SWOT Analysis

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

SWOT Analysis SWOT analysis is a tool for auditing an organisation and its environment. It is the first stage of planning and helps marketers to focus on key issues. Once key issues have been identified, they feed into marketing objectives. It can be used in conjunction with other tools for audit and analysis, such as PEST analysis. It is a very popular tool with marketing students because it is quick and easy to learn, * Strengths Probably the biggest strength that Lanc�me possesses is its reputation. The company has been in business for 70 years and therefore have built a great reputation for excellent service, quality and fashionable products. Lanc�me is now got the 7th biggest market share in the total UK retail make-up market.

These factors have assisted them to maintain their high market share in the premium-cosmetic market. * Weaknesses One of the Weaknesses is that Lanc�me is not Number one in the Premium market.

As the new product is so similar to Juicy Tubes the consumers might attracted to Estee Lauder's new lip pop gloss. Therefore Lanc�me have to keep up with the latest makeup and try to make a new product which is better than other brand's. Another threat is that if the government decided to make a law which is completely against animal testing. Then when Lanc�me want to introduce a new product, Lanc�me would not able to use it on animal to test whatever it's a bad effect or not.
