NEW MARKET:
THE ULTIMATE SHOPPING CENTER
Every city has that one shopping center where everyone goes due to the various awesome advantages they get by shopping there. Some of these renowned shopping centers all over the world are Kolkata’s Boro Bazar, Bangkok’s Chinatown Market, Los Angeles Mall, and so on. I live in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh where we have a similar shopping center called New
Market. Every inhabitant of Dhaka city is familiar with New Market and goes shopping there due to various perks like the variety of products it has to offer, cheap price and easy transportation.

New Market is that place where one can find anything, literally anything. The very first sight while entering New Market is the uncountable number of shops at every side one can gaze upon. There are shops where clothes of the most recent trends are sold. There are shops of everything- toys, bags, carpets, watches, kitchen appliances, jewelries, and many more. One can even buy furniture from New Market. The delicious fast foods along with Biriyani can be smelt far away from the restaurants which spread all over the premises of New Market. New Market is ideal for anyone who has a list of different products to buy within a very short time from one place. New Market does not only offer a variety of goods, but it also offers all of them in very reasonable prices. One of the very important reasons why people prefer New Market is because they can always negotiate the price of their desired goods with the salesmen. Customers can be heard bargaining over price with the salesmen in every shop. One can go and compare between products of different shops, give trails and then make their purchase decision depending on which shop offers them the best value over price. New Market can be so cheap that…...

...Market Research Study for Pre-School venture in Lower Manhattan Introduction The price of private education in Manhattan is exponentially increasing. Over the past 10 years, the median price of first grade in the city has gone up 48%, adjusted for inflation, compared with a 35% increase nationally (NYTimes.com, 1/29/2012). Clearly there is a supply and demand crisis, with more students than seats available. Therefore, our team decided to research the possibility of launching a new pre-school in lower Manhattan. We believe there is a desirable opportunity to open a customized pre-school that serves both our own interests and parents’ current unmet needs. To give some color, below are three recent excerpts concerning the topic: “I think the nursery school admissions process is a war zone. It’s parent against parent, it’s toddler versus toddler… Parents are crazy competitive…It’s about getting in, fitting in, it’s about belonging. That’s why people sweat it.” (Parent from “Nursery University” documentary, 2007) “In an entrepreneurial city where even volatile commodities like real estate eventually find their equilibrium, the desire for private school seats has outpaced supply for many years, in some cases by an order of magnitude. “ (nytimes.com, 2010). “When the public school Pre-K selections were announced, we were denied acceptance to ALL 10 schools…out of 12 friends with kids hoping to enter Pre-K in the Fall of 2011, not ONE of them got in. You see,......

New Products in Existing Markets

...ever-changing market opens up a plethora of opportunities for competitors. Customers needs and wants constantly alter, bringing about a change in demand and supply. Stein says that industry competitors must be cognizant of new customers entering their market, while employing organizational strategies that exploit those entrants. An increasingly expanding market generates challengers seeking to make a competitive move through positioning or placement of new products. Introducing new products in the same segment with existing products is a good idea, but firms must proceed with caution. Many firms can add products to its existing product lines in order to create variations in different market segments. Stein says that at the SBU level, firms can add complementary and supplementary products to its main products to “round out its product lines.” Complementary products are ones that can be used concurrently with other products, while performance and quality are upgraded in primary products through the manufacturing of supplementary products. Adding new products to an existing product line will access a larger range of market segments. The idea is to position the product aggressively against the “less well-positioned” competitors in order to promote rapid growth. This rapid growth will increase a firm’s market share and will benefit its long-term goals. Following its entrance into the segment, firms should employ a penetration strategy to further saturate itself into the......

...Journal of Electronic Commerce Research, VOL. 6, NO.2, 2005 WEB-BASED SHOPPING: CONSUMERS’ ATTITUDES TOWARDS ONLINE SHOPPING IN NEW ZEALAND Gurvinder S Shergill Massey University Auckland, New Zealand G.S.Shergill@massey.ac.nz Zhaobin Chen Global Integration Ltd Auckland, New Zealand ben_chen46@hotmail.com ABSTRACT The growing use of Internet in New Zealand provides a developing prospect for E-marketers. If E-marketers know the factors affecting online New Zealand buyers’ behaviour, and the relationships between these factors and the type of online buyers, then they can further develop their marketing strategies to convert potential customers into active ones, while retaining existent online customers. This paper is part of larger study, and focuses on factors which online New Zealand buyers keep in mind while shopping online. It also investigates how different types of online buyers perceive websites differently. This research found that website design, website reliability/fulfilment, website customer service and website security/privacy are the four dominant factors which influence consumer perceptions of online purchasing. The four types of online New Zealand buyers; i.e., trial, occasional, frequent and regular online buyers; perceived the four website factors differently. These buyers have different evaluations of website design and website reliability/fulfilment but similar evaluations of website security/privacy issues, which implies that security/privacy issues...

Australian and New Zealand Online Shopping Market and Digital Insights

...3 Definition and methodology The definition of online shopping we use is online purchasing of physical merchandise such as clothes, books, and electronic items. This covers the same merchandise categories as used in the retail sales statistics published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Statistics New Zealand, and therefore online sales can be directly compared with total retail sales. The study excludes online purchasing of services such as travel & accommodation, event ticketing, financial services products and media downloads, as these categories are not included in the retail sales statistics. Purchases of items from online auction sites (such as eBay) are also excluded, but purchases of fixedprice items from sites such as eBay are included in the analysis. Online shopping is defined as occasions where a transaction is made online (generally with the payment being made at the time of the transaction) and excludes online browsing or research with the transaction subsequently being made in a physical store or via the telephone or another channel. All business-to-business (B2B) online purchasing is also excluded. The report is based on a comprehensive survey of 1,200 consumers (1,000 in Australia and 200 in New Zealand) between the ages of 15 and 65 who have shopped online in the past 12 months, with online shoppers being asked to record their online shopping behaviour in terms of total online shopping expenditure, both overall and by merchandise category, the......

Proposal for Investigating New Markets

...Proposal for investigating new markets Reasons for researching new markets: Since our current market is saturated, it is high time to look for new markets, before our competitors do. Therefor we should not only look in the east but also into another field. Types of markets we might break into: With our current products we can not only keep the heat in but we could also use it as a sound insulation without further adjustments. Since the market in Germany, Switzerland and Austria is sated, we should check out Poland, Czechia, Bulgaria and some other eastern countries. How the research should be done: First of all we should check our competition. We need to make sure, that we would be one of the first to provide this kind of product. Next we should concentrate on the legal part. What requirements do sound insulations have to meet? It is highly recommended to search for potential customers and get in touch with them for the first time. We need to know what they would expect of the product and also what kind of service they would like to have. Then there is the occupancy rate of the manufacture to be beard in mind. The resources which will be needed for carrying out the research: Most of the data we need, we already have. To research the customers I would need an addition of 5 other members. Other resources we would need would be cell phones to call eastern companies. This should be thought of, since it would cost a lot to phone from our normal line. The......

Online Shopping Channel – Trending Topic of the Market

...Online Shopping Channel – Trending Topic of the Market If you are a Starbucks fan, the first thing you do in the morning, is probably walk into a Starbucks store and buy a cup of coffee. You will show your Starbucks card, and get a “star” for every drink you purchase. With a Starbucks card, you can earn great rewards for using it, get special discount, receive personalized birthday cake, and enjoy convenient online order via iPhone app. Starbucks makes our daily life much better just by the power of a small-digitalized card. Imagine this digitalization happens in the whole fashion industry. You may wonder, why bother shopping online when we could drive fifteen minutes to a large shopping mall? Let me tell you some facts first. More than eighty percent of consumers in the United States are satisfied with buying experiences, however, only sixty percent of them are pleased with in store shopping experience. With $248.7 billion online sales, consumers should try online shopping more often, and benefit from it. E-commerce channels make shopping more convenient. Online stores remove the limitation of geographic locations as well as time constraints. Consumers can not only obtain and view unlimited options of goods, but also receive fast and secure shipping service. For example, after you enjoyed a late movie that is located in a shopping mall, you passed by an amazing dress that was shown behind the glass. It was exactly the dress that you were dreaming for.

New Pharmaceuticals and Their Journey to the Market

...New Pharmaceuticals and Their Journey to the Market [YOUR NAME] [YOUR SCHOOL] When pharmaceutical companies take on an experimental drug there is a lot of time and money they have to allow for them to maybe make it to market. It’s reported that only 5 in 5,000 drugs that head into preclinical testing even make it to human testing. (Drug approvals - from invention to market, n.d.) A study of the cost has shown that the cost of developing a drug that obtains market approval is $2.6 billion with another $312 million for post-approval development for a life cycle cost of $2.9 billion. (Mullin, Chemical, & News, n.d.) It all begins in preclinical tests, where the pharmaceutical company perform studies before they test on humans. In vitro testing first, where the future drug is tested in a laboratory and after that in vivo tests, where they test on animals. These tests take 3 ½ years. (Drug approvals - from invention to market, n.d. ). The in vivo tests study and record side effects, adverse effects, addictions, cancerous tumors, or fetal deformities. (Turley, 2014) After the animal studies are through, the drug company requests permission for human testing from the FDA by submitting an Investigational New Drug (IND) application. The IND shows information from the animal studies that the drug shouldn’t pose a risk to humans and the chemical structure of the compound along with how it is manufactured. If the IND is approved by the FDA, the drug company may begin sending......
