Assessment 3 requires the submission of TWO items (i.e. one Word file and one PowerPoint file).
You are to write and make a presentation on marketing objectives, marketing strategy and action programs for the new product chosen in Assessment 2. The written component should be 1500-2000 words maximum in length not including the title page and reference list. The presentation component will be in PowerPoint format with voice-over limited to 5 slides and no longer than 5 minutes in duration.
Assume that the new product chosen in assessment 2 is viable for market entry into Australia. The decision has now been made by senior management to launch this new product into Australia sometime in 2016/2017. Your task in Assessment 3 is to prepare marketing objectives, marketing strategy and action programs for the first six months from product launch.
You will need to address the following criteria:
1. Propose and justify three (3) marketing objectives you think are achievable within the first six months of product launch (e.g. sales targets, product awareness, customer retention and satisfaction, brand management);
2. Justify preferred market segments, targeted customers, and intended positioning;
3. Propose and justify marketing strategy for each of the 4Ps (i.e. product, price, place, and promotion); and
4. Propose action programs for the first six months of product launch to achieve stated marketing objectives.
This is an individual assessment (no groups).
