In this class you are expected to learn to think on your own and will never be punished – get a bad grade for doing so. Try something radical in your plan or presentation and find how it empowers you! What is Learning About?
It is growth via experience. Apply textbook theories to on-the-street problems – only try to sell Innovators and Early Adopters since Laggards don’t buy. An example is the ban on using graphics to illustrate an example by the APA. The Chinese are correct in that a picture is worth 1000’s of words. It’s a road map to find what your position is relative to others Without a plan you have no idea of where you Without are going and any road will take you. Document your dreams with a roadmap – in this class the map is the Marketing Plan. map Make sure to chase what you love and know and Make not delude yourself via arrogance or ignorance both of which can destroy your plans both Identify market voids and adversarial weakness Identify and bet it all in those arenas and even if you fail you will have succeeded in altering markets. you Market Planning Strategy Market EXPERIENTIAL CLASS WORK EXPERIENTIAL

aEach student will analyze one chapter in the textbook and deliver it to the class via a Power Point presentation. Outline the top 10 theories from one chapter and enhance it with at least one web citation. t Grades for presentations are based on Breadth (Summarize), Professional delivery (look at audience), Comprehension and thoroughness of materials t There are no excuses for missing class when a presentation is due (call from the jail or the hospital); no-shows fail in school and in life Being nervous is good. It makes you try harder and be better!
Each slide should take no more than 30 seconds. It will not be good if you do not start with 5 minutes, reduce to 2 and then pare it to 30 seconds. You are expected to summarize the materials in a professional manner. The 4 P’s in Marketing a Product is Research Driven The
The Product (Wrist-Net) cannot be Promoted (advertised), Priced Product Promoted (high/low) or Placed (retail store where sold) without insight into (high/low) Placed the end user (target consumer/market) without adequate research into the opportunities and threats in those markets Product Strategy: Always define the product in terms of its attraction to target consumer via specifications, benefits, unique features that make it special – a rendering saves many words Promotional Strategy: Advertising and publicity must be aimed at target maraket and build brand awareness Pricing Strategy: Do a competitive analysis of what similar products sell for and price range – high, low, medium - relative to the price elasticity – low price sells more Place Strategy: Develop sales distribution strategy – consumer products will sell through retail, direct or on the web; a service may be delivered in a Place of business Key Questions to Pose in Marketing & Business Planning
What – Who – Where – When – Why - How
WHAT business are you in? Define Target Markets with demographic analysis WHO are the Primary, Secondary & Tertiary Customers or Clients? WHERE will the customer want to buy? Online, Retail, Direct, Distribution strategy? WHEN will they buy? Is business seasonal? Frequency of return visits? Sales cycle? WHY? What is the motivating force of your product or service that appeals to your customer? Is it different enough to make a difference? Is price what they can afford? HOW? Can I get the bucks to make it happen and am I qualified to operate or should I pay someone else to run the joint? Who provides the seed $? Have I put up enough? Begin by defining What business you are in with an appropriate mission and define the Primary demographic, geographic, psychographic customer characteristics. Where defines the place or distribution strategy to get to the low fruit clients. When is about seasonality and sales cycle or frequency of visits. Why demands that you differentiate your product from Brand X ala benefits and features – go where the pack fears. If unaware of your primal advantage you are in trouble. How will you find the seed $? Angels want to think you can’t fail as you have personally mortgaged you to the hilt and have put every cent you have on the table. No one will give you money to make a big salary? Scrap the idea! Marketing Plan Research Paper Requirements Marketing PC generated with APA citations on all graphs or illustrations; Graphics to enhance the imagery is okay in this class as “humans think not in words but in images” Paper must include a minimum of 3 bibliographical citations that will be tied to the Reference Section at the end. Make a back up copy as the instructor keeps your paper Use 12 Point Times New Roman Type in the paper and at least 24-point type on your Power Point presentation that will summarize your findings. It will be delivered in session #15 The Power Point presentation should include no more than a dozen slides and take approximately 20 minutes The Marketing Plan Paper is due in week fifteen Business Plan Topics to Choose From Business

Brand names are key in mass communications, conjuring an image to sell Brand products/services; P.T. Barnum made midget Charles Stratton into General Tom Thumb; Henry Deutschendorph, Jr. didn’t sell like the moniker John Denver Thumb; A brand name should be easy to say, spell & remember, fit the product, tell a story, work in various mediums and be eye-candy

CONTACT: By Gene N. Landrum, PhD Phone: 239-597-9545 E-Mail: [email protected] SUBJECT: The Superman Syndrome – You become what you think ISBN: 0-595-34697-9 Have you looked within for a mythical hero-mentor for transformation? Dr. Gene admonishes everyone to tattoo Superman on their psyche to permit them to leap tall adversaries and think faster than a speeding bullet!
Gene Landrum’s 12th book, The Superman Syndrome, looks into that mystical science of selfmotivation that he describes as Mythical-Hero-Mentoring. Sounds juvenile but those intrepid souls capable of stepping into a metaphorical phone booth and donning a Superman persona are better equipped for dealing with life’s vagaries than those who remain grounded in tradition. Those individuals who can become what they are not can end up being more than they could otherwise be. Landrum uses this theme for Chapter One that is titled, Titans are Synthesized Supermen on a trek to omnipotence. Effective Entrepreneurial Communications Effective
