Coffee Shop and Microblog Marketing

...SOMETHING ABOUT MICROBLOG MARKETING LET’S STRAT FROM NO.100 COFFEE STORE On the way to No.100 coffee store,I felt excited and nervous.That was the second time I visited there.I knew this coffee store through the sina microblog. Several days ago,I logged on my account then a new fan jumped out, named “No.100 coffee”. According to its marketing style I guessed it must be operated by a young guy who is creative and wants to do something special. However, something interesting appeared in the later concern. No.100 is located at Wudadao Sightseeing Street district, where is filled with historical and cultural atmosphere. Around the coffee store, the old-fashioned European buildings perfectly set the movie scene of a typical street-side coffee bar in Europe. Slowly step into the No.100, you can see the simple but cozy decoration, the soft fabric sofas in the living room, and the traditional Chinese tea set on the desk, and there is a large cabinet of personal collections from the shareholders’ donation. Besides, there is a wall displaying the colorful postcards sent by customers from all over the world. All these tiny details make this little coffee store more like a warm family house rather than a fancy bar. After walking around the rooms I chose a sofa by the window in the living room. Because I had visited here a few days ago and had a chat with the waiters, they remembered me and knew why I was here for the second time.......

...London as a destination during the Games period, namely through perceptions of over-crowding and over-pricing of hotels. Forecasts of a positive effect on British tourism are more positive than Games-time estimates, with the DCMS estimating that 80% of (economic) legacy benefits derived from hosting the Games will be gained through increases in post-Games tourism. This is attributed in part to the massive international media exposure afforded to London as a result of their hosting the Games. However, the Tourism Alliance believe that such legacy goals will not be achieved unless the DCMS are prepared to invest in adequate marketing and media support for the British tourism industry. In turn, the Secretary of State cited a need for the tourism industry to “...improve the consistency of its quality, raise the level of skill and, through imaginative marketing, showcase Britain’s heritage and its dynamic, 21st century cities”. One cannot guarantee the economic legacy afforded to the British tourism industry as a result of hosting the Games. A study by the European Case Study London 2012 and the Displacement Effect WOMENS PARTICIPATION IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES Case Study London 2012 and the Displacement Effect WOMENS PARTICIPATION IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES Tour Operators Association found that hosting the Olympics did not have a positive effect on tourism in either Greece or Sydney.

Starbucks Coffee Marketing

...no. 1-0023 Starbucks Coffee Company* On an overcast February afternoon in 2000, Starbucks CEO Orin Smith gazed out of his office window in Seattle and contemplated what had just occurred at his company’s annual shareholder meeting. In prior years, the meeting had always been a fun, all-day affair where shareholders from around the country gathered to celebrate the company’s success. This year, however, Smith and other senior Starbucks executives heard an earful from the activist group Global Exchange. A human rights organization dedicated to promoting environmental, political, and social justice around the world, Global Exchange criticized Starbucks for profiting at the farmer’s expense by paying low prices and not buying “fair trade” beans. Not only did the activists disrupt the company’s annual meeting to the point that the convention hall security police asked the activists to leave, but they also threatened a national boycott if the company refused to sell and promote fair trade coffee. Although Smith strongly disagreed with using the shareholders meeting as a public forum, he knew there was a strong likelihood his company could face serious reprisals if it did not address the issues raised by Global Exchange. Fair trade began after World War II as religiously–affiliated, non-profit organizations purchased handmade products for resale from European producers. During the 1970s and 1980s, the concept evolved further into buying crafts from low-income, third-world......

Marketing Plan: a Perfect Cup of Coffee

...Marketing Plan: A Perfect Cup of Coffee Abstract The purpose of this paper is to show a complete marketing plan developed for A Perfect Cup of Coffee (PCC). The idea for A Perfect Cup of Coffee grew one winter morning in 2011 when my wife and I were discussing our dissatisfaction with the delivery times and prices for our online coffee services for our one cup coffee makers. We enjoyed the taste of the Tassimo coffee pods, but were dissatisfied with the delivery times, customer service and prices. We thought the customer service components of Keurig Company were top notch, but Keurig lacked the quality in their coffee pods as well as efficiency in their coffee systems. As owners of one cup coffee makers for both companies for more than a year, we thought we could create a company that could have tremendous online customer service as well as have the depth and quality of coffee to surpass the industry leaders. 1.0 State your marketing objectives. • Increase brand awareness among our target audience by 30 percent this year through an advertising campaign in magazines and online. • Increase new customers from month to month. • Maintain a high standard of coffee and customer service. • After six months, continue to increase new customers and sales while maintaining or decreasing marketing expenses. • Maintain a positive and steady growth each quarter. • Increase our market share by 10% this year. • Enter into the overseas market, Finland specifically, 12 months...
