How to make the mobile disco more profitable

Extracts from this document...


How to make the mobile disco more profitable Reduce Costs In the Manic Mixers business, there are two costs involved. One is the variable cost and the other is the fixed cost. If the owners were to reduce the cost they would attract much more customers and benefit with more revenue. At the moment the Manic Mixers have around three bookings be month. Each booking is charged at �85. If this price was lowered this would be another attracting factor. Alternatively if they raised the price by around �5 they would still achieve the same goal.

After the Manic Mixers have done their research into their potential customers, the change in making the mobile disco more profitable could look a bit like this. Revenue = price per item x no. of items sold = � 75 x 5 = � 375 Total costs = fixed costs + variable costs = �100 + � 80 + (no. of items x variable cost per item) = � 180 + 3 x � 20 = � 240 Profit = revenue - total costs = � 375 - � 240 = � 135 per month From these projected results, research is an important factor when thinking about changing price.
