Young Marketers 2 - D2C

  1. 1. Welcome to D2C’s presentation TRAN VAN CUONG PHAM KHANH LINH
  2. 2. Background • Ok condoms were first launched in Vietnam in 1994 under the pilot project by DKT International & Vietnam: – Promote family planning & HIV/AIDS prevention – Intensity distribution and advertising OK was the market leader in the past • However, the new entrants has successfully entered the market • OK lacked of marketing campaigns to enhance brand awareness OK was forgotten and perceived negatively towards its product quality • Fortunately, DKT Vietnam collaborates with Golden Choice in branding & Promoting the OK Brand in 2013
  3. 3. Situational Analysis • Social-culture force – Vietnamese culture considers “sex” or “having sex” is something dirty, especially sex before marriage. – People are shy and avoid talking about sex, to learn about sex from elders and others. However, recently, Vietnamese are more open-minded about this topic, particularly young people (Generation Y). – On the other hand, because of the old conception and culture, this generation is lack of knowledge about safe sex and they often find information about this topic on the internet. A research show that, Vietnam is one of the top 10 countries that search for “sex” keyword on the internet, specifically big cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh. • Competitive force – OK used to be the market leader in the condom market but due to the lack of marketing effort, other brands took the market share and dominate this market. – Competitors (Durex, Sagami & Okamoto) offer higher quality product with different prices. – Moreover, due to the low barrier to entry, new entrants can easily enter the market. Especially, along with condoms, contraceptives pills are also widely used as an effective contraception method .
  4. 4. Positioning Map 6 5 4 Durex 3 Sagami Okamoto 2 OK 1 0 Price Durability Sensitivity Number of product lines • Ok products are perceived as the lowest quality product • Other competitors stay strong in the market • Durex is the market leader with highest brand awareness, affordable price, good product quality & offerings
  5. 5. SWOT Analysis • Strength – • – – – – The number of couples having sex before marriage at the age 18 – 24 is increasing. Young generation is more open-minded about having sex and buying/using condoms compare to the older generation. The target market is easily influenced by advertisement and new social trend. Vietnam is ranked 7th in Asia for number of Internet users. Social media such as Facebook & YouTube are very effective tools for viral marketing. More young people use smartphone. They can be reached through common applications that they usually use. Weaknesses – – – – Have enough resources & capabilities to renovate & promote new products Opportunities – • • Lack of efficient marketing campaigns Low brand image & low product availability Low sensitivity & limited product lines Inappropriate pricing strategy Threats – – – The main competitor has good marketing strategy and good advertising campaign. Competitors have better product availability. Customers may switch to other contraception methods such as oral contraceptives.
  6. 6. Target Market • Geographic – • Destination: Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) & Ha Noi (HN) Demographic – – Gender: Male & Female – Income: Middle ~ Upper (3 ~ 14.9 million VND/Month) – • Age: 18 ~ 24 years old Occupation: Student, White-collar, Blue-Collar & Housewives Psychographic – Lifestyle: Experiencers (motivated by self-expression, young, enthusiastic & impulsive consumers). • Behavioral – – – Benefit sought: avoid HIV/AIDS, STIs & Pregnancy User status: Non-User, Potential & First time Users Target Market Number: 3,000,000 people

  8. 8. Consumer Insights • Consumers perceive OK is the lowest product quality: – Too cheap – Normally given freely in HIV/AIDS prevention workshops – Country-of-origin effect (Local brand has lower quality) • Consumers lack of knowledge and information about STIs, safe-sex & they are ashamed of buying condoms in-store • Consumers want a condom with high quality: – Highly sensitive, safe/durable & wide range of flavors/product line • Consumers prefer an affordable price, not too cheap • Consumers seek for self-expression, confidence & may suit their horoscopes
  9. 9. Marketing Objectives Convey the message “OK! Get ready for any battles!” – “OK! Sẵn sàng cho mọi trận chiến!” Inform STIs & new product line/innovation (sensitivity & flavors) Enhance brand image/awareness, Bring OK brand back to evoked set/preferable brand (Top of mind awareness – TOMA) - After Phase 1: Increase brand awareness, knowledge of STIs & safe-sex. Create habit of using OK condoms in having sex. Gain TOMA position, “condom” evokes customers about OK brand. - After Phase 2: Create a trend of using OK condoms in young consumers with images of healthy, safe, “real feeling” & styles. Continue to strengthen TOMA position. Rank Top 1 in Condom “Evoked Set” (measured by survey) Increase 15% sales & 20% demand of OK condoms DKT Vietnam has enough capabilities to renovate the product in term of human & financial resources Despite there are several competitors, durex is the only one that has high brand awareness because of advertising. Hence, DKT Vietnam basically just needs to compete against durex.

We only buy this ads once every 3 months: • Magazines can be re-read, thus they are kept longer (than the newspaper), so the magazine can continue reminding the customers about the brand. • We will buy and distribute the magazines with the OK ads to hair salons. Young people often come to hair salons and in the waiting time, they read newspaper. They will see the OK ads and that will remind them about the TVC. • 2! & 2!
