Leslie Lum's Introduction to Business: Readings and Workbook: "Module 3: Marketing"

Earlier we learned about products and product development (in the marketing mix). Businesses must consider where a product currently is in its lifecycle so appropriate marketing strategies can be created. For example, a product in the introductory stage would require heavy advertisement compared to a product in the decline state.

Read pages 186–188 and look carefully at the product lifecycle. Complete the assignment on the product life cycle on pages 194–195. For this assignment, indicate where each of the eight technology products is on the product lifecycle chart based on the percentages of the population that has that technology. Be sure to explain your reasoning.
