Recommended Digital Strategy: Detail your recommended marketing campaign, including digital marketing and media strategy. Length: 250 – 300 words
Campaign Message: Describe and explain your digital campaign message. Length: 200 -250 words
Editorial Calendar and Budget: Detail your recommended digital marketing activities by month, including creative, agency, and digital media with budget allocations. Include a sample of a one-month editorial calendar for next year. Length: 250 – 300 words.

Using Research and Sources to Support Your Recommendations
The digital marketing plan and presentation must represent original work developed by you for this course. Your analysis and recommendations must be supported by research about the market and consumers for natural cleaning products, trends, competition and digital marketing. Sources of primary and secondary information referenced must receive appropriate credit, using APA format.

Determining Research Information Quality
One way to establish the credibility of your recommendations is to only use the highest quality sources of market research and digital marketing information. Consider the following factors when evaluating source quality and only rely on the best sources you can find.
Primary Sources: The best authority on digital marketing and advertising tools and processes are the companies who offer the services. For example, if you want to know about Google AdWords, do not refer to an article someone wrote about using Google AdWords, go directly to the Google AdWords site.
Authoritative: Is the author an authority and does the author have the credentials (educational background, past writing, experience, proven skills) in digital marketing?
Accurate: Is the source objective and impartial? Is the information included in the article from creditable sources and referenced or linked to source information?
Timely: Digital Marketing is a highly-dynamic field. It is essential to only use recent and current information. Something written in 2015 could be out-of-date and no longer accurate.
