Middle

Dominos is a market orientated business because it adapts its products in each country, to what is wanted by the consumers. For example in China, Dominos sell a sweet and sour sauce with their pizzas. And in America they sell a Bacon Cheeseburger pizza. * By focusing on the needs and wants of the customer, Dominos are much more likely to produce products that customers actually want and therefore buy. This will give Dominos a competitive advantage over rival businesses, who may not be so focused on the customer. Also, if the customer is kept satisfied then brand loyalty may be created, which can lead to repeat purchase.

Conclusion

E.g. in 2010, Domino’s spent £40 million on marketing. This means that more money can be spent on promoting the product, finding new ways to attract customers such as the creation of the Domino’s iPhone app in which orders can be placed. This £40 million also meant that Domino’s were able to afford high profile communications such as the sponsorship of Britain’s Got Talent, The Simpsons and The X Factor. These meant that more people were attracted to the product itself; it promoted the idea of an affordable luxury whilst watching tv with the family. This stimulated sales. * Domino’s are known for their Two for Tuesday promotion deal; this has been very effective and has turned Tuesday from being the quietest day of the week, to the busiest, even over Saturday. Promotional methods as such attract the target markets attention and help keep customers engaged with the brand.
