Mini Challenge 2 – The Online Marketing Challenge

Dear AGEC High School Learners!

We hope you’re having a blast with the AGEC entrepreneurial exercises this year because there’s more excitement coming your way! Get ready to unleash your creativity and marketing genius in Mini Challenge 2 – the Online Marketing Challenge!

🎮 Challenge Details:

Platform: AGEC’s Gaming Network!

Theme: Let’s market a made-up product or business!

Task: Think of a kind of product or service. Then write a blog post where you explain an imaginative way to tell other people about the product/service (this is called marketing) and include a cool social media post that will help you market it. In 200-250 words, explain your marketing ideas and create an image or graphic that will convince people about your product/service.

💡 Guidelines:

Remember to think about:

  • What your product/service is
  • Who your target market is (the people who will most likely use the product or service)
  • Where you will market your product online and why
  • When you will market your product online and why
  • How you will grab the interest of your target market

Think outside the box and include a well-designed image that represents your social media post. We would recommend using a simple design tool like Canva to create the image.
