2.) Online movie business is a new business venture with many customers demanding for them. This business allows customers to download movies over a fast speed connection on an internet. It is a business venture that has rivaled cheap pirated movies that are provided on peers' computer networks. The movies are watched by the use of media players from the Microsoft Corporation and the Real Networks Company. The movies can be altered according to the viewers likes, that is, forwarded, rewind or paused and can be watched several number of times in a single day and can be stored on the computer drive for a whole month when not watched. This is a good business venture because millions of movies are produced annually and the customers only get them through traditional means such as channels or the hard copies. Debbie has to create a pool of customers and retain them.
Said that, the bargaining power of buyers will determine the growth of a business, buyers have the tendency to compare prices of various businesses, and therefore lowering license costs of watching the movies will put Debbie's business to compete favorably with the already existing businesses that provide internet movies. She also has to provide super hits of movies to avoid customers switching to alternatives such as pirated movies on computer networks. Promotional strategies will also be effective in maintaining customers' loyalty to his movies by giving offers for a given number of movies watched by a given customer.
These strategies will enable Debbie compete favorably in the internet movies market. However, the bargaining power of the movie producers can affect Debbie's business in the sense that they can charge a higher fee for super hits, which could be in demand hence making her increase license cost or operate at lower profit margin. The entry of more internet movie businesses would be a threat to Debbie but changing her internal business strategy to intense advertising of her movies would increase the number of customers and retain them as well.
