Business Buyers In this brief writing assignment, you will evaluate the four (4) different business markets identified in Chapter 8 — producer, reseller, government and institutional. List the categories of business buyers and provide a synopsis of each.
Describe the purpose of the purchase with respect to resale, direct use in producing other products, and use in general daily operations.
Name at least one business or organization (outside of your textbook) for each type. Be specific as why it fits. o If the business crosses over into more than one category, please describe fully. Does the business have multiple business units which sell to other businesses and consumer markets?
