Mission Statement:
Allstar Brands’ over-the-counter cold and allergy remedy Allround will continue to be a leader in the market for over-the-counter cold medicines, and will remain competitive in stock price among our other companies within a ten year span of operations. This goal will be accomplished through the careful surveillance of our top competitors, as well as through strategic planning to evolve our product to suit the desires and needs of consumers. The branding team will control the financial growth of our product by implementing cautious pricing and promotion strategies, while increasing our distribution to where our consumers will be most likely to purchase it. Marketing Strategies:

• Objective #1: Increase the stock price by 5% each year until 100% overall increase o Through effective advertising and promotions the consulting group desires to increase the stock price annually. • Objective #2: Increase loyal customers by 15%

o Through promotions and allowances it is desired to gain the loyalty of customers who have not yet made Allround purchases. Reminder advertising will be used to maintain the loyalty of consumers who have used the Allround brand in the past. • Objective #3: Increase sales by 50% by focusing on targeting a diverse consumer base o Target different audiences through the use of different advertising agencies.
