We plan the step by step development at first in the ``Irkutskiy`` market, then in the ``Fortuma`` market, and the last step is ``Complex`` market. In addition, as our service is new, we plan to create loyalty of our customers until direct competitors appear. The scope of development will be the Irkutsk nonfood markets, which sell clothes, shoes, home appliances and other similar things.
Irkutsk is the biggest city of eastern Siberia. It has a lot of markets, but any of them does not have any consolidating data base that help people to find goods that is necessary. So, this database of products is a result of the demand of many people.
Such business is new for the Irkutsk market, so there are no examples of development and existence of similar service, where we can get information and some experience about our venture. The positive side of such situation is that we will be the first, and, as a result we can get the greatest benefits. The negative side is that we will have a lot of unpredictable situations that may create big obstacles for good development. Our informational service center can be classified as informational business, which is in the beginning stage in Russia today. It also creates some global opportunities and threats because during this stage the most prosperous ventures appear, but also many businesses force into insolvency.
So, current situation gives our venture a lot of opportunities for good development.
