  • Who was the first Man to land on the moon? Neil ArmstrongWho was the second and third man to land on the moon….? Col. Edwin Aldrin, Charles ConradThis is a common phenomenon, that people remember only those who leads from the front or who has registererd his name first into our minds. We’ll always have a special spot for our first proposal to our GF/BF, but don’t care much abt the second oneThe same phenomenon is applicable with marketing firms also. Companies who come first into the market generally tends to rule the market.
  • They are big brands, but are market challangers in their respective segment.Many market challangers give tough competetion to the market leaders, and some times they overtake them.
  • Market leaders have stiffness in their spine. They don’t easily bow down to changing market demands.They are not open to criticism.General Motors were reluctant to incorporate new technologies into their portfolio. Toyota came and swept the market with innovative products and strategies.Market leader – 3M-> Xerox-> CannonSmall Firms – Bajaj comes second to Hero Honda. Instead of giving direct competetion it targeted smaller firms like LML Vespa.
  • After deciding whom to attack, firms try devise an effective attacking strategyFrontal Attack – Done on the opponent of euivalent size. Attacks are carried on opponent’s product, advertisement, price, distribution etc. Ex:- Dell attacked HP/CompaqFlank attack – Attacking on enemy’s weak spots.Encirclement attack – Attacking from all sides. Attacker has to have sound resources.Bypass attack – avoiding direct assualt on the enemy altogether. Attacker tries to diversify its portfolio in those areas where prsence of the enemy is minimalGuerilla Warfare – Small Attacks on enemies at different point of time.
  • Japanese companies do exactly that by adapting products from their western counterparts, improve them and re-introduce them into the market
