Introduction

MARKETING ASSIGNMENT BASED AROUND THE ESTATE AGENCY BUSINESS. VS BUSINESS, YEAR 1. BY: LYDIA MITCHELL TOPIC 1- PLAN PLAN As part of my Marketing unit I have been asked to produce a detailed marketing strategy for a new business venture, an estate agent in Ealing, operating throughout the whole borough.

They also said that in order to advertise for people to sell their houses they used leaflet drops throughout the whole borough. Through secondary research I found out some government statistics. These allowed me to see the household numbers and the projection up until 2021. This showed me that the houses that I would need to sell would be 3 bedroom houses as most families have around 3 people in them. TOPIC 3- EXTERNAL INFLUENCES EXTERNAL INFLUENCES The internal and external influences that may affect the business can be analysed using a SWOT analysis and a PEST analysis.

PHYSICAL EVIDENCE Physical evidence is the evidence that is collected that can be used as facts. For example I designed a questionnaire to let me know the wants and needs of customers, by doing this I had physical evidence to show that I knew what t???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????@@??????????+??????A?T??????+????????????????x??B?????????????R???????1????????????????????1??mployee discretion.
