Mitsui Travel is an independent and privately owned full service travel agency, which specialized in assisting customers who are planning to travel to Japan (Mitsui Travel 2014). Located in Sydney since 1977; Mitsui offers variety of Japan-related pre-planned tour packages, ski packages, rail pass, and accommodation. However, the major aspect of Mitsui’s service lies on its flexibility and expertise in terms of building a personalized itinerary for individual and family who plan to travel to Japan (Mitsui Travel 2014).
The travel agency industry- where Mitsui operates in- has been dramatically changed due to the significant rise of online tourism (Dixit et al. 2006). The advancement of Internet has resulted in a rapid rise of direct bookings and reservations aided by the invention of specialist software and GDS sites (Bergin-Seers et al. 2006). Consequently, this phenomenon gave rise to the significance of electronic-marketing (E-marketing) for travel agencies around the world. With a clear E-Marketing plan, any travel agent- including Mitsui- can better integrates Internet into their traditional business method. Hence, the purpose of this report is to establish an E-Marketing plan for Mitsui which focused on Japan as the primary travel destinations.

Marketing Plan: E-Business Qrt2 Task

...Marketing Plan, E- Business A1: I have chosen for my business a local frozen yogurt shop, Let’s Top It. This store is located in a geographically desirable area (on a main road in a residential area near several K-12 schools, and a community college) with a potential large and varied customer base. The store provides a decent variety of frozen yogurt flavor and topping offerings in a clean and friendly environment. The cost of the product is comparable to that of similar businesses’ costs and the way the store operates is similar. The main issue with this company is that they have almost no online presence. There is no webpage, no social media pages, they have a fairly poor search engine presence, and do not appear to be linked with any online advertising presences such as urbanspoon.com or yelp.com. This store also offers no customer loyalty programs that may encourage return visits. As this store has a lot of local competition that does provide all of the above, this business is handicapped as far as generating new business. Since this is a single, privately owned store, there is not a large budget for marketing but increasing the store’s online presence will provide a low- cost way to advertise and encourage more business and repeat business and will help this business be competitive with the other stores in the area. The target demographic is well versed in using the Internet on a daily basis not only for looking at potential sites at which to spend money......

...Why is it important for an e-business model to create value in a way that is differentiated from the way competitors’ models create value? For any type of business model, it is important to differentiate your product/service from its competition. This differentiation is critical in creating value for long term competitive advantage. Therefore, it attracts customers who see more value for what they pay. Further, differentiation that is difficult to imitate results in sustainable competitive advantage. Examples: Apple’s operating software in iPhone is the differentiating factor that results in customer loyalty and competitive advantage. What is the Balanced Scorecard and how do companies use it in e-business? Developed by Kaplan and Norton, the Balanced Scorecard aims to highlight the value-creating functions. It matches the present happenings with the future aims by explaining the vision and strategy through four components: 1- Customer Perspective 2- Internal Perspective 3- Financial Perspective 4- Learning and Growth Perspective. For each of the above perspectives, it captures the objectives, measures, targets and initiatives that help to define the overall vision and strategy of the organisation. As the balance scorecard is used by a range of businesses, similarly, it is used in the e-business as well. However, the measures, targets and initiatives that highlight the performance of the objectives tend to change from that of other businesses...

E Marketing

...e-Marketing Project : Option 2 Marketing is the life blood of any organisation. Outline and describe the process of marketing with particular reference to services marketing and outline a marketing plan for a services organisation. Introduction There are many complex definitions and ideas of what marketing actually is, but a simple and concise one is: Marketing is “the commercial processes involved in promoting and selling and distributing a product or service” (Dictionary.com). In the context of services marketing, there is no “out of the box” product, which can be just purchased by a potential customer, so the marketing process is slightly different; however, the same rules apply. In this project I am going to address a general description of the marketing process, a brief look at how some services companies do their marketing, with particular focus on the software solutions division of the global multi-national Accenture, for whom I previously worked, so I will be talking largely from personal experience when referring to them and the online auction site eBay, of which I am an extremely regular user, buying on average 2 items per week from their site. Finally, I will outline a short marketing plan for a fictional software development services company. I will conclude just how important marketing is to any services organisation.

Marketing Plan Part E

...Marketing Plan Part E MRT 100 / Journal Entry # 4 Since VIP Board Rentals are an online-based company we will be offering online services. All service packages will have to be booked online so that we have the ability to keep the overhead low by not having a store location. No sales team will be required since we will be using online advertisements via social media, TV, and special events near the snow resorts. With little to no restrictions on site locations, we will be able to travel further out to different snow resorts to serve a larger customer base. Since we are using social media to promote our service, we could use a buy-one-get-one free strategy to draw customers in to try the service. Another one could be a package deal for the length of time that the customer wants to use the service. A multi-day deal would be another strategy that I would use to get customers to keep the product longer at a reduced price. The last strategy that I would try to use would be a convenience strategy. By offering free delivery and in room fitting, this should temp the younger generation to try the service. The younger generations like the convenience of online ordering so that they can avoid the long lines and waits at stores. Our main marketing goals for promotions, offers, and giveaways would be as follows: We would use online promotions on social media to get customers to become interested within the services. Within the online websites and social media pages we could then......

Services offered include standard computer repair, upgrades, custom gaming personal computers, accessories, and much more. Tesla Tech’s Marketing niche will be fairly pinpointed, set to cater to the older generation that needs and wants to learn how to use modern day computers and do not have the means to learn.

Tesla Tech plans to offer this online service free of charge to customers that buy custom made or brand new desktop or laptop computers from our online e-commerce website. This will allow the company to generate many new customers within the age rages of 45+ who may be timid or reluctant to buy a new pc because of their perception that they do not have the necessary tools or knowledge to complete basic computer related tasks. Sales of new computer will increase since our entire strategy will thrive on the fact that consumers will know that they will be able to log-in to our video tutorial database and educate themselves on whatever subject they need help with. Our main demographic will be single or married woman age 45 and up. This demographic......

...technology devices with marketing strategies. As a result, terms such as online marketing, digital marketing, Internet marketing, electronic marketing, and even hypermedia marketing had been used for elaborating the new concept of marketing. However, online marketing, Internet marketing and E-marketing will be used frequently interchangeable and can often be considered synonymous (Gilmore et al., 2007). Although there is still no fixed nomenclature for this modern marketing strategy (Dholakia,2005), the term “E-marketing” would be used hereafter in this article. This article attempts to focus on how E-marketing is defined in research and discuss its adoptions and advantages for enterprises. It is imperative to distinguish between two commonly used and easily confused terms (E-business and E-commerce) before discussing E-marketing. According to Krishnamurthy (2006), E-business is an overarching term that describes how businesses run on the Internet or Web, and utilize Internet technologies to improve the productivity or organizational performance. On the other hand, E-commerce focuses entirely on the Internet or web to facilitate commercial transactions and even includes almost any transactional event in nature in real world, such as banking, stocks and bonds trading, auctions, retail shopping and so on. In addition, there are three popular types of E-commerce: business to business, business to customer, and customer to customer. Similarly, in terms of E-marketing, one......
