Product Marketing Proposal Template
PandaTip: “Product marketing” can refer to: marketing of a traditional retail product/good, or a type of online marketing that focuses on product promotion and the bottom of the funnel. The second is more common, especially in recent years. This proposal is designed to work for both, but the examples are geared more towards online product marketing.
PandaTip: This is designed for a marketing/consulting company, referred to as [COMPANY], who is sending a proposal to a client, [CLIENT]. If you are an independent consultant and/or do not have a business name, you can replace [COMPANY] with your own name and remove mentions of “group of marketing professionals”, etc.

Launching your brand or services can be a daunting task in today’s business environment. Competition is fierce in almost every trade. To carve out your own niche in a highly competitive market, you need to align your business plan with your marketing plan from the get-go.
Customers today are influenced by several elements beginning right from the identification of the brand’s logo to how and where they encountered the promotional messages. In addition to running your small or medium enterprise, marketing your products and services has now become a full fledged activity that is crucial to the promotion of a business. The promotional messages have to be crafted especially keeping this current competitive environment in mind and a sound knowledge of the potential customers’ preferences. One must know one’s target market inside out to influence it the way one desires.
Before starting a business, you must surely have researched your target customer’s profile, needs and requirements. Your product and services may be the best on offer in business, but without sound marketing plans executed professionally, you are unable to inform and convince the customers of your superiority over other brands. Marketing the business involves convincing these customers to use your particular products because of their suitability over the competitors.
As a marketing firm with professional experience spanning so many years, we can tell you that it takes a high level of expertise and a special nose for market trends to win over the highly informed customers of today.
What You Need
Your needs for marketing are basically as follows:
1) Detailed identification of the target market and the best way to approach different segments. For example, a product or service aimed at college students shall be best served by a marketing campaign targeting seminars and webinars at educational institutes, cell phone messages, educational websites, book fairs, promotional events at libraries and colleges etc.
2) Formulation of custom made messages for the identified methods of delivery. The messages have to be tailored to catch the eye of the customers and must be positioned suitably to reach the potential clients. The messages in both a comprehensive or basic marketing campaign typically include product packaging, slogans, sales presentations, promotional text for flyers, brochures and point of sale material, website content, copy for print, electronic media and web advertisements, press releases and articles.
3) The production and execution of different forms of marketing messages involves extensive working with text, ideas, materials and vendors, making it a time consuming and focused activity on its own. Producing paper or plastic print media messages in the form of advertisements, brochures, flyers, billboards, product packaging, electronic media advertisements, web development, search engine optimization, are just a few examples of production and execution of the elements of a marketing plan.
