Purpose of Assignment
Marketing plans help coordinate an organization’s departments and activities toward a mutual benefit between the organization and the consumer. Well thought out marketing plans contain both internal and external research aimed at understanding who the customer is, what they want, and any barriers the company may encounter in meeting customer demands. This research and information allows the company to create strong strategies and realistic goals.

COMPANY NAME: Eccentric Technology
PRODUCT:. Pantech, a panic button
Â·Eccentric Technology is a start-up business in the security/technology industry, and our first product is the Pantech, a panic button with a built in camera that starts recording as soon as the button is pressed. it also sets off a very loud alarm that will alert people that you are in danger and need help. also when pushed it will send a short recording and message to the person of choice. I think it helps to mention that you can get the button in more than just jewelry (some men and women don’t wear jewelry) and instead can order it as just a clip that can be attached to your clothing, bags, belts and wrist bands.
Â·there are similar products but the difference between our product and theirs is that our product has tjat loud siren sound and ours can record video when the panic button is pressed
