Business Short Essay

How should I start of a one page written assignment on the marketing failure of a company? What should the first paragraph include?

  • Business Short Essay -

    Before you worry about the first paragraph, have you outlined or mapped out what the other paragraphs will include? It's pretty darned hard to introduce something you haven't written yet!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    DON'T start any paper's first draft by writing the introduction! How can you introduce a paper that you haven't written yet?

    Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or whatever:

    Prewriting: Brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    Writing: Write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write the introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: Revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?
