Module 4

Planning and presenting a selling campaign

Activity 1:

Planning and presenting a selling campaign

[lo 2.6.1]

  • Make a heading: MY OWN PRODUCT

Now, in your group, choose a product of your own and MERELY plan a campaign based on the following criteria.

  • Do not bring the actual product into the classroom. This is only the planning stage!

A. Decide what each term below means, first of all.

B. Write down some notes about your product under each heading.(Reminder: you will also be judged by your preparation and planning)

You can choose any ONE of the following products:

Pottery / flowers / tea / a toy / fruit / tourist product


The product we have chosen is : ___________

1. What will make our product ‘good’?

2. How should our product be assembled?

3. How best can we distribute our product?

4. What is the best way to transport our product?

5. How and where should our product be stored?

6. How should our product be graded?

7. How should we present our product?

8. How can we network to join up with another suitable producer?

9. How can we finance our product?

10. What sort of risks are we taking?

Make sure you have all the information you require.

NOW, decide WHO will present WHAT aspect of the preparation to the class.

Make AN ATTRACTIVE ORAL PRESENTATION of your product in class.

Communicate orally (using the OHP / posters / other visual stimuli), HOW you prepared and planned your presentation only . Try to ‘sell’ your article with this presentation.

Is my product good
Team work
Class contact
Use of notes
Use of language

Activity 2:

Telling a story of success

[lo 1.1]


Now you can see that selling / marketing (entrepreneurship) is not as easy as it looks. There is an enormous amount of preparation you should do first.

Then it is easy and enjoyable – and profitable!

Entrepreneurship means coming up with a good idea / product;

Preparing your campaign and then presenting your idea / product really well.

In South Africa there are many success stories of people who had nothing and then used their entrepreneurship to make a success of their lives.

Do you know any stories like this? Tell the rest of the class.

Activity 3:

Inventing a new board game

[lo 5.1.3]

Now, in your group, see if you can design A NEW BOARD GAME that you might be able to market successfully.

Consider the following first:

1. The game should be played by more than two players.

2. The board must be attractive but simple.

3. The markers must be relevant and colourful.

4. The game must have a purpose.

5. There must be some kind of ‘reward’ when a player wins and some kind of ‘punishment’ if he loses, during the game.

6. It should not be expensive to make.

7. It should be easy to carry around.

8. Some re-cycled goods should be used somehow.

9. Have fun planning and designing and being creative and innovative!

10. If your game is really successful, you might try to market it, using the tips you have learnt so far!

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
