Be sure to use subject headers for each of the questions asked. Your paper needs to contain at least eight headers (i.e., introduction header, at least six headers for the six parts of the question, conclusion header)
Helpful Tips:
Your marketing plan can focus on a new product or service idea of your own or an existing product or service that you think deserves its own dedicated campaign. Just don’t pick something that you’ve already seen being actively marketed.
For example, after completing a SWOT analysis for McDonald’s, one might propose marketing new concepts like a McVeggie burger or an adult Happy Meal. Further afield, one might propose a whole new chain of pay-to-visit indoor McPlayground Centers. Or relative to existing menu offerings, one might suggest a dedicated marketing campaign for say “burgers at breakfast” or after-midnight snacking via the drive-through.
