MARK2268 (A01 / O01) Business to Business Marketing  Fall 2022 – B2B Marketing Strategy Paper   

ASSIGNMENT OVERVIEW  

The goal of this assignment is for students to come up with a Marketing Strategy in the Business to  Business (B2B) realm.  

Students are advised to create a NEW B2B innovation and give marketing advice as a consultant would  on how to maximize the marketing impact in the particular industry the company competes. This can be  a completely NEW (never thought of) B2B innovation or it can be a SIGNIFICANT improvement on an  existing B2B product or innovation. In short, this is not a paper to report back on what a company has  already done.  

The Assignment achieves several learning outcomes:  

 Differentiate business to business (B2B) marketing from consumer marketing,   Recognize the different ways of segmenting business markets,  

 Construct a business-to-business marketing strategy for an organization,  

 Develop a marketing strategy that will draw in more business customers to your organization,   Recognize appropriate product offerings to satisfy customer needs, and  

 Determine the appropriate distribution channels to create strong levels of customer service.  

The Assignment has been structured to be delivered in two (2) sections allowing for instructor feedback  and student revisions after the first section has been submitted. The strategy of delivering the  assignment in multiple sections has been chosen by the instructor to guide effort by the online students  throughout the term and ensure materials are being completed in a timely fashion.  

The student(s) have a choice to complete this Assignment independently, pairs (2 people), or in groups  up to four (4) people. In all cases, student(s) must register on Moodle in the section entitled Your B2B  Marketing Strategy Team by September 18th, 2022 by 11:59 PM of their intent of submitting as an  individual or their commitment to working together in pairs / groups. If the Instructor is not notified by  that time, students will be responsible for submitting an independent Assignment. There are  advantages and disadvantages to working alone or in a pair throughout an online course. Please  consider those before notifying the instructor. All choices are final.

DUE DATES  

There are four (4) specific due dates when it comes to B2B Strategy Project:  

An optional 150-word synopsis of the B2B Innovation is due on September 25th, 2022 @ 11:59  PM via email (gillesp@nait.ca). This provides some validation of the B2B Innovation prior to  submission of Section 1. This synopsis allows groups to provide some additional guidance and  direction from the instructor prior to completing significant work on Section 1. It is optional (not  required), and though students may always contact the instructor for guidance and support,  setting a due date allows for time for the instructor to respond and time for groups to modify  their B2B innovation.  
Section 1 is due on October 9th, 2022 @ 11:59 PM via Moodle.  
Section 2 is due on November 13th, 2022 @ 11:59 PM via Moodle.  
Students will showcase their proposal via their YouTube video (see Section 3 for details). The  instructor will provide an optional MS Teams Online Session for students who are interested to  view those presentations. It provides students a chance to see other groups work and marketing  strategies which is quite beneficial.  

SUBMISSION DETAILS  

Both (2) sections of the B2B Marketing Strategy Report are to be submitted on Moodle before the due  dates above as an MS Word or Adobe PDF file. For Section 2, the YouTube videos are not to be uploaded  to Moodle but be uploaded to YouTube and set to public for the MS Teams Online Session. The link to  the YouTube video should be provided in the Comments Section of the Moodle submission for Section  2.
