The idea of energy drinks for women in Thailand is still a rather new subject. Yet with the risingtrend of healthy consumption in Thailand, women consumers are becoming more and more consciousabout what they consume. Healthier alternatives to coffee and other high calories and fattening energydrinks have becoming increasingly popular in the food industry, especially those that are new andunique. Therefore, to take advantage of this opportunity, our company would like to propose an idea ofGIRLZ, an innovative women’s sugar-free, fat-free energy drink, promising a boost that would not workagainst women’s body in the long run. With light fruity flavors, GIRLZ provide a relaxing feeling that stillallows women to get that much boost without the jittery feeling that is commonly associated withtraditional energy drinks. The purpose of this project is to develop a comprehensive business plan for GIRLZ, a healthyenergy drink for women, and assess the opportunity of it in the market though the use of qualitative andquantitative surveys and relevant data collection. The project will explore business opportunities by investigating our target customers’preferences, current market situation, and price of the products will also be determined through thedata collecting process. We also analyzed Thailand’s energy drinks market and its background, as well asevaluated the opportunities available in the market that may benefit our business.The final plan will ultimately determine whether the proposed business is viable in today’s market. 1|Page

  18. 18. 18GIRLZ Pricing StrategyThe survey results reveal that pricing does not have the effect on consuming decisions of energy drinkcustomers. Thirty-eight point six percent of the respondents see their favorite energy drink brandsuperior to others due to the flavor; where as 28.1% of them value the quality of the product. Since,GIRLZ is unique and of very high quality energy drink, the company will be able to employ the premiumpricing strategy. In what way does your favorite brand appear to be superior to other brands of the same category? Type of packaging Long-lasting Energy Instant Energy Rush Flavor Brand Advertisemnt Nutrition Value 0 5 10 15 20 25Premium pricing or prestige pricing is the strategy of consistently pricing at, or near, the high end of thepossible price range to reflect the exclusiveness of the product. Buyers of such products usually viewthem as luxuries and have little or no price sensitivity. The advantages of applying this strategy include: 18 | P a g e
  19. 19. 191. The consumers of GIRLZ will see the high price as an indication of good quality.2. The premium price charged for the uniqueness and quality of GIRLZ allows the company to generatelarge profit margins on each item sold.3. The premium price will also display GIRLZ’s commitment to quality, and the customers will think ofGIRLZ when they desire such exclusive superiority.In conclusion, GIRLZ will be charged at 19 baht per 100 mL bottle. This is the price for the opportunity toregain energy instantly without having side effects but receiving a natural look and feel that theconsumers cannot get from the other energy drinks. Moreover, 19 baht is the reasonable price forsugar-free, carbohydrate-free, and calorie-free energy drink that can burn calorie and revitalize the skin.In the future, GIRLZ aspires to change the pricing strategy into skim pricing strategy; reducing the pricewhen any direct competitors enter the market. However, GIRLZ will continue maintaining and improvingthe quality as well as the reputation of the first women energy drink in Thailand. 19 | P a g e

Promotional Strategies Advertising Since GIRLZ is a newly developed brand generally at the beginning phrase of the market, our main aim on is to start extensive advertising of our products, in addition to our brand name. This is so as to generate maximum awareness and knowledge of the general public, and attract the target customer the hopefully gain adequate and sufficient market share. To new brand like GIRLZ, customers’ exposure to advertising is key. One way to amplify communication impact to the public is to advertise GIRLZ television commercials through free TV channels. However, since GIRLZ is targeting at a niche market, we saw that it is vital to air the commercials on overplay female oriented channel and programs. Other than television commercials, we also intend to advertise our brand and product outdoor, especially on transit advertising. To match Advertising on BTS our target busy dynamic lifestyles with the advertising execution, advertising on the BTS, MRT, and bus stops is considered potentially effective. Moreover, targets in schools and colleges would be exposed to print advertising, including posters and billboards of GIRLZ around the campus. Apart from that, magazine ads are effective in reaching the target of the particular demographics. GIRLZ ads will be placed on women’s magazines such as Elle, Cleo, and Di-Chan. 21 | P a g e
  22. 22. 22These magazines particularly a very specific readership based on factors including interests, age,and female gender. By leveraging readership demographics, it is directly ensure that the message isbeing seen by the right audience. In addition to raising awareness; magazine ads educate readersabout the product, create interest, and eventually enhance purchase. Another cost effective strategy to advertise our product is through online advertising. GIRLZofficial site should be established as well as a fan page on social networking sites such as facebookand twitter, in which provide a space for potential and interested customers to do their research,receive news, and exchange GIRLZ FACEBOOK PAGEopinions.

Not only this will increase awareness of the product, but if the product were to gainrecognition, the organization or the brand GIRLZ will be able to take advantage of this in all itspromotional campaigns, adding force to its reputation and image.

  23. 23. 23confidence and pride in our staff. Communicating such achievements often gives customers afeeling that they can rely on the product, and this builds strong customer loyalty. Other than tradeshows, GIRLZ also has a mission is to raise awareness and funds for BreastCancer and Ovarian Cancer research and prevention through organizing special events, whilesupplying networking opportunities for those in need to learn more about these deadly cancers andget help through our partners.

  24. 24. 24Public Relations The need for public relations in today’s business is growing at a fast pace. Plus, recognizing thatGIRLZ is relatively new to the market, there will be a need to organize an event, to introduce thebrand to the market.
