Term paper: Team assignment on developing a brand community plan
The project has two objectives.
1.
First, it will help you to gain hands-on experience in applying what you learn in class to a realistic marketing situation.
2.
Second, it will give you experience working as part of a team.
Your group will then be responsible for developing a brand community plan for a new or existing product or service. The term paper may include a market research project of some type. The term paper is expected to be written in a style that is appropriate for a university paper assignment, and therefore bullet-point lists should be avoided. For an excellent description with regard to writing an academic paper, please see https://libguides.usc.edu/writingguide/introduction.
It is expected that you use APA format for the paper, referencing and bibliography (https://apastyle.apa.org/). The use the referencing functionality embedded in Word is also required (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnVq_BpwP2E&t=113s). In addition, the term paper should be free of errors in spelling and punctuation. Please include reasonable number of figures, and tables (which may also be included in an Appendix). The submission of the papers is to be done electronically via E-Mail in Word format to the instructor.
Instructions for the papers
The teams for the paper will be formed during the second week.
Your team has to come up with an idea for the brand community paper by the end of the second week.
The brand community must be written in APA style. If the paper is not written in APA style it will be rejected.
You are expected to use approximately 30-40 references in your paper. Please use only reliable sources (not f.ex. Wikipedia).
You must use APA style as a referencing style embedded in Word.
The expected length of the marketing plan is 6-8000 words without references, cover page, and table of contents.
Be very careful with plagiarism. If any part of the paper is plagiarised, the whole paper will be rejected.
