Option #1: Promotional Plan
For Option #1, you will provide a promotional plan that communicates the business’s benefits based upon needs of buyer. The plan must be logical and convincing plan, with a strategy to communicate the company’s benefits in such a way that it will persuade buyers or clients about the worth of your business’s product or service.
The success of a small business is based on its ability to communicate and to meet the needs of its target market. One of the most important ways to do this is with a promotional plan. In the past, promotional plans were seen as short-term ways to boost revenues and market share. Current research has shown that promotion is a direct link to customer loyalty and retention. For this reason, small businesses should produce a promotional plan.
The objective of the promotional plan assignment is to gain experience applying a promotional strategy to help a firm gain competitive advantage. This assignment will help you apply and integrate all of the course objectives for MKG425. The promotional plan assignment will be completed in sections (these will be Portfolio Milestones that are due throughout the course. See below for a list of these deliverables.) The final plan is due in Module 8.
