Topic Proposal Week 1 (10 points) 

You will select a topic for the Week 1 assignment, and thereafter, all related assignments (the draft in Week 4, the breakeven analysis in Week 5, and the final marketing plan in Week 7) MUST be on the same topic. You may not change your marketing plan topic without approval from your instructor. Your topic should be for a business, product, or service that you would like to start (no multilevel marketing structures, please). Because this is an applied project and not a research paper, please do not select a corporation such as Starbucks or Coca-Cola as your topic. You are to apply the course concepts to this project. If you are interested in coffee restaurants, for example, you may wish to select your own cappuccino bar as your topic and then use information from companies like Starbucks or Seattle’s Best Coffee for ideas and competitive research as you work on your project. If you have questions about your topic, don’t hesitate to post them in the Q & A Forum this week.

For Week 1, please write a two-page description of your company, product, or service. It should be a new business, product, or service. Discuss ownership and company structure. Describe the business, product, or service. Write your mission statement and include your marketing goals.


The marketing plan for this new business aims to provide further analysis of the feasibility of this venture.  Assumptions about management team and existing company situation will be laid out to identify…

Price Strategy/Breakeven Analysis Week 5 (50 points) 

One of the most challenging decisions faced by marketers is setting the price for their products and services. In order to select the right price, you need to ensure that you’ll be able to cover your costs and meet customers’ needs at a price that they are willing to pay. You will need to perform a breakeven analysis to determine the best price. Chapters 13 and 14 outline six steps that organizations follow to set price. Follow these six steps (as listed on page 322 in the text) to set prices for your product or service and perform a breakeven analysis. Submit your price strategy/breakeven analysis via the Week 5 Dropbox for grading and feedback. Be sure to incorporate any feedback provided by your instructor into your final Week 7 Course Project.
