Goals and Challenges Generate more site traffic and internet ordering. Using a successful Google Ad words campaign. Penetrate the college food market. Continue to be interactive with out customers through social media. Discounts and giveaways to active customers on social media sites. Encouraging feedback on how to better our business and to see what our customer wants to see. Improve our presence on Foursquare. Challenges: High competition from other pizza places around college campuses. Seasonality of our market. Sales might slow down over the summer with less kids on campus. Lack of a presence with location based applications. Foursquare could be a great asset for us, if used correctly.
Papa John’s Theme To market to college students through social media and location based applications on smart phones. We feel we can penetrate this market because we offer a good tasting product at an affordable price, which is what all college students look for. We also feel we have a great presence on social media and that fits perfect with the college market we are targeting.

Budget and Timeline Budget: I propose a budget of $50,000. This will be spent of buying keywords for our Ad words campaign then paying for the clicks we receive. The next portion will be spent on promoting our Foursquare and other discounts and coupons we plan to give out and run. The rest will be spent on the coupons themselves and the other giveaways that we will give out through our social media interactions and sweepstakes. Timeline: I would suggest pulsing advertising Our market will be seasonal, with August through December being busy, then downtime at the beginning of January, Then busy from End of January through May, Then the summer months will slow down with the majority of college kids going home for the summer.
