Week 4 post 1: Identify target market

The difference between Hungry Bear Deli and Subway, the large the biggest difference is the fact one company is a franchise and the other is not.  Subway being a franchise it is to appeal to everyone hungry for a sandwich across the world. The Vista Hungry Bear Deli is marketing to the local people mainly and maybe getting tourists to vista if they are in the Vista area.  The demographics for each are also different as Subway likes to appeal to the people that are on a budget and want a sandwich with all their advertisements on 5 dollar footlongs. The bear deli is not marketing as a cheaper food they are marketing as great quality and you get what you pay for.  The prices in the sandwiches are easily 6 dollars or more, with that being said the group you appeal to is based on the budget of the person. The Bear Deli is also claiming to be the best sub shop in all of San Diego versus subways advertisements at one point were about weight loss, now it is about 5 dollar subs.

The three potential problems seen with this website are as follows: lack of fluidity of the pagenot appealing to look atbad links to extra pagesThe page to me is most likely not done professionally these three problems I have found are just the start of why I do not think it is done professionally.  Let start with the lack of fluidity to the page, meaning how blocky it is and every bit of text is over images or don't have the pop to the text making it blend with the background art.  The page contact information is halfway down the home page and if you are not reading everything it definitely would blend in with all the other text.  But had they done what most good websites do they have a link at the top that normally says contact us which would then send you to the bottom of the page where everything is in the neat footer or to another page with all the information needed.  The next big thing is the text is not all the same and d…

Week two Post one: Blog Post

With Social media being so powerful nowadays, there can be so much answered or done through social media.  As stated in the reading this week an insurance company did not help the customer with the situation at hand when they called.  But, when the customer turned to social media and put the company on blast, they instantly reached out and were willing to see how they can help.  With social media reaching people so fast and for some reason everyone taking it a gospel, it is both beneficial to businesses as well as can be hurtful.  So yes social media makes things easier to get noticed and or get problems solved.
Before social media, getting in touch with a company could have seemed like a hassle.  Sometimes reaching a company would be all by phone and very time consuming, you may even have had to go into the business at times to get in touch with someone.  Also sending an email to a company to get things resolved would get overlooked or maybe they would just avoid the email altogether.…
