  • Industry
Overview
 • 


In
the
U.S.,
sales
of
shampoo
and
condi5oner
reached
$5.3
 billion
in
2007,
an
increase
of
6.4%
in
current
prices
from
the
 previous
year.
 • 


A
2008
Mintel
research
forecasts
that
the
shampoo
and
 condi5oner
market
will
increase
24%
by
2012.
 • 


However,
the
bath
products
segment
(bubble
bath
and
bath
 fragrances),
is
declining
as
consumers
switch
to
more
liquid
body
 washes.

Given
E‐care’s
price
range,
we
selected
the
industry’s
compe5tors
 based
on
price,
analyzing
private
and
premium
labels.

 • 


Two
categories:

 





‐“low
price,”
with
an
average
price
of
$2.25

 





‐“high
price,”
with
an
average
price
of
$4.00+


 • 


Due
to
the
lack
of
shelf
presence,
generic
brands
were
not
 included
in
our
compe55ve
analysis.

 • 


We
also
conducted
a
brief
survey
among
E‐care’s
poten5al
target
 group.

  • Strengths
&
Weaknesses
 Strengths:
 •  Within the bath products segment, companies with an emphasis on natural and children’s products are in demand. •  Since there are multiple niches within the shampoo category, consumers are willing to pay for products that will address their own personal hair needs. Weaknesses:
 • 


The health and beauty industry is very cluttered so it makes it challenging for a new brand to stand out. •  The bath products segment, in particular, is declining as more consumers switch to liquid body washes.
  • Opportuni3es
&
Threats
 Opportunities: •  Although children’s products and natural/organic bath products are currently in demand, there seems to be little to no organic children’s bath products. •  Most female consumers in our research findings think smell is the most important factor for them to make the purchasing decision; this will be a good opportunity to go in developing an enduring smell shampoo. Threats: •  Big companies have large budgets for advertising spending. •  More retailers are trying a variety of approaches to strengthen the mass market specialty category by creating their own product lines, particularly in the bath and skin care categories.

Statement
 “To health and beauty-conscious individuals, E-care is the personal care brand that provides natural care to the mind, body and spirit through its dedication to nature and the community.”
  • Crea3ve
Idea
 •  Tagline: “Nature’s answer for….” - Examples Nature’s answer for tranquil hair Nature’s answer for restful hair Nature’s answer for a charming skin - To be used at all touchpoints including ads and shampoo bottles. •  Logo & Design: - To be used at all touchpoints including ads and shampoo bottles.
  • Media
Planning
 In Store: •  Using sachets as free samples for the products. •  The shelf itself can be made ‘earthy’, by putting plants or ivy leaves, butterflies and other things of nature in and around the shelf. •  Pamphlets: In order to inform consumers of E-care’s uniqueness, pamphlets will be available on the shelf through a dispenser. •  E-care representative: An E-care shampoo representative will be available on occasion at Wegmans. Time frame: weekdays between 5-7 pm and on weekends. •  Product Integration: E-care shampoos should be placed in both the shampoo and the skin care aisles.
  • Media
Planning
 Outdoor: •  Product demonstrations: In the parking lots of supermarkets and malls, we will set up booths where there will be a product demonstration by an E-care representative. The rep would actually wash consumers’ hair with E- care shampoos. Free samples of the product will also be distributed to consumers who do not wish to have their hair washed.
  • Media

  • Media
Planning
 Contest: •  Conducted within 1-3 months of the product launch. Consumers would answer a question “If E-care is nature’s answer to a beautiful and healthy you, what is your answer to nature?” •  The winner gets to be the spokesperson of the brand for a period of 6 months. The spokesperson can come in TV ads or online video ads. Banner ads: •  Banner advertisements would be placed on various relevant sites to attract consumers to the E-care website.
