1.3 Critical Success Factors

There are two keys to success that West Pacific Marketing Consultants is focused on. These are broadly characterized as Internal and External Factors, and are explained in more detail in the following two sections.

1.3.1 Internal Factors

The company feels that it controls its own success through some basic internal factors. These are:

  1. Selling and Marketing Power. The services the company provides are made attractive in order to maintain a certain percentage of B2B and B2C clients. Being a market intelligence services provider, business and market development consulting services provider, and business and sales representative, West Pacific Marketing Consultants demonstrates a successful approach in converting its reputation into an excellent brand to ensure the conversion of its clients' knowledge into their intellectual property, thus creating value for its clients.

     

  2. Excellence in fulfilling the promise. Clients do not buy features, they buy benefits. To realize a benefit, a claim must be made and proof presented. This company has had success on claim after claim. 

     

  3. Developing visibility to generate new business leads. Participation by the company in online business affiliations with reputable global players of e-business technology is a necessity. Two of these players are Palo Alto Software and B2BToday.com. Strategic relationships must also be made with companies, government institutions, regional (provincial) government offices, and NGOs, as well as with individual customers.

     

  4. High-quality service and customer satisfaction. Everything the company sells is guaranteed; therefore, the services have to do what the customers want, and do it well. Long-term customer satisfaction is critical to the survival of the company.

     

  5. Create multiple opportunities from a single line of expertise. West Pacific Marketing Consultants is able to leverage from a single pool of expertise into multiple revenue generation opportunities: business development, market development, market intelligence, industrial sectors analysis, and channel development on a global scale, as well as sales assistance for global companies in the Indonesian market.

     

  6. Key management team. The right management team is integral, and must have a strong foundation in marketing, management, finance, and services development. The company is confident in its team.

1.3.2 External (Business Environment) Factors

The Asia-Pacific Region is now living in an interesting era: the process of change from the "old economy" to the "global new economy" brings a tremendous development growth of e-commerce, mobility of capital, and liberalization to the region. Since the new global economy brings new economics, new market structures, new industry structures, and new company structures, the profile of customers has also changed. Customers have evolved from "solution demander" to "value demander," and from "clients" to "business partners." West Pacific Marketing Consultants is proactively focused on establishing relationships with multiple digital contents, companies, government institutions, regional (provincial) government offices, NGOs, and individual customers as its prospective business partners.
