Odyssey Wonder has been Planning to setup Adventure Sports Business by Using Suitable Financial Loan. Thus it is important to plan these spending well as per the requirement of the customers and also to promote them effectively. It is a step to deliver products and services better suited to customer needs. Further, in this competitive and growing sector of adventure sports in Small City like Jamshedpur, it becomes necessary to develop and innovate to stay ahead of others and to compete. Also, as the company grows and matures, it is looking to establish its unique identity in adventure sports which is more recognized and focused.
Under the heat of intense competition from emerging players like M-Pavallion and many competitors in unorganized sector, Odyssey Wonders has increased its marketing spends. But increasing promotion expenditure is not the solution; the firm must understand what to say (message content and structure) to the target market segment and how to reach out (media) cost effectively so that more adventure sport enthusiasts get attracted to Odyssey Wonder.
Through this study the firm wanted to identify the motivating factors towards adventure sports among the youths (between 18-35 years of age-considered to be the largest segment for adventure sports) residing in Jamshedpur Region.
