Extracts from this document...


Sales Promotion and Advertising Plan for the Web site www.sniegaklubs.lv prepared by: Girts Gansons Janis Briedis Jurgis Ozolinsh Mareks Veinbergs Riga 2001 Executive Summary Sniegaklubs (Snow Club) is a group of energetic and open-minded people, which has joined in this public organization with the mission to promote active and healthy lifestyle, with emphasis on snowboarding. Sniegaklubs was founded in December 1999 and launched its Web site in January 2000. In the season of 2000/2001 Sniegaklubs have grown to very dynamic, active, and interactive Web site with comparatively high traffic and lot of useful and funny information about snowboarding, hills in Latvia, and mountains abroad. In the future Sniegaklubs wants to grow as a full service Web site for the Baltic snowboarding society with three main sections: * Information/experience/interactivity/fun * Business/service/shopping * Snowboarding around the world/Tours and events abroad Sniegaklubs mission is to be on the Web to help, assist, and entertain anybody who is interested in active lifestyle and especially in snowboarding. We are eager to provide our dear members, visitors, and customers with as much interactive snowboarding-related information as they are willing to acquire. Besides the information Sniegaklubs is willing to offer people full service, assistance, and help in snowboard equipment rental and/or purchasing process, snowboarding events attendance, and snowboarding tours anywhere in the world. The main and basically only competitor of Sniegaklubs in Latvia is www.VertikaleX.lv, which is functioning similarly providing different information about snow events and possibilities; however their emphasis is more to alpine side, which is alpine skiing, alpine snowboarding, climbing etc. The target market of www.sniegaklubs.lv is anybody in age from 8 to 50, and who is able to and interested in snowboarding. Our primary target market is people 16-26 both men and women, but with bigger emphasis on men, they or their families income is medium to high and they like active lifestyle. The secondary target market would be "Generation Y", which is 11-16 year old teenagers that want to be cool among their peers, and that ...read more.


High publicity throughout the year has made www.sniegalubs.lv popular in Latvia, and we are planning to use this practice in Estonia and Lithuania as well. Besides that the very high percentage of new hosts come to the Web page due to very good word-of-mouth distribution about Sniegaklubs. This again reinforces the fact that we have to be stylish, attractive, customer friendly, and special, so our target audience just talks about us quite a lot in their daily chatting. 2.7.2. Communication Objectives * To create the awareness of Sniegaklubs Web site to 70% of Internet users in Latvia and 40% in Estonia and Lithuania. * To create the awareness of Sniegaklubs Web site to 95% of current snowboarders in Latvia and 75% in Estonia and Lithuania. * To create the awareness of Sniegaklubs Web site to 50% of our target market in Latvia and 30% in Estonia and Lithuania. * Strengthen Sniegaklubs brand in Latvia and establish Lumeklubi and Sniegoklubas brands in Lithuania and Estonia. There has not been done marketing research at this point, and we understand that it would be more than necessary, unfortunately there are just not enough human and financial resources to do it now; however we assume that current awareness is at the level of about 40% of Latvian Internet users, which basically means that it can be set as a target for the first year operation in Estonia and Lithuania. For the second year of operation in Latvia we set 70% level of awareness. The split of three different categories in communication objectives is done because there are still quite many people without the access to Internet, but with suitable lifestyle to Sniegaklubs. There is also established society of snowboarders already, which is most easily to target, but unfortunately not that big yet. That is why very high (respectively 95% and 75%) percentage of awareness is planned among those people. ...read more.
