Benchmark Digital Business Plan
This part of the Conscious Capitalism simulation assignment is individual. You will work with your team members and determine an appropriate digital marketing plan to include in your Benchmark – Digital Business Plan assignment.
In Topic 5, your team developed a business plan to support your marketing division and justify an additional capital investment from corporate headquarters to move forward. Digital marketing is a critical part of marketing strategies today because of the prevalence of social media and other web-based technologies, online media outlets, and mobile Internet and applications.
Based on the current position of your new division in the simulation and your goals for coming quarters, analyze market consumer data, competitive data, and real-world digital marketing options to develop a summarized digital marketing plan for your division that benefits growth and considers competition. In 500-750 words, address the following:
- Digital marketing strategies for your division: Discuss the decision to shift all or a portion of your division’s promotional budget in the simulation to digital marketing. Discuss the digital marketing strategies that will be used to promote organizational growth. Consider factors including B2B verses B2C considerations in digital media, target market coverage, exposure, analytics, and costs.
- Digital media impact: How would the addition of digital media options influence your division’s overall promotional plan? Consider the five elements of the promotion mix.
- Digital media types and options: Include examples of specific social media platforms, blogs, websites, applications, etc., and a justification for each based on your division’s goals. Use real-world data by researching the outlets/platforms, reviewing media kits when available, and citing available sources on exposure, targeting options, etc.
- Monitor digital media: How will you monitor effectiveness and adjust your strategy based on your division’s goals?
You are required to include both academic and professional references (e.g., data on analytics, platform use data) to justify your plan.
