31 Suggestions Retail commissions are very low, so many shops do not want sell Relaxo footwear. Should focus more on Sparx and Flite brands which are more preferred products by the distributors. Focus more on fastest selling SKUs Spend higher on commissions and offer better credit terms to retailers Over-concentration in North India markets - RFL sells almost 65% of its products in the north Indian market thereby creating a very high dependence on the states of north India wile leaving a large market untapped. Company should expand distributor–retailer network to South, East and West India

32 Over 50% of the retail shops have managed to break even while the remaining continues to make losses. Should pursue a good mix strategy of few self-owned and franchisee models, to minimize risk and share risk with partners Focus on increasing presence in multi-brand retail outlets that has presence in malls and high street stores Should expand its self owned stores throughout India. Stores should focus more on spreading brand awareness in addition to improving sales In order to shift focus to parts other than North India, increase the sales force to cover all regions of India. 3rd party field force can be used for faster implementation of sales expansion strategy Improve exports in countries in Europe, Africa and other Asian countries
