Marketing Plan Project

Marketing Plan Project SP 2020
Purpose: The purpose of this project is to give students experience in a range of marketing problem-solving and decision-making scenarios, including researching target markets, deciding on marketing mix elements, and determining an action plan.
Project Intro:
Students should prepare a written report marketing plan using the following guidelines.  There is no set page limit for this assignment. Please refrain from writing more than 20 pages.  Most successful projects will be around 10 pages.
This project will require both creativity and critical thinking.  You should include at least 5 credible outside sources to support various components of your project. For example, if you are introducing a new fitness app, you may want to research current markets for fitness apps when discussing the target market you will be pursuing.  Other places to include citations include company introduction, situation analysis, etc. 
Step 1) You will develop a marketing plan for a new product or service you believe an existing firm should offer.  Examples of past projects/product include : Nike introducing a new sports drink, Chick Fil A offering delivery services, ModCloth opening physical retailers, etc.  Students generally either 1) think of a new product and then think of a firm that would be appropriate or 2) think of a firm they are interested in and then think of a gap in that firms product/service offerings.  So, Step 1 is for you to think of a product/service and firm
Then, complete the project using the outline below.  Remember that you should be researching the firm, industry, competition, target market, etc. There will be videos on the CougarView site to help you identify and find appropriate sources.
Please note that the following is a proposed project outline.  You should cover most, if not all, of the following topics. You can find more information about creating Marketing Plans in Chapter 2 of your text.
