Marketing Mahem

For whatever problem or situation you face, there's always a product for you to buy that will fix everything. Everyday, something else is introduced to the market. What is a buyer to do? Which product do you buy? Can you really tell which one will be best by looking at the container it is in? Are the commercials on TV really accurate? Did 9 out of 10 people actually prefer it over the other brands?

You could make a lot of money by coming up with some bogus product. It doesnt actually have to work. You can just put it in appealing wrapping, write some nice lines about it, and make promises that may or may not be true.

What would your "invention" be?

I would call it Drink Knowledge. For example to day I would have had a glass of Life Course Criminology, and with in minutes I would have all the knowledge I needed... I would then ace the exam.

Any kind of "beauty product" would sell to women. Put it in a pretty container, tell them it'll make them beautiful, and they'll buy it
