Marketing Research Plan Instructions

Please make sure that you abide by ALL the instructions.

Based upon your textbook readings, you should now feel confident in your marketing research skills. You must now choose an organization of your preference.

This organization can be for-profit, non-profit (including church), government, or an educational organization. If you are currently working you are encouraged to utilize your current organization.

The Marketing Plan (Section 3) is to be written as a word document that is to be submitted to an executive team. The material presented in section 3 may be written in a report fashion that follow APA 6th edition standards.

You are to include headings and sub-heading outlining to required information. These headings and sub-headings are to abide by APA 6th edition formatting standards. Your plan is to be based upon current and past research with regards to the appropriate context.

In support of your plan you will include an 8-10 page literature review. This literature review is to add the element of validity throughout your plan. For example, if you are identifying the target audience in section three of your plan as being females between the ages of 25-30, you will need to include a section in your literature review where you have found this to be a viable target audience.

YOU CANNOT GUESS ON ANY OF THE REQUIRED SECTIONS. Said differently, in your plan if you offer suggestions I will go back through your literature review and see how you arrived at these suggestions.

If you are merely guessing you will not receive credit for that section of the plan. You literature review is to be included in the appendix of the submission and is to follow APA 6th edition standards.

The entire submission should be a minimum of 12 pages including your abstract and not the reference page.
