I need assistance writing a marketing plan in APA format. It needs to be 15 pages long and is due on 21 May 2021. I had to submit a proposal for it which I will upload as it will need to be followed for the final paper. Ordinarily, I would do it myself but we are short staffed at work and I worry that I won’t have enough time to get it done.

Marketing Plan: Proposal
Marketing is an essential part of any business. Whether the purpose of the business is to
introduce something new to the market, or simply to improve upon the existing enterprises the
ability to market is crucial to success. Because of this, great care should be taken when
developing the plan to ensure that all marks are being hit and, to an extent, mitigate the risks
Knowing “what” is the initial step in the process. In this step the idea of what the business will

The proposal will be for the creation of a new firearms company that will operate to plug some
of the gaps as well as serve a niche that is being overlooked.
As previously stated, the market is experiencing unprecedented sales. Additionally, there are
segments of the market that are underserved or simply not served at all. Exploring these
segments of the market will allow for growth as well as a pre-installed user base.
How this business will be structured and grow will borrow from the existing companies.
Learning from peers as it were. One such inspiration is the company Daniel Defense. The
founder of Daniel Defense, Marty Daniel, won a defense contract with the Naval Surface
Warfare Center to produce the RIS II rail for M4 rifles (RIS II Archives – Soldier Systems Daily,
2009). While not a firearm, the contract for the rail system did propel Daniel Defense into the
spotlight and, ultimately, led to them being able to manufacture firearms themselves.
Additionally, the company will explore areas of the industry that are not being served by the
existing manufacturers and work to cater to these markets. This, however, will not be to the
exclusion of the more mainstream products.
