MKT 229 Final Project Guidelines and Rubric
Overview
In today’s fast-paced society, integrated marketing communications (IMC) is the key to building authentic relationships with customers. IMC ensures that a
cohesive message is being communicated to a company’s intended target audience as well as internal company stakeholders. Understanding how all marketing
disciplines can work together to communicate a single, unified message will help you create an engaging experience for consumers while increasing marketing
opportunities. IMC is not just the responsibility of the marketing department but a way to unite the company and create strategies that support company
growth through organized, consistent, and cohesive messaging.
For the final project, you will need to read the final project case study to understand how SNHU Pet Supply would like to use integrated marketing in a new
campaign. The case study will provide you with data the company has compiled and any other information that you will need to complete a detailed analysis of
the company’s current marketing strategies. You will then develop an integrated marketing communications plan that you would recommend to the company.
Throughout the exercise, you will need to consider the company’s brand, messaging, and strategies that will support an integrated campaign, as well as how you
will communicate that plan to internal and external stakeholders.
The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to build on learning experiences and ensure a
quality final submission. Milestones will be submitted in Modules Two, Four, and Five. You will also complete a peer review discussion in Module Six as an
opportunity to get feedback before you submit your final project in Module Seven.
Note: Although worksheets will be provided for Milestones One and Two, these are intended to be used only as tools to help you get started. The final project
itself should be submitted in essay format, as noted in the Guidelines for Submission section.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:
ï‚· Develop strategic marketing plans aligned with organizational goals for supporting growth and promoting a cohesive brand
ï‚· Develop appropriate communication strategies within the context of the professional marketing field for communicating a cohesive message to
intended stakeholders
ï‚· Discuss the use of key performance indicators (KPIs) across internal and external environments for communicating the performance of marketing
campaigns
ï‚· Recommend strategies and tactics that support an integrated marketing communications program for maximizing marketing opportunities
ï‚· Apply industry-standard ethical and professional standards for supporting marketing decisions
