The marketing plan format is one that is utilized by major corporations all over the country. However, writing a comprehensive marketing plan is a difficult and challenging task, yet, the ability to write such a plan is critical to the development of a marketing manager and an organization. As you draw to the culmination of this course, apply all that you have learned to develop a comprehensive marketing plan.

Directions:

Identify a company you would like to use for this assignment. This should be an organization that you are familiar with, or have access to their information. You will complete a comprehensive marketing plan, which will include an analysis of their current market situation. In other words, ask yourself: Is the industry growing? What is the market share for the organization that they represent? Who is the dominant player in the marketplace? Remember, you will need to justify your approach using market research and data.

The second step in the process is the actual writing of the plan. Think about the following: What are the goals and objectives for the organization? What is the timing of the plan? What resources will be required to achieve the plan? What are the financial goals?

In your marketing plan, be sure to include the following sections:

  1. Executive Summary and Table of Contents

In the executive summary, make sure you address all the main goals and objectives of your plan. These goals and objectives need to be clear, measurable, and reasonable.

  1. Situational Analysis

A situational analysis presents a snapshot of the market in its current state by describing the company’s products/services, target segments, distribution networks, and position of the products/services in the segment, along with competing offerings and relative positioning. It includes current and future assessment of the business conditions and challenges. Within your situational analysis, analyze all the following points:

  • Market summary
  • SWOT analysis
  • Competitor analysis
  • Product offering
  • Keys to success
  • Critical issues
  • Pricing
  1. Marketing Strategy

The marketing strategy describes the planned direction and goals of the marketing activities, incorporating facts and assumptions about the market size, growth, and financial objectives. Think about the following questions: Where do you see your business going in the next 3-5 years? What is unique about your product portfolio? How will you tell the consumer about your products and unique value proposition? How will you stay connected to your target market’s needs and wants? How will you price your product? Within your market analysis, be sure to address the following:

  • Mission
  • Marketing objectives
  • Product positioning
  • Marketing mix (4 Ps)
  • Marketing research
  1. Financials

The financials of the marketing plan describe a set of five-year revenue, cost, and profit projections for the marketing plan, including any initial startup costs, sales by channel and segment, and profit margins. Think about the following questions: How much do you plan to sell? What are your factory cost targets? What is your profit target by percent and dollar amount? Remember to include the following in your financials:

  • Sales Forecast
  • Profit targets
  1. Controls

The controls of the marketing plan describe the budget tactical activities for implementing the plan, as well performance benchmarks for each activity. These include pricing, product configuration, promotion, and distribution performance benchmarks, and plans for changing any of the parameters if performance measures are not met. They are in place to measure forecast and profit attainment. Forecasts should be reviewed monthly and quarterly. Secondly, a 12-month calendar should be developed to clearly target specific dates for product introductions and promotional activity. 

Remember to include the following:

  • Milestones
  • Implementations and timelines
  1. Summary

The summary of the marketing plan should summarize the plan by summarizing the size and scope of the opportunity, and reiterating the STP (segmentation, targeting, positioning) and 4 P (product, price, place, promotion) elements of the plan. It should tell the reader that the plan is real, how you will win, and why it is worth pursuing as an organization (RRW). This section should be no longer than one page.

Remember to review the grading criteria as you write the plan to ensure you address all needed elements.

Use the grading criteria to guide your report. Make sure you include details within your analysis to support your ideas. Use proper grammar, spelling, and APA style throughout. For more information on modeling the buying process, refer to your textbook.

Write an 8–12-page report in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A1.doc.

By Monday, December 19, 2016, deliver your assignment to the M5: Assignment 1 Dropbox.

Does a negative accounting profit imply a negative or zero economic profit?

No, only if we keep the purchasing power one the monetary unit constant.

If the purchasing power of money is increasing (we have an fall of prices in general), we can have an negative accounting profit but an positive economic profit (Accounting profit – Interest – change in the purchasing power of money).

An example is that an company paid 100 dollars for the factors plus 10% interest that will be paid in the end of the period, in the final period the total cost will be 110, if the company had an receipt of 105 this can be saw as a loss, however when accounting for the true profit the company compares the current, or better saying immediate past and very short run future, prices with the receipt. So if the machinery and works and etc., are now costing 70 and even without adjusting the interest to expected fall in the future prices, he will now that his economic profit is 25 (70 for the prices of the factors plus 10 from the previous interest contract).

The economic profit is the liquid real income of the company at the end of the given time.

The opposite is true, positive accounting profits can be negative economic profits.

The European Union has been the largest experiment in supranationalism in the history of the world.

The European Union has been the largest experiment in supranationalism in the history of the world. This attempt to unite over 500 million people under the umbrella of the EU has brought benefits to its member countries, but it has also come with its burden of costs. The tensions caused by membership were recently highlighted when the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU. For this forum, find an article about a particular aspect of EU policy, such as economic policy, immigration policy, environmental policy, or agricultural policy, and discuss how that policy has caused tension between the EU and between member nations. What effect do you think these tensions will have on the future of the EU?
