consumers using website

How consumers are using these websites in their decision-making process

Select two websites from the list below, analyzing them from the standpoint of transferring information. In Unit IV, we analyzed websites for their ability to persuade; in this unit, we are analyzing for the efficiency in providing information to the consumer. Keep in mind that the end goal of both is to influence the target market. Include criteria discussed in the lesson and throughout this course in your evaluation.
Furniture from Ikea.com
Electronics from Amazon.com
Laptops from HP.com
Backpacks from REI.com
Apparel from Macys.com
Running shoes from Nike.com
Cosmetics from Sephora.com
Private dressing from Stitchfix.com
Ensure that you respond to the questions below.
Using website functionality discussed in the lesson, compare functionality attributes of each of the two websites you selected. How are consumers using these websites in their decision-making process?
In your opinion, are these websites effective at reaching and providing necessary information in order to persuade the customer? Include your rationale.
Explain how marketers might make these websites more efficient in relaying information to the consumer.

Instructions

Your response should be double-spaced and should be a minimum of three pages in length. References should include each of the websites plus a minimum of two additional credible references. All sources used must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations and be cited per APA guidelines

Global warming

Global warming

Discussion :

One of the major ecological and planetary issues facing modern society is the changes that are and will come due to global warming (as an aside: I feel the term “climate change,” while more technically correct, obfuscates the urgency of the problem, so I do not like to use it). Sea level rise affects over one in three human beings and they are using science to combat it in different ways. In addition to rising oceans, we will also have to deal with things like desertification, permafrost melting, and other potential challenges to our way of life.

In your main post write at least 400 words that describe a population dealing with climate change, and cite the sources you use. Make sure to discuss how climate is affecting them now and how the situation expected to change in the future. Mention any geological or ecological factors that make this population susceptible to global warming (Florida is particularly affected because of sandy soil and frequent storms, for example). Also discuss any preventative technologies the residents are employing to try and reverse the effects.

Note

You may not choose Florida or the coastal U.S. in general. Do a little research and choose a group of people with whom we may be less familiar. You can choose Americans in the interior (who will have to deal with global warming, too), but make sure to not repeat topics your classmates have already posted about.

(DO NOT PICK Nigeria because it is already taken)

Civil Rights and Women’s Liberation movements

Civil Rights and Women’s Liberation movements

After reading about the Civil Rights and Women’s Liberation movements, you should have a solid understanding of women’s and African Americans’ critiques of the “American Dream” in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the context of the Cold War that helped launch both movements.

For this thread, I’d like you to choose either women’s liberation OR African American’s/Civil Rights groups and answer the following questions.  (And yes, I realize that this isn’t a very intersectional approach, especially since women of color were often involved in both movements.  Gay, lesbian and queer folks were also usually rendered invisible in these critiques.  Feel free to address this in your posts if you’d like!)

But for now, choose one group and answer the following questions:

Instructions

You should engage with a minimum of two texts in your response.  Your initial response should be thoughtful and engaged – this is a pivotal part of the class so please write a focused, clear and thoughtful response that engages directly with ideas/examples/arguments from the texts.
