Marketing Portfolio Project

Your final portfolio for the class will be to create a marketing plan for an existing company and product/service of your choice. If you are choosing a large global company, you MUST create a new product. However, this new product may be an upgrade of an existing product. You will need to select a company that you have not used for your other assignments in the class. Your plan information should address all areas covered in this course for a marketing plan. The library’s page on Company Research can help you get started. The library database Gale Virtual Reference Library has a number of Business books to help identify a target market.

Use the marketing plan that is a required reading for this module for your final portfolio project, as a broad guide. The marketing plan document is essential to business strategy and is a focal point of this introductory class. The essential information of a marketing plan is outlined in this document and will serve as the blueprint for your portfolio project due this week.

Below is the outline to be followed for this assignment:

  • Executive Summary: This provides everything a busy executive needs to know to invest (or not) in your proposal. It captures your key proposal and recommendations/decision factors, and projected outcomes of the plan’s recommendations. Note this is not an introduction to the marketing plan. Typically, this is written after the entire marketing plan has been compiled. (1/2 page)
  • Company Overview (1/2 page)

  • Implementation Plan: Identify specific tactics and steps that will be taken (primarily focused on distribution, marketing communications, promotion, PR, for example). Create a chart depicting your advertising/promotion plan with actions, time frame, media choice, for example. Include a Marketing Plan.
  • Technology sub-section: How will marketing technology be used throughout the marketing process: marketing research, communications, promotions, monitoring, for example? (1 page)
  • Evaluation and Control Metrics: How will you monitor progress of outcomes in your plan? How will you define and measure success? Connect these to your objectives and goals. (1/2-1 page)
  • Conclusion (1 paragraph)

The following are requirements for your portfolio project:

  • 8-10 Word pages in the body of the paper. Estimated page counts are listed above in each section.

  • Apply marketing models, theory, terminology, and concepts throughout the plan.
  • A minimum of 6 references (in addition to course materials like the textbook or articles). At least 2 of these being peer-reviewed articles. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to search for credible, scholarly sources.
