This week it is time to put all the pieces together and add the “executive summary”. The executive summary is a brief overview of your plan, usually 1 – 2 pages long, and is placed at the beginning section of the Marketing Plan.
You will use your assignments from the previous weeks to complete your Marketing Plan. Additional information may also be used/required. Be sure to incorporate any feedback you may have received from your instructor when submitting your final Marketing Plan.

References must come from sources such as, scholarly journals found in EBSCOhost, CNN, online newspapers such as, The Wall Street Journal, government websites, etc. Sources such as, Wikis, Yahoo Answers, eHow, blogs, etc. are not acceptable for academic writing.
