Target Market
The target customer of Five-Star Cleaning Services is between 35-55 years of age, owns or rents high-end property, and prioritizes high standards for the look, feel,
and cleanliness of their home. Ideally, this customer has a household income of $70,000+ and is looking for between 2-5 house cleanings per month. Our market also
knows that while our service comes at a price, investing in a cleaner, safer living environment is worth the additional expense. For the customer who pays in full
upfront for our services, we offer discounted rates, but also have weekly payment plans in place for those who prefer to pay as they go. The ideal customer,
understands that transforming the cleanliness of their home is an investment in their quality of life and a step towards protecting their future. Our clients are
looking for a one-step solution to expediting their cleaning goals, and know that our hospitable staff and all natural, eco-friendly cleaning agents are the methods to
achieve them. Our target market’s end goal is to maintain a safe, clean living environment they can call home—and rest assured is kind to both their families and our
world.
Market Size
The upper-class family is defined as people or couples who earn over $126,000 a year. Around 21.1% of American families are in this category (The Tipping Point.
2015). That comes out to be around 51.2 million families in America. According to research by the US national center for health science at least 1 in 3 people have
allergies, asthma, sinusitis, and bronchitis caused by synthetic chemicals in household cleaners (Non-Toxic Home, n.d.). That means that of the 51.2 million families
17.06 million families across America need our services and likely don’t use a cleaning service because of the fear of using chemical based or toxic cleaners.
SWOT Analysis
We have our own patented blend of cleaning products. We have highly trained and insured housekeepers. We have strategies in place to keep abreast of any changes in the
external environment that would affect our business, and a creative team to create and implement new techniques and strategies. We have a very narrow target market. We
have high overhead costs because we create and package our cleaning products ourselves, as well as pay for the labor of both the factory workers and the housekeepers.
Our prices are high as a result.
Our biggest competitor does not have much of a presence in the western half of the United States (Green Cleaning, n.d.). We have the option to eventually sell our
cleaning products in stores to open up our market potential. We also have the option to expand internationally. There are other cleaning companies already established
who also offer eco-friendly products, and some at a lower cost to include the middle-class market. If the economy falters, we may lose a portion of our current
customers and/or potential customers. Being a luxury service, our company will not survive if the economy completely crashes.

4 Ps of Marketing
Product/ Services
The main service that is offered by Five-Star Cleaning Services Company is home-cleaning services. In this respect, the organization provides abroad range of
packages under the domestic category. Examples include cleaning homes and washing services such as laundry. The organization’s goal is to provide excellent services
that meet consumer needs.
Price
Five-Star Company’s pricing strategy is dependent upon the magnitude of services that are offered. For instance, houses that have a standard surface area of
400 square meters are priced at $200. Pricing also depends on the number of items that are cleaned and the nature of complexity of the services to be provided. This
also depends on the number of hours.
Distribution
Distribution strategies affect the geographical influence of a firm (Jacobson, 2013).The services that Five-Star offers will be limited to the national levels.
This means that markets that are beyond the country’s national frontiers are still not covered. However, the organization plans to expand its reach so that it can
target international markets.
Promotion
In order to ensure that the organization’s services attract as many clients as possible, various promotional strategies will be employed. For instance,
advertisements will be used at different channels such as social media, television, and print media platforms such as newspapers and magazines. Discounts and special
offers will also be provided to lock in loyal customers.

Mini Project 3 Urban Ecology

Mini Project 3 Urban Ecology

Case Study:

Five years ago you moved to an up-and-coming area in your city. When you moved there, the neighborhoods were surrounded by vast wooded areas. Recently, you’ve noticed that the wooded areas are being removed to make way for new housing. Many animals are getting hit by cars or found roaming around the neighborhoods in search of food. You’ve decided to create an Urban Ecology Program in your city and ask the city government to protect the remaining forest areas.

Using the library or the Internet, thoroughly research established urban ecology programs in the United States. Create a mission statement that outlines your proposal to preserve the natural habitat around your area.

Two topic of choice essay papers, each three- to four-pages in length not including cover and Reference paper will be completed during the course 8 weeks. You may select a topic focus from any of the 8 topics, list below for reference, covered across the course 8 weeks for each of the two topic of choice papers. Submitting work already completed for assignments (papers or forums) earlier in the course or that only expands on the same topic addressed in an earlier assignment is not permitted but you may submit a paper that approaches an earlier assignment topic from a different angle (ex: if you completed an assignment about PTSD in combat veterans or other issues faced by military personnel, you may submit a topic of choice essay on challenges faced by families of military veterans returning from combat deployments and resources made available to them by the mental health profession).

This assignment must be submitted as an attachment in APA format.

Any content copied from published resources and not in quotation marks (and quoting must be done very sparsely–one or two brief quotes per page are permitted–because your prof needs to assess the meaning you made from and your knowledge acquired when engaging with published materials not your ability to quote writing already done by published authors) or paraphrasing (restating what you read in your own words) of publications not correctly source credited will void the paper points without option for revision and resubmission to recoup lost points and a second instance of plagiarism on any assignment automatically resulting in course failure. This policy is in place to protect the integrity of APUS graduate courses and the legal rights of published authors.
