Nightclub - Sample Plan

5.1 Marketing Strategy

A high growth area, such as Your City, has an annual influx of new residents from many other parts of the country. This trend is true of Your State in general.

Many new residents, as well as many existing ones, are members of clubs in other markets. The Nightclub is a place for all. The enabling technology will be an inherent part of the Nightclub's image.

Advertising budgets and event promotion are ongoing processes of management geared to promote the brand name and keep the Nightclub at the forefront of the dance theme establishments in Your City's marketing area.

We depend on radio advertising as our main way to reach new customers. Our strategies and practices will remain constant, as will the way we promote ourselves:

  • Advertising -- We'll be developing a core positioning message.

  • Grand Opening -- We will concentrate a substantial portion of our early advertising budget towards the 'Grand Opening Event.'

  • Direct Marketing -- We'll directly market to local hotels surrounding the powers and the local airport.

The Nightclub will create an identity-oriented marketing strategy with executions particularly in radio media, alongside print ads, and in-store promotions.

A grand opening event will be held to launch the Nightclub in the summer of 2001. A radio advertising blitz will precede the event for three weeks, with ambiguous teasers about an "event like no other" in the city's history and the forthcoming opening date. Contests will be held on the target radio stations giving away V.I.P. passes (coupons) to the event while at the same time, creating excitement about the opening. We will leverage our relationship with the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders to be present on the night of the grand opening. The opening date is tentative at this point and dependent upon construction completion. The budget for the event will be $10,000, and the milestone date will parallel the available opening date, currently June of 2001.

Achievement of the following campaigns will be measured by the polling of customers as to how they heard of the Nightclub for the first ninety days of operation. Budget adjustments will be made as the results dictate.

We will be running regular local radio and newspaper ads to create brand awareness. Our radio ads will be concentrated strongly on Magic FM, the city's top radio station among our target market segments. Through commercial repetition, a teaser campaign, and the use of catchy phrases, we hope to obtain intellectual ownership of our target market segments: when they think dance club and bar they'll have to think the Nightclub. Drink specials will also be staples of our radio advertising in order to bring people in. HK will be responsible for ongoing radio ads with a monthly budget of $12,000 per month for the first ninety days, followed by an ongoing budget of $6500 per month.

We will advertise directly to local hotel guests in the local airport and surrounding the Boulevard areas to attract business travelers and tourists with no knowledge of where to go in the evening. Through the use of fliers and table tents to place in hotel rooms, we hope to create visitor awareness of our location and event promotion. Promos such as 'show your room key and get a free drink' in conjunction with the room ads would be relatively inexpensive from an advertising standpoint and requires limited ongoing maintenance and expense. BK will be responsible for direct advertising with a start-up budget of $3,000 and a maintenance budget of $1,000 per month. The milestone date will be thirty days after the
