  68. 72. Recommendations: - <ul><li>5. Market Positioning : The company should modify its advertising strategy and educate the customers about its age-old existence and enhance its brand image. This will appeal to the target customers of middle and older age groups apart from the younger generation in which PEPSI has a good hold. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Placing Strategy: Rural market being a very potential segment needs very quick and prompt efforts to be taken to capture this high volume market. </li></ul><ul><li>7. Pricing : Soft drink is still considered a treat virtually a luxury, so it possible company should cut down its price especially of cans. </li></ul><ul><li>8. PR: A company may create favorable impression among the youth if they sponsors small events like college festivals, university programs, school functions, fashion shows, quiz programs etc. </li></ul>
  69. 73. CONCLUSION <ul><li>As a result, market segmentation is important to companies so that firms can easily enter the market and have a potential growth. If PepsiCo does not target young population in the beginning, it is hard to occupy the market and compete with its competitor which is Coca-cola. Pepsi can continue hire popular celebrities to advertise their products in different market such as David Beckham attracts sport enthusiast and Jay Chou attracts youths where this really can boom the sales. Moreover, Pepsi can come out with as many new innovative products as they can depend on countries’ cultures. With this target, Pepsi can enter many countries’ market to gain more profits. </li></ul>
