Current Value Analysis

Value analysis is somewhat which make the offering or the product or services sell or work. The current (CPV) that is customer perceived value of Uber Eats offering in the mind of a potential customer is quite satisfactory and providing a handsome profit. As people are passionate about eating good and yummy foods from restaurant in Australia as Australia is the top in food industry or we can say that in beverages keeping in mind this fact Uber Eats also enter in to the new market of Australia and performing well in this new market in Australia by delivering its food on time and with least cost and with better quality which in return providing and making its value at high that is the value of Uber Eats is increasing day by day in Austria also (Miles, 2015). People from Australia love and now become passionate about the speed of Uber Eats delivery system, as Uber started to provide of free home delivery with less time so now people are not supposed to come out of their comfort zone that is home to restaurant and to be seated on restaurant seat to have a food now Uber Eats provides home service so they are enjoying this facility of home delivery and feeling pride and satisfied which is building the good brand image of Uber Eats in Australia as well. So Uber Eats gained a great value in term of customer perceived value for home delivery of Uber Eats (Miles, 2015).
Customer perceived value simply means the total difference between all the evaluation of benefits and cost of the offering and its alternatives available in the market (Carlson et al., 2015). So the value of the customer can be increased mainly by two ways or method, and that is just by offering the service with some emotional and functional benefits and or just by reducing any one or more cost which is involved in offerings. So here Uber Eats is offering the service at least cost, and it is emotionally attaching itself to the general customer of Australia (Woodcock, 2016).
So the customer perceived value toward Uber Eats home delivery services is much satisfactory as it is offering as per the requirement of the customer in the market and providing a simple app to book your order with a single click. The people can select desirable food and avail within a 30 min of time at home (Woodcock, 2016).

Current Value Position

Service of home delivery of Uber Eats is at the growing and grooming stage, and this service of home delivery is the prime concern of Uber Eats to increase its value as customer perceived value in the food industry especially in Australia as people are so passionate of eating food from restaurant but somehow they need to go to restaurant which some time was not possible for them as they don't want to go out from their comfortable home to restaurant. So, the Uber Eats has brought the tradition of home delivery service which was appreciated by the potential customer of Australia which not only increased revenue but also increased its customer perceived value and which in turn leads to making more potential current and future customer (Pugliese, 2016). Uber Eats full filling its promise also of delivering its services on time at least cost which is not only increasing its value proposition also.
Various competitors are competing in this market to make customer perceived value satisfactory and good As Uber Eats has the good and satisfactory customer perceived value in Australia regarding;

  1. Timely delivering services

  2. Best quality of food is some of the major value which brings success in the Australia food market.

Competitors of Uber Eats are Menulog and Foodora, so they are also trying their hard to cope-up with the challenges in the market and to make good customer perceived value by offering high quality of food and services and on time (Connor et al., 2015). Competitors can only be competitive if they use to provide the services with high quality and at least possible time.

Marketing Promotion Plan

Marketing promotion plan simply means that we should execute all our marketing strategies to achieve and meet our objectives which are predefined and formulated (Armstrong et al., 2015). Without proper marketing promotion plan all the hard work and all the effort you put will go in to ruin or vain as it will not bring any profit out of it neither full objectives are achieved.so in order to achieve all organizational goals, and objective an organization should make proper marketing promotion plan to execute its process and activities in order to yield profit and to achieve aims and objective of the organization which are predefined (Andrews et al., 2017).
It has been noticed that even a good offering are failing in the market and the reason is poor or lack of proper marketing promotion plan. In a way to stay updated and to make the target audience aware about your offering, you need to formulate a proper marketing plan or promotional plan to execute all other actives in a right way or manner and to achieve your objective.

Objective of the marketing promotional mix element

In the field of marketing promotional mix can be defined as or described as a constituent of promotional items chosen mainly by the marketer which helps the organization to achieve its goals and objectives (McDonald et al., 2016). Marketers believed that there is an optimal way of allocating the budget to different elements of marketing or promotional mix to achieve objective and goal which are predefined.

Digital promotion

It is a form of more than one electronic media to advertise and market the services, or the product example are social media which is a very good platform to advertise and market and to reach the maximum target customer (Castro et al., 2017). Uber Eats is also very efficiently using digital communication and promotion as a platform to make their offering in the limelight, in a way to capture the maximum customer as the people in Australia are very active on a social media platform. And in the same way advertisement is also a part of this promotion mix but it is a non-paid platform used to make large people aware of the offering by some sponsor.

Budget Allocation

According to the need for promotion and objectives, we need to allocate the budget on the particular element. Take an example of Uber Eats in Australia as most of the people are on social media and they are very active on it also. So, to invest and have a good amount of budget in social media through the digital platform is fruitful (Verroios et al., 2015). As through social media, the offering is displayed and can be reached to the maximum customer in Australia. So, to increase a sale, Uber Eats can use social media as a tool or platform. So, accordingly, the marketers need to evaluate the budget and allocate the budget in respective elements of marketing mix (Verroios et al., 2015). Uber Eats use to allocate maximum budget on digital communication because people in Australia are more active on social site and media. So, this is a right platform for Uber Eats to make aware of its offering that is home delivery service.
