I had invented this product for a marketing class during Fall semester 2006. I was the leader of the group and proposed the idea for marketing class. I devised the mission statement and all the implementations.
Our objectives are providing a product that meets customer expectations, as well as to maximize our profits. We plan on selling 100,000 baste masters in the first year of production. We would like to provide you, the consumer, with the highest quality and the most advanced technology in barbeque basting. We shoot to give $75,000 to charity.
We will be marketing the BBQ Baste Master to the everyday user or the avid griller. Once we gain product awareness, we will sell the product to a high end kitchenware stores such as Kitchen aid or Crate and Barrel.
Our product is a assembly line product. In the beginning, we look to go to home and barbeque shows. We will also throw barbeque parties, much like pampered chef. We will pitch the item to the attendants. At the barbeque or grill shows, we will supply the top chefs with the product to test and give feedback to future customers. In the first year or two this is our strategy, we want to gain a product and brand awareness before trying to sell to a grocery or home goods store.
After we have gained customers and brand awareness, we plan to supply the product to home goods stores or grocery store. We will be producing the product in a factory either in the states or in China and distribute the product from there. The product will be able to be made in a assembly or production line with few employees. This will allow for better profit maximization.
We will begin the sales for the BBQ Master at $14.99. We have estimated the manufacturing cost to be $4. This would give us a profit of $10.99. This does not include the money needed for travel and testing the product. If we succeed in selling 100,000 units, we will make $1.49 million. After we remove the product cost, our net income will be roughly $1.1 million.
Our personal selling techniques will be hosting BBQ parties to promote and permit people to test the product.
The Sales promotion will consist of a string of home shows and barbeque festivals throughout the country.
Give away several BBQ Masters at shows (especially barbeque festival), so the avid griller will be able to use it at the festival and alert the attendants how amazing the product really is.
Future goal would be to sponsor cook-offs or the barbeque festival.
