Price- (objective one)
At Vodafone they have a wide range of prices as they deal with a wide range of customers, all their customers have different needs this may be that some want to take out just a single contract whereas some of the customers have big businesses where they need lots of phones. They base the price around new customers to if the new customers want a plan that has unlimited text and 300 minutes then they will pay about £15 this would be obtaining new customers because if the customers comes in and says they want certain things and a certain price then Vodafone tries and works with that to make it close as possible to their request.
Price (objective two )
Vodafone keep the customer that they already have by the fact that they give discount for a few months and Vodafone let the customer know if there are other plans which they may be able to save money then it keeps the customers happy. If customers have been with Vodafone for long than about 3 years then if they take out another contract with Vodafone they will give it at a discount.
Price (objective 3)

Place (objective 2)
Vodafone keeps the customers that they already have by having stores around, so if the customer has a problem they don’t need to spend hours on the phone they could just pop into the closes town as most towns have one in. By Vodafone having so many stores it’s providing a better service which will help keep the customers loyal to Vodafone. Vodafone are market leaders because of the service they give and that there is so many places that you can get help from like online, in store and by phone.

Product (objective 2)
Vodafone need to keep the customer that they already have this means that their products needs to be top quality and needs to have some of the best phones that there is. This is because if a phone company can always offer you then best then you are going to stay with them so Vodafone always needs to be giving their customer that extra bit, to make them not want to leave.

Vodafone develop their brand through their products as by selling just one product it is branding the company. Vodafone are always putting new products out there that are all different and this means that it’s developing the brand from not just a phone company but one that sells SIMS, iPads and many more.

Vodafone uses promotion to grab new customers the promotion does this by having money off, saving money and making the product look really good. There are promotional advertising that is just for new customers this means that customers can save more money because they are new and it means that Vodafone makes more money.
