    • A new product may have to be promoted by door to door selling, selling shopsand through media like T.V. or through advertisements.

    • THE LIQUOR INDUSTRY IN INDIAThe alcohol industry is very important for the government. It generates anestimated Rs. 16,000 crore per annum in spite of the fact that the per capitaconsumption of liquor in India is the lowest in the world. The total liquor industryis worth Rs. 2,000 crore. IMFL accounts for only a third of the total liquorconsumption in India. Most IMFLs are cheap and are priced below Rs. 200 perbottle. Alcohol sales proceeds account for 45% of the total revenue collection inthe country. Whiskey accounts for 60% of the liquor sales while rum; brandy anyvodka account for 17% 18% and 6% respectively. MNC‘s share is only 10% andthey have been successful only in the premium and super premium ranges. PostWTO the government may have opened India to foreign distilleries, but the dutyhas been increased from 222% to 464-706%. This is due to the fact that there is a100% customs duty, 150% contravening duty, local taxes, distributor‘s margin,retailer‘s margin and publicity charges. The cost is finally borne by the consumer 9SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • The cost is finally borne by the consumerThough the government claims that this is being done to protect the domesticliquor industry, the domestic industry accounts for 99% of the market share. Thisprotectionist policy could prove to be counterproductive and lead to smuggling.As of now, only 45% of the sales are through legal channels and only 25% of thisis duty paid for. Within India itself, the policy of alcohol retail differs from stateto state. While some states like Maharashtra. Uttar Pradesh, and Tamil-Nadu havea liberal policy, come states like Haryana and Andhra Pradesh have had very bitterexperience in trying to make these states dry and have eventually had to withdrawthe policy. 10SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • PRODUCT PROFILEThis research focuses the study of alcoholic product of MSBL. Thus it is importantfor us to known what Alcoholic drinks are. Alcoholic drinks are a mixture ofalcohol or spirit water and minor ingredients knows as cogeneries. The organicname of alcohol is ethyl alcohol, which is derivative of hydrocarbon. Consumablealcohol has no flavor, only careful section of congeneries which is added duringfermentation process lead to a palatable product. Therefore alcohol drinks offeredworld over are blended to provide uniform blends, bouquets and palatability. 11SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • ABOUT COMPANYA saga that began over a century and a half ago continues on its path of service tothe world with dedication, courage and an unflinching commitment to quality.Over the years the Company has embraced modernity and adapted to changingtimes. Yet, its basic values remain the same-integrity, Craftsmanship, andTradition. From mount shivalik brewery Ltd where the sanctity of ancient culture,technological development and craving for quality are artfully blended into theproducts. Late padamshri Mr N.N.Mohan(1901-1969) who was the father of mountshivailk give the idea to open brewery at bankerpur.after that foundations stonewas laid by then padamshri col.V.R mohan on 29 nov.1972. 1972-1978 mount shivalik breweries ltd.(MSBL)was formallyincorporated, headed by Mr.B.D. Bali as the managing director. 12SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • The construction of brewery began at bhankarpur,dist.patiala,india and wascompleted in a record time of 1 year.MSBL launched its brands inJK,Haryana,Himachal Pradesh,Delhi and Madhya Pradesh. 1982-1984 the group established an Indianmade foreign liquor(IMFL) bottling plant at Chandigarh namely ―Mount shivalikbottling plant‖. Second IMFL bottling plant at patna,bihar under the name ofshivalik kineme(P)Ltd. Established in the year 1983.In the year 1984,country‘sfirst super strong beer ―THUNDERBOLT SUPER STRONG ―Beer launched. 1987-1993 In the year 1987, pub culture in north India invoked, byopening of pubs in Chandigarh by the company. Group‘s flagship brand―THUNDERBOLT Super Strong‖ won the prestigious ―monde selection goldmedal ‖ at Barcelona (1991) for its international quality. 13SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • THUNDERBOLT Super strong beer reached a landmark in thecountry by achieving sales of 1.5 million doz. The brand become benchmark forother super strong beer in the country by setting higher standards of quality andexcellent packaging throughout the country. Mount shivalik industries Ltd. incorporated on 19th January. 1996-1998 Two new brands were launchedmild and strong segments by the name of:-GOLDEN PEACOCK & TORPEDOSUPER STORNG.Group achieved a land mark by selling 3.5 million doz. In over 18 states in thecountry in the country in the year 1997.as part of diversification plans, the grouphas decided to set up resorts having facilities of 30 room‘s motels, a pub, beergarden, fast food restaurant, health care, and recreational facilities. MSIL entered into an agreement with Stroh‘s brewery co.,USA‖ to produce and market strohs in India. 14SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • In the year 2000 as part of expansion plans for IMFL, the company has received aletter of intent from Government of Punjab to set up distillery for producingpotable alcohol for its own IMFL brands to be introduced shortly. Presently Mr. Rajiv Bali is working as managing directing of MSBL (bankerpur): Mount Shivalik Breweries Ltd (MSBL), the makers of Golden Peacock andThunderbolt beer brands, is now brewing a multi-pronged marketing strategy to re-introduce the American beer brand Stroh in the Rs 1,500-crore domestic beermarket.The Stroh brand was previously canned in India by Rajasthan Breweries, whichstopped production in February 1999 following differences with the $ 1 billionStroh Brewery Co, USA. MSBL--which had struck an agreement with Stroh USAin 1998 for bottled beer--will now produce and distribute bottled Stroh beer inDiet, Mild and Strong category for all the markets in the country, except SouthIndia (Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh). 15SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • A study conducted by the Delhi-based market research agencyM&M in March 1999 in the markets of North-East, North and West India, revealedthat 78 per cent of the 4,000 respondents were aware of the Stroh brand andregarded it as a premium beer. The findings have now spurred MSBL into quicklyactivating the Stroh brand--with an integrated marketing plan. Says MSBL directormarketing, Monish Bali: ``had we given a longer gap the brand would havesuffered.MSBL now plans to launch Mild and Strong Stroh beer between mid-June andSeptember 1999 in a phased manner: beginning with Rajasthan and progressing tothe markets of Chandigarh, Punjab, West Bengal, and Haryana. Later, in thesecond phase, it will roll out the beer in Delhi, Bihar, Daman, Orissa, MadhyaPradesh and the North-East.Old beer in new bottlesIn its new avatar, Stroh would be made available not in cans but in amber-colored650 ml and 330 ml bottles. While the 650 ml bottle will have the conventionalshape popular in the Indian beer industry, its the 330 ml packaging which willflaunt the `long neck design used by Stroh in America. The 650 ml bottle will alsohave a golden champagne capsule top to enhance its shelf and eye appeal, whilethe unique feature of the 330 ml bottle will be a color-coded neck label.In terms of colors, the blue label will represent mild beer as distinct from the redlabel for strong beer. Moreover, a special offset printed master carton has beendeveloped for packing these two sizes. MSBL is also considering options likesupplying Stroh in kegs to pubs, but this will depend on the prevailing excise lawsof the respective states. 16SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • Pegging the priceAiming to position the beer as a super premium brand, Stroh would be offered at aprice that is higher by Rs 3 to Rs 5 a bottle, against the top-selling domestic brandin each state. MSBL believes that despite the more expensive price, the consumerwould view Stroh as ``an international quality beer at an affordable price. Whilethe can option was earlier available at Rs 60 per 500 ml and Rs 40 per 300 ml can,the new pricing for Stroh in Rajasthan is expected to be around Rs 35-40 (strongbeer) and Rs 30-35 (mild) per 330 ml bottle; and Rs 50-55 (strong) and Rs 40-45(mild) per 650 ml bottle.Currently, cans account for around two per cent of overall beer sales in India.MSBL hopes that apart from catering to the upper elite and foreign tourists, Strohin bottle form would also appeal to the price-sensitive middle class. ``With bottleswe are giving Stroh consumers more value than they were getting from the can,says Bali adding: ``We are keeping open the option for cans in future both in termsof setting up our own facilities or having arrangements with other existingbreweries.Raising the barTaking cognisance of the fact that the Stroh consumer expects internationalquality, taste, packaging and consistency, Stroh would be positioned as `The GreatAmerican Beer. A distinct marketing strategy is being evolved to promote the beerat, what Stroh calls, `on-shops (institutional sales via hotels, bars, clubs,restaurants) and `off-shops (retail outlets).Determined to gulp over 50 per cent of the international beer market in India, Strohis planning some bubbly bursts: 17SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    •  A 30-second television commercial (TVC), createdin the US, will unfold bylate June 99 on the Star channels. With an advertising and promotion budget ofover Rs 5 crore, MSBL will also take positions in other international channels as`The Great American Beer.The earlier TVC for Stroh cans by Rajasthan Breweries was an Indianised one: itshowed a person returning from the US and feeling thrilled on discovering Stroh inIndia. However, this time, MSBL will reinforce Strohs American-ness in itsadvertising -- just as Fosters is positioned as an Australian beer. To build a one-on-one relationship with potential consumers, a direct mailerhighlighting the brands USP--`Fire Brewed Beer--is being sent to all itsdistributors, retailers, bars and clubs, as well as high networth consumers.In the first phase MSBL is focusing on selective marketing in six markets(Rajasthan, West Bengal, Haryana, Chandigarh, Punjab and Delhi) to cover over2,000 retail outlets and over 500 bars/restaurants from its existing network of over165 dealerships, 6,000retail outlets and 1,300 bars and restaurants in 18 states.Says Bali, ``Efforts would be made to convert some of the major outlets in metrosinto exclusive outlets under tie-up arrangements. In association with event management company Crayons, MSBL will organiseat least one mega event a month, from July 1999, in towns like Chandigarh, Jaipur,Calcutta, Delhi, Jamshedpur and Guwahati. The events would include fashionshows, polo matches, rock concerts, rain dances, spot events and theatre. Says Bali,``We are also considering celebrity endorsements by sports and cine stars.Moreover, Stroh would also sponsor various `happening events and carnivals inother towns. 18SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    •  Special promotions on the concept of `The Great American Beer will be heldat places which are associated with hanging out and having fun and symbolic ofAmerican culture: pool parlours, bowling alleys, Go-Kart circuits and otherrecreation centres. MSBLs field force of 85--all wearing branded Stroh T-shirts, caps anduniqueelectronic badges--will aggressively promote the campaign `Lets Stroh a Partywith the help of POS materials like posters, banners, bunting, danglers, stickers,dispensers, glow signs etc at institutions and retail outlets. Also, special promotions like the Best-Decorated Stroh shop and Demand-A-Stroh will be conducted through the retail counters to ensure that the productreaches the targeted consumer. At the institutional level, Stroh would be promotedvia Happy Hours on Saturdays/Sundays as well as special offers during regularhours. Ninety per cent of MSBLs sales come from retail outlets and the remaining10 per cent from institutions. MSBL also plans to communicate messages like `Drink Smart or Dont Startvia its POS materials. To project a caring image it is also planning to associatewith organisations dealing in environment-related issues. MSBL has also identified sports like golf, cricket, bowling, pool, polo, footballand tennis for the promotion of Stroh indifferent markets. Stroh has already tappedthe mood of the World Cup revellers by distributing a 42-page pocket Stroh WorldCup diary giving the entire schedule of matches, at the institution and retail level. 19SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • With the Stroh initiatives ready to pour, MSBL expects a 20 per centincrease in its turnover next year, from an estimated Rs 100 crore in 1998-99.Thats reason enough to cheer.Golden Peacock raises a toast to India XIDo beer and cricket go together? Mount Shivalik Breweries Ltd (MSBL) certainlythinks so--especially given the initiatives undertaken by the hospitality industry towoo consumers to watch World Cup matches in restaurants. To benefit from thespecial packages offered by hotels, restaurants and bars, MSBL is currentlyrunning a promotion for Golden Peacock (GP), its premium lager beer brand.Called `Go for India, Go for GP, the promotion targets institutional sales andoffers consumers a one pint bottle (330 ml) free on the purchase of one bottle of650 ml GP; and one 650ml bottle free on the purchase of two 650 ml bottles of GP.The promotion will run for the entire duration of the World Cup -- irrespective ofIndias participation -- in the cities of Jaipur, Delhi and Chandigarh. 20SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10

    • Packaging Packaging, as defined by Kotler and Keller, refers to ‗all the activities ofdesigning and producing the container for a product.‘ Though the primary purposeof packaging is to serve against damage during the movement of the product, it isno longer the only purpose that it serves. Packaging, and not the product, is thefirst touch-point that the customer comes into contact with. A substandard productwithin a unique packaging might be easier to sell as against a superior productpackaged in a substandard pack. Superior packaging would not ensure repeat salesthough. Packaging is an effective tool to make the product distinguishable in theclutter. Packaging, the fifth and final stage of the brewing process, prepares the beerfor distribution and consumption. During packaging, beer is put into the vesselfrom which it will be served: a keg, cask, can or bottle. Beer is carbonated in itspackage, either by forcing carbon dioxide into the beer or by "natural carbonation". Most products have multiple levels of packaging. For example, thunderboltBeer is packed in a glass bottle (primary package). These individual bottles arethen packed in cartoon case (secondary package). Each of these packages serve adifferent purpose. 41SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10

    • Beer Advertising Advertising of beer is a topic that has frequently attracted the attention ofindustrial organization economists. For beer advertising several interrelated issuesshould be analyzed, including: 1. The importance of advertising and product differentiation for structural change in the brewing industry 2. The manner and extent to which brewers can strategically alter market shares using advertising 3. The social costs of alcohol advertising and marketing. Analyses of both issues include attempts to determine the net welfare effectsof beer advertising. On the third issue, economists have analyzed advertising‘spossible influence on alcohol consumption and underage drinking, and as acontributor to social costs such as drunken driving fatalities. Several regulatoryconcerns are related to this issue, including use of advertising bans; advertisingplacements that might target underage youth; legal rights of states under the three-tier system of alcohol distribution; and other advertising or marketing restrictionsthat affect competition in the industry (e.g., price advertising bans, price-postingand price affirmation laws) 43SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10

    • Marketing Activities :Sales : a) Making personal calls to concerned agents. b) Generating orders for products. c) Reporting on product movements or problems. d) Obtained special displays, features etc. e) Gaining new accounts. f) Checking of pricing, material and product availability in stores.Publicity : Publicity can be defined as the activity of “Securing editorial space,as divorced from paid space, in all media which are read or heard by thecompany’s customers or prospects, for the specific purpose of assisting in themeeting of sales goals. In other words, publicity refers to an appeal made to a mass ofpeople publicity in making goods, “Publicity known”. It constitute a massapproach. Publicity can also defined as the first communication aboutthe product and its detailed history through the media, radio and so on before theactual manufacture and launching of the product to get the response of the usersor consumers. Usually Sugar Industry requires no advertising publicity. 57SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10

    • According to Richard Bushik,personal selling consists of contactingprospective buyers personally. According to American marketing association, personalselling is an oral presentation in conversation with one or more prospectivepurchasers for the purpose of making sales. Personal selling is the most importantingredient in the promoting mix. It renders valuable services to consumers,producers and the society. It is an effective of sales promotion. Unlike advertisingpersonal selling is present in all the three phases of buying. Personal selling in an effective media of selling. It isthe largest single cost accounting say for 20% of net sales in several businessenterprises. Besides this, there are many other advantages of personal selling also.Distribution Channels: Distributional channels those systems of economicinstitutions through which a producer of goods delivers them into the hands oftheir users. As society shifted from producing things in the home to buying goodsmanufactured in centralized locations, there arose a need for some means todistribute the products from the central points of production to the dispersedpopulace. Channels of distribution furnish this bridge between the producer andthe consumer. 59SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • Tremendous amount of time and moneywould be expended in just acquiring the minimum amount of goods one wouldneed for survival. Marketing channels funnels the goods demanded by theconsumer to the place where he wishes to purchase them, and create three basicutilities, viz.1. Place2. Ownership, and3. Time Marketing institutions must move the goods from point of production to the pointof purchase i.e. consumption. this creates place utility, because goods will haveno value to the buyer If they are still in hands of manufacturer Marketing channels arrange for the transfer of title of the goods from the manufacturer to the buyer. This creates ownership utility. Marketing channels must have arranged goods available to the user when he wants them, this creates time utility. In great part of US bathing suits gave little value to the consumer in the month of January, in fact, the manufacturer Of swimming apparel must make them during the winter because a substantial amount of lead time is necessary to ensure that ample merchandise is on hand at that time is demanded. Channels of distribution frequently absorb much of this difference in time between production and consumption. This statement does not imply that all marketing activities do not have a bearing on the creation of these utilities. Although advertising may stimulate ownership utility by making a person want something, the actual ownership utility is created on the transfer of title from the retailer to the individualThe title does not always automatically follow the actual trail of the merchandise. 60SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • Channel Originated Behavior: It should not be assumed that marketing channels are passive institutions moving only at the order of manufactures. Most aggressive middleman will institute the economic behavior of their own when they see a need for it market place. Many retailers and wholesalers have originated their own brands with which they compete in the market place side by side. Often in conflict with the promotional programmes of themanufacturers with whom middleman deal they originate promotions of their own.A food manufacturer have a certain promotion under way which requires a manfloor display in super market, but the super market owner may have promotionalplan of this own that do not provide for such display. In fact middlemen havelearned through their bitter experiences of business that the interests of themanufacturer are not always identical with theirs. Often middlemen modify amanufacturer product in an attempt to make it more appealing to the consumer.Ready-to-wear stores will frequently change the labels and alter some ofaccessories of the apparel they sell. Intact, middlemen are influential in determining the actual location at which the merchandise will be delivered to the customers. Although manufacturers have some degree of control over location through their selection of outlets but in fact, it is the dealer who will make the final decision concerning where the merchandise should be sold to customer. 61SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • Channel Arrangement: Four major alternative channel arrangement have been described below which differ significantly in their capability for creating sales, in their costs of operation and their susceptibility to control. Once they are choose, the firm must adhere to them for a substantial period of time. 1. The first channel consist of direct sales of goods by producer to ultimate 2. The seconds marketing channel shows one selling intermediates between the producer and the ultimate consumer. If the middlemen is retailer, his function is to purchase the producer‘s goods and resale them at a profit. They deal with many producers. P-R-C 3. The third marketing channel shows two different selling intermediaries. The most common example consists of wholesaler and retailer. This is known as the linkage. P-W-R-CThe last channel consists of three selling intermediaries where a jobber usuallyintervenes between the wholesalers and the retailers. The linkage is P-W-J-R-C.The jobber buys from wholesalers and sells to small retailers, who generally arenot serviced by the large wholesalers P = PRODUCER, W=WHOLESALER, J=JOBBER, R=RETAILER, C=CUSTOMERSales promotion is a tool used to achieve most of the five major promotionalobjectives discussed in the Promotion Decisions tutorial:Building Product Awareness – Several sales promotion techniques are highlyeffective in exposing customers to products for the first time and can serve as keypromotional components in the early stages of new product introduction.Additionally, as part of the effort to build product awareness, several salespromotion techniques possess the added advantage of capturing customerinformation at the time of exposure to the promotion. 62SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • In this way sales promotion can act as an effective customer informationgathering tool (i.e., sales lead generation), which can then be used as part offollow-up marketing efforts. Creating Interest – Marketers find that sales promotions arevery effective in creating interest in a product. In fact, creating interest is oftenconsidered the most important use of sales promotion. In the retail industry anappealing sales promotions can significantly increase customer traffic to retailoutlets. Internet marketers can use similar approaches to bolster the number ofwebsite visitors. Another important way to create interest is to move customers toexperience a product. Several sales promotion techniques offer the opportunity forcustomers to try products for free or at low cost.Providing Information – Generally sales promotion techniques are designed tomove customers to some action and are rarely simply informational in nature.However, some sales promotions do offer customers access to product information.For instance, a promotion may allow customers to try a fee-based online servicefor free for several days. This free access may include receiving productinformation via email.Stimulating Demand – Next to building initial product awareness, the mostimportant use of sales promotion is to build demand by convincing customers tomake a purchase. Special promotions, especially those that lower the cost ofownership to the customer (e.g., price reduction), can be employed to stimulatesales. 63SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • Reinforcing the Brand – Once customers have made a purchase salespromotion can be used to both encourage additional purchasing and also as areward for purchase loyalty (see loyalty programs below).Promotional Strategy1. Deciding Promotional MixPersonal selling, advertisement and sales promotion are some of the promotionalmethods. During most of the situations two or more promotional methods are to beused for each campaign. Generally with the help of a single method it is notpossible to succeed. Advertising needs the support of personal selling or display toincrease the sales. Sometimes even the personal selling alone cannot be successfulwithout the support of advertisement.An ideal promotion mix is that situation where the total expenditure incurred forvarious promotion methods is minimum and sales by such mix is maximum.Promotion mix means finding out the proper ratio of usage of different methods ofpromotion. The management must find out, how much amount should be spent oneach promotional activity. Promotional mix is influenced by the following factors. 64SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
    • (a) Nature of the productNature of the product will be decide the promotional mix. For consumer goodsadvertisement and dealer display will have more effect. Industrial goods with hightechnology will need much of personal selling and cosmetics, blades etc, willrequire more of advertisement than personal selling and display(b) Nature of the CustomerIf the communications are mostly to middlemen, then personal selling will be moreeffective and very little spending on advertisement will do. If information are to bepassed to consumers and when the number of consumers is large, it is better toadvertise. Especially if customers are scattered, then advertisement alone can besuccessful.(c) Nature of the MarketIf market for a product is only local then personal selling alone will be sufficient. 65SHIV SACHDEVA MBA, SESSION-2008-10
