  10. 10. Exampl e 1) Background: Brand A has 2 competitors. We need to compare the promotional the first half of this year. We also the historical information about the competitor promotions. We expect to see patterns and be conclusions on the competitors’ promotional strategies. Analyze a Retail Audit 2) Findings: 3 brands have 2 promotions in the first half: + Brands B plays with in-out promotions and gains dominant position during this periods + The timing is focus (w4 to w9 and w20 to w25). It made it even more effective, arriving after the promotions of brand A and Brand C ended. + Temporary reduction price and the giraffe promotion delivered similar results with no lasting growth in baseline share. + C has a successful multipack in w9-10, while the later simple price reduction did not really add to its share. 3) Conclusion: brand B plays effectively with in-outs in discounters, while for brand A, the temporary reduction and the giraffe promotion delivered similar results. 4) What to check next in further analysis: Check the distribution levels within the channel and incorporate this information in the explanation. Collect longer historical data to see the patterns and full year promotional strategies. 5) Decision making: This analysis is very useful for the Trade Team to evaluate the promotion schedule based on what the competitors do and how successful they are. Recommendations may lead to changing the frequency and type of promotions used, even the timing within the year. If constant presence is not key for brand ’A’ in discounters, in-outs may be considered based on the success of ’B’. Brand ’C’ had considerable share growth
  11. 11. How to read Consumer Panel & Retail Audit Laszlo Zsom, www.retailauditanalysis.com Trends, trend breaks instead of month-by-month changes Time blocks with similar pattern Connected movements (e.g. pricing and market share) Fluctuations vs. real changes Looking for Seasonality Change in the speed (of growth/decline) WARNING:Take care of the significance levels At national level, an 0.1% share increase may be significant, while in a small retail channel even an 0.5%p share change may be within the statistical error level
