English Wine Week
Direct and Digital Marketing Plan

Team Sunflowers - Team code 2114-03.

Team code 2114-03.

Executive Summary For English Wine Producers we propose the following objectives to get the most out of their English Wine Week: • • • • Increase the number of visitors attending the vineyards during the week To sell at least 65,000 bottles throughout the week To create a functional database upon which consumer data can be used in the future Increase awareness of the week through promotional activities

A specific action plan is set to meet the objective targets. All activities will be through off-trade retailers and targeting consumers in the ABC1 categories predominately in the South East of England. Due to targeting these consumers we aim to create a premium perception of our product to take advantage of slumps in sales of Champagne. We aim to generate a vibe of interest from our campaign, advertising and events in which people want to get more involved with wine and events orientated around it. For instance through our created app GPS will locate local wine events, vineyards and merchants that sell English wine, and customers will be able to use this at will. Currently English wine have 1785 consumer details from details given to them from vineyards. Database software will be purchased so that EWP can collect data from their consumers so that in the future they are able to retain the consumers. The media which will be used has been selected as we feel that this attracts our target consumers and in turn will help meet the objective targets. We will attend events such as Badminton Horse Trials and RHS Spring Gardening Show that will likely to attract a large portion of our target audience to allow them to text the product and to educate them to the week. A period of testing will take place prior to the English wine week in which all media will be…...

Gold has a record long history as a commodity and as a store of value. It has been formally a monetary media in and around the world. Gold has faced complete official demonetization long back, yet it experiences continued and renewed interest as a private or unofficial monetary medium. Even governments around the world are making greater use of gold in international financial affairs. Over time, gold has undergone three major transitions: 1. Gold was a medium of exchange in the early civilization 2. Next, an international banking system was developed around it, in which paper money was fully convertible into gold 3. This convertibility was ceased in 1971 by the then president Richard Nixon and a purely fiat money system took its place. Early civilizations equated gold with gods and rulers. Humans almost intuitively place a high value on gold, equating it......

Sunflowers in Fukushima

...Sunflowers in Fukushima Fukushima, Japan, faced a terrible outlook as of March, 2011. After the devastation of an earthquake, tsunami and a nuclear power meltdown, the city was left with a huge cleanup not for the faint hearted with radioactive isotopes filling the air, water and earth beneath them. With terrible agricultural and medical consequences looming, scientists had to act fast and on a very large scale. Using lessons from Chernobyl, scientists have enlisted the assistance of sunflowers and their fast growing capabilities. Could sunflowers be the ray of hope for this country left devastated? Sunflowers in Fukushima How Fukushima became contaminated Similar in severity to Chernobyl’s 1986 Nuclear Disaster, in March, 2011, Fukushima and the surrounding area went into crisis. Fukushima was hit hard with an earthquake followed by a tsunami which breached the power plant and lead to disaster. With safety measures catastrophically failing, pressure was building in Fukushima Daiichi and engineers had no choice but to open the unfiltered vents to release the pressure from the reactor (Bunn / Heinonen, 2011). Overall the disaster was a series of safety failures, equipment failures and nuclear meltdown which all resulted in the release of radioactive materials into the environment. Consequences of contaminated soil Soil containing radioactive isotopes is particularly concerning to humans in the immediate area. Due to the agricultural aspect of Fukushima,......

...The Sunflower is a first person account of a Jew living in a concentration camp during the Holocaust confronted with the question, when such an atrocity has been committed is it possible for a person to forgive? Throughout Simon flashes between the present in the concentration camp, back to his recent past, even further to his time as a youth. Selected to work outside of the camp one day Simon and others were marched through the town. Along the way he noticed a graveyard for Nazi soldiers and above each grave, a sunflower, had been planted. Upon seeing this, he experienced envy for the soldiers who were still connected to “the living world”(Wiesenthal, 1998, p. 14). Simon indicated his desensitization to death, but upon seeing the graves with flowers and knowing when he died, he would be placed in an unmarked grave with no flowers to tie him to this world, he felt bitterness along with a small hope that he “would come across them again; that they were a symbol with a special meaning”(Wiesenthal, 1998, p. 15). Arriving to the work site, Simon is approached by a nurse inquiring if he was Jewish. Acknowledging this, she took him to a room that had been transformed into a sickroom for Karl, a dying SS soldier. Karl’s story began with his youth and Catholic upbringing and he joined the Hitler Youth and SS willingly. He then gave his account of the crime he committed and was so desperately seeking forgiveness for. Simon listened silently to the murder of more Jews and walked...

...old Price Forecast 2013 Predictions and Estimates from Multiple Analysts The Gold price forecast for the year 2013 has been covered by multiple analysts. Here is their consensus: While the price of Gold has a gamut of forecast ranges for 2013, most experts remain bullish on the yellow metal for the year, though some have scaled back their estimates slightly over the past few months. A compilation of their predictions are listed below. Bank of America Merrill Lynch In a December 2012 report, Bank of America Merrill Lynch stated that Gold would average $2,000 in 2013, with the metal climbing to $2,400 in 2014. “Large-scale policy easing by the U.S. Federal Reserve and European Central Bank positions Gold as a useful hedge against global macro and inflation risks taking the commodity to $2000/ oz levels”, said the bank. The bank added that, “We have a sixmonth [Gold price] target of $2000 an ounce, but see scope as well for prices to rise to $2400 an ounce by the end of 2014. These targets reflect our view that the Fed will maintain mortgage purchases until the end of 2014 and will move to buy Treasuries following the end of Operation Twist in December 2012.” BNP Paribas BNP Paribas expects Gold to average $1,865 an ounce for the year. “Market sentiment towards Gold has been much more uncertain in 2012 than was the case in previous years. Yet, we expect Gold to achieve a new record high in 2013 due to further monetary easing, less tail risk related to a breakup of the......

...contracting. The Chicago Board of Trade was the first commodity exchange in the United States of America to be opened in 1848, and is still the largest exchange as well. The futures contract was developed here in the 1860s. The New York Cotton Exchange founded in 1871 was also among few other early United States exchanges. During the Great Depression of 1933, the Commodity Exchange, Inc. was established. It was started in New York and by the merger of four smaller exchanges - the National Raw Silk Exchange, the Rubber Exchange of New York, the National Metal Exchange, and the New York Hide Exchange. India has a link with the commodities market as India is an agro based economy and is the largest consumer of gold, which provides a huge market for both Agri-commodities and gold. India has a huge spot market for all these commodities E.g. Indore has a huge market for soya, Ahmadabad for castor seeds, etc. During pre-independence period also there was a demand for these commodities. In the mid 1960’s due to war, natural calamities, etc the trade of these commodities was banned in India....

Sunflower Corporation

...Sunflower Inc. is a distribution company that operates in twenty-two regions with in United States and Canada. The company distributes national as well as local brands and packages some items under private labels. The organization promotes autonomous management style because local tastes and practices vary. The company identifies a problem in the form of high profit variation across the regions as well as the use of lesser quality products. Loretta Williams is hired from the finance department into a position newly created, as Director of Purchasing and Pricing to work toward the standardization of process and tries to implement change but ultimately encounters bitter resistance. This is because the proposal involved major changes to the organization’s purchasing and pricing processes and she did not use the right strategies for managing or communicating the change process. The change Williams wanted to install at Sunflower was a good one and necessary but she chose the wrong medium of email, which is comparatively a less rich means of communication for these kinds of issues with major consequences. The managers could have misunderstood why such policy was needed when they were all making profit and they did not know who was implementing these changes. Prior to William’s arrival the organization was running on a decentralized organizational structure where regional executives had freedom to make their own decisions but with the new change, their autonomy was decreased and......

...Gold Anonymous. Metal Bulletin Monthly 418 (Oct 2005): 50-51. Abstract (summary) Pure - or 1,000 thousandths - gold is equivalent to 24 carats, but gold is generally used as an alloy because it is such a soft metal. The jewellers' terms "fine gold" and "pure gold" mean 920 and 840 thousandth alloys respectively, the balance being supplied by copper. The addition of copper produces red and pink golds, while deep yellow gold is practically 100% pure and "white gold" is often a gold alloy containing nickel and palladium.

Full Text Gold is among the oldest metals known to mankind, over whom it has often exerted a compelling force of attraction because of its rarity, lustrous beauty and permanence. A sun-yellow ductile metallic element, gold mostly occurs as nuggets in rocks and alluvial deposits. It has a high melting point (1,063°C) and is one of the best conductors of heat and electricity, as well as being resistant to corrosion, except from chlorine, fluorine and aqua regia acid. It is one of the densest elements at 19.3 g/cm^sup...

The Sunflower

...George Makreas Prof. Christopher Dowling ENG 100 T-TH G00848186 The Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness The Holocaust will always be remembered by the world as a period where human evil was most prevalent, and where millions of innocent lives were taken in cold blood. It doesn’t matter whether your ancestors were involved, or if you were around to experience it, you only have to be human in order to feel for all of the people who were affected. Over the years studies like Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, and Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Study have shed light on some of the basic roots of human evil, but these roots are not enough to pave the way for forgiveness of the events that occurred. Simon Wiesenthal’s story “The Sunflower” exploits these evils and presently brings us into the life and character of Simon, a Jew in a concentration camp in Poland, who has ultimately been sentenced to death for just being born the way he is. He is brought to the bed of a dying SS Nazi soldier named Karl, who after telling him of his life decisions, asks for forgiveness as his dying wish. Simon leaves the soldier in silence, and we never find out if he ever truly forgives him. But Wiesenthal does leave us all with the question of what we would do in his position. With such brutalizing and horrific events, the atrocities that Karl commits are unforgivable because he willingly participates to take the lives of innocent people, which are acts that cannot be undone. ...

...government. Gold has real value due to its beauty, usefulness, and scarcity. * With a fiat currency the government can essentially manufacture money virtually out of nowhere. Since leaving the gold standard in 1971 US currency in circulation increased from $48.6 billion to over $1 trillion dollars in 2012. Between 1971 and 2003 the entire supply of money in the United States has increased by 1,100%. Under a gold standard, new money could only be printed if a corresponding amount of gold were available to back the currency. * Since leaving the gold standard in 1971, inflation has reduced the value of the dollar, and inflated the price of oil about 32 fold. In 1973, Saudi Arabia agreed to trade oil only in dollars. This created a new international demand for the fiat dollars the Fed was now printing and as more dollars flooded the world, general inflation in oil prices followed. When on a partial gold standard in the 1950s and 1960s the nominal price of oil was stable, averaging $2.90 a barrel. By June 2008 the nominal price of oil hit $126.33 per barrel * Since gold is a finite natural material, and must be mined and processed at a significant cost, it tends to be produced at levels consistent with demand. Under a gold standard, creating more currency requires obtaining more gold, which raises golds market price and stimulates increased mining. More gold is then used to back more money until a point when currency levels are adequate, the price of gold levels out,......

In my opinion, Sunflower Incorporated could have been placed in Phase 3 of Greiner’s phases of growth. Phase 3 being: Growth Through Delegation, which the phase ends with a Control Crisis: A much more sophisticated head office function is required, and the separate parts of the business need to work together. I will focus with Phase 3: Growth through Delegation. In this phase, as mid-level managers are free to react fast to opportunities for new products or in new markets, the organization continues to grow, with top management just monitoring and dealing with big issues—“Sunflower Incorporated is a large distribution company with more than 5,000 employees and gross sales of more than $550 million (2003)”. We learned from the case that there were twenty-two regions for Sunflower Inc. Each region had its regional executive or manager, and each had its own profit center. This is similar to each region of the company being treated as a separate business. Each had its own central warehouse, salespeople, finance department, and purchasing department and their profits and losses for a profit center are calculated separately. Each regional manager is focused for the region they are responsible and have their own processes for delivering products or offerings that offer value for the......
