    Marketing Plan (Group assignment)
    This is group task in which you will be working in teams (3-5 people) to develop a marketing plan for a product or service of a given Australian or global brand. It will be a specific product or service rather than a company, as a company may have several products each requiring individual plans. It will be a product or service that is easy to research, one that has been written about regularly in marketing magazines or one that students have access to the information via world wide web. No direct contact is allowed with organizations (other than the brief provided by the industry representative) unless students have a prior personal or professional relationship. All research should otherwise be desk research, observation and educated guesses.
    Task and Requirements
    Students will be delivering the marketing plan in two parts:
    Assessment 2 / Marketing plan – written report
    Word count: 2500 (+/- 10%)
    Due: part a - Week 10 / part b – week 12
    Value: 50%
    1.       The report should be 2500 words long. It must be evident from the report introduction what was contribution of each member of the group to the report. Executive summary, introduction and conclusion do not count as an individual contribution. Refer to RMIT Study and Learning Centre online tutorial available at to assist you in structuring the report. Investing time before you start writing will result in a better report.
    2.       Team leader has to submit the report electronically via Blackboard by the due date. A Turnitin account has been set up to enable you to check your assignments for academic integrity. You should be able to submit any number of times but will need to be mindful that after the first submission you will get an instant report but for any further attempt the system can be slow and take 2 to 3 days to generate a report so you are advised not to leave it until the last moment.
    This assessment tasks enables you to build your ability to:

    •       Demonstrate an understanding of the underlying philosophy of the marketing concept and its strategic importance for Australian business. Demonstrate an understanding of the key marketing concepts and how they are applied within the Australian business context.
    •       Critically analyze marketing situations, offer marketing solutions and be able to justify and support their recommendations with marketing theory and examples from industry.
    •       Respond to real life marketing problems and produce solutions that meet the expectations of the audience.
    •       Conceptualize broadly the marketing process and how the various elements of the marketing mix, specific marketing tools and related theory fit together to make up the total “picture”.
    •       Communicate ideas, intentions and outcomes to diverse audiences and purposes

    Guidelines to Write Marketing Plan
    Part a - Situation analysis
    Value – 30%
    Word count – 1500 words (+/-10%)
    Due: week 10
    1. Defining the firm’s mission and overall objectives.
    Any individual product or service must be developed in line with the firms overall mission and objectives. All Body Shop products, for instance, must be environmentally friendly, all 3M products reflect the firm’s commitment to leading edge technology and the Foxtel vs. Optus Vision battle depicts these firms’ high risk for high reward business vision.
    By including the firm’s mission and overall objectives at the start of the planning process we are establishing the framework within which our product will operate in. We are also ensuring that our product will play its part in assisting the firm achieves its overall objectives.

    2. The Situation Analysis
    The purpose of the Situation Analysis is to describe and analyze the firm’s current position in the market place. The Situation Analysis attempts to answer the question “where are we now?” by taking a ‘snapshot’ of the current situation and explaining not only what is happening in this marketplace but why, who and what are the key players, forces and dynamics that drive it.
    The Situation Analysis also helps to identify key leverage points or significant areas of strength that can be used to improve the products market position. The situation analysis is carried out in three stages:
    External Analysis analysis of variables outside the firms control
    Internal Analysis analysis of variables within the firms control
    SWOT Analysis identifies the key issues affecting your products / firm’s performance
    Situational Analysis
    Students will be given a product (goods or service), and will prepare a Situation Analysis of the environment which the product operates in.
    As a guide you should include the following:
    1.     Company Mission.
    Brief company background and the overall guiding vision of the company, or what this company stands for.
    2.     Company Objectives.
    Corporate objectives to be achieved over the next 12 months. (These are different to product objectives - refer to the Assignment description if you are still unsure what is required). These objectives help to set the scene that your product operates within. They will show whether the company is looking to grow or consolidate, be innovative and take risks or be reactive and conservative in its approach.
    3.     Market overview.
    Describe and analyze the market place and the trends and forces operating within it. Include analysis such as:
    •       Definition of the market or category
    you need to very clearly define and describe the market your product operates in. The broader the definition of your market the more competitors there are likely to be and the narrower the definition the less scope there is for market segmentation and finding new users for your product.
    Ask yourself whether you are analyzing the ‘confectionary market’ or only the Chocolate Bar’ category. If you are concentrating on the Chocolate Bar category, it is very worthwhile to show where it fits in to the overall market. You can do this by describing the confectionary market and defining the various product categories that fit into it, such as, chocolate bars, boxed chocolates, children’s treats (Kinder Surprise), and confectionary bags and so on. You could then go on to describe what proportion of the confectionary market it represents and
    compare the growth trends of the total market and this particular category. For instance, it would be significant to know that the chocolate bar market represents 25% of the confectionary market and although the confectionary is stagnant, Chocolate Bars are still growing at 7-8% per annum. (You should also specify the types of products included in your definition of the market/ category).
    •       Market Size
    what is the size of the market? Quantify the size of the market in volume (000’s cases/ kilos) and/ or value ($000) terms.
    •       Market Potential
    is this a growth market? Can you estimate next year’s growth rate? Is this an attractive market to be in? What stage of the life cycle is this market in?
    •       Market Structure
    what is the competitive nature of this market? Is it a monopoly? Oligopoly?
    •       Trends
    analyze the macro environmental trends affecting this market place. Include only those issues that are relevant to your market. Consider the demographic, economic, natural, cultural, technological and political/ legal trends.
    4.                   Competitors
    •       Consider both direct and indirect competitors in your analysis.
    •       Include information in your analysis that helps to identify not only what your competitors are doing but how they think, how innovative they are and how they may respond to a competitive threat. You should consider issues such as:
    Market share
    corporate culture
    strategic alliances
    international links
    financial strengths
    marketing expertise
    innovativeness and so on ..
    •       You may even like to do a SWOT analysis on your key competitors.
    5.     Segmentation and Buyer Behavior.
    In this section of the plan you are trying to understand the various customer segments in the marketplace. You should attempt to divide the market into discrete segments.
    Your aim is to build ‘profiles’ of each segment to aid in our understanding of what, where, when, why and how often these customers buy products in this market.
    You may even identify a segment that is currently not being served and in doing so you have uncovered a major opportunity.
    Discuss in this section the type of buying process involved in your market place, how decisions are made, who influences these decisions and any other issues that are important to the decision making process.
    6.     Internal Analysis
    The internal analysis is a review of the products performance and current marketing strategy. The purpose of this review is to establish how well the current marketing strategy is working to achieve the objectives set for the product. It is a review of performance against targets such as market share, sales, profitability and so on. It also evaluates specific product, price, promotion and distribution strategies to identify areas of strength and weakness for the firm. Identify the firm’s existing strategies and analyze their effectiveness, with a view to developing new refined strategies in Assignment 2. Your analysis will also help to identify Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats for the SWOT analysis.
    7.     SWOT Analysis
    SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. The SWOT analysis is a summary of the external and internal analyses, highlighting the critical issues that must be addressed by the marketing plan. When the SWOT analysis is completed, the firm has a clear idea of its:
    •       Strengths
    what do we do better than competitors?
    What advantages do we have over competitors?
    •       Weaknesses
    In what areas do we need to improve marketing mix in order to be more competitive?
    •       Opportunities
    what new opportunities exist in the market place for our product?
    •       Threats
    Can we anticipate any threats to our business from the external environment that may challenge or weaken our position?

    Word count  - 1000 words (+/-10%)
    Due – week 12
    The stage 2 concentrates on the planning phase of the marketing cycle. It addresses:
    a)       Where do we want to be?
    This question is answered by
    1.       Identifying marketing strategy. Will there be a new product introduced? Or will the students develop strategies for growth and downsizing using the product/market expansion grid
    2.       developing the product objectives (for market share, profitability and so on),
    3.       defining our Target Market (who is this plan/ product aimed at)
    4.       Specifying our Desired Product Positioning (what does this product stand for in the consumers mind).
    b)       How will we get there?
    In this phase of the plan, we develop the strategies and action plans to ensure we achieve our objectives. These strategies and action plans revolve around the 4p’s (or 7p’s for a service).
    We also specify a control program to track and monitor our performance and this includes marketing research projects and budget controls.
    Marketing strategies and marketing mix
    As a guide, your plan should include:
    1. Objectives
    These are specific objectives for the brand/ product / service  - this plan is being developed for. Objectives should be SMART. (Specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time frame specific).
    2. Target Market Defined.
    Who are you aiming your product at? Do you have more than one target market? (Mothers and children?)
    3. Desired Positioning.
    Does your brand have a unique position in the market? What attributes/ benefits/ advantages is your positioning based on? You may like to use a perceptual map to illustrate your positioning.
    4. Strategies using 4p or 7p framework (strategies broadly describe how you plan to achieve your objectives).
    Physical Evidence.
    5. Action Program.
    Detailed implementation program identifying what will be done, who is responsible, Marketing Budgets and deadlines.
