Emos - Marketing Principles 200083
Transcript of Emos - Marketing Principles 200083
With approximately 94% of teenagers having either Facebook or Twitter, we feel it would be highly inappropriate not to take full advantage of this and advertise on social networks.
Radio, television and the internet would also be appropriate sources to advertise as all teens either use a computer, drive a car, watch tv or use their mobile phones.
Emos - Express
Express - Our Product
Being a new business to the market, Express won't have such a large reputation and high customer loyalty compared to other companies.
Price Penetration - Advertising our product at a low price, slighty above cost price, to gain higher market share.
This would allow us to attract and appeal to more consumers as our product won't be expensive

Express' Need Satisfaction
Express satisifes needs relevant to our niche target of Emo's. These are achieved by recognition of convenience of access, quality and satisfaction of a reasonable price, acceptance and belonging, whilst remaining an outlet self-actualisation throughout expression.
- Convenience - online access globally, incredibly user friendly after research groups
- Satisfying price - due to the age and demographics of this tribe, the products offered cannot be excessively priced. The quality of product is exceptional for the low price tag.
- Belonging - offering current styles suited to this particular group in society.
- Self-actualisation - Defining the inner personality throughout our customisation and mood-technology. This satisfies the feeling of superior emotions. Allowing society to acknowledge the inner feelings.
Express is available online and in stores, allowing Emo’s, particularly our niche market of 15-18 year old target, to custom make clothing (shirts, hats and jumpers) by choosing the colour, front, material and style of shirt they would like to create. Individuals are able to place slogans or phases on their shirts, allowing unique individual expression. Moreover, mood technology means the shirts have the ability to light up via a switch allowing them to turn on and off their statement which changes colour in accordance with the mood that they are in.
Our brand is express.com, which has a double meaning. It uses "express" as individuals are able to individually express themselves which is essential to this tribe. We will “express” ship it to the customer, being advantageous over competitors.

Emos - Tribe Profile
Emos are are a particular group in the society who can be stereotyped or classified as having an emotional state of mind. Emo, short for emotional, is taking a new tole since the 20th century of expressing yourself. The stereotype extends to define an emo as anti-social as they are often bullied and they tend to not like mainstream things such as bright colours. Emos tend to like alternative or rock bands, tend to wear skinny jeans and band-T's. This is where our product concept is initiated. Emos express themselves in an different and individual way to other tribes and prefer to be unique within society.

We have a competitive edge over our direct competitors who produce similar products due to our mood-technology employed which allows us to change the colour or mood of the shirt, inspired by the mood ring. This provides the ability to go a step further in allowing our target market of the Emo tribe to express their individuality and self-importance. Moreover, the mood-changing aspect appeals to the audience as it is a new concept which is specifically modified to adapt to their desires.
