Editor's Notes

  1. New Product Development Process This CTR corresponds to Figure 9-1 on p. 275 and relates to the discussion on pp. 275-286. Stages in New Product Development Idea Generation . This stage is the systematic search for new product ideas. Sources for new product ideas include internal sources, customers, competitor's products, distributors & suppliers, and other sources. Screening. This stage focuses on reducing the number of ideas by dropping poor ideas as soon as possible. This helps reduce costs and focus attention more productively. Concept Development and Testing. This stage involves translating ideas into product concepts or detailed versions of the ideas stated in meaningful consumer terms. Concepts are then tested on target consumers. Marketing Strategy. This stage consists of three parts. The first part describes the target market, the second part outlines the product's projected price, distribution, and budget for the first year, the third part describes long-term sales, profit goals, and marketing mix strategy. Business Analysis. This stage reviews the sales, costs, and profit projections for the product to find out if they satisfy overall company objectives. Product Development. This stage involves bringing the product concept into existence as a physical product to ensure that the idea is a workable product. Test Marketing . This is the stage at which the product and marketing program are implemented in one or more realistic market settings. Commercialization. This stage involves actually introducing the new product into the competitive marketplace. In this stage, the company must make decisions involving when to introduce, where, to whom, and how.
  2. Test Marketing This CTR relates to the discussion on pp. 282-284. Test Marketing Standard Test Markets . Under this approach, the company finds a small number of representative test cities, conducts a full marketing campaign in those cities, and then measures and evaluates performance. This provides a “real world” picture of how the product performs. But there are drawbacks. Standard testing is expensive, long, and tips competitors to company strategy. Controlled Test Markets . This approach uses a research firm that has designated store placement space for their clients. Participating stores receive a fee. Some services like Scantrack (Nielsen) and BehaviorScan (IRI) offer computerized monitoring of individual consumer panels whose television viewing is cross-tabulated with store purchases. Controlled testing is quicker and less expensive than standard testing. Concerns revolve around representativeness of the test markets (small size) and tipping off competitors. Simulated Test Markets . This approach creates a simulated shopping environment by the company or research firm. Consumers are exposed to promotions and then given money to shop with. Purchase patterns are observed and consumers are interviewed afterward by researchers. Simulated test marketing is inexpensive and quick. Representativeness and demand characteristics are concerns and this approach might be used as a pretest for a go-no go decision on further testing.
  3. The Product Life-Cycle This CTR corresponds to Figure 9-2 on p. 288 and relates to the material on pp. 287-293. Instructor’s Note: This CTR can be used to overview the life cycle concept. Strategies appropriate for each stage are discussed on the following CTRs. Product Life Cycle Stages Product Development. Development begins when the company finds and develops a new product idea. During development the product has costs but no sales. Development costs must be strategically weighed against the projected length of the product's PLC. Introduction. During the introduction of new products initial sales growth is slow as the market is just becoming aware of the product. Profits are usually nonexistent at this stage due to heavy promotional spending. Growth. This stage is characterized by rapid market acceptance of the product and increasing profits. Maturity . In maturity there is a slowdown in sales growth as the product has achieved acceptance by most potential customers. Profits may level off or decline as marketing costs increase to defend existing market share. Decline. In this period sales begin to fall off and profits decline dramatically.
  4. Introduction. In this stage marketers spend heavily on promotions to inform the target market about the new product's benefits. Low or negative profits may encourage the company to price the product high to help offset expenses. companies can concentrate on skimming strategies to generate high profits now or on penetration strategies to build market share and dominant the market for larger profits once the market stabilizes. Product Life Cycle Strategies Product Life-Cycle Strategies This CTR relates to the material on pp. 289 and 293.
  5. Product Life-Cycle Strategies This CTR relates to the material on pp. 289-290 and 293. Product Life-Cycle Strategies Growth. In this stage the company experiences both increasing sales and competition. Promotion costs are spread over larger volume and strategic decisions focus on growth strategies. Strategies include adding new features, improving quality, increasing distribution, and entering new market segments.
  6. Product Life Cycle Strategies Maturity. In this stage the company must manage slower growth over a longer period of time. Strategic decisions made in the growth stage may limit choices now. Marketing managers must proactively seek advantage by either market modification to increase consumption, product modification to attract new users (quality, feature, and style improvements), or marketing mix modification in an attempt to improve competitive position. Product Life-Cycle Strategies This CTR relates to the material on pp. 290-292 and 293.
  7. Product Life-Cycle Strategies This CTR relates to the material on pp. 292-293. Product Life Cycle Strategies Decline. In this stage the costs of managing the product may eventually exceed profits. Rate of decline is a major factor in setting strategy. Management may maintain the brand as competitors drop out, harvest the brand by reducing costs of support for short term profit increases, or drop the product (divest) altogether.
