Marketing Plan Objectives Pansies (2004) defines marketing as the process of planning and exacting the exchanges and satisfy organizational objectives. A sound marketing plan must have objectives that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. (SMART)

The following are some of the company objectives - ; To provide high quality products, which stand out from the competition ; Create an image of the brand that is reliable, safe and scientifically sound ; Produce ads that are catchy and lend credibility to the products ; Stimulate awareness of the brand over a 24 month period while maximizing profits Issues ; Incorporating faces and names that bring credibility to the band and its claims ; Establishing the most appropriate marketing channels and value networks ; Positioning the products as giving the most value for money spent and measuring the regress made Marketing Mix Strategy Marketing activities comes in all forms; Mac Scratchy classified these tools into four broad groups that he called the four As of marketing: product, price, place and promotion". Kettle et al (2009 peg 23)" The Following diagram Fig. 3 shows illustrates the 'Four P component of the marketing mix. Marketing Matrix Place Channels Coverage Assortments Locations Inventory Transport Product Product variety Quality Design Features Brand name Packaging Sizes Services Warranties Returns Target Market Promotion Sales promotion Advertising Public relations Direct marketing Prices List price Discounts Allowances Payment period Credit terms Source, Kettle et al. (2013) The positioning of the company is based on the fact that the both products use a natural aphrodisiac that is known to be powerful.

It is natural and the perception in the mind of the consumer is that it is a more easily available and mass produced version of a natural remedy that has been already proven. Product Bois Banded stimulates sexual impulses, thus enhancing sexual desire, it also increases the intensity of orgasms and delays ejaculation. Our product by volume as a higher concentration of the active ingredient, Bois Banded, (MGM) than any other product on the market and substantiates this claim on the label in the 'Nutritional Facts', which is a big part of our marketing scheme, since our competitors have avoided revealing their concentrations at all costs. The wine itself has an alcohol content of 14% by volume, and can be consumed as a compliment to lunch or dinner so that it appeals to people who do not go to bars as well.

The packaging is attractive and features a picture of the actual bark of the plant suggestively placed in the hands of an attractive woman. It has a robust taste which places it above its competitors. The product comes in two sizes, 750 ml and mall, ideal for both individual consumption and for home use over time. Bois Banded tea, is made from the leaves of the plant and contains elements that help with blood purification in addition to the aphrodisiac function. The box and packets display the plant in a forested setting to portray the natural element of the product. Price I intend to use the Maximum Current Profit objective. Based on the prices of the competition, I can afford to add a 20% mark up to the products cost that customers ill be willing to pay.

The aim is to put Bois Banded wine in every bar and every liquor section of every grocery in the country. While department stores and parlors are among the retailers for the product, the volume of daily traffic in popular groceries will help to increase awareness of my brand once it is properly displayed. The mall bottles of Bois Banded wine are placed in large bins, similar to the ones used by Red Bull. The Bois Banded tea can be found everywhere that tea is sold, from convenience stores to large "Other than target market and advertising, promotional activities are also critical actors for business performance" (Craig et al 1997) Singers, television personalities and local athletes are among some of the brand ambassadors for Bois Banded wine.

The TV ads feature a real life doctor highlighting the benefits of the product while the newspaper ads and billboards feature sexy women in revealing attire. Free sampling and other giveaways are some of the promotional activities that will boost customer awareness. Positioning Strategies Positioning involves implanting the brands unique benefits and differentiation in the customers mind (Kettle and Armstrong 2004 page 259). The positioning of the many is based on the fact that both products use a natural aphrodisiac that is known to be powerful. It is natural and the perception in the mind of the consumer is that it is a more easily available and mass produced version of a natural remedy that has been already proven to work.

Celebrity endorsement in radio and television ads is the fastest way to draw attention to the product and will be used along with product sampling drives to increase customer awareness. In addition, we will have real life doctors in our advertising campaign that will lend to our authenticity as well as flyers promoting the said benefits. The aim is to establish in the mind of our consumer that our product works to increase market share. The initial price will contain a 20% markup that will set the product in the price range of its competitors. After the first 24 months, the price will be reviewed to reflect a projected increase in demand and allow for profit minimization.

The price, promotion, place and product all work together to send a message to the customer that the brand is reputable and legitimate, in an industry that is questionable. Consumers will attach trustworthiness and reliability to the brand based on the Market Communication. Competition There are two major competitors for Bois Banded wine and one for Bois Banded Tea. All the competitors for both products have been on the market for a longer period of time, and have the benefit of experience to their credit. The perception of these products that compete with Bois Banded Wine has always been gimmicky, based on their unverifiable claims and variations in consumer results. Boise Banded wine will deliver a higher level of customer satisfaction and turn that into a selling point.
