Create a new consumer product.
Define your target market.
Select a song and an endorser for your campaign, and explain the rationale behind your choices.


Marketers have to be innovative when it comes to promoting any type of product. Analyzing and selecting a positioning strategy can mean the difference between success and failure for a new or existing product. In this discussion I will attempt to create a new consumer product, define my target market and an endorser for my campaign and explain the rationale behind my choices and discuss my competition and how we are both poised to compete and differentiate.
I believe I have an outstanding idea for a new and innovative product. What is the next best thing from virtual reality? The answer to the question is augmented reality. We see augmented reality used in video games, movies and real world situations. My idea for a new and innovative product is augmented technology within contact lenses. With augmented reality technology and contact lenses, individuals will be able to program directions using GPS to help them go places. The way it can work is while they are driving, the names of the streets will pop up in each intersection giving directions on where to turn and how far the destination is. If they are in an unfamiliar area and would like to know what stores are in the location, they can program the contact lens to have names of stores pop up in the direction they are looking. I have seen this technology work on cellular phones, so why not contact lens?
I am sure that the military would also love to get hold of this type of technology and so for military purposes, satellite imagery wirelessly sent to these contact lenses to show how far enemies are from their positions and exactly where they are located. I know that there are assassination missions when it comes to the FBI, CIA,…...

...The “P” in SCAMPER refers to refers to “put to other uses” meaning how to put the current solution, product, or process to other purposes or uses, or what to reuse from somewhere else to solve the problem at hand. One classical manifestation of putting to other use is finding an alternative market for a product when one market dries up, or seeking a new client when the contract with one client terminates. Typical questions in brainstorming to this effect include: What are the other markets for a product? What other outputs can this process generate? Where else can this process find deployment? Who else can use this product or service, and for what purpose? How many different ways does this product find use? Will this product work in other places? Who else finds this product useful? How to enhance the value of the product without changing the intended use? Are there completely different uses for any product?  Some manufacturers have figured out that there are multiple uses and have built advertising campaigns around these “non-traditional” uses.  WD-40 and duct tape have web sites devoted to the myriad “other uses” for their products.  One of the large soft drink manufacturers has sponsored a cook-off for recipes that use their product as an ingredient.

Froggies is presented to customers directly, or in restaurants. This product has big advantages, instead of eating exported frogs; customers have the choice of eating locally sourced and fresh frogs. In addition to that, frogs have an important nutritional value. Did you know that frogs have a quite similar nutritional value to chicken meat? In addition, the frog farming is the first project of its kind implemented in Lebanon. And since it offers people a new product, it is therefore necessary to study a very effective marketing as an example of advertising in magazines and on billboards, in order to attract more people to buy this product and broaden the distribution to reach other countries.
