Three Companies That Marketed Themselves The Best in 2015

1. Lokai is a brand that marketed themselves very well this past year. Before several months ago I had never herd of this brand, but now most every teenager is wearing their bracelets. They are very trendy and have also created specialized bracelets that relate to what is going on currently in the world and also based on the time of year. These bracelets have become a very popular accessory and the way Lokai marketed them is the reason why they have been so successful.

2. Starbucks is also a really well marketed company. Everyone has heard of this coffee company and how well it has done, but this past year they have really excelled. Competitors of Starbucks like Dunkin' Donuts and Peet's Coffee have been growing but Starbucks has found ways to always be ahead. They created an app that allows for customers to feel important and essential to their business which is a great marketing technique.

3. Another company that marketed themselves well in 2015 was Chipotle. This Mexican grill has grown tremendously this past year throughout America. They have expanded their restaurants to make it easily accessible for their customers which helps a lot. They created social media sites and their customer service is very good. Chipotle is an easy grab-and-go grill that is getting more popular every day because of the way they have marketed themselves.

Best 2 Movies of 2015

1. The Longest Ride is one of the best movies of 2015. Like all movies, it was marketed on TV's as commercials and also in the mall as billboards and near the AMC Theaters. However, their trailer was very eye-catching which lead to more viewers becoming interested in the movie.

2. Pitch Perfect 2 is also one of my favorite movies of 2015. It is a sequel to the first Pitch Perfect which already brings back the crowd that fell in love with it in the first place giving it an edge. Not only that but its advertisements on TVs, malls, billboards, and social media allowed for it to get to the public much faster.

Top Two Musical Artists of 2015

1. Justin Bieber had the best year for musicians in 2015. One of the biggest reasons is that he come back from very difficult and messy times and was able to recreate his image to the public by having appearances of talk shoes like Ellen. Not only that but he released a new album named Purpose which has given him an even bigger raise in the eye of the public.

2. Taylor Swift also had a great past year. She has always been at the top of the billboards and is very loved in the hearts and eyes of the public because of her great music and bubbly personality. She appears on many talk shows and charity events which helps her image tremendously.
