Prior to commencing any marketing, I allocated a portion of my time to understanding the business and how it operated and consulted with staff and customers for their input. In addition, I carried out market research of New Oriental’s competitors to assess what they were offering to their customers in comparison to New Oriental. I carried this out through various means including examining their menu provision and special offers, researching their social media marketing and whether they had a website, and I also visited their premises to assess their shop design and customer service. Based on what I had learned I compiled a SWOT analysis for New Oriental, which briefly outlined the potential strengths, opportunities, weaknesses and threats. SWOT analysis is a useful tool, which helps businesses focus on their strengths, identify and minimise threats and take advantage of any potential opportunities.
