1. Executive Summary

This report describes the various means by which Beck Taxi can increase its revenue and market share in the highly commoditized Cab Industry in Toronto. Any increase in pricing of radio service would lead to high attrition among the drivers and poor service quality in terms of timely service as drivers would start picking up fares. Hence Beck taxi should maintain status quo with respect to pricing radio fee. It should generate revenues through advertising inside and on the cab, by attracting more drivers, vehicle fleet owners and license plate holders by providing them incentives and by creating strong differentiating points by investing in technology and marketing activities.
Situational Analysis

Toronto’s Cab Industry has a supply overhang; also, there is not much differentiation between the 35 brokerages operating in Toronto in terms of the service provided hence cab service is highly commoditized. Toronto is a phone order market where speed of response is the index of customer service. Beck Taxi is the market leader, managing a number of plates and providing radio despatch service to vehicles. Its objective is to maximise its revenue and market share.

Beck Taxi has not increased its radio fees since 1989 hence there is huge potential to increase its revenue by increasing the radio fee or implementing two part tariff where the driver is charged a fixed fee and a usage fee based on the number of radio despatches. But any increase in radio service pricing policy would lead

Increase in market share can be best accomplished by accumulating a larger fleet of cars, by attracting and retaining more drivers thereby building a pool of core drivers and by attracting plate holders. These can be accomplished by providing appropriate incentives. 2. Problem:
Beck Taxi is already a market leader in the Cab Industry and it wants to…...

"La llamamos la Marca en la mano", dijo al grupo ejecutivos senior de marketing que se habían reunido para presentar su estrategia para el próximo año.

Our company along with many other businesses who deal in marketing found that targeting Millennials will provide much needed revenue to business entities such as yours. Our research has found that Millennials have an abundance of familiarity with today’s technological devices, as well as possessing the ability to easily adapt to the accelerating levels of innovation. 93% of Millennials are internet users when compared to Generation X, Baby Boomers and seniors (Crang, 2012). Your Social Media Marketing Campaign is breaking particular barriers and providing your company the opportunity to capture the attention, as well as impress, convince as well as entertain your target group. Your current social media ads appears to focus on increasing your target groups’ retention rate, by stimulating their visual senses and imagination. Previous studies have shown that television advertisements are less effective when directed toward a younger target group. We have also found that it is significantly more difficult to breakthrough and persuade Millennials with advertising messages...

Mobile Marketing | Adidas: a Case Study & Suggestions

...Orhan Sertdemirel Swiss Business School MMM500 Marketing Management Mobile Marketing | Adidas: A Case Study & Suggestions The case study on Adidas and its mobile marketing strategies has been impressive, because it not only showed us inventive solutions undertaken by Adidas executives, but also reminded us of the beginning of 2000's, a period that technologically almost belongs to antiquity. Given that the case is focusing on Mobile Marketing, it's important to underline that the article dates back to 2005, an ancient time of pre-smartphone and pre-social media times. Even though the article mentions the usage of 'colored mobile-phones', it was written just before the usage of smartphones and social media boomed, and these became commodities or applications that were used by practically everybody. Taking these into account, and also the target group of people aged 12 - 24 of Adidas; I will try to mention some developments to be taken into account, as possible strategies for the Adidas of 2005. It is a time when we spend more time communicating than sleeping, where people spend about 8.2 hours a day using various media and communication tools. If we focus on some numbers and statistics (links in the bottom of the document) that reveal a lot about the market and addresses of the young people, we can start by stating that 61% of phone users have a smartphone, while this reaches 80% in age group 18-34. Consumers aged 18-24 spend about 5.2 hours a day with their......

...carrier of rumour. (iv)     Group think philosophy: Workers become loyal to their groups. Ans 4 Definition Departmentalization involves the dividing of an organization into different departments, which perform tasks according to the departments' specializations in the organization. Departmentalization as a means of structuring an organization can be found in both public and private organizations. Types of Departmentalization An organization can structure itself into departments in the following ways: Functional Departmentalization. An organization can be organized into departments based upon the respective functions each performs for the organization. For example, a manufacturing company may create a production department, sales and marketing department, an accounting department, and a human resources department. Functional departmentalization may be advantageous as it can increase efficiency and expertise because all related activities are performed in one place by one group of people that specialize in that activity. Geographic Departmentalization. Organizing departments along geographic lines is often a good idea for large multinational firms with offices around the world. All activities related to the organization's activities in each region are handled by a department in that region. One advantage of this method is that it ensures the development of expertise specific to the political, social, and cultural needs of the region. Moreover, sending managers to work......

Mobile Marketing to Millennials

...Mobile Marketing Netflix One brand reaching out perfectly to Millennials is Netflix. In recent years, Netflix decreased the amount of money spent on paid advertising in the U.S. across traditional media and instead is spending marketing dollars online, particularly on mobile devices. Netflix’s efforts to be more digital and content forward in their marketing has shown favorable results. The company spent about $121 million on advertising last year, down from $143 million in 2013 and $218 million in 2012, according to Kantar Media. As the cost of advertising has decreased, subscribers increased by 4.88 million last quarter, shares recently increased to a record $560.24, subscribers have topped 62 million worldwide and 75% of millennials with connected televisions are using them to watch Netflix. Netflix expands their brand reach and promotes their content to millennials through the use of mobile and social media campaigns focusing on Netflix’s original series. Millennials want to share what movie or TV shows they’re watching. Netflix offers an app designed to celebrate their original shows and interact with its fans. For the season premiere of “Orange is the New Black”, a prison show, the app enabled users to insert their face into mugshots before sharing them via social media or SMS.
