Feedback from Assignment 2, Part B:

Hi Willie,
Great job! Your company is developing quickly. You did well providing relevant feedback for improvement. Most of the sections were complete, just a few misses. Please see feedback in the rubric. Overall, well done!

You accurately described the feedback you received. You sufficiently explained how the feedback will be used to improve the marketing plan.

Brand Strategy: Very good and thorough with rationale. You described your branding strategy and the brand promise that your hypothetical company will provide to your customer. You included your brand name and rationale for that name. You created an original logo. You wrote an original slogan. An appropriate brand extension was provided.

Target Market: Both the primary and secondary target markets are relevant and justified. You used all the relevant bases of segmentation to describe your target market.

Positioning Statement and Perceptual Map: The perceptual map clearly shows where you fall within the competition. Your positioning statement is relevant and includes the statement of who you are talking to, who you are better than and why you are better than them.

Consumer Behavior: You showed a great use of scholarly resources to validate your target market’s consumer behavior while tying the behavior to your brand name, slogan, brand extension, and positioning statement. This explains how your branding elements will create the need recognition to begin the first phase of the buying process.

References and Citations: You provided the

appropriate number of four (4) or more academic peer reviewed

references, and showed a clear understanding of an academic reference.

All APA formatting is correct.

Overall, I really like the way that you wrote your paper. It was clearly written, and very well-organized, which made it very easy to follow your analysis.

Willie, I appreciate you taking the time to review my feedback.
