2. Human Resources, volunteer base decreasing - Increasing competition in the North for volunteers, changing demographics resulting in people needing to work longer to support pensions 3. Web technology - Can not make donations online. Hindering fund raising possibilities Figure 20 - Organisational Specific Problem No. Marketing Specific Problem 1. Awareness - The organisation is at present focusing on building awareness of the hospice cause rather than promoting the benefits and services of the hospice. 2. Brand - SAH as a brand is not having its values, beliefs an attitudes communicated through the current marketing techniques. 3. Integrated marketing - Currently confusing messages being communicated through contrasting mediums. Figure 21 - Marketing Specific Problem The proposed strategy will initially target the marketing specific problems concentrating on building awareness and establishing the brand attributes through a revised integrated marketing campaign. This will act as a platform from which the proposed plan will target volunteers and then corporate donators into the long term. 8.0 Set marketing Goals and Objectives Objectives are fundamental to the proposed marketing plan as they are the only mechanism by which its success can be measured (Sargeant, 2005: 97). The objectives will guide the strategy and will impact the formulation of the marketing mix for SAH. The objectives will allow St Ann's to allocate resources. The objectives will link into the current mission statement (See 5.1) and organisation objectives (See 5.2). They will state the broad direction with which this proposed strategy wishes to take SAH. 8.1 Short Term Objective (0-12 Months) Increase awareness of the hospice and its activities by 25% amongst 45 - 75 year olds within the North West region within a 12 month period. 8.2 Medium Term Objective (12-18 Months) Increase volunteer base by 40 new volunteers, representing a 10% increase within an 18 month period. 8.3 Long Term Objective (18 Months -) Increase net donations from corporate support by �320,000, representing a 50% increase on the 2004 figure, over a 3 year period. ...read more.

Conclusion

It is important for SAH not to loose focus of the current strengths of the organisation. The key activities that have made SAH successful must be incorporated into this plan. 14.0 Appendices Appendix 1 Telephone interview Questions Organisation Who are they? What do they do? You Who are you? What do you do? How would you describe the current situation of the Hospice industry? Competition? How would you describe the current situation of the organisation? Publics? How is the organisation structured? What are the major strengths of SAH? What are the major weaknesses of SAH? Can you tell me a little bit about the current marketing activities? Advertising? Promotion? PR? DM? How successful is your current marketing? How do you measure marketing success? How would you improve them? Can you tell me about your resources - Financial and Human? Allocation vs. Attraction? Appendix 2 Survey Questions To highlights some company background information and allow me to put together a situational analysis for the organisation. As discussed please I have put together a small survey to fill in some of the gaps that were left following the telephone interview. So as to allow for qualitative information I have left the questions open. I would really appreciate it if you could give as much detail as possible on the company, this will enable me to analyse the company from an INTERNAL perspective Company Objectives/Goals Resources and Capabilities - Budgets - Volunteers Marketing Objectives Current Marketing Strategies Are these affective - how do you measure this? Future Marketing strategies Company culture/ethos What are the key strengths of your organisation? What are its major weaknesses/challenges? I understand how busy you must be and I understand that this is a great ask, any help you can give would be very much appreciated. I also understand the ethical issues involved with such a project, so all work can be checked by yourself and you are more then welcome to see a finished copy of the report and you may even take advantage of some of the ideas 15. ...read more.
