These companies use marketing techniques such as branding, relationship marketing and growth matrix. Branding Branding is very important to marketing because it helps establish a product in a market and build the brand. Most brands have certain things that make them noticeable like a logo or a slogan for example Samsung has their name in bold writing on their products like phones and TV’s and Sainsbury also use their name they do this so people will know what product they have, is known for its orange colour and name also one of their many slogans “live well for less” they have been massively successful, their logo is recognized very in the U.K. Sainsbury’s has made strong uses of is the color and text. The color and text is smooth and comforting, and when these colors are seen, they make you think of Sainsbury’s which make customers think that of their cheap and good quality products. All Sainsbury’s products have the logo on it even the bags so when someone has a Sainsbury’s product they know that their product are from Sainsbury’s and therefore it acts as advertising which is very successful. Both companies take their branding very seriously and both have similar logos however consumers recognise Sainsbury’s most of the time because of their colour and slogan * Live well for less *...

Btec Business Level 3 Unit 3 P1 M1 D1

...P1 Marketing is perhaps the most important activity in a business because it has a direct effect on profitability and sales. Larger businesses will dedicate specific staff and departments for the purpose of marketing. It is important to realise that marketing cannot be carried out in isolation from the rest of the business. For example, the marketing section of a business needs to work closely with operations, research and development, finance and human resources to check their plans are possible. Operations will need to use sales forecasts produced by the marketing department to plan their production schedules. Sales forecasts will also be an important part of the budgets produced by the finance department, as well as the deployment of labour for the human resources department and then finally a research and development department will need to work very closely with the marketing department to understand the needs of the customers and to test outputs of the R&D section. The basic concept of marketing is that it enabled the company to identify the needs of their customers and produce products and services to satisfy those needs. By doing this, the customer is the most focus of the business when decision making is in process. A business that does this is marketing-orientated. The production concept is where a business mainly focuses on creating economies of scale in production and distribution of a product or service. This assumes that customers will purchase lower-priced......

P1 Describe Forms of Abuse Which May Be Experienced by Adults

...In this piece of writing I am describing form of abuse which adults have or may experience within their adulthood. What is abuse? Abuse is a word that is frequently used. It is a word defined as any type of actions that intentionally harms or injures yourself or others. It is a violation of rights of a human and their rights. Physical abuse Physical abuse is the infliction of harm or injury by another person. Physical abuse within the adult subject can happen in either gender. The injuries can be caused through punching, kicking, biting, burning, using a weapon or harmful object, and often actions that are involved within bullying. Once the physical abuse has been done, the aftermath can result in bruises, broken bones and many other reactions. For example; When working in a care home, care workers might lose their temper quite rapidly. This could be the cause of a resident being difficult. However, in some situations the care workers are often blamed for the abuse or any aftermath such as bruising, but in reality the residents are accidentally knocking themselves and sometimes bruising comes up quite visible due to the elderly having sensitive skin. However this is sometimes not the case. Quite often cases of abuse, physical abuse more than likely are disputed due to the care worker hitting or taking some kind of action which the resident doesn’t deserve just to make them be quiet or because the care worker becomes quite frustrated and physical with that resident.......

P2: Describe Indicators That Abuse May Be Happening to Adults

...P2: Describe indicators that abuse may be happening to adults. Abuse may be revealed in a number of different ways. For example you may find that someone wants to tell you about it because they trust you. Also it might be from someone who has observed the abuse taking place, e.g. resident seeing a care worker shaking another resident because they were too slow getting dressed. The abuse is disclosed to the professional, sometimes with a request for confidentiality. Unexplained injuries A medical opinion is required to label if an injury is non-accidental or accidental. For example, an injury may result from a fall but it may not be clear whether the fall was the result of a push or an accidental trip. However, there are some clear indicators such as fingermark bruises on the upper arm that show that the person has been grabbed and may have been shaken. Bruising around the mouth may be the result of force feeding. Burns from cigarettes and scalding, as result of being placed in a bath with water that is too hot, are more obvious. Unexplained cuts or scar tissue is unexpected places, of forming patterns, may indicate either abuse by others or self-harm as a reaction against being abused. Malnourishment in an individual who has been in a 24 hour care environment, like a care home or hospital, shows itself in terms of unexplained weight loss and dehydration and is a clear indicator of neglect. This may be the result of poor care and attention. Poor hygiene Poor personal......

...News report P2 The following news report concerns the unethical behaviour coming from a leading oil company that is Chevron. It is reported they are currently causing extreme damage to the environment in Ecuador as a result of their bad practises. We have been informed that more than 18 billion gallons of toxic wastewater has been dumped in the areas surrounding their operations, there have also been reports of around 17 million gallons of crude oil being spilt alongside vast amounts of hazardous waste being left in open pits in the forest floor; all in a bid for Chevron to save money. These practises did not meet industry standards and are illegal in both Ecuador and the US. Chevron is now on the run from the Ecuadorian courts as they are required to pay $9.5 billion dollars to pay for the clean-up and remediation of the Amazon Jungle. The Ecuadorians have filed law suits in Canada and Brazil to seek seizure of Chevrons assets. The results of this unethical behaviour will impact many, such as the communities living in Ecuador, the shareholders and their sponsors alongside many more. The communities living in the affected areas will be impacted most, it is reported that there has been a wave of mouth, stomach and uterine cancer, birth defects and spontaneous miscarriages that have come across the indigenous people. As a result of this pressure groups such as the ‘chevrontoxico’ group and amazon watch have begun campaigning to raise awareness of the illegal and......

...Business Ownership P1 Organisation 1 – NHS The NHS is a national public sector health service maintained and paid for by the UK. The NHS was founded in 1948 in an attempt by the then heath secretary, Aneurin Bevan, to bring good healthcare to all. It was founded to provide affordable healthcare to the citizens of the UK who need it. Today the NHS has a very good reputation as it continues to provide good healthcare to those in need, they currently employ over 1.6 million government people to achieve this endeavour. The NHS is a national business as it only operates in the UK and only provides its services to those living in the UK. It only operates in the tertiary sector as they provide a service for the public but do not manufacture, sell or harvest raw materials. Because it is a public business it doesn’t make a profit instead it uses it’s funding to help with the financial burden of medical procedures. There are down sides to this for example the NHS don’t always have the most up to date equipment. Because the service is maintained and paid for by the government they are the ones that will be held liable for any problems with the way the NHS runs or if it overspends. The NHS is limited by their annual budget for the year 2015 their budget was £115 Billion.
