Case Study

What is Marketing? [13]


Read the case and discuss the following questions in groups. Come up with a solution to the problem:

1. What do you think “Pull a Partner” could have done differently?

2. “Pull a Partner” thought they had a winning idea, but failed to succeed due to a number of reasons. If “Pull a Partner” had better matched the four elements of the marketing mix, would it have been successful?

3. What else could “Pull a Partner” have done to better promote themselves in light of the 4Ps?


Pull a Partner is a new speed dating business based in Leicester. Speed dating is where you have up to 30 dates in one night where each date lasts approximately 3-4 minutes. As you finish each speed date, you decide whether you want to meet that person again or not. If you like the person, you put 'X' on your sheet. You can leave it blank if you did not like that person. For every person you have a match with, your details will be shared with one another.

The venture is the love child of a Business Studies teacher and a friend who runs a marketing business, who spotted a gap in the market. There is a large number of single people out there with limited opportunities to meet their one true love. Speed dating is arguably a low cost-high returns venture. So what can go wrong?

Pull a Partner believed it had thought of everything. Speed dating is a service that appeals to both males and females, regardless of age, religion, culture and so on. It is a non-discriminatory service open to all as long as they are single.

The business thought it was on to a winner when it secured a free booking to use a large area of a famous pub in Leicester. Given the low costs faced by the business, competitor pricing seemed the best strategy. With competitors in the region having prices ranging from £20 to £45, Pull a Partner believed that in undercutting the competition at a rate of £10 per person it had the ingredients of success. When it came to promotion, it used everything from social network advertising to classified sites like Gumtree. However, the event ended in disaster. With only 9 females and 3 males, the event met an embarrassing end.
