A Sample Mosquito Repellent Marketing Plan Template

  • Our Present Business Situation

Our mosquito repellent production business has been legally registered and we have acquired the required business license and all the necessary permits (Chemical Handler’s Certificate and Professional Certificate of Competency in Chemical Engineering and Plant Design) to run this type of business in the United States of America.

Presently we have acquired a facility that has the capacity to accommodate our production unit, warehouse and administrative unit. It also has enough parking space to accommodate 25 trucks per time.

All the employees that are needed to kick start the business have been duly employed and trained to effectively handle their roles and help build the company. We have been able to secure all the needed equipment (chemical mixer, vessels, tanks, and conveyor belt system et al) and accessories for a standard insecticide production plant.

We have been able to develop a robust distribution network that is far – reaching and will be activated as soon as we roll out our first set of mosquito repellents.

  • Our Market Goals

Our marketing goal as a mosquito repellent production company as clearly stated in our business plan is to build a standard mosquito repellent production company that in our own capacity will favorably compete with leaders in the industry.

We want to build a mosquito repellent business whose brands will someday become a household name not only in the United States of America but also in South America, Caribbean and Africa. We want to become the number one choice for mosquito repellents in the United States of America. In view of that, we want to achieve the following market goals:

  • Sell a minimum of 5000 Mosquito Repellent Per Day
  • Make a monthly sale of our mosquito repellent to about $20,000 and about $240,000 for the first year and double the amount for the second year and the possibility to keep doubling our annual sale going forward.
  • Increase the number of our wholesalers and distributors by 5 percent quarterly
  • Generate 50 percent of sales from exporting our mosquito repellents to Africa (20 percent), Caribbean (20 percent) and South America (20 percent)

What we aim to achieve from our market efforts are as follows:

  • To be able to compete favorably with the leading mosquito repellent/insecticide brands such as Bayer AG, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Monsanto, and Syngenta in the whole of the United States of America
  • Build a self – sustaining business model that will run on auto – pilot and of course contribute towards the reduction of mosquitoes, mosquito related sicknesses and the growth of the economy of the United States of America.

Our Marketing Budget

The fact that our goal is to establish a mosquito repellent brand that will compete favorably with leading brands like Bayer AG, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Monsanto, and Syngenta et al, means that we should be willing to spend more on marketing, hence we have set aside a budget of 10,000 US dollars annually for marketing.

Going forward, we will budget between 5 percent and 10 percent of our annual income towards marketing and promoting our products. Please note that we are likely going to increase this budget when the need arises especially if we have to explore a more expensive but efficient marketing model.
