Must exercise caution in obtaining financing since it is a SME
Should conduct cost benefit analysis before making hiring or purchasing decisions (3) Proper Management Handling When entering a new market proper market research must be done
Proper planning,research and cost-benefit analysis
The business should offer what the customer wants and needs These websites are a big threat, especially in the lower-end digital camera market
They offer multimedia products at a much cheaper price and delivery the products for a nominal fee
Enjoy great popularity with consumers
The business should partner with these websites to prevent erosion of its competitive advantage. Yes, once business has built a sufficiently large customer base outside its current neighborhood
Business expansion may cause our current store to be unable to cater to customers’ needs
Brick and mortar stores will always remain relevant despite the rising popularity of e-stores
The new outlet can also serve as a convenient “pick-up-point” for customers that do not want to wait for the products to be delivered to them (1) Limited Financial Resources Are deal-of-the-day websites, such as Groupon, BuyWithMe, and 1Sale a threat to Showtime Media’s current and potential market? Should Showtime Media open a new brick-and-mortar outlet in another city to further expand its target market? Conclusion Strong reputation in current market segment
Met with lackluster results in widening target market
Different marketing strategies must be implemented through use of marketing mix
Must be done without alienating existing customers
Take this opportunity to strengthen all our marketing strategies: positioning as a one-stop location
selling innovative products
online store
penetration pricing and price skimming Promotional strategies: bundling
B2B - long-term contracts
C2C - "Word of mouth” and “Word of mouse”
