Identify the correct target market 2.1. The current target market is simply too young to fully grasp the meaning of the comic. Stupid boy is a philosophical lesson to teach which is good however a 4 year old will simply not have interest in getting such a book. 2.2. 4 – 8 year olds are also more engaged if the content has good visuals, bright colours and easy messages thus the new target group should be from 7 – 12 year olds. 2.3. Through direct marketing get to the group by cold selling to preschools, kindergartens, primary schools, local churches, monastery’s, teachers forums and offer incentives listed below. Be aggressive to drive sales. 2. Get creative with your merchandising even when using different locations to sell your book. 3.4. Make banners of characters using your current workforce, with the character and the company’s name/logo and get an advantageous spot in the other retailers to attract attraction to your book e.g. the centre spot by the entrance with higher customer traffic. 3.5. Seal and cover your book so that customers are not able to read the comic book. 3.6.

...Executive Summary This report was composed to examine the demise of the sense of community in the City of Memphis. The communities in the City of Memphis are in distress due to the breakdown of family values, which are derived from the matriarchs. Currently, there is a need for women of all ages to get assistance with handling issues that sometimes affect the general overall health – mentally, physically and emotionally. Sometimes circumstances and forces beyond one’s control may put a female in a position of desperation and give her a feeling of solitude. Through “Reach One, Teach One, Girls United Across the World” outreach program, the goal is to provide a place where girls and women of all ages can and will join together to share their lives (both the successes and failures) with one another as a chain linked support system. The dynamics of this program will help with the difficulties faced and will assist each one of them with overcoming overwhelming and dismal obstacles, through a stringent support system. The objectives of this program will be to deliver direction and provide quality educational and training programs which will effectively meet the challenging needs of the participants within the program. These objectives will then, in turn, provide participants with the opportunity to make themselves more confident and effectively armed with tools that will help them become better citizens. The cost of implementing the programming will be dependent upon......

Marketing Plan 2nd Draft

...Group C 2012/3/28 Marketing Plan 2nd draft 3.0 Marketing Strategy: Part of our marketing strategy will be based on both location and special design. Our company factory and all the stores that belong to our company are located in the east part of China that is the most developed area in China. The economy there is much better than other places in China. So the consumer ability has more power than other areas. But also the location will cost a premium and will not be directly linked to the marketing budget as rent has been categorized under general overhead. Our company has special policy for our own- design T-shirt and other clothes that may popular for young people, especially the students and the people who are just out of the school and get the job in a short period. And the detail of the special policy of the design we will discuss in the 3.4 section. Another form of marketing to be described in detail will be advertising. The strategy of the marketing campaign is to increase the target customer's awareness of our company. We would like to choose the internet as our main advertisement strategy for our products. The main reason why we choose this one may have two. First, our target marketing is focus on the young people, especially the 20-25 students in school. They use the internet very often and most of the information they saw is on the internet. The speed of propagation is really fast and effective enough to improve the reputation of the products. Second reason......
