Porter’s 5 forces
Competition in the industry
Products of various companies are highly undifferentiated, which increases rivalry. , many companies are shifting their strategy towards niches or by offering additional services to consumers.
Low fixed costs and dynamic market revenue growth in recent years alleviate rivalry to an extent, limiting the onset of price wars, and if the market keeps expanding competition could still be assessed as a moderate threat (Marketline, 2016).
Potential of new entry into the industry
The allure of cost savings, access to a greater variety of products and services, coupled with the increased convenience of online retailers has driven more and more competitor to purchase goods online. This situation significantly increases the likelihood of new entrants/competitors.
The ease of search engines and price comparison websites mean that the sector is highly competitive. Consumers, now more than ever before, have access to large sources of information that keeps them updated about the characteristics of a product and how it compares with the competition.
This situation could be deterrent for prospective new entrants. However, constant change in consumer behaviour and diversified audiences creates sufficient opportunities that can be exploited by new entrants.
Power of Suppliers (Moderate)
IT infrastructure providers have a strong power and much depend on them. There are numerous players in the industry which has driven the operating costs of every ecommerce related activity down and has made it less costly than a traditional store. Virtually most companies in the meal-kit delivery service rely on their online platforms for their operations.
There is a risk of forwarding integration from large corporations (i.e., Amazon) in the food industry, including large food chains and distribution process. However, the need for specific skills and innovative resources required for the meal-kit delivery service represent a challenge most of the big player are not willing to take due to financial capabilities
Every business got either a niche to focus on or a wide audience. our research made us understand that our target market is to be focused on the wider range. Firstly the generation Z student and working class is a popular demographic for meal delivery services, as college students and young adults live fast paced lives, with a lot of classes and assignment they have, active social lives on different platforms and new careers being pursued, there is little to no time to think about what to make for dinner, let alone buy groceries. Then we have the Generation X Full Nest. With music lessons, soccer practices and endless to-do lists, parents can sometimes feel overwhelmed when planning a meal at the end of the day. Meal delivery services are a great option for busy parents and families. And finally, we have Generation X Middle class professionals from Northampton. Working professionals, especially men, are gravitating toward meal kit delivery services. According to Time.com, studies show that men are slightly more likely to order a meal kit, with 23% saying they’ve used a service as opposed to only 15% of women. Men are more likely to other than women.
Rebalance communication strategy, has a plan to achieve communication objectives. This will apply to internal communication, marketing communications and public relations. Rebalance communication strategy has four major components, which are: Communication goals, target audience, communication plan and channels communications.
However, a communication plan is a framework of how a communication strategy will be achieved including a schedule and responsibilities.
For example, during the Black Friday and Christmas, rebalance target to their loyal customers, as the main target market, their goals is to sell 10.000 units of their products around November and December. As their use all sort of format to reach their audience, such as Magazine advertising, Broadcasting Advertising, Digital Advertising and promotion Pricing.
The three activities of a successful targeting strategy that allows Rebalance to accomplish are segmentation, targeting and placing, typically referred to as STP.
Target market and target audience are similar marketing terms, each having to do with the specific market segment a company targets with its products, services and brands. There are differences between these two terms, however, mostly related to the practical implications each has on different components of the marketing function.
Marketing Communication Channel (Presentation)
As marketing continues to evolve, new methods — typically referred to as “new media”. These methods are mostly said to deliver better results than other tactics — known as “traditional media” or even “old media”
Traditional media allows businesses to target a broad target audience through billboards, print advertising, television commercials, and more. In comparison, new media allows companies to target a narrow target audience through social media, paid online ads, and search results. Price-wise, traditional media tends to cost more than new media due to its broad targeting and advertising channels.
There are many benefits associated with social media marketing. Bradley (2010) states Social media is a Mass marketing tool, way to engage with costumers build a relationship, and to Make the brand presence known.
