Final Course Project: Marketing Plan
This assignment requires you to perform the following:
- Select a product or service for which you would like to develop a marketing plan. This may be a business idea you may have thought about in the past. Do not select a product or service that is currently on the market.
- The plan should be no less than 17 pages in length NOT including your title page, reference page(s), attachments, and appendices. Use Standard APA style, double-spacing. Grammar, spelling and usage are a part of the grade. All reference citations to source material must follow guidelines provided in the course materials. Your reference citations must be noted in the body of your discussion so I can determine what information was derived from what specific outside source.
Provide at least five (5) outside references (other than the textbook or Wikipedia) you think would be applicable to support your Marketing Plan Project.
