  19. 19. 1.OMNI-CHANNEL IS THE NEW BUZZWORD FOR MARKETERS  A perfect omni-channel strategy would mean an optimal integration of all retail channels based on efficient analytics.  Today’s customer is not only well informed but also always connected to some device or the other. Browsing and shopping are done at their own convenience and on the channel of their choice.  It’s a reality that marketers have to live with. The wise ones have developed or are in the process of developing hybrid models which combine the best benefits of physical retail, online retail and direct marketing.
  20. 20. Continued……  The surge in online retail made the retailers like Future Group, Shoppers’ Stop etc take a step back to rethink their strategies and Omni-channel emerged as the best solution for this brigade.  The increasing threat from online players, limitations to the space available for physical stores are all pushing brands to adopt technology solutions for an omni- channel retail strategy.
  21. 21. 2.E-RETAIL: SMALLER CITIES LAP UP OFFBEAT GOODS FROM SNAPDEAL, EBAY, FLIPKART  Online retail has revolutionized the way Indians shop.  Penetration of FMCG products and consumer durables are very high across India. But in smaller towns and cities, people don't have access to many categories that are easily available in metros.  So the only option for people there is to shop online because, for many categories, the reach of online players is greater than that of their brick and mortar counterparts.  We have seen faster e-commerce growth in non-metros due to the advent of low priced smartphones and internet access  Consumers in non-metros are not only buying mainstream products but also unique items such as DJ turn tables, body-piercing jewellery, dashcams, temporary hair colour styling gel.  Apart from the regular goods like FMCG and Electronics,E-Retailers are also seeing growth in the demand for Off-Beat products like adult diapers , blood glucose meters and solar lanterns.

  23. 23. 3.MALLS ARE LOSING THEIR MOST LUCRATIVE CUSTOMERS In the last four years, more than two dozen malls have shut down. Another 60 malls are on the brink of death, The New York Times reported.

Meanwhile, teen mall traffic has dropped 30% to 29 visits per year since 2007. women are choosing to shop at discount and specialty stores over malls when it comes to purchases for their homes. For teens, restaurants have replaced shopping malls as a favorite hang-out spot.
  24. 24. 4.BEYOND BOUNDARIES: HOW RURAL MARKETING HAS TRANSFORMED FINANCE COMPANIES Challenges for banks:- In the last few months, over 115 million new zero balance bank accounts have been opened to bring in a larger chunk of the population under the ambit of the financial services. Banks need to create physical (brick & mortar) infrastructure, invest in managing cash and recruit/retain competent employees willing to work in these remote locations, engage with reliable business-correspondents and ensure high levels of service. Volatile income patterns make financial discipline a difficult task for rural populations. Simplicity of product design is another key requirement to attract rural population .
  25. 25. Methods of communication by banks . The communication approach is therefore completely different. IndusInd relies on audio-visual campaigns in the vernacular language and group meetings as opposed to distributng pamphlets. Entertainment (like puppet show/ folk dance), free medical camps or promoting a beneficial government programme are one of the best ways to connect with them. During haats and at religious centres, the bank tries to make the audience aware of government sponsored schemes like the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana and the Kisan Credit Card. Highlights of Axis Bank's three year old campaign include using local entertainment dance and drama forms like Jhumar in Punjab or Bhavai in Gujarat; slipping in banking information on the back of Krishi Pragatishala, an agri expert programme and finally comic books published in multiple languages.
  26. 26. 5.DO CONTINUING CAMPAIGNS DELIVER BETTER? An engaging story unfolding in parts, keeping viewers coming for more. 'What's next?' remained the question on people's minds. More recently came Tata Sky's love story for its daily recharge option, with each chapter of the story unveiled in a new TVC. Continuing campaigns do build engagement because you want the customer to have the connect. There is great merit in continuing campaigns and extending the campaign over a period of time.
  27. 27. Continued……. The biggest requirement for a serialised campaign is money. It’s only the advertisers who have a high exposure and production budget who can afford to do this. This is just another form of storytelling and at times the idea could be more conducive to a serialised story. But it’s a risky proposition. It presupposes huge engagement from the audience and if that engagement is not there, it becomes an exercise where only the people who have written the story feel good while the general audience couldn’t care less. Unless the story is dramatically gripping, this format is bound to have a lower return on investment.” If people are entertained by the messaging, it does not really matter what format you use in your messaging. It also largely depends on the objective of the campaign. A connected campaign can backfire if the idea is boring. If the idea is fresh and relevant and the execution is authentic and engaging, it will work. It may be a standalone film, or a campaign or movement idea that's ongoing." The overall view is that digital would most definitely see a lot more of this kind of advertising. TV may not be flexible enough for this form of storytelling to become a mainstay.
  28. 28. 6.SMART SHOPPING LIST CONCEPT DEBUTS  Smart brands are quickly moving beyond simple eCommerce, using omni-channel retail to maximise their sales and customer relations.  They can then either pop in for a closer look or make the purchase and simply visit the shop to collect it.  To create an effortless consumer experience and break down barriers between digital and physical retail
  29. 29. continued…….  Booodl is a smartphone app that notifies consumers when they come in close proximity to products from their digital wish list. To begin, users create their list adding ‘wants’ online. Then, when they are out and about, the app notifies the customer when one of their ‘wants’ is stocked nearby: the user can then get directions to the shop, message the store or even order an Uber to the location, all within the app.
  30. 30. 7.HOW WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS ARE GAINING BIG FROM THE ONLINE RETAIL REVOLUTION  As India sees a revolution in its $300 billion retail industry with the emergence of online marketplaces such as Amazon, Snapdeal and Flipkart, thousands of women are gaining financial independence by selling products  These women now constitute about 20% of the 1 million sellers on platforms that form the $12 billion online retail industry  It gives women the advantage of Minimum investment, Maximum profit guaranteed, Make money from home  Women have become micro-entrepreneurs
  31. 31. Continued……….  But on Flipkart, of the 30,000-odd sellers, about 20% are women. Interestingly, about 15% of these women are customers-turned-sellers. "These women have identified the gap and launched their own brands offering regional handicrafts, antique pieces, and designer wear.  Some of the success stories highlighted:- Namita Jain, a former homemaker who saved about Rs 4 lakh to invest in starting Neerav Stores on Delhi-based online marketplace Snapdeal. Arti Goel, 47, started the experiment of selling online three years ago as an addendum to her husband's home furnishing supply business to hospitals and hotels. Within three years, the online business has taken over the offline.
  32. 32. 8.CUSTOMER LOYALTY: THAT’S WHERE SAMSUNG BEATS APPLE  A new survey suggests that Samsung enjoys markedly more customer loyalty than Apple.  Customers’ perceived value, brand trust, customers’ satisfaction, repeat purchase behavior, and commitment are found to be the key influencing factors of brand loyalty.  Customer loyalty goes a long way in defining how a company is being received by its customers over a period of time and is indicative of the brand value.
  33. 33. Continued……  The SurveyMonkey defines industry benchmarks to help companies judge where brands stand. Samsung scored a 35 for customer loyalty, while Apple managed a 28. Both scores were above the industry benchmark of 19.  Where Apple did better, was in customer service satisfaction. There, it scored a 41 percent positive rating, while Samsung managed only 25. Both companies may still have much to do. The industry benchmark for customer service satisfaction is 75 percent.

  36. 36. 10.MAKE IN INDIA: FOREIGN FIRMS PRODUCING IN INDIA MAY GET TO SELL ONLINE  The government is keen to raise the share of manufacturing in the country's GDP, for which the prime minister has launched a dedicated programme 'Make in India' to attract investments to the sector.  Foreign investors setting up manufacturing facilities in India will be able to access the country's rapidly growing online market as part of the Narendra Modi-led government's plan to attract overseas capital in the languishing manufacturing sector.  The move will give a big boost to foreign funded home-grown entities such as Fabindia that are engaged in manufacturing as well as retailing and are keen to expand to online platforms while making the sector lucrative for foreign investment  To ensure consistency in policy and prevent tax issues later, the government will pick up what constitutes manufacturing from the income tax law
  37. 37. Continued……..  Allowing manufacturers to sell directly to consumers through ecommerce is seen as a big incentive to attract foreign investment in the sector.  The move could also open the doors for entities that are engaged in third-party manufacturing and outsource part of production to local producers to widen their customer base through online selling.
