ASSIGNMENT
Develop a comprehensive marketing plan for a product or service of your choice. The product or
service can be new or existing, for-profit or not-for-profit. Plans will be evaluated for completeness
(does the plan address all relevant aspects?) and coherence (does the plan logically hold together?).
This assignment can be done individually or in groups of up to four. See Appendix 2, p. 557 in your
text for guidance. Additionally, an online search for ‘marketing plan’ yields many resources.
When you have selected a product or service, submit your idea to me in written form, along with a
brief justification/explanation. Do this as soon as possible, but not later than Thursday, March 26.
Don’t go too far into the project without having your topic approved!
This assignment is valued at 60 possible points, fifty for the document and ten for the presentation.
All assignments are to be typed (12-point, 1” margins) unless otherwise specified. Assignments are due
at the beginning of the class period.

As stated in the TTU Catalog: “It is the aim of the faculty of Texas Tech University to foster a spirit of
complete honesty and a high standard of integrity. The attempt of students to present as their own any
work that they have not honestly performed is regarded by the faculty and administration as a serious
offense and renders the offenders liable to serious consequences, possibly suspension.”

Any student who, because of a disability, may require special arrangements in order to meet the course
requirements should contact the instructor as soon as possible to make any necessary arrangements.

to a student until appropriate verification from Student Disability Services has been provided. For
