Extracts from this document...


INTRODUCTION In this project I am going to produce a marketing campaign for a small retail business. The business, which I am going to "make", will have competitors in the local area. Before I am going to open my business, I will have to decide on a few main things. E.g. which products I am going to sell, the prices at which the products are going to be sold, where my business is going to be located and how I am going to promote my shop and the products. For my marketing Campaign Plan, I am going to develop a small supermarket, which will be called Shoprite. I want to keep the supermarket as small as possible and the products at the best standard. The supermarket will sell essential household products and I also Would like to stock a selection of sweets/crisps newspapers and magazines, ice creams, fruit and vegetables, cards, yoghurt, cigarettes etc. Shoprite will not be located in central Seaford but on the outskirts of town, mainly in residential areas. The reason for this is that it will save people from driving into town for their necessities. Shoprite's competitors will be: 1. Costcutters 2. CO-OP 3. Scoop 'n weigh 4. Green Grocers Before I decide on the products, which my supermarket will be selling etc. I am first going to draw up a research plan as; it is going to help me with the information that I will need. The data that I will collect, I am going to gather by handing out questionnaires to people aged 10 years and older. ...read more.


Marketing Objectives: Before embarking on any marketing activity, the marketing department must decide on their aims and objectives. An objective is how an aim could be achieved. Marketing Mix: The Marketing Mix is the term used to describe the various Marketing activities of a firm. These are referred to as the 4 P's. The 4 P's stand for: * Product - goods made or services provided by businesses. * Price - A price where the demand for a product equals its supply. * Promotion - communication between business and customer, making the customer aware that the product is for sale, telling or explaining to them what the product is. * Place - Where a business is situated. e.g. Safeway is situated in the residential area. There are four marketing Objectives that I am going to use for my marketing campaign. * Advertising: To create goodwill in a competitive and changing environment. * Sales Promotion: To maintain/improve levels of sales in a short term. * Promotion: To minimise the bad effects that a change might have on the market. * Market Research: To change existing or develop new products/services to meet customers needs. PRODUCTS I am going to outline the products/services that my business will be offering and then explain how I will differentiate my products/services from my competitors. Shoprite is not going to be anything grand and smart, it is just going to be a plan and simple supermarket, as it isn't going to have a huge selection of different brands (an named product which customers see as being different from other products) ...read more.
