Executive Summary: As a consultant to Karolina Swietoniowska, my role is to develop a comprehensive marketing plan to ensure Korra Dancewear meets its objective of increasing sales of $1000 to $2000 in monthly revenue as of January 2014. The following decisions have been made: * Target females ages 7-12 * Incorporate ballroom designs and put six of the seven current designs on discount * Lower price range from $40-70 to $20-35 * Advertise using Facebook ads and Google ads * Stick with online distribution

The following will now be discussed in detail.

By targeting a young female audience, Korra will be able to form brand recognition within a newly developed market in the dancewear industry. The competing companies have been established for quite a while now therefore are faithful to specific brands already, making children an appropriate audience so they can come to be long-term customers overtime. Korra apparel uses high standard material and has reasonable pricing which are things parents search for when purchasing products.

When the ballroom designs are released, the glitter and neon colors are expected to appeal to the young target market. Television dance shows like ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ have become popular due to ballroom dancing and parents want their children to become more active. If a young female feels confident in what she is wearing, she is more likely to pursue the activity. By keeping The Kai Bodysuit, sales are increasing, as it is already a popular item. The discount on the other six designs could help bring awareness to the company.

Decreasing the cost range from $40-$70 to $20-$35 will make it more…...

...contemporary entrepreneurs’’ (Donald F. Kuratko 2009). Additionally (Justin Gooderl Longenecker et all 2006) states that thirty eight per cent that leave their jobs to start a business are pulled by the prospect of being their own boss and reap the rewards. The case study of alternative publishing ltd clearly shows the concept independence in action. Majid the entrepreneur who founded the company Alternative publishing ltd explains his ‘’strong desire to be able to empower himself’’ whereby he can take his own decisions and be independent. The desire for independence and also achievement is seen as being important influence to starting a business (Hisrich 1986). In another case study of entrepreneurship in action Lesley the founder of Lawton dancewear ‘’always wanted to work for herself, to have independence’’. Having the experience background means individuals are naturally pulled into business. Therefore the individual would approach this opportunity and exploit it by starting a business. (B,Reena et all 2006). This pull factor concept of influence argues that individuals who started a business were ‘’ directly or indirectly former employees of established firms (Freeman, 1986). In general it is expected that a person with a very good experience background will have a good understanding of business and opportunities and therefore engage in entrepreneurship (Evans and Leighton 1989). This influential concept gives the employee a transition from being an employee to......

Lost Forests

...The slave is never named, he never has any dialogue. All the slave has in the story is action. Thus his social status is reflected even in the way the short story treats him. The slave's only value is his labor. Nothing else is important, not his name, not his thoughts, not the tale of his striving to return home. Korra, the master is always portrayed as a benevolent man, one who it is easy to imagine believed in the white man's burden to bring civilization to the benighted savages of the world. Thus he is a good master, who frees his slave as agreed upon after 5 years. It is not his fault that the slave did not reckon he would need money to travel, and thus was inevitably forced to work 2 more years for Korra. Moreover Korra is a decent man, whipping his slaves for their benefit, Then one day Korra whipped him. It did him good, and he wept... Korra fed him well that he might live long, kept him clean that he might be in good health, and at reasonable intervals whipped him so that he should be meek and respectful. Lost Forests even views the suffering of the slave as not only physically beneficial (as discussed above) but spiritually nourishing as well. For in the years of subjugation the slave learns how to count the seasons till he is free. This knowledge born of sorrow grants him, inner wealth, his spiritual treasure, which none could take from him or dispute with him. That which the slave has lost in reflected in the very title of Jensen's short story, Lost Forests.......

...tights, white T-shirts, socks and shoes. The only pair of tights I had was given to me by one of my teachers back in China. He'd got them from a British ballet dancer and they were bright blue. Zhang had a white pair of tights —I wasn't sure where he'd got them from. "No pants," I told Ben after I found the word "pants" i n my dictionary. "You don't need pants for class." Ben was puzzled. "Pants, pants!" I repeated as I demonstrated a plié and pointed at my legs. "You don't need pants, you only need ti… oh, tights!" Ben shouted excitedly. 246/404 Edited By Scatkevin Mao’s Last Dancer "Yes!" I wasn't sure what the word tights meant but it looked like Ben had understood so I smiled broadly. Ben quickly organised for us to go to a dancewear shop. Ben had given Stephanie, the company manager, enough money to buy Zhang and me two pairs of tights, dance belts and a pair of ballet shoes, over two hundred dollars worth each. I quickly did a currency conversion: two hundred dollars was equivalent to over two years of my dia's salary. How could I justify Ben spending two years salary on my dance wear! "Do you realise how much these tights and shoes cost?" I said to Zhang. "No. How much?" he asked. "Over a thousand yuan!" His jaw dropped then too. It was lunchtime when we arrived back at the academy and a Houston Ballet board member, Louisa Sarofim, was already waiting to take us to lunch at a nearby restaurant. From the way the restaurant owner treated Louisa, I knew we were......

Korra the Cruel, they call her. Her ship is crewed by beautiful young maids who geld every male they capture.” “Terrifying. I may well piss my breeches.” “Best not,” Duck warned darkly. “As you say. If we encounter this Lady Korra, I will just slip into a skirt and say that I am Cersei, the famous bearded beauty of King’s Landing.” This time Duck laughed, and Haldon said, “What a droll little fellow you are, Yollo.

Perhaps His Grey Grace will choose you to ornament his stony court.” Duck glanced at his companion uneasily. “It’s not good to jape of that one, not when we’re so near the Rhoyne.

Compiled list data Compiled list data are individual level data assembled by list bureaux or list vendors. They build their lists from a variety of personal, household and business sources. They might use local or council tax records, questionnaire response data, warranty card registrations or businesses’ published annual reports. Lists can be purchased outright or rented for a period of time and a defined number of uses. Once the list or its permitted use has expired, it must be removed from the database. If you were a retailer thinking of diversifying from leisurewear into dancewear and had little relevant customer data of your own, you might be interested in buying or renting data from an external source. Data could have been compiled by the bureau or vendor from a variety of sources, such as: ● ● ● memberships of dance schools student enrolments on dance courses at school and college recent purchasers of dance equipment Developing, managing and using customer-related databases 101 ● ● ● lifestyle questionnaire respondents who cite dance as an interest subscribers to dance magazines purchasers of tickets for dance and musical theatre.

Fibres and fabrics Lycra is not a fabric. The trademark Lycra is the property of the US-based chemical company Du Pont and is an Elastane fibre that lends itself to whichever fabric it is mixed with. Lycra is therefore an additive that gives knitted and woven textiles the quality of lasting stretch and recovery. It was first developed in 1959 and its first real use in garments was in the 1960s in ski wear and men’s cord trousers. It was really not until the 1980s that it took off in knitted garments. Lycra has become a household name associated with dancewear, swimwear, hosiery, cling-to-fit fashion separates such as leggings and vest dresses, in fact anything knitted. Lycra overcomes problems of fit and movement for body-hugging designs. Manufacturers obviously benefit from associations with a consumer recognizable brand in premium, superior quality garments and fabrics. Such is the swimwear market’s reliance on Lycra that swimwear designers do not design their collections until they have received Du Pont’s own fashion forecasts. Lycra is now being mixed with woven fabrics for outerwear and tailoring to take advantage of such benefits as improved appearance, 39 Fashion Marketing better drape and less wrinkling. There is more development into adding Lycra to other cloth to......
