SIMPLE STEP FOR SUCCESS HOW TO TAP PLI/RPLI BUSINESS. PLANNING. Analyzing the Target.
PLANNING To understand the market demand for our products we need to understand “THREE Ps” P1=Population Pattern The customer who are buying and where they are located. P2= Purchasing Power Ability to purchase. This is based on income. P3=purchasing Pattern or buying behaviour. This is influenced by the life style, attitudes and sociological factors.
PLANNING Step 1: Prospecting :- Find the prospective customers, the customer who can buy and where they are located. List all Central and State government, aided institutions, banks, Railway, Telecom. Identify eligible customers in these institutions.
PLANNING Step 2: Qualifying Customer assesses whether PLI meets his needs salesman to show professionalism – Offer the product to meet the needs of customers Develop skill to discover customers true needs. Customer to evaluate our solution in depth Convince the decision maker to purchase
PLANNING Step 3: Overcoming Objections To handle objections the sales person has to have A positive approach, Ask the buyer to clarify the objection, Question the buyer in such a way that the buyer has an answer to his own objection, or turns the objection into the reason for buying ….
PLANNING Step 4: Closing the sales There are hundreds of closing techniques, and tricks, but the most important thing to remember is that closing a sale is not a stand- alone event but just a step in a process or starting of a relationship with the organisation.
PLANNING Step 5: Repeat business Salesman has to focus on building a long- term, profitable business relationship. S/he has to take ownership and follow up with the customer. The Satisfied customers are more likely to buy new policies, They may be willing to act as referrals for new customers.
Analyzing Target Analyze the Target given properly For example if allotted target is 1 crore sum assured in PLI How to reach this Target? 1 crore divided by 12 months = 8,34,000. To get 8,34,000 minimum of atleast 5 prospective customers are required every month. easily you can find prospective customers through your customer data base.

A COMPREHENSIVE MARKETING STRATEGY FOR PLI/RPLI
Location based marketing initiatives for PLI Marketing in townships Marketing at training centers Marketing at office clusters Central and state PSUs have setup townships with necessary facilities such as housing, schools, shopping complex, banks, hospital, playgrounds, club houses etc. Residents of such large townships spend most of their time within township and have limited interaction with outside areas PLI can carry out focused marketing campaigns in such townships to effectively reach out to large number of government employees Training centers of PSUs, nationalized banks, police, railway, post and armed forces provide induction training to new employees as well as refresher courses to existing employees on a regular basis PLI can conduct awareness and publicity campaigns at these institutes especially to target new joining employees Metro and urban areas have central business districts with clusters of Government and PSU offices. Examples include Churchgate in Mumbai, Dalhousie in Kolkata, Chanakyapuri in Delhi etc. Marketing Executive should conduct marketing activities in such areas to improve brand awareness and visibility to government employees working in such office clusters 1 2 3
Marketing initiatives for RPLI Marketing in villages Marketing at yatras and Melas Marketing through industry initiatives Marketing through government development programs In rural areas, people spend their time at locations such as tea shop, primary health centers, gram panchayat, village choupals and post offices RPLI should tailor its marketing initiatives (e.g. pamphlet distribution at tea shops, awareness campaign at village choupals) to target people residing in rural areas Yatras and Melas in rural India provide a great opportunity for marketing RPLI as people congregate in large numbers from nearby as well as far flung villages Large scale marketing campaigns at these Yatras and Melas would provide with better visibility and increase brand awareness of RPLI among rural population Corporates (ITC e-choupal, Tata Group’ Kisaan Kendras, DCM Sriram’s Hariyali Bazaar) have established a strong presence in villages by providing products and services such as agricultural advisory, retail stores, financial services and public welfare Leveraging these institutions would allow RPLI to leverage trust and infrastructure built by these institutions in rural areas Government initiatives such as NeGP and MGNREGA have been launched to provide social infrastructure and employment in rural areas These are typically managed and monitored by the educated people in the village. RPLI should target these initiatives to market RPLI products Marketing through Co- operative societies Local level co-operative societies fulfill the financial services requirements of farmers. Primary agricultural credit societies are important channel in providing short term and medium term credit to farmers. Apart from PACS, co- operative societies have been formed to fulfill farmer needs such as buying fertilizers, selling agri/dairy outputs etc. RPLI can target rural populace in particular farmer community by marketing through co-operative societies 4 Marketing through NGOs, SHGs and MFIs NGOs, SHGs and MFIs have strong connection with communities staying in rural areas. This can be used as nodal agencies to issue group policies to community members 6
