Market opportunities

To compare the organization against market conditions, this opportunities vs threats checklist grades where opportunities exist across market conditions like consumer habit trends, competition, and market potential; environmental conditions like regulations, laws, or the climate; and the organization's strengths and weaknesses.

A company can use its pricing strategy to gain a competitive advantage in several ways. First, it can use penetration pricing to attract customers and gain market share. This involves setting a low initial price to attract customers and discourage competitors. Second, it can use price skimming, which involves setting a high price for a new product to maximize profits from early adopters. Third, it can use value-based pricing, which involves setting a price based on the perceived value of the product or service to the customer. Finally, it can use cost-plus pricing, which involves adding a markup to the cost of producing the product.

A company's marketing plan can help it adapt to changing consumer habits by identifying and understanding these changes and then developing strategies to meet the new demands. This could involve adjusting the product range, pricing, or promotional strategies. The marketing plan also allows the company to assess its strengths and weaknesses in relation to these changes, enabling it to leverage its strengths and address its weaknesses.

A company can overcome its main weaknesses by investing in research and development to foster innovation, improving financial management to increase resources, and providing training to employees to enhance their skills. It can also consider strategic partnerships or acquisitions to strengthen its position. Furthermore, it can seek feedback from customers to identify areas for improvement and implement changes accordingly.

Customer satisfaction matrix

After the organization's market and customer base are established and its target market segmentation is broken down, execs can conduct a satisfaction matrix to evaluate customer expectations against the "received value" of the product. This helps determine what the marketing plan should allocate resources on.

This matrix lists several customer criteria expected from a product or service with an assigned weight between 0 and 1. The customer scores the criteria, then execs plot the scores from poor to excellent and multiply them by each weighting to create the final value. The degree of correspondence between the weight and score is most important as it shows alignment between expectation and received value. Any area where the company ranks poorly in the survey, but the criteria were weighted highly by the customer, should be a main focus area for improvement. (Slide 5)

Case study: TikTok

In 2021, TikTok surpassed a billion users but was still making less annual ad revenue than Twitter with three times as many users. For every $1 TikTok made in ads, Facebook and Instagram made $9. TikTok knew it was behind on monetization, so it partnered with Vimeo to launch better ad tools for small businesses. Then it followed Youtube's 2018 playbook to crack down on unsavory content and improve its ad targeting. At the end of 2021, its revenues grew 70% and it will likely surpass Instagram with 1.5 billion users by the end of 2022. The Youtube marketing plan is key - if these moves have the same effect, TikTok could grow its ad revenue 7x over the next three years. Now, not only is TikTok Facebook's biggest threat but it's fully set to capitalize on Facebook's decline.

While search ads placed with Google or Amazon reach users at the "buy stage" of the marketing funnel where they're already intent to find and purchase something, Facebook ads reach users earlier in the funnel to create an impression while they are trying to socialize with friends and family. But as of February 2022, Instagram and Facebook's cost per impression is 4x higher than TikTok - so if you're paying for impressions anyway, why pay 4x the price?
