One  of the goals of our program is to provide students with practical  assignments. This week’s assignment will be the first part of a  real-world sports marketing plan. There is no standard in regard to the  number of actual parts in a marketing plan. If you search online, the  number of parts will range in frequency. However, we’ve condensed  everything down into six areas considered crucial to a successful  marketing plan. Those items are as follows.

  1. Introduction: Includes a description of the organization, historical perspective, mission, SWOT, etc. (Week 2 Assignment). 
  2. Target Market: Who are you marketing to? (Week 3 Assignment)
  3. The 5Ps: Product, Price, Place, Promotion, and Positioning (Week 3 Assignment)
  4. Market Research, Demographics, and Competing Forms of Entertainment (Week 5 Assignment)
  5. Competitive Environment: What are the other competing forms of entertainment in the area? (Week 5 Assignment)
  6. Marketing  Strategies: Please provide a minimum of five (5) marketing strategies  that will be employed with the new minor league team in Charles Town, as  well as a proposed timeline for implementation (Week 7 Assignment).
  7. Results and Metrics: How will you measure the success of the marketing plan? (Week 7 Assignment) 

Background Information: The Carolina League

For  the purposes of this course, we will assume the existing Carolina League  is looking to expand by one team, and that Charles Town, WV is one of  the cities being considered for the expansion.

Currently, the Carolina League has sent a call for proposals to  various cities throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia,  Maryland, and West Virginia to represent the Carolina League expansion  teams. The city council of Charles Town, West Virginia believes their  city would make an excellent host for this team and wants to make a  proposal to the Carolina League to own one of the expansion teams. You  are a consultant in the sports industry. You have been hired by the City  Council of Charles Town, WV to develop a recommendation for creating an  organizational management structure for owning a new Carolina League  Single-A Minor League Baseball team.
