Part-1 - Email Proposal from Project Group to Chairman of Cockatoo Real Estate Pty Ltd

To

This business mail has been framed to the Chairman of Cockatoo Real Estate Pty Ltd for the consultancy for viability of opening branches in Sydney. After analysing the profitability, break-even point, financial viability return on capital employed available on the invested capital, it is found that company should accept the project of opening up its 10 pilot branch Camper down in Sydney as it will give good amount of return on capital employed to investors. However, in order to assess the viability of the project, we need to take the access to an empty retail premises for a pilot investigation. The main reason for getting access to the empty retail premises for the pilot investigation is based on the mock up a simulation branch and analysing the available business factors which may positively and negatively impact the project. It will also help in analysing whether the undertaken office equipment and infrastructure would be complying with the international WHS legislation laws and regulation.  Action required by the board of directors- all the directors needs to pass special resolution in the board meeting for giving their consents on the particular events and matter. There will be other points as the research would be made on the internal and external factors for analysing the viability for the project proposal. The estimated time for the report to be submitted would be 6 months which will required to analysis the all the feasible factors associated with the project.

Thanks for considering the mail and looking forward to the positive reply

I am requesting to allow us to get the access to the empty retail premises for the pilot investigation. Part-2

This report will analysis the review the financial viability and possible benefits which company would have after opening up other inner suburban branches in Sydney over the next 12 months. It will be used to identify the feasible factors which might impact the acceptance of the project.

This report is accompanied with potential issue, challenges, financial viability and related financial returns and opportunities for opening up of pilot branch in Camper down and if successful will open 10 other inner suburban branches in Sydney over the next 12 months.  The acceptance of this project would be based on the break-even point, financial viability return on capital employed available on the invested capital.

The financial projection and estimation of the profit and loss associated with the particular project reflects how company could be benefited after undertaking the proposed project. The estimated listing sales per year have been decided on the basis competitors offering and market external factors.

Part-2 - Long Report to Assess the Viability of Opening Branches in Sydney

The main marketing plan to acquire a pipeline of the properties to be marketed would be to become official pipeline marketers. It would allow company to use attributable model which will be used to revenue back up line through all the activities that involved in creating the lead’s journey through the marketing funnel,

The lead, prospects and customers would be three key themes for the marketing plan to acquire a pipeline of the properties to be marketed

Tope of funnel- Generate leads

It would be one by reaching as many clients as Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited could. It would be done by using the strategic alliance, using online marketing and joint ventures in Sydney.

Middle of funnel- Nurturing prospects

Focus on business to business so that that existing business organization who is already working in this industry could outsource their work to Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited.

Bottom of funnel- Converting leads to clients

After finding the potential clients from the undertaken sources, Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited should focus on converting the leads into clients.

This marketing plan focuses on keeping every concerned person of team vigilant about the steps taken marketing initiatives. The markeing measures which could be used by management would be competitor’s sales, available opportunity and potential clients.

After that, management could use the possible marketing channels to communicate with the clients in market. This could be use of online marketing, cyber computing system and loyalty card approach to spread the information about the offered service to clients.

Another marketing plan to acquire the pipeline of properties to be marketed would be entering into the strategic alliance such as joint venture, merger and amalgamation. It would allow Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited to easily grab the potential market in effective manner.

The risk management plan for setting up new 10 branches in Sydney would be as below.

Identify the risk- The management of Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited would need to identify the risk of the particular project such as arrangement of the finance, marketing risk, operation risk and other related risk which may be found due to the internal and external busienss factors.

Assess the risk- In this case; Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited might face risk of setting up coordination in the process and arranging the proper capital for financing the new project.  These risk falls under high probability of the risk case (Ibn-Homaid, and. Tijani. 2015, 80-86).

Formulate the risk management plan- In order to mitigate these risks, Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited could either transfer this risk by taking the insurance cover or reduce the risk by lower down the financial leverage of project.

Implementing the risk management strategies- Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited needs to lower down the debt portion and also needs to take the insurance cover to eliminate the uncertainty.

Follow up- This is the end step which helps Cockatoo Real Estate Private Limited to consistently check-up the undertaken programs and strategies

Conclusion

As per the projection, it would be beneficial for company to strengthen its business outcomes if it accept the proposal to set up opening up of pilot branch in Camper down and if successful will open 9 other inner suburban branches in Sydney over the next 12 months.
