There are 4 points of MARKETING STRATEGY that you must follow step by step. This is my real wooden toys startup in my local area, i hope this post can help your online business
Start to list all the different types of customers that suffer from the problems you solve. Once done, you can start to build up a picture of these customers. Group them by location – for example, high net worth individuals tend to live in certain postcodes. Group them by market sector – are they manufacturers, recruitment agents, and so on.
After analyzing the market and observe toys segment, see market IKID primarily focused on target groups:
Children aged 2-6 years: This is the user group of children are in the process of learning and adjusting to the outside world.
Quantity: More than 5.4 million children
Target customer: families with children between the ages selected market segments, aged 25-40 had average incomes and high living in my local with traditional forms of business and in the whole country to form online sales through online sales website.
Psychology: Children often attracted by the colorful, eye-catching, beautiful design products. But Parents always want to give their children the products with best quality. These products originated from the local toys help children learn by playing is the mother very trusted. Product prices do not much to influence purchasing decisions by customers targeted.
This strategy basically focuses upon the characteristics of the product or customer benefits. For example if I say Imported items it basically tell or illustrate a variety of product characteristics such as durability, economy or reliability etc.
The company brought to market both product categories: tangible products (toys) and intangible services (consultancy services and a play area for children)
– Tangible Products: include smart wooden toys, wooden puzzles stimulate the imagination and the brain development of children. The products are made from natural wood, light, easy to handle, with eye-catching colors and absolute safety of the products subject to childen from 2-6 years old.
– The invisible:
- play area allows children to experience the smart wooden toy in the store.
- The reading, enjoy the coffee for the parents as for the children to participate in games shop
- Services ordered online and delivered in convenient date.
Basically because of perception, as most of us perceive that if a product is expensive will be a quality product where as product that is cheap is lower in quality. If we look at this Price – quality approach it is important and is largely used in product positioning. In many product categories, there are brands that deliberately attempt to offer more in terms of service, features or performance. They charge more, partly to cover higher costs and partly to let the consumers believe that the product is, certainly of higher quality.
The average price of each product is from 30$-60$ VND, targeting income customers from 10-20 million / month. Through market research and customer surveys, this is said to be consistent with price affordability of parents with medium income.
