Sindh including Karachi University, NED University of Engineering and Technology and Federal Urdu University of Arts suspended classes due to the budget deficit of Higher Education Commission . On the other hand most of the private universities although claiming to be non-profit organizations are earning huge profits by running them.This is because they have tranformed from educational to commercial hubs. They are taking large sums of money as tution fees in comparison with public universities but there is little which they are doing to improve the curriculum or to gain recognition.The problem of limited funds available is worsened by the mismanagement of available resources which is mainly due to corruption. The educational standards and practices of the public university differs from that of the private universities in many respects. With the exception of some big names like UET, LUMS etc, other private as well as public universities are often negligent towards improving the curriculum.The public universities are recognized whereas many private universities have not gained the recognition yet. The public universities have to stuggle hard with their budget than does the private......

...Comparison among the monopoly and oligopoly Competition in the market. A monopoly market contains a single firm that produces goods with no close substitute, with significant barriers to entry of other firms. An A monopoly and an oligopoly are economic market structures where there is imperfect oligopoly market has a small number of relatively large firms that produce similar but slightly different products. Again, there are significant barriers to entry for other enterprises. In a monopoly, the seller charges high prices for the goods because there is no competition. In an oligopoly, the prices are moderate due to the presence of competition. However, they are higher than they would be in perfect competition. Barriers to entry in a monopoly market are high due to technology, high capital requirement, government regulation, patents and high distribution overheads. In an oligopoly market, the barriers to entry are high due to the economies of scale. A monopoly draws power from the fact that it is the only viable seller of the product in the industry. However, in an oligopoly, firms can influence the market by setting their prices, marketing strategies and customer service. In oligopoly, firms may collude rather than compete. The cooperation makes them operate as though they were one firm. This changes the market structure from being an oligopoly to a monopoly. There must be some measure of competition in an oligopoly market structure. The geographical size of the......

...Comparison Matrix Paper Nyenye Matthews Grand Canyon University: RES-811 June 8, 2016 Comparison Matrix Paper At first thought, the journey of completing a doctoral program can be scary, nerve wrecking and/or cause you to have anxiety especially when faced with having to decide on a topic for your dissertation before you even start class. All of these feelings eventually subside once the newly doctoral learner starts their first course. The purpose of this paper is to compare three empirical articles on the topic of doctoral identity. Weidman & Stein (2003) wanted “to examine the relationship among an academic department’s informal structures and the socialization of doctoral students to the scholar role as reflected in their level of participation in scholarly activities”. Baker & Lattuca (2010), sought “to develop an interdisciplinary approach to the study of doctoral education as a path to the professoriate”. Visser, Visser & Schlosser (2003), investigated “critical thinking as a disciplined manner of thought which a person uses to assess the validity of something”. These articles address three different ways of how a doctoral learner can find their doctoral identity. Comparison of Research Questions Even though each study asked different research questions, it seems as though each group of authors developed research questions based on the same idea in mind; to determine if “Socialization of doctoral students to academic norms, developmental......
