CASE STUDY 2:
BlitzMegaplex vs. 21Cineplex

The main issue of this case study talks about how BlitzMegaplex is trying to figure out new marketing strategies in order to get a balanced competition with the long-time market leader in cinemas industry, 21Cineplex.
First of all, let’s talk about what BlitzMegaplex has done so far to compete with 21Cineplex. As the new market challenger in the industry, BlitzMegaplex had to define its strategic objective and opponents. It is clear that their opponent is the long-time market leader 21Cineplex and their objective is to attack them. Of course it was not easy to break through the industry. Therefore, BlitzMegaplex has implemented several general attack strategies in order to do so, such as:

* Frontal attack
21Cineplex has the upper hand since its cinemas can be found on almost every shopping mall in Indonesia. BlitzMegaplex tries to compete with them by opening up their cinemas on some of the biggest and prestigious shopping malls on Jakarta and Bandung, such as Paris Van Java, Grand Indonesia, Central Park, Mall of Indonesia, Pacific Place, Teraskota, and Bekasi Cyber Park.
BlitzMegaplex plays current popular national & Hollywood movies, just like 21Cineplex does. In addition, people can find independent movies on BlitzMegaplex, while they wouldn’t find them on 21Cineplex.

* Flank attack
BlitzMegaplex offers more comfort and luxury by having several different classes of auditorium: Regular Class, Satin Class, Velvet Room, and Dining Room. This can be considered as a flanking attack because BlitzMegaplex creates gaps for 21Cineplex to fulfill, considering 21Cineplex didn’t have such various and extravagant auditoriums aimed like…...

Marketing Case Study

...III. Identify the target market for your new restaurant. Based on the analysis about the general environment of restaurant above, we decide to choose our target market is Student. To specify, those are Students in universities nearby, included students from National Economic University (NEU), Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), National University of Civil Engineering (NUCE), Hanoi Open University, high school students studying in the big examination-training center that located on Ta Quang Buu Street. There are some main reasons for our choice. First of all, in this particular area (near Ta Quang Buu street), there is a few good restaurants. The canteen of Hanoi University of Science and Technology seems to be the biggest competitor around here. According to our observation, because serving students is the most important objective, dishes in this canteen only focus on the price - not the quality, so their meals are cheap but not delicious at all. Besides, many “sidewalk restaurants” – small competitors of our future restaurant - have various types of foods; however, the quality and hygiene are bad along with not good decorations. That’s why they are not favorite choices of students. The size of our restaurant is small and medium, so it’s easy to start because of the starting capital is not too much and the demanding is high. In addition, the canteen has no marketing strategy. Therefore, if we are more dynamic, we can make great stride and create our own...

...Marketing Case Study: Coke 1) The Coca-Cola company is being very strategic as to who it markets each of its products. For the most part, they do not overlap on who they market each product to; instead they are trying to create a brand that can be easily identifiable with one market. The first product primarily uses gender segmentation, Diet Coke is for the most part marketed to women who are trying to watch or lose weight. The next product, Coke Zero also uses gender segmentation as it is marketed towards the male population. Two products Coca-Cola produces is Diet Coke Plus and Coca-Cola Blak, each of these products uses psychographic segmentation. Instead of marketing to a gender they are marketing to lifestyles. Diet Coke Plus is marketed to those that are concerned about vitamins and nutrients, while Coca-Cola Blak is market to those that are more sophisticated. Finally, Full Throttle Blue Demon is an energy drink that uses gender and ethnic segmentation as its target market is Hispanic males. 2) Diet Coke, original Coca-Cola, and finally Diet Coke Plus are the products that are most likely to lose customers to Coke Zero. First, Coke Zero is going to take customers away from Diet Coke because it is more appealing to male consumers. Additionally, Original Coke will lose customers that are interested in a zero calorie drink but did not want to sacrifice taste. Finally, Diet Coke Plus will also lose customers to Coke Zero because of the original-like taste it...

Marketing Study Case : Diesel

...Study case : Diesel “Live, breathe and wear passion” 1 : Explain which of the promotional strategies used by
Diesel are above- or below-the-line. Analyse the impact
that each approach might have ? There are two different types of promotional strategies. One is above the line and the other one is below the line. Above the line is using the media like television, radio to promote your product to a mass audience. Below the line is looking to reach a customer not a whole bunch of people, an example of a below the line is using catalogues, direct mail. An above the line strategy used by diesel is through commercials and billboards. The Television ad of diesel has probably the biggest impact to their company because everyone watches television. When people see their advertisement they will think about the product and if they like it they might go to a Diesel store and buy their products. Another above the line strategy that Diesel uses is music. They now have their own radio station and they sign bands that are unknown and give them a chance to be heard by people. This can help Diesel to promote their company because when the unsigned band becomes famous Diesel will sponsor them when they go to tours and concerts. People who like the band will copy what their wearing and therefore diesel will be able to sell. A below the line strategy that Diesel uses is they have special offers. Customer’s loves special offers, so when they see that Diesel has a special offer...

Retail Marketing Case Study

...James Borda Retail Marketing 10/5/12 Case 10 Case Study 1. Over the last decade, American Eagle and Abercrombie and Fitch have been two of the main clothing retailers competing for the affection of young adult shoppers, specifically within the teen-college age range of 18-22 years. While both companies carry a similar assortment of clothing apparel and try to cater to the same demographic, each company’s retail strategy does differ in various ways. A retail strategy is defined as the way in which a firm plans to focus its resources to accomplish its objectives. Being that both companies have the same target market and nature of merchandise, they both attempt to look for ways to gain a competitive advantage through their retail strategies. One main difference in their strategies is that American Eagle attempts to gain an advantage by selling their products at lower prices. By offering apparel that is equivalent to that of Abercrombie and selling it at a cheaper price they are able to attract the consumer who is looking to save money. On the other hand, Abercrombie keeps their prices a little bit higher to give off the appearance of higher quality in hopes to attract the consumer who looks to buy name brand, higher end clothing. Moreover, though it is incredibly important to gain a competitive advantage over other retailers in your market, it is even more crucial to sustain that advantage. Abercrombie has positioned itself strictly within the market of 18-22 year olds...

...Case study A New Spin on Cycling: What is the Market Value of a Name? Cycling presents a great number of advantages over other forms of transportation. The advantages of cycling include, for: Society, inexpensive infrastructure requirements and environmental sustainability, and Individuals, benefit from cycling as a healthy exercise as well as an inexpensive mode of transport that, in some urban areas, can be faster than other transport modes (e.g. it often allows cyclists to avoid traffic jams and other obstructions). St. Kilda Bikes is a small to medium sized enterprise (SME) situated in the CBD of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The firms specialises in distributing the worldrenowned Spanish brand “Orbea” bikes and their own design bike models, which are manufactured in China under the firm’s brand-name and sold in the Asia Pacific region. During 2008-11, the firm doubled its sales, even though the global financial crisis had dramatically eroded consumer purchasing power. Vincent Hong, the 25 year old owner of the business, learned from reading a popular magazine (Business Review Weekly) that much of the firm’s recent success may be attributable to cycling becoming a trendy and popular sport in Australia. Browsing the Internet, he decided to briefly cross-check the article with the Retail Cycle Traders Australia Website (RCTA, 2008), from which he found that the trend has continued for at least a decade and that: “Bicycle sales in Australia averaged 795,000 per year for...

Marketing Case Study

...Case Study The information in the Case Study is used each week when writing the individual sections of the Marketing Communications Plan. One of your neighbors has just inherited a restaurant in a small town about 75 miles away. They’ve never owned or operated a business before, and know very little about marketing or the restaurant business. They now have a Marketing Plan, but need help with the Marketing Communications Plan. General Restaurant Information Provided by Your Neighbors: 1. They want to keep the “family’s” restaurant as a legacy to their family members who left it to them. However, they will need to make money immediately in order to replace the income they lost when they quit their jobs to run the restaurant. 2. The restaurant has been losing sales/profits over the past few years.  Family members have had some health issues (and have since passed away) and have not had the time to manage the restaurant effectively.  For the past few months, the Chef and some of the servers have been keeping the restaurant open. 3. The restaurant has a good reputation in the small community.  The town has a population of 6,000 people.  It is in a good location (right off an interstate) and does additional sales catering to local businesses in the area.  Over-the-road semi-drivers say it is the best cup of coffee in town and town’s people know that you can always find the local sheriff and highway patrol officers eating there.  People are allowed to smoke at...

Brown vs Mississippi Case Study

...In the case of Brown vs. Mississippi, three defendants Ed Brown, Henry Shields, and Yanks Ellington were charged and indicted for the murder of Raymond Stewart. Stewart was murdered on March 30, 1934 and the defendants were indicted on April 4, 1934. The defendants pleaded not guilty with their court appointed attorneys. After they were arraigned their trial was set for the following day, and convicted a day later. In the case there was absolutely no physical evidence linking the men to the murder except for their confessions. The defendants testified that their confessions were false and that they were subject to physical torture by the police and some citizens in order to obtain the confessions. When the jurors were given their instructions the defendant’s attorney were informed that if they had any reasonable doubt as to if the confessions were created through coercion or not, then they should not be used as evidence. The defendants were then moved to the Mississippi Supreme Court for a new trial to determine that if the evidence obtained against the defendants was obtained through coercion and brutality, known to the court and to the district attorney, and that the defendants were denied the benefit of counsel or opportunity to confer with counsel in a reasonable manner. The defendants filed that there was a suggestion of error and that they were denied the used of counsel when the confessions were taken violating the due process clause of the Fourteenth...

Case Study "Angels vs Demons"

...Rukhami, Case study #1 The following case study is about the most profitable investment, which should be recognized by the angels with help of different relevant and vital questions. Depending on the kind of the proposed projects, I would like to figure out the advantages and perspectives of each of them. However, I think that there are some fundamental questions to ask. It’s necessarily to be highly interested in a financial side of a project. That’s why the first questions I would ask are: “What is the estimated price to launch and maintain my investment? What is the predicted revenue? How profitable is it? How liquid is this suggestion? What is my biggest risk and how much can I loss in total?” The next step is to identify who is the potential customer, whether there are a lot of competitors or not, has this kind of business already existed before, etc. (questions to ask in every segment) Now, let’s concentrate on every proposition specifically. * Manufacture of small bottles of flavours. The flavours you can add to water or other drinks to get the taste you like. Having analyzed the detailed information about this product, I came to the point to start up my interview with clarifying “Why is it innovative?” “How much would one bottle cost?” “What would be the market price per one unit?” “Did a marketing research take a place? If yes, what are the results and what did the questionnaires show?” “Who came up with this idea and why does he/she believe in it?” “Which...

Marketing Case Study

...Aleksandra Gavazova BUS-201-004 Case Study #1: Besitti’s Restaurant 22-September-2015 To begin with, Rosa already had another restaurant that was, and it is, probably still doing well under the control of her brother, so she has a profound understanding of how restaurants work as well as years of experience. Franchise chains are a good option for people who are completely new in the field, because the franchise company gives them all the training they need, a ready strategy that they only need to follow, and an established clientele of the brand who are familiar with the products and quality of the company. It looks like Rosa really knows what she is doing and understands the restaurant business in its foundations, because she is going step by step through the three main Marketing Management Processes. First, she made her planning in details and made a really good choice with the location (place), which is one of so called “Four Ps” of Variables in the Marketing Mix. After that, Rosa went to the second marketing management process—the implementation of her strategy, which she did successfully, because even at the beginning when she opened her restaurant, it wasn’t working on loss. The restaurant was always at least covering its costs for maintainance, which for a newly open place is a big achievement. Rosa shouldn’t be so scared from the franchise chains around her and neither from the pizza that it may come in the same shopping center, because she has a unique...

Marketing Case Study

...Cassie Smith International Marketing Case Study 3: Microwave Ovens Microwave ovens were first introduced in the commercial market in 1952 and has been gaining popularity ever since, growing to become a standard kitchen appliance in most households. However, the potential growth may have been on a standstill in the market of South-East Asia. Microwaves aren’t the first-option to cook with in India compared to European countries or the United States. The Indian culture prefers to cook in the kitchen using fresh ingredients, herbs, and spices rather than use a conventional microwave as compared to the Western culture. Some people of the culture tends to think that the dishes will taste different if it was cooked in the microwave versus the stove/oven. Microwaves are beginning to become an emerging trend in some small towns in India. So much so that the microwave oven is beginning to replace the demand for a 2nd television or bigger television. Marketers have the challenging task of convincing the Indian consumer that microwaves are suited to not just reheat but to also cook Indian food. The target customers are middle class people living in either an urban or suburban area. They would be college graduated or higher, age 22-40 years old, with an income of over Rs 30,000. The targeted lifestyle would be for modern cooking, or a hurry-up lifestyle, or a growing family that likes to spend time together. The product should have features that would increase the likeliness of...
