Business Plan

Introduction

1. Business Idea

In the present world people are very much attracted to ornaments and like wearing different one on each occasion. Affording a real jewellery is not under the capacities of all and only a part of total population can manage to maintain variety in real jewellery. The taken business idea is of artificial jewellery which will be available in different patterns ranging from stones to Kundan, imitation etc. it has great opportunities in the foreign market as here people do not get such products and according to the current trend people at global level like wearing ethnic items occasionally (Vos, 2010). The buyers will be given great option to choose from and it will be easy to make the purchase. Apart from the offline store there will be an online buying facility also from where potential buyers can simply surf the variety, compare the price and can select the most worth option for themselves.

The targeted customer for the products would be females of age limit 22 – 45 years. This is because they are the one who are active with trends and like experimenting different products. The business would stand for delivering great quality which is worth of its value.

The philosophy is to treat every client worth and give weightage to what she desires for. We believe that we should treat everyone with respect and honesty, provide everyone with the best quality for their money and always do what is right for the client (Nestić and Stefanović, 2015).

2. You and Why you are starting

I am an entrepreneur and recently completed my 2 year course in jewellery designing. My father is in the same field but working as an employee at a big diamond store. I was inspired to be in this sector by him only as he always knew that there is great scope of margins in it. he used to discuss how trading in this products take place and ways through which expansion of same business can be done using different platforms. He knew what is most demanded by the customers and what is in trend. Therefore, I choose to start with the artificial products as it demands comparatively less investment. During my designing course I learned different software’s to design the ornaments and this will help me at initial stage to make unique items which can attract customers. Hence with the together efforts of my theoretical and family practical knowledge there are immense chances of achieving success.

3. Market research 

3.1 The big Picture

The business will be operated in London as here people are much fashion conscious and welcome the new concepts (Sarstedt and Mooi, 2014). The major business will be carried out though online official site of the brand as this will help in reaching to maximum clients. One store will be there where orders in bulk would be taken and grievances of the customers will be met if any.

In order to found out that weather the business is going to achieve its target results it is crucial to understand its customers (Abbondante, 2010). They are the one on whom the overall success of the business depends upon. In case of this business idea the sales of other stores and trends observe in the artificial jewellery can be used to understand what opportunity does our idea has. In order to validate the idea, the brand was introduced at jewellery festival where more of soft copies were made available and those visiting the place were made familiar with them. It was observed that how many visitors are showing their interest in the new and unique designs and what are their expectations. Their feedbacks were taken and it was found that they are looking the concept of ethnic design and showing their interest. Most of them have also booked some items in advance which shows a positive response from the market. very few designs were kept at the display and all of them were sold and revenue of £54440 was made which is a good start. It shows when the brand will be launched in full it will be able to influence the sales and will give a tough rivalry.

6.3 Suppliers and third party

In order to manufacture the designs, it is important to get the raw material and for same the suppliers of raw items will be most important. It is important that cost offered by all of them are evaluated so that the one which is best suitable will be selected. apart from this small vendor of who are dealing in the same business will also be communicated to get the finished product from them as their products can be sold with own brand name and commission can be charged on each item sold (Cooper, 2015). They will be another type of the suppliers and it would be ensured that they do not compromise with eth quality as doing so will affect the brand name.

Impact on business

Mitigation and Outcome

Non availability of the raw material at desired rate

As there is lot of demand for the same material suppliers has the option to bargain the price. in case they charge very high can lead to great loss of total margins.

It is important to make bonds with at least 5 suppliers which will be time bound. This will help in marinating the uniformity in the cost and will minimise the risk of price fluctuations.

External competition

There are many entrepreneurs who are dealing in the same business and same can create great danger for this brand as any small mistake may affect the brand image to a great extent and overall sales decline noticeably if the issue become popular.

While designing the products it would be given care that it is competitive enough and do not compromise on any grounds with the other brand items.
