...service. For example; one of the products sold in the store could be known to the public differently to what it is actually called. Because you have the knowledge off this, if the customer asks for the product you know exactly what they want. Experience of specific industry; it helps to have this experience as it helps you understand the backroom running of the business and you can estimate the managers’ expectations and aspirations. Effectiveness in meeting personal and team/departmental targets; It is vital to be effective at meeting targets, because at the end of the day that is what you are expected to do or you are not liable for the position. The requirements the managers set you and the team must be met for the store to keep growing financially and in popularity, depending on the targets. Ability to observe and raise professional standards of production/service delivery; if you own this ability it will not only help the store but yourself a great deal too. This is because you would look at an experienced member of your team and observe what they do and take this on-board. This will hope you grow within the business as a vital member of the team. Personal skills: Patient; you will have to be patient, especially when just starting a new job. When you start you will more than likely to not be doing exactly what you expected to be doing.

...unit 3 p1 Tumblr Tumblr is a popular social media site that offers users the chance to create and run their own blog. It was globally branded by a trademark “T” for Tumblr. It competes with the likes of twitter, Facebook and Instagram on the global market. Since it formed on 2007; it hosts over 225.1 million blogs. In order to achieve this Tumblr has used marketing techniques such as branding and market relationship. Tumblr aims to provide a service that allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. Tumblr was created on the ideals of free speech and independent journalism to try and get away from the mainstream media. It also aims to provide a support network for people dealing with mental health issues and is also used as a generic blogging site. The marketing aims and objectives of Tumblr are to become a market leader within the next 10 years. A key step towards this was on 20th may 2013. The business was sold to Yahoo a large search engine for $1.1billion.They have expanded their target audience by producing mobile apps for smartphones on all platforms. This increased their user percentage by as much as 70,000 users within the first weeks. the marketing concept puts the customer at the centre of all decisions before the product of service is developed. this can make Tumblr more efficient by focusing investment on products that customers will need and use rather than investing in products that customers may not buy.

...products is because the business has secured a 3% market share in the Chinese market and have products already existing. The market share has been achieved because of the business’s high quality British brand, which the business is hoping to achieve 5% market share from the advertising campaign in China. The budget which they had formed for marketing shows that the budget has increased from 2% to 20% showing that it is obviously effectively working and they can see more potential with growth for the long term for business shown in Appendix C of 2011-2015 with market growth in China rising to 10%. However the business will have to diverse their products since they are entering a new market. However with their research they are able to determine a rise in growth in the Chinese economy. This shows that they are able to expand within the market and potentially gain more market share as growth rises and more wants and needs to provide. However within the forecast and actual sales, the actual forecast for 2005 was only 1% growth in China and 2.5% EU. However the Chinese economy having grown from a predicted forecast of 1% to 10% shows a 9% forecast predicted increase. This could be a over prediction and may not be truthful so could potentially be a fake estimate. While in the EU forecast, the predicted value could be accurate since it isn’t as much more as the actual in 2005 so seems more reliable. Overall in conclusion there are many points for why the business should provide......

...Unit 3 M2 Tesco M2: Explain the limitations of marketing research used to contribute to the development of a selected organization’s marketing plans. Tesco marketing team experienced some limitations during this market research. One of the limitations of market research to Tesco is cost. It is expensive to organize primary research. For example, it costs a lot to print out questionnaires and pay people to carry out the research. Also, it is expensive to conduct focus group. This affects the profit of Tesco as they have to pay for everything related to making questionnaires and then analyzing their results. A secondary research is a lot cheaper as they will have to collect data from already existing sources and previous data, so it will cost less and it will be done quicker. Another limitation of market research is validity. Validity is the degree of accuracy of the measurement. The information collected must always be valid, otherwise Tesco cannot use it and it is pointless to collect the information which is not valid. Some of the ways in which Tesco are limited by validity are, for example using questionnaires, because people might not give the right information; using interviews, because people might feel shy or intimidated to say their true opinion during the interview; using focus groups, because people might not feel comfortable due to fear of discrimination to say what’s on their mind; using internet, because it changes constantly, so information obtained might......

...Unit 3- P3 Different types of research Primary Primary research is new research, carried out to answer specific issues or questions. It can involve questionnaires, surveys or interviews with individuals or small groups. Secondary Secondary research (Also known as desk research) involves gathering existing data that has already been produced. For example, researching the internet, newspapers and company reports. Qualitative Qualitative research is about finding out not just what people think but why they think it. It’s about getting people to talk about their opinions so you can understand their motivations and feelings. Quantitative Quantitative research is about asking people for their opinions in a structured way so that you can produce hard facts and statistics to guide you. To get reliable statistical results, it’s important to survey people in fairly large numbers and to make sure they are a representative sample of your target market.

...Describe how legislation and accounting concepts affect an organisation’s accounting policies. In this report I will be describing how legislation and accounting concepts, could affect a business company’s accounting policies. I will also be talking what Acts contain, concepts and their importance, and also accounting policies. I will be supporting my work with examples. Legislation is the law that has been made and also enacted by a legal or another government body and it is used to regulate, proscribe and provide. (Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legislation accessed on 23/01/2015) Companies Act 1985 contains important documents. The important financial statements are Directors’ report, auditors’ report, and duty to prepare operating and financial review, approval and signing of operating and financial review. This statement has to be signed by the board of directors, as well as behalf of the board of directors. Partnership Act 1890 is another document which contains important documentation. The important documents that have to be in this Act are the name and position of all the partners in the organisation, ratio of profit and loss sharing, the capital that each partner has brought into the business, power of each partner. It is important to know what power each partner has in the business, because some partners might not be able to do activities like their partner. Accounting concepts Accounting concepts are the rules in accounting. These rules must be......

...and purpose. Organizations need to meet the needs of their owners, the stakeholders, and the customers. Some are created to make profit, some are charity, and others are governmental created to serve society. 1. Public Sector, Government organizations exist to serve society, economic development of the country and defense e.g. NHS Healthcare system, the police force. Services are provided despite the individuals ability to pay for them. They are usually funded by the government through taxation. 2. Sole Trader usually has a business which meets the needs of the community. The organization is run by the individual to earn a profit. E.g. window cleaner, newsagent. Sole traders need to make sure the goods they sell or service they provide is available at all times. It is important that a sole trader has a good relationship with the customers and the suppliers. 3. Partnership –usually more than one owner. All have an equal share in the business and assets. All share the responsibility and accountability. Usually the workload is also shared. Partnership businesses also rely on good customer relationships and satisfaction. E.g. law firm with 2 or more partners or doctors. 4. Charitable organizations are set up to help those who are poor or out of work. They do not earn a profit. These organizations can provide a service or help provide goods. Usually are run by voluntary staff. 5. Companies & corporations e.g. apple, Samsung. Usually are owned by......
