3.1. A SWOT analysis will help emphasize exactly what we are doing right or wrong. It will provide us an insight on what the company is good at, and in what areas ‘dermes’ could use assistance. Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) are described below:

  1. Strengths
    There are 16 -year history of ‘dermes’ since 1999. ‘dermes’ have good reputation because the Company provides a forever promise to customers. If you join a package in ‘dermes’, you have no limited to use the package as you like. Many company provide limited services to customers not as same as ‘dermes’. Customers have more confidence in ‘dermes’ because they promise will help customers work the problems out. You only pay for one time, your package can use forever. This is a strong selling point. Also, they provide a good services all the time such as they with content you when you finish the treatment after three day, like a friend to chat with you and ask how the feeling about the treatment. Not only provide a nice environmentally, but also provide a free snack and tea to customers. Some people are afraid ‘dermes’ just advertising effect to attract customers. In fact, ‘dermes’s’ staff are professional because they request their staff have test every year. If the staff cannot pass the test, company will request them go to training class again until pass the test.

  1. Weakness
    About the weakness, ‘dermes’ not enough diversification because it only provide epilation services. They are not selling the beauty product to customers to earn more money as same as other company. ‘dermes’ think provide beauty product to customers are including in package because company have responsibility to take care customers. This way can help ‘dermes’ to build up a well business image but the profit are depending on how many epilation package you sold. In the other hand, some people are not willing choose the ‘dermes’ because they think the course fee are too expensive than other company. They are preferred to choice low quality and cheaper. In fact, dermes's braches are set up in causeway, admiralty and central. The salary and rent express are high than other place so their course are expensive. So, competitors are willing to provide cheaper price for course to increase their market share.
  2. Opportunities
    ‘dermes’ invite Annie Liu(劉心悠) become their spokesperson since 1999. It can built up a positive image in the business so many people have more confidences in ‘dermes’. Even though ‘dermes’s’ course fee is expensive, people are willing to join a course because of the market demand. They want to be beautiful and dress they want. When you are dressing vest but you still have hair in your underarm that I think every girl will be feel embarrassed. In Hong Kong, female are more than man so it can clear to explain why the market demand are large. At the same time, ‘dermes’ use coupon to attract consumers to introduce new customers. They consider student may not afford the fee so they willing to provide student discount. The course fee is cheaper than adult but student also a second large market.
  1. Threats
    ‘Medilase’ is the first competitors of ‘dermes’ . ‘Medilase’ invite Jennifer Tse(謝婷婷) become their spokesperson and do some advertising to increase the brand reputation. The company said more people compare more people transfers and they are willing to provide a discount if you transfer from ‘dermes’ company. Also, they provide the similar course fee and said their technology is better than ‘dermes’. This way will divide the market share of ‘dermes’.
  1. Marketing Objectives
  1. To make a marketing plan to increase the sales profit
  2. To make more promotion to attract new customers
  3. To keep the existing customers
  4. To expand the market e.g not only in HK, open branch in Korea or Japan, etc.
  1. Marketing Strategies
  1. Undifferentiated (mass) marketing 

This strategy focuses on what is common in the needs of consumers rather than on what is different.

  1. Differentiated (segmented) marketing 

It decides to target several market segments and designs separate offers for each. By developing different market offers, it hopes for higher sales and a stronger position within the market segment. However, differentiated marketing can increases costs. Therefore, it must weigh increased sales against increased costs when deciding on this strategy.
