BACKGROUND

Your final project for this course is to prepare a Marketing
 Strategy. The goal for the Team Marketing Strategy Project is to create a marketing strategy for a fictional national product or service. You will be assigned to a team at the beginning of the course and each team will be given a group page in Canvas to communicate and organize their team project files. Each team will create a concept for a new product/service along with an associated marketing strategy. Each team will submit their marketing strategy to their peers for review at the end of the semester. Note: Your team marketing strategy project should not consist of services for college students. Expand your horizons far beyond the college environment. Some examples of products/services include: consumer manufactured products, business services, web applications, software, new automobile technologies, consumer convenience services, product delivery services, and food products, etc.

PROMPT

Each marketing strategy should include the following components. The number of slides for each component should not exceed the number indicated in parentheses. These slides should be designed and written as if you will actually be presenting the deck live and include comprehensive Speaker Notes detailing key points. Do not change the order of the slides.

Task:

Marketing Objectives (2-3 slides): Define specific goals in terms of sales revenue, units and market share. Confirm market share for what product market. Provide a simple bar chart with year over year projections for five years. Summarize justification for objectives.

Please adhere to the following format criteria for the Final Team Marketing Strategy:

Create the strategy in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Include a title page with team name, product name, first and last names of each team member, course title and date.

Do not include too much information onto each slide, but make sure the critical items and details are included. Each slide should be readable on the presentation screen to your audience. As you work on the plan, consider the question: What is the most important information to include on each slide?

Use color, graphics and artwork to enhance your slide content as appropriate.

Your Marketing Strategy should consist of a total of no more than 24 PowerPoint slides. Incorporate all feedback from the Draft Marketing Strategy in your Final Marketing Strategy. Include comprehensive Speaker Notes for all slides of your Final Marketing Plan to document your team’s process and how you arrived at each component of the strategy. Use APA formatting to cite any work used to support your strategy. You will submit your Final Marketing Plan via the Group Page in Blackboard to the instructor for grading.

Compose your work in a .doc or .docx file type using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) and save it frequently to your computer. For those assignments that are not written essays and require uploading images or PowerPoint slides, please follow uploading guidelines provided by your instructor.
