Question

You are starting your own Internet business. You decide to form a company that will sell cookbooks online. Justcookbooks.com is scheduled to launch 6 months from today. You estimate that the annual cost of this business will be as follows:

 Technology (Web design and maintenance) \$5,000 Postage and handling \$1,000 Miscellaneous \$3,000 Inventory of cookbooks \$2,000 Equipment \$4,000 Overhead \$1,000

Part I

Deliverable Length:1 graph plus calculations

You must give up your full-time job, which paid \$50,000 per year, and you worked part-time for half of the year.

The average retail price of the cookbooks will be \$30, and their average cost will be \$20.

Assume that the equation for demand is Q = 40,000 – 500P, where

Q = the number of cookbooks sold per month

P = the retail price of books.

Show what the demand curve would look like if you sold the books between \$25 and \$35.

Address the following questions:

1. What is the elasticity of the demand for cookbooks bought this way?
2. Is the business worth pursuing so far?
3. Suppose that you expect to sell about 22,000 cookbooks per month online, and assume your overhead, technology, and equipment costs are fixed. What are your total costs?
4. What are your marginal costs?
5. What market structure have you entered, and why?
6. What can you do to guarantee success in this market?
7. What pricing strategy might you use?
