Sample Structure for Assignment #1 Report
Here I will propose a brief outline for you to consider when building your report for assignment number one. Feel free to use these headings but if you feel that they are restrictive, please understand I am looking for a well communicated report and ultimately the structure is up to you. Note: please always include a title page and reference page.
Suggested report structure (4 pages double spaced):
Introduction (0.5 page)
Please provide an introduction briefly introducing yourself and your business idea.
Concept (1 page)
Please provide an in depth overview of what your business concept is, its theme, why you chose to develop this idea and provide several arguments justifying why you think it would be successful. This is where a good chunk of your research comes into play. Please remember, research helps you justify your arguments and use in text citations.
Target Demographic (1 page)
Please provide an overview of who your target customer is, why you chose this group of consumer and why they would be appropriate for your business idea. Again, you need to provide arguments and justifications as to why this consumer group would love to engage with your business (more research).
