2015 Year in Review

Top 3 Best Marketed Companies

Amazon

Their marketing strategy was to be relatable and offer convenience to their customers and it was very effective. Their ads were extremely empathetic and engaging, and made logical reasons why their products (like the fire TV and the echo) are the best for the average American.

Bose

This company was successful by partnering with many big retail stores like best buy, amazon, target, Costco, and hhgregg. They also used strong statements saying you haven't really heard music until you've used bose to make their products more appealing and seem like a necessity.

FitBit

This company became very popular this year because they used the average person's want and need to become healthier and fitter. They encourage exercise in an easily accessible way in their ads and this is very appealing to customers of many ages.

New Year's Resolutions for 2016

Personal Improvement

I will be more positive about school work and other duties (rehearsals, gymnastics, track, chores) for the year.

Family and Friends

I will make more time for them as much as I can in this year's busy schedule.

School

I will complete my assignments as soon as possible rather than waiting until the last minute.
