Marketing Mix
Marketing Mix
From this data we can infer that:
Fourskin products are in-sync with the customers shopping budget
Fourskin is able to price its item with this data as a gauge
Online Shopping Research
Printed Tees Survey
From this survey we have found out that the latest T-shirt trends are all of the above and Fourskin is not keeping up with the T-shirt Trends.
Went out to research on Competitors Prices
Competitive Pricing
The research was done because Fourskin does not have an online store and there is a huge demand for it, local & overseas customers have been expressing interest in Fourskin Products.

Many of its competitors are using online store as alternative way of generating profit.

• 65% more traffic on online retail sites China’s one-day shopping spree sets world record in online sales

Improved OC Layout
Product Catalog
1st Try
2nd Try
End Product
Product Catalog
400 drink coupons was given out and only 35 people returned. Out of the 35, only 1 made a purchase with the coupon.
This was done to test out the response of the customer before embarking on our plan to do a giveaway. The response for the drinks coupon was negative therefore we decided to abort the giveaway plan.
Distribution of Drinks Coupon
Likes, follows, or being added to circles are passive expressions of a low-level of interest that businesses pursue simply because they are numbers that can be measured, pure and simple.
It is still a opportunity for companies to connect with customer in a two way relationship
Re-arranging products
Suggestion for improvement
Drink coupon was given out in shopping malls with Fourskin stores
Bugis Junction
Marina Square
Orchard Central
Proper Signage to display "Sale" Poster
Potential collaborations with magazines and website
Search for potential franchise owners
Better control of stocks & inventory
Proper Staff training
Quality Control of products
Customer behavior in TP
Tend to browse through the products & return with a group of friends
Spend time deliberating on the product, resulting in them not purchasing
Crowds during lunch time & after classes
Staff members tend to purchase products of a higher cost
Students tend to purchase products based on prices instead of branding
Came up with Product Description
Zalora Collaboration
Help the management to develop a poster for Zalora and Fourskin collaboration.

The product catalog will be used for the upcoming online store. This would ease Fourskin’s troubles of creating an online store due to the availability of data through our compiled product catalog.
Impact of Modules on Project
Impact of Results:
Manage to get TP student to be hype about the bag exchange
Manage to have student asking for bag exchange programme even after the event itself.
512 followers on Instagram , 6964 likes on Facebook
Restriction on posting updates on Facebook account
Shortage of time due to amount of time spent in outlets
Lack of manpower for development of online store
Lack of capital for potential marketing schemes
Lack of proper guidance from supervisors
We felt that we have met most of our objectives and have done well in helping Fourskin to keep up with its competitors especially in the areas such as competitive price change, setting up of social media accounts and promotional campaign. Although the competitors are much ahead in the industry we believe that we have helped Fourskin to take the very first step to creating new ideas and opportunity.
