Revenue at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, management assignment help

Description

Summary:

Revenue at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore often fluctuates depending
on state and local economic conditions. When the economy declines, the
zoo receives less funding from the state and city of Baltimore as well
as less support from corporate and private sponsorship.

However, membership has remained relatively steady. Membership has
remained at more than 10,000 members despite spending changes on
marketing and communications by the Board of Directors. (See the
Maryland Zoo’s Annual Reports for financial details at
http://www.marylandzoo.org/publications/)

Assignment:

PHASE 2: Recommended Promotion Strategy using a postcard campaign.
Now that you have conducted a SWOT Analysis and Environmental Scan for
the Maryland Zoo, you should have a better idea of the challenges and
opportunities facing the Maryland Zoo.

The next step then is to identify the
target market segments that would be most relevant for the Maryland Zoo
to promote membership sales. Be specific as possible and include age
demographics, geographic areas, income, psychological influences,
situational influences and sociocultural influences (see Chapter 5).

Your Recommended Promotion Strategy must include the following:

      1. the target market segment;
      2. the marketing message;
      3. the estimated cost of printing, acquiring target market lists, and mailing the postcard;
      4. your projections showing how you expect the campaign to perform;
      5. and how you will track the results of the campaign to determine if it was successful;
