Marketing Plan Outline:
1. Do a SWOT, OK to bullet point the items.
2. Describe the target market segment you selected to address, use items like demographics, geographic etc.
3. Identify the type of product, consumer, industrial, convenience good etc.
4. Explain the extended product
5. Define the integrated marketing communications program (promotions), be specific as to what kinds of TV shows, papers, sales promotions etc.
6. Identify the one type of pricing objective you are using and explain why.
7. Show any promotional pricing.
8. Identify the type of distribution as direct/indirect, the type of distribution strategy as intensive etc. and then explain the distribution examples you would use.
9. For control and evaluation start with using an MIS to track sales and then explain what marketing strategy research methodologies you would use to see if YOUR PLAN IS WORKING.
10. Put each topic in a separate section with its own heading such as Market Segmentation, Product, Extended Product etc.
11. Be specific in your plan. Assume it must be actionable by someone else. No generalizations. I am looking for all of the above topics. Your plan must be logical and make sense. It does not have to be “factually” correct. This is not a research paper or a term paper, it is an example of a marketing plan.
