Unit I Big Bazaar stresses the money saving aspect of shopping .how is the combination of brand name products at low prices likely to affect the consumer perception of value at big bazaar how can big bazaar use the 4p’s of its marketing mix to enhance customers perception of the value of its total offer
"Is se sasta aur accha kahin nahi!“ ("Nowhere cheaper or better than this!"), the Big Bazaar targets itself directly at the average Indian's love of following the crowd and scrambling for a good discount.
<ul><li>Low prices. </li></ul><ul><li>Great sales and promotions. </li></ul><ul><li>Wide range of products under the one roof. </li></ul><ul><li>Many stores </li></ul>
<ul><ul><li>Big Bazaar: Positioning & Establishment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Big Bazaar has established itself in the first quadrant of Organization Value and Customer Value Matrix . The key features that have shaped in establishing of brand includes: - </li></ul><ul><li>Big Bazaar ensures that no other kirana store / departmental store are offering considerable discount compared to its own price. This helped Big Bazaar in being the "value for money" store. </li></ul><ul><li>Big Bazaar scores high on product mix as compared to kirana store. </li></ul><ul><li>Cheap and local products are heavily stocked in Big Bazaar which make it easier to attract lower middle class category of customers. </li></ul><ul><li>Promotion of kirana is rare event but Big Bazaar used this channel efficiently to establish itself as national brand. </li></ul>
Product=> a large variety of products are offered in the shop, so customers get so many different kind of items under one roof. Thus it acts as a 1 stop family shop due to its varieties. Price=> The price of all the items are less compared to the market. Customers of all class comes to Big Bazaar and get satisfied. Place=> The shop is usually located in the downtown areas in cities. so it is very convenient for customers to visit the same. Promotion=> sufficient promotion in local newspapers and TV channels and also the road shows certainly will enhance the customers perception of value.
<ul><li>Consumer Insights & Perceptions </li></ul><ul><li>Big Bazaar is based on 3-C theory of Kishore Biyani. The 3-C symbolize Change, Confidence and Consumption, and according to this theory, "Change and confidence is leading to rise in Consumption". They divided Indian customers in three categories: - </li></ul><ul><li>India One </li></ul><ul><li>Consuming class, constitutes only 14% of Indian population. </li></ul><ul><li>They are upper middle class and most of customers have substantial disposable income. </li></ul><ul><li>Initial focus of Big Bazaar. </li></ul><ul><li>India Two </li></ul><ul><li>Serving class which includes people like drivers, house-hold helps, office peons, washer-men, etc. </li></ul>
<ul><li>India Three </li></ul><ul><li>Struggling class, remaining population of India. </li></ul><ul><li>Cannot afford to inspire for better living, have hand-to-mouth existence. </li></ul><ul><li>Needs cannot be addressed by current business models. </li></ul><ul><li>The potential customers of Big Bazaar are India One and India Two. The customer insights were developed by close observation of the target set. The insights that came out were: - </li></ul><ul><li>The clean and shiny environment of modern retail stores creates the perception that such store are too expensive and exclusive, and are not meant for India Two. </li></ul><ul><li>India Two finds moves and find a lot of comfort in crowds, they are not individualistic. They prefer to be in queues. </li></ul><ul><li>Indian-ness is not about swadeshi , it’s about believing in Indian ways of doing things. </li></ul><ul><li>Indian customers prefer to purchase grains, grams, etc., after touching them, so it’s better not to sell in polythene packs. Big Bazaar has counters where you can touch wheat, rice, sugar, etc., before purchasing. </li></ul><ul><li>Advertisements about schemes and offers through local newspapers, radio in local languages, inspires customer more than the traditional ways. </li></ul><ul><li>The guards, salesman at the Big Bazaar outlets should not look smarter than customer, so they prefer not to have tie, etc., in their uniform. </li></ul>
Perception of value of an offering in the minds of customers depends on two factors, Benefits and Costs. V=B/C This means that more the benefits customers receive at a given cost more will be the value in their minds. Here, benefit means all the benefits like functional, social and emotional (as I had already explained in the previous answer). And costs does not mean only monetary costs rather it is the sum of Time (like waiting time of a shop) customers have to spend to get the product, Effort they have to put in order to get those (e.g. traveling up to the shop, searching in the shop etc.) and finally, Money, i.e. monetary price of the product. So, if you want to enhance the perceived value by using 4 P’s then you have to tune your 4 P’s in order to increase the perceived benefits or decrease the perceived costs. (Here note that every factor i.e. value, benefit and cost is as perceived by customers and nothing is absolute. So, if your customer thinks a product is not beneficial, it’s not beneficial.)
Consumer purchases are influenced strongly by or there are four factors. 01. Cultural Factor 02. Social Factor 03. Personal Factor 04. Psychological Factor .
<ul><li>Cultural Factor :- </li></ul><ul><li>Cultural factor divided into three sub factors (i) Culture (ii) Sub Culture (iii) Social Class </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Culture:- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The set of basic values perceptions, wants, and behaviours learned by a member of society from family and other important institutions. Culture is the most basic cause of a person’s wants and behaviour. Every group or society has a culture, and cultural influences on buying behaviour may vary greatly from country to country. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sub Culture :- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A group of people with shared value systems based on common life experiences and situations. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each culture contains smaller sub cultures a group of people with shared value system based on common life experiences and situations. Sub culture includes nationalities, religions, racial group and geographic regions. Many sub culture make up important market segments and marketers often design products. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Social Class:- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Almost every society has some form of social structure, social classes are society’s relatively permanent and ordered divisions whose members share similar values, interests and behaviour. </li></ul></ul></ul>
<ul><li>02. Social Factors :- </li></ul><ul><li>A consumer’s behaviour also is influenced by social factors, such as the (i) Groups (ii) Family (iii) Roles and status </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Groups :- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Two or more people who interact to accomplish individual or mutual goals. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A person’s behavious is influenced by many small groups. Groups that have a direct influence and to which a person belongs are called membership groups. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Some are primary groups includes family, friends, neighbours and coworkers. Some are secondary groups, which are more formal and have less regular interaction. These includes organizations like religious groups, professional association and trade unions. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Family:- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Family members can strongly influence buyer behaviour. The family is the most important consumer buying organization society and it has been researched extensively. Marketers are interested in the roles, and influence of the husband, wife and children on the purchase of different products and services. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Roles and Status :- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A person belongs to many groups, family, clubs, organizations. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The person’s position in each group can be defined in terms of both role and status. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For example. M & “X” plays the role of father, in his family he plays the role of husband, in his company, he plays the role of manager, etc. A Role consists of the activities people are expected to perform according to the persons around them. </li></ul></ul></ul>
<ul><li>03. Personal Factors :- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Age and Life cycle Stage:- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>People changes the goods and services they buy over their lifetimes. Tastes in food, clothes, furniture, and recreation are often age related. Buying is also shaped by the stage of the family life cycle. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Occupation :- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A person’s occupation affects the goods and services bought. Blue collar workers tend to buy more rugged work clothes, whereas white-collar workers buy more business suits. A Co. can even specialize in making products needed by a given occupational group. Thus, computer software companies will design different products for brand managers, accountants, engineers, lawyers, and doctors. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Economic situation :- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A person’s economic situation will affect product choice </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Life Style :- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Life Style is a person’s Pattern of living, understanding these forces involves measuring consumer’s major AIO dimensions. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>i.e. activities (Work, hobbies, shopping, support etc) interest (Food, fashion, family recreation) and opinions (about themselves, Business, Products) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personality and Self concept :- </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each person’s distinct personality influence his or her buying behaviour. Personality refers to the unique psychological characteristics that lead to relatively consistent and lasting responses to one’s own environment. </li></ul></ul></ul>
<ul><li>04. Psychological Factors :- </li></ul><ul><li>Motivation :- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Motive (drive) a need that is sufficiently pressing to direct the person to seek satisfaction of the need </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Perception :- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The process by which people select, Organize, and interpret information to form a meaningful picture of the world. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Learning:- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Changes in an individuals behaviour arising from experience. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Beliefs and attitudes :- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Belief is a descriptive thought that a person holds about something </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Attitude, a Person’s consistently favourable or unfavourable evaluations, feelings, and tendencies towards an object or idea </li></ul></ul>
Prove with examples that there is no reason for a brand to become obsolete no matter how long it has been in the market Unit III
<ul><li>Pagers were once hailed as the cheaper option to mobile phones. I remember mobile calls being in the range of Rs.15/- per minute and handsets the size of small weapons. Pagers were then useful for doctors, sales force and such like. The economies of the mobile phone industry changed and that put paid to the usefulness of pagers </li></ul>
HMT watches comes to mind as an example. An interesting analysis of why HMT failed against Titan . It appears that HMT failed to convert its perceived weakness of a mechanical watch into a strength. It also failed to keep pace with the changing consumer trends by not projecting a modern, attractive imagery through product innovation, advertising, merchandising etc. Polaroid is another brand that once stood for instant photography. Changes in the digital photography medium made that promise irrelevant. Similarly with Kodak photographic film. Both these had to find newer ways to sustain the business
Brand’s become obsolete due to a combination of various factors . A brand can be defined as a set of images & perceptions that a consumer has. If those perceptions are not in keeping with the changing consumer, the brand could be obsolete. <ul><li>mismanagement kills brands, not time and … time not only ages all brand identities, but kills them too. In my opinion it is people who kill brands. The brand management team and the advertising agency are collectively responsible for keeping pace with consumer needs, irrespective of time. They need to constantly tweak the brand offering and keep it relevant. The reasons behind it are:- </li></ul><ul><li>Factories burn down </li></ul><ul><li>Machinery wears out. </li></ul><ul><li>Inventories get depleted. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology becomes obsolete. </li></ul><ul><li>Image of the product </li></ul><ul><li>Brand loyalty is the only sound foundation on which business leaders can build enduring, profitable growth. </li></ul>
Johnson & Johnson, Heinz, Gillette, Coca-Cola, Kelloggs, Shell, Lever, Levis, Schweppes, Vicks, Wrigleys, Kodak , just to name a few strong brands, are all over 100 years old! Different brands place a different emphasis on these three elements. For example, the image of the product and the image of the user are dominant in forming the Malbaro image. IBM, on the other hand, emphasizes the image of the maker. But advertising is almost never the sole source of a brands image. Packaging, displays, sponsorship, direct marketing, promotion, signage, media coverage, word-of-mouth, employees and, of course, the product and its design are all sources of brand communication.
Unit IV Is price discrimination desirable? Discuss the question keeping in view pricing in the apparel industry.
Meaning: Price discrimination is the practice of one retailer, wholesaler , or manufacturer charging different prices for the same items to different customer. This is a widespread practice that does not necessarily imply negative discrimination . Price discrimination, as it is now understood, is separated into degrees. First, second and third degree price discrimination exist and apply to different pricing methods used by companies. Much depends on the understanding of the market in segments, and also the consumer’s ability to pay a higher or lower price, called elasticity of demand . A person who might pay more for an item is thought to have a low elasticity of demand. Another person who will not pay as much has a high elasticity of demand
First-degree price discrimination occurs when identical goods are sold at different prices to each individual consumer. Obviously, the seller is not always going to be able to identify who is willing to pay more for certain items, but when he or she can, his profit increases. You can see this type of price discrimination in the sale of both new and used cars. People will pay different prices for cars with identical features, and the salesperson must attempt to gauge the maximum price at which the car can be sold. This type of price discrimination often includes a bargaining aspect, where the consumer attempts to negotiate a lower price.
Second-degree price discrimination refers to companies charging lower prices for higher quantities. In companies where a client orders in bulk and is able to purchase a high number of the same items at once, the client may get a discounted rate. This rate would not apply to a client who only orders a few items at a time. In retail stores, second-degree price discrimination often exists. A reduced price may be offered if you buy two t-shirts instead of just one. This form helps to get rid of merchandise and generate more revenue for a company.
Third degree price discrimination is based on understanding the market, and occurs with great frequency. This type takes many different forms, but in all cases attempts to derive the most sales from each segmented “group” of consumers. For example, senior citizens are considered a group, and are often offered discounts at movie theaters, for transportation, in restaurants, and even in retail stores where seniors may have a “senior day” each week that allows them to take a discount on merchandise. “Students” are another segmented group that may be offered lower prices. Both seniors and students have a higher elasticity of demand and can generally afford to pay less than the average worker .
Market segmentation may also evaluate the socio-economic aspects of an area when considering elasticity of demand. It’s not uncommon to see retail grocery stores offer differing prices in an area where the retailer knows he can get more money for a product. Alternately, where only one chain store exists in a certain location, retail grocery stores might offer higher prices because people have no alternative place to shop. Another form of third degree price discrimination is temporary discounts for airfares that are meant to increase business. These discounts could be seasonal, and designed to promote the company. Those in urban areas may pay more for flights or hotel rooms than those in rural areas.
A few examples of price discrimination <ul><li> Netflix: discrimination based on usage (different plans) </li></ul><ul><li> Airline tickets: discrimination based on flexibility (same seats at different prices) </li></ul><ul><li> Packs of goods in supermarkets </li></ul><ul><li> Movie tickets </li></ul><ul><li> Rebates and discounts (senior citizen, student…) </li></ul><ul><li> Telephone plans </li></ul><ul><li> Software packages </li></ul><ul><li> Cable and Satellite TV (plans and bundles) </li></ul>
We know furthering our discussion on price discrimination in the apparel industry. The theory of price uncertainty can explain the sales and markdown practices of stores. Because of the uncertainty about the distribution of reservation price, stores set high initial prices to determine which styles/colors/designers/brand value are more highly valued by customers. Price discrimination is expected to be greater for fancy versus white shirts for imports- designers-branded versus domestically produced garments .
The price revolution (apparel merchandising, product bulking, inflation) is most vividly by the changes in the price policies . Price uncertainty identifying variables in apparel industry classified below as: <ul><li>Types of Brand – some brands name highlight fashion more than others e.g. Reid& Taylor. </li></ul><ul><li>Designers – Gorgi Armani , Bill Blass,Valentino and many more. </li></ul><ul><li>Other fashions – e.g. Zara, Laguna, Bonjour and other lesser known and younger fashion brands. </li></ul><ul><li>Chains – kapsons , Ritu wear. </li></ul><ul><li>Other manufacturer – duke , oswal. </li></ul><ul><li>Store brands – private label brands e.g. F.L.U </li></ul><ul><li>Major – arrow, Van- Hensen brands with large market share. </li></ul><ul><li>Designers clothing is usually at the forefront of style and fashion changes. Price uncertainty would be expected to be greater when selling designer labels than labels that emphasize more conventional designs and styles. </li></ul>
Unit V Do you agree with the statement: TV is the most powerful advertising medium ? Yes, I agree with the statement. To justify our answer I give an overview of TV NAV( net advertising revenue) report because growth in NAV shows the importance of this advertising medium for sales promotion and straight introduction of TV medium & advantages.
This report, commissioned by Ofcom from PwC, combines the latest econometric modeling techniques with industry thinking and expertise to build an economic model of the television advertising market.
How strong is the TV advertising market The TV advertising market may now have begun to follow a new path, with advertising of the traditional channels barely growing while revenues in the multi-channel arena grow relatively briskly.
How does the TV advertising market work? The TV advertising market can be characterized as a single market with two differentiated products: advertising on the ‘traditional’ commercial TV channels (Channels 3, 4 and 5); And advertising on the more recent ‘multi-channel’ commercial TV channels (all other commercial channels). Commercial TV channels create opportunities for advertisers by attracting audiences and broadcasting advertisements. But in the short to medium term, the commercial broadcasters have little opportunity to affect the supply of TV advertising ‘impacts’ as programmed scheduling and production decisions cannot be easily changed and the number of advertisements broadcast per hour is controlled by Ofcom/ broadcaster regulation.
From reviewing these four charts, we might categories some long run stages in the development of TV NAR (net advertising revenue): • Mid 1950s to early 1960s - a period of rapid increase in the real level of total TV NAR as ITV developed its national network and advertisers discovered the new medium; • Early 1960s to mid 1970s - a period of relatively stable real NAR as gradually declining real prices offset gradually rising numbers of impacts; demand for mainly black-and white TV advertising was limited to only a few sectors of the economy, restraining growth in expenditure on TV advertising; • Mid 1970s to late 1980s - a period of rapidly increasing TV NAR, despite general economic weakness, primarily due to rising real prices; demand for TV advertising grew strongly as a wider base of sectors from the economy were attracted to this advertising medium (perhaps related to the growth of color TV); increased demand pushed up real prices (per impact) even though viewing (and therefore the quantity of advertising) was also rising.
Late 1980s to the late 1990s - a period of strong cyclical fluctuations in TV NAR, primarily due to changes in real prices linked to the economic cycle; multi-channel channels progressively increased their audiences, at the expense of traditional channels (including the Doordarsan ); and Late 1990s to the present - the end of the Internet boom caused sharp falls in real prices, particularly for multi-channel advertising that had seen strong price growth during the boom; meanwhile, continued increases in multi-channel audiences has begun to reduce terrestrial advertising impacts. While TV could be described as a “mature medium”, given the slowdown in growth since the late 1980s, the market is characterized by quite large apparently cyclical fluctuations and a growing alternative multi-channel market .
Econometric forecasts (pooled) for two illustrative scenarios <ul><li>Illustrative TV NAR forecasts Traditional Multi-channel Total </li></ul><ul><li>(in constant 2003 prices) </li></ul><ul><li>Scenario A 2003 £2,570m £590m £3,160m </li></ul><ul><li>(weak digital 2014 £2,530m £1,470m £4,000m </li></ul><ul><li>penetration) Annual growth rate -0.2% +8.6% +2.1% </li></ul><ul><li>Scenario B 2003 £2,570m £590m £3,160m </li></ul><ul><li>(strong digital 2014 £2,430m £1,620m £4,050m </li></ul><ul><li>penetration) Annual growth rate -0.5% +9.6% +2.3% </li></ul>Source: PricewaterhouseCoopers analysis
The demand for TV advertising <ul><li>Demand for TV advertising comes primarily from private sector companies selling consumer products, although demand from government and NGOs is also significant. For companies, advertising is a type of investment in future sales, and therefore the value of advertising (in real terms) is determined by advertisers’ expectations of the future strength of consumer spending (often called “animal spirits” by economists). A strong empirical link between advertising expenditure and corporate profits has also been observed, possibly reflecting the tendency for companies to be more willing to undertake discretionary spending of any sort when profits are strong. </li></ul>
1. Introduction <ul><li>Television is the most authoritative, exciting, influential and persuasive communication channel. Consumers rely on television as the primary source of instant and timely information affecting their lives and the communities in which they live. Every day, television is viewed 253 minutes on average for news , information and entertainment. </li></ul><ul><li>Whether it is the presidential debates, the Super Bowl, an international crisis or critical weather threats, more viewers access television more than any other medium to be informed and entertained. Television's combination of site, sound and motion creates the most powerful and effective marketing platform for products, services, events and the advocacy of issues. The accessibility of free over-the-air broadcast programming will continue to make television the most effective and cost efficient choice to reach consumers </li></ul>
Why TV Advertisement? <ul><li>Television is powerful. The average person over the age of 18 spends over 200 minutes per day watching television, which is over 4 hours a day. That time an adult spends with television exceeds the combined total time spent with other media: Radio: 128 minutes, Internet: 45 minutes, Newspapers: 30 minutes and Magazines: 19 minutes. According to a recent study, "the public perceives television as the most influential, authoritative, exciting and persuasive advertising medium." ... "television was the medium where consumers were most likely to learn about products", </li></ul>
TV Advantages <ul><li>Broadcast TV is "free TV" transmitted over the air and is most commonly associated with large TV networks such as ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. TV offers the message sight, sound, motion, color and all the special effects can be afforded. TV ads are intrusive in nature. TV allows for target selection based on: </li></ul><ul><li>Geography - Where the signal reaches. </li></ul><ul><li>Time of day - Different target audiences watch TV at different times. </li></ul><ul><li>Program - Certain programs or kinds of programming will appeal to certain groups. </li></ul><ul><li>Network - Some networks have identifiable audiences that may match the target audience. </li></ul><ul><li>TV still has a certain prestige or glamour that can enhance the message. </li></ul><ul><li>TV is costly, but because it may be targeted, it may be quite cost-effective. </li></ul><ul><li>TV ads can engage the viewer's emotions and empathy (Mano, 1996). </li></ul><ul><li>Most TV is viewed at home . People feel safe at home and they are not exposed to what others think. Because of all the above, TV advertising is especially effective in helping to create an image for a product or company . Cable or Interactive TV, a company can buy time on programs that have very specific audiences. </li></ul><ul><li>The cost is lower than broadcast TV because it reaches a smaller audience. Production costs may be more affordable. May find more innovative production people here. Often cable production teams hire young writers, producers and technicians who want experience and are eager to work with. </li></ul>
The Impacts of TV Advertising <ul><li>• TV advertising has longer-term effects on sales; it has at least twice the size of short-term effects. </li></ul><ul><li>• It works long-term, by causing consumers to buy more or more often. </li></ul><ul><li>• TV ad affects more than a brand’s sales. </li></ul><ul><li>• TV commercials also have an impact on brand equity and price sensitivity. </li></ul><ul><li>TV advertising has two beneficial long-term effects: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• It builds brand equity. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>• It makes buyers less price sensitive. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Promotion has mixed effects, it can help build equity and it increases buyers’ sensitivity to discounts; and they will always want more. TV advertising affects more than consumers’ behavior and also has an impact on consumers’ beliefs and attitudes, which ultimately affect behavior </li></ul>
CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS <ul><li>As the pace of life becomes increasingly hectic , print advertising in newspapers and periodicals is becoming less effective. TV advertising is still a strong medium, but most business owners see it as expensive, complex and beyond their reach. </li></ul><ul><li>The fact is that with the advent of cable TV and the coming increases in technology, the cost of TV advertising may be considerably less than imagine . It must factor in the cost of video production; however, considering the number of customers the TV can reach, the costs are more than justified. Adults spend nearly as much time with TV as with all other media such as newspapers, radio, and magazines combined. TV excites and influences people to buy a product or service. </li></ul><ul><li>To increase the resentfulness of company’s marketing strategy, it is very important to support TV advertising with other advertising mediums such as radio, Internet or printed ads, in order to increase company or product’s image visibility. </li></ul><ul><li>A claim, which came from Philip Kotler, in his keynote address to the annual Marketing Forum, shows us the speculation about the future of TV advertisement. He told the audience: "I don't think advertising works any more. TV advertising is so average; it is a waste of money. We need other ways of reaching consumers" (Media Week, 2005). That makes us consider of a wider range of advertising mediums </li></ul>
