2015 Year In Review

By Travis Erbe

Three Companies that best marketed themselves

1. Beats marketed themselves extremely well, by featuring on commercials athletes like Lebron James, Cam Newton. Beats deserves credit for making headphones that are more inspired by fashion culture than audio culture.

2 .Nike has realized that the purchase of a Nike product isn't the end of the marketing cycle. They are creating not only products but services to keep people engaged and using their products. They use public social media channels like Facebook and Twitter to raise awareness.

3. Apple is always on top for the latest technologic devices, Apple has recently came out with the Apple Watch, which was a major hit.The company is now defining itself more broadly than being just a devices company. It has blended its digital content services (Apple Music, iTunes, and App Store) to be a key part of the value proposition to Apple device owners.
