      • Mouth Freshner Survey Analysis
        • Consumer_Mouth Freshner Survey.xlsx
        • A large proportion (84%) would actually purchase a mouth freshener after a smoke
        • Very low brand loyalty (22%) among smokers
        • Chlor-mint enjoys the highest preference (36%)
        • Advertisement(39%) and Taste(39%) are the two most influencing factors
        • Most popular mouth freshener advertisement is for Chlormint- Hum chlormint kyun khate hain
      • Panwalas Survey
        • Paanwala Survey_Mouth Freshener.xlsx
        • Paanwala Survey data correlates with data from consumer survey with respect to proportion of sample using mouth-freshener after a smoke(78%)
        • Chlor-Mint, once again, enjoys highest preference(33%)
        • People ask for a specific brand(68%) but Brand Loyalty lacking(12% only)
  • Step 5 – Present Findings
      • Paanwala’s Survey Findings:
        • Not offered a cut from the sales so no motivation to push for a particular brand sales
        • ITC leverages the distribution network of tobacco products and tries to influence sales of mouth freshener
        • Paanwalas may influence the sales to get rid of excess stocks
        • People buying high price cigarettes tend to buy chewing gums like center fresh
      • Mouth Freshener Survey
        • Through observational research, it was observed that people go for the mouth freshener that is first visible to them in the shop
        • Most people relate to the brand through advertisement
        • Generally, people accept the mouth freshener given by the Panwala instead of the change and thus customer loyalty is affected
  • Step 6 – Make a Decision
      • Chlormint can offer an incentives to panwalas based on their sales figures.
      • Chlormint should tie up with distributors of tobacco products to leverage on their distribution network which influences mouth freshener sales the most
      • Advertisement is most important factor from the product differentiation point of view so chlormint should adopt innovative advertisement practices with catchy one liners and jingles
      • Example - Chlor-Mint Customer Loyalty Ad.flv
      • As per suggested by the persons surveyed they would like to have their Chlor-Mint in the chewy dragee form like that of Mentos
      • Tie up with Theme-restaurants and Hookah parlors
