My name is blank. I am currently studying business at Waterford Collage . As part of my Marketing Practice Module I am required to select a product and analyse the Marketing Mix in relation to the product. The product I have selected is Pringles. I chose to do my project on Pringles as they have a very interesting packaging design and they are one of the leading providers of potatoes crisps.
Firstly I will present an overview of Pringles then I will examine the Marketing Mix used by Pringles. There are four elements of the Marketing Mix, these are, Product, Price, Promotion and Place.
In the product section I will define the Product Life Cycle and determine where Pringles are positioned on the Life Cycle. I will then examine Pringles brand name and the packaging that they use. In the section on price, I will discuss the importance of price and suggest what pricing method I think Pringles adopt. For the promotional section of the Marketing Mix I will examine how Pringles promote and create awareness of their product. Lastly for the section on Place I will investigate the distribution channels used by Pringles.
