However, each group can only have maximum 3 students in it. If you want to change or merge groups, please email me so I am aware.

Using the same consumer product that you have chosen from assignment 1, you will need to identify your target market and consider where you think your product is on a product life cycle. Your group will also need to conduct a competitive pricing analysis, determine your promotional objective, and outline a promotional plan.

1. Choose a
single target market to focus your marketing plan on
. Develop a detailed Target Market Profile. Your Target Profile can be submitted as a “Day in the Life”, a Collage, or any other format you deem appropriate that helps answer the question
“Who is the primary market to purchase my product?”
(ie: who is Most Likely to buy the most from me?) Your profile should include a summary of the customer’s needs and wants and a description based on variables such as demographics, psychographics, lifestyle etc. Be sure to quantify this target market.
