Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 22 C. Product portfolio a) Length (of product mix): the total quantity of goods that the company sells. It is the group or set of product lines. b) Width (of product mix): the number of different products line. c) Product line: is a set of goods with similar characteristic. d) Line depth: number of products in a line.
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 23 D. Product Life Cycle (PLC)
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 24 PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE (PLC)Concept: It is the period of time from the introduction until the withdrawal of a product. TIME (Years) S A L E S (€ ) Product Life Cycle Curve STAGES PLC IntroductionGrowthMaturityDecline The product is new; there are low sales and slow growth. There are high costs of developing, making and advertising the product. Usually the product makes a loss. Adverts objective: Inform customer Sales increase when more customers buy the product. The production increases and costs fall (economies of scale). Competitors enter the market when the product starts to make a profit. Adverts objective: Differentiate from other products. The product reaches maximum sales and profits. There is more competition until the market reaches saturation. Adverts objective: Maintain or increase market share Sales and profit fall until the product makes a loss. Adverts objective: Remind customers
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 25 E. Packaging a)Importance. It is important because it helps to sell and to distinguish the product (differentiates) More so for Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) Examples of FMCG: chocolates, soft drinks… PRODUCTS THAT WE CAN SELL QUICKLY AT RELATIVELY LOW COST.
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 26 E. Packaging a)Characteristics: BEFORE BUYING Easy to identify (e.g.______________) Attractive (encourages buying our product) e.g._______________
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 27 Packaging characteristics Inform about its content for non transparent packaging (e.g. _________________) AFTER BUYING Easy to open (e.g. _________________) Convenient to use (especially if we use often) e.g. _________________________ Ease of transportation and storage e.g._______________)
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 28 F. Brand (trademark) a)Concept: is a name (pronounced), symbol, logo (image), slogan or design that distinguishes a seller’s goods or services in the market.
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 29 F. Brand (trademark) b)Characteristics: Short Easy to remember Associated with product (e.g.___________) Sometimes we use brand to talk about product (e.g._____________________)
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 30 Brand Strategies I.Global brands. II.Multibrands. Individual brands Product line brand Second brand III.Own-brands.
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 31 I. Global brands When the company uses the same name for all the products. E.g. __________________
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 32 II. Multi-brands Individual brands: we use a different brand for each product. E.g. Procter & Gamble, Henkel, Uniliver, Sara Lee
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 33 II. Multi-brands Product line brand: we use the same brand for similar products. E.g. Pascual - Zumosol
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 34 II. Multi-brand Second brand: Companies with an exclusive / luxury brand; they want to find another market segment (low price) to sell another brand. E.g. Rolex - Tudor
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 35 III. Own-brands When big supermarkets sell their own products, made by other companies, at a lower price. E.g. Dia, Mercadona, Carrefour
Pedro FernándezINSTITUT Milà i Fontanals 36 2.1 Price A. Concept B. Fixing prices - Market based pricing - Cost based pricing - Competition based pricing C. Price strategies - Price skimming or creaming. - Penetration pricing - Psychological pricing
A. Price concept Price tells us the money that a company can earn selling its product (revenue).
B. Fixing prices MARKET BASED PRICING It uses the market demand to calculate price. Demand is the quantity of goods a consumer wants to buy. Supply is the quantity of goods that a company wants to produce and sell.
Demand & Supply Law The basic law of demand and supply says: - If price goes up, then demand falls and supply increases. - If price falls, then demand goes up and supply decreases. - At the equilibrium, demand equals supply and we have a market price.
GRAPH: Demand - Supply Law & Equilibrium QUANTITY (units) Price (€ - Euros) Demand (curve) Supply (curve) Equilibrium 40 units (Qe) €10 Pe m (40 units, €10 ) As price falls Quantity of demand goes up As price falls Quantity of demand falls
B. Fixing prices COST BASED PRICING It uses production costs to work out price. It takes fixed costs and variable cost, and adds a fixed percentage of the cost of making the product, called mark-up. Selling price = unitary production cost + mark-up; production cost = fixed cost + variable cost
COST BASED PRICING: A Practical Example A manufacturer business has a production unitary cost of €20/unit. Find the selling price if the company wants to get a 15% mark-up. DATA: Cu = €20/unit Mark-up = 15% o/Cu SOLUTION: Selling price = Cu + Mark-up Sell. price = €20/unit + 0.15 (€20/unit) Sell. price = €20/unit + €3/unit = €23/unit
COST BASED PRICING: Exercise A small firm has a unitary: fixed cost of €10/unit and a variable cost of €5/ unit. Find the selling price if the company wants to get a 30% mark-up. DATA: CFu = €10/unit CVu = €5/unit Cu = (€10 + €5)/unit Mark-up = 30% o/Cu SOLUTION: Selling price = Cu + Mark-up Selling price = (CFu + CVu) + Mark-up Sell. price = €15/unit + 0.3 (€15/unit) Sell. price = €15/unit + €3.5/unit = €18.5/unit
B. Fixing prices COMPETITION BASED PRICING Sets price based on competitors’ prices. There are three possibilities: Similar price (for similar products’ features). Lower price (we earn more selling big quantities). Higher price (we have a famous product or better quality).
COMPETITION BASED PRICING If the market has a leader (e.g. Telefónica), Then other businesses can: Follow the leader (similar prices) Set independent price (it can provoke a price war)
C. Price strategies Price skimming or creaming Penetration pricing Psychological pricing
C. Price strategies Price skimming or creaming: company starts with a high price (market segment) and reduces it later (to increase the market). It is used for: - products with no competitors - new products (e.g. latest Channel) - fashionable products (e.g. New Diesel jean) - technological products(e.g. Iphone4) ____________) ______________)
C. Price strategies Penetration pricing: when a product has a low initial price to enter the market. When sales go up, the price is increased. E.g. New Airplane Company. ___________________)
C. Price strategies Psychological pricing: It is based on how customers associate a price with a feature of a product. TYPES: - Regular price - Premium prices - Price on customers’ expectation - Critical price point
C. Psychological pricing (TYPES) TYPES: Regular price (daily used product such as milk, tea, sugar…) Premium prices (or prestige pricing, for luxury products; e.g. Ferrari limited edition) Price on customers’ expectation (depending on customer satisfaction) Critical price point (e.g. €99.99 or €4.95) e.g.___________________) (e.g.______________) (e.g.__________________)
A. Advertisement a)Concept. b)Basic objectives (AIDA Model). c)Principles. d)Advertising media. e)Stages to design an advertisement message.
Concept of Advertisement It is a message that companies (firms) send to inform customers and/or to persuade them to buy a product. It uses a channel of communication or media so you need to pay (cost).
Basic objectives of Advertising (AIDA Model) A – Attention (attract customers’ attention). I – Interest (raise customers’ interest demonstrating advantages). D – Desire (convince customers that our product will satisfy their needs). A – Action (convince customers to buy, most important and difficult).
Principles of Advertising Be simple (don’t make them think too much). Be creative (your product will be different from others). Be repetitive (to remember the message: slogans, songs…). Be honest (you cannot cheat a customer twice).
Advertising Media (I) TYPESPROSCONS TV - Can reach a lot of people and target customers - Good for mass-market products - It is profitable - It is very expensive Radio - It is short, dynamic & very repetitive - Low cost - Can target listeners (only sound) - Small audience
Advertising Media (II) TYPESPROSCONS The Press - It is easy to target effectively. - It is silent and static. Poster & Billboards - Have high visual impact. - Many people see them - Only see them for a few seconds. - Limited information Internet - Global coverage - Low costs - Security problems - Great competition
Stages to design an advertisement message 1.Market research. The business needs to know: - If the product has a market. - If the product raises interest for futures sales. 2.Advertisement strategies. - Define the market segment (customers we target). - How much the firm wants to earn. - Show Special qualities that the company has to offer.
Stages to design an advertisement message 3.Advertisement message. - Media (the ads depend on the media we choose), e.g. magazines play with colour. e.g. TV plays with sound, voice, music. - Target audience (it depends on the market segment). e.g. small car, low price.

C. Intermediaries b)Functions: (they justify their added value) Physical Distribution. It cuts down the number of transactions between manufacturers and retailers. It makes distribution simpler. Financing. Wholesalers pay the total amount for the products to the manufacturer. This way manufacturer does not have to wait to charge.
D. Place Channels a)Concept: It is the route a product takes from the producer to the consumer. b)Types: Channel 1. Producer Customer (e.g. jewellery, it is important to give customer’s advice) __________ _______ _______ (e.g.______, (________ ______)
