Create a 10- to 20-slide (not counting the cover slide and reference slide) Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation  with speaker’s notes on the Five-Step Marketing Research Approach  detailing how you will use each step to solve the membership issue the  local nonprofit charity is facing.

Define the two types of research data this process gathers and their  pros and cons. Share examples of each type that would be useful in  solving the scenario.
