  • Success and failure of product rejuvenation

    2. 2. PRODUCT REJUVINATION  Creating a large surge in sales for a product through intense marketing effort.  It Involves adding value to an existing brand by improving product attributes and enhancing its overall appeal
    3. 3. FEATURES • Less Risk Rejuvenation strategies are safer than product development, where the odds for success are low. Product development involves risk because of capital shortages, short product life cycles, keen competition, and many other potential pitfalls. To companies with lower risk propensities, the cost involved in rejuvenation is apparently more attractive than the uncertainty inherent in entering new, unfamiliar, and possibly highly competitive growth markets.
    4. 4. Lower Costs Rejuvenation strategies reduce various types of costs. Promotional costs are reduced because of prior customer familiarity. Product development costs become nonexistent, or nearly so. Fewer expenditures are required to obtain the cooperation of trade channel members. Production and technology costs are cut by capitalizing on past experience with suppliers of equipment, raw materials, and component parts. Prior marketing and distribution experience minimizes time, which translates into lower costs. New products are created from old products at a fraction of the cost incurred in developing new ones from scratch.
    5. 5.  Less Time Rejuvenation strategies also cut time in many ways. Up front product development is not required. Few product alterations are necessary to reintroduce the product. Time is further compressed because companies capitalize on prior manufacturing knowhow and on past experience with marketers, distributors, and suppliers of equipment, raw materials, and component parts. Less time translates into lower costs and higher profitability, which in turn enables firms to invest elsewhere.
    6. 6. Cheaper Market Share • Rejuvenating a product is a cheaper way to gain market share than marketing new products that must crash consumers' recognition barriers. For abandoned or declining products, markets exist that are waiting to be served. Compared to new products, for which heavy advertising is needed to build awareness, abandoned and declining products
    7. 7. • Higher Profits Abandoned and declining products may be very profitable when handled correctly. Low-growth, small-share businesses (or products) seem to generate more funds than typical startups. They follow narrow product lines, avoid price competition with leaders, and stress product quality. Efficiency, brand recognition, superior product quality, and a precise focus translate into high performance. Rejuvenated businesses can focus their endeavors in many ways--customer type, geography, product characteristics, and so on.
    8. 8. OBJECTIVES • It aims at revival of brand • Even healthy, successful brands may need occasional rejuvenation. • It helps keeps the brand live and in focus.

Examine the possibilities of creating value for customers.
