There are some basic categories of supermarket shelves, such as dairy product fridge, canned food shelves, fresh fruit and vegetable, oil and spices/condiments shelves, frozen food, breads and grain/cereals, meat poultry and fish cases, snacks shelves and beverages (Jibrin, 2012) . Moreover, grocery store shelves divided into three (3) parts or levels for the product placement. The first level is eye level, grocery store usually place the most expensive and popular brand in this level. The eye level is the most important level, because this level is very eye catching for the customer and they could see clearly the product that put in this level (Matamalas & Ramos, 2009) .
The second level is hands level. In this level customer has an easy access to reach the product. The product that usually place in this level is cheaper than the eye level, but the brand is still a well-known brand. The last level is feet level, the cheapest product and private brand usually place on this level. In this level customer are more difficult to see and having accessed to the products (Matamalas & Ramos, 2009) .Grocery stores not always apply the shelves strategy like the above, so do grocery stores in Australia, Indonesia and India.
I. Australia
The grocery store in Australia placed the same product and a lot of brands of the product in one shelves, but they do not sort the products/brands based on the price. People could see the expensive product in the middle level while the cheaper one in the top level. Regarding to the private brand (ex : woolworth), it not always placed in the bottom of the shelves; sometimes the private brand placed in the middle shelves or even in the top level and also placed side by side with well-known brand. Australian grocery store tend to put smaller size product in the top and the bigger size in the…...

...Principles of Marketing T/Thurs Chapter 6 Activities: 1. The three television commercials designed to persuade buyers to view the products being advertised as shopping items would have to be 1) Abercrombie & Fitch clothing line, 2) Samsung for their 3D LED TV, and 3) CoverGirl makeup. The similarities for all three of these commercials are to sell their product to the consumers, entice consumers to buy their product, and have the consumers feel as if they need the product. Also, I would have to say that all three commercials are clever, effectively marketed. Each of the TV commercials is less or a little more than 30 seconds which depends on how much the company willing to pay for their product’s exposure. Each commercial has a target market they want to reach and the success of the product depends on the consumers buying their product. The three brands throughout the years have shown brand loyalty and I believe that it is what keeps them so successful and current. I want to start off talking about Abercrombie & Fitch; they are never out of the limelight. I would have to say they are the most controversial successful retail company that continues to push the envelope when they run commercials or poster ads. I truly believe that there isn’t any bad publicity for this company “controversy sells.” The market demographics are tailored to the young teenagers who have the disposable income to spend their money or have a say where they want their parents to......

Position Statements

...POSITION STATEMENT: (Unique Selling Proposition) Every TV ad is based on a position statement Don’t confuse this word ‘position’ with form or shape of a product, rather position statement would tell producer what he wants to achieve in the market and to pass on or communicate the core value of the brand Also it is a statement that is designed for customers to think like that. We associate Rolex with GREATNESS because in every ad they tell us that and hence we link greatness to Rolex. A positioning statement is not the same as a slogan or tag line though sometimes your slogan is based on position statement. A good positioning statement generally has 4 elements: The target market The need of that target market The name of your product The statement telling how your product satisfies the need and is different from the competitors. Example: For (1) families concerned about (2) safety, (3)Volvo builds a vehicle with (4) state-of-the-art safety features that give you peace of mind when driving." So now we clearly know that first of all we all need to think of a position statement for the product. We can achieve best results if we think of something that is not now associated with the company this time. THINK DIFFERENT here would lead to a good and different ad TECHNIQUES TO MAKE AN AD: Ad based on humor Animations – using animated characters Ads where actors don’t speak a word even and all is shown by the actions they do use of popular music Use of......

...engineering company located in Watford, a town on the outskirts of London just within the M25. The company manufactures a range of products, primarily systems for shelving and storage including adjustable and decorative shelving systems. These are produced for two main markets, corporate and retail. For the corporate market, the company supplies a variety of products systems to be used in design and layout of shops, factory stores, offices etc., where functionality is a primary factor. These products are supplied to wholesalers and also to direct users, often to architectural specification. The retail market comprises retail stores selling directly to the public for use in the home; these products, in addition to being functional, often also have to be viewed as aesthetically pleasing. During the 1990s, sales to the retail market increased dramatically as the company gained contracts to supply major retail chainstores in the do-it-yourself and home decor business, companies such as B&Q, Homebase, Wickes. The corporate side of the business tended to be relatively low volume but providing high profit margins; the retail side was relatively high volume, but was increasingly subject to pressures on price and therefore on margins. Over the past two decades, the company has also expanded by acquisition of other companies manufacturing similar or related products. By the early 1990s, production was based at two sites, Watford and in a town in Devon. At the Watford factory, which......

Using Marketing Mix to Effectively Differentiate and Position Your Product or Service.

...How can the marketing mix be used to effectively differentiate and position your product or service? What exactly is this Marketing Mix? Borden (ND) first coined the term following a discussion with one of his colleagues, Professor James Culliton, in 1948 regarding one of his manufacturing costs studies. In Bordens paper he identifies twelve pertinent points that form the marketing mix for manufacturers : Product Planning Pricing Branding Channels of Distribution Personal Selling Advertising Promotions Packaging Display Servicing Physical Handling Fact Finding and Analysis This was narrowed down around the 1960’s by Edmund Jerome McCarthy to the 4P’s which are used to this day. McCarthy et al (2002) state these as being : Product - the goods or services offered by an organisation that can satisfy the needs of the end customer. Place (Involves channels of distribution, logistics and distribution customer service) - essentially making the product available to the end customer. Promotion - providing the information to the potential customers so that can make an informed decision and, hopefully, make the purchase. Price - inclusive of all costs prior to reaching the end customer including transport overheads, margins etc, this is the price the customers pay for the goods. Differentiation of your product or service can take place within any of the 4P’s, From a Product point of view you may be offering one that outperforms the competition or......

...Product The marketing mix starts with product part so in this section of the paper will be discussed what does the consumer want and need from the product, the main characteristics and features of the product and also the best ways to choose branding and packaging. Low-involvement consumers This group of consumers mostly has low income and usually buy cheaper things without extra attention before buying a product. To selling goods for low-involvement consumers there are few main important factors of consumer needs and wants from the product. First of all low involvement consumers don’t spend a lot of time thinking about which windscreen wiper has the best quality and which one has to choose - because of habitual decisions. Their primary priority is price. For that reason “50% discount” or “buy 1 and other get for free” can really attract low-involvement consumers. Other important priority is product convenience. Mostly consumers choose those products which attractively displayed and easy to find. The windscreen wipers should be in the center of the store shelves. For consumers it would be eye-catching product. Also accurate information – consumers place a high value. They have to quick and easy understand what written about the product, how can use it (simple instruction) and why this product is better than others. For that reason on product should not be too much text. Main characteristics of......

...Executive Summary Focusing on the bottle design, Absolut Vodka launched their world famous advertising campaign, using the distinct differences combined with humor to reach out to their clients. Through joint direct sales activities in targeted bars and restaurants (strongly focussed on the “hot spots” within a city) Absolut quickly became renowned as hip brand in this community. Their sales force used high rotation in their sales visits with attractive promotional concepts and incentives, in order to tie in the bartender community into their image statement.

Originality combined with consistency in marketing were key elements in the achieved success, leading to repeated two-digit increases in sales, year after year and positioning Absolut as the 5th largest selling spirit brand in the world.

Their main strategy was to provide the best quality products in order to meet their customers’ expectation. They have been constantly redesigning and introducing new series of products, e.g. – Galaxy Series. Currently they are working on designing the lightest and slimmest phone of the world,along with an amazing powerful performance to gain an edge over their competitors. Samsung doesn’t have any particular tagline/slogan for the company as a whole; they prefer to use unique taglines for each and every product. They tend to promote and position their mobile phones/note/tab at all the 3 different levels of positioning. Two promo links have been provided below of their Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6, which specifies all the product attributes, values and benefits that customers might look out for, before they choose to buy it. Samsung doesn’t target any specific segment of the market, but mostly seem to serve the high-end people of the society, for e.g. – business people, young adults. When it comes to competition, we have noticed how Samsung has been in fierce competition with Apple over the last few years. There were even rumors of Samsung replicating the product design or specifications of Apple. Even though the dispute has settled down, the competition still remains to exist between the two rivals.

...Position Paper 1 Technological advancement during the Industrial Revolution ultimately laid the foundations that enabled the creation of a workplace that promoted efficiency, discipline, and coordination. This workplace has become a symbol for the shift from home industries to the modern industrial firm known as a factory. Technological advancement can be classified into two categories: macro-inventions and micro-inventions. Macro-inventions are technological advancements of sufficient importance that dramatically change the production process. Micro-inventions are minute alterations to preexisting forms of capital that serve to enhance or improve its performance. There is a great debate, specifically concerning the British Industrial Revolution, over whether successful technological change is based on breakthrough inventions or small, incremental improvements to known techniques. With changes in technology and the workforce came the centralization of employees. Centralizing the workforce dramatically changed the basic functions of a family and the household. Families adopted a new specialized lifestyle in which they had to adhere to the schedule of the factory. The in industrial revolution can be defined through a three pronged sequence of change: a small sector economy that underwent drastic technological change, as a consequence this sector grew exponentially, and this growing and advancing economy spread to surrounding sectors allowing for trade to occur. Technological......

...international discount retail chain, was founded by a man named Sam Walton. He first opened a store by the name of “Walton’s 5 & 10” in 1950. When the store became successful he wanted to go bigger which prompted him to open the first Walmart in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas. Walton wanted to have a store which offered low prices and still quality products. A lot of people doubted him and didn’t think he’d be too successful. They thought his low prices wouldn’t gain him enough profit to stay afloat. By 1967, only 5 years after opening the first Wal-mart, Walton owned 24 stores. The company went public in 1970 and by 1988 it was the most profitable retailer in the US. In March of 1992 Walton was awarded with the Presidential Medal of freedom by President George H. W. Bush. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award of the United States and it recognizes “exceptional meritorious service.” (infoplease.com) Not even a full month afterwards, Walton passed away on April 5, 1992 of cancer. His oldest son then took over as chairman of the the corporate board of directors. In 2000 Wal-mart.com was founded for US Customers to be able to buy products online.

...Position Paper First things first and here we must understand what addiction is “the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.” After such statement we need to think if we are familiarized with those descriptions. Here a deeper look is necessary to fully understand and reach its meaning. When stated being slaved, what can be understood from that, a person that does not have a choice in the matter, something or somebody else is in control and here the control is to a habit or practice or something. It can be either physical or psychological habit-forming, it’s a cycle that needs to be done every day and it gets to the point it can be harmful. Another statement might exemplify a little better what I’m saying here. “Anything any person does more often than is thought reasonable from the reference point of the describer is ‘‘addicted’’ to the behavior in question.” Everyone knows someone to be doing something more often than is thought reasonable. Some people can’t stop working out, other eating, getting connected to Facebook, phone texting. Is it harmful? The answer is yes; think about those that died or killed somebody for texting while driving, or eating so much that health problems starts to emerge. And when the word addiction is pronounced the first thing most people have in mind is alcohol, drugs, cigarettes. They...

...of analyzing customer behavior after the fact to being a tool that can help predict customer behavior in the future. This is an invaluable tool in the business decision-making arsenal. Where once companies found themselves in a reactionary position as for example point-of-sale terminals linking to your grocery store card or an email address and providing you coupons to that store or a particular items based on your previous purchasing profile, the very real ability to anticipate customer actions and purchasing habits is shifting to putting businesses in an advantageous position of anticipation and action – sometimes in near real time situations. This positions a company to examine and alter their inventory and supply chains to better suit customer needs better than ever before. Whereas in the past when analysis was reactionary, supplies and inventory may have already been purchased or ordered and careful analysis would have shown that those inventories and supplies were nearly superfluous and therefore contributing to waste and not contributing to margin. The proper and careful analysis of appropriate data of a company’s supply chain, be it product or service, tangible or intangible arguably leads to providing a better, more robust product and customer satisfaction. In this day and age, a company is nothing without knowing what the customer wants, anticipating it quickly and acting on it. To take this idea a step further, what companies are facing now and will only increase......

For example if one unit of labor in India can produce 80 units of wool or 20 units of wine; while in Spain one unit of labor makes 50 units of wool or 75 units of wine, then India has an absolute advantage in producing wool and Spain has an absolute advantage in producing wine.
