  6. 6. Increase the numberof clients/profit•  Bring new clients in the playground using events and strategic partnerships•  Expand the Gymboland brand exposure and ensure return of new clients through discount cards and special offers;•  New business - create a special parties package for corporations employees and their children andsell it as an HR advantage for the company - attract corporations in buting the package
  7. 7. Increase the numberof clients/profit•  Expansion through strategic partnerships in AFI Palace Cotroceni –  Make a cinema corner in the playground with a plasma TV that plays cartoons - kids stay longer in Gymboland, parents can go to movies and watch movies that are not suitable for children –  Movie day - partnership with Cinema City / 6D –  Sell the special cinema ticket for Gymboland along with regular movie tickets in Cinema City / 6D ticket booths
  8. 8. Create an attractive brand image•  Promote Pogonicii and Tontonel as real size Mascots•  After they gain notoriety (3-4 months), we start producing and selling collections of Pogonicii and Tontonel toys e.g. GymboFarm, GymboChristmas. The example is applied with notable succes by Mega Image (animal and pop singers stickers), Billa (animal stickers) Kinder (small toys), McDonalds (Happy Meals). We create a need to collect and generate loyalty towards the playground with lovable characters•  Make events that are visible outside the playground –  we have to gain the attention of outside potential clients. The usual ones leave their kids and come only if needed; they dont notice all our inside activities
  9. 9. Promote Gymboland more•  advertise events•  press releases for the media (blogs, magazines, website etc)•  Facebook – increase presence on pages for kids/mothers - increase fan base through email invitations (using the email database of our netprovider partner)•  Monthly promotions through AFIs newsletter
