Beijing will be a raising city with raising economy in the future. There are many long term possibilities abroad. This will be an opportunity for Reiss to meet its objectives.
    Review of what has been going well
    The middle class is growing but also the spending power is growing. So people have more money to spend. But is it’s important to know, are they able to pay Reiss’ product for more than one time?
    Not only the extreme rich have money to buy clothes that provide more than just the basic need, warmth. The middle class are able to afford Reiss clothes and this group will expand. Reiss has the possibility, knowledge and the resources to take its share of this new and growing market
    With the strategy joint venture > Franchise
    What has been going badly, in need of attention?
    The fast growing market of Beijing should stay under constant survaillants. The economy is growing really quick.

  • 39. Preliminary market objectives
    Profits forecast and sensitivity analysis
    The Chinese market is evolving faster than the UK market.
    Competitive stance and competitive advantage
    The current market is people who are not aware of the brand Reiss. Reiss has to excel out of the others. By introducing the brand, it will attract the early adapters.
    The competitive advantage is being an exclusive brand from the UK, unique brand because it is the first Reiss store in Beijing. This is attractive for early adapters.
  • 40. The positioning statement: Focus on target market
    Reiss’ fashion is for young active and middle aged in China, focused in Beijing.
    This target group wants/needs to spend more time, money on their appearance, the middle class is growing, so there is more money to spend.
    The clothing piece (fashion) is a luxury good, a must have for every young professional.
    That provides individual, stylishand sexy properties and shows your career success.
    Product by Kotler
    The possible competitors for Reiss are: Levi’s, Louis Vuitton, Zara, Calvin Klein, Polo Ralph Lauren
  • 41. Marketing and competitive strategy and the competitive stance
    Competitive targets and prioritiesexcel in all the other competitors. Being unique.
    Type of strategyFirst 18 months: Start 3 joint venture stores with a local partner. Adapt the experience shop to the market of China
    Next 18 months: go on with 6 franchising stores, sell the concept of the adapted experience shops to franchisees.
    Issues of differentiation/ competitive stance:
    The big idea:Show that you are successful by fashionable and luxury clothes
    Breakpoint thinking Inventing a new market: dress for the moment – for every occasion a new Reiss piece
    Marketing actions:Chinese Celebrity as the new face. Fashion showsBig store opening
    3 things that would make a difference:
    #1: Work together with Booshing
    #2: Strategy: Start an experience shop to develop new target group
    #3:Collaboration with a Chinese celebrity for campaign on long term to stay in the market
    • Gong Li, worlds famous Chinese movie star (crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon)

    The bases for differentiation and competitive advantages:
    strong branding, being unique
    Leveraging assets and strategy
    The delivery of greater value: when the brand is familiar with the market group, China can expand to more stores.
    Competitive advantage, selling proposition and brand values
  • 43. Budgets
    Franchise contract
    The franchise will be a hard franchise to keep control over the brand. This means that:
    The initial fee of £ 50.000
    Royalties of 5% of the gross revenue
    Marketing fee of 10% of the gross revenue.
    • The share of the joint venture 52% to the Chinese partner and 48% for Reiss.
    • 44. 25% increase of sales means £ 5.220.750.
    • 45. UK stores make £ 20.000.000 in sales with 25 stores. This is £ 800.000 per store. The assumption is that the joint venture and franchise stores will run up to 20% in the first year, 50% in de second, 90% in the third and 100% after this period.
    • 46. Joint venture opens 3 stores in the first year.
    • 47. The franchise opens 6 stores after 18 months.
    Risk management
    • The Chinese Yuan will rise in comparison to the UK Pound because of the growing economy of China and that the Chinese government has kept the Yuan low.
    • 48. This trend will be combined with 50% hedging of the money earned in China. Funds will be transferred to the UK when the currency is high for the Yuan so Reiss gets more Pounds. To apply risk management, the other 50% will be transferred every quarter.
    • 49. More risk management contains factoring by an UK bank from the franchise companies. This is done because Reiss gets the receivables right away and is able to reinvest and focus on their core competence, fashion. An irrevocable letter of credit will be used for transactions. The Chinese partner will make sure all the paperwork is correct with the bank.
    • An investment of £ 2.5 million is needed per store.
    • 50. A combined £ 7.5 million investment.
    • 51. £ 7.5 mil/100% X 48% = 3.6 million
    for 3 stores in Beijing.
    • This investment covers promotional activities, store costs, store development, franchise developments and overhead.
  • Review
    Are the objectives reachable?
    25% increase of international sales, £ 5.220.750
    The joint venturewill generate £ 6 million in sales revenues the first three years. This is reachable because Reiss will not enter a red ocean with killing competition but a blue ocean where market share is available with the growing middle class.
    Have al stores up and running in four years.
    The marketing idea of showing your career will make sure that Reiss sticks out in the market overflowing with people who have more money than ever before. The farmers have found a better paying job and have the culture of showing your money.
    3% of the urban core (550.000 people)
    This culture of showing what you have is an important assumption for Reiss. This is the basis of the marketing plan and essential for the success of the 9 stores. The cultures needs to be open for the UK clothes and Reiss needs to be open to adapt the clothes to the culture. The profit will be generated by meeting in the middle.
  • 52. Action Plan

    and specialized website
    (Part 25%)

  • 53. Implementation and control
    • The three concept stores will be managed by a UK manager and a Chinese manager to convert the UK style to a more local concept. Adapting the UK experience store concept to the Chinese shopping culture.
    • 54. A local partner will do market research to provide valuable information for the adaption process. Which clothing lines work and which not?
    • 55. Actively creating a Chinese business network for potential franchise partners and to avoid problems with corrupt authorities. Increase market coverage by using the established network to franchise.
    • 56. Creating strong guidelines for franchise shops to market the brand name Reiss. Reiss will control 90% of the stores products price and design.
    • 57. To increase efficiency, standardization of the concept will be used for the franchisers.
    All these things combined give Reiss high control.
