You must present a summary of the IV hydration market in your industry or market analysis.

Although it may appear unneeded, this provides several functions.

Educating yourself about the IV hydration market is the first step. It aids in your comprehension of the industry you work in.

The second benefit of market research is that it might enhance your marketing plan, especially if your analysis reveals market trends.

To demonstrate to readers that you are an authority in your field is the third reason. You accomplish this by conducting the study and presenting the findings in your strategy.

Your IV hydration business plan's industry analysis section needs to address the following questions:

  • How much money is the IV hydration market worth?

  • The market is either growing or shrinking.

  • Who are the market's major rivals?

  • Who are the main market suppliers?

  • What patterns are influencing the sector?

  • What is the anticipated industry growth over the following five to ten years?

  • What is the size of the relevant market?

By estimating the size of the market throughout the entire nation and then relating that number to your local population, you can extrapolate such a figure.

Client research

Your IV hydration business plan's customer analysis section must include information on the clients you already service or anticipate serving.

Examples of client segments include people, businesses, families, and institutions.

As you may expect, the type of IV hydration business you run will be greatly influenced by the customer segment(s) you select. Individuals would undoubtedly react differently to marketing campaigns than, say, organizations.

Try to segment your target market based on their psychographic and demographic characteristics. Regarding demographics, talk about the ages, genders, localities, and income levels of the prospective clients you hope to attract.

  • What kinds of clients do they cater to?

  • What kind of intravenous hydration business are they?

  • How much do they charge (premium, inexpensive, etc.)?

  • What do they excel at?

  • What are their shortcomings?

Consider your responses to the last two questions from the standpoint of the customers. Additionally, don't be scared to find out what clients think is best and worst about your rivals.

Your areas of competitive advantage should be listed as the last component of your competitive analysis. For instance:

  • Will you facilitate client's access to your good or service?

  • Will you provide goods or services that your rivals do not?

  • Will your customer service improve?

  • Will you provide lower prices?

Consider strategies to beat the competition and list them in this portion of your plan.

Traditionally, a marketing plan includes the four P’s: Product, Price, Place, and Promotion.

For an IV hydration business plan, your marketing strategy should include the following:

  • Product: In the product section, you should reiterate the type of IV hydration business that you documented in your business overview. Then, detail the specific products or services you will be offering. For example, will you provide pain relief drips, vitamin drips, or electrolyte drips?

  • Price: Document the prices you will offer and how they compare to your competitors. Essentially in the product and price sub-sections of your plan, you are presenting the products and/or services you offer and their prices.

  • Place: Place refers to the site of your IV hydration business. Document where your business is situated and mention how the site will impact your success. For example, is your IV hydration business located in a busy retail district, a business district, or a standalone spa or lounge? Discuss how your site might be the ideal location for your customers.

  • Promotions: The final part of your IV hydration marketing plan is where you will document how you will drive potential customers to your location(s).
