  13. 13. Product Strategy Adopted by WOI Local Customization • Whirlpool studied the Indian market intensely, through quantitative and qualitative market research tools, with the help of IMRB and MBL India. There search team delved deep into the psyche of the Indian housewife, her habit, her attitude towards life, her schedule her every day concern and most importantly, her innate laundry wisdom. It was found that housewife wanted to gain direct control crucial household operations . • It was found that clothes washing was a daily activity for the women ,whether it was done personally by a maid or by a machine. That was a breakthrough insight used by Whirlpool for the design of all the washing machines, which adopted a “1- 2, 1-2” Hand Wash Agitator system to mimic the preferred hand wash technique.
  14. 14. • The target customer defined psycho graphically as the turning modernist was decided upon only after the initial MR exercise was concluded. This was only the stage at which the Unique selling proposition Whitest White was thrashed out. Reasons for Local Customization: • To reach the needs of the customers • As the Indian households feel a pride in self-done washing, they tried to satisfy them with their product • The various quality and quantity issues are dealt with and solved with new technology
  15. 15. Product Strategy Adopted by WOI In India whirlpool washing machine comes in different colors Like More color option – Green, blue, white It is because In comparison of China, Washing Machine comes in different colors like Light Blue, Grey , white
  16. 16. Price in the Marketing mix of Whirlpool •Whirlpool has been a brand that has earned the trust of the consumers through its policies and products. Amongst them is their pricing policy. A true pricing policy is supposed to be a gray area that hovers between the maximizing of profits and the costs undertaken without exceeding the market expectations. •In order to come at a definite strategy the company has set up a unit that decides and analyzes the various expenses that incurs during the production and the possession of the goods by the consumer. This knowledge in tandem with the pricing policies of the rival business firms is helpful in determining the actual pricing policy of the brand. Due to its organized distribution channels and resourceful warehouses, the company has been able to cut the costs of its products by quite a margin •Therefore, it has decided on a competitive pricing policy for some of the products and thus has created a consumer base for its products..
  17. 17. Price in the Marketing mix of Whirlpool •The company has also gone for value-added pricing strategies, as they understand that changing times have resulted in a new breed of customers that realize the importance of branded and high qualitative products. The overall pricing strategy of the products remains the same but some minimum price differences may occur within the different product outlets as they may decide to provide added benefits to the consumers to gain further customers and to enlarge their profits. •It is not possible for a large firm like Whirlpool, which is working in consumer durables and having numerous competitors, to work with one single pricing policy.
  18. 18. • Whirlpool has implemented a customer-centric strategy that focuses on making sure our products are appropriate for the Indian consumer. Different versions of the product are priced differently, but not according to differences in their costs. Whirlpool’s bigger success has been in the fully automatic segment (Rs.12,000- 36,000). This is smaller with sales of 177,600 units in 2000 compared to1.2 million units sold by Videocon (in the 7,000- 12,000 price range) • Price of Whirlpool Washing Machine is rupees 10,000 to 25000 and above Pricing Strategy Adopted by WOI

  20. 20. 1. Whirlpool Gives Storytelling a Spin in 2013 Promotion in the Marketing mix of Whirlpool •Marketing campaigns can get as routine as wash, dry, fold. So home appliance manufacturer Whirlpool gave its most recent campaign a fresh spin by throwing storytelling into its integrated marketing mix to drive sales and build brand preference.
  21. 21. Promotion in the Marketing mix of Whirlpool 2. Whirlpool Opts for Emotional Positioning in Ad Campaign in 2014 • The brand's marketing effort is designed to showcase the power of simple chores being able to drive bigger things that can make a difference in our everyday lives • Everyday chores aren’t typically attributed with fun, happiness and joy, and we don’t tend to think of them as emotionally charged; therefore, the companies that facilitate chores (typically home appliances – like washers and dryers – cleaning, dishwashers and microwaves – cooking) can find it generally more difficult to connect with consumers of these products in an emotional way, and to elevate their brand genuinely. • By focusing purely on the functional benefits of their products (time saving, energy saving, money saving, improvement, etc.), and, • By focusing on portraying chores (like doing laundry, making dinner) as a happy and fun part of life.
  22. 22. Place in the Marketing mix of Whirlpool •Whirlpool has manufacturing facilities at three locations in India to manufacture refrigerators and washing machines. Whirlpool has set up a Regional Technology Centre (RTC) at Ranjangaon, Pune, India, which mainly focuses on India as a major manufacturing centre for the Asia- Pacific Region. Whirlpool’s Pune research lab develops refrigerators and air-conditioners for Asia (including China), and Australia. •40 per cent of Whirlpool’s Pune research lab’s resources are devoted to its core research on global projects Whirlpool also has set up design centers at Pondicherry to meet the global business needs of the fabric care and small appliance divisions. •Whirlpool is exporting refrigerators and washing machines to South Asia, Asia- Pacific, Latin America and West Asia and is the largest exporter of home appliances from India.
