  10. 10. METHODS USED: For change in awareness , trial etc. in large metros a pre and post launch primary quantitative research with multiple cross sectional study is required To measure the awareness, trail generated due to sachet launch, a large scale primary research is required after 30days of launch in other markets For feedback among lapsers of Tresemme, from the quantitative study we will choose the lapsers and conduct a in depth interview We can check is brand erosion happening or not by the above cross sectional study, however we have to do longitudinal study to understand the switch outs
  11. 11. CONT. In Delhi and Mumbai we took sample size of 685 each for larger size of target group for pre and post launch of sachet Because pre launch is less important than post launch, we took more sample in post launch phase for large metros We will use random sampling technique to determine the change in awareness, trial etc. in large metros and new markets such as telephone directory, voter card list etc.
  12. 12. INFORMATION AREAS Recruitment: -Sec -Gender -Age -Shampoo users Main: -Top of the mind awareness -Aided Awareness -MOUB -Trial -Repeat Purchase -Intention to buy in future -Physical presence -Preferred SKU -Shine, moisturizer, cleanliness, smell, nourishment
