LTD for. During these days of internship my work to do pre-launching strategy for the company’s product like masala, pickle through shop senses and mapping of pune city, newspaper advertising, and pamphlet etc.<br />Pre-launching strategy helps understand current and future market landscapes as they plan for new product launches. A product launch progresses through a number of important stages: internal communication, which encourages high levels of awareness and commitment to the new product; prelaunch activity, which secures distribution and makes sure that retailers have the resources and knowledge to market the product; launch events at national, regional, or local level; post-event activity, which helps sales forces and retailers make the most of the event; and launch advertising and other forms of customer communication.<br />Market analysis is a tool companies use in order to better understand the environment in which they operate. It is one of the main steps in the development of a marketing plan. The first step is to conduct market research. A good market analysis should include information on industry trends, an assessment of major competitors and their strategies, a review of the channels of distribution, and a wide variety of data on current and potential customers. The market analysis provides the input for the next step in developing a marketing plan—market segmentation, or dividing an overall market into key customer subsets, or segments, whose members share similar characteristics and needs. The company then selects from among these segments the particular markets it wishes to target, and creates a marketing plan that will appeal to the target customers.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> CONTENTS<br />CHAPTER CONTENTS PAGE NO.Chapter-1Rationale for the study 1-2Chapter-2Objective of studyChapter-3Profile of companyChapter-4Review of literatureChapter-5Research methodologyChapter-6Data analysis and interpretationChapter-7Findings and LimitationChapter-8Recommendation and SuggestionsChapter-9ConclusionChapter-10Appendix(Questionnaire and Bibliography)<br /> <br /> <br /> LIST OF FIGURES<br />SR.

Hence company does not want to loose their market base. To enhance their market share and widen their customer base it’s essential to understand the consumer psychology. By understanding consumer behavior, the marketing strategies, which adapt changes according to market dynamics, can be formulated. To verify and check the effectiveness of marketing strategy, marketer should understand the consumer profile and their preferences well in advance. <br />Company which want to enter in the market with out knowing the current market situation, is a very risky job because launching a new product in the unknown market is costlier, company can’t predict what will be result of it. There is always a threat of loss in such decision, if company is having a complete plan & knowledge of the market then defiantly it will be good opportunity & profit oriented segment for the company.   That’s why this research is fully concentrated on the current market situation of salvi product. “Pre-launch study of new product in pune city and its market potential analysis” <br />PRE-LAUNCH.<br />It helps understand current and future market landscapes as they plan for new product launches.<br />For example, Healthcare Practice works closely with pharmaceutical and biotech   clients throughout the approval, clinical trials process to help clients gain a thorough understanding of the arena within which new products will compete, and their likely positioning and market penetration once launched. Pre-launch research routinely involves qualitative and quantitative research to help company successfully launch new products. Key questions/issues facing clients in the pre-launch phase and the methodologies used to address them include: <br />Market needs opportunity assessments and preliminary product positioning:<br />Qualitative research (focus groups, one-on-one interviews) is often the starting point for needs/opportunity assessments and preliminary positioning efforts, while quantitative survey research often follows to further test and refines hypotheses derived from those efforts. Key questions focus on the perceived strengths and liabilities of current competitors and the nature and magnitude of unmet needs (opportunity) in the market; the extent to which the new product is perceived as addressing those needs; and the product features and benefits that will best differentiate and position it among key target audiences. <br />Preliminary Demand forecasts: <br />Quantitative techniques like conjoint and discrete choice analysis are frequently used to evaluate alternative product configurations; forecast revenue and share, and help clients identify the features most likely to drive or suppress trial and sustain usage in current and future markets. <br /> Pricing Research:<br />The same quantitative modeling techniques used to develop preliminary forecasts for new products are also applied to test price sensitivity assuming different product configurations, brands and market environments. <br />Market Segmentation:<br />Pre-launch segmentation helps company to identify profile and target the most receptive potential customers, and to understand the demographic, psychological and attitudinal dynamics that will propel and limit interest in the new product. <br />Research to support marketing promotions and communications:  <br />Qualitative techniques (focus groups, one-on-one interviews) are preferred methodologies. It helps in the preparation of marketing mix strategy. <br />Tracking Research:<br />Quantitative tracking research often begins in the pre-launch phase, with a baseline survey designed to assess any pre-launch awareness and impressions of a product still in development; perceptions and use of currently available competitors; and anticipated positioning and usage of the new product once launched. Periodic post-launch survey research tracks changes from baseline over time in terms of awareness, impressions and market penetration of new products.<br />PRIMARY DATA<br />Primary data is being collected during the course of project by asking questions using questionnaire survey. Primary data is obtained either through respondent, either through questionnaire or through personal interviews. I have collected the data through personal interview of the shopkeeper with the help of questionnaire.<br />SECONDARY DATA<br />Secondary data are the data already available in the form of print media materials, web sites, journals etc. I have used some magazines, web sites and course materials for that purpose.<br />CONTACT METHOD<br />Personal interview is that process in which an interviewer obtains information from respondent in face-to-face meeting. The method of collecting information through personal interview is usually carried in a structured way.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE OF THE STUDY<br />[NEVILLE WADIA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES AND RESEARCH, PUNE]<br /> <br />2.1 Title of project:-<br />Prelaunching study of new product masala in pune city and its market potential analysis<br />OBJECTIVE OF STUDY<br />To find out the scope & potential for launching of new product masala.<br />To identify major competitor operating in Pune City.<br />To find the Availability, Visibility, Freshness for the masala soaps.<br />To study the promotional activities by actively participating in it.<br />To find out the problems faced by the company, when company launch the new product.<br />To find out the expectations of dealers and retailers from the company.<br />SCOPE OF THE PROJECT<br />The study made and data collected is useful for the future planning of the Company <br />The study is further important to the organization in tuning the company’s strategies as per local market expectation. <br />The study is helpful to the organization for to understand current market situation, strategy and policies adopted by competitor.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> COMPANY PROFILE<br /> <br />[NEVILLE WADIA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES AND RESEARCH, PUNE] <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> COMPANY PROFILE:-<br /> Salvi Agro processing pvt ltd.<br /> Mont Vert Zenith,202,2nd Floor, Near Symantec Software, <br /> Opp. Purshottam Plaza,Baner,pune-411045,Maharastra,India.<br />Mr. Ajay Salvi-CFO, Salvi Groups of Companies,<br />Mr. Harshad Gaikwad, Operations & Marketing Head, <br /> INTRODUCTION OF THE COMPANY:-<br />Salvi Agro Processing Pvt.

It is used extensively in Indian cooking to add spices and flavor.<br />Definition of prelaunching:-<br />Prelaunch helps understand current and future market landscapes as they plan for new product launchesFor example, healthcare practice works closely with pharmaceutical and biotech clients throughout the approval clinical trials process to help clients gain a thorough understanding of the arena within which new products will complete and their likely poisoning and market penetration once launched.<br />The introduction of a new product to a market. A product launch progresses through a number of important stages: internal communication, which encourages high levels of awareness and commitment to the new product; prelaunch activity, which secures distribution and makes sure that retailers have the resources and knowledge to market the product; launch events at national, regional, or local level; post-event activity, which helps sales forces and retailers make the most of the event; and launch advertising and other forms of customer communication.<br />Market Analysis:<br />Market analysis is a tool companies use in order to better understand the environment in which they operate. It is one of the main steps in the development of a marketing plan. The first step is to conduct market research. Then comes market analysis, which involves critically reviewing and organizing the data collected so that it can be used in making strategic marketing decisions. A good market analysis should include information on industry trends, an assessment of major competitors and their strategies, a review of the channels of distribution, and a wide variety of data on current and potential customers. The market analysis provides the input for the next step in developing a marketing plan—market segmentation, or dividing an overall market into key customer subsets, or segments, whose members share similar characteristics and needs. The company then selects from among these segments the particular markets it wishes to target, and creates a marketing plan that will appeal to the target customers. "Small businesses that identify the needs of specific target markets—existing and potential customers who are the focus of marketing efforts—and work to satisfy those needs, are more effective marketers, The next area of a market analysis involves creating an in-depth portrait of customers. Through market research, the company tries to answer such questions as: who are the primary decision makers and purchasers; what are their main motivating factors; and when and where do they tend to buy? The key is to understand how customers make their purchasing decisions in order to be able to influence those decisions. Market research might assess such demographic features as age, gender, income level, educational background, financial situation, marital status, household size, and ethnic or religious background. Once this information has been broken down through market analysis, the company then creates a detailed description of the most desirable segment of the market to be included in the marketing plan. The market analysis should demonstrate why the target market chosen is more favorable than other segments, since the company will be investing its limited resources in marketing to that target market.<br />In addition to its role in developing the marketing plan, market analysis has numerous other implications for company strategy. "Once we understand the phenomena that underlie the behavior of our markets, we can assess our strengths and weaknesses relative to those phenomena. External threats and opportunities need to be carefully examined so that we can apply our strengths to areas with high potential and avoid major environmental pitfalls. Finally, we must link the resulting diagnosis to our corporate capabilities, strategies, and constraints in order to ensure a good fit between our marketing strategy and major corporate goals and objectives.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> RESEARCH METHODOLOGY<br />[NEVILLE WADIYA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES AND RESEARCH, PUNE] <br /> <br />RESEARCH METHODOLOGY<br />The research methodology primarily based on the secondary data collected from different sources of information. It gives a clear idea regarding the approach of the study to understand the buying behavior of the consumer behavior for masala product. To understanding the masala product scenario of pune city is an important study to make a conclusion regarding the growth of masala product in the market, acceptance of particular brand by the people, past draw backs made by the producers and the recommendation by the consumers. Source of secondary data the books, magazines, internet, television, newspaper etc. There is no particular or specific book where the complete information about consumer behavior for masala products. In this case the information from different books is collector and assimilated according to the study objective. Television is another important source of information for this project from which recent data are collected for the study. The news papers provided the desired information. Like economic times etc. these newspaper are so important that sometimes they play their role both a secondary as well as primary source of data (because sometimes the current information that is available through these newspaper are not even uploaded on internet also.) developing strategy based on the customer feedback i.e collection of primary data by considering a definite sample size of hundred.

For more than 45 years, Everest has shaped the preference for branded spice in a country where home-made blends were the norm since time immemorial. It is estimated that over 20 million households regularly use Everest spices that are available in around 400,000 outlets in more than 1000 towns across India. <br /> <br />Parampara<br />Parampara is a closely-knit family partnership company manufacturing a special spice based product termed as 'Gravy Mix'.

Here also in this survey I have found many things and according to those findings I have tried to suggest some points which can be effective to improve the sales of salvi products and the improvement in the service area.<br />Retailer or customer knows the salvi product but only in cashew products. <br />Lack of the proper advertisement and brand ambassador. So it is hard task for the retailer to make product awareness among the customer.<br />Delivery is the main area of concern for the improvement in service for salvi products.<br />Proper delivery routes are not designed so there is lack of co-ordination between ordering and distribution departments.<br />Packaging of goods for delivery is not up to the mark.<br />70% retailers are happy with in billing and payment issues which can results in building the goodwill for the salvi.<br />Salvi is aggressive towards business expansion. <br />LIMITATIONS<br />As only pune was dealt in survey so it does not represent the view of the total Indian market. <br />Market trend of Pune as all the shops were closed between 2:00pm to 4:00pm for lunch and after 5:00pm they don’t entertain. <br />When I interviewed retailers, sometimes they use to give answers under the influence of that I am the representative of the company.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS<br />[NEVILLE WADIYA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES AND RESEARCH, PUNE] <br /> <br />SUGGESTION AND RECOMMENDATIONS:-<br />The Recommendations which can be given according to the analysis done in the earlier segment are:<br />Company must try to increase market potential and sales promotion in the market.<br />Company must try to provide proper follow up with dealers as well as sub-dealers.<br />Company should concentrate more on television for advertisement, as mostly people are attracted through television adds. <br />Company should concentrate on its packing as retailers are least satisfied with it.<br />Retailers are least satisfied with quantity and price of masala so company should concentrate in this regard also.<br />Many existing retailers are not happy with the service of the company. So serious steps should be taken to keep them intact.<br />Special training should be given to delivery related personnel so that the problem about the delivery gets extinct. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS<br />[NEVILLE WADIYA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES AND RESEARCH, PUNE] <br /> <br /> CONCLUSION<br />Gone are the days when people did not have choice to make if they decided to buy somethings or to produce something. Today the situation has changed. Today’s market is much more consumer driven and the goods have to be manufactured according to the needs of the consumer if the producers ought to make profit. Consumer has become the king and his needs bear the greatest importance. Today companies have realized the importance of segmenting, targeting and position the goods as the essence of success to their long lasting existence.<br />Today in this present scenario of cut throat competition evidenced by the advent of globalisation, the corporate world has learned very quickly that differentating their products from that of their competitiors is of prime importance. <br />Prelaunching products streatgy understand current and future market landscapes as they plan for new product launches.
