HOOK, LINE, AND SINKER: CATCHING AND MAINTAINING STUDENTS’ ATTENTION WITH MARKETING HOOKS
Marketing Education Review
A challenge for Principles of Marketing instructors is introducing new topics to majors and non-majors alike in a way that piques interest and increases student engagement across the breadth of topics. To help instructors overcome this challenge, we provide marketing “hooks,” or short in-class exercises, that can be implemented to introduce a new topic and allow instructors to segue from real-world applications to lectures. These hooks span the 4Ps of marketing and are adaptable to a variety of course formats (face-to-face, flipped, hybrid, online). Further, to facilitate execution of each hook, we provide time requirements, materials, detailed instructions, discussion questions, and suggestions for linking each hook to components of the marketing mix.
