Guide:

Preface:

You are a marketing consultant to The Waters Bottling Company (WBC) of Munsonville, NH. They have never done any marketing for their water before, so they will need to be educated as to the role of marketing in their company’s success. They started their company last year and want to “do it right” according to their president and founder, Dr. M. Waters. (The M stands for Muddy so he prudently only uses the initial. He also is rather fond of Blues music, which he would like to incorporate into the marketing plan in some way.) They want to sell their crystal-clear granite filtered mountain water to the “right” market. It is your job to identify that target market. At this point, they don’t even know how the product should be packaged or a name to identify it. They will be relying on you for all of the details to make this product successful. They are well funded and ready to bring this product to market.

Use the attached Marketing Planning Guide to build your marketing plan for their naturally mineral rich pure mountain water. Be sure to relate the marketing concepts/ theories to this product/ company as you build the marketing plan over the length of the course.
