Section 1: Marketing Plan and Sales Strategy
In MS Word, write the 3–5 page marketing plan and sales strategy section of your business plan, in which you:
1. Revise the company’s target market based on the feedback received in the Week 3 discussion thread.
Be sure to include demographic, geographic, lifestyle, psychographic, purchasing patterns, and buying sensitivities in the target market
description.
2. Assess your chosen company’s market competition.
Use the factors listed in the graphic in your textbook labeled “Assess the Competition” (page 125), to assess the company’s market
competition.
When assessing the competition, specify the exact company and particular product or service you are competing against. For
example, Coca Cola offers a portfolio of products, such as water, fruit juice, and cola. Are you competing against Coca Cola’s fruit
juice product? Or its cola product?
Be sure to detail your plan to differentiate yourself from the competition.
3. Outline the company’s value proposition and create a marketing slogan/tagline for the product.
The value proposition tells your customers why they want to do business with you.
You need to know what message you want to convey in your marketing slogan before selecting the marketing vehicles in the next step.
4. Specify the marketing vehicles you will use to build your chosen company’s brand and justify the key reasons they will be effective.
Marketing vehicles are ways to promote your product. Examples include social media, sponsored events, trade shows, and sampling. You
will use a combination of these tactics.
