  5. 5. Idea Generation Idea generation is a continuous, systematic search for new product opportunities. It involves delineating sources of new ideas and methods for generating them.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 5
  6. 6. Methods for Generating Ideas Dimensional Analysis lists all of the physical characteristics of a product type. Having obtained such a list, creativity can be triggered by asking questions such as: "Why is the product this way?“, "How could the product be changed?" or "What would happen if one or more of the characteristics were removed?"visit: www.studyMarketing.org 6
  7. 7. Problem Analysis is a need-assessment technique designed to develop an inventory of consumer problems in a particular product or service category and to serve as a basis for new product or service ideas.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 7
  8. 8. Benefit Structure Analysis determines what specific benefits and characteristics are desired by consumers within a particular product or service category and identifies perceived deficiencies in what is currently provided.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 8
  9. 9. Scenario Analysis identifies opportunities by capitalizing on projected future environments and associated consumer needs.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 9
  10. 10. Product Screening After the firm identifies potential products, it must screen them. In product screening, poor, unsuitable, or otherwise unattractive ideas are weeded out from further actions.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 10
  11. 11. • Today, many companies use a new-product screening checklist for preliminary evaluation. • In it, firms list the new-product attributes considered most important and compare each idea with those attributes. • The checklist is standardized and allows ideas to be compared.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 11
  12. 12. Concept Testing Concept testing presents the consumer with a proposed product and measures attitudes and intentions at this early stage of development.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 12
  13. 13. Concept testing is a quick and inexpensive way of measuring consumer enthusiasm. It asks potential consumers to react to a picture, written statement, or oral description of a product. This enables a firm to determine initial attitudes prior to expensive, time-consuming prototype development.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 13

  18. 18. Test Marketing Test marketing involves placing a product for sale in one or more selected areas and observing its actual performance under the proposed marketing plan.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 18
  19. 19. The purpose is to evaluate the product and pretest marketing efforts in a real setting prior to a full- scale introduction.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 19
  20. 20. Rather than inquire about intentions, test marketing allows actual consumer behavior to be observed. The firm can also learn about competitive reactions and the response of channel members.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 20
  21. 21. After testing is completed, the firm is ready to introduce the product to its full target market. This is commercialization and corresponds to the introductory stage of the product life cycle.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 21
  22. 22. Commercialization involves implementing a total marketing plan and full production.visit: www.studyMarketing.org 22
