“Choose a novel or okay in which a minor character serves as a foil to a main character. Then. “Choose a novel or okay in which a minor character serves as a foil to a main character. Then.

“Choose a novel or okay in which a minor character serves as a foil to a main character. Then write an essay in which you analyze how the relation between the minor character and the major character illuminates the meaning of the work.” The novel I chose is Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein. The essay only needs to be four paragraphs, an intro, two heavy body paragraphs, and a conclusion. I use APEPE (answer, proof, explain, proof, explain, summary) for my body paragraphs. The proofs are quotes from the novel and the explains needs to be an in depth analysis of those quotes. I’ve already written about half of it, but I still need more to first body and I need my second body and conclusion. Here is what I have so far, feel free to make any revisions.
“Mary Shelly’s horror, science fiction novel, Frankenstein, centers around Victor Frankenstein, a mad scientist who created a living, sentient creature using disembodied body parts and high voltage electricity. Characterization plays a crucial part in the book, with victor being a highly intelligent yet self centered individual, and his creature filled with angst and hatred for himself and the world around him. With such strong characterization, the usage of foil characters, such as Henry Clerval is a must. Henry’s existence illuminates the main themes of the novel by emphasizing Victor’s unpleasant traits while bringing out a better side of him.
To start, Henry Clerval is Victor Frankenstein’s best friend who is just as knowledgeable as Frankenstein. Clerval shares Frankenstein’s ambition for acknowledgement and fame, the main difference is that these goals are paired with a compassionate and empathetic nature. For instance, after abandoning his creature and reuniting with Clerval, Victor says, “Clerval called forth the better feelings of my heart; he again taught me to love the aspect of nature, and the cheerful faces of children. Excellent friend!”. Victor’s reckless abandonment of his creation followed by Clerval’s invitation to enjoy the simpler things in life like the beauty of nature perfectly shows the juxtaposition between the two individuals. In addition, Clerval tends to bring out a better side of Victor Frankenstein by being an empathetic and virtuous man. For example,”[supanova_question]

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

I do NOT tolerate cheating. Students are responsible for understanding the RU Academic Integrity Policy (http://academicintegrity.rutgers.edu/). I will strongly enforce this Policy and pursue all violations. On all examinations and assignments, students must sign the RU Honor Pledge, which states, “On my honor, I have neither received nor given any unauthorized assistance on examinations or assignments.” [I will screen all written assignments through SafeAssign or Turnitin, plagiarism detection services that compare the work against a large database of past work.] Do not let cheating or plagiarism destroy your hard-earned opportunity to learn. See business.rutgers.edu/ai for more details.

***You must sign, date and post the statement on Canvas. You must also sign, date and post the statement on Canvas by Thursday, June 9th that you understand the guidelines and polices outlined in this course syllabus.

ATTENDANCE AND PREPARATION POLICY

Expect me to attend all class sessions. I expect the same of you. If I am to be absent, my department chair or I will send you notice via email and Canvas as far in advance as possible. If you are to be absent, report your absence in advance at https://sims.rutgers.edu/ssra/.

If your absence is due to religious observance, a Rutgers-approved activity, illness, business trip or family emergency/death and you seek makeup work, also send me an email with full details and supporting documentation within 5 days of your first absence.

Expect me to arrive on time for each class session. I expect the same of you. If you are going to be tardy, please notify me via e-mail and the reason.

Expect me to remain for the entirety of each class session. I expect the same of you. If you have to leave early, please let me valid reason (business meeting, family emergency, etc.) before the start of class so I can plan accordingly.

Expect me to prepare properly for each class session. I expect the same of you. Complete all background reading and assignments. You cannot learn if you are not prepared.

Expect me to participate fully in each class session. I expect the same of you. You can’t learn if you are not paying attention.

If you are unable to attend the class meetings be sure to contact me beforehand to discuss your absence. I suggest that you use a “buddy” system to ensure that if you miss a class that you get the appropriate notes from the lecture. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to me to schedule an appointment during my office hours. If you are unable to meet with me during office hours, we can plan to schedule for an alternate day and time.

Please note that all assignments are to be completed using Microsoft Office (Word and PowerPoint)

For school emergencies, consult the campus home page. Please also check Canvas because I might be posting additional information regarding the emergency and class materials for that day.

CLASSROOM CONDUCT

Both individual’s participation in class and on his or her assigned team will be considered for course evaluation. Anonymous individual feedback from your team members via Survey Monkey will be considered, but I will make the final decision based on my observations.

Usually, in an in-person course, I ask students to select their own team. Since we are operating in a remote environment, I will select your team. If a student strongly desires to be placed on another team, that will be allowed only if a member from another team volunteers to switch teams with the student requesting such a change. No team changes will be allowed after the second class.

If you miss two or more classes without informing me in advance and without good reason, your overall class participation grade will be negatively impacted. Treat it as your job. If you don’t show up to work without a valid excuse, you can’t expect to keep your job for long. I do understand that there are circumstances that may require you to miss a class, such as an urgent business meeting, so informing me in advance will help you here (see approved excuses under attendance policy above), but does NOT remove your responsibility for all assigned work.

PLEASE NOTE: Cellphones and other electronic devices should be shut off during our online live class. Please make sure to mute your line during the live lecture unless you are asked to speak during a class discussion or team presentation. Outside noise will make the learning experience less than optimal for everyone. Also, feel free to share with me your thoughts on how I can make this remote setting more comfortable. I will be happy to make some adjustments to improve the learning experience for everyone.

Article Critiques This paper requires you to obtain a marketing article from one of the business journals listed in the syllabus, summarize the content of the marketing article and apply the marketing strategy concepts from the lecture slides and readings in four typed pages, double-spaced 12 point Times New Roman. You will be graded on your ability to summarize the pertinent issues raised in the article and how well you articulate /apply marketing strategy concepts from class to the article critique. A copy of the article must be uploaded to Canvas along with your summary paper. If you have questions as to the suitability of your chosen article, you can ask me to review it before you write your paper.

The following is a list of magazines where you can find articles. You can also find marketing articles in the Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur magazine and online from your local newspaper or general news sources. This is NOT an exhaustive list, but you should be able to find an article. You can also check with the business library’s online magazine source as well. **Choose an article that interests you and relates to marketing. ** It is an individual assignment not a group assignment. Ten points will be deducted each day the assignment is late.

Final Team Presentation: Each team will do a re-branding of a major brand in the form of a marketing plan Powerpoint presentation The duration of each team presentation is 40 minutes. The presentation will cover all major aspects of a marketing plan from SWOT analysis, marketing research to the marketing mix. A sample presentation template will be provided to show you how one is created.

Case Presentation: Each team will present one Harvard Case presentation to the entire class. The team will select the case and obtain approval from me before the start the process.

Class Participation (Discussion Posts, In-class team exercises): Class participation and attendance is vital for the successful completion of this course. Perfect attendance without verbal participation in discussions will NOT result in a good participation grade. This requirement is based on the fact that discussion/teamwork is essential in most business settings.

ATTENDANCE IS NOT EQUAL TO PARTICIPATION. Participation grades will be based on the instructor’s observation during online discussion groups and discussion posts. The quality of your comments and frequency of your comments are equally important. Online discussion groups will be conducted during our regularly scheduled Tuesday night class. The group activities will focus on discussion of cases and exercises that will apply to recently learned marketing concepts. Discussion Post questions will be posted several times via the Discussions section of Canvas. For each discussion post, you have to post one primary post up to 300 words in response to the questions that I provide and a secondary post up to 300 words in response to your classmate’s primary post (your choice who you want to respond to). Please refer to the posted assignment rubric for how you will be evaluated on discussion posts and refer to the course schedule for discussion post deadlines.

Special Exception

As with all graded assignments, a special exception can be made with the instructor for unusual circumstances, such as a family illness. It will be the obligation of the student to inform the instructor of the special circumstance. Once an exception is approved, the student must work with the instructor to complete the assignment(s).

CODE OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT

For the code of professional conduct, please refer to the following link:

https://myrbs.business.rutgers.edu/students/code-professional-conduct

Rutgers Business School is recognized for its high-quality education. To that end, maintaining the caliber of classroom excellence requires students to adhere to the same behaviors that are expected in professional career environments. These include the following principles:

Discussion and Correspondence

Each student is encouraged to take an active part in class discussions and activities. Substantive dialogue requires a degree of mutual respect, willingness to listen, and tolerance of opposing points of view. Disagreement and the challenging of ideas must happen in a supportive and sensitive manner. Hostility and disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.

In both correspondence and the classroom, students should demonstrate respect in the way they address instructors. Students should use proper titles in addressing instructors unless there is an explicit understanding that the instructor accepts less formal address. Similarly, appropriate formatting in electronic communication, as well as timely responsiveness, are all expectations in every professional interaction, including with instructors. Everything said and written should demonstrate respect and goodwill.

Punctuality and Disruption

Class starts and ends promptly at the assigned periods. Students are expected to be in their seats and ready to begin class on time.

Packing belongings before the end of class is disruptive to both other students and the instructor. Barring emergencies and within reason, students are expected to remain in their seats for the duration of the class.

Technology

The use of technology is sanctioned only as permitted by the course instructor. As research on learning shows, peripheral use of technology in classes negatively impacts the learning environment in three ways:

Individual learning and performance directly suffer, resulting in the systemic lowering of grades earned.

One student’s use of technology automatically diverts and captures other people’s attention, thus impeding their learning and performance. Moreover, even minor infractions have a spillover effect and result in others doing the same.

Subverting this policy (e.g., using a phone during class, even if hidden below the table; tapping on a smartwatch; using a laptop for non-course related matters) is evident to the course instructor and offensive to the principles of decorum in a learning environment.

Networking, computing, and associated resources in the trading rooms, advanced technology rooms, and general classrooms are to be used in the manner intended.

Sharing links to private online classes, attempting to join an online class that you are not enrolled in, or posting disruptive content during these sessions are strictly prohibited and may lead to disciplinary action.

For more instructions on information technology resources at Rutgers University, please refer to the Acceptable Use Policy for Information Technology Resources.

Misappropriating Intellectual Property

Almost all original work that is available to you is subject to claims of copyright by its creators or copyright holders. These copyright holders may include publishers, authors, professors, the University, RBS, and in some cases, your fellow students. The protected materials may include but are not limited to syllabi, recorded lectures, PowerPoint presentations, and other recorded, printed, or electronically stored media. These materials are only limited to completing the requirements of the class.

Unauthorized use includes such things as copying, sharing, forwarding, selling, renting, online posting, publication, or any other form of distribution of these materials without the written permission of the copyright holder. Such misconduct may potentially subject you to disciplinary action by the University, significant civil penalties, and even severe criminal sanctions.

For more instructions on copyright protections at Rutgers University, please refer to the Rutgers Libraries.

Rutgers Business School is committed to the highest standards of integrity. We value mutual respect and responsibility, as these are fundamental to our educational excellence both inside and outside the classroom.

In terms or style and/or content, compare two texts on which you didn’t write your first essay. (You can’t write about Orwell or the other essayist whose work you wrote about in your first essay.)
Don’t just summarize the two texts. Explain where they overlap and where they diverge. In the places where they meet (overlap), what differences exist? In the places where they diverge, explain why they do so. To make this explanantion, say what sends them on their separate trajectories.
General requirements:
It is best to structure the essay in a traditional way (i.e. the essay should have a clear introduction outlining the thrust of the essay, body paragraphs supporting the introduction, and a clear conclusion summarizing the whole, especially the developments the body paragraphs have made to the introduction). It is best to structure the individual body paragraphs similarly–i.e. individual paragraphs should begin by introducing the point central to the paragraph, make a point, and conclude by summarizing the paragraph’s overall point (1) write a general introduction to the subject(s) of a quote from the reading; 2) write an introduction to the quotation itself–this introduction should explain what the quote was doing in the reading; 3) quote from the text–surround this quotation with quotation marks, follow the quotation with a parenthetical citation (for example: “”A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that [they] writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus: What am I trying to say? What words will express it? What image or idiom will make it clearer? Is this image fresh enough to have an effect? And [they] will probably ask … two more: Could I put it more shortly? Have I said anything that is avoidably ugly?” (Orwell)”; 4) write an analysis explaining how the quote achieves its purpose or what you think of the quote; 5) write a conclusion explaining the connection between your analysis and your general introduction (see 1). These five parts (at least five sentences, though any of these parts might be more than a single sentence) make a body paragraph. Introductions should avoid broad generalities. Succinctness is desirable and wordiness should be avoided.

Stand-Alone Project: Establishing a Clothing Boutique (200 points)

This Stand-Alone Project is comprised of four (4) parts. Your Stand-Alone Project should be both grammatically and mechanically correct, and formatted using APA style. If there is a Part A, your response should identify a Part A, etc. In addition, you must appropriately cite all resources used in your response and document in a bibliography using APA style. (200 points) (A 10-page response is required for the combination of Parts A, B, C, and D.)

Part A You and Marsha, a good friend from your college days, have decided to open a trendy clothing boutique. You have found a location that looks promising and retained legal counsel to negotiate a lease with the landlord and prepare any paperwork you might be required to register the business with the state. Unfortunately, you cannot agree on how to set up your business. Marsha favors a partnership and you prefer to incorporate. The two of you schedule an appointment with your attorney to discuss the pros and cons of each, as well as other options that the two of you may have overlooked. In table format, summarize the advice your attorney provides for a general partnership, limited liability partnership, public corporation, and sub-chapter S corporation. His advice should include: tax ramifications, control considerations, liability, ease and expense of formation, transferability of ownership, and ease of expanding the business. Consult Chapters 16 and 17 of your textbook.

Part B You and Marsha realized after your last meeting with your attorney that you neglected to ask him about the duties you will owe each other if you decide to go with a general partnership formation. You schedule a second meeting with him. Summarize the duties and rights each of you has under a general partnership.

Part C Visit www.mycorporation.com. Watch the following very short videos that are available: LLC v. Corporation, Where Do I Incorporate, and What’s Next? Summarize the results of each video.

Part D Marsha envisions that down the road the two of you may wish to produce your own clothing line. She wants to manufacture the garments in China or India. You have reservations about expanding your operations outside the U.S. Locate five (5) scholarly articles that are devoted to the topic of expropriation risk, including creeping expropriation. Once you have compiled your articles, draft an argument in which you take a stance for or against manufacturing your clothing outside the U.S. You must support your opinion with evidence and research. In the event the research favors a country other than China or India, discuss your reasoning. Remember to consider the advantages/disadvantages of producing clothing made and sold in the USA. Your discussions should address environmental concerns and the impact outsourcing will have on American workers. Consult all relevant chapters of your textbook. Feel free to supplement your argument with case law reviewed in the textbook or case law you unearth during the course of your research.

Lesson 1 Project 1 Assessment Assignment: Personality Assessment (Big 5 +3) For

Lesson 1 Project 1 Assessment Assignment: Personality Assessment (Big 5 +3)

For this assignment you will need to complete and score a set of personality measures, as well as compute, compile, and analyze the scores.

Step 1. Making Predictions. Think about the relationship between the following 8 personality characteristics:

Stress
Self-Esteem
Overall Satisfaction with Life
Extroversion
Agreeableness
Conscientiousness
Negative Emotionality
Openness to Experience

Write down at least 3 predictions you might have about the relationships between any two of these variables. For example, you might predict the people who are more satisfied with life would have lower levels of stress, or that people who were more extroverted would have higher levels of self-esteem. Feel free to predict negative relationships, too (Life Satisfaction with Stress, or Openness to Experience with Introversion?). There are no right or wrong predictions; only hypotheses that you are going to put to the test!

Prediction #1 ________________________________________________________________

Prediction #2_________________________________________________________________

Prediction #3__________________________________________________________________

Step 2: Complete the Measures. Complete each of the following measures and enter your scores on the Score Sheet below in the first column that says, (1) Your Scores:

The Perceived Stress Scale:
https://das.nh.gov/wellness/Docs/PercievedStressScale.pdf

The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale

Step 3: Recruiting Other Participants. Ask seven (7) other friends, family members or peers to complete the same instruments and enter their scores in columns 2 through 8. When you are done you should have 8 scores for each of 8 people (including yourself), for a total of 64 scores. (Feel free to ask other students in the course if they would be willing to share their scores, too, if you would prefer that over recruiting friends and family).

Step 4: Calculating the Correlations. Now go to this site to calculate the correlation among your eight different measures.

https://www.easycalculation.com/statistics/correlation-matrix.php

To compute your correlations, go to the field that asks for the number of your matrix and put 8. This will open an 8 X 8 matrix that will allow you to enter all of your scores. Enter them exactly as they appear in your matrix above. The first box in the matrix will be for your Perceived Stress Score, followed by the Perceived Stress Scores for each of your other 7 people to complete that first ROW. They you will be going down to the second ROW where you will begin by entering your Self-Esteem score, followed by the Self-Esteem scores for each of your other 7 people, and so on until you have entered all 8 of the scores for all 8 of your people and completed the entire matrix of scores.

Step 5. Calculate. When you have finished entering your scores, press CALCULATE and scroll down to find the correlation matrix that appears below. This will show the correlation between all of your measures. All correlations will be between 1 (reflecting perfect positive correlation) and -1 (reflecting perfect inverse, or negative correlation).

Step 6. Interpretation. Looking at the correlation matrix you will see that it shows the correlation of each measure with every other measure. The correlation between the first measure (Perceived Stress) and itself would be a perfect correlation (1.0). Moving to the right, the next correlation you will see is between your first measure (Perceived Stress) and your second measure (Self-Esteem), and so on.

Study your correlations to see what correlates with what. Look back at your three predictions in Step 1 above. Were they supported or not supported? Indicate the results below by putting the correlations you found and your interpretation of that correlation.

Prediction #1_______________________________________________________

Prediction #2_______________________________________________________

Prediction #3_______________________________________________________

Step 7. Other findings. In addition to your predictions, did you see any other findings of interest to you? Any surprises?[supanova_question]

1- Self-reflection paper:

This is an exercise where the writer takes a topic and

reflects upon its personal significance. It is written in the first person and

should be an exercise where one examines the topic from a personal

perspective. Other than writing in the first person and exploring the personal

impact of the topic, all other paper writing conventions must be followed.

2-Reaction paper:

This paper, like your research paper, should be written in

the third person. It is more technical than the self-reflection paper, even

though both require research and the presentation of facts. In this exercise

one is to take a topic, present the opposing viewpoint fairly, and then react to

it. One has to be careful and avoid editorializing for that is not the purpose

of this paper. It should be as balanced as possible and the reaction should be

presented in such a way as to convince the audience.

A major role for talent managers is performance management. Technologies are widely available to assist in effective talent management. Before we can talk about the balance of performance measurement and trust, it’s important to understand what these technologies are and what they can do. Below is a website that describes the purpose of performance management tools to give you a sense of the power and potential in use of such tools. It also allows for a comparison of tools, which will be invaluable for you later on this module! Please skim the website below prior to beginning this discussion.

Go to the website https://www.ted.com/ .  Find a TED talk that addresses the value of one of the humanities fields covered in this course or a controversy in one of the humanities disciplines.  

Write a review of the presentation.  First, identify the name of the speaker and the presentation, indicate when it was presented, and give a link to the talk.  Second, describe the main points of the TED talk. Finally, offer a critique —your assessment of the speaker’s ideas and the presentation overall.  

4.  DISCUSS FUNDING FOR THE ARTS

Although most people appreciate the arts as part of their everyday lives (perhaps, especially, music and film), the arts often are first to go when public school funding is tight.  Use the educational resources for this week as a starting place to explore the pros and cons of public funding for the arts and funding for art and music in public schools.[supanova_question]

Taking Your Department Remote Lesson 1 of 1 Now that you have

Taking Your Department Remote

Lesson 1 of 1

Now that you have been placed into your intradisciplinary groups, Speedy Pro is asking for you to create a plan in the event that your department (and the company) may need to transition to a remote workplace format. (My discipline is health studies )

Our recent experience with the pandemic has emphasized the need for preparedness in the event of a national oidered the implications for doing so.

Talent managers were likely involved in employee requests and complaints when workers were abruptly removed from their workspaces and asked to work from home. Think about all of the trials and tribulations you have heard about or experienced during the pandemic.

The pandemic has impacted business continuity, no matter what your discipline. Consider what your department would need to stay up and running. Many companies have completely redesigned their business model lest they fail. Some had to hire and train rapidly. Let’s take a look at some challenges and opportunities that have arisen as a result of the pandemic: 

Challenges and Opportunities in the Remote Workplace

As a group, your first step should be to research some of the struggles that have occurred in different organizations in a department similar to yours. As a group, determine the best practices from lessons learned. Your plan to take your department remote should have the following elements:

1) Determination of essential workers and/or schedule for rotating essential workers based upon their title and role. (Who is doing what, where and why? What skillsets are needed? We want the right people in the right seats?)

2) Roles and responsibilities. Set clear expectations of each person and/or role.

3) A plan to handle flexible working schedules, ensuring there is no overtime, and the work is completed on effectively and efficiently. Devise a plan for remote time off.

4) Timeframe for going remote effectively.

5)Communication plan for going remote and returning to work. How will you know when to start the return-to-work planning and messaging?

6) Plan to support and engage remote workers.

7) How will you maintain trust?

8) How will you measure performance?

9) Provide a list of resources the department will need, where they will come from and how they will be distributed.

Remote Team Transition Templates

Your team’s research should help drive your recommendations. Consider the unique issues your particular department may have. Also, consider the diverse needs of your team, including those who may be hesitant or face barriers to working remotely.

Here are some templates that can help to organize your work:

What is missing is more written in the comparison of ZOHO that is better for this business versus Salesforce which is to big of a CRM software for the business that piece needs to be 2 pages on its own. Citations as well for everything. I have added references at the end of this.

Instructions

It is now time to merge some of the information from the last few weeks. In this assignment, utilize the Marketing and Sales Plan template to generate a simplified plan your venture. You will notice that some of the information needed was generated in previous lessons. That is okay, you can use that information; however, be sure to incorporate feedback from your instructor and peers.

 

In this Marketing and Sales Plan:

 

Product/Service Description

Customer Relationship Management

Add two (2) more goals and expand on strategy, approach and improvement opportunities.

Compare and contrast the customer relationship management program you selected with one of the programs you did not select. Explain why the program selected was the better choice.

Marketing and Sales

Create an advertisement for each digital form you identified as appropriate for your product/service.

Sales Forecasting Model

Select two (2) of the models from our lesson. Compare and contrast the models. Discuss which one would better fit your venture starting in Year 2 of your business.

 

The assignment should be 5-6 pages (excluding the title, abstract, and reference pages).

Here is the template:

Marketing and Sales Plan Template

Venture Overview

Provide information on venture. Be sure to include name, description of product/services, location, and customer information.

This business venture is a home base assisted living facility that will provide excellent care for

the elderly in a home environment. The name of the facility is called World Class Vineyard Care

and will be offering affordable pricing for semi and private rooms in a beautiful home

environment. Along with this the business will have, experienced facilitators and health care

workers that are compassionate in working one on one with each patient. The location will be in

the Inland Valley where there is next to nothing with regard to a home care assisted living for

one on one care. This is an ideal facility for family members that are looking for a nice transition

for elderly care for their parent or loved one.

Product/Service Description

Earlier in the course you created a two-slide presentation describing your product/service. Incorporate feedback from your instructor and classmates and place the information here.

The feedback I received from my classmates were in line with what I had written the

consensus as that everyone really got what this business was doing and that the presentation

answered the solving of concerns that a family would have in searching for a professional in

home assisted living facility. I had some feedback from my professor stating that I should

have incorporated some of the references as in testimonies in the slide presentation instead of

the last page stating that an investor could inquire about them. I also got some feedback

stating that it was cool I did add the last page as an invitation to a potential investor and that

was a nice touch to only a few slide presentation. Over all the slide presentation was

successful and the comments and feedback reassured me that this business is on the right

track in the selling points and unique value propositions I created.

Customer Relationship Management

Earlier in the course you completed the table below. In addition to the original information you provided, add two (2) more goals and expand on strategy, approach and improvement opportunities.

This was the previous assignment

Target Customers

Relationship Goals (at least 2 SMART goals)

Strategy to Achieve Goals

Systematic Approach

Continuous Improvement

Identify your target customers.

1 Baby boomers and  there parents who are now older and need care

 

2 lower to middle income families who are seeking affordable assisted living

Goals for establishing and maintaining a relationship.

1 Being specific about ads that address 70 plus age groups.

 

2  ads for the 55 to 65 age group that are responsible for their parents well- being.

 

 3 goal of

reaching these customers within a 30 to 60 day period since the vetting process will take time and this will only be a 6 to 8 bed facility

Overarching plan on how to achieve your customer relationship goals.

1Researching the market in the area to see competition

 

 2 web site presence that will address questions for future clients

 

3 Lastly a well thought out series of ads that target the demographic of lower to middle class families that need help in finding affordable care

Action steps needed to accomplish goals.

 

Once the data comes in of how many families are in need in the specific area of the location of the business the next steps would be.

 

Data mining to confirm

Email introduction letter with flyer to direct to the website

Video presentation on website

Questionnaire form potential clients fill out on website

Look for ways to improve your strategy and approach.

 

1 Important to follow up and follow thru on potential clients

 

2 use data to create ads that are specific to the target customer

 

3 learn from what ads worked and which ones gained less response

 

4 tighten up comments and feedback that others may say and use in wording for next series of ads

Strategy to achieve goals and systematic approach and room for improvement:

If I were to add two more goals to this section it would be do a follow up online questionnaire

on the website to identify the needs of what a potential family member is really looking for in a

home assisted facility so I could then match what they are saying to an ad campaign using those

specific words and needs and then match those needs in the business model. Secondly, create

another follow up questionnaire to the existing clients and families to see if the business is

meeting their expectations and needs and any suggestions that the business needs to improve on

The next strategy would be creating a video of facility and the patient and family

testimonials.and posting this video on the website. The approach would be to capitalize on this

footage shot and then create some mini-ads created from this video to use as advertising on

Facebook. Future potential clients will be able to now really get a feel from taped testimonials

that speak more clearly than a brochure or pamphlet.

When looking at areas for improvement expanding on the social media follow up of generated

ads that cause a response to the website will help create a wait list for the next facility that will

have more rooms available. Doing a home based facility is harder than a traditional larger facility

that feels like a hotel. This business model has strengths in that the person housed there feels like

they are in a real home with a back yard and their own room and a living room for activities.

This allows each client to feel like the transition from their own home to a new home is not as

abrupt. The next set of ads need to show case these identifiers thus improving on the start up

model to

showcase the next phase of growth and customer satisfaction.

Target Customers

Relationship Goals (at least 2 SMART goals)

Strategy to Achieve Goals

Systematic Approach

Continuous Improvement

Identify your target customers.

Goals for establishing and maintaining a relationship.

Overarching plan on how to achieve your customer relationship goals.

Action steps needed to accomplish goals.

Look for ways to improve your strategy and approach.

Earlier in the course you investigated customer relationship management software. Compare and contrast the program you selected with one of the programs you did not select. Explain why the program selected was the better choice.

I previously chose ZOHO as the best CRM software for this business and still believe it is the

most flexible and user friendly for this start-up. There are also enough attributes in this software

for growth and managing everything from new leads to existing customers and financial

accountability. It also provides many options to expand such as mobile capabilities and

interfacing for eventual expansion between other facilities as the business grows.

The CRM software that did now seem a good choice was Sales Force, mainly because it had too

many options and it seemed a bit overwhelming. It is a great software for a bigger company that

has many divisions and sales teams to manage and keep track of hundreds even thousands of

leads and customers. World Class Vineyard Care is to small for this type of CRM.

Marketing and Sales

Earlier in the course you conducted research on traditional vs digital advertising for your venture. Now, create an advertisement for each of the digital forms you identified as being appropriate for your product/service.

Digital Advertising

Social Media – Twitter

Slice of choc cake less than 200 cal #yummy

FACEBOOK – digital advertising AD

This would be less than a minute video shot of the facility a home showing the beds and staff and a few staged actors in the facility with the following copy as a voice over

“ Are you scared about what the future holds for your loved one”?

World Class Vineyard Care has the answers you are looking for

We offer affordable pricing in either a semi or private room

A medically trained staff that is compassionate in giving one on one care

We also have Covid protocols and a visit room so you can see you talk with your loved one during the pandemic

YOUTUBE- digital advertising AD

This is a 2 minute video ad shot with actual testimonies of patients talking at the facility about their stay, testimonials from the caregivers and staff as well as the family members that chose World Class Vineyard Care and their thoughts about how the facility has treated their loved one.

Sales Forecasting Model

Select two (2) of the models from our lesson. Compare and contrast the models. Discuss which one would better fit your venture starting in Year 2 of your business. Be sure to state the model, features of the model, and why the model would be appropriate for your business. (This portion should be at least 1-2 pages.)

Lead-driven – This is a relationship analysis model. Users of this model analyze the relationship with customers to determine next actions (i.e., buying) based on the relationship between the business and the customer.

Length of Sales Cycle – This model focuses on the closing of a deal based on where the deal is in the sales cycle.

Opportunity Stage – This model works through the sales pipeline and predicts which opportunities are most like to become closed deals.

Historical – This is the traditional review past sales data model.

Multivariable Analysis – This model combines various pieces of other models to determine future sales. Areas such as sales rep performance, pipeline conversion, and other areas are analyzed to determine future sales.

World Class Vineyard Care would still benefit from lead driven and opportunity stage. The first

sales forecasting model in this business would be lead driven as this business for the first home

care facility will only be 6 to 8 beds. By year two if the business model is successful a second

location will be its next goal and focusing on a lead driven model with a emphasis on word of

mouth recommendations from doctor relationships should help the second location build its bed

count.

The second would be the opportunity stage in the assisted living market this stage is vital for

growth as when a new bed opens up or a new location is looking to fill the beds this is the best

time to go after the existing pipeline that predicts the opportunities on what worked in the past. If

the referral and recommendation method works then these two sales forecast methods will prove

successful for this business.

Sales and Marketing Plan

One (or maybe two) of the most important plans developed for your venture is the sales and marketing plan. In some cases, the two documents are combined into one plan: a sales plan with a marketing section or a marketing plan with a sales section.

Sales vs Marketing Plan

It is not uncommon to merge the two plans as the information from each complement each other. Milano (n.d.) describes marketing as the “big picture” and sales as a “targeted tactical document” (para. 1). Just as we learned in the previous lesson with marketing vs advertisement, marketing is the book and sales is a chapter within the book.
No matter if you are working on separate plans or merging information, you must identify and understand your target market. Without this information, either plan will not provide a solid foundation to selling your product/service.

Sales Plan Topics

A Course of Intellectual Self-Defense

PROMPT:

The Personal Narrative Essay focuses on your ability to find points of interest, fascination, and provocation which leads you, the student, to further your “Course of Intellectual Self-Defense,” by developing a reading life. It also is an exploration of your own “Cave” as analyzed via the work of Plato and Socrates. What is your pathway forward? What will you subscribe to in the literary world?

You should review the concepts discussed in the three sections of the course to devise your own personal focus for this essay.

Provocation: Intellectual Self-Defense, The Seed to Read, and the Socratic Method out of the Cave.

Examination: The Intellectual, Creative, Researched Mind, and the … Media; Noam Chomsky.

Application: The Brain on Books and Free Thinking into the Personal Narrative.

————————————————————————————–

Requirements:

You must use content from the class analysis of:

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

The Allegory of the Cave by Plato

And you must choose one intellectual/writer/noted cultural figure from The Whore of Mensa by Woody Allen.

You may also apply the concepts from the “Examination” section of the course, principally the impact of propaganda and how to defend intellectually.

Questions I will be asking when I read your essay:

What specific elements from Fahrenheit 451 and The Allegory of the Cave influence you, in the context of the world today, and in your own personal journey?

What key quotes or scenes from the novel Fahrenheit 451 speak to you directly and why?

What symbols, metaphors, and allegorical meanings to your collective readings influenced your own thinking this semester?

How will developing a life of reading enrich your life as a whole? And what genres will appear on your bookshelf?

What intellectual figure in The Whore of Mensa intrigues you? Explain their work and why it could be influential to your life.

What influenced you specifically from reading and discussing Spalding Gray’s Catastrophe?

I have attached a picture of the prompt/rubric with a few more notes on what to make sure the essay contains.

“what is your cave?” – come up with a problem or obstacle in life and explain how it was overcome, make it sound personal.

**Choose an author listed in “The norman invasion” or “the whore of mensa” to write about in the essay**

Who is the key character in Fahrenheit 451 and what is their significance?

If you have any questions please contact me![supanova_question]

Managing by the Numbers Katherine Potter knew a good thing when she

Managing by the Numbers

Katherine Potter knew a good thing when she saw it. At least, it seemed so at first. She was traveling in Italy when she spotted pottery shops that made beautiful products ranging from ashtrays to lamps. Some of the pottery was stunning in design.

Katherine began importing the products to the United States, and sales took off. Customers immediately realized the quality of the items and were willing to pay top price. Katherine decided to keep prices moderate to expand rapidly, and she did. Sales in the second three months were double those of the first few months. Sales in the second year were double those of the first year.

Every few months, Katherine had to run to the bank to borrow more money. She didn’t really discuss her financial situation with her banker because she had no problems getting larger loans. You see, she always paid promptly. To save on the cost of buying goods, Katherine always took trade discounts. That is, she paid all bills within 10 days to save the 2% offered by her suppliers for paying so quickly.

Most customers bought Katherine’s products on credit. They would buy a couple of lamps and a pot, and Katherine would allow them to pay over time. Some were very slow in paying her, taking six months or more.

After three years, Katherine noticed a small drop in her business. The local economy was not doing well, and many people were being laid off from their jobs. Nonetheless, Katherine’s business stayed level. One day, the bank called Katherine and told her she was late in her payments. She told them she had been so busy that she didn’t notice the bills. The problem was that Katherine had no cash available to pay the bank. She frantically called several customers for payment, but they were not able to pay her, either. Katherine was in a classic cash flow bind.

Katherine immediately raised her prices and refused to make sales on credit. She started delaying payment on her bills and paid the extra costs. Then she went to the bank and went over her financial condition with the banker. The banker noted her accounts receivable and assets. He then prepared a cash budget and loaned Katherine more money. Her import business grew much more slowly thereafter, but her financial condition improved greatly. Katherine had nearly gone bankrupt, but she recovered at the last minute.

Answer the following questions about the Managing By The Numbers Case Study:

How is it possible to have high sales and high profits and run out of cash?

Why did Katherine do better when she raised her prices and refused to sell on credit?

What was the nature of Katherine’s problem? Was she correct to go to the banker for help, even though she owed the bank money? How could she have prevented some of the problems she eventually found herself faced with?[supanova_question]

(The Family Stone and Get Out are available through e-reserves via Cook Library using this link. If you’d prefer, you may use ANY movie that demonstrates three generation family relationship dynamics to use as the family case for your genogram activity)

Can you help me create a website about physical activity and mental health

Websites are excellent platforms for explaining issues, policies, and proposed interventions. The task in this final project is to adapt one of your previous research topics into the form of a website to address a specific audience for a specific purpose.
This project was initially conceptualized as a follow-up on your white paper topic, addressing one of the specific audiences who would be affected by the findings of that paper (high school students, AI researchers, businesses looking to manage data effectively, and so on). However, you may choose another topic if you would prefer. Your website should address an issue that concerns your audience, explain the issue, and present possible next steps, including how they could get involved.
Your project will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
Effectively uses the affordances of a website to convey information, including content, display, methods of organization, and links.
Demonstrates the appeal of the topic to a specific audience.
Organizes its content and other features of the website to a specific purpose with respect to that audience.
Draws on appropriate research to support the website’s content and gives appropriate credit to others’ work.
