The popularity of his boats had created a surge in demand that outstripped his company’s current capacity. Davis Boatworks desperately needed an infusion of capital to expand the business and to streamline operations. Additionally, Davis knew that the time was right to diversify his net worth. Apart from $200,000 in liquid investments and $2.3 million worth of commercial and residential real estate holdings, nearly all of his net worth was tied up in the equity of Davis Boatworks. As the sun peeked above the horizon, Davis pondered his options.
Leslie thought that some portion of the firm’s continuing success could be attributed to the high recognition and image of elegance which the Cunard name enjoyed. Yet in the past few years, due to competitive pressures, economic conditions, and also the structure of Cunard’s organization, an increasing portion of funds had been allocated to the marketing budgets of individual ships (rather than in behalf of the Cunard group overall). Further, an increasing proportion of these funds was being devoted to tactical marketing. Thus there had been less and less “left over” for the reinforcement or support of the Cunard brand name. She also thought that prospective internal organizational change might add to these problems.
One of the most important reason why this acquisition was successful was that both companies provides complementing services. EBay needed an online payment system that has good popularity that PayPal already possess. By offering such complementary services, both companies were able to successfully integrate and make doing business more convenient. The Synergy between the two companies rapidly boosted more business for each operation, and this led to PayPal becoming the default select of online transfer payments. In the early 2000’s, many smaller competitors
This is good as it influences the public and Sony Music’s target profit to buy more products maximising profits as a result. This links to another advantage of Synergy as they are using most of their own brands in the project; whatever it may be, they appeal to a wider target market for example if Sony Music were to work on a movie project like Spiderman using Synergy they can use their subsidiaries (film studios, music labels, products etc.) appeal to audience in the electronics market, their film audience and their music audience further promoting their brand however in some cases the workload can be shared between two or more companies exploiting the strengths, like for example Sony Music would share their skills with Marvel when it came to the production of Spiderman. This is also another advantage as each company that co-operates with Sony Music and vice versa will receive skill and ideas to the project. Finally another advantage of Synergy is that it influences the public opinion which again further helps promote their brand but also if Sony Music influences the public they will use more of their products meaning Sony Music may dominate the market and the industry.

Having Robert Hoffman as its general manager gives the company edge over other competitors due to his management abilities and skills that he gained through years of hard work. The plan of establishing a water park can increase revenues but it can also create cost in terms of investment. Capital and cost should be taken into consideration when making decisions because these two factors can affect the overall profit of the company in the long run. The lure of gambling to young people should also be taken into consideration since the water park will most likely cater families with children (Pearce and Robinson 2008).
This is why the government have close links with business groups, like Shell, BP and Tesco. Wealthy groups can afford a lot of advertisements and media coverage, which both are extremely helpful in promoting a pressure group, as more people become aware of their presence. BT constantly run adverts on the TV because they can afford to do so, and BT are probably the most successful telecommunications company in the world. Another factor that contributes to a pressure groups success is size. This is because when a pressure group is larger in size it means it contains a large membership and usually more people will recognize the group.

Yet this model has been recently tested to prove very effective in even low-volume recruiting environments. The increase use of social media as a platform for marketing job vacancies and sourcing of talent is fundamentally changing how recruiting gets done. As a service provider of RPO to clients worldwide, linear recruiting methodology is winning over traditional recruiting practices. In emerging markets outside most developed countries where linear recruiting methodology is practiced today, this has allowed for staffing agencies, RPO providers, and internal corporate recruiting functions to leap frog over the competition.
