The store, which I own, sells sports clothes, sports equipment, sports accessories. The business will be in the private sector. The business will be a sole trader, which means one person will run it. The advantages of being a sole trader are the following: 1. They are very easy to set up. 2. You get to be your own boss. 3. You decide what happens to all the profits. The consumers, who are the people who will be purchasing the products, will be those who are interested in sports, like to wear sports clothes and people who play sports.

carries out market research is so that it can find out whether the type of business they are setting up can be a success or not. Some businesses do primary research. This is research that you gather up yourself. Primary research is useful for finding out new information and getting views from customers' about your products. It involves things such as questionnaires, telephones surveys, product testing and working with consumer groups. The Advantages of primary research are that it provides data that is up-to-date, relevant, and specific to your products. However there are a few disadvantages. These are that primary research is expensive to collect, it takes up a lot of time, and it needs a large sample size to be accurate. Primary research is also known as field research and original research. The other type of research is secondary research. This is when you look at other people's research. This is useful for looking at the whole market, and analysing past trends to predict the future. It involves looking at things like market research reports, government publications, and newspaper and magazine articles. The advantages of secondary research are that it is cheaper than primary research, the data is easily found and the data is instantly available. However, the disadvantages are that the information is not always relevant to your needs, it is not specifically about your products, and it is often out of date. There are two types of data that you can find. These are quantitative and qualitative. ...read more.

I will send out most of the flyers by post around Stratford, Forest Gate, East Ham, Canning Town, Beckton, and Plaistow. I will also give out flyers while standing outside Stratford Shopping centre. 4 Weeks before the Opening day I will again distribute flyers by post around Stratford, Forest Gate, East Ham, Canning Town, Plaistow, and Beckton. I will add a special offer onto the flyer so I could attract more customers. Also I will ask a few local shops in forest gate if I can put a large poster on the shop window so when people go past they can see the poster and hopefully they will take some of the information. 3 Weeks before the opening day I will put posters on my shop about its special offers and I will leave it there until the shop opens. Also, on the poster I will put all the special offers that I will have on the first day. 2 Weeks before the opening day ?? ?? ?? ?? Zaid Patel 11WALL Business Studies Mr Young ...read more.
