Outline: digital branding plan

Select an industry (i.e. fashion retailer, travel & hospitality, automotive, health and wellness,
etc…) to develop a comprehensive digital branding plan for a fictitious business you will
need to create. It may be a product or service, business to consumer or business to
business. Ideally, the company should have e-commerce as its primary source of revenue,
but it may also have a retail location too.

One of your best resources you can use is what would be a real (current business)
competitor of your new fictitious business. For example, if I chose the fashion industry and
created an athletic apparel brand, I could use Lululemon or RYU as my competitor
research and digital branding benchmark.

The goal of this project is for you to go through the process of creating a digital branding
marketing plan;

I want you to choose a company and do the same example at the end


Q) What is your choice of Industry and fictitious company to do your project on?

I thought I would offer you a couple of ideas to get you started on your project.

Start by brainstorming a few things about your ‘brand’ and ‘business.

See below for an example I put together. Ask yourself the same questions and try and write out the answers in a clear and concise way.

Once you have completed that, start by writing out your company introduction, target audience, brand positioning statement, and value proposition statement.

This will help you chip away at your project yet provide the foundation for the rest of it while we start to dive into the digital toolkit.
