The packaging generates the attention, communicates with the costumer and motivates to buy a product. Now a days the packaging is not considered to have only aesthetic attraction but also ecological. Apple tries to find different solutions to develop and improve the outer look of their products. The packaging of iTime is designed to be minimal. Apple considers to make a box where the product can be easy transportable and safe of any damages. The colors are black and white. The materials of the box instead are cardboard, polystyrene and aluminium. All materials are recyclable. Outside and inside of the box are made of the mentioned materials. The thickness of each material is made to be 2.5 mm.

5 Marketing and Advertisement
Competitions for sports We would like to attract the young generation and promote our product in different activities connected to sports. We would divide two season sport competitions. In wintertime our company would organize a competition for young snowboard riders all over the world. In most of the big cities there would be a local competition, where the first placewould get further. The final competition would be organized in the United States of America. The first three places would get a certain amount of money and iTime as a present. The same competition would be for skateboardists in summer time.
Workshops in the schools and universities Apple would organize the seminars about the new technologies. We would introduce the students with the newest Apple products where the most important would be the new generation telephone-watch iTime.
Musicians We would like to promote our music player option and new wireless earphones design by organizing a competition for young talented musicians. The new musicians or musician bands would submit their newest song to Apple web page where the people would have possibility to listen to their songs and vote for the favourite one. In this way we would give a chance to each musician become a star.
Competitions for artists We would like to involve the new talented artists and designers in our great project. The conception of project would be a competition for renovation of packaging or new design of iTime, or iTime for kids. The new designers would design the new look of iTime. The jury of our companies designers would decide which is the most appropriate design. The best design as a prize would get an amount of money and iTime. 41
Protect our friends Apple develops a plan to protect the wild animals from illegal hunting in Africa, Latin America and Asia. There would be 10 associations in Africa, Latin America and Asia which would work with this problem. In this case, we would give 40 iTime watches to these 10 associations. Also each iTime sold would give 10 cents to these associations. In the main cities around the world we would put transparent animal photos as an add on the windows of Apple stores.
Support people with health problems Apple would support the people who have health problems and need to communicate with their doctors all the time. We would give the amount of iTime products to these people to keep them safe anytime. The most important thing is the emergency button of iTime. With this button the patient can connect with his doctor immediately. There is possibility to avoid the risk. iTime is easy-to-use watch and is suitable for everyone.
Events: Guerrilla Marketing
Stop the Big Ben! For this type of marketing we would use a clock as a symbol of city, for example, Big Ben in London or Ramadan in Mecca. We would hire two climbers who would climb to the top of the clock using stairs with logo of iTime and a rope with symbol of Apple repeated from beginning to end. They would show the white flag with printed symbol of iTime as a conquest of the world.
Build Future We would help to build the schools and markets for the poor people in Africa. We would work together with governments of the regions to build the buildings the people need in their villages. We would focus on educational system and work more with the schools construction plan. iTime would be a communication between the people working on this project.
Social - Ethic Marketing
iTime and sport Apple does not produce their products just for purpose of profit. We want to find the way to help society by sponsoring projects for developing countries. For this reason a marketing strategy that Apple wants to adopt is social - ethic marketing. In what way? The soccer is the most popular and important sport over the world, even in developing countries. According to statistical extrapolated ratio of human development report compiled by the United Nations Development programme in development of Togo, Malawi, Benin, East Timor, Ivory Coast, Zambia, Eritrea, Senegal, Rwanda, Gambia, Liberia, Guinea, Ethiopia, Sul Mincio, Mozambano, Guinea-Bissau, Burundi, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burkina Faso, Mali, Central African, Republic, Sierra
Leone, Afghanistan, Niger are 24 states with the lowest human development index. Through the all known sport soccer. Apple with itâ€™s exclusive product wants to introduce and show to everyone the games of soccer. iTime in this context is more a symbol than an utility. Is a symbol of development. A part of proceeds will be devolved for the project to build the schools, markets, hospitals and even more. Apple will be the sponsor and the help.
