Analyze impact of marketing mix on overall brand perception


Project Assignment

Overview

The project for this course is a strategic brand analysis. You will assume the role of an independent marketing consultant tasked with analyzing brands that are in the following stages of a brand life cycle:

• Process of brand development
• Brand growth and reinvention
• Brand maturity and decline

Throughout these stages, you will determine what critical decisions need to occur at each stage to build and grow the brand and keep it relevant as it matures, as well as what decisions you will make for a declining brand. As a consultant, you will evaluate how the marketing mix is applied at each stage of the brand life cycle in order to identify areas for improvement. You will analyze the role and function of various stakeholders throughout the cycles. Additionally, you will provide solutions, recommendations, and marketing strategies for the brand at each stage to help it achieve its goals. The strategic brand analysis will allow you to apply knowledge you have acquired throughout this course to brands at each stage and to apply your knowledge of key aspects of branding, including brand equity, positioning, differentiation, relevance, and consumer engagement.

For your final project, you will describe the attributes of the brands, identify the 4P's of the brand, and recommend marketing strategies to effectively help companies achieve their branding goals. Each activity and milestone for this course will prepare you for developing the proposal.

The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Three, Four, and Six. The final product will be submitted in Module Seven.

In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:

• Determine impact of employees on the success or failure of a brand for informing marketing strategies
• Develop appropriate components of marketing strategies for a product or service that align with a brand's mission
• Develop recommendations based on the marketing mix for informing brand strategies
• Establish the role and function of internal and external stakeholders for ensuring the effective management of a brand
