  • With the direct model, customers have the ability to customer-build their PC directly with a Dell associate. This is a great way for many people because:They can get exactly what they want in a PC and not have to pay for anything they don’t need or wantThe orders are delivered directly to the customerThe customer can facilitate the buying process without having to leave their residenceConversely, the disadvantages to the direct model are:Customers have to wait to receive their orderCustomers can not touch and feel the system or try it out before they make a purchaseThe direct model is the foundation that Dell built its reputation on but the company will adapt and evolve its business to meet the changing needs of customers.
  • Why is the retail environment important to Dell as a company?Expanded customer base- Even in today’s connected era, there are still people who are do not feel comfortable shopping online or ordering products over the phone. Dell’s presence in retail will benefit those customers who like to make transactions in person.Immediate purchasing power- Another advantage to retail stores is that customers have the ability to purchase a product immediately. The benefit of our direct business is that customers can personalize their but systems but then they have to wait for it to be built and shipped. For customers who want a quality, reliable system but don’t like to wait will be pleased to see Dell computers on the shelves of major retailers.Ability to touch/feel the system- This is perhaps one of the biggest advantages to having a presence in the retail environment- A computer system can be a significant purchase for many people and some people don’t feel comfortable with making such a significant purchase without touching and seeing the actual system that they will be getting.
  • Timing: ~4 minutes (~1 minute per segment)TRAINER NOTES: Before clicking to reveal slide contents, ASK: Who do you think Dell customers are? What are some examples of the types of customers we market to? (Allow learners to guess before giving the correct answer.) A: Example: Alienware systems are targeted to gamers.SAY: At Dell it is important to be able to identify – even generalize, based on available data – about our customers and what they want. Dell has identified 4 key customer segments. About 55% of our customers fall into one of these 4 categories. (The other ~45% are not defined, because their purchasing patterns are not as easy to define.)High-Level Descriptions of Each Customer Segment:Families with Kids: Families with Kids are (generally speaking) career-oriented, determined and organized. They need a computer that helps them perform their daily tasks (such as staying connected), so they can live their life to the fullest, relax, and be entertained. They prefer dependable, trustworthy technology backed up by the best service and support.Students / Gen Y: Actively embrace what life has to offer and enjoy reporting those episodes back to others.This segment is somewhere between 18-24 years old and either in school or recently out of school. Technology is their pipeline to consuming music, videos, blogs, and articles related to their expanding interests. They stay connected through email, social sites, IM and video chat. They are interested in being entertained - both through the content they consume and the social world they connect in. They&apos;re on the go, and they want to take their digital life with them.Gamers:Hard-core gamers span age groups, but have a common passion for dominating their opponents. Gamers want to stand out by buying cutting-edge brands with reputable performance. They need the highest performance processor, graphics card, and large displays to optimize their playing experience. When they aren’t gaming, they are experimental with their hobbies and look for ways to express their creativity. Their PC should allow them to dominate – and fulfill their creative side.Affluent Professionals: This segment is tech savvy, success-driven, and hard-working. They lean on technology to work at all times so they can stay productive – and balance their work and personal lives. They see technology as a practical tool and expect maximum efficiency and high performance backed up with dependability no matter where they are. They want the best to ensure their success.

A: Based on this data, you should position entertainment and security accessory items.*Examples of accessories you should consider positioning are on the next slide.*NOTE: These recommendations are based on aggregate customer data.

(Allow learners to guess before giving the answer below.) Home entertainment and handheld electronics: These customers are heavily focused on productivity enhancement rather than entertainment.
