Transcript of market plan

before we go further there are two key points to establish: 1.Route to market 2. The target audience(s) it's a bit of a chicken & egg situation... direct Vs channel CLAIM ???? Multi-channel route inevitable the increase in popularity of 'bespoke booking' AND explosion of web use for travel info & booking means we can't ignore direct the reach, reputation and power of key, luxury tour operators (e.g. Kuoni, H&J etc) means a channel plan must also be adopted BUT Chicken or egg? DEFINE AUDIENCE FIRST.
unerstanding your customers, knowing where and how they work, rest & play means you can target them more efficiently. That's better meassaging, better media choices and in turn better ROI! OR DEFINE ROUTE FIRST.
by defining a route to market from the outset, you can establish clean messaging, clean infrastructure and eliminate channel conflict What do we already know So now for some detail... The target audience As mentioned, if you really know your target audience and segment them accordingly; you can target them more effectively. Media is EXPENSIVE so let's use it wisely. An ad costing £1 in a publication with 10,000 readers might seem like a good deal next to an ad that costs £1000 in a publication with 1,000. But if the cheap ad is not read or (worse still) the publication does not have the right image, it's just wasted money... Segmenting our customer base to segment them, let's stereotype them: 1.LUXURY HOLIDAY MAKERS: repeaters 2.LUXURY HOLIDAY MAKERS: one offs 3.LUXURY HOLIDAY MAKERS: dialysis 4.BUSINESS CONFRENCERS 5.CHARITABLE ORGANISATIONS & TRUSTS 6.KEY INFLUNCERS Split into age groups A. older, retired/semi-retired couples NOTE: with multiple channels comes potential channel conflect. This is a potential constraint and needs to be managed from the outset.
1. Set RRP and ensure adhered to.
2. ensure channel relationships are managed - regular contact is essential
3. ensure bookings are clearly defined.
4. discuss potential of channel booking repeating via direct - ensure channel contracts are not restrictive AND expensive!
5. Sorry - exclusive contracts not available. NOTE: with multiple channels comes the need for more complex infrastructure.

In January 2011, TPS East Afric, operator of Serena Hotels, announced that it had opened what it claims are East Africa's first tele-presence suites. OPPORTUNITY: Budget air carriers such as Fly540 are expanding to bring tourists from within Africa to the Mombasa region we should apportion the majority of our direct advertising budget on the markets we know:
60% UK
20% europe (key countries)
20% us
