Part B: The Laundry Mobile

Dr. Lisa Amans
August 10, 2019
I received the feedback that I had a well-thought out Marketing Plan for my business, The
Laundry Mobile. This feedback was viable into transitioning into the next several assignments.
Professor Zhang gave me feedback that my introduction to my hypothetical company was clearly
stated from my products/ services offered to the physical location being clearly defines. This puts
The Laundry Mobile company in a great place to begin strategizing. I will utilize the feedback
from the mission statement to build upon to make this company a success. Being that I did not
get any negative feedback from Assignment part A, it makes part B of the assignment easier to
transition through although they are separate assignments. Being that my feedback was more
about what I did well, I will continue on this path of closely following the rubric so I can
continue on this path throughout these future assignments.
The Laundry Mobile is a new company coming to the Greater Atlanta area in which will
provide a premium laundry service to stay at home parents, working class citizens in which are
too busy to do their laundry on their own. This laundry company is a company that is sensitive to
the needs of our customers, ensuring that we right-size the services to fit the individual need of
each client. The Laundry Mobile dispatches our launderer representatives out to our customer’s
home in our mobile unit to pick up your laundry from your door front and return to the mobile
unit to wash, dry, fold, starch your laundry. We never even leave your premises with your
precious belongings; we simply complete your laundry in our mobile unit and upon completion
we return them to your front door and give you your invoice for the services rendered. Our
employees treat each client with the utmost respect and are well-trained in providing a premium
client experience to the customer because exceptional service is key. With our headquarters
located in Midtown Atlanta, GA we provide services to our clients 7 days a week, 14 hours a
day. Being a white-glove service, you have to ensure that all of our client’s needs are met, and
that our employees are available upon request of the customer to exceed their wants and needs.
Cutting down the time it takes out of our client’s day with getting their laundry chore done based
on a weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly, and monthly basis, makes our business top of the line and
appealing to our clients. Being that the greater Atlanta area is heavily populated with middleclass citizens, this service will be more demanded because Atlanta is a very busy place and
families are constantly on the go. The branding strategy will focus on how we care for the clients
both Primary and Secondary target market laundry needs with their family and individual wants
in mind. While highlighting The Laundry Mobile’s positioning statement.
Branding Strategy
The Laundry Mobile’s promise to our clientele is that we will provide them with the
white-glove premium laundry service that will keep them loyal to the brand for a lifetime. We
are an ever-changing laundry service that is stay up to date with the latest products to crush the
competition while keeping in mind each client individual need. Our main focus is and continues
to be on the stay-at-home parent and the families that are constantly on the go. Exceeding the
needs and expectations of a helping hand in getting the chore of laundry completed. Staying
committed to the customer and providing them with the exceptional customer service, will keep
The Laundry Mobile thriving and growing to greater depths.
Brand Name
“The Laundry Mobile” will create a brand in which is unique, yet memorable to our
target audience. When the name of The Laundry Mobile was created, it was designed to ensure
that people who hates doing laundry, or just do not have enough hours in a day can have a
helping hand to do it for them. Being mobile is an added bonus, because you do not have to
separate your laundry and take it to a facility. All a client has to do to receive The Laundry
Mobile’s services is make a phone call, register on the website, send a text message, or send an
email and we will take care of the rest. The Laundry Mobile emphasizes mobility because our
company has a headquarters, but we bring our services to the customer.
The logo of The Laundry Mobile will consist of washer with suds on wheels with white
glove hands above it. This will emphasize to the customer that we are mobile and comes to you
at your convenience. This will draw the attention of both the stay at home parents and those
families constantly on the go that live a consistently, fast-paced lifestyle. This will stand out
from the competition because our customer is the number 1 priority and offering this premium,
white glove experience stands out among the rest of Laundry services. Everyone that does
laundry has seen a washer before, but to see it on wheels with fresh suds and white glove hands
above it will appeal to the pureness, and extra care taken with your personal belongings. This
will appeal to the logical connection between imagery and services (Jiang, Gorn, Galli, &
Chattopadhyay, 2016).
Figure 1. “The Laundry Mobile” logo will be used on all of our Business Cards, Contracts, and
all forms of company Marketing mechanisms (, 2019).
The Laundry Mobile’s slogan is centered around providing the client with premium
laundry services that are brought to the client. This company individualizes the experience for
each customer because at The Laundry Mobile, we know that each customer lives a different
lifestyle and requires different levels of service to meet their laundry needs. This is why our
slogan puts emphasis on lending a helping hand to our client; “Taking the bore out of your chore,
and redefining task with premium class”.
Brand Extension
The Laundry Mobile’s brand extension offers premium on-call laundry service to our
clients in which the client can schedule same-day laundry services between 6am-11:30pm in
which one our laundry mobiles are dispatched out to the client’s home and we complete their
laundry for them. We have 24/7 customer service in which you can contact to request services, or
even ask questions in regard to the services offered and future offerings. Being available for our
clients around the clock builds trust and partnership between consumer and provider. Thus,
creating promising customer loyalty and increases clientele because of the extensive services that
we provide to our customers. This will help to continuously grow our client base and exceed our
goals and benchmarks within our company.
Primary and Secondary Target Markets
Stay-at-home moms between ages 28-40 with families in the upper-class financial status
are our primary target. The reason that this group is our primary target market is because being a
stay-at-home mom is a full-time job in itself. Having to cook, clean, run errands, and take care of
a family of 4 is a hard task to successfully accomplish on a daily basis without missing at least
one item on the long list of tasks to complete daily. This group is excited to take a chance at a
new service in which will assist them in taking some of the workload off of their daily task. This
target market can afford this service because they have a spouse in which is typically a Doctor,
Lawyer, Scientist, or a Business Executive which earns an income of $100,000+ per year to
supply all of the needs of a family.
The secondary target market is working families between ages 35-60 whom work 40+
hours a week and are constantly on the go, but still need their laundry chore completed. These
families are also live in the Greater Atlanta area and are a part of the middle-class financial
status, whom have at least 2 children. They live in a suburban community and have an education
of at least Bachelors or greater, and have an income of $50,000-$100,000 (Kotler & Keller,
2016).Having the secondary target market be of a larger scale allows The Laundry Mobile to
offer more services with options that do not require a set laundry schedule like a typical
company. The secondary target market will help to build the brand even more because of the
lifestyle that they live and need someone to handle their laundry needs for them on a regular
basis. Also, our secondary target market will have gotten word of mouth reviews from our
primary target market, so they are aware of how The Laundry Mobile operates.
Positioning Statement
The Laundry Mobile is a new full-service white-glove mobile laundry service coming to
the Greater Atlanta, GA area. Our company will be offering multiple tiers of service levels to fit
our customers laundry needs for stay-at-home moms and working-class families. The uniqueness
of The Laundry Mobile is that we are client driven to offer an individualized experience to each
customer. We offer a 200% service guarantee and if the client is dissatisfied with the product, we
refund double the amount that they paid for the services rendered to them. We beat out the
competition because we come to the customer and do the laundry in our mobile unit and return
the finished product back to the client the same day. We also, offer the very first load free so you
can ensure that this is a service that the customer would actually like to get without a required
commitment. The competition in which The Laundry Mobile outperforms is Zappy Laundry and
the Press Box laundry companies. The reason that we outperform them is because these two fullservice laundry companies can pick up your laundry, but you will not get it completed and
returned the same day. Also, Zappy Laundry charges you by the pound for regular shirts and
undergarments. Then they charge you by the piece for button up shirts and dry-cleaning items.
They also require a minimum purchase of at least $25.00 to pick up your laundry from your
home (Springboard, 2018). tart with an introduction sentence or two. PressBox only picks up
laundry based on a schedule twice a week and only services certain neighborhoods in the North
Atlanta area (Moore & Loles, n.d.). These two competitors offer great services, but do not cater
to the individual needs of each customer. If you do not spend a certain amount, they will not pick
up nor deliver your laundry to you. You would have to go an take your laundry to these facilities
for them to even consider doing your laundry, and then you have to wait over 24 hours to have it

“For customers who are tired of having to juggle family time to complete laundry and
would like to have someone complete this time-consuming chore for you; The Laundry Mobile
has the ultimate solution to fit your families individual need. From simple undergarments to full
linens, give The Laundry Mobile a chance to exceed your expectations and take care of all of
your laundry needs”.
Consumer Behavior of Target Market
The consumer behavior of The Laundry Mobiles target market, stay-at-home moms
between ages 28-40 that are married with at least 2 children. Utilizing the position statement,
moto/slogan, and logo to show how we individualize the services to fit each family need. While
staying up to date with the most innovative processes and environment friendly products. This is
something that none of our competitors could even begin to compete with. The Laundry
Mobile’s brand extension provides a full-service, white-glove experience that allows the client to
tell us how they would like their laundry done and on what schedule they would like to utilize
the services. This allows the customer to feel included in the process and to have a positive
experience and become loyal to the brand. This, bringing in more clients by sharing their
experience with other potential customers. Being that my target market is a prominent upperclass clientele between 28-49 years of age, they are more decisive on their needs and will not
accept anything less than exceptional customer service and a premium product (Kotler & Keller,
2016). Consumer behavior changes based upon the age and maturity of the targeted market, and
there are many studies that prove this (White, Habib, & Hardisty, 2019).
The Laundry Mobile’s marketing plan continues its focus on the client and providing that
premium white-glove experience to stay-at-home moms and working-class citizens. The
branding and strategy are sure to appeal to the primary and secondary target markets. The logo
and position statements just puts emphasis and seals the deal on what The Laundry Mobile is
guaranteeing to its customers that they will provide to them as a company. The brand extension
solidifies the moto and mission that The Laundry Mobile is committed to providing to their
