Things that include in market analysis are for example, target market, market size, competition, market share, sale forecast, and marketing strategy.

TARGET MARKET To ensure that marketing effort fulfil customers‟ needs and wants as well as bring profits, we have taken steps to identify and focus our effort on a selected group of customers. This is to ensure that the marketing efforts taken are within our scope and capabilities of our business. Target market is defined as the group of customers with needs and wants that can be satisfied by business through supply goods and services. With a clearly defined target audience, it is much easier to determine where and how to market our company. After much discussions and planning, we have a specific target market. That being said, it doesn‟t mean we only focus on this group of people and ignore others that are not in our target market, as the other group is our secondary market and could also bring income to our business. We have segmented our market based on these three factors, which are geographic, demographic, and psychographic. Market segmentation is the technique that we apply in order to identify our market which greatly helps in deciding our target market, finally our business in a long run. It involves the process of defining and subdividing a large homogenousmarket into clearly identifiable segments having similar needs, wants, or demandcharacteristics. Its objective is to design a marketing mix that precisely matches the expectations of customers in the targeted segment. This is because, mistakes in market segmenting may cause business to lose sales.
  48. 48. • Demographic Segmentation Demographic segmentation consists of dividing the market into groups based on variables such as age, gender, income, occupations, and health conditions. Our company is located at the town where the people or customers came from different background or lifestyle. This type of segmentation helps us to identify the trend that might shape future spending patterns in the target market. There are a few characteristics of population that has been identified as our target market. They have different background of education, income, social class and occupation. This is because the Bangsar area is considered as a big town. The people are from all level of incomes. • Psychographic Segmentation Psychographic segmentation divides the market into groups according to customer‟s lifestyle. Activities, interests, and opinions (AIO) surveys are one tool for measuring lifestyle. It considers a number of potential influences on buying behavior, including the attitudes, expectations and activities of consumers. From our research, we identified that our target market is people that come from all level of incomes from both genders. As we know, we are competing with other companies and shops in producing bahulu. So, our services are different from others. These differences can attract customers to come to our company, besides the fact that our product is a very new and unique product. Because of this reason, we have decided to use only the best qualities of bahulu and other raw materials. Plus, we also provide the best services at reasonable prices. All these are important to ensure that our customers are satisfy with our services. • Behavioural Segmentation Behavioral segmentation use the unique relationship you have with your customers to have a very personal conversation. In this segmentation, our target market are those who want to held any type of events such as wedding or occasional events like Hari Raya and Chinese New Year. The demand for bahuluduring these occasional events normally will increase. During weekend or school holidays, there are many wedding events being held and this gives us opportunity to sell our product. Our service includes goodie bags that contain many types of bahulu. Besides that, at least one day in a week our target would make other types of events such as birthday party and sometimes once in a year would make annual party. So, there will be an increase in demand for bahulu with variety of flavors.

The target market for our business is targeted to all types of people that have different backgrounds of educations, income, social-class, occupation and races. Our main business is located in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. The population in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur is 120,000.The price per product to be offered is depending on the quantity of cakes per packet from the variety of flavours. Product Selling Price: Type of Bahulu i) Regular (original) = Fixed cost +Variable cost + Mark up = RM0.20 + RM0.80 + RM1.20 = RM2.20 ii) Regular (Fillings) = Fixed cost + Variable Cost + Mark up = RM0.30 + RM0.80 + RM 1.20 = RM2.30 iii) HujanPanas = Fixed cost + Variable Cost + Mark up = RM0.40 + RM0.80 + RM 1.20 = RM2.40 Total customer per year = 45,000 Estimate Demand = 40,000 Target Market = 40,000 Market Share = 10%

  52. 52. 3.4 COMPETITION Basically, competitors often defined as other firms or independent entities that offer similar services or goods in the marketplace. Knowing the competitors and what they are offering is very significant in setting up a new business. It will trigger us enhance our products, services and marketing. Other than that, it will allow us to set our prices competitively and help us to respond to rival marketing campaigns with our own initiatives and efforts. Currently there are a lot of bahulu shops existed in the surrounding marketplace which means a lot of rivals existed. In business, a company in the same industry or a similar industry which offers a similar product or service is assumed to be the competitor. As an entrepreneur, competition is positive way for our company to improve the business that will help us to stay on focus of our business. We can also identify the strengths and weaknesses of our services. The presence of one or more competitors can reduce the prices of goods and services as the companies attempt to gain a larger market share as it tries to attract more customers. Competition also requires companies to become more efficient in order to reduce costs and other expenditures. The competition analysis is important because it helps us to understand more on the competition and thus help us to prepare a blueprint for a strategic business plan. Based on our research, we knew that every competitor has their own strengths and weaknesses. So, we have engraved more in order to move a step ahead in order to compete with both new entrants to our market and current competitors. Therefore, we will create marketing strategies that take advantages of our competitors' weaknesses, and improve our own business performance. Assessing the threats posed by the competitors is important in order to manage our business successfully.

  61. 61. 3.4 MARKETING STRATEGY A business marketing strategy is the single biggest factor which determines the success or failure of once business. Marketing strategy is a business's marketing policy, usually outlined in a formal marketing plan. The marketing strategy usually meshes with the company's corporate image and product brands. Marketing tactics are some of the activities that carry out the marketing strategy. Each promotion tool has unique characteristics and costs. Marketing strategies are generally concerned with marketing mix principles, also known as the 4 Ps. It is used by business to assist in pursuing the business‟s objectives. The 4 Ps in marketing strategy are: i. Product strategy ii. Price strategy iii. Place or distribution strategy iv. Promotion strategy 1. Product/Services Strategy Brand Our product named Bahulu‟s House which may refer to an informal manufacture which offering traditional cake in modern way and made-to-order food. Just by recognize our brand, obviously people may know what we are going to serve for them when they come to our manufacture. In addition, our brand motto „ Experiencedcolourful feelings here‟ is an attraction because it will make people wondering what the difference between our bahulu and other bahulu in market. Otherwise, we also supply our product to occasional event, party, wedding ceremony and some certain supermarket when have a demand. Quality Quality of a product can be a major positioning tool for a business. We can convince our customer due to our quality of product by maintaining the taste. For example, the taste of the „BahuluHujanPanas‟ and the regular one will keep maintain and sustain whenever customer want. Nowadays we know that some supplier could be bias by cheating the customer on the quality of the ingredients being used. By using low
  62. 62. quality ingredients which is cheaper than high quality ingredients and sell the product with unreasonable price in order just to gain more profit but forgot the quality of product. So our company has held a loyalty to customer by not cheating them and takes any advantages by using high quality ingredients at reasonable price. Other than that, for supplying we used effectiveness alternative by using machine to produce our product instead of hiring some employee. From that, our customer‟s demand cannot be delay and punctually be on time. Design Product design or service package plays an important role in satisfying and delighting the target market. Our product can be classify as a food businesses and more related to service to the customer. In fact, we also supply our products to demander especially for occasional event on Hari Raya, wedding ceremony and party. Our company have been trained to respect customer and set in mind that customer is always right. So we handle all the order with care to keep it from damage because we are supplying cakes which is in soft texture. Other than that, we also provide packaging cakes for wedding ceremony which is usually make as a gift to the guest when there has any request. This can be called as a one package instead of us supplies the bahulu. Packaging Protection The primary function of packaging is to protect the product during the process of transportation, storage, display and sales until the product is ready for use. Since our products is going to be supply to certain supermarket, occasional events, wedding ceremony and party, protection is one of the important thing to handle our product. So we choose transparent plastics as our packager. In addition, it is easiest way for the customer to see and satisfy when they wanted to buy our products. Product differentiation As we know in market, each product has their own identities and specialties to attract customers. Include of their packaging and tasting. Same goes with our product. Since our product is bahulu, we know that all customers from other races in Malaysia can eat and accept our products because it is a
  63. 63. typical cake but what we concerned is the quality of our products. Good packaging has the power to create instant recognition of the product. For the packaging, we have our own sticker that contain our company details such as address, contact number, e-mail, logo and halal certificate. Attractive to customer The packaging of the product may be the sellers‟ final chance to influence customers. The main packaging we used a high quality plastic (Low Density Polyethylene). It is to make sure the quality of the products are in good condition and can be stored for a long period of time and can prevent bahulu from get eaten by insects. We also used plastic container with lids and disposable food container to maintain the quality of bahulu. Besides, for the request from customer for gifts or special occasions, we used colorful and variety design of paper bags or goodie bags for the packaging. This is our strategy to attract customers‟ attention. Labelling Labelling performs several functions such as identifying, grading, describing or even promoting the product. Label is one of the important thing that consumer have to take attention. Eventually, our product is classified as a food, so we must put the expiring date as guidance to consumer from eating a damage food that would be a food poisoning to consumer. In addition, we also put all the ingredients and content label at the package to ensure customers about the healthiest of our product which not be made from artificial ingredients. It is safe for the children to eat our products. The more important thing is the „halal‟ logo that certificate from JAKIM which is can convince the consumer especially Muslim to purchase our products. This is to ensure all the ingredients that we are used is from food standardization and not made from non-halal ingredients that could be make sensitivity of Muslim consumer. After sale services Since our products is bahulu, the market sale is consistent because its food and usually ate by all customer from any races and ages. Our bahulu can serve as
  64. 64. alternative food for tea time, supper and especially for people that do not have enough time for breakfast. This shows that our product is useful during urgent time and they need on-the-spot breakfast. Based on our market sale, usually demand is higher when it comes to occasional day such as „Hari Raya’. For Muslim who is busy they often make a last minute preparation. So, they only buy instant food such as bahulu. Therefore, we provide many flavors to make varieties for customers. 2. Price strategy The definite meaning of the price of a product or service is the amount of money charged to the customer for a particular purchase. Our financial objectives when talking about price will be coined on how much money we intend to make from a product, how much we can sell, and what market share will get in relation to competitors. Objectives such as these and how a business generates profit in comparison to the cost of production need to be taken into account when selecting the right pricing strategy. There are several pricing strategies, namely, cost based pricing, value based pricing, and competition based pricing. Each one of these has their own pros and cons based on the product or service offered itself. For our company, we have decided to imply the cost based pricing strategy. Cost-based Pricing Cost based pricing is the simplest and most commonly used pricing strategy. Costbased pricing is based on the total cost of the product or service plus a standard mark-up. This involves setting a price by adding a fixed amount or percentage to the cost of making or buying the product. In some ways this is quite an old-fashioned and somewhat discredited pricing strategy, but like being stated above, it is still widely used. This is also one the factor why we chose this pricing strategy for our product, the most simplest but reliable and popular used even by big companies worldwide. The mark-up is the profit margin that is desired from the sale of the product. The decision on the percentage mark-up is made based on certain factors. Firstly, we have to know the average profit margin in the industry for our product. For example, for our product which is a food product, the margin for food business is not less than 35% of the selling price. Secondly, we have to take into account the number and strength of competitors in the same area or same industry. For example, for our company, since we are competing with only two other competitors, even our company is a new company or the newcomer in the area, we may not have to reduce our price. Thus, how high should the mark-up of our product percentage be? That
  65. 65. largely depends on the normal competitive practice in a market and also whether the resulting price is acceptable to customers. An example of cost-based pricing, where a business wishes to ensure that it makes an additional profit on top of the unit cost of production is illustrated below: Unit cost RM100 Mark-up 50% Selling price RM150 Cost-based pricing is often used as a guide in pricing. The offering price is vice versa, may be lower or higher. This is also the result of other factors such as customers willingness to pay for the product or service, pressures other competitors, and the supply and demand factor. However the lowest price of our product is determined by the unit cost of the product. We have taken into consideration if the price lowers than the cost per unit will result in a loss for our company. We also chose this pricing strategy to utilize this strategy intelligently to penetrate the market. Besides that, we also confident that sales of our products can cover loss on the sales of the particular product. Other factors that can contribute to the pricing include economic conditions, government regulations, social concerns, and consumer groups. The main advantage of cost-based pricing is that selling prices are relatively easy to calculate. If the mark-up percentage is applied consistently across product ranges, then the business can also predict more reliably what the overall profit margin will be. Some other advantages of the cost based pricing are in term of flexibility whereby we can add a different percentage to different product lines. Besides, if the costs of our product go up, it is easy to adjust the prices thus reducing the loss in a long run plus it is easy for our marketer to defend the pricing and last but not least it can suit a manufacturer with scalable production based on demand. However, there are also disadvantages to this pricing strategy. Among the disadvantages are it ignores product demand or the influence price may have on demand and also what other competitors are doing with their pricing. Furthermore, the most obvious disadvantage of this strategy is if the costs of our product increase, so must the price. The name of this pricing strategy is self-explanatory where it is
  66. 66. based on the cost of the product itself. That is why the cost of our product is directly proportional to the price of the product. Another approach that we have taken into consideration is the pricing tactic as different tactics can help us attract more customers and maximize our profits. First, discounting offering specially-reduced prices can be a powerful tool. This could be a clearance discount to sell old stock, a discount for making multiple purchases of the same or similar products, or we could offer bulk discounts to encourage larger orders. We thought that this tactic will enable us to make more profit through lower costs. Secondly, the odd value pricing or the psychological pricing. Using the tactic of selling products for RM 9.99 instead of RM10 can be useful if price is an essential part of customers buying decisions. Some customers perceive odd value prices like this as being more attractive. Another tactic is the loss leader. This involves selling a product at a low or even loss-making price. Although we may not make a profit selling this product, we could attract customers who will also buy other, more profitable products. . Next, the penetration.This tactic starts at a low price and gaining market share before competitors catch up. Once we have a loyal customer base, we should be able to find ways to raise prices later. This tactic seems very convenient to our company as we are trying to penetrate the market as a new company. Lastly, the tactic of raising or lowering prices. We are well aware that there will be times when we need to change our prices. There are two key questions we will try to answer. First, what effect will the price change have on the volume of sales, and second, what will the effect be on the profit per sale? When we Increase the prices, we can improve our profitability even though our sales volume may drop. If we are increasing our prices, we will always explain to our customers why we are doing it. We can use the price change as an opportunity to re-emphasize the benefits we offer. There are also ways that we can hide price increases. For example, we might introduce new, higher-priced products or services and make older, cheaper ones obsolete lower the specification and our costs while maintaining the same price but we will be aware that hiding price increases can risk adverse reactions from our customers if they realize what we are doing. In contrast, the reducing prices, we know that we should never take the decision to lower prices lightly. Low prices often go hand-in-hand with poor-quality service. This is not the image we want to create for our business?
  67. 67. 3. Distribution Strategy For product-focused companies, establishing the most appropriate distribution strategies is a major key to success, defined as maximizing sales and profits. Place represents the location where a product can be purchased. It is often referred as the distribution channel. It includes any physical store as well as virtual stores on the Internet. Distribution strategy is aimed at establishing a structured and controllable distribution system to ensure the smoothness of transferring the products to its target customers. As we are manufacturing and selling our products on our own without any intermediaries, it can be considered that our distribution channel is from manufactured to consumer after distributed to the wholesalers and retailers. Our strategies are involved in many areas which are through the wholesalers then being distributed to the retailers like grocery shops in one housing area and finally being distributed directly to the customers. Manufacturer customer 1. Direct to consumer First, we sell and manufactured our products which are bahuludirectly to the consumer which are the one who pays to consume the goods and services produced for satisfy their needs and wants. When we directly sell to the consumer, there has no intermediary level and there are not involved the retailers and the wholesalers. Even the consumers will having their own choice and may choose all varieties in flavor besides, buying in large numbers of item that we had provided. By dealing directly with consumers, manufacturers are able to remain in business. We choose this type of distribution because we are providing fresh and clean food every day to satisfy everyone‟s needs and wants. . Manufacturer retailer customer 2. Selling through retailers Apart from that, we had manufactured our bahulu to the one intermediary level, the retailers which are a business or person that sells goods to the consumer, as opposed to a wholesaler or supplier, who normally sell their goods to another business so that we can achieve the aim of expanding the coverage, increasing the exposure, capturing the market and boosting the brand-name of its merchandise within a relatively short time. They act as an intermediary link between the manufacturers and the consumers of goods. But, the selection of the number and location of retailers depend on the coverage area intended by our manufacturer,
  68. 68. Bahulu‟s House Enterprise. Even, we can have discovering and grasping real market demand when dealing with the retailers. So, as the good strategy we had discover the retailers in all main area in Malaysia so that the consumers in all area can know our products through the retailers who sell our bahulu with buying our product when going to the retailer‟s shops. So, our brand product will be having the good feedbacks from Malaysian food market. Manufacturer wholesaler customer 3. Selling through wholesalers Apart from that, we had prefer to sell our bahulu to wholesalers as the middlemen who operates between the producers (from whom they purchase goods) and the retailers (to whom they sell goods) as well as referring to any individual or business firm selling goods in relatively large quantities to retailers other than consumers. Besides, a wholesaler takes charge of goods from a manufacturer, usually in very large amounts, and in turn sells them to retail establishments at a marked up price. Even, through their scale of operation, contacts, experiences and specialization, wholesalers offer manufacturers more than what the manufacturers can achieve on their own. So, we had selling our products through the wholesalers like the big super market such as Mydin, Tesco, Econsave and Jaya Jusco. In case, they will help to reduce the amount of efforts required by the manufacturer in distributing his product to the final consumers and provide vast market coverage to his products. Apart from that, to promote our brand product they act as a communication channel by providing information about the products to the consumers, on one hand, and the consumer feedback to the Bahulu‟ House on the other hand. More importantly, by dealing with the wholesalers they have better financial resources than manufactured directly to the consumers and dealing with retailers. Apart from that, our Bahulu‟s House brand can be well-known in our Malaysian food market with the help of wholesalers, help in perform advertising and sales promotion activities and also employ expert sales representatives for the purpose.
  69. 69. 4. Promotion Strategy Promotion represents all of the communications that a marketer may use in the marketplace. Promotion has four distinct elements: advertising, public relations, personal selling and sales promotion. A certain amount of crossover occurs when promotion uses the four principal elements together, which is common in film promotion. 1) Advertising i. Newspapers/magazines This is one of our promotion strategies in introducing our company. Newspaper is a part of medium in transferring information to the residents in our marketplace. So, we will advertise our product including our company‟s contact details. However, in order to minimize the cost, we will choose the hot selling newspaper and magazines in the residential area. It also will reduce the waste of advertising useless promotions. ii. Lower Price and Discount Besides that, our company will give the best price to our customer and give free extra bahulu to our customers that buy more than certain quantities. iii. Signboards and banners
  70. 70. Signboard is the way we introduce our company especially for our premises. It is because, we will locate the signboard directly in front of our building so that when people pass by, they will know where we are and what services and products we are producing. We will design and locate our banners at the main locations where people always come or pass by for example is, at junctions of the roads, terminal bus, universities or colleges, and so on. The total of the banners is around five depends on how much place we will locate them. These two medium of advertising will not be a problem to our company especially for cost. It is because, we are producing these products and we just need to pay for the raw materials of producing them. iv. Sticker One of the ways to introduce our company and make our customers keep informed about our products and services is by using sticker on every packaging. The information provided includes: a. Name of the company b. Address of the company c. Phone numbers - office and staffs d. Company‟s logo e. Company‟s e-mail v. Website
  71. 71. Other alternative that we will use is the website that has information about our company and products. In spite of that, we also will use social networking sites such as blog, facebook, twitter, and so on. Online selling is important as it is the easiest way to buy something so people can make orders by only access to the internet. In addition, people also easy to make any choices of flavor or colour of bahulu because they can see the picture. 2) Sales promotion This is a promotional activity or incentives carried out or offered within a set time frame to influence purchases. Our company sales promotions are: o Give discounts to regular customers o Give discounts for big purchases o Big discount once a year o Give free extra bahulu to customer that purchased at certain quantity

So, it is important to make sure that the business is able to produce outputs that are enough to fulfil the expected market demand or sales. This can be achieved by having a good production planning. In production planning, the business will determine how much output to produce for a certain period of time such as in a day, a week or a month. Average sales forecast per month = RM 32, 017 Price per unit = RM 0.30 Number of output per month = RM 26,311 RM 0.30 = 106,723UNITS If the number of working days per month is 26 days, The amount of output to be produced per day is: = 106,723bahulu 26 days
  98. 98. = 4,104.7 4,105 bahulu per day 4.20 MANPOWER PLANNING Manpower Planning which is consisting of putting right number of people, right kind of people at the right place, right time, doing the right things for which they are suited for the achievement of goals of the organization. Therefore, manpower planning involves reviewing current manpower resources, forecasting future requirements and availability, and taking steps to ensure that the supply of people and skills meets demand. The production operation refers to the amount of output that can be produced within a specific time. Production planning is a method to calculate manpower requirement so that production demand based on sales forecast can be met. The sales forecast is 27,750 units of bahulu per month which is monthly production demand is 27,750. If working days per month are 26 days per month, the daily production rate is: 106,723 / 26 days = 4,105 bahulu per day The working hour per day is 12 hours. After deducting one hour to two hours of rest period and idling time the effective working hours per day is 9 hours. The hourly production rate is: 4,105 / 9 hours = 456 pieces of bahulu per hour One worker can produce about 432 piecesbahulu in 1 hour and then his hourly capacity is: 432/ 1 = 432 pieces bahulu per hour Therefore, the number of workers required is: Planned Rate of Production per hour Worker Productive Time per hour = 456 pieces of bahulu 432 capacity of worker = 1.05 1 workers ≈1 workers Thus, BAHULU‟S HOUSE needs one workers in mixing and baking area.
