1.0 Excutive summary:

 

Suss Education has been working on becoming at this stage for 40 months and other preparation has been going on for some years before this period.

Presently, Suss Education is at that stage to implement what it has accomplished already.  This Smart Business Plan will give us an idea of our accomplishments. It’s regarding to add the Third Smart School System to the current Government and Private school systems, There, Suss Education believes very strongly lays our business opportunity in full force. There are of course other smart business opportunities where it can handle later or when will possible to construct.

Suss Education is an international company constructed by Suss Education Iceland ehf. and Suss Education Africa Limited offering Web lessons online for free to the most vulnerable and others in the society. They include teaching and educational and cultural subjects in layman’s term. The Web lessons will short. In the beginning it will start with Financial literacy and in July 2019, Home accounting in layman’s term regarding the Web lessons. They will be very easy to approach and gives anybody the chance to learn any subject at his choice now and in the future.

 

2.0 Opportunity:

2.1 Problem & Solution; Target Market; Competion

The wisest and most important opportunity lays in bringing the newest technology Suss Education can get hold of each time into the Smart School System. What’s that? It´s a system which use the online technology and computer sicence and technology to teach and educate and offer culture to the public for free. The Smart School system will offer the Web lessons in institutions named Smart Learning Centres. Where people can visit and get the Educators to help and assist with the subject of concern. The Government and the Private school sector can use their Web lessons for teaching their students online. Their curriculum can be adjusted to this circustances of the education approchs.

The opportunity of Suss Education is to produce Web lessons for the Smart School System and they will get them free of charge anytime for anyone. The Smart School System will be tested as a trial in five location/schools in Kenya to begin with and replicated all over Kenya/Africa when approved by participants of the project.

The Smart School system will save a lot in funding new schools for Kenya/Africa. There will much less building constructions to do. Instead we build the Learning Centres and students and users of Suss Education´s products and services can study where ever they are located each time. It saves also transportation cost for them to go fewer times to the Learning Centre because they are studying online. Simply they can study at home or elsewhere at their own choice. The society use the saving for other activities like infrastructure, social welfare, etc.

The expectations are to give more students and the public and the most vulnerable easier access and the possibility to study free and do it anywhere they are located. When they get the Web lessons free of charge it will not exclude anyone from studying in the Smart School System.

Suss Education will cover the cost of its Learning Centres as it will be free of charge. The company will collect funding from the public and organisations and the Government and the local governments to cover the cost. Suss Education will advertise in the beginning and the end of each Web lesson. This revenue will be large and make capable to offer the Web lessons free of charge to anybody. Please note there will also be other subjects from various suppliers on the Suss Education’s database which is meant for the public. For example, from individuals and companies who will publish their products for the user to learn about their products and services. This possibility gives Suss Education to receive revenue to cover the operating cost.

Suss Education will be able to offer Web lessons internationally and therefore get international companies to advertise for heavy amounts for each advertisement.

The problem today is that the present schooling systm is costly, and it needs large and many buildings to function. The teaching methods need to be adjusted and aligned to the present opportunities. There is a difficulty regarding the teacher. They need to be thought how to handle the Smart School System at the same time we are implementing it and change them into educators. The educators will be teaching and educating and introduce cultural subjects and produce their own Web lessons for the Smart School System for Suss Education and individually too.

Suss Education will offer Web lessons in the urban and rural areas by using the educators to visit the local Learning Centres which it will offer at each location in the rural areas. It aims to use the current distribution system for distribution of vaccines. There’s no need to invent the wheel again.

The target market is the total population with an extra help to the most vulnerable. They need and deserve only the best and nothing but the best. By taking into action the Smart School System. These actions will give them an opportunity to study at free will and without paying for the Web lessons. This means that they will be less burden (not anybody can learn) and the society must take care of them separately, please. The others can help themselves in any meaning of that word.

The by-product from the Smart School System is also more wellness, financial security, freedom and democracy. The public will be more educated and informed. It gives the society the chance to empower both women and men for higher achievements and fulfil their goals for a better world.

The competition comes from other websites than ours or as www.suss.education  offering Web lessons (courses) online in an education. They ask for fee and aim at the higher education. Suss Education is working as company for the public and is free. The competition comes also a from the present school system. But Suss Education is not to think of it as a competition rather as a collaboration between the Government and the Private versus the Smart School System.

 

3.0 Execution

 

3.1 Marketing and Sales

3.1.1 Marketing Plan

 

Suss Education is planning to advertise at Facebook for Kenya to begin with. It has a Facebook Page where the advertisements will be put. Suss Education will also count on the word of mouth to distribute its content. It will keep on its database a huge content of Web lessons and they will also advertise themselves as the users continue to use them.

In the Smart School System there will be a free choice to select any Web lesson and it will advertise itself as time goes by and the user makes it popular on the website. There will be Top10 list who will also advertise the Web lessons. Therefore, internally Suss Education will have its own opportunity to advertise itself.

It´s certain that Suss Education needs to operate a Marketing and Sales department. Its purpose is to market and sell its Web lessons and get advertisements for each Web lesson. There will advertised in front of each Web lesson and at its end too and in between. There is a need for salespersons to handle this affair. They will also sell and market Web lessons from individuals, organisations and officials where each one is promoting his own issues. The one can be having a complicated products and services which there is a need to explain the use of to the customer. Then it´s his change to produce Web lessons to explain them. There is a big market for this issue and Suss Education has made a trial to introduce the idea and the next step is to follow it.

3.3.1 Sales Plan

 

The smart business idea is to start with 5 locations and find out how the theory works in the Learning Centres. After that experience Suss Education collects the data and on those informations. It can decide with certain accuarancy how to handle the Markering and Sales for the future. The issue is a need for some experience and knowledge to base further actions on and the theory is working according to expections.

Suss Education needs to sell the smart business idea to the locations and test it there. They will give us their facilities and it will sell the idea to both the students and to the locations. They are schools and libraries which offer their classrooms and lecture rooms so the students can attend there and watch the Web lessons on the smart-tv.

Suss Education will make a contract with the locations where they offer their facilities free of charge and it will take care of the cost regarding the TV and the computer in each classroom. In the Learning Centre of Suss Education it will take care of the total cost of operating them. This is a part of the total sales plan for Suss Education. There are two lines the Learning Centres and the classrooms of the locations.

The goal is to open Learning Centres as they will be needed in Kenya/Africa with the urban and rural areas included.

The Marketing and Sales department will need to follow up the distribution system and tackle it.
