This is why I?ve set up a plan to know exactly what students are looking for from the tuck shop. Market Strategies Market strategies assist a business in achieving their marketing plans and targets. Marketing strategies that I will use to make this tuck shop successful will be the four (4) P?s which includes: 1. Price 2. Product 3. Promotion 4. Place The 4P?s tells a business that they must sell the right product at a price consumers are willing to pay, in the right place and inform consumers that it will be available through promotion. Products MENU Juices Price Hawaiian $1.00 Tampico $1.00 Snacks Honey bun $1.00 Chips $0.50 Chocolate $1.00 Candies $0.50 - $1.00 Others Sandwich $1.00 ? 1.50 Hot dogs $1.50 Fruit $1.00 Vegetarian Pattie $1.00 Soda $0.75 - $1.50 Ice-cream $1.00 The reason for making this menu is to indicate the products which the tuck shop will sell. The range of the products might not be enough, however when the business is up and running, the tuck shop can organize another market research to see what else students might wish to add to this list. It is important to know which products satisfy the most customers, if not the goods you?re providing may not sell and this can lead to a failure in the business. Therefore a census should be given out every two to three months to obtain* students to keep visiting and spending their money. ...read more.


Students would need to be served in an effective and efficient manner. This were the business could increase their sales, make profits and be successful. Conclusion This coursework is based on the knowledge that I have learnt from the Business Studies lessons also combined with research and investigations. I feel that opening the tuck shop is a very good idea. I believe that students of C.R. Walker High School will be supportive of the tuck shop and will purchase goods from the tuck shop; I know this because of the findings of my research. Arguments that was put against the tuck shop: People said: 1. Because the premises are very limited, there?s not enough space. 2. It would be a waste of labor and Space 3. They just need to enhance their products and drop prices Arguments that was put for the tuck shop: 1. The current tuck shop is to crowded 2. They need to sell a variety of more goods 3. The lines are too long and it turns away customers 4. For better and faster service I agree with the arguments for the tuck shop. I?ve also learnt how to choose the suitable media methods to make the advertisements. This coursework does not just help me to go through points I have learnt, but also help me to prepare for examinations. Doing this coursework I to have learnt how to set up my own business, what information I have to master and analyze and the methods that is needed to achieve success for this business. ...read more.
