Group 7 Twitter Chat

By @afisher7007 @jdally4 @ycq321 @xulinsen

On Thursday August 1 our group Twitter conversation focused on issues related to green marketing. We included links to articles related to the success or failure of green marketing campaigns. Followers were asked their opinions on how purchasing green products made them feel and how willing they were to pay a premium for those products. Students were engaged in the conversation sharing their own insights about green marketing. Some of the more memorable responses are listed below:

‏@afisher70074h

#mktg420 #greenmarketing What does everyone think about green marketing? Effective or not?

 

  • @brenschader4h think its a downfall for stores. Carrying bags from other stores to carry your groceries… Loss of marketing #mktg420TR

 

@JDally44h

#Mktg420tr #Group7 #TwitterChat today, we’re talking about green marketing. To start it off, does anyone in class use green products daily?

 

 

 

@afisher70074h

#mktg420tr How much more are you willing to pay for “green” products? Does purchasing green products make you feel better about consumption?

 

  • @lovelydlo4h buying green and also organic products does make me feel better about my consumption! #mktg420tr

 

Class members also Tweeted out their own examples of green marketing campaigns and we were able to facilitate conversations with them. Some examples can be seen below:
