SWOT ANALYSIS

As a company, we look forward to leveraging our advantages and strengths while simultaneously avoiding dangers and threats. Here is the SWOT analysis that was carried out;

STRENGTHWEAKNESS
  Our strengths include excellent customer service, cost benefits, client loyalty, and a solid strength among domestic industry participants.   The company was able to serve a larger market share because of its flexible and extensive variety of services.      The sector is price sensitive due to the industry’s fierce rivalry and the market’s fragmented character.
OPPORTUNITYTHREAT
  Online marketplaces, new technologies, new services, and the opening of new markets are opportunities accessible to us as trucking firms in the United States.   The business can expand its products internationally.  Mature markets, global politics, fierce rivalry, and rising fuel costs are some threats we’ll probably have to deal with.   Any nation’s trade laws modification will affect the company’s operation.

Objectives

  • To develop a market for people who are relocating and need the assistance of a trucking firm to transport their furniture and other possessions to their new home. 
  • To obtain local business to establish your reputation. 
  • To advertise to more businesses that need transportation services from their production facilities to distribution hubs and to assist companies that need to move items.

Founder

Kevin Cetrone
Chief Operating Officer(Owner) 

He came from humble beginnings. He was raised in Colorado and learned the virtue of perseverance at a very early age. When he and his family had to move back to his hometown, but the moving costs were too high, he purchased a box truck for $15K and hired some contractors to assist him with the hard lifting. He still had the box truck after he had settled in Denver, but instead of selling it, he chose to rent it to his neighbors. Ironically,  Kevin used that box truck as a starting point for their moving business. Kevin then grew Ctrone Xpress Transport into what it is today by making a few additional box truck purchases (and persuading others to join him). His enthusiasm for the business comes from his commitment to connecting people and ideas. He consults with companies on how to do business in transportation and trucking.

Marketing Budget

Total budget for projected years:

The following graphs indicate budget allocation across projected years:

Marketing Channels

Social Media: We want to take advantage of Facebook and Instagram. To start, we’ll advertise content and deals to get more followers. After reaching a particular number of followers, our sponsored and organic campaigns will combine. Due to growing competition, the CAC for this channel will likewise rise with time.

Google Ads: this will aid in raising awareness, boosting sales, and early content quality testing. Since there won’t be many visitors at first, Google Analytics stats will assist us in drawing traffic and gauging how our target market will respond. In turn, this will enable us to assess the level of our material. Due to growing competition, the CAC for this channel will likewise rise with time.

In turn, this will enable us to assess the level of our material. Due to growing competition, the CAC for this channel will likewise rise with time.

Email Marketing: Due to the short email list and the lack of initial material on our site, our first budget allocation for this channel will be relatively minimal. Email marketing will be our primary emphasis beginning in the second year. As greater competition has no effect, the CAC for this channel will stay steady over time.

In-person Marketing: Marketing staff will visit companies, event hosts, and other pertinent venues to raise awareness among stakeholders. As we need to build awareness via word of mouth, we will initially set aside a bigger budget for this channel. After first contact with stakeholders, communication may be continued using a more cost-effective method, which will cause the customer acquisition cost (CAC) for this channel to decline continuously.

Event Sponsorship: Either we can get in touch with these event planners, or we can arrange our events. By offering discount coupons and using other promotional strategies, these events will enable us to increase brand recognition and sales.

Content Marketing: Content creation will take the form of blog entries, YouTube videos, Quora responses, social media postings, etc. We will undertake keyword research to write articles based on specific keywords with a large search volume and low keyword difficulty. The CAC for this channel will rise over time due to heightened competition.
