Starting a music shop called Musalicious.

Extracts from this document...


Action Plan In this Course work I will be starting a music shop called Musalicious. I will get my information to start my shop from Primary and Secondary research. I will do this because I would get a better idea of the products I will sell, the gap in the market and how much I would sell them for. I need to conduct a questionnaire to find out what sort of music I should sell and what age group I should advertises to. So that when I do advertise it would appeal to the age group that I chose. I am doing questionnaire because it easier to record and make graphs and charts then just asking people random questions. If i do not find the information I need then I will then interview or rewrite the questionnaire so that includes more questions that will help me. Definition of marketing. 'The total of activities involved in the transfer of goods from the producer or seller to the consumer or buyer, including advertising, shipping, storing, and selling.' (http://dictionary.reference.com/) Target market. Target market is the market segment to which a particular product is marketed.

I could have also asked people to sample my product, but that would not have helped because I do not have a product for people to sample. Charts & Graphs This Pie Chart shows that 50% were male and 50 % were Female. This is good because its gives me a result fairly between males and females. This graph shows the age of each person that took my questionnaire. There are more 10 to 16 year olds because I wanted to focus on teenagers but there are also some older people so I could see there opinion. This graph shows that a mixture of all types of music is most popular so I shall stock a mixture of different types of music so I can meet customer's wants. This is for Product out of the 4 P's. I found out that people would be willing to pay �1.10 - �2 on a CD with 2 - 3 songs on so I shall price my CDs roughly around that price. this is for Price out the for P's. This Graph shows that a high percentage read the national news papers so when I advertise I should place an advert in a national newspaper. This is for Promotion out of the 4 P's This shows that I should have a website and a small store then I should have more customers and I will save money by having a website then a bigger store. ...read more.
