1. Purpose
- The Home Studio wants to increase public awareness, increase
retail sales, and build more relationships with designers.
- A plan is needed because it gives an outline of what is expected
from us and how we will accomplish the goals set.
- This client exists to supply consultation and home furnishings that
will help customers create a home that represents their own
lifestyles.
- With this plan, The Home Studio would like to increase retail sales
and build more relationships with interior designers.

3. Place
- On location at The Home Studio store front at
3850 29th St. SE Suite G
Kentwood, MI 49512
- This plan may be done off site as well.

2. People
- The Home Studios target audience are designers and Grand
Rapids consumers (no specific age/ gender)

4. Time Frame

7. Message
- We want to communicate that The Home Studio is a reliable
supplier of any interior design needs.

5. Circumstance
-Best case is we reach the target audience and we increase the retail
sales for this business.
- Weather can impact a plan as people are less likely to journey out
in bad weather.
- Other community events or competition can draw away from the
event or promotion of The Home Studio.

6. Medium
- The best way to communicate depends on the viewer. We will
probably want to do a radio as most moms will listen to that as they
take their kids places or go to work.
-Tv or magazines could be utilized as older women tend to watch
more tv and have the time to read more newspapers than younger
women do.
-Social Media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest)

- This company is a based off consulting services and is now


offering a retail storefront with more services.

8. Results
- We anticipate helping The Home Studio to increase in customers
- We will measure our results through the analytics of the Facebook
page (number of likes, number of interactions, number of website
clicks)
- Help build more relationships with designers
