Marketing Program
Strategies for the Marketing Mix
Four P's
Product: Brand awareness

Price: Audience investment would be actually attending the party. For people we invite from NY it would be more of an investment for them to travel to LA and stay in the city. For locals and people traveling it would be buying an outfit, transportation, valet, etc. But the event itself would be free. For contest winners we would pay for their travel and hotel cost. (We worked a deal with the hotel where the SKYBAR is located so that the contest winners can stay there)

Place: Mondrian Los Angeles Skybar
8440 Sunset Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90069

Promotion: The social media contest will be the most effective in achieving our brand awareness goals. The party is a good way to get attention from our fan, social media, and our guests. Our guest will write about the even on their blogs, websites, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. This is our goal so that we can also reach their fans and audiences to promote our brand and create a greater Nasty Gal fan base.

Evaluation and Control
Rental Agreement with the SKYBAR at the Modrian hotel in Los Angeles
Security deposit for rental space

The SKYBAR at the Mondrian Los Angeles offers spectacular view of the city skyline. The hotel provides state-of-the art audio-visual and telecommunications equipment as well as flat panel monitors for audio-visual playback, smart boards, and a menu for food that can be catered for our event
This will be an exclusive event. We will be inviting fashion publications, top fashion bloggers, models, and LA and NY socialites. We also hired NY "It Girl" Hannah Bronfman to DJ the event. Nasty Gal's CEO Sophia Amoruso will be Co-Hosting with Rachel Lynch. We will have photographers taking pictures and videos of the event. We will also post the videos on our blog, website, and social media sites so our fans and customers who weren't able to attend can watch the event. We will give the videos and photographs to the guest so they can post them on their sites and blogs as well.

We will also hold a contest for 10 lucky Nasty Gal customers to get tickets to the event. To enter they must like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or Tumblr, or sign up for our emailing list. This way we can get more attention and hits on our social media sites. This will help us with our marketing goal of getting more brand awareness.

Risks: Though the event doesn't guarantee more sales or more new customers, we are holding this event to create brand awareness for Nasty Gal. The downside is that this party doesn't necessarily mean that the customers we are attempting to reach out to will go to the site and make a purchase.

Crucial Elements: Our most crucial element is that we invite a variety of guests. We really want to invite people who we can collaborate well with but we also want people who have different styles and aren't dressed head to toe in our styles. We want our guests to be on all different side of the spectrum with completely different followings. If we get our special guests in Nasty Gal and admiring the brand through their social media sites, their fans and followers will hopefully begin to start liking the brand as well. We want to show new customers that Nasty Gal can be worn in a variety of ways and that it can be wearable for the party girl or the conservative girl
