Well friends i will give a brief about Swot analysis over here.
It is a very common tool to analyze a company but not all are aware about it
A SWOT analysis is a valuable tool for many reasons, but in a marketing plan it is absolutely essential.
SWOT stands for internal Strengths and Weaknesses and external Opportunities and Threats.
The internal elements are those that either strengthen or weaken your business. For example, on the strengths side, are you well capitalized? Do you have well-trained staff?
On the weaknesses, you could be understaffed, have inexperienced management, etc. Internal elements are those that you, as the owner or manager, see but your customers don't.
On the external side, you have Opportunities and Threats. These are external elements, which means you may have little control over them, but you are aware of them and they become a part of your strategy, especially turning those threats into opportunities. For example, an external opportunity would be a new product launch like Amul saw opportunity and launched Amul Pizzas
The external threats you will get from competition and the community, as well as state and federal laws. For example, did your competition just build a branch close to you?
Anything that impacts your customers directly can be considered an external opportunity or threat (in the case of not offering your customers the value of service they expect).
Most students have a hard time figuring out whether an item is external or internal. If the customer or your competition can see it, it's external. If you and your staff can see it, it's internal.
