With sights on the long term aim we will implement the first stages by targeting 14-18 year olds

Children and teens are also estimated to influence between $130 billion and $500 billion in family purchases annually. Links to the PESTER Power Model which is the ability for children to influence parents’ purchasing decisions (Proctor & Richards, 2002, p. 3)

Healthy Lifestyle
"Reflects a person's choices of how he or she spends time and money"
Solomon et al. ,2002
Salad Bars
Juice Bars
Cookout Demonstrations
Nutritional Talks
Segmentation is identifying groups of consumers within a marketplace whose needs are similar (Palmer, 2006. p. 166; Marshall & Jonston, 2001, p. 160)
Influence of ‘Word of Mouth’ for Park Run will carry greater weight amongst their peers and family members (Positive)
Young people being a power consumer group
" Spero & Stone (2004)

Targeting the social benefits brings a ‘Branding Community’ which can develop into loyal customers
(Heding, Knudtzen & Bjerre, 2009. p. 184)

Rosen (1995)
The reason for this?
This model is important because it builds customer loyalty which ties in with positive branding
Park Run will lean towards existing data of the influence of PESTER Power

PEST Analysis
relate to changes in government influence and can have huge significance for Park Run

NHS and the Portsmouth City council's objective of reducing obesity
Other economic changes that affect business include changes in the interest rate, wage rates, and the rate of inflation can affect secondary spending

Emphasising that ParkRun is a Free event
Relates to pattern of behavior, tastes, and lifestyles, age structure of the population also alters over time (currently we have an aging population).
An understanding of social change gives ParkRun a better feel for the future market situation.

We have become particularly significant in the post-millennium world. This is particularly true in terms of modern communication technologies.
Vast quantities of information is shared and quickly distributed ParkRun has to maximise on its Social media presence

Objectives of marketing
Direct Marketing
supports the sales effort by using one or more of the available media to generate a quantifiable and measurable response that moves the customer closer to an initial or additional sale without the use of a face to face sale (Meisner, 2006, p.13).
Advertising is paid for, non-personal communication from an identified organisation, body or individual designed to communicate information and to influence consumer behaviour (Yeshin, 2006, p.1)
Public Relations
Using the news or business press to carry positive stories about your company or your products; cultivating a good relationship with local press representatives

Personal Selling
The presentation of a persuasive message by a seller to a potential customer or group of customers, generally in a face-to-face meeting. Personal selling can also take place through personal correspondence, telephone conversations, or emails.

The Marketing Mix
Relationship Marketing
Attempts to gain customer loyalty by focusing on building long term relationships with consumers, placing an importance on the consumer's long term value on the ParkRun Brand rather than a one time transaction
"The most successful events in the world are those that serve people's interest and not only their own"
Kotler & Keller 2006
Regeneration of Southsea Skatepark
The Strategy

Improves Social Welfare
Creates a differentiated brand positioning
Building Strong consumer bonds
Creating a Reservoir of Goodwill
Corporate Social Responsibility
Social Causes
Sail flags along the courses
Lantern banners
Businesses need to take a pro-active approach and be ahead of these changes, rather than hurriedly making alterations to products and processes in a reactive way.
(Palmer, 2012, P. 512)
