Introduction

Marketing Unit E1. Throughout this unit I am going to try to develop my own marketing strategy and techniques for the company Tommy Hilfiger. The store that I will be assessing is the Bluewater store. I will attempt to identify the methods and strategies that are used by the company when promoting and trying to increase the sales of the Tommy Denim range of jeans and clothing, I shall then attempt to develop my own, better strategies. Marketing is essential to the success of any business. Its primary aim is to enable businesses to meet the needs of their customers and potential customers, whether for profit or not but in the long term hopefully increasing sales. Tommy's target market is extremely varied but the designs of the clothing tend to focus more on the needs and tastes of the older, more classic generation. ...read more.

My strategy will involve me looking at the following principles: * Understanding of customer needs by composing a questionnaire and getting customers within the store to complete it. * To understand and keep ahead of competition by assessing the products and services the competitors offer. * To communicate effectively with it's customers to satisfy customer expectations, general customer service. * To co-ordinate its functions to achieve marketing aims. * To be fully aware of the constraints on marketing activities. By putting together sources of primary and secondary data and conducting interviews with the management team within the store, I shall put together a strategy that is based on a combination of solutions from the marketing mix.
