plan are not much complicated. Research is very important before starting any
business, so weve also conducted a survey through which we came to know the
demand level, and some most important variables. The main idea behind our
business plan was to provide ease and convenience to female because it is
observed that this is considered an important factor and after results of survey it
is also proven right that women give much preference to the factor of
convenience while shopping. We have developed a comprehensive finance plan
for the project, which is one of the main elements for success of the ventures. It
has started with capital of Rs.10 millions.
In the start we have focus on big city of the Pakistan Faisalabad for its launching
with our own outlets with manufacturing unit in Faisalabad as it is known as the
Manchester of the Pakistan and is more attractive for foreigner. In the long run
we have produced our product in Faisalabad.

different medium for promotion like, Electronic and Print Media.
Our entrepreneurial team is new to this market but have very strong skill and
knowledge about the process of the product.
The industry has potential to be profitable within a short period. No guarantees
are expressed or implied regarding the success of the venture described in this
business plan.

BUSINESS PLAN
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
The business we aimed to initiate is basically ladies shoes with changeable tops.
These types of shoes are not available in the current market. As we know that
Faisalabad is considered as the Manchester of Faisalabad, thats why we are
planning to start our business operations here. We have start with a
manufacturing unit at Small state industrial area Faisalabad. Outlets are going to
provide traditional ladies shoes. These are the first chain of retail stores where
customers have a variety in tops changeable shoes, Shoes have also be
available in two types i.e. Chapel & sandals. We plan to open our outlets at busy
centers at D-ground & Kohinoor plaza in Faisalabad. These markets have also
potential for this business; specifically these items are not available in market. In
the existing location, we should develop a themed dcor related to the purely
Eastern and Pakistani culture. Females of all age groups will definitely feel
attraction because outlets have variety of these two items according to all age
groups. All the females whether they are from any background have feel comfort
and ease to visit the store due to the presence of sales girls. We are going to

CURRENT MARKET SITUATION


Whenever we are talking about the shoes, the first thing comes into mind, that
shoes are not stylish for ladies ,the current marketing situation of shoes does not
remain comfortable and stylish because different types of shoes are available in
market. Our shoes have a very different style that is not available in the market.
These shoes will provide high level of relaxation and satisfaction to gain market
share in this dynamic environment, our company must carefully target specific
segment with features that deliver value by each customer.
MARKET HIGHLIGHT:
The Pakistani shoes industry remains sustainable. The annual sales of shoes are
increasing very vastly. It is because every one wants to go out to the market
because every one wants to wear out new stylish shoes.
MARKET REVIEW:
In Pakistan different shoe companies are providing their product like ECS, Stylo
and Comely, but our company will provide unique style of ladies shoes. Our
shoes consist of two parts the sole and the top (upper) separately. Such shoes
are not available in the market.

MARKET SEGMENTATION
MARKET SEGMENTATION:
First of all we have launched our product only in big city of Pakistan Faisalabad.
First we made segment of this city. After making these segments we evaluate
each segment to analyze, which segment is beneficial for us. We made on below
mentioned basis.

GEOGRAPHIC
DEMOGRAPHIC
PSYCHOGRAPHIC
Behavioral

Geographic Segmentation:
In geographic segments we have decided to launch our product in Faisalabad,
we made divisions in Faisalabad d-ground & Kohinoor plaza. With this
segmentation we can easily understand the need wants and demand of the
people of Faisalabad.
Demographic Segmentation:
In demographic segmentation we have divide ladies according to their ages and
life cycle. We have divided our customer regarding to their ages as children
teenagers twenty plus, thirty plus and so on more than sixty years. But we have
analyze that ladies of twenty plus are more interested in our product

13

Age Group:
a) 5-10 years
b) 10-15 years
c) 15-20 years
d) Above 20
Gender segmentation:
We need not to make the search on gender segmentation because our product is
only for female.
Income Segmentation:
We easily made the division according to the income of the people. Through the
income segmentation we divide the people into different levels of groups
regarding their income. Such like
Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000
Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000
Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000
Psychographic Segmentation:
To analyze, the psyche of ladies of Faisalabad we divide them in social classes
according to their status and personality. According to social class following are
the five types which are available Faisalabad.
Lower upper class
Upper middle class
Middle class
Lower middle class
Lower class

For making best marketing structure we set a responsible price which suits for
lower upper and upper middle class.
Behavioral Segmentation:
Behavioral segmentation divides buyers into groups, based on their Knowledge,
Attitude, Uses, or Responses to a product. We also believe like many marketers
that behavior variables are the best starting point for building the best market
segmentation. In Faisalabad we see the behaviors of the people with the help of
the questionnaire. After filling the questionnaire we easily determine the values
like Occasions, Benefits, User Status, User Rates, Loyalty, Readiness stage, and
Attitude towards the product.
Many of the people want a shoe like elegant shoes. But the problem is that no
Edible company focuses on these needs, wants, and demands of the people.

14

Competitive Review:
If we make a close look to the Edible industry then see that a lot of companies
which facilitate the people by providing such types of products. There are lot of
big and small companies which compete each other. Each and every of them
want to defeat their competitors. For this purpose they facilitate their customers
more than others. Now the problem is that we are launching a new product in the
summer season. Many of the companies launch their types of products in the
summer season. It means these companies are as a hurdle for our Sauce. For
this purpose we made a strategy discussed later in the plan.
Our Key Competitors:

15

Industry Competition
In Industry there is not only one firm or company who produce the shoes. It
means there in no monopoly but there is perfect competition. Perfect competition
means that many firms and companies are working as the competitors of each
other.
Now if we see the competitors of elegant shoes then we see the name ECS first.
Why the ECS first? In answer to this question we can say ECS is the largest
selling company of Shoes in Faisalabad. We can see that ECS made many
Shoes like chapel sandal pumpies etc.
On the other hand if we see the other types of companies like STYLO also made
the good sale. These companies also produce same like ECS but there is a little
different variety.
It means we have to face lot of problems at the time of launching of elegant
shoes. There is already much competition and we also be with them in near
future after introducing elegant shoes.

MARKET PLAN
OBJECTIVES AND ISSUES:
Every Company has objectives and issues regarding their product. Different
companies have different objectives like some companies want to increase their
sale, some want to maximize their profits, and some want to increase their
market share value etc
We also have some objectives and issues according to our product. For this
purpose we made a three year strategy in which we define our objectives clearly.
Our objectives are divided into market terms. These objectives are.
MARKET OBJECTIVES:1ST YEAR OBJECTIVES:
In 1st year we want to capture 20% market share value. For this purpose we are
promoting our sales. Our satiations made forecasting and said that we will
capture the required level of market share after promoting the sales volume.
2ND YEAR OBJECTIVES:
We will capture the 35% of market share value of market industry in the 2nd year.
For this purpose we will launch 1 new product having same brand. We will follow
this strategy if we get 20% share value of footwear market in the 1st year
otherwise we will change our strategy. We will start work on it after launching.
3RD YEAR OBJECTIVES:
We want to capture 60% of Footwear market share value in 3rd year. It is
compulsory for us to increase our sales by launching new products in the same
brand, to capture the required level of market share.
In 3rd year we will completely change our strategy. We will launch Boots in the
winter season. It might be the best way to achieve the required level of market
share.
SALES OBJECTIVES:
As we already discussed in the market objectives that we have increase sales
year to year. We cannot tell perfectly that how much sales could be made within
our strategic year but our target is 5 millions.
PROFIT OBJECTIVES:
We are committed to earn 30% profit on sales in 1st year. For this purpose we
will reduce our cost and maximized our profit. Our company will commit to attain
our objectives and goals in defined time period. All the objectives and goals are
supposed to be a great challenge for us.

17

Key Issues
Market Competition
There is a sound competition in Shoes market. It is very difficult to entre into the
market with a new product in this lot of competition between STYLO and ECS. It
is a great issue for us.
Sound Brand Images of Our Competitors:
Each and everyone know about our competitor`s brand. People have lot of
awareness of their brands. Another great issue for us is that they have strong
brand image as compared to Elegant Shoes. It means we have to face a lot of
problems while entering in the market.
Heavy Promotion of Competitors:
Our competitors already made heavy promotion of their brands and products. To
compete our competitors we have to make a heavy promotion otherwise we fail
to achieve our objectives.
Permanent Customers:
Our competitors already have lot of customers. Those customers who believe in
our competitors and a good position in their mind. It is because our competitors
provide them the things that they want.

18

Marketing Strategy
Our marketing strategy is based on these three elements
Segmentation.
Targeting.
Positioning.
These three elements are defined in detail below
Segmentation:
We segmented the market on the following basis
Evaluating Market Segments:Segment Size and Growth:Segment Structural Attractiveness:Company Objective and Resources:Level Of Competition: Substitute Product: Power Of Buyers:-

Power Of Suppliers:Evaluating Market Segments:


First of al we must evaluate the various segments and we will decide how many
and which segment we can serve best. Here we evaluate target market
segments.
Segment Size and Growth:
Before selecting any target market first we will evaluate segment size and
growth. We will first collect and analyze on current segment sales, growth rates,
and expected profit from segment. We will be interested in that segment which
have right size growth.
Segment Structural Attractiveness:
We also need to examine major structural factors that affect long run segment
attractiveness. A segment may be less attractive if it already contains many
strong and aggressive competitors. The existence of many actual or potential
substitute products may limit prices and profit that can be earned from that
segment. The relative power of buyers also affects attractiveness.

19

Company Objectives and Resources:


After evaluating segment size, growth and attractiveness we will evaluate
company objectives and resources. Some attractive segments may be dismissed
quickly because they did not match with company long run objectives or
company may lack of skills and resources needed to succeed in attractive
segment. We will access that our objective may fulfill in this segment or not. Our
resources will meet the requirements of the segment or not.
Level of Competition:
We will evaluate the level of competition in the segment. Competition may be
less or more in the segment. There may be pure competition, monopolistic
competition, oligopolistic competition, or pure monopoly in the segment.
Substitute Products:
We will evaluate the substitute products in the market regarding our product.
There may be some substitute products in the segment which affect the demand
of our product.
Power of Buyers:
We will also evaluate the power of buyers in the segment. We will also access
the per capita income of our buyers rather they can purchase our products or not.
Powerful Suppliers:
In this we will evaluate the suppliers in segment that they are powerful or not.

20

Targeting
After evaluating different segments, now we will must decide which and how
segments we will target.
A target market will consist of buyers who share common needs or
characteristics that we will decide to serve.
Undifferentiated Marketing:
We will not select undifferentiated marketing because we will not enter in the
market with one offer for all customers. In undifferentiated marketing the
difficulties arises in developing a product or brand that will satisfy all consumers.
The companies which select mass marketing often face trouble competing with
more focused firms that do a better job of satisfying the needs of specific
segment and niches. Due to this we will not select undifferentiated or Mass
marketing.
Differentiated Marketing:
Using differentiated marketing strategy we will decide to target several market
segments and designs separate offer for each.
By offering product and marketing variations to segments, we will hope for higher
sales and a stronger position within each segment. We will develop stronger
position within several segments which will create more total sales than
undifferentiated marketing across all segments. We will satisfy the needs of each
segment according to their requirements and wants.
In differentiated marketing the cost of business also increases. It is so much
expensive to produce goods according to need of an individual segment. The
promotion costs also increases to give aware about product to segments
separately. But we are committed to achieve our market objective and especially
we want customer satisfaction. For this purpose we will select differentiated
marketing.
Concentrated Marketing:
We will not select concentrated marketing because we have so enough
resources to meet the needs of an individual segment. Through selecting
concentrated marketing segment we will not achieve our objectives.

21

Local Marketing:
We also select Local Marketing to satisfy the needs and wants of local customers
groups, cities, neighborhoods, and even specific stores. We will do Local
Marketing with differentiated marketing.

Considerations when Choosing Target Market Strategy.


Considerations include

Company Resources
The degree of product variability
Product life cycle stage
Market variability
Competitors marketing strategies

Choosing a Differentiation and Positioning Strategy


Differentiation Tools:
Differentiation is a set of meaningful differences to distinguish the company
offering from competitors offerings. Our brand will be a specialized Industry for
the Edible market products items with the state of the art technology. It has huge
plant for processing and manufacturing the Edible market products like Shoes,
Our brand will emphasize on the following tools:

1. Product Differentiation:
Form:
Our product is shoes which is used for wearing in normal life. In our promotion
we will focus on product differentiation. Through our promotion we will tell our
customers main differences of our product from our competitors. We have a shoe
in the market which is a multi purpose.
Performance Quality:
We made the best quality product its because it is a new product and also for
getting more and more response, and to gain the best level of goodwill in
Faisalabad. It is a valuable shoes for females living in Faisalabad. The standard
of shoes is quiet match with the high level of Shoes
Durability:

22

Our product is completely durable but we give our customer 4 month warranty. .

2. Service Differentiation:
Customer Consulting:
We will arrange a customer consulting program which will be telecast on some
well known TV channel. Through this program we consult with our customer and
ask some questions regarding our product. We will try to solve the problems of
our customers.

3. Personnel Differentiation:
Companies can gain strong competitive advantage through having better trained
people. Our Brand will have an edge over its competitors in the personnel
differentiation because its personnel have competence to serve its customers,
are friendly, respectful with its customers. The personnel performance is credible
because of their commitment with the customer.

Positioning Statements:
Save your moments and enjoy your moments
Make your life so easy and comfortable

Level of Positioning:
Basically there are three level of positioning through which we will position our
products in the customers minds. For positioning of our product we will use these
three levels.
1- Positioning by Attributes
2- Positioning by Benefits
3- Positioning by Values
Positioning by Attributes:We will position our product on the basis of attributes and features of our product.
We will focus on attributes and features of Elegant shoes which it contains.
Through our positioning we will try to set and fix the features of Elegant shoes in
the minds of our customers. In positioning we will focus more on the features and
attributes of our product.
Positioning by Benefits:
We will also focus on the benefits of the product when we will position our
product. Through positioning we will tell our customers how many benefits they
can get from our product. Our product has main benefit that it is a multi purpose
product which we will target in positioning of our product.
Positioning by Values:

23

We will also position our product on the basis of customer values. Like this, If you
want to look gorgeous than use Elegant shoes.
Reason:
Our product lies in FMCG category; due to this our main focus will be on two
levels, Attributes and Benefits. For FMCG, these two levels are very beneficial.
We will talk on values but little bit, because in FMCG category value is not
concerned more. FMCG category is lying in convenient goods, in this type of
goods values have not so enough weight age. Values are mostly concerned in
shopping goods and special goods. So due to this our main focus will be on two
levels Positioning by Attributes and Positioning by Benefits.

24

PRICING
Price is amount of money which we have charge from our customers in return.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN SETTING PRICE:
During setting the price we have consider these factors.
1-Internal Factors
2-External factors
1. INTERNAL FACTORS:
During setting the price we have first consider internal factors, like
Marketing objectives
Marketing mix strategies
Cost
Organizational consideration
MARKETING OBJECTIVES:
When we have set the price of our product then from internal factors we have
consider the following factors.
Survival
Current profit maximization
Market share leadership
Product quality leadership
MARKETING MIX STRATEGIES:
We have carefully coordinate price with other marketing mix elements. We have
used target costing to support product positioning strategies based on price.
COST:
During setting the price we have access the cost, variable cost, fixed cost and
total cost.
ORGANIZATIONAL CONSIDERATION:
We will created price setting department which have set the prices.
2. EXTERNAL FACTORS:
After considering the internal factors we will access the some external factors as,
1-Nature of market and demand
2-Competitive costs, prices and offers

25

3-Other environmental elements


NATURE OF MARKET AND DEMAND:
Before setting the price we have access the nature of market and demand. We
have assessed that which type of market is existing. Rather there is pure
competition, Monopolistic competition, Oligopolistic competition or pure
monopoly. After accessing these types of market then we have set our price.
We find that there is a perfect competition.
COMPETITORS COST, PRICES AND OFFERS:
We have also access the cost per unit, prices and offers of our competitors. We
have access the pricing strategies of our competitors. We have access that what
is per unit cost of our competitors and what prices they are charging from
customers. We also access the competitors offers related to price. After
accessing these factors we have set our price.
OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL ELEMENTS:
Before setting the price we access the economic condition of Pakistan. We have
also access the inflation rate in Pakistan. We have also access the market
condition like boom, recovery or recession.
We have evaluated the Govt restrictions regarding price.

PRICING APPROACH
VALUE BASED PRICING:
We have choose value base pricing, we have charge fairly low price for a high
offering. Value pricing says that the price should represent a high-value offer to
consumers. Value based pricing uses buyers perception of value, not the seller
cost as the key to pricing.
We set its target price based on the customer perceptions of the product value.
The targeted value and price then drive decisions about product and what cost
can be incurred. As a result, pricing begins with analyzing consumer needs and
value perceptions, and price is set to match consumer perceived value.
Value pricing is not a matter of simply setting lower prices on ones
products compared to competitors. A matter of re-engineering the companys
operations to become a low- cost producer without sacrificing quality, and
lowering prices significantly to attract a large number of value-conscious
customers.

26

REASON
During the past decades, marketers have noted a fundamental shift in consumer
attitude toward price and quality. Many companies have changed their pricing
approaches to bring them into line with changing economic conditions and
consumer price perceptions. More and more marketers have adopted value
based pricing strategies, offering the just right combination of quality and good
service at fair price. Due to this changing economic environment we will choose
Value Based Pricing.
Break Even:
It is the point where we will cover our total revenue and our total cost in terms of
units and volume. It can be verified by the following formula
Break Even Volume = Fixed Cost / Price Variable Cost
We will struggle to get our break even point to cover our cost in terms of units
and sales.

Our Prices schedule

Pricing Objectives
There are many general pricing objectives which include survival, current profit
maximization, market share leadership, product quality leadership and
relationship building. From these objectives we will select two pricing objectives
which are very clear
1-Market Share Leadership
2-Product Quality Leadership
Market Share Leadership
Within this price we want to capture great market share. Our product price is
reasonable. It is not too much expensive. People of middle class easily afford its
price. We set such normal price of our product because we want to capture
market share. Through this price we will capture the market share.

27

Product Quality Leadership:


We believe in quality. Within this price we will make sure the quality of our
product. We will not compromise with quality. Our product is quality based
product. We will charge from our customers by giving them superior quality. In
the market we are assured to get product quality leadership.
Reason:
Reason is that we have marketing objectives of first three years. In this objective
we mention that we want to capture high market share in first three years. So we
select the market share leadership objective.
We select the product quality leadership because we are promised to give
quality, satisfaction and value to our customer.

28

SWOT ANALYSIS OF ELEGANT SHOES


In a SWOT analysis you identify strengths, weaknesses, market opportunities for
your company, and threats to your business.
STRENGTHS:
Our quality and differentiation is our main vigor!!! Our architecture should be
another depicter of our essence to create an antique stroke well not only
provide our customers their quality demanded and designing but the
atmospherewed be the pacesetters in the city to endorse our culture and art at
this extent.
Convenient shopping facilities for women, as dealers are only females.
Availability of shoes with the blend of traditional culture and current fashion.
WEAKNESSES:

No brand name in the beginning.

We have not the product line.

We have less market share value as compared to or competitors.

General perception about shoes is that these are not very much durable.

We have less budget as compared to our competitors.

We have less technical resources.

OPPORTUNITIES:

Well have certain opportunities in the region were focusing. We may


increase our products to a long extent. There might be a long range of
children outfits, and many more things which can be made by the spare
material. Hence the demand of shoes is so sky-scraping and many striking
decorative items might be made with the traditional tinge there is further
range of home accessories that might be grappled!!! There in no any
product in the market having the features of Elegant Shoes.

33

THREAT:

There is a great threat of designs, which are our main dynamism, to be


copied with a cheap material and stumpy finishing and resulting in a low
price. But imaginative intelligence doesnt fuss!!! Were creating
something spanking new each moment and our moments might not be
worn-out.

Suggestions for Weaknesses and threats:


First of all the company has to reduce its weaknesses and then move on
to the threats .There are some suggestions or some positive or negative to
reduce the burden of weaknesses and threats. These ideas or
suggestions are

First the company has to create a brand and then focus on it

by advertise more and more to get the best positioning level in the minds
of the general public. If company create a strong brand image then it is
very easy to remove the weak point

Second things are threats that our competitors are strong. They have
strong brand image. The company has to make the Quality level, Design,
Packaging, and label of Elegant shoes same like its competitors. We do
not mean to same like that but there will be a slight difference. Such like
the design of shoes have a very light difference, Packaging is of same
color, and label is with the same text type.
