Sample Solution

Completing primary research, the company has identified people between 30 and 50 years old to be the key target market, reaching a large proportion of Brighton’s population (idcommunity, 2016). It has been recognised that chosen target segment tends to drink more coffee than if the company would have targeted younger segments (Lutz, 2015). However, in order to achieve the short-term strategy to ‘increase brand awareness’, the company should revise its promotion strategies as social media platforms may not be the most optimal option to reach targeted customers due to fewer people above 30 years old using social media.

Thus, the company should periodically assess the threats including new technologies and changes in customer preferences (Dobbs and Koller, 2005), whilst utilising “key performance indicators” in order to control and manage “financial measures such as sales growth” but also “nonfinancial measures including product quality” (Mauboussin, 2012).
