Class Starter:  Product descriptions for online shopping

This is an example of a product description for Nalgene Bottles.

Our most popular bottle, available in a variety of colors to help brighten up anybody’s gear. The large opening on our wide-mouth bottles easily accommodates ice cubes, fits most water purifiers and filters, and makes hand washing a breeze. The attached loop-top never gets lost and screws on and off easily. Printed graduations let keep track of your hydration. Dishwasher safe (Please make sure the top does not touch the heating element, or it will melt).

Write a Blog Post about how often you shop online and how the product description influences your purchase.  (30 points)

Class Activities:

Today your new product proposal is due.  Make sure that you have filled out the My Tiny Company Google Form.  You will need my approval before you proceed to the next step. You will have time to discuss it with me during class today.

When you get the go-ahead from me, you may start your “Write-Up” about the product that you will market. Open the  Write-Up assignment and hit save-as, insert your name in the file name and save it to your Drive class folder.
Your Write-Up will be due next week and will be worth 100 points.
