4.3 Industry Analysis

In the United States all shoppers for hardware and repair products are done on a local basis. The industry is dominated by two large chains Lowe’s and Home Depot. For our local shoppers, there are no large chain hardware stores within a 15-mile radius of our location. The Company distinguishes itself from the competition by offering customized personal service to its customers.

The Company will begin operations with a solid local customer base to build growth in future years as the existing hardware store has been in this location for many years. Skillful use of advertising and strong communication will bring the business the Company desires.

With no large chain store within a 15-mile radius, [COMPANY NAME] will advertise and capture the local market.

5.0 Web Plan Summary

[COMPANY NAME] website will be an opportunity to offer current information on service offerings, company background, announcements and special discounts. The website will be another method to generate steady business in our area.
Currently, the Company has been in conversation with several persons qualified to provide an attractive and exciting web page; however, the Company hasn't made a final decision. The Company is only considering web designers that are residents of the Fairfield/Pickaway County community. The Company feels very strongly in keeping its funds within the community

5.1 Website Marketing Strategy

Our website will be promoted on all of our marketing materials and during our advertising campaigns. We will advertise our site on our business cards as well as in other industry related publications.
As numerous studies have documented, most people buy based on the conversation and recommendations of trusted friends, family and colleagues. Finding the people that influence their peers' decisions where to shop and what to buy has long been viewed as the Holy Grail of marketing. Increasingly, online social networks are being seen as venues for locating these influencers. The Company plans to tie-into social media sites to expand our presence on the web to our targeted customers.
