Individual Case Study Report

Task description: In this Case Study you will demonstrate your understanding of the functional purpose of an integrated marketing mix. You are required to use marketing theory as a framework for your Case Study. This theory can be sourced from your text, and importantly from peer-reviewed journal articles, which are available from the library databases. To start your search please refer to page 7 of the Unit Outline for a list of useful Journals.

To the theoretical framework, you will apply Case specific research to evidence your understanding of marketing theory in a practical context. You are required to choose ONE (1) New Product from the ‘Case Choice’ list available from the ‘Assessment 2’ folder in MyPIA. This choice of New Product will become the focus of your Case Study report….ORDER NOW

Once chosen, you are required to undertake your own research into how the New Product is marketed to consumers in Australia. This research should be conducted using only publicly available sources (e.g., websites, trade journals, industry reports, magazine articles, blogs, reviews), and your own observations. Individual Case Study Report

Guidelines for structure of Case Study document 1.         Introduce the marketing concepts that will be addressed in the Case Study (Target Market, Value Proposition and Marketing Mix), and the chosen New Product.

2.         Use marketing theory to discuss the purpose of Market Segmentation. Based on insights gained from your case research, construct a ‘profile’ of who you perceive to be the New Product’s Target Market; that is, link perceived consumer characteristics to specific segmentation variables and explain ‘who’ the New Product is targeting.

3.         Use marketing theory to discuss the importance of identifying and reinforcing a products’ Value Proposition. Using evidence from Case research, clearly identify and discuss the chosen New Product’s Value Proposition and perceptual ‘positioning’ in the market.

4.         Integrate marketing theory and evidence from Case research to discuss the function of the Product element of the marketing mix. In particular, identify and focus discussion on the Product elements that communicate the New Product’s Value Proposition to the Target Market.

5.         Integrate marketing theory and evidence from Case research to discuss the function of the Price element of the marketing mix. In particular, identify and focus discussion on those elements of Pricing that communicate the New Product’s Value Proposition to the Target Market.

6.         Integrate marketing theory and evidence from Case research to discuss the function of the Place element of the marketing mix. In particular, identify and focus discussion on those elements of Placement that communicate the New Product’s Value Proposition to the Target Market.

7.         Integrate marketing theory and evidence from Case research to discuss the function of the Promotion element of the marketing mix. In particular, identify and focus discussion on those elements of Promotion that communicate the New Product’s Value Proposition to the Target Market.

8.         Conclude with a summary opinion on how effective you believe the elements of the Marketing Mix have been integrated to deliver the Value Proposition to the Target Market.
