  8. 8. FOOTWEAR EXPORT HOUSE MARKET ENTRY  As a start-up company we will be following “CONTRACTUAL BASIS” of production system.  “Built-to-order” type production system will be our USP.  Engaging into long term contracts with the Germany’s shoe manufacturers for sustained working of the company.  Entering into the medium priced market by launching our own brand and giving styles and shapes which are unique to the German market.  Establishing a name for self while also catering to the niche/high end market via the companies established in Germany.
  9. 9. FOOTWEAR EXPORT HOUSE SEGMENTATION AND DISTRIBUTION  Two types of market segmentation – Niche/High-end and medium priced  Niche/High end- catering through “Build-to-order” with the logo of the company which has contracted.  Medium priced – Catering through own branding by giving them new shapes and styles which appeal to the young generation of customers who want something different. Different shapes, sizes, patterns, colours combinations, cool graphics printed onto the shoes will make our brand unique and distinctive. DISTRIBUTION  Distribution for niche/high end product will be contracted company’s own responsibility to sell as we will just manufacture them and the branding onto it will be contracted company’s.  In the early phases of the distribution of the medium priced segment of shoes with our own branding, we will tap local multi-brand sellers to sell our brand and create awareness of the brand.  Once the demand and popularity picks up, we will use the shelf space of the branded retailers to sell our brand, thus creating a positive image in the minds of our customers.

FOOTWEAR EXPORT HOUSE TRANSPORTATION BUILT TO ORDER Method : FOB(Free on Board) For Built to order type of selling, we will be using FOB method which means we will be transporting to the shipper’s transport and also paying inland customs duty. Once on the board of the transport vehicle it will be buyers responsibility. OWN BRAND Method : DDP(Delivery Duty Paid) For our own brand, initially we will using DDP type of method to get our brand to the country and sell them through the proposed system of distribution. As the demand and popularity picks up we will eventually move to CIF(cost, insurance and freight)
