Convenience Goods Convenience Goods • Those purchased with a minimum of effort, because the buyer has knowledge of product characteristics prior to shopping • The consumer does not want to search for additional information (because the item has been bought before) and will accept a substitute rather than have to frequent more than one store
  20. 20. Convenience Goods Convenience Goods • Staples are low-priced items that are routinely purchased on a regular basis, such as detergent, milk, and cereal • Impulse goods are items that the consumer does not plan to buy on a specific trip to a store, such as candy, a magazine , and ice cream • Emergency goods are items purchased out of urgent need, such as an umbrella during a rainstorm, a tire to replace a flat or aspirin for a headache

  41. 41. Things to Consider in Advertising Waste Reach Waste is the portion of an audience that is not in a firm's target market. Because media appeal to mass audiences, waste is a significant factor in advertising. Reach refers to the number of viewers or readers in the audience
  42. 42. Things to Consider in Advertising Frequency Message permanence Frequency is how often a medium can be used. It is greatest for newspapers, radio, and television, where ads may appear daily and advertising strategy may be easily changed Message permanence refers to the number of exposures one advertisement generates and how long it remains with the audience
  43. 43. Things to Consider in Advertising Persuasive impact Clutter Persuasive impact is the ability of a medium to stimulate consumers. Television often has the highest persuasive impact because it is able to combine audio, video, color animation, and other appeals. Clutter involves the number of ads that are contained in a single program, issue, etc. of a medium. Clutter is low when a limited number of ads is presented and high when many ads are presented.
  44. 44. Situation Poor-response Good-response Fire breaks out in a company plant Requests for information by media are ignored Company spokesperson explains the cause of the fire and company precautions to avoid it and answers questions.

High profits reported Profits are rationalized and positive effects on the economy are cited Profitability is explained, data (historical and current) are provided, uses of profits are detailed: research, community Publicity : Poor and Good Response
  45. 45. Developing a Publicity Plan Setting objectives Outlining types of publicity Selecting media Creating Publicity messages Timing publicity messages

Samples Free merchandise or services are given consumers, generally for new items When Sunlight dishwashing liquid was introduced, free samples were mailed to consumers. Contests or sweepstakes Consumers compete for prizes by answering questions (contests) or filling out forms for random drawings of prices (sweepstakes) Publishers Clearinghouse sponsors annual sweepstakes and awards auto mobiles, houses, and other prices. Types of Sales Promotion
  50. 50. Types Characteristics Illustrations Bonus or multipacks Consumers receive discounts for purchasing in quantity Some stores run I-cent sales whereby the consumer buys one item and gets a second one for a penny. Point-of- purchase displays In-store displays remind customers and generate impulse purchases Chewing gum sales in supermarkets are high because displays arc placed at checkout counters. Special events Manufacturers or retailers sponsor celebrity appearances fashion shows, and other activities. Virtually every major league baseball team has an annual "Old Timers 'Day," which attracts large crowds. Gifts Consumers are given gifts for making a purchase or opening a new account.

  51. 51. •It helps attract customer traffic and maintain brand or store loyalty •Quick results can be achieved •Some forms of sales promotion (calendars, t-shirts , Pens etc) provide value to the consumer and are retained by them; and these forms can provide a reminder function •Impulse purchases can be increased through in-store displays Sales Promotion Advantages
  52. 52. •The image of the firm may be lessened if it continuously runs promotions. Consumers may view discounts as representing a decline in product quality and believe the firm could not sell its offerings without them. •When coupons, rebates, or other special deals are used frequently, consumers may not make purchases if the items are sold at regular prices. Instead, they will stock up each time there is a promotion Sales Promotion Disadvantages
  53. 53. •Sometimes sales promotions shift the focus away from the product onto secondary factors. Consumers may be attracted by calendars, coupons, or sweepstakes instead of by product quality, functions, and durability. In the short run this generates consumer enthusiasm. In the long run this may have adverse effects on a brand's image and on sales, because a product- related differential advantage has not been developed. Sales Promotion Disadvantages
  54. 54. Distribution Planning and Pricing Strategy

  61. 61. Factors Affecting Pricing Decisions Consumers Competitors Cost Channel Members Government Total Effects on Price Decisions
  62. 62. Consumers and Price Decisions Consumers •The relationship between price and consumer purchases and perceptions is explained by two economic principles — the law of demand and price elasticity of demand •The law of demand states that consumers usually purchase more units at a low price than at a high price •The price elasticity of demand defines the sensitivity of buyers to price changes in terms of the quantities they will purchase
  63. 63. Consumers and Price Decisions Elastic Demand In-elastic Demand •Elastic demand occurs if relatively small changes in price result in large changes in quantity demanded •Numerically, price elasticity is greater than 1 •With elastic demand, total revenue goes up when prices are decreased and goes down when prices rise •Inelastic demand takes place if price changes have little impact on quantity demanded •Price elasticity is less than 1 •With inelastic demand, total revenue goes up when prices are raised and goes down when prices decline
  64. 64. Consumers and Price Decisions Unitary Demand . Unitary demand exists if changes in price are exactly offset by changes in quantity demanded, so that total sales revenue remains constant. . Price elasticity is 1
  65. 65. Competitors and Price Decisions Competitors •Another element contributing to the degree of control a firm has over prices is the competitive environment within which it operates
  66. 66. Competitors and Price Decisions Market- Controlled Price environment Company- Controlled Priced environment •Characterized by a high level of com-petition, similar goods and services, and little control over price by individual companies •Characterized by moderate competition, well-differentiated goods and services, and strong control over price by individual firms
  67. 67. Competitors and Price Decisions Government- Controlled Price environment Characterized by prices set by the government. Examples are public utilities , buses, taxis, and state universities
  68. 68. Channel Members and Price Decisions Channel Members • A wholesaler or retailer can gain stronger control over price by stressing its importance as a customer to the manufacturer, refusing to carry unprofitable product, stocking competitive items, and developing strong dealer brands so that consumers are loyal to the seller and not the manufacturer. • Sometimes retailers engage in selling against the brand , whereby they stock merchandise ,place high prices on it, and then sell other brands for lower prices. This is often done to increase the sales of their own brands.
  69. 69. Channel Members and Price Decisions Channel Members • To ensure channel member cooperation with price decisions, the manufacturer needs to consider four factors : channel member profit margins, price guarantees, special deals, and the impact of price increases
  70. 70. Government and Price Decisions Government Price fixing regulations Prohibitions against price discrimination among channel members Unfair sales acts : predatory pricing
  71. 71. Cost and Price Decisions Cost Cost of raw materials and supplies Labor cost Advertising Cost Distribution Cost Pricing Decisions
  72. 72. Price Strategy Price Strategy Cost-based Price Strategy Demand-based Price Strategy Competition-based Price Strategy
  73. 73. Price Strategy Cost-based Price Strategy Demand-based Price Strategy The marketer sets prices after researching consumer desires and ascertaining the range of prices acceptable to the target market With a cost-based price strategy , the marketer sets prices by computing merchandise, service, and overhead costs, and then adding the desired profit to these figures
  74. 74. • The marketer sets prices in accordance with competitors • Prices may be below the market, at the market, or above the market, depending on customer loyalty, services provided, image, real or perceived differences between brands or stores, and the competitive environment Competition- based Price Strategy Price Strategy
