companies that would give marketing info to a 15 year old??


im doing a gsce in business studies and one of the assignments theyve given us is to contact a major company asking them for marketing information and then analysing it and making suggestions to improve it.

ive contacted apple, microsoft, intel, nike and sony erricson and so far these are the replies that im getting:

Apple does not comment on its marketing strategy or provide marketing related data externally. All information on Apple and iPod in the public domain is available on our website at

Thank you very much for your email about marketing information for your educational project.

We receive requests from students to assist with information for their course work on a regular basis and as such it is not feasible for us to deal with these requests on an individual basis. However, a number of resources have been created to provide information about Microsoft®. These resources are publicly available on the Internet:

I hope this information has answered your query but if you have any more questions please give us a call on 0870 60 10 100 (select option 2, then option 2 again). Our lines are open Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm. Of course if you prefer, please send me an email.


Thank you for contacting Intel.

Market data information varies from analyst to analyst. We recommend that you
contact a market research firm for this information.

Again, thank you for your interest in Intel.

as you can see they arent giving me what i want.

does anyone know any companies that would give out that information, with the exception of the ones ive tried, and coca-cola (the teacher used that as an example so everyone is contacting them)

a company that does operate in the UK would be nice, but at the moment ill take anything i get.

What specifically are you looking for? Is the information on those websites not specific enough for your assignment?

There are a few things you can try.
1) Ask the reference librarian at your library (or at a library in another city if your library does not have sufficient resources). They often have access to databases, such as Hoover's, and can give you information if you can provide enough in terms of a search request.
2) Do you have a friend or relative in college who has on line access to resources that you can use?
3) Perhaps the librarian at your school can assist.
4) Try various internet searches. You may be able to find public documents that you can use. The key is finding the correct search terms to use.
Try toy/game companies. (The Lego Group, The Learning Company, Nintendo, Parker Brothers, Matel Inc., etc.)
They'll probably be more willing to hand out what you need (because they probably already get a lot of requests, and they figure its good advertisement for their products.)
