Abstract

PT. Goldfindo Intikayu Pratama is a company which manufactures many kinds of furniture of good quality such as beds, tables, chairs, wardrobes, and etc. The company mainly sells its products to distributors of furniture products in the USA. The problem that the company is facing is that its sales have been decreasing lately. This is due to some reasons, one of which is the promotion tool that the company uses. So far, the company has been using its company profile to promote its products. The problem is that the company profile is neither up to date nor interesting in terms of content and design. Some of the information is also irrelevant to the customers. For these reasons, the company needs to modify or change its company profile. The company needs to have a company profile that is much more impressive and interesting so that its potential customers will be interested and buy the company?s products. To realize this, the pictures of the furniture products displayed in the new company profile should be those which the company is currently producing, and which are in trend today or more demanded by most potential customers. In addition, the sentences in the new company profile are supposed to be communicative, simple, and impressive. With the new company profile, it is expected that more customers will be interested and buy the products of PT. Goldfindo Intikayu Pratama. As a result, the company will increase its sales and earn more profit from selling its furniture product

Abstract

Speed Electronics is a home industry which producing electronic spare-parts for electronic goods. Since this company is still developing, it has to deal with several promotion problems. To solve this problem, Speed Electronics really needs to have a media which can promote its products and attract prospective customers. Thus, a commercial website will be suitable for Speed Electronics. It will consist of ?Home?, ?About Us?, ?Our Products?, ?Our Service?, ?Our Distributors/Stores? and ?How to Contact Us? parts. I believe only by seeing the pictures and the descriptions inside the website, the customers will be updated with the newest information about the spare-parts that Speed Electronics sell. Moreover, when they want to order the spare-parts, they can directly look at this website to avoid miscommunication. Besides, Speed Electronics will expectedly be able to widen its market or even get a chance to export its products to other countries

Abstract

In the internship program, I worked at West Alfalink which is located at Ruko Rich Palace kav. I-1 Jl. MayjenSungkono 149-151. Alfalink is an overseas education consultant / agent and English language center. In this company, I found three problems. One of them is no guidebook for students who choose the USA to do their overseas study. By looking at this condition, I decided to make the USA guidebook for Alfalink?s students. It can be an effective tool for the company to give detailed information for the students. By providing this guidebook, Alfalink and students can get a lot of benefits. First, Alfalink?s staff do not need to give long explanation to the students and to new staff. Second, Alfalink can use it as a promotional tool. Last, students can get complete information about the USA.

Abstract

In this research, I discuss about types of apology strategies used by Lion Group officers in handling problems with passengers. It was triggered by the fact that this Airline Company still manages to have high number of passengers though many of its passengers have been disappointed because of the service given. Here, I used Apology Strategies theory proposed by Eva Ogierman (2009) which divided Apology Strategies into three main categories and each category has its own types. To get the data, I conducted an observation within two weeks in Pattimura Airport, Ambon. From this study I found out that there is a difference in the use of types of apology strategies when the officers had to deal with both calm and emotional passengers. The officers used types of IFIDs category more frequently in dealing with emotional passengers.

Abstract

This qualitative study aims to find out the affective strategies used by high proficiency learners at Hand Fortuna Center, Kupang. The theory applied was the theory of Affective Strategies by Oxford (1990) as a main theory and Oxford (2011) as a supporting theory. The source of data was the result of the questionnaires and the transcripts of interview that have been conducted with the ten high proficiency students at Hand Fortuna Center. The findings showed that the learners mostly used the first and the second part of affective strategies, namely ?lowering your anxiety? and ?encouraging yourself?. There are three sub-strategies in each part such as using ?progressive relaxation, deep breathing, or meditation?, ?using music?, and ?using laughter? (lowering your anxiety) and ?making positive statements?, ?taking risks wisely?, and ?rewarding yourself? (encouraging yourself). The third part of affective strategies, ?taking your emotional temperature?, was the least frequently used by the learners. It is possible that the learners might not be familiar with the strategies such as ?using a checklist? or ?writing a language learning diary?.

Abstract

This study mainly deals with the process of signification in order to reveal how meaning is created by the advertisement of Honda HR-V 2014 through the use of expressions. In this study, ?Meaning? is an integrated form consisting the three elements which are denotative form, connotative form, and myth form. Using qualitative content analysis (Schreier, 2012), the writer did this study based on Barthes?s process of signification (1987) and Peirce?s indexicality (1931-58). From the analysis, the writer found out that meaning is created by indexicality. The index connects the product and the traits that the product possesses. Then, the use of expressions in the advertisement visualises the index of the product. The index which was visualised by the use of expressions which produces denotative meaning and connotative meaning. Those denotative meaning and connotative meaning are perceived by the audiences and creates myth which naturalises the index itself. It can be concluded from this study that meaning is created by the index and has undergone several steps in order for audiences to perceive the myth and become unaware of the index.
