Pro Skin* is a local business providing a range of skincare products and toiletries.
Under the present leadership of JOHN IMAGINARY SMITH, the company is aiming to become truly innovative. What’s more, the company has recognised a growing trend towards natural/organic products.
Recently, JOHN IMAGINARY SMITH has noticed a shift in consumer thinking – he had noticed that consumers are becoming more conscious on the ingredients within products and are seeking natural alternatives. Furthermore, he had also noticed that competitors are introducing new natural products as part of their offering that are designed to meet the changing needs and wants of consumers.
Pro Skin is constantly looking for ways to meet consumer needs by growing the business and expanding its product portfolio. However, JOHN IMAGINARY SMITH has little insight into the natural/organic beauty and personal care (skincare) market.
JOHN IMAGINARY SMITH knows that he cannot disregard the recent shift in consumer thinking, he needs better information if he is to plan for the future properly. The organisation wants to know if they should invest their innovative efforts in introducing a new range of natural/organic skin care products and whether it should be a core part of their positioning.
In light of the above, JOHN IMAGINARY SMITH would like you to conduct marketing research, which will help the development of a strategic plan and move the business forward.
