2. Ads were not deliver a-call-to-action for consumers
3. No tracking system for the effectiveness of the existing marketing campaign
4. Negative branding image
5. Insufficient consumers’ demographic profiles

The sale and marketing department raised concern over the effectiveness of the existing marketing campaigns. Given multiple business lines that the corporation currently managing and its recent establishment in Cambodia, an ineffective marketing strategy can lead to a negative return on investment and resources.

Therefore, the need for an ongoing marketing research is critical for the survival of the corporation in the short term—as well as sustainable growth in the long run.
