Discuss your plan for establishing the viability of this product before launching it.

For this assignment, you will work in groups to select a country in which a currently established New Zealand company is not marketing its products/services.
Here the selected product is Fontera NZ dairy company and specified product is butter and the target country is India (especially West India).
As the head of marketing and his team, each group (2 people of your own choice) will prepare a proposal trying to convince the CEO and senior managers of the New Zealand company that launching this product (i.e Fontera (Butter) in country India is a good business idea and explain how to ensure it will work in this country.
The primary purpose of your proposal is to demonstrate that your group understands enough about the country and its culture to argue that the country will be a successful target market for the product /service you have selected.
You want to convince your CEO and senior management team that marketing the product / service in the other country is a viable approach, so that they will go ahead with the development of a complete marketing plan. Aim to answer any questions your senior management team could have when faced with making the decision to go ahead.
Please note that you are only required to provide a preliminary plan for introducing and marketing the product / service, NOT a complete marketing plan.
The proposal will address
� the business opportunity (the market)
� your product or service
� the competitive landscape
� your positioning
� and your communication strategy (paying special attention to cultural differences).
Again, the focus of this assignment is on cultural differences and how to create an effective marketing communication plan for those differences.
To demonstrate your knowledge of the target market you should include some demographic data and other country data graphs in your proposal. Your team should clearly demonstrate that they have thought through what it will take to market the product / service successfully in the assigned country.
After confirming your New Zealand company, chosen service and target market, you will conduct your own research. Your proposal must include a minimum of ten (10) extra sources using APA referencing style.
The proposal will be formatted as a formal report. For more information, consult Chapter 5 in your textbook.
Remember to use message-driven headings to direct the audience. Additionally, the proposal is to be persuasive, which means you will find the pyramid(as discussed in class) a useful way to think through your argument.
You must submit your proposal through the appropriate Turnitin Box on the course Moodle site.
