B – This is Level 3; they develop not only financial and structural bonds, but they create structural bonds to add value that other firms can’t offer 11. C 12. A – Mass communication aims to target large audiences, therefore there is more noise (anything that interferes or distorts the communication message) and a lower reception level. 13. B – Competitive, mature products will use persuasive promotion in order to encourage brand switching, and aims to convert brand users into loyal customers. 14. A – Informative promotion; this is new product in the introductory product life cycle and a commercial that explains how to use the product is necessary to explain to people what their product is about 15. B – The goal of sales promotion is to drive immediate purchases and to influence behavior, while advertising gives consumers a reason to buy their product by informing them of their imbalance between their present state and desired state 16. C – Sales promotion includes things like contests, free samples, sweepstakes, vacation getaways, and coupons in order to complement other advertising and boost sales. 17. A – personal selling is used for products with a high value, technically complex, custom made, and very few customers. It can be a face-to-face interaction, a presentation, or an over-the-phone conversation. 18. D – Attention: the marketer must first get the target market’s attention about the product. Interest: Interest in the product is important if marketers want the product to sell.

A – Skimming pricing; a firm charges a high introductory price. This is effective for products that have an inelastic demand, are unique, or when there is legal protection of the product. 24. A – penetration pricing sets prices relatively low in hopes of gaining a mass audience. This is effective for products with a high sales volume, mass production, little room to adjust prices, not for prestige products. 25. E – When the inflation rate is high, consumers are price sensitive, therefore they find many uses and applications for other products making demand relatively elastic 26. E – When there are many substitutes for a product, if a price is too high for one product, they can easily switch to another, making demand elastic 27. I – When a product only has one use and there are no close substitutes (i.e. medicine), no matter how much it costs, consumers will still buy it, making demand inelastic 28. I – Gas, medicine, and surgical operations all have inelastic demand because they are necessary products 29.

C – Markup pricing does not directly analyze the direct cost of production but rather the cost of buying the product from the producer. *Note: this type of pricing is used by wholesalers and retailers; producers tend to use profit maximization to determine the price 32.
