There are a lot of advantages for doing so.

Marketing Mix Proposal

  1. Product The product’s name “Auntie Rookie’s Natural Panda Kayak” should be changed due to the culture there don’t understand what is “Panda” and “Kayak” and I find “Auntie Rosier” is nobody therefore it should be change. It should be changed to “Gardenia’s Coconut Jam” which it will suit the environment of Australia directly.
  2. Pricing The price strategy would be using the Market Penetration Strategy which is to sell it cheaper in the first three to five months and then raise the price to the normal price. I would suggest that the price that we should allocate in Australia is $2. 0 Susie Dollars for each coconut Jam and after that it should be raised back to $2. 5 Susie Dollars.
  3. Place/Distribution We would be having a distributor as middle men to sell to all the hypermarkets, mini markets and even groceries store. We are targeting Sydney as our targeted location to start with first.
  4. Promotion I would want to sell it with a promotion Just for the first month. By purchasing one “Gardenia’s Coconut Jam” we would free one more for the consumers. So it is a buy one free one promotion.

    This promotion will only valid for one month.
