From: Kate Sutherland, marketing director
To: Promotion team staff
Date: October 14th
Re: The launch of new air fresheners

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone for their hard work during the last week's promotional program, which began on October 3 and ended on October 10. The promotional program distributed complimentary cans of air fresheners and 10% discount coupons for our products, valid until November 14th, to potential consumers in exchange for their participation in our survey. The survey consisted of 15 feedback questions for each of our new scents: Luscious Lilac, Fresh Freesia, and Sweet Sensation.

The following points summarize typical consumer opinions:

1. Most of the customers evaluated Fresh Freesia as too weak. They felt that the fragrance evaporated within an hour and recommended that we add more durability to the scent.
2. Many customers rated the product designs as attractive.
3. The most popular scent was Sweet Sensation and the least was Luscious Lilac.

We will be holding a meeting to talk over the survey results, more specifically on improving the Fresh Freesia. The specific time and place for the meeting will be made known by my secretary soon.

157. Why was this memo written?

Miterminator - A mite vacuum cleaner

The Miterminator instantly vacuums away parasitic mites, reducing itchiness, and skin rash during the humid and hot summer days. The Miterminator consists of a rotating brush that helps the vacuuming process and an antifungal filter cartridge which effectively catches both mites and their eggs. Regular change of the filter is necessary for hygienic use. Normally, filter cartridges should be replaced after six months of use and for the convenience of our customers, five extra filter cartridges are included. The filter cartridges will turn blue to indicate an appropriate time for a change. The brush should also be washed after every use with a special liquid cleaner that comes with the product.

The Miterminator is also equipped with a UV switch that, once turned on, emits UV rays to completely exterminate not only mites but also microbes. A feature that has been added to the previous version of the Miterminator, it makes certain that no mite is left on blankets and couches to ensure a pleasant, itch-free summer.

Subject: Product defect
Date: March 10

The executive committee has decided to make some major changes in the production line after over a thousand calls have come in over our latest product, the TH-A310. A mold which shapes the coupling part of the robotic arm seems to have had a technical problem since last week. The products manufactured during this period have all been reported as defective, and the company had to make immense refunds for the faulty goods. It is imperative that the production line be corrected in the shortest time possible to regain credit and reinforce brand image.

The executive committee requests that you clarify and report the cause of the failure and devise a way to overcome the present issue. The committee has also authorized you to build a temporary production line to offset the losses of last week if necessary. Please have those tasks finished before this Thursday.

A new trend in agriculture: organic goods

As North America and Europe grew through the Industrial Revolution, their agriculture sector has completely transformed small-sized farms to commercialized, large-scale ones that cultivate massive amounts of crops. Small farmers across the world can rarely compete against industrialized farms. Such commercialization instigated mega-sized agribusinesses to employ reckless means, such as using excessive amount of pesticides, to expand their business. In the 1980s, just over 150 agribusinesses produced crops that feed the whole North American and European population.

However, small-sized farms are coming back because of the increased concern modern society has about industrialized crop production. As more and more people look for organic farm produce, local farmers are taking their proximity to consumers as an advantage in selling organic crops. These farmers have started to maximize their profit by creating networks among themselves and using them to create small stores within a community. By marketing the stores' proximity and healthiness, they are able to rake in a lucrative profit.

Large agribusinesses were able to supply their products to almost every supermarket they could find. But because small organic stores have limited space, their capacity to carry a variety of food products or supply them to other grocery stores is difficult. This is why many organic stores are opening websites for online shopping. Once an order is registered online, farmers can prepare the product right at their farms and deliver it to customers instead of doing so at their small, crowded stores. This service has proved to be popular, as working moms are able to shop for healthy food products conveniently at home.

Regarding the cost of not using pesticides, most organic farmers are relying on traditional methods that work well. Furthermore, most of the traditional methods are recognized by environmental organizations as safe for the environment. Many governments, understanding the advantages of small, organic farming, are publicly supporting it by building relevant institutions, sending out experts and campaigning.

177. What can be inferred about the agricultural structure of the West in the 1980s?
178. According to the article, what is implied about organic farming?
179. What is NOT listed as a government-supported project?

Date: Friday April 10
Subject: Questions regarding the shipping

To Whom It May Concern,

Last Monday, I ordered a king-sized bed (item number 217) and a small-sized cabinet (item number 345) from your website. On the website, it stated that delivery will take up 1 week, and consequently I expected to receive my shipment by Monday. However, it's Friday, and I still haven't got one of my orders yet.

I chose the products because it seemed to be of outstanding quality and durability and at an affordable cost. I also assumed that your company would be able to deliver them quickly. I am rather disappointed at this point. I believe I should have gotten a notice beforehand if there were a problem with the delivery. I hope I get may shipment as soon as possible.

Dear Mr. Ralph,

I apologize for the delay in delivery. I have checked your order and found that item number 217 was out of tock until this Wednesday and the item number 345 was on back order but it was properly delivered. It is our fault for not listing the appropriate status of items on our website. I sent the bed along with two complimentary pillows on Wednesday afternoon via express delivery service. You should get them next Monday.

As a result of this experience, I have talked to the customer service team. I have also enclosed a coupon for your next purchase, giving you a 20% discount and free shipping on your next purchase.

Once again, I apologize for the inconvenience. If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected] com or at 655-239-0006. I will be more than pleased to help you.

Đoạn văn 1:

This report is produced by professors at Bridge Johnson University an August 25

The survey was conducted to research each region's preference over certain men's clothes and to use the results as a future marketing strategy. The research was conducted between July 20 and August 20 in major malls throughout Brazil. The results show which brands are favored over other brands.

Fitch and Rock Republic each represent luxury and affordable casual clothes brands, respectively, while BC for Men and John & Deer's each represent expensive and reasonable priced business clothes brands, respectively.

Findings

Casual clothes brands were popular in the western and eastern regions of the country, while business clothes brands dominated the northern and southern regions. For example, sales of Fitch in eastern regions were two times higher than in northern areas. This result demonstrates that there are customer preferences over certain brands by regions.

Although there are more business clothes brand sales in northern and southern regions, it must be taken into account that these preferences might change by seasons also. To accommodate these changes, additional research will be conducted on December 10.

It seems that consumers in the north and south of the country spent more on business clothes due to geographic characteristics. The majority of Fortune 500 companies are located in these regions, implying that workers will have to wear more formal clothing to the workplace. Unlike the north and south, the west and east are known for their highly developed entertainment areas.

Dear Mr. Rajoul,

I have received your urgent request of a potential marketing team member and found the right employee for the task. I believe that Mike McCain would be a suitable candidate for your department. Although he has only worked for three years in our finance department, he has demonstrated strong communication skills and expertise in marketing. In fact, it was his suggestion that convinced marketing managers to advertise our revenue in TV commercials. He also started his master's degree in marketing two years ago. He is completing his degree this coming May, equipping him with perfect knowledge and skills to get into a marketing career. If you have more questions, I will be happy to assist you.
