...Emma Doran Unit 12 p2 P2: Describe how selected organisations uses internet marketing Not only does internet marketing have benefits for the companies, customers have advantages as well. Like already mentioned, customers can now first quickly compare prices online before they buy a product (or flight ticket). This will especially come in hand in the airline industry because airline companies are a frequent user of dynamic pricing. Customers are also provided with the latest updates about their product. In the upper section is explained that customers can register at the Easy Jet website so they will be kept up to date. The internet even offers customers the chance to conduct immediate transactions and they instantly have the pleasure of knowing that they have made a booking. If we take Easy Jet for an example again: after the consumer has paid they will immediately receive their digital ticket by e-mail and they can look forward to their holiday without worrying if there booking has been processed properly. Then, a few days before they leaving they can check in online and even choose where to sit in the plane in advance. Further on, maybe one of the biggest advantages for customers is the online customer service. The internet offers multiple ways of online services. For example, almost every website has a page with frequently asked question on it. Customers are now able the place a comment or complaint on the website or send it to the online help desk. Moreover, the......

...Changing the importance of the three sectors 1. What are the 3 sectors of business activity? There are three sectors and they are: • The Primary Sector- this is the sector where raw materials are collected for example, farming, fishing and mining. • The Secondary Sector- In this sector the raw materials are manufactured and turned into a selling product, for example making a plastic bottle from oil. • The Tertiary Sector- this is the retail sector where the manufactured products are sold but also is where some businesses provide a service. 2. Copy the graph on pg 108 to show the changing employment levels in the different sectors over the last 20 years in the UK. This graph is showing us that in 1985 there use to be more employees in the more labour jobs like mining and quarrying, textiles and motor cars but in 2000 these had fallen instead there were more jobs in hotels and restaurants, recreation and sport than in 1985. 3. Explain 2 reasons why there has been a decrease in the primary sector in the UK: The primary sector has decreased because of advanced technology and everything is becoming automated. For example, in farms where raw materials were usually dug up by hand, they are now using machines to do it instead. This is because it is cheaper to buy machines as it is faster and more efficient. The result therefore is that costs are reduced and profits are increased, but also fewer people are needed to work in these sectors. 4. Explain 2 reasons why there...

...P5 - Design a promotional campaign for a given product/service to meet the needs of a given campaign/creative brief. In this assignment, I have a friend who is setting up a sandwich and snack bar to provide lunches for workers at a local industrial estate. To help him out I have agreed to design a promotional campaign. It is essential for this sandwich and snack bar to be located inside the local industrial estate. The sandwich/snack bar is aiming to provide lunch to the workers working at the industrial estate on a daily basis, which includes a seating area. To start of the new snack bar/sandwich bar, employees working at the snack bar would be handing out free samples of the fresh different flavoured sandwiches, Panini's, and samples of any other quick snacks. This will be done in order for the customers/consumers, specifically workers at the local industrial estate to experience the extravagant flavouring and taste, which will encourage them to come inside and buy more. The sandwich/snack bar will market the products sold at the sandwich/snack bar as healthy and nutritious as all the products which will be sold at the sandwich/snack bar would be made freshly and all ingredients and within comes with 100% fruit juice and a bag of either fruit or fruit salad. This will be a good idea, as nowadays many people seek to eat healthy therefore with the 100% fruit juice and the bag of fruit salad will encourage people to buy a quick tasty snack or a sandwich with their chosen......

...way the business will need to expand its organisation needs(which are also called workforce) and these new people must be trained and also must be able to speak other languages(if the store will open in different countries). However, nowadays the technology that Tesco had include in its supermarkets, has affected the organisational needs because by using the equipment customers do not need more than two people to help them. Workforce profiles: As any business Tesco has got workforce profiles which include information such as: gender, age, ability and ethnicity. In fact, if Tesco had people who retire at the same time, Tesco would be able to cover them by introducing new employees. In order to have the equality at work, Tesco also have ethnicity as a paragraph within the workforce profiles. By using this method Tesco may assemble the same ethnicity together to obtain better performances. External Factors Supply of labour: To cover all the new markets demand Tesco’s HR has to cover all the gaps by training the new employees and by making them flexible within the shift hours and within the market demand. Demand for products and services: Tesco has started to grow. In fact, Tesco’s demand has increased in the last few years.

...Assignment Three – Task One and Two – P5 + M2. Economic Environment: The totality of economic factors, such as employment, income, inflation, interest rates, productivity, and wealth, that influence the buying behaviour of consumers and institutions. Business Cycle: A cycle, or series of cycles of economic expansion and contraction. Growth and Recession: Period of general economic decline, defined usually as a contraction in the GDP for six months (two consecutive quarters) or longer. Marked by high unemployment, stagnant wages, and fall in retail sales, a recession generally does not last longer than one year and is much milder than a depression. Although recessions are considered a normal part of a capitalist economy, there is no unanimity of economists on its causes. The economic environment is all of the economic factors such as employment, income, inflation, interest rates, productivity and wealth that influences the buying patterns of customers. An economic boom occurs when there is a high period of fast economic growth. The output is high because of an increased demand unemployment being low. After experiencing an economic boom, then comes the recession. This happens when the economic growth slows down and the level of output decreases. Unemployment is likely to increase and organisations may lose confidence and reduce their investments. After the recession there is a slump. This is a period when outputs slow down because of a reduction in demand.......

...P5 Interpret the contents of a trading and profit and loss account and balance sheet for a selected business’s annotated final accounts. The trading account shows the business has made a gross profit before taking into account other expenses associated with the business such as overheads. The purpose of a profit and loss account is to: Show whether a business had made a profit or a loss over a given time period (e.g.financial year). Describe how the profit or loss arose (e.g. categorising costs between most of sales and operating costs). Sales/Revenue is an income earned by the business from the sales of its products/services over a period of time, including discounts and deductions for returned merchandise. Sales/Revenue is known as the “top line” because it is displayed first on a company's statement. Expenses are deducted from revenue in order to obtain net income— the “bottom line”. Sales is calculated by multiplying the price at which goods or services are sold by the number or units or amount sold. Gross Profit it is a company’s total revenue, only those expenses directly related to the production of goods for sale, called the cost of goods sold (COGS). These include expenses for raw materials and the labour to assemble a product but exclude other: debts, taxes, interest or operating expenses.

In this assessment I will be writing about the economic environment and how it affects the business. In this assignment I will be writing about the company National Health Service (NHS). National Health Service is a public sector company run by the government. But nevertheless all companies are affected by the economic environment. But in this assignment I will be highlight the two main factors that ‘Recession and Boom’. National Health Service is a company that is run by the government. It is a company that provides health service for the people living within the UK. National Health Service currently provides the service for the 50 million people that are living in Great Britain. The target and objective of the company is to help the ill patients and cure them. The demand is increasing for the service. This will lead to more job vacancies for the people. By providing the best possible service it will help improve the lives of the people and also increase the live expectancy. During the time of recession National Health Service was also affected amongst the other businesses that are run by the government also publicly. During the Recession NHS was largely affected as it was hit by £15 billion shortfall. This meant that poor service was provided and also the waiting lists would increase. Furthermore the term Recession means when there is a period of general period is decline,......

Btec Business Unit 36 Financial Aspects

...P4 Describe financial aspects that affect the start-up of your business. Start-up costs Start-up costs are the expenses incurred during the process of creating a new business. All businesses are different, and can require different types of start-up costs. In order for a business to survive, start-up costs need to be kept as low as possible. Business owner has to make list of start-up costs. Using a list of start-up costs a business owner would then create a personal survival budget. For my business idea that is in school café I should still keep start-up costs low, but as far as it is in school I don’t have to worry about the equipment for my business, because they already have kitchen to work in and café to sell my products. However I still have to pay the rent and I need resources to start with – stock. Personal survival budget In order for your business to survive, you need to have enough money to cover all your start-up costs, the costs of running the business and also for you to live on. This section looks at how to determine your personal survival budget. I think my business would not affect my personal survival budget too much, because I don’t have to buy all the equipment like ovens, fridges, etc. As far as I have to worry mostly about the stock for my business. Cost of premises Choosing appropriate premises is crucial to the success of a business. Business owners then have to decide whether they want to rent or buy premises.

...Executive summary Business proposal The business that I have chosen to do will be a café business that will provide organic product only, the business will be called Pretty Baked. The reason why I have chosen this name is because I want to have a name that is fun to read as this way there is a high chance that people will remember my business name. The main idea of this business is to have a cake café for everyone to sit down with their friends or family to relax and talk while having freshly baked cakes (see appendix 1), croissant (chocolate and butter) a cup of coffee (Flat white, Cappuccino, Americano, Espresso), tea (traditional tea, earl grey) and other drinks such as hot chocolate. The business is based in the Marlow high street (see appendix 2 and 7) I believe that this is a good place to base my business because the high street is a very busy place also near the Marlow bridge so therefore there will be a high chance that I will have higher footfall compare to places outside the high street (see appendix 3 for Marlow population density and appendix 4 show the total population of Marlow from 2010 to 2013). Furthermore the café will be opening at 7 A.M. in the morning until 5 P.M. in the evening, however, on a Sunday the shop will be open later at 10 A.M to 4 P.M. The reason why I have chosen these specific times is because I will be able to maximise the amount of customers as the café will be open during the morning rush hour. This time is normally when people are......

In this assignment I will be interpreting the contents of the trading and profit loss account of Marks and Spencer’s and their balance sheet. I will then give my opinion on how well the might look to shareholders in the business. Scenario Marks and Spencer’s Finance Manager is attending the AGM set for the shareholders and other stakeholders next week. He has asked you to produce a presentation to address the stakeholders for Marks and Spencer’s. Why is a trading, profit and loss account important? A trading and profit loss account shows the how successful the business has been in terms of achieving their ultimate aim which is to make a profit. Most of the time the trading, profit and loss account of a business would tend to show the volume of revenue the business has received within the year of the trading, profit and loss account and the cost involved in generating that revenue. It is important as it allows them to compare their performance to previous years. This is also important because similarly to the balance sheet as it allows investors and shareholders to look at the businesses financial status and decide whether they would prefer to invest in the business. This puts added pressure on a business such as M&S because if they have failed in their objective of making a profit there is a high chance of them losing...

...| P4 and P5: Draw up plans to assess the design of the website. | Mr Morgan | | Phillips.Kieran | | | Purpose The purpose of this website is to be largely promotional and raise the status of Monmouth and the surrounding areas as a destination for overseas visitors. In achieving this, the website is designed to be informational, educational and to encourage tourists to visit and stay in the area. Availability and Accessibility Starting with the basic, yet key aspect of usability, I will be discussing the availability and accessibility of the site. If people try to access the website and it doesn’t work — for whatever reason –the website becomes worthless. An example is server uptime, it’s important to ensure the possible or current visitors don’t get an error trying to load the site therefore it will be wise to invest in good hosting which will be done. Another example is broken links, it is essential to double check that there are no dead links on the site. Another key aspect to consider is Mobile responsiveness, ensuring that the site can handle different screen sizes and slow connections. Clarity The second key aspect to usability is clarity. If you distract or confuse your visitors, they will either need more time to find what they came for, or they might forget their initial goal all together. Either way, they will not experience the website as user-friendly or chances are that they will leave dissatisfied and with no intention of coming back....
