NatureCare Products

Promotional activities briefing report


NatureCare Products is based in Brisbane, Australia. The company manufactures and retails eco-friendly, high quality beauty skin care products. The business was established in 2011 to cater for a perceived demand for skin products that contain eco-friendly and natural ingredients. The company also has an emphasis on eco-friendly packaging. Currently the business is selling its products through a limited number of health stores in Brisbane but would like to expand within Brisbane, as well as interstate. It has a web site but no shopping cart. The web site does not appear to be frequently visited, which appears to be because of a lack of SEO optimisation.

NatureCare Products’ overall business objectives for the next three years are to increase sales and create brand awareness.

The company currently has a range of products that includes:

  • Cleansing creams to soothe skin during make-up removal. Primary ingredients include Shea butter to nourish the skin and plants extracts that are also rich in essential oils with regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties. This product will be for delicate and mature skins and could also be used as a baby cream.
  • Multi Protection Day Moisturizing Creams for dry to normal skin types that help protect the skin during the day and includes Shea butter and extracts from fragile green algae that provides hydrating and protective properties.
  • Regenerating facial scrub to clean off dead skin cells to promote regeneration of healthy new cells. This product will be used for most skin types.
  • The company would like to add more products over time and is focused on a range of products to meet particular skin needs rather than a one-size fits all.

    Planning process

    Being a new company, NatureCare Products has a limited budget for promotional activities and wishes to focus on promotional activities that are the most effective but that do not require a large budget. A budget of $5,000 has been allocated to some initial promotional activities.

    The management team of NatureCare Products has advised that that the objectives of conducting promotional activities is to be linked to an overall business objective of increasing sales revenue by 50% in the next 12 months. Currently with the products only sold in a few health stores across Brisbane, total sales are fairly small. NatureCare Products also wishes to create awareness of its products amongst consumers and to position itself as a quality product against similar products. The price for the product will be around the same as competitors’ prices for similar products.

    The management team has also advised that it definitely wishes to improve its online marketing and is interested in using social media for promotional activities, as well as national and local business networks such as the local Chamber of Commerce.
