Extract A Online presence is essential for modern businesses Ryan Daniels started Hydra Creative, a company that provides services including bespoke website design, online advertising and business ... stationery design. It makes use of business to business (B2B) marketing. High demand caused Hydra Creative to grow rapidly. Ryan needed to take on employees to cope with the workload and quickly changed from being a sole trader to a private limited company with his wife, Gemma, as a shareholder and director. He now has 18 team members and offices in Sheffield and London. Responding to customer feedback, Ryan and Gemma have improved promotion of the company, ensuring that sales for traditional services, such as stationery design, do not fall into the decline stage of the product life cycle.

Extract B Global demand for coconut is booming Founder and CEO of Ape Snacks, Zack Nathan, dropped out of university to start a healthy snack company focusing on coconut-based products. Ape Snacks aims to encourage the average person to eat a better diet, whilst operating as an environmentally responsible business. In the past decade, the global demand for coconut has grown by 500%. During the same time a series of celebrity endorsements and sponsorships have relaunched coconut as a ‘superfood’. In addition to demand for coconut oil and coconut water, strong niche markets are also emerging for coconut-based snacks. However, many coconut producing countries are struggling to keep up with demand due to ageing coconut trees, which produce fewer coconuts. Estimates suggest that 1 billion new trees need to be planted to keep up with demand. 5 10 11 *P61842A01124* Turn over 2 (a) State two examples of entrepreneurial motives.

Write your answer in the space provided. Extract C Jamie Oliver hits hard times In 2017, Jamie Oliver blamed intense competition and rising costs, such as ingredients and rent, for the closure of six of his Italian restaurants. Accounts for 2016 showed the business had slumped to a £9.9m loss from a profit of £2.4m a year earlier. At the same time Byron, the burger chain, had to be rescued financially after expanding too quickly. The problems at Jamie’s Italian restaurants reflect the wider market for casual dining. In recent years consumers have spent more on eating out, but a large number of new restaurant openings led to intense competition. Peter Martin, vice-president at the food and drink consultancy CGA, says, “savvy operators such as Nando’s and JD Wetherspoon have remained successful by adapting to changing tastes. With this much choice in the market, customers will choose other options unless you stay fresh and relevant. When Jamie came on to the scene it was new and exciting; they were taking samples outside for people to try which was innovative. However, more and more businesses are doing that sort of thing now.” 5 10 (Source adapted from: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/feb/16/not-so-fresh-why-jamieoliver-restaurants-lost-their-bite) 19 *P61842A01924* Turn over 3 To prevent further business failure Jamie could either reduce costs or adapt to market changes. Evaluate these two options and recommend which option is most likely to prevent further business failure. (20) 20 *P61842A02024* 21 *P61842A02124* [Show More]
